The automotive future
[Announcement video]
The Tesla Model S now has autopilot! It will keep lanes avoid obstacles and keep distance from vehicles and pedestrians, etc. You'll be able to have the car drive 90% of the time.

On private property you can summon the car from the app, or...

If you have your calendar turned on, it will meet you there. If you're getting ready to go to work or something and it knows you're going to need to leave half an hour before work, you can say okay, I'd like it to just come out and have the airconditioning done. Your music is playing and everything's just ready to go. It will just come and be there.

The hardware for this is already in the Tesla Model S' coming from the assembly line right for a few weeks.

The trouble with trolls (and how to beat them)

Twitter exploded in activity after the tragic suicide of actor and comedian Robin Williams. http://goo.gl/q5fQbd

The vast majority of the commentary was in the form of loving tributes and remembrances of a widely beloved entertainer.

But two days later, William's daughter Zelda said this on Twitter: "I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye."

Zelda Williams was driven off of Twitter by a troll or trolls using the names PimpStory and MrGoosebuster. The accounts sent her messages and pictures that are too horrible to relate here. She tweeted to her followers: "Please report @PimpStory @MrGoosebuster. I'm shaking. I can't. Please."

This event is the trolling crisis in a nutshell. A vulnerable person. A sociopath or two on social media tormenting that person without consequence, totally beyond the reach of everyone (in fact, the pain caused and the attention grabbed rewarded them). Even millions of well-wishers and supporters can't overcome the pain caused by the heartless trolling of a tiny number of people.

The Telegraph newspaper this week published an article with a headline that proclaimed, "Online Trolls Are Forcing Women "Offline."

Anyone can be hurt by trolls. But some people are especially targeted -- women, youth, members of LGTB community, minorities and those suffering from personal crises.

Trolls silence, shame, harass, horrify and stress people, sometimes to a life-threatening degree.

Can anything be done about it?

The answer is yes. Here's how:

From the latest episode of This Week in Tech:

Google Ventures partner Kevin Rose's San Francisco home was visited by anti-tech protesters.  They held up banners calling him a "parasite" and distributed leaflets with the same message.
