"A safer road is one that talks. Vehicles that communicate with each other, as well as with the road infrastructure, transport agencies and others, can warn drivers of upcoming hazards and ultimately prevent accidents and keep traffic flowing more smoothly."
"Finland saw the potential and, following the European Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) directive, is the first to implement a pilot scheme that seeks to enable vehicles to communicate safety hazards such as black ice or animals on the road."
"The BBC’s success infuriates its enemies because it defies Hayekian laws of gravity; the market ought to offer better value but it doesn’t."
"Under this interpretation, [right to concealed carry] laws have no effect on mass public shootings at all."
And even if this was the case it would do nothing against suicide bombers, concealed bombs of various types or snipers (one does not conduct counter-sniper operations with a handgun [or alone, better have your trained spotter buddy with you at all times too]). So maybe we do not want to draft everyone into the citizens militia and spend tons and tons of money in training and arming them.
So yeah, this goes heavily into the territory that Bruce Schneier calls movie-plot threats: """A movie-plot threat is a scary-threat story that would make a great movie, but is much too specific to build security policies around."""
He holds an annual contest of movie-plot threats in his blog, both entertaining and educational. https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2015/05/eighth_movie-pl.html
Actually anyone interested in any sort of security (his speciality being infosec but the blog has regular commenters that know way too much about physical security at scary institutions) should follow the blog.
One of the best features is the way it selects algorithms and crypto options. Instead of requiring every admin to provide and update easy-to-read cipher configs like the one below, which is actually the recommended "intermediate" string for server configurations right now (are you sure? or did I include something bogus?), it simply takes a "default" argument to use the latest recommended one in the library, or a date string if you want to stick to an older set for backwards compatibility.
Yes please. Crypto software configuration right now is ridiculous, changes like these are sorely needed.
It's a place where gays, lesbians, bisexuals, pansexuals, straights, asexuals, transgenders, agenders, non-binaries, polyamorists, drag queens, bears, gods of leather, furries, and so on can all be seen.
It's a place where the political parties from different sides of the spectrum walk together, the communists in the same march as the right-wing parties.
It's a place where liberal members of the church and scouts join the parade, and the city library distributes free condoms.
It's a place where sexuality (or lack of) is not something to be ashamed of, but a valid way to express yourself with.
It's a place where a woman can spontaneously take off her shirt and bra and write "the breast liberation front" on her boobs and then be joined by others doing the same thing.
It's a family event where people bring their children and babies for the picnic afterwards.
It's just damn neat.
The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.
It is so ordered."
