Open source approaching the Singularity helps against unfriendly human group intelligence http://www.longecity...post__p__471153 acting to kill off all life http://www.longecity...earth-required/ with the non-AI-research in particle physics.

Despite of the ever increasingly dangerous experimentation with the LHC, CERN has managed to issue version 1.1 http://www.ohwr.org/...ts/cernohl/wiki of the Open Hardware Licence (OHL) that was written for CERN designs hosted in the Open Hardware Repository (OHR). It can also be used by any designer wishing to share design information using a licence compliant with the Open Source Hardware http://freedomdefined.org/OSHW definition criteria.

Extraction from http://press.web.cer...1/PR08.11E.html on 7.7.11: "For us, the drive towards open hardware was largely motivated by well-intentioned envy of our colleagues who develop Linux device-drivers," said Javier Serrano, an engineer at CERN's Beams Department and the founder of the OHR.

The current limitation, much electric energy consumed by any large computer and the production of such, is getting manageable after all. Here http://www.longecity...post__p__465677 are the revelations about solar from a forum member with watt in the name.

Good news for the Linux community !!


Not only good for Linux users, but likely for others and eventually coming generations on Earth too.

Large business corporations have become entities of ever growing intelligence. However, those are certainly not only some of the large corporations like Intel and IBM whose very names are reflecting the word Intelligence in part and (Intelligent) in whole. Nobody receives more love and attention from any dominating democratic government but large business corporations and science organizations. The latter are conducting large, and - over a long time - potentially more dangerous research experiments in genetics, particle physics, etc.

While large experiments in the fields of natural science seem to be getting less dangerous on a local scale and more dangerous on a global scale, we are facing a different danger from very beloved business corporations too. Since very much love and attention comes from developed countries who are going to make their populations join the approaching Singularity within the usual cash flow from hard- and software purchases, we are just faced with small problems and not very great risks in small local places, like local terminals from programmers creating malicious software for online hacking or eventually some modified hardware for access and intrusion into local computer networks.

However, Linux comes in many flavours. They taste like software programmed from open source code and distribution of an operating system with many applications. The diversity of programs is sufficient for providers that cannot pay for much marketing, because it's often downloaded for free and sparsely sponsored by donations. If there are global risks like unstoppable growth with some rogue artificial intelligence, then it would most likely come from large business corporations producing supercomputers. Linux would not be so much involved, its diversity got very much bound to various hardware limitations from many local terminals. Or would there be something very remarkable like a new kind of quickly growing governmental support for Linux programmers towards the production and selling of open source supercomputers?

Yup and there's room for both?

 

A.I.'s will take over the donkey work shortly and we will carry out our dreams
