“Star Wars” despots vs. “Star Trek” populists - Salon.com
"Just what bill of goods are we being sold, between the frames?

* Elites have an inherent right to arbitrary rule; common citizens needn’t be consulted. They may only choose which elite to follow.

* True leaders are born. It’s genetic. The right to rule is inherited.

* Justified human emotions can turn a good person evil."

An Artist is Making a Map of Manhattan Using Only Handwritten Directions From Strangers | Colossal
"Dressed as a tourist in a souvenir baseball cap and carrying a Century 21 shopping bag, the artist hits the streets around Manhattan and approaches random pedestrians to inquire about directions through the current part of the map he’s working on."

One of the most common scenarios when asking strangers for directions is their habit of pulling out a smart phone to start typing in an address, after which he insists on leaving with a drawn map on whatever written surface is available: torn sheets of notebook paper, napkins, or even paper plates. Aozaki tells Spoon & Tamago that his goal is not to make a complete map, but to instead document his daily routine and his myriad interactions with people, sort of like a mapped diary. (via Spoon & Tamago)

Google's Driverless Cars Won't Transform Our Daily Commute. They'll Make Us Even More Miserable on the Road.
"But Google, to use a technology cliché, has chosen the wrong platform. If the company wants to revolutionize mobility, it shouldn't waste its time with cars. They're intractably inefficient uses of energy and space, and building our communities around them has failed."
