Here is a very amusing site where bunch of hackers discuss black hat techniques to game social media- they meet in the MJ website. LOL

But back to the funny twitter gamers
3 years ago, in a mock article I speculated what happened if Microsoft followed Google, and gave away Windows/Office for free while showing you ads. Basically whats the value of a single customer for 3-4 years worth of ads.
Well it seems like Windows 7, and Microsoft Word have made a quiet move to showing ads OUT of the browser and into the desktop program.
See screnshot on Windows 7, when even a simple Rich text document shows an ad for slidefest/powerpoint. Continue reading “Microsoft works on ad supported desktop programs”
I really enjoyed the Light Cycle race in Tron- so instead of naming this the Tron Legacy Review- I call this Light cycle review.
The movie is a geek must check it out- and the mix of music, models,cars, and lights can be heady at first. The younger Jeff Bridges looks like a BeoWolf, and his son is ok. But Olivia Wilde is nice- and the cars and bikes are superb. If you like playing video games then check out the free game at http://armagetronad.net/downloads.php Its called Armagedtron.
And boy the 80s was a great time for pop music and video games.
It has always surprised me- how my American friends who passionately support the First Amendment kind of always oppose the Second Amendment and vice versa. Being a non American- I would always take the Fifth.
An earlier Wikileak video of killing two Reuters Employees-and I am not sure who is right- American govt for restricting access to federal employees or Chinese govt for restricting access to Nobel peace prize.
or all the Govts of the world for all the cables they write. and all the journalists for all the stories they tell.
Merry Christmas anyways.
from Wikiquotes of another Indian.
Facts we would always place before our readers, whether they are palatable or not, and it is by placing them constantly before the public in their nakedness that the misunderstanding between the two communities in South Africa can be removed.
In this instance of the fire-arms, the Asiatic has been most improperly bracketed with the native. The British Indian does not need any such restrictions as are imposed by the Bill on the natives regarding the carrying of fire-arms. The prominent race can remain so by preventing the native from arming himself. Is there a slightest vestige of justification for so preventing the British Indian?
Classical Economics talks of the value of utlity, diminishing marginal utility if the same things is repeated again and again (like spam in an online community)
StackOverflow has a great way of measuring reputation – and thus allows intangible benefits /awards -similar to wikipedia badges , reddit karma. Utility is also auto generated like @klout on twitter or lists memberships and other sucessful open source communities online including Ubuntu forums have ways to create ah hierarchies even in class less utopian classes.Basically it then acts as the motivating game as the mostly boy population try to race on numbers.
in Stack Overflow- you can get buddies to upvote you and basically act as a role playing game too.
