I read very quickly and carelessly, just to appreciate the story, but if the book is good, you can immediately re-read it to appreciate the details. There are books I've read 5 or 6 times.
Do you personally find this approach time effective?

Re: Article 13 and Article 11

I'm sorry for long due response, as I'm not an frequent reader. The less hackers know about how your code works the safer it is. Can you point me to some study that confirms that? It seems to me it doesn't play a big role, if it doesn't even have the opposite effect. I think, that brimstoneSalad is ...

Re: Robots VS Humans

Since Industrial revolution more jobs are replaced with machines but not all are prone to automation (only ones which can be divided into series of simple tasks). Imagination, creativity and ability to solve complex tasks are still human domain. My opinion is, that unless we build truly independent ...

Re: Best Source of Energy

The first 'negative' aspect was the thermal pollution, so I mentioned the cooling towers. According to her, they cool up some of the water, but not all of it, so it's still a problem? :? Found a good page about it (http://www.world-nuclear.org/information-library/current-and-future-generation/cooli...

Re: Advertising/ Expansion

I think, that using space on this site to promote related sites / businesses is a good idea that can be beneficial for both sides as long as it is non-intrusive. From technical point of view. Do you want to manage all advertisements by yourself? I think that Google has good algorithm for that and it...

Re: New lurker

Don't know about rest of Europe, but Czech republic don't have Whole foods chain. But there are many other brands (do you know for example Country life?). I also live in big city, so there is no problem to be a vegan. There are at least 10 places where I can eat within 10 minute walk from my workpla...

Re: Question for all vegans!

I have read articles saying that it's difficult to blame the consumption of meat for something as large-scale as climate change. There are many other factors which contribute to climate change, and if veganism was based purely on environmental reasons you would have to control all of them... which ...

Re: YouTube channel deliberation

I think in general the rational vegan pool on youtube is rather shallow; Unnatural Vegan and TVA are great but greatly outnumbered. We seriously need another rational vegan Youtuber. Unnatural vegan post less videos lately and they are not focused on nutrition as they used to be. I don't blame her ...

Re: Question for all vegans!

Your other reasons I had heard before - factories, environment, health, etc. I do have some arguments against them, but then again my aim here isn't to start an argument haha. And I'm pretty sure you guys are way more educated than me so I don't dare try! Please share your arguments against. Person...
