Traveling to PAX Today

August 28, 2008 -

Sorry for the lack of stories today... Had an early flight to PAX, including a mid-day change of planes in Detroit.

I'm in the cab at the Seattle Airport, and will get some GP goodness posted a little later...

Hey Dennis, if you come back through Detroit again, here's what you need to do:

Find the monorail.  Go to McDonalds.  Get some burgers, nuggets, whatever.  Go to monorail, ride back and forth while waiting for your flight.  A friend of mine did this and pretty much watched human interaction at its finest for three hours when our flight was delayed once.

Stop by the Flying Lab booth and say hi to the guy dressed as the British Naval officer. :)

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

I was wondering how long it would take you.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Have fun. Let's hope PAX won't be the disappointment that E3 was.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

I don't think anything could have been more of a disappointment than was E3 was this year.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

We love you enough that it's okay, haha.  I had to flush my computer and reinstall my OS.  So I am still in the process of reinstalling all of my software...  (FTP, Firefox, web/game dev stuff, games...)

My freakin ethernet wasn't recogized by my OS, so I had to go online with my girlfriend's computer and download the driver...  it still wont play sound yet...  This computer is nearing it's end as a primary machine after 5 years and minor upgrades (more RAM, but thats it)...  Pretty damn good for a PC if you ask me.  I have only seen Macs last longer...  One at my work is 8 years old, no upgrades...

Time to build a computer...  NewEgg, here I come!

Anyways, have fun man, let us know of your travels.  In a year or 2 I'll prolly see you there.

Matthew Wilsonthe issue is when is doesn't work it can screw over millions in new york city's case. more often than not it is better to let the free market run its course without market distortion.04/16/2014 - 9:36am
NeenekoTrue, and overdone stagnation is a problem. It is a tricky balance. It does not help that when it does work, no one notices. Most people here have benifited from rent controls and not even realized it.04/16/2014 - 9:23am

ZippyDSMleeEither way you get stagnation as people can not afford the prices they set.04/16/2014 - 8:47am
Neenekowell, specifically it helps people already living there and hurts people who want to live there instead. As for 'way more hurt', majorities generally need less legal protection. yes it hurt more people then it helped, it was written for a minority04/16/2014 - 8:30am

ConsterTo be fair, there's so little left of the middle class that those numbers are skewing.04/16/2014 - 7:42am
Matthew Wilsonyes it help a sub section of the poor, but hurt both the middle and upper class. in the end way more people were hurt than helped. also, it hurt most poor people as well.04/16/2014 - 12:13am

NeenekoSo "worked" vs "failed" really comes down to who you think is more important and deserving04/15/2014 - 7:04pm
NeenekoThough I am also not sure we can say NYC failed. Rent control helped the people it was intended for and is considered a failure by the people it was designed to protect them from.04/15/2014 - 7:04pm
NeenekoIf they change the rules, demand will plummet. Though yeah, rent control probably would not help much in the SF case. I doubt anything will.04/15/2014 - 1:35pm

Matthew Wilsonyup, but curent city rules do not allow for that.04/15/2014 - 11:00am
ZippyDSMleeIf SF dose not start building upwards then they will price people out of the aera.04/15/2014 - 10:59am
Matthew Wilsonthe issue rent control has it reduces supply, and in SF case they already has a supply problem. rent control ofen puts rent below cost, or below profit of selling it. rent control would not fix this issue.04/15/2014 - 10:56am
NeenekoRent control is useful in moderation, NYC took it way to far and tends to be held up as an example of them not working, but in most cases they are more subtle and positive.04/15/2014 - 10:24am

Matthew Wilsonwhat are you saying SF should do rent control, that has never worked every time it has been tried. the issue here is a self inflicted supply problem imposed by stupid laws.04/15/2014 - 8:52am
