This evening's listening pleasure is provided by Charlie Haden and his  'The Private Collection' - a bunch of superb live performances at intimate gigs. Meanwhile I shall be cooking vegetarian and pondering a new Bonk concept for a corporate commission we got. (Megalomania needs feeding).

And discussing pop-ups with Klaus. He's brilliant at cut-out print assemblies like those kids' books where things 'pop-up' in "3D" when you pull open the pages.

I need to get down into nitty-gritty on DSL and see if it's worth the bother.  All I want is a simple stand-alone OS that (1) works, so I don't have to write hardware drivers, (2) doesn't have huge gaping security holes, and (3) stays the hell out of my way.

The biggest problem with Unix is the Unix OS people.  All they know is Unix OS and they have to keep fiddling around with it to justify their existence.

My understanding is that Windows has a TON of security features in it these days, mostly unseen by regular PC users. There's complex support for smart cards, for example, and encryption, and hard tokens, and a hefty licensing system. These are all important in secure environments, especially the military and corporations that worry about that sort of thing.

For now it has to run on the application layer of a vN machine.  May not always be the case.  I cherish delusions hope at some point we can convince some entity, somewhere, to throw some money into some computer architecture R&D and at that point it would be nice if I could quickly and easily "dissect" what I'm working on at the moment so it can plug-in the new hardware design.

For example, there's a ton of work published in the last 15 delving into "biological based" cybernetic systems, mostly dealing with robots.  Swarm robotics leading to Swarm Intelligence is, for me, particularly interesting in a couple of different areas, along a couple of different axis.

None of the 'nixes are good at massively parallel computing, or at associative searches.

There's already a lot of interest in using spare GPU capacity for performance computing, but there's a limited amount older OS models can do with that idea.

There's going to be a push towards affordable hundred- and thousand-core chips over the next few years, but there isn't - yet - any modern OS that can work with them efficiently.

While in Unix-like systems "everything is a file", on the System i everything is an object, with built-in persistence and garbage collection. It also offers Unix-like file directories using the Integrated File System.[2] Java compatibility is implemented through a native port of the Java virtual machine.
Aha. But is that what "a 21st century system" means?

(Dunno if AT will agree but, in a way, going from files to objects is like going from set theory to category theory in mathematics)

Liberal Democrat Voice: Phil Bennion MEP takes up seat in European Parliament (15th February 2012)
The Staffordshire farmer and economic policy expert takes over from Liz Lynne who stood down from Parliament earlier in February after more than 12 years due to the extensive travelling required in the job. He was elected to second place on the [West Midlands] Lib Dem list of candidates at the last European elections in 2009.

I am determined to fight for the vital interests of the whole of the West Midlands region in the European Union and for a more prosperous and democratic Europe. From the shire counties to the manufacturing heart of the nation in Birmingham, this region's economic and environmental future will be shaped by our relationship with the EU.

...

I have always been pro-European. I am a strong supporter of a more liberal and democratic EU that concentrates on what it should be doing as simply and efficiently as possible. We are stronger together and would be much poorer apart.

Disabled people face unlimited unpaid work or cuts in benefit - the documents | Politics | guardian.co.uk

We've had a lot of interest in our story on disabilities published last night. Many of the comments that have been posted express a sense of disbelief at the Department for Work and Pensions proposals. After discussion we thought it appropriate to release more of what we have for readers to view.

The story was based upon a tip-off about what the government was about to propose. We also came into receipt of documents from a meeting of 10 DWP officials and 21 disability and mental health stakeholder groups - charities and representatives - which outlined the basic elements of the policy. The meeting took place on 1 December 2011.

We've decided to upload the documents which are first, a Powerpoint presentation on the new Work Experience policy for the ESA Wrag group, and second, a question and answer session after the presentation as minuted by a DWP civil servant.

Minister's anger over 'job snobs' opposing Tesco work experience for unemployed - Telegraph

Opponents of the work experience scheme have in recent days claimed it is tantamount to "forced labour" and "21st century slavery", after it emerged that some of the positions offered included night shifts of shelf stacking for Tesco, the supermarket giant.

Until the Coalition government changed the law, it was possible for anyone undertaking unpaid work experience to lose their benefits.

As well as allowing young jobseekers to keep their benefits during eight weeks of unpaid work experience, the Department for Work and Pensions has found voluntary placements for people in supermarkets and other employers.

The state has supported people with disabilities since the Elizabethan (Old) Poor Law of 1601 ordered the raising of taxes for the 'necessary relief of the lame, impotent, old and blind'.

I recall that my first inkling of 'Race' was a post-war cartoon in which a laid back black GI (laid back = his helmet was unstrapped and socks handing out of his boots), was pointing a rifle nonchalantly at a baffled surrendering SS officer. "Iz you iz, or iz you ain't mah Nazi?"

From a childhood knowledge limited by geography schoolbooks illustrated with nimble naked natives shinning up coconut trees, or a strip in the Dandy comic that depicted Africans with skin so black and shiny it had window reflections, and of course a bone through the nose, this cartoon was a revelation. One, that blacks fought in the war; two, that they had different speech patterns; and three, uniform could be casually worn.
