Who cares about the past...
 
John Oliver: "There was only one time in American history when the fear of refugees wiping everyone out did actually come true..."“...and we’ll be celebrating it on Thursday.”

That's maybe the best line, but there's lots of substance here too. Well worth watching.
John Oliver has the perfect (or really, perfectly terrible) response when your elderly relatives start sniping at you during Thanksgiving dinner. "When your grandmother is complaining about your new piercing, saying your generation is terrible, simply reply, 'Okay, Nana, but at least we didn't send Jews back to Europe in 1939.' Then break off a turkey leg, drop it like a microphone, and you've just won the dinner." Oliver is talking specifically ...

Citizenfour today in TV. Must watch...
 ·  Translate
Als Edward Snowden seine erste verschlüsselte E-Mail unter dem Namen "Citizenfour" im Januar 2013 an Laura Poitras schickt, arbeitet die Regisseurin bereits an einem Film über die Praxis der Massenüberwachung, dem dritten Teil ihrer Trilogie über die USA nach 9/11. Snowden hatte Poitras nicht zuletzt deshalb als Kontaktperson gewählt, weil sie seit Jahren selbst eine Zielperson der Geheimdienste war, die bei der Einreise oder Ausreise in den USA ...

Do you know how many dependency layers are in your product?
 
Some thoughts about what's going to be needed for Software Supply Chains to be effective in the future.  We're going to have to up our game as an ecosystem to permit the automation of license compliance and security information, to get to the level of tracking that the manufacturing industry uses today.   Does anyone know of other starting points that are being effectively used in practice that should be included?

Sharing accurate licensing and security information through the software supply chain needs to be the goal. Ensuring that the information can be automatically collected and accurate is necessary to keep up with the rate of change in software development.

> The Samsung SGR-1 patrols the border between North and South Korea, called the Demilitarized Zone. South Korea installed the stationary robots, developed by Samsung Techwin and Korea University, according to NBC News.

Roff said the SGR-1 was initially built with the capability to detect, target, shoot intruders from two miles away.

"In that sense, it's a really sophisticated landmine, it can sense a certain thing and can automatically fire," she said.

But Peter Asaro, the co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, told NBC News that South Korea received "a lot of bad press about having autonomous killer robots on their border."

Now the SGR-1 can now only detect and target but requires a human operator to approve the kill shot.
