This could be a concern for autonomous vehicles. Should an autonomous car sacrifice its driver if it would save more lives? Should autonomous vehicles note the number of passengers? Or negotiate with the other autonomous car as to how to minimize total lives lost? Should children be valued more highly? Algorithms will eventually encode whatever moral consensus we arrive at.
Quote: If a crash is unavoidable, should an autonomous car choose who it slams into?
h/t to who suggested on his TWiG podcast a simple precaution that Chrome/Chrome OS users can take to guard against "Heartbleed" data theft. Go into your Settings, and under "HTTTS/SSL" click on the "Check for server certificate revocation" box. This will kick out a warning to you if you're accessing a Web server whose SSL certificate is no longer valid - meaning that it may have been compromised by the Heartbleed exploit. Takes but a moment, well worth it.

I started out as an SEO guy, morphed into a PPC guy. I spend a lot of time learning to master the new marketing realities online. Current industry heroes Avinash Kaushkik, Perry Marshall, Brian Eisenberg and Danny Sullivan. There is no such thing as a stupid question. I tend to respect people who say they “don’t know, who have the humility to continue learning from those around them. I don’t agree with everyone, I can’t please everybody. And sometimes you may hear things you don’t like. I reserve the right to ignore you if you’re really rude, feel free to share what you feel is important.
