    1. A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Turing Galaxy:On naming the age of the networked digital computerVolker Grassmuck *Abstract:The most commonly used name for our era is that of the `information society,` which is a rather unexpressive and, strictly speaking, tautological term. The informatics & society scholar Wolfgang Coy, following the example of McLuhan`s Gutenberg Galaxy, has introduced the concept of the Turing Galaxy. The paper retraces the pre-history of the concept, its grounding in the fundamental breakthroughs of the British mathematician Alan M. Turing, the Turing Machine and the Turing Test, analyses the reception of the concept in a variety of fields of scholarship and asks for its value in the further debate on the knowledge environment of the networked computer.*Ph.D. at the Center for Advanced Science and Technology of Tokyo University and Media researcher at Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany

    1. Hindu dharma includes the religious duties, moral rights and duties of each individual, as well as behaviours that enable social order, right conduct, and those that are virtuous.[42] Dharma, according to Van Buitenen,[43] is that which all existing beings must accept and respect to sustain harmony and order in the world. It is neither the act nor the result, but the natural laws that guide the act and create the result to prevent chaos in the world. It is innate characteristic, that makes the being what it is. It is, claims Van Buitenen, the pursuit and execution of one's nature and true calling, thus playing one's role in cosmic concert. In Hinduism, it is the dharma of the bee to make honey, of cow to give milk, of sun to radiate sunshine, of river to flow.[43] In terms of humanity, dharma is the need for, the effect of and essence of service and interconnectedness of all life.[24][35]

    1. Each update to the database is an "individual json" which get linked together using an append-only log CRDT (https://github.com/orbitdb/ipfs-log) and you'd essentially serve that log. So instead of "one big json", it's "many small jsons" and the state (view) of the database gets calculated from those small jsons.

    2. Now, if we can have js-ipfs and go-ipfs nodes on desktop automatically act as signalling servers (if you start with a `--server` flag or something), we'll be able to decentralize the need for signalling servers as well, and remove another point of centralization.

They loved powerful tools such as EMACS and UNIX, not both-ered bythe painful weeksrequired to masterthe badly-designed command languages.The difficulty of eliciting knowledge from expertsled frustrated AI researcherstocollaboratewith HF&E, which shared the focus on non-discretionary use. The journal IJMMSbecame a major outlet for both HF&E and AI research in the 1980s, butnot CHI researchers.Early CHI conferenceshad a few paperson speech and language, cognitive modeling, knowledge-based help, and knowledge elicitation, but AI was not a significant focus.
