^ that link

they try to end it on a happy note:

Some scientists using the technology describe a future scenario in which homes and cars adapt services to suit their owners, automatically dimming lights, preparing food and selecting preferred television channels.

As great britain descends into a rwandan style massacre, perhaps we should call in paul kagame. He knows how to sort these things out, and has a special relationship with us

As an aside, what do you mean by jigaboo in this context? Isn't that an offensive racial slur?

Stef said...

...as was 'conspiraloon' until a few of us decided to take it back

OK, maybe not a racial slur

The origins of jigaboo in the context of this blog date back to when someone posted a link to this video in a comment

At which point I decided that I liked the word 'jigaboo' as a vaguely onomatopoeic alternative description of what some might call media 'brouhaha'

The 'jig' part has a nice stirring things up feel about it and the 'boo' bit is scary

That, and the fact that I'm a closet Klansman

sorry, kloset Klansman
