Wow, this poor guy. He was in part arrested because Google location data suggested he was at the scene of the murder after police requested a dragnet (geofencing) from Google about people who devices were located in the area at the time of the murder. However, this article shows how that data is not reliable. Even when the police were faced with a rock solid alibi for his whereabouts, they kept him in a high security jail for another 3 days! This episode cost him his job, his car and now he can't get work! ...Read More

"If we had a real Congress, there would be a congressional investigation into whatever lame, paper-thin legal rationalizations have been written by government lawyers to back up this murder. Instead, we are left with the nagging realization that Trump has just found a new loophole to circumvent the assassination ban."
This wet-noodle 'journalism' has to stop. This article presents the 'technosphere' as a non-aligned, neutral productive force which operates to some extent at the whim of consumers but with an irresistible internal logic to grow. This growth is achieved at the expense of the environment. ...Read More

“Most analyses of cyberwar approach the subject from conventional perspectives — international relations, political science, or military theory. But as cyberwar slips outside the bounds of declared war, theoretical approaches far beyond the realm of politics and war become directly relevant as different subjects and markets are militarized and attacked.”
"Not since the mid-1990s, when Microsoft dominated the personal computer industry with Windows, has a technology platform instilled such fear in competitors as Amazon is now doing with its cloud computing arm."
"Most of all, the emerging science of collapse suggests that civilization in its current form, premised on endless growth and massive inequalities, is unlikely to survive this century. It will either evolve into or be succeeded by a new configuration, perhaps an “ecological civilization”, premised on a fundamentally new relationship ...Read More
"Sarah Reeves sat on her couch in Eugene, Oregon, staring at her laptop screen in furious disbelief. She was reading the website of a government agency, where her mother appeared to have posted a comment weighing in on a bitter policy battle for control of the internet. Something was very For a start, Annie Reeves, who loved to lead children’s sing-alongs at the Alaska Zoo, had never followed wonky policy debates. She barely knew her way around the web, let alone held strident views on how it should be regulated — and, according to her daughter, she definitely didn’t post ...Read More
A hotter, more extreme climate can mean more profits in cooling homes, managing scarce water, building seawalls against rising water levels, and coaxing food crops to grow in drier, less fertile soil. Disgusting.
