Nine Inch Nails released a new track.
It’s out and it’s glorious and cheerful and hopeful (as the title suggests) and you should totally listen to it and I can’t wait to see them and tell you again just how great they were.
Din când în când mai dau de câte un tip care îmi place să cred că e alter-egoul meu mai puțin leneș și cu mai mult talent care s-a apucat totuși să-și facă proiectu ăla solo și sună excelent. Anul trecut a fost Dan Bejar și al său Destroyer. Azi, Eels, a domnului E.
My problem is that I want to do so many things at once I end up doing none of them.
‘‘I think that it’s extraordinarily important that we in computer science keep fun in computing. When it started out, it was an awful lot of fun. Of course, the paying customers got shafted every now and then, and after a while we began to take their complaints seriously. We began to feel as if we really were responsible for the successful, error-free perfect use of these machines. I don’t think we are. I think we’re responsible for stretching them, setting them off in new directions, and keeping fun in the house. I hope the field of computer science never loses its sense of fun. Above all, I hope we don’t become missionaries. Don’t feel as if you’re Bible salesmen. The world has too many of those already. What you know about computing other people will learn. Don’t feel as if the key to successful computing is only in your hands. What’s in your hands, I think and hope, is intelligence: the ability to see the machine as more than when you were first led up to it, that you can make it more.’’
