Re: Science Saturday: The Economics of Artificial Intelligence (Karl Smith & Robin Hanson)

So, if the capacity to create these magic boxes appeared 35000 years ago, what would have happened?
A. Edible animals would have been hunted to extinction ... Followed by the extinction of humans....

Re: Percontations: Fear, Power, and Mortality (Robert Greene & Eliezer Yudkowsky)

Important point. How does he do it (in this case, dig up all the supporting anecdotes)? He works hard and just gets it done.

It drives me nuts when people in a room stare at each other and say...

Re: Science Saturday: Fie on Hooey (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I didn't watch the point about entropy being made but entropy is created in the process. The earth receives high energy, low entropy, short wave length light from the sun. The light hits the earth,...

Re: Chasing down energy

disclaimer: i'm not an expert and my response is just an informed judgement of the data as i see it (better than an opinion at least)

Chasing down energy

I just so happened to try an start figuring out what the big picture was as far as energy goes last weekend. I came to the same conclusion that George did, the sun is all we need ... not the small...

Big Environmental

I know it's not an original idea but I haven't seen it discussed on BhTV ... the goal (conscious or unconscious?) of the hardcore (mainstream) environmentalists is mass scale human population...

Amen to that (with apologies to Carl Zimmer and Sean Carroll)!

Re: Bob on Colbert

1. I was definitely disappointed when a meeting between two of my favorite people was such a dud.
2. I agree that Colbert was off his game and started things off poorly ... he came out blazing...

Re: Science Saturday: Mistakes Were Made (Robert Wright & George Johnson)

Two things:

1. Is there any discussion anywhere about Bob's dreadful appearance on Colbert. Please point me to the discussion. I'd like to hear what people are saying.

2. 'Jumped the shark'...

Re: The Evolution of God: Jewish Edition (Robert Wright & Mark Kleiman)

I haven't watched a single vlog since the book came out. Is the book any good? The God vlogs are certainly a major turn-off for me.

Re: Lost in the Cosmos (Robert Wright & Joel Achenbach)

For some reason Joel reminds me of Richard Lewis. He seems bottled up in angst or that's his schtick anyways.

I enjoyed the interaction.

Re: When Bobs Collide

Duly acknowledged. Nevertheless, the opportunity to bait you was too tempting to resist.

BTW, if you want to throw your considerable Bhtv weight around, tell Bob to make good on his promise of...

Re: When Bobs Collide

I don't think that I could prove in court that I'm not a nerd so I basically failed an IQ test. I'm of course aware of the theorem and all of its lore. I've even read Simon Singh's book about the...

Re: When Bobs Collide

As much as I hate to admit it, that sailed right over my head. I will renounce all my claims against Nate if you explain the Fermat angle to me.

Re: When Bobs Collide

Your submission is duly noted and rivaled only by Cramer's appearance on 'The Daily Show.' Apology accepted.

Nate appears to be in hiding but he cannot avoid ensnarement in my legal net.

Re: When Bobs Collide

Unless I'm missing something you, both you and Nate should be ashamed of yourselves. Nate is the only one who could get sued for IP theft though.

It looks to me, based on your citing, that Nate...

Re: When Bobs Collide

I was shocked to see the link to the comment dating back to October 2006. This is a clear violation of my own intellectual property (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/107?&in=00:55:02&out=00:56:10).

Re: Wall Street's House of Cards

Most of these guys were well past their prime when they signed on pretty much as role players (Boggs, Howe, Sierra). Chili Davis made the final out in the '96 series playing 3rd for God's sake...

Re: Wall Street's House of Cards

Completely off topic, I take exception to the common mis-characterization of Joe Torre's Yankees (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/18530?in=26:12&out=26:21). There are only two Hall of Famers on the...
