I admire Christos Papadimitriou for his unconventional character and dressing and his thoughts.
a decade ago I ve read one of his english literature books and found a small logical error and emailed him to notify him and I told him that someone else must have told you already (equinox)
He replied and told me no and thank you.
So I just finished logicomix and it is great but I couldn’t help but notice the mad scientist cliché and someone after reading it may think oh good thing I was not so much into math or else I might have cracked my brain and go mad.
I mean most of the heroes are mentioned to have been mentally ill and nobody knows what that could mean in the beginning of 20th century so yeah apart from that and the robbery in omonoia near the hookers, yet another cliché, what a great modern work
Still waiting for the computer one though
We’ll know what may have happened in a decade.
Until then, they failed to control the information torrent not sure why though… It’s not that hard really, Internet is easily controlled
You can check out and you can actually leave.
EU always supporting the super rich elite is no good union.
How out brits will be no one knows and if the long run that’s for the best we will see but project fear didn’t work again as it didn’t work in the Greek referendum. But we are a protectorate, where as Britain is not.
EU needs democracy not elite lobbyists and behind the doors meetings full of bureaucrats. The parliament is a joke, eurogroup is not official yet has fucked four countries and counting.. Juncker should be prosecuted for money laundering see lux leaks, still he is the head of the unelected and unaccountable eu commission.
It’s more of a England exit btw
is that he always has this apocalyptic view on something from the future, when two years later he can say the opposite. I guess he still wears Google Glass Everyday? (cause I see some VR crap on his head now). All this can be accepted as his own opinion. But to say that Tim Cook is not like Jobs because
Cook doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who can get a superhuman effort out of a development team, either, the way Jobs could. Which is important for focusing a team on a market window. Lets be honest, most of the world’s great products came with quite a bit of pain on behalf of employees. Will Cook’s nicer way of working work at Apple to bring us a world-defining product? The jury is out.
Yeah let’s be honest, you don’t have anything to back this claim, so you just said Let’s be honest so anyone can agree with you in a happy smiley american way. GTFO
“The jury is out” was clearly added later, because the whole document attacks Cook’s way of doing business in Apple. Yeah he lied continuously to stock owners. But that doesn’t make Jobs’ superhuman effort which make the employess suffer a bit of pain a true story: I mean Jobs made a team in Apple back in the 80s which main focus was to make fun and trash another team inside Apple. And you know what happened in late 80s to Apple right? Or he ultra spending on the NeXT logo
Unsubscribed from his blog, couldn’t stop me from trashing him here though
