So here it all is.  It doesn't seem like a lot of people want to post here yet, so tell me what you think and suggest to make it interesting.  I don't want this forum if nobody's interested, so air your opinions

{Here}

Richter

Being a lover of shiny gadgetry, useful tools, and developing technologies, I like the idea of this.

I'm seeing so far its about hashing over of the ramifications of new developments. 
I'll also use it to fill the space between asking tech experts and asking anonymous given half a chance.  (No pulled punches here, but higher incidence of serious advice, and no one trying to sell anything.)

Your creation, so feel free to drop a mission statement of what you think fits / doesn't fit.

Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

Anything you think uses engineering or science to impact society is to be posted here and compared to relevant phenomena/events.  This is for the purpose of better understanding where technology will lead our BIPs, BE's, and other perceptual grid metaphors.

We need some random place to discuss nerd woes and triumphs.

Example: I just somehow managed to piss my virtual machine off like whoa, to the point where all of my vmtools/drivers were broken. And then i fixed it, and im still not entirely sure how i accomplished either one.
We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human
