Although we won’t tell you what RBC stands for, we’ll let you know it doesn’t stand for intolerance and bigotry, therefore we will not be doing business with The Brown Coffee Co. anymore.

Just keep the hate to yourself. Sheesh.

    Really great game with really great music. A good listen on its own merits.

  7. Google and Universal Translation

    By not requiring native speakers, Google was free to provide translations to the most obscure language pairs. “You can always translate French to English or English to Spanish, but where else can you translate Hindi to Danish or Finnish or Norwegian?”

    Most people are quick to mock online translations, and they still have a long way to go, but there’s no question they’re improving. With the amount of data Google can access, I think services like Google Translate have as good a chance as anything out there now to transform the world. I’ve been telling friends for a few years that learning a second language isn’t as important as it used to be, and will ultimately be almost worthless as a skill set as  within a few decades. We’ll still need language specialists down the road, but if you can communicate across language barriers with 95% efficiency using something like Google Translate (and whatever comes of it), very few people will need to put in the considerable effort needed to learn the extra 5%. I’m very excited to see where this goes.
