Block Chain + Music = Music Business 3.0 (w/out music business 2.0)

JCR Licklikder and Doug Engelbart would be thrilled.
Grammy winner and musical innovator, Imogen Heap is fed up with hearing artists, herself included, complain about the current state of the music industry. Here she discusses Mycelia, her approach for a new industry that includes Blockchain.

The challenge is not the extrapolated nightmare of self-control led weapons systems, but rather the introduction of automated killing machines at the first instance. It appears that ice has been broken. . .
 
5 weapons that don't need a human to pull the trigger: landmines, the Phalanx System, a large machine gun on US naval ships that destroys incoming missiles, the Samsung SGR-A1, an automated security guard system at the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea, Iron Dome, Israel's rocket defense system, Taranis, a British drone that can find enemies but currently must be triggered by a human to fire, and the Northrop Grumman X-47B, a drone that can perform entire missions when given a target, including autonomously fueling itself in mid-air and landing.
How close are we to fully automated weaponry? Are there actual killer robots out there right now, ready to fight wars? Yes and no.

This is how it is going to happen. Grassroots, bottom-up, self help. Damn straight it's a threat to the established order.
 
A Russian farmer ended up in court in July 2015 after he began printing an alternative local currency for his village to make the exchange of goods and labour easier in a village where residents can only get hard cash several times a year. But local prosecutors, the tax inspectorate and the Russian Central Bank have taken him to court claiming that he has violated the constitution, several tax and civic legal codes, and a host of federal laws.

+Rex Orwell​ suspect you are right, but as +Peter Feltham​ indicates with his examples, the truth is these emergences are not dependent upon nor driven by whether they are covered in the press or not. The beauty is they are driven by and ultimately sustained by the end user/community that adopts the solution based on its resonance with their needs and requirements. And agreed that virtualization and block chain tech behind crypto currencies seals the deal +Rick Heil​.

Thanks to +Lukasz Stafiniak for the find and +Eray Özkural for the share.

A truly rich feast of content and context regarding the history of scientific thought and development; and perhaps more importantly, the ultimate intrinsic paradox of both its significance and purposelessness in the cosmic sense.

A wonderful wander. . . . .

This is our species' truth. We are our results. Regardless of what we say or do, the fact of the matter is that aid for 78.9 million people that is required is as of this moment only 27% funded. The fact of the matter is that unless the global population becomes a global community working non-competitively in service to all on a sustainable basis, we will face a global extinction in which non one will survive.

That means our approach and orientation has to be that no one is left behind, no one is left out, no one is sacrificed, no one is neglected, no one is dispensable, no one is left off the list. This requires the biggest and richest and most powerful and most productive and most successful organizations and companies and individuals and producers decide to change their perspectives and priorities and beliefs and entitlements and motivations and drivers and rationalizations that have produced the above situation; and step up and assume responsibility and stewardship for correcting it.

If they do not, then shame on us all, and we get what we deserve.

An interesting piece, this. In reverting back to an enterprise solution, with integration as a curricular core driver in service to the institutional provider of the program, the transitional costs are clear as pointed out in the piece. Seems the question is whether the integrative improvement of the enterprise platform is additive to an equivalency of curricular delivery to the student, or at the expense of the latter. If additive, then it may be the harbinger of turning tides for Khan Academy as an institutional choice for delivery of Developmental Math and other subject matter domains.

+Steve Literati I think you hit the nail on the head, but with far greater precision than I. The question for me was whether making it "better" for the provider, from an institutional standpoint (which seems to me perhaps operationally/administratively, reading between the lines) may or may not be at the expense of the consumer or student. I am not sure regarding current adaptive integration vis a vis Kahn Academy. I know early days it was not; but, there has been much development since I last dabbled.

To those who would champion Edward Snowden as a champion of truth and hero of transparency in government, it is always a good idea to vet these things with an unfiltered eye and curious mind, to ferret out the facts from the fiction. It appears, as the facts begin to surface from the rhetoric that he might well have been a Russian intelligence operative aimed at US Intelligence, serving as propaganda generator for and on behalf of Maestro Putin, the mother of all spooks and current dictator of the former Soviet Union.

This does not negate the importance of the light shone on un-Constitutional surveillance and violation of laws by our security agencies, nor does it speak to the issue of individual privacy versus collective safety and security. However, it does speak to whether Snowden, as a persona who, by his actions materially embarrassed and damaged US intelligence assets and efforts, deserves to be hailed as a hero of truth and honesty in government, or as a instrument of foreign governments acting in service to damaging US interests.

Methinks the scales are slowly and inexorably tilting toward the latter; and frankly, I cannot say I would be inclined to welcome him back on any basis.

Even on a national level. American presidents are presented by media as being at odds with Russian presidents, but it's not too difficult to find them in their matching purple robes and regalia, which should reveal to the average person that the idea of true animosity is theatre.

American Mobile Glass is the best, hands down. I called the nationally know brand I shall leave nameless. It was on a weekend, and I left a message not returned until two days later, and was quoted a price a third again higher that American Mobile Glass. I got another quote at the same inflated price, and my wife got a quote from the dealer that was literally 4 X the quote of AMG. The installation too less than the estimate, the installer came to me, and the quality of the work and cleanliness of the job left no evidence of what had been done. Also, I had had a windshield replaced by another shop two years before on an identical vehicle, and the quality of the glass was horrible, out of the box compared to the glass installed. There were small imperfections visible within 24 hours on the first sunny day. The American Mobile Glass was perfect, pristine, and completely free of defect. Great great great!

We are big fans. Pizza is great as are the subs. We have ordered catering size orders of their sausage and peppers - I think it is the best in Bergen County, and had it devoured in record time by a half dozen football players. The baked zitti is also great. From a price and value standpoint, they have always provided great value and their pizza lunch specials during the week are the cheapest going. All in all just great. Owners are always friendly and personable.
