With a technological leap as ambitious, as sprawling and as hyped as the Internet of Things, it can be difficult to get a bead on just what it is — and to imagine how it's going to affect you, if you're not the type of person to rush out and buy a smart thermostat and a networked toothbrush.<br />

The image that most people have of CERN is of its enormous accelerators and their capacity to accelerate particles to extremely high energies. But thanks to some cutting-edge studies on beam dynamics and radiofrequency technology, along with innovative construction techniques, teams at CERN have now created the first module of a brand-new accelerator, which will be just 2 [...]

I left an extensive comment on this -- Yann responded to Yuergen's critique of the Nature article. The bigger problem is that we have several of the leading AI lab directors also holding the lab director position in large commercial monopolies, which should have caused an uproar. That it didn't says something about just how much deterioration has occurred in ethics and morality in our society, particularly at the institutional level. It should be completely disallowed by the governance committees of both parties and rejected by the participants themselves. It wasn't.

Nice article. Quote from the blogger is almost verbatim to my own on the problems with the Internet and web design. Distributed computing, digital currency and novel multiple security methods are unquestionably part of the solution. However, I'm not personally enthusiastic about bitcoin vendors due to macro economic problems. It's one thing to secure possessions; quite another to design a dynamic network economy. Both must be accomplished or all will have failed eventually. 
Forget the currency; it’s the protocol behind it that matters. It will mutate and take over everything we do (or could one day do) on the Web. You’ve been warned

Nice review all on one page
It would be interesting if we could look into a crystal ball and predict the future of Bitcoin, blockchains, cryptocurrency, decentralized applications and cryptography-based protocols and platforms. All of this activity is under what I like to call “Crypto-Tech”, as a parallel to Info-Tech ...
