Facebook's Zuckerberg Says The Age of Privacy is Over Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg told a live audience yesterday that if he were to create Facebook again today, user information would by default be public, not private as it was for years until the company changed dramatically in December. In a six-minute interview on stage with TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, Zuckerberg spent 60 seconds talking about Facebook's privacy policies. His statements were of major importance for the world's largest social network - and his arguments in favor of an about-face on privacy deserve close scrutiny. Zuckerberg offered roughly 8 sentences in response to Arrington's question about where privacy was going on Facebook and around the web. The question was referencing the changes Facebook underwent last month.

Къде са роботите? - част втора « Научен форум - Новини за наука, космос, материя и енергия, медицина, генетика, природа Подходът „от долу на горе” Това е вторият и сравнително нов подход към решаването на проблемите на изкуствения интелект. Учените се опитват да наподобят еволюцията и начина, по който се учат бебетата. Видяхме колко трудно е да се създаде човекоподобен робот, който да се ориентира в стая пълна с предмети, по метода от горе – надолу, но прости, насекомо подобни механични роботи, без никакъв начален софтуер освен изкуствена невронна мрежа, се научават да маневрират в такива стаи за минути. Един от адвокатите на подхода от долу на горе е Родни Брук – директор на Лабораторията по изкуствен интелект в МТИ. По времето на създаването на COG, една от участничките в експеримента забременява и учените се обзалагат кой пръв, в рамките на две години, ще се научи да се адаптира в реална среда, COG или нейното бебе. Например, един от най-сложните изкуствени невронни мрежи съдържат около 100 милиарда изкуствени неврона, но по ефективност на работа не могат да се сравнят с червея – C.elegans, например.

Facebook privacy: a guide - Ars Technica Everywhere you look (even here at Ars), there are articles about people making poor decisions about what kinds of info and how much to share on sites like Facebook. The Internet is no longer a place where you can hide out easily—friends, family, and employers are all lurking, reading your embarrassing status updates and checking up on those drunken pictures from last week. And that's just the beginning—the world of social networking is a feeding ground for identity thieves and stalkers, too. But it doesn't have to be that way. If you don't want to be socially available at all, then the solution is right in front of you and you can stop reading!

It is just one of the thousands of posts that we have on the How To Integrate Facebook With WordPress « Smashing Magazine Advertisement Facebook is one of those Web phenomena that impress everyone with numbers. To cite some: about 250 million users are on Facebook, and together they spend more than 5 billion minutes on Facebook… every day. We did some research to find out how the integration of Facebook with WordPress and vice versa works, or — in other words — how you can present your WordPress blog on Facebook or use the functionality of Facebook on your WordPress-powered blog. 1. Integrating a WordPress blog into Facebook is actually quite simply achieved via the Facebook API. The applications sustain themselves through earnings generated by displaying advertisements, which also makes Facebook an even more attractive platform to develop on. Plug-In Installation and Configuration John Eckman developed the WordPress plug-in Wordbook in early 2009. To access a blog via Facebook, you need to first grant access to the application. This makes it look as though Facebook serves merely as a simple feed reader.
