Are you temporarily embarrassed? You may not realise it, but you could be a temporarily embarrassed millionaire. Do you plan to someday in the future have more money? Are you concerned that your taxes are too high, because someday you might pay too much tax. Do you ride the bus only because this ...

With the world population projected to soar past the 11 billion mark by 2100, we’re going to need to find some creative new ways of putting food on the table. The latest science-powered plan to feed the world? Hacking photosynthesis.

"It would have been crazy to say just a few years ago. But today, Google produces better-designed software than any other tech behemoth. If you don't believe that, then set down your Apple-flavored Kool-Aid. Take a cleansing breath, open your mind, and compare Android and iOS."
Google's transformation into a company that creates beautiful software is the story of how tech itself has evolved in the mobile era.

"The scientific consensus for the safety of GMOs is overwhelming. A recent Pew poll found that 88 percent of U.S. scientists think GMO technology is harmless. By contrast, only 33 percent of civilians agreed. A recent 7-1 U.S. Supreme Court decision concurred that genetically modified alfalfa is safe. The USDA, after arduous review, has allowed genetically modified sugar beets. Several independent studies so far have tested the effects of varieties of genetically modified crops on animals. In 2012, a meta-analysis of 12 long-term studies and 12 multigenerational studies was published in Food and Chemical Toxicology; it concluded “that GM plants are nutritionally equivalent to their non-GM counterparts and can be safely used in food and feed.” And according to the independent organization Biofortified, more than a hundred such studies have been performed, with no harmful results found."
The gene-editing CRISPR technology will create crops that can feed us all.

"The thing is, Google knew something we didn't. It knew that Apple's taste was a temporary advantage. It knew that designing a host of functional, universally integrated services was harder than designing pixels. And in the protracted thermonuclear war between Apple and Google, which first started when the search giant launched Android in 2008, Google knew that ultimately, it would be AI, not UI, that would win the war."

"Just as our roads a decade from now will be full of machine drivers instead of human drivers, a 21st century economy shall be driven by human consumers, not human workers, and these consumers must be freely given their purchasing power. If we refuse, if we don’t provide ourselves a universal and unconditional basic income soon, the future is going to hit us like a truck — a truck driven solely by ourselves.

To allow this to happen would be truly foolish, for what is the entire purpose of technology but to free us to pursue all we wish to pursue? Fearing the loss of jobs shouldn’t be a fear at all. It should be welcomed. It should be freeing.

No one should be asking what we’re going to do if computers take our jobs.

We should all be asking what we get to do once freed from them."
The imminent need for basic income in recognition of our machine-driven future

"It shouldn't, of course, take a New York Times columnist to tell us that Apple product rollouts are not the second coming. And social networks and mobile advertising can’t possibly promise a meaningfully better future when we're staring down global warming and a widening wealth gap. But while the malaise we detect is real, it’s one of complacent consumerism, not technology. If we hope to save ourselves from disaster, technology—real technology—remains our only hope. We shouldn't roll our eyes at it, as Krugman does. We should give it some credit."
We’re living in a technology malaise. Our News Feeds and Twitter streams barrage us with banality: The Apple Watch ain’t all that, the Internet is full of dimwitted trolls, and the most pressing issue of the day is whether it’s moral to keep watching Game of Thrones. So I am...
