Take that, multiverse:

"Those who worry that an exponential increase in the capacity of computers could bring about a qualitative transition in their behavior that trumps what took vast numbers of cells four billion years to develop, are making a mistake analogous to cosmologists who posit that our universe is one of a vast number of copies. If we can’t explain why our universe has the laws or initial conditions it does, we can invent a story in which a universe like ours arises randomly in a vast enough collection. Similarly, if we can’t yet understand how natural intelligence is produced by a human brain, take the short cut of imagining that the mechanisms which must somehow be present in neuronal circuitry will arise by chance in a large enough network of computers." - Lee Smolin @ http://edge.org/conversation/the-myth-of-ai
The idea that computers are people has a long and storied history. It goes back to the very origins of computers, and even from before. There's always been a question about whether a program is something alive or not since it intrinsically has some kind of autonomy at the very least, ...

Andrew Hill: "Two predictions: How Google Works by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg, out this week, will be a bestseller; How Google Works will be rapidly forgotten. In fact, its publication may turn out to mark the peak of popular excitement about, interest in, and support for, almost everything Google touches."

"Google is a remarkable company, doing some remarkable things, but readers will have to wait for another writer – almost certainly not a serving executive – to reveal the conjuror’s best tricks."

Kan detta vara en 20 årgammal tweet? Hur early kan en earlyadapter egentligen vara?

Ankdammen United.

”En avgrundsdjup klyfta öppnar sig i samhället som gäller såväl ekonomi, utbildningsnivå, kultur, kontaktnät, ja, allt." skriver Patrik Engellau, ordförande i Den nya välfärden, i sin nyutkomna bok Min oro.

Jacob Palmstierna hyllas samtidigt med en antologi utgiven på Ekerlids förlag. Totalt 17 personer medverkar med egna texter i boken med titeln Till minne av Jacob Palmstierna. Alla skriver med utgångspunkt från temat ”den samhällsekonomiska, politiska och nutidshistoriska miljö Jacob Palmstierna levde och verkade i och hur han hanterade den”.

Redaktör är Carl Uggla, som 2006 skrev den uppmärksammade biografin Staffan Burenstam Linder: den visionära handlingsmänniskan. Bland de medverkande märks bland andra Rune Andersson, Mariana Burenstam Linder, Hans Dalborg, Ulf Dinkelspiel, Gustaf Douglas, Hans Rausing, Björn Wahlroos och Marcus Wallenberg.

Story
Introduction

Född på en söndag, sommaren '68. Studerat vågor sedan 1988. Har med pennan slagits för bl.a. ip och wi-fi innan de blev vardagsmat. Anställd som framtidsforskare av AT&T Labs Research i New Jersey 1996-1999. Efter några års frilansflackande runt om i världen, och en skotsk utbildning till trädgårdsmästare, skriver jag nu om (Selma Lagerlöf och) valfränderna Karl Popper, Fritz Hayek, och Ernst Gombrich. Drömmer om gammaldags svensk välfärd och friska rum att vinterodla i. Medborgarskap? Ja tack.
