IFTF Second Curve Internet Speaker Series with Richard Whitt—November 11, 2015

Fighting for the Deep Edge: Protecting the Future of Internet Architecture
http://www.iftf.org/deepedge

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedies."
             —Groucho Marx

All technology is imbued with values—deliberately-engineered qualities that mirror certain aspects of human behavior. And the Internet is no exception.

Join us November 11 as Richard Whitt discusses the code, people, and processes of the value-laden Internet, with an eye towards describing the recent shift in empowerment from the “core” of the network to users operating at its “deep edges.” Using the 2011-’12 SOPA/PIPA copyright battle in Congress as the backdrop, Rick will then outline the challenge facing the tech industry as it struggles to explain itself to government policymakers, both in Washington and elsewhere. How can we protect the key values of the Internet—including its open, interconnected, end-to-end design—when would-be regulators fail to appreciate or even understand them?

an nice clear update on some of the new science of the human microbiome: by Noubar Afeyan, World Economic forum blog 3/14/14

The gut bacteria that can restore your health
http://forumblog.org/2014/03/gut-bacteria-health-microbiome/?sf2152222=1


[ . . . ]

"Some people suggest there are at least 10 times more genes in the microbiome than in the human genome. My guess is that the resulting difference is much larger than 10 times, because the diversity in function is not a linear product of the number of genes; it is the product of the interaction of genes. With three genes, you could see all sorts of interactions. If you have 3,000, or 30,000, the potential interactions grow exponentially. It is clear that the metabolic potential – by which I mean the ability to synthesize chemicals in the gut, or degrade chemicals – is really vast, and differs between individuals. The population of genes cohabiting with us is huge, dynamic and diverse."

some fun weekend reading: DoE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) Collections: High-Performance Computing http://www.osti.gov/home/osti-collections-high-performance-computing

IMHO (In my humble opinion)  Google needs to re-brand Glass , The name is permanently ruined by clueless snarky use of the gl***hole meme.The situation is not unlike the failed Chevy Nova brand fiasco in Mexico ( in spanish  "No va" means doesn't go) Also google might consider introducing another headset with no camera to exercise the heads-up display and speech capabilities independent of people's paranoia about wearable cameras.
