jfruhlinger writes: "Like most people in America — and like most government workers in particular — federal IT staffers are wondering how the recent budget deal will affect them. It seems that they won't suffer much, for two reasons: there was already a major tech consolidation effort underway, and everyone involved is hoping that IT initiatives will result in cost-savings in other areas of government operations. In particular, federal moves to the cloud — which can yield considerable savings, despite a need for up-front investment that deters some shops — will continue."
Thus mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know
what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
