schestowitzqu1j0t3: at least 13 spills in a monthApr 13 03:49
qu1j0t3:[Apr 13 03:50
schestowitzthese are not even "oil companies"Apr 13 03:52
schestowitzlike the copyright cartel is no music/film industryApr 13 03:52
schestowitzit should be called oil-extracting industryApr 13 03:53
schestowitzor oil-passing companiesApr 13 03:53
schestowitzthey don't make oilApr 13 03:53
qu1j0t3good pointApr 13 03:53
schestowitzthey mostly do the pipes and the filtering, and enjoy public protection for itApr 13 03:53
schestowitzthey use nature's resources and get monopolies on those, like Rockefel;ler didm, that;'s how he got rich, and bought the competition to drive prices higherApr 13 03:53
qu1j0t3and massive subsidies...Apr 13 03:53
schestowitzthe music industry is artistsApr 13 03:55
schestowitzoil industry does not existl it's usually the outcome of biological degradation, or deathApr 13 03:55
schestowitz+oxygen+sun energyApr 13 03:55
schestowitzthe energy is mostly derived from the sun, fdirectly or indirectly, so call the Sun the "oil industry"Apr 13 03:56
schestowitzPhotosynthesis+oxygen for burning make energy, coal, oil..Apr 13 03:57
schestowitzSo one way to put it is:Apr 13 03:57
schestowitzthey have not found a wa to privatise oxygen, yetApr 13 03:57
schestowitzmaybe clean air would sell well in industralised parts of ChinaApr 13 03:58
schestowitzBut they did manage to privatise and make people "rich" based on their processing of Sun irradiating stuff.Apr 13 03:58

schestowitzI notice that any grocery which has really good third party coupon, usually is quite unhealthy.Apr 13 12:54
schestowitzAlso, I'm the guiltiest show-roomer ever. In retail stores I ignore sales people with the same psychology as the homeless people on the street. They don't want to talk with me; it's great!!! I just go in, look thoroughly at what I want to see, and leave. If a do get cornered by a sales person, they try to size me up (while being my friend.) So I just tell them I'm a retail analyst for a hedge fund that's looking at their Apr 13 12:54
schestowitzstock. That will put them on good behavior and knock out their sales incentives. If I'm a real bastard I tell them I'm looking to short their stock. Haha.Apr 13 12:54

schestowitz 13 13:16 #Mozilla lost its head very quickly, not a good sign 13 13:17
schestowitz"2-3 years is a normal tenure for a CEO at a tech company, so this isn't a sign at all. Actually, when Kovacs started at Mozilla, his plan was to be there for a period like that, and the organization's plan was to bring him in to make the quite challenging turn into the mobile world, which he had quite a bit of previous experience with. Now Firefox is often seen as the best browser on Android, and Firefox OS phones are Apr 13 13:17

schestowitzshipping in the next months, even before Kovacs will actually hand over to his successor. He feels that what he has been hired for was successful, so it's time to move on. Mozilla has grown enough on him though that he will stay around as a member of the board. So he's not even completely leaving the ship. I would say that is actually a good sign after all. :)"Apr 13 13:17
schestowitzThat's relieving to hear. Iconic figures like Mitchell, Asa, and the French developer whose name I can't recall -- those are the ones whose departure would be worrying. Didn't Eich work for Mozilla until recently or something? Maybe he's still in. And I think Hub from Novell joined Mozilla - he's a good developer -- turned Mono menace Tomboy into Gnote in C++.Apr 13 13:18
