A video showing a car attempting to park but actually plowing into journalists might have resulted from the Volvo’s owner not paying an extra fee to have the car avoid pedestrians.

I hope you are correct.The world is going crazy, to be honest I am fearful of what they are saying could happen once they fire that baby up in September. It is important to know what could go wrong.I would Assume all precautions and possibilities of potential disasters have been addresed and tested with a plan to close it should things go wrong.

Time for Google to make a Complete Switch to DART
Many are uneasy about a court ruling that said Oracle can sue Google over copyrighted API's. Now, the White House has just sided with Oracle.

Forbes Now: "Our Kids Will Not Believe Humans Ever Drove Cars" - The Real Question About Driverless Autos. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwybv89iE
Do you remember a time before the internet, and a time before television? Now answer the same question for your parents. And do it again for your children.

Ranger. Scouting the Adjacent Possible.
Introduction
Child of God. Husband. Father. Son. Brother. American. Constitutional Conservative. Scientist. Martial Artist. Professor. Programmer. Musician. Gamer. Ubergeek. Writer. Instrument Designer. Systems Thinker. Roboticist. Algorithm Developer. Explorer. Comedian. Fanboy. Conversationalist. Philosopher. Trekkie. Jedi. Serial Innovator. ENTP. Left-handed. Right-Sided. Blissfully Happy. Defender of Freedom. Unshakably Loyal. Evangelist. Ranger.

Scouting the Adjacent Possible.

I Love Conversation. Especially conversation with folks who have a different worldview than my own. I am constantly learning and I earn a handsome living sharing that knowledge with others. I have my own life experience and since you are not me, I can guarantee that your life experience is different from mine.

I Celebrate Diversity. Especially Diversity of Opinion. What I don't love are folks who have a different perspective from mine who assume that I am being disingenuous by even suggesting their perspective can be questioned. Dogma I can look up on Google. What I seek is to learn how and why people see the world from different perspectives. I see the world through Brown Eyes. I won't be able to change my perspective to that of a Blue-eyed person, but it does not mean that I am filled with venomous hatred for asking folks to share their perspective with me.

I am a Troll. A person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[Wikipedia] I often have this epithet hurled at me when folks can't provide a reasoned answer to a straightforward question. When folks label me a "Troll", I know that I have stepped into dogma that cannot be defended. By the time you have blocked me, I have already moved on in search of polite debate.
