Zerodhero: teen engineering prodigy who gained national attention in 2002 when he and his family received identification chip implants on live television was killed in a motorcycle accident, authorities said.
silentfury: What if the RFID chip caused interference with his motorcycle?
Mutiny: just goes to show you that even if you can get microsoft certification when you're 12, you still might not be too bright.

the craftsman coder is dead!

Algorithm of the Year 1973!

coderman: OLD SKEWL YO
coderman: ... but still a classic.

Tries and Suffix Trees (similar but different (for the pedant in you!))

coderman: and they go and define something called a "suffix trie", you bastards!

Hierarchical Motif Discovery

coderman: "Splash can be used to exhaustively analyze a sequence database and produce a tree of sequence clusters based on discovered patterns."
coderman: "The approach uses the pattern discovery algorithm in a loop. First pattern discovery is run using the standard discovery options. If a pattern is not found, first the density constraint is reduced according to a user defined formula, then the minimum support is reduced by 5%, until a pattern is found or a minimum, user defined support is reached. "
coderman: "The most statistically significant pattern among all those found is used to generate a PSSM, which is used to split the original sequence set into two sets a "match set" and a "mismatch set". "
coderman: "The pattern is then masked anywhere it occurs in the match set and the discovery is repeated recursively both on the match set and on the mismatch set. This produces a hierarchical tree."
coderman: <IBM> HAHAHAHA, when monkeys fly out of my butt!

Secondary Screening Shown Silly

How not to get rich

hans reiser's (reiserfs) wife went missing.

Too little, too late journalism

DonFundoshi: regarding Bush govt's pending bill "authorizes the president to seize American citizens as enemy combatants, even if they have never left the United States. And once thrown into military prison, they cannot expect a trial by their peers or any other of the normal protections of the Bill of Rights."
DonFundoshi: described in the article as a 'compromise'
DonFundoshi: sure makes me feel pretty fucken compromised, alright.
seti: one dares not wonder what the president actually proposed - selling those people into sex slavery in the Middle East?

Zerodhero: And that pretty much somes up how my day will go tomorow


coderman: "Where Digg Submitters Pay for Digg Users to Promote their Stories. And, Where Digg Users Make Easy Money."

Digg democracy: Can algorithms trump human nature?

coderman: the magic 8 ball says "try again later"
coderman: "Digg, Google and Wikipedia are invested in maintaining their “as-is” status-quo, no matter how flawed." - ouch
coderman: "Not one of the three powerhouses can risk diminishing public confidence in the grandiose vaunted missions each espouses. The leaders of each of the flawed systems publicly evangelize a revolutionary worthiness of their endeavors to rationalize away allegations of abuse, entrenchment, spam, falsehoods, libel, infringement…with a “net-positive” argument."
coderman: someone should digg that article man

Museum Field Trip Deemed Too Revealing

coderman: no nude statues on our field trips, missy! FIRED!
coderman: where is ashcroft to save the day when you really need him??

Robert Anton Wilson needs our help

est: "In case the name doesn't immediately ring a bell, Bob is the guy who wrote Cosmic Trigger - still the best narrative on how to enter and navigate the psycho-spiritual realm, and co-wrote the Illuminatus Trilogy, an epic work that pushes beyond conspiracy theory into conspiracy practice."
est: seems to be legitimate
