I always love it when people give the middle finger to mathematical certainty.

- So tell me Bert, what are the odds of someone winning the Lottery?
- Well Ernie they're 7463258761983475693548625476542752:1 against. Only a FOOL would ever play the lottery.
- Hey look Bert, I have the winning ticket.
- Oh Ernie.

HEY! Maybe they're just "crowdsourcing" their feedback like the NYT and LAT in the story above???

Considering it's the babysitter for Corporateism's wealthy elite brats, it's not surprising to see anti neutral net designs and "studies" coming out of Stanford... studies coincidently funded by daddy's billion dollar endowment grants. Future monopoly capitalists all.

questing and events are created by the simulation itself ... eventually i want to see detailed plot elements handled this way
yupyup whatever name it goes by, Autonomous AI, Emergent Behavior, Spontaneous Storylines, whatever, this kind of thing will hopefully be the next big generational wave of exploration for devs to play with.

Wonder how much it would cost for a source code license, with English documentation.

edit: for clarification
such a game would be near-impossible to balance and test.
yeah saw that and it's an interesting statement because one axiom of AI based systems is that the designer should not be Able to predict exactly what will happen, he can know within a range of things what will occur but by definition it's Chaotic - random but bounded. Which alas makes such a system a biyach to test.

All the characters (over 1000 in number) in the Zone live and act irrespectively of the player. They carry out tasks, fight, move about the zone - live their lives. ... Simulation-controlled characters do quests, fight one another, rest, eat and sleep. You can talk and trade with neutral NPCs.... simulated events take place irregardless of player's actions
oooh getting pretty close to a Living World there. Add the ability for player actions to ripple thru the world and MODIFY the simulation rules and you've got it.

The tidepool phase and the transition to land (or not) seems the most interesting to me. Once your physical form is fixed and you're not evolving anymore it becomes mnore standard rts-ish. Like you have to imagine you're evolving socially, scientifically, etc. - not nearly as interesting imo.

Alarm clocks have build in DST switches? I have GOT to get me one of those!
Better than a switch, get one of those Universal Time Constant(UTC)-Broadcast Receiver clocks. They have a tiny battery powered receiver that picks up the signal from the US atomic time reference (in Denver i think). The clock auto syncs itself with the signal every few minutes. And they're no more expensive than any other clock.

I have a mechanical hour/minute hand model hanging on the wall and when 2am hits it's weird to see the hour and minute hands spinning around resetting themselves.

edit: i guess they're called Atomic Clocks
http://www.officeclocks.com/Atomic_Clocks.html
and the signal comes from Ft Collins CO
The U.S. Atomic Clock is operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Fort Collins, Colorado.

its basic data units -- called qubits -- can hold both the values 0 and 1 simultaneously , and instantly share those values among all the qubits.
i've understood the basics for a while but it still blows me away every time i read that.

The implications are staggering. There's almost Nothing you can't do with that kind of power.
