How Uber’s Autonomous Cars Will Destroy 10 Million Jobs And Reshape The Economy by 2025 « CBS San Francisco
[The 2nd Industrial Revolution enabled by Moore's Law from 2000-2030/50: autonomous cars, software eats the world, marketplaces, share economy, automation, robotics, AI/augmented reality, local - just in time manufacturing via 3D printing, renewable energy and 100% recycling of everything.] The transition is already beginning to happen. Elon Musk, Tesla Motor’s CEO, says that their 2015 models will be able to self-drive 90 percent of the time.1 And the major automakers aren’t far behind – according to Bloomberg News, GM’s 2017 models will feature “technology that takes control of steering, acceleration and braking at highway speeds of 70 miles per hour or in stop-and-go congested traffic.”2 Both Google3 and Tesla4 predict that fully-autonomous cars – what Musk describes as “true autonomous driving where you could literally get in the car, go to sleep and wake up at your destination” – will be available to the public by 2020.

President Obama Is Waging a War on Hackers | WIRED
war on whistleblower and investigative journalism. // "In next week’s State of the Union address, President Obama will propose new laws against hacking that could make either retweeting or clicking on the above (fictional) link illegal. The new laws make it a felony to intentionally access unauthorized information even if it’s been posted to a public website. The new laws make it a felony to traffic in information like passwords, where “trafficking” includes posting a link. [...] But they are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem." // &! huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/20/obama-hackers_n_6511700.html &! entrepreneur.com/article/242099 &! america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2015/1/in-obamas-war-on-hackers-everyone-loses.html "Both steps would not only be ineffective at improving cybersecurity in any practical sense but also further empower the government to go after activists and journalists such as Barrett Brown,

The French government can now force ISPs to block websites without a court order | PandoDaily
Efforts to grant the French government the ability to control which websites are allowed inside the country accelerated after the shooting at Charlie Hebdo’s office on January 7. The government has also threatened to consider companies like Facebook and Google “accomplices” to hate-speech if they don’t remove extremist content from their properties. That’s the unfortunate irony of the Charlie Hebdo attack: an effort to silence a magazine which has since become an idol for free speech has led France and the United Kingdom to propose or introduce laws that limit speech through direct censorship and intimidation. [...] Internet content, France once again circumvents the judicial power, betraying the separation of powers in limiting what is the first freedom of all in a democracy — freedom of speech. // invites also abuse of the system. say one hacks ones business website, uploads illegal stuff, reports website, gets blocked 24hrs later, business has no website/business for 3 months.

In an attempt to increase its influence over the media, Facebook makes publishers an offer they should refuse | PandoDaily
That kind of wholesale transfer of content sends a cold, dark chill down the collective spine of publishers, both traditional and digital insurgents alike. If Facebook’s mobile app hosted publishers’ pages, the relationship with customers, most of the data about what they did and the reading experience would all belong to the platform. Media companies would essentially be serfs in a kingdom that Facebook owns. [...] & Facebook might be bad, but Google is even worse. [...] & Facebook as it exists now has a notable effect on the way news is discovered, read, and shared, but it pales in comparison to Google’s control over how so much information is found online.
