surely deserves whipping post regardless. ( he is to be counted, imho, right up there with the greatest american charlatans, with josephsmith, edison, gates, et al )

they're not using for proper lightbulbs anymore.

reading the article about him, and going 'neinneinneinneiennein!1111, banging head'
: in other lulz, latest visitors to my www, and then to nosuchlabs: employees of Wolfram
: i suppose the fiat world has burned these poor people so consistently (see the plouffe thing recently discussed, see the notorious wolfram
thing etc) it's just the default expectation. and then ~bitcoin~ is the scam.
defers to an oft-repeated meniism: "if you care about friendly AI, donate to stephen wolfram

: if mircea_popescu's ego cock at least fits on a cable spool, of the kind used to carry fiber on a truck, wolfram
