Google Seeks to Organize All of Human Ignorance

Mountain View, CA. Having organized all of human knowledge, Google has announced plans to organize all of human ignorance. At a recent press conference CEO Eric Schmidt explained: “I asked our engineers to describe to me the largest computational task our company could undertake. Several of them said that organizing human ignorance is a task no other company could undertake. Admittedly, human ignorance is vast -- perhaps unlimited – but our goal is to organize all of it. Consistent with our mobile strategy, we aim to provide anytime, anywhere ignorance.

Last month we did a brief test organizing a small portion of human ignorance. The process so strained our servers that they melted the steel shelves they sit on. We had to take the servers off-line to cool them down.

You might be wondering: 'What would be the advantage of having all of human ignorance organized?' Well, suppose you were seeking to do a particular task and wanted to know all of human ignorance related to that particular task. In a split second Google will deliver to you just that targeted ignorance you're looking for.

Announcing Project Virgle

Virgle's goal is simple: the establishment of a permanent human settlement on Mars. Larry Page, Sergey Brin and I feel strongly that contemporary technology is sufficiently advanced to make such an effort both successful and economical, and that it's high time that humanity moved beyond Earth and began our great, long journey to explore the stars and establish our first lasting foothold on another world.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
