  Perhaps, but not the portions of Blink that support server side extensions for Chrome web apps.  
  It's in that post.  The problem isn't V8 or Blink itself as technologies any more than Dalvik is a problem as a technology.  It's Google's strategic need to make sure they can't get cut out of the loop and the way to do that is to extend V8 and Blink and Chrome so that the client side stuff is open but it AND the standards are tailored for Google's back end services.   Forking WebKit is simply one of many precursors to making this happen just like forking Java was for...
  The example isn't V8.    The example is Java.   Google embraced the Java syntax and API Google extended it with the Dalvik VM and Android specific APIs. Google extinguished Java ME.   Now the objective for Android was an ecosystem where Google couldn't get cut out.  After China and Amazon Google could plainly see how Android has failed in this regard.  With Facebook it will be even more obvious.   For HTML5 and Javascript you can see how this pattern can be...
Yes. China was in constant unrest and war thru this period. Millions died and so they obviously did not have children. Millions more were displaced and had fewer children. It's hard to run with little kids and babies. Men were away fighting.You are ignorant of the suffering of the Chinese people during this period. Ask your elders that are still alive. They will be in their 90s though. Most are gone now. Ask the ones alive during WWII how many kids they had in this...
  Well sure...coordinating is a pain in the rear and having code for functionality you don't want leads to increased bloat and bugs.  With your own dev team and your own codebase you don't need to get consensus on design, features or schedule.  You optimize for what you need and want.   If you were going to invest a lot of money on devs anyway, total control is the way to go.   What is the downside?   Idiots who see this as a good thing for WebKit and the web simply...
  Yang Jisheng (杨继绳) is a right winger?  Mao wasn't responsible for the Great Leap Forward?  He didn't get demoted for it?  He didn't get back at Zhou, Deng and Liu and other moderates who took over via the Cultural Revolution?  Liu died in detention camp, Deng ended up in reeducation, and Zhou caved and survived barely.  Never heard of the first Tiananmen where folks honored Zhou and criticized Mao and the Great Leap?  I guess for you Deng is right winger too....
  I think you are the first person in the thread to get his criticism.     Kay gets that the multi-touch interface on the iPad is easier to learn.  His fear is that like speaking is easier to do than reading and writing that the iPad is a step backwards in terms of capability, especially in the context of symmetric authoring and consumption.   I think he's wrong about that and your example of minecraft is spot on.  Etoy's implementation may not pass muster for the app...
  We supported China against Japan.  We poorly supported CKS against Mao (that could have been better*) but supported Taiwan against the PRC.   The PRC has killed thousands of Americans in Korea.   The Chinese Exclusion Act was terrible.  So was slavery.  So was Japanese internment in WWII.  So was the slaughter of native americans.  Is there a defense for these?  Sure, we try hard not to repeat them.  Asking us to defend these is like asking Chinese to defend the...
  Bullshit.  I just posted 3-4 metal signs in China from a 2 second google.  Folks who believe and repeat racist bullshit without even the vaguest fact check deserve to be ridiculed.
  When I lived in NY we had metal bars and the perimeter wall had broken glass mortared into it to deter thieves from climbing over.  And an alarm system.  And metal doors and metal gates.   /shrug   Crime exists in big cities.  Unless you're out in a rural area the population density is the driver for higher crime rates.     Looks metallic to me.  Shanghai.     Another in Shanghai     Signs in Beijing       And another.   I call bullshit on signs.   As far as...
