Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

A Turing Test of the Heart.

Someday, I feel confident, we will all replace those stupid little "type the word" verification tools and comment moderation features with something a little more... elegant.

And if that doesn't work, I suppose we're all just going to have to spring for those USB DNA sequencers,* aren't we?

* I recently saw the coolest USB device: it's a USB record player that allows someone to "rip" their old vinyl records to iTunes or other digital format. It's a really interesting melange of archaic and modern.

Re the footnote, someone asked me (big vinyl collection) whether I wanted one of those USB turntables, but I'd previously acquired a $35 USB dongle that does the same thing in conjunction with all of my analog sources (cassettes of friends' stupid punk rock bands, eh?). The catch is that it's not the digitizing that takes time -- beyond that listening to the vinyl, which has its own benefits -- it's entering the frackin' track metadata.

In point of fact, this is actually the coolest USB thingy to appear in a while. They don't call 'em dongles for nothing, it turns out.
