    "1) That the Copy & Paste function provides an incredibly efficient method of transporting alpha and/or numeric data from one website to another as well as within the destination website. Imagine how labor intensive and error prone the manual procedure would be to post a paragraph quotation by a famous author or even a YouTube link to your music thread on this forum without this standard software. 2) That it holds the potential to focus in depth discussion on topics which published authors have studied and researched which exceeds the collective knowledge of the thread's contributors as occurs in Book of the Month Club conversations. 3) That both the length and density of the data being transported should not exceed a reasonable limit in any given post. 4) That negative criticism of the Copy & Paste function may serve to deflect focus on the thread topic itself. Hope these views have been helpful. My apology for the delay." Thread 166701 (Page 19)

    Definitely not a video I would watch twice. I think I must deserve a medal for watching nearly 50%. These guys are supposedly working in the same field. They seem to live on different planets. Was it supposed to be a debate? I fail to see in what way any of the parties was on the same topic. Each used this as an opportunity to talk about an area which is of interest to themself without linking it to the point of the meeting or to anything the others had to say.

    It kind of reminded me of the sort of conversations Basil Fawlty had in Fawlty Towers when he was dealing with the deaf old lady who won't turn her hearing aid on "because it runs down the batteries".

    Apropos reference for this disappointing video.

    "Fawlty Towers" was certainly one of the most entertaining comedy series ever scheduled on the PBS Television Channel.

    They were not. Foucault was a philosopher of history while Chomsky
    is a linguist. Hence they missed each other repeatedly. However, if you
    wait for your medal, you can read between the lines that the juiciest
    underbelly is their differing perception of the existence of an evolving
    human nature, the role of creativity in progress, and the longstanding
    break between American wishful thinking and continental determinism.

    Of course, your medal is still awaiting for you... if you have the intellectual
    curiosity.
