Out of curiosity... do you have a degree? I wonder if the businesses owner's background has any influence on the decision. "School is a place where former A students teach mostly B students to work for C students"

I do not have a degree. I was an honor roll student who slipped to barely passing grades in my last year. I did not go to university until my 30's, after I married a professor.

So I would have to agree that I fit that saying somewhat, but my C's were more the result of high school rebellion than lack of ability.

I work for a merchant also... high volume low ticket. My thought is: Since most of our customer transactions (swipes) occur without any cashier involvement - how would V/MC know that the "real" card wasn't present?

Exactly. Most of the merchants/ shops out there have no idea what my card should look like.

Makes we wonder - if somehow we could train our bodies to transfer memories to other body parts... which leads to all sorts of interesting possibilities.

Where would you draw the line? Why not simply monitor and track everyone everywhere all the time because hey they if they did something wrong then you'd be good to go with the proof... and we all know if you don't do anything criminal you don't have anything to hide...

Nice an RSS feed cleaner. I love how you remove the ads!

What Technology Wants by Kevin Kelly - I highly recommend reading this book. The title describes what the book is about ~ as a hacker it might just make you rethink everything you do.

Wow - after reading the comments on this thread I have to say that I am thoroughly disappointed in the HN community. If you replaced the word math(ematics) with a religion of your choice you'd see the same kind of fanaticism you often see from religious zealots.

The God of math has spoken: obey, conform or be cast out...There is nothing other than Me. All other gods require Me to make them whole - in fact you can't even think without Me... Now go forth and preach my wisdom because there is no other wisdom other than Me.

This may seem a little out there but maybe Google should buy MySpace and incorporate it into G+?

That is the exact comment I gave to Google (via the feed back link) when I changed back to the "old" version.
