A little more I wrote on job disruption from information technology:
Are you worried about your job disappearing? Should you be? Advanced technologies are steadily arriving on the market but many - especially in Information Technology - are creating real job

I'll be starting in Fall 2016 too and just wanted to pop up and say hi. I've been lurking on this excellent forum, learning from these many useful posts about how to best prep for starting classes. One of the reasons I was so excited to apply to OMSCS was the strong community; I think OMSCS is breaking ground at graduate professional education and the motivated and self-organizing students are surpassing all expectations, so I'm excited to be here!

It was exciting to see progress on this innovative project, engineered by Dialexa engineer Romeo España, who I often saw in the evenings at Dallas Makerspace working on his drones while I worked on my bio projects. It's great to see innovation move from the labs towards commercial use!
On Thursday, July 21st UberEATS and Dialexa hosted an exclusive event for 350 special guests to experience the potential applications of drone technology.

I have a new review of Rushkoff's new book up on Singularity Weblog. Job disruption via AI, basic minimum income, organization of the money system and corporate charters, decentralized solutions from local currencies to the blockchain - all kinds of good stuff. Please check it out and let me know what you think :) 
Douglas Rushkoff's “Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus” digs deep into the money system and corporate charters to get to the root of inequality.

Got a new article on Singularity WebLog about AI, cognitive competition, and the Go match
Is DeepMind’s AlphaGo victory another case of a faster purpose-built machine, or are we approaching a fundamental crisis of “cognitive competition?”
