Word of the Day
'Naupathia' comes from a Greek term meaning 'ship suffering.'
Quote of the DayComputer science only indicates the retrospective omnipotence of our technologies. In other words, an infinite capacity to process data (but only data—i.e. the already given) and in no sense a new vision. With that science, we are entering an era of exhaustivity, which is also an era of exhaustion.
- Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929), French semiologist.
