Norton has described a conceptual prank involving writing and executing a computer program that would output all possible melodies, theoretically providing the opportunity to claim copyright for all music.


Damn, sick prank

this proposal is weird and smashing together WIC, SNAP (food stamps), and USDA commodities (typically distributed via food banks) reeks of not understanding how something works. It's like when your grandma assumes your email address is directly connected with your physical desktop. You kinda get why she'd be confused, but...

USDA commodities, which they're proposing creating these boxes out of, are surplus crops. Totally undependable. It's kindof a nice system because farmers get market value from the government for their surplus, and then the hungry get the food via a chain of:
Farmers -> USDA -> Foodbanks -> food pantries, hot meals, shelters, etc -> clients

but yeah, the yield is variable and thus, USDA product only makes up around 20% of the food that a food bank distributes to hunger relief programs (the rest is donated goods from manufacturers and bulk sourced items). The government would have to start paying a lot more to source consistent boxes.

And how the hell would you distribute them? With SNAP, people sign up at Job & Family Services, get a card in the mail, and go to the store. Sometimes I do direct distribution of grant-funded boxes, and last week it took a staff of 4 of us all day to distribute 100 boxes in a low-income high-rise (densely populated) of seniors (who are mostly at home). Can't imagine the manpower to get boxes to rural working people

tbh i don't know shit about WIC



Thanks for posting this, Ankh . I was just standing there thinking about this and realized I know a bunch of stuff now I didn’t this morning thanks to you making the effort. Unless you were making it all up :?

a guy at MIT did this a while ago with 'prior art' to underscore the inane and easily exploitable nature of the patenting process
