I want to learn to code, I know absolutely nothing as of now. If I enjoy it I might make a career of it (I'm 21).

A couple questions

>Should I buy a book like Programming for Dummies?
>Is a college education necessary/will I be paid more with one?
>Good starting language (I was told C is a good place to start)
>If you code for a living, do you enjoy your work?

Also tips and tricks for newbies

So im thinking about ordering the raspberry pi B and using it as a desktop computer. First off I don't know shit about shit. So if anybody has any information I could use or save until I decide to go through with it, it would be greatly appreciated.

Rpi = Overpriced, overrated broadcom equipment

Use a beagleboard if you want low power ARM and freedom to hack, buy pretty much any small 686/486 board for general use.

So we all know Google/Facebook/etc. acquire and sell your usage data. My question is whether or not there's a bottom on that market.

All data brokerage firms have only been getting paid less for the information they provide, year-over-year. In addition, Facbook tracks EVERYthing, including things you wrote and then deleted before sending, and how often you visit the movie fanpage for Biodome.

How much is this is relevant to advertising? What advertiser would ever use such specific criteria? I believe it's a case of having the largest portfolio on a person, as opposed to the most relevant.

Facebook's acquisition of Oculus makes sense in this regard. They're running out of useful data to capture and sell, especially data that can only be uniquely provided by their service (and thus makes them more valuable to ad firms).

Obviously, there will always be a market for people's data, but given the rapid rate of internet adoption in countries, and the precipitous drop in revenue per user, how long before simply tracking people becomes an unsustainalbe market strategy?

Programing is really just variables and IF statements and nothing else at its core.

What is the best analogy for net neutrality that I could use to make Luddites understand?

I've used something like, "Imagine if Ford owned the roads and limited access to Chevy or Toyota dealerships unless those companies paid them."

I think I could do better, though.

>> No.41569502


It's exactly like cable companies. It's as simple as this: People have gotten used to not having to pay extra for TV. They can now get everything from the internet. Now it will be like 20-30 years ago again where you've got a service provided by your cable company and have to pay more for things like HBO or HD sports channels. Basically everything is more expensive

On top of paying for internet access you're paying extra to even fucking use the internet in the first place. No more browsing whatever you want wherever you want. At a place with internet that doesn't have access to certain websites? Tough luck you're fucked

>> No.41569535

Imagine if roads were designed to slow down your vehicle and only Chevy and Ford brand cars are allowed to take the smooth fast-lane on the very lefthand side because Chevy and Ford paid them money.

Does anyone use dwb with a 4chan extension? I can't seem to get any to work. I've tried the one listed in the wiki.installgentoo.com and made it executable and put it in ~/.config/dwb/greasemonkey but it doesn't seem to work.

When I click on the catalog there is an option to 'switch to 4chan X's catalog' but it takes me to a non-catalog page, so I don't know if the extension is recognised and just not working or if dwb isn't picking it up at all.

How do you use userscripts (greasemonkey type) in dwb?
