If the people at the MRMW conference believe that using robots to spy on us as we shop is such a good idea, why aren’t they making information about this session open to the public in general? […]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

In the 20th century, America discovered how to harness the power of fossil fuels. It was a powerful source of energy – for its time. That was generations ago, however, and America’s energy needs have changed.
Coal, methane, and crude oil don’t meet our century’s need for sustainable, clean, advanced sources of energy. Yet, the […]
Fulfilling my proper role as a father in fattening my children up with electronic gaming that would make Tipper Gore blanch, this afternoon I purchased a game through Origin. After shoveling $4,932,894.32(9/10 – damn the government taxes) down the gaping maw of the Origin shopping cart, I received an e-mail informing me blandly that all […]
In about an hour and a half from now, NASA will send an unmanned version of its new Orion spaceship up into orbit, riding on the back of a Delta IV Heavy rocket. It’s very retro-looking, without any fins or wings at all. The full name of the spaceship is rather institutional: Orion Multi-Purpose Crew […]
