Kano OS — Beta for Raspberry Pi (by TeamKano)
“But the important thing to realize is that Mt. Gox is just one company using bitcoin. The bitcoin technology itself is still absolutely amazing," he said. "Even if one email service provider is having a problem that doesn’t mean people are going to stop using email. It’s the same with bitcoin.”
“GZA has lectured at Harvard, Oxford, USC, MIT, NYU, Cornell, and JPL/NASA. In his travels, he has met with a myriad scientists to seek inspiration for his forthcoming album entitled DARK MATTER, which will be released Spring 2014. The project is a natural extension of his longtime fascination with the cosmos. “I will take a quantum leap and discuss the universe while taking us on a journey through deep space. Traveling at lightspeed from the galactic center of one galaxy to the farthest corners of another. I hope my listeners will enjoy this cosmic adventure within a world of colossal planets, gas giants, meteorites, comets, and asteroids in the most extreme conditions.””
the countercultural Yippies attempted in 1967, to levitate the Pentagon via concentrated psychic energy (an effort that, as I recall, never got off the ground)
“Cosmic ray induced computer crashes have occurred and are expected to increase with frequency as devices (for example, transistors) decrease in size in chips. This problem is projected to become a major limiter of computer reliability in the next decade.”
“For this formula game is carried out according to certain definite rules, in which the technique of our thinking is expressed. These rules form a closed system that can be discovered and definitively stated.”
“Several schools of the philosophy of mathematics ran into difficulties one after the other in the 20th century, as the assumption that mathematics had any foundation that could be consistently stated within mathematics itself was heavily challenged by the discovery of various paradoxes (such as Russell’s paradox).”
The first incompleteness theorem states that no consistent system of axioms whose theorems can be listed by an “effective procedure” (e.g., a computer program, but it could be any sort of algorithm) is capable of proving all truths about the relations of the natural numbers (arithmetic). For any such system, there will always be statements about the natural numbers that are true, but that are unprovable within the system. The second incompleteness theorem, an extension of the first, shows that such a system cannot demonstrate its own consistency.
De knutsel-kano: onder de motorkap van je computer
Ruim 760.000 dollar in tien dagen tijd. Dat enorme bedrag is binnengehaald door een nieuw project op crowdfunding site KickStarter.com. Kano heet het. En het is geen boot, geen gevulde koek, maar een computer.
"Peter M. Strait, a first-year at Columbia, said he was skeptical about the site’s future success," The Crimson reported on March 1, 2004. "Columbia already has a similar webpage, the Columbia University (CU) Community, which has features unavailable on thefacebook.com, such as an online journal."
