    Absolutely. Right on the mark if you ask me. If the algorithms can be this off, then it makes sense to say that they shouldn't be trusted with the Ubuntu branding. Thats just common sense.
  14. Re: p0rnview - Software Centre NEEDS some form of governance

    It's pretty scary what machine learning based recommendation engines give you sometimes. It's like the "Tivo thinks I'm gay" issue applied to the whole web. Nowhere is this more awkward than when it...
