from the urls we dig up dept

The human mind is often described using computer terminology — with the mind as the software running on our soggy brain hardware. The analogy breaks down in many ways, especially since our brains don’t actually execute instructions like CPUs do. However, there are still plenty of folks trying to “hack” our wetware to improve — or just change — the way we think. Here are a few quick links on ways to change the way people think.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Since I’m the first one I will just have to quote it and say what every one is thinking.

“Symptoms of borderline personality disorder include severe insecurity about relationships, fears of abandonment and constant, needy reassurance-seeking from partners.

Borderline personality disorder usually occurs in women”

“Unlike Windows, Linux doesn’t contain the hidden mind-control software known as Direct Retro-Memetics (DRM), which are designed to implant engrams into your brain much like how a retrovirus plants its DNA into a cell’s nucleus.”

“If you would like to get Linux up and running on your computer so you can run MindGuard and protect yourself from the forces of mind control, contact your local Linux Users Group (LUG). Ask for Tony and make sure you say you want the “MindGuard special”.”

Okay, Now I’m certain it’s parody.
