A better alternative to the "I, Robot" movie.
If the singularity is coming for us, then it won’t arrive with a violent robot uprising but with the confused and cautious first steps of a new kind of human consciousness. That’s how writers Sam...

The +Electronic Frontier Foundation​ turns 25 this year; I've followed them since I joined Google+ and I can vouch for the constant vigilance they exercise for the sake of internet freedom. I remember the widespread effort against SOPA and PIPA, and the 1-day internet blackout so many sites did to get the point across.

Sadly, all their work is really, really necessary.
Woven into the fabric of every element of our lives, the internet isn’t the most important fight we have, but it is the most foundational

When you open source, you let information flow. And when information flows freely, innovation benefits; it's only naturally-expected, because you are letting 'more people in' on something -- as experiences and interactions build up, a whole tidal wave soon follows.
It started out as a controversial idea inside...

While I can understand his point of view, I don't believe that people who use Facebook and Android "aren't dupes" -- there IS a sort of herd mentality at work here. Factoring in Facebook's constant misuse of users' personal data and its ever-changing privacy guidelines, as well as Google's simplification of app permission in its Play Store, and I can bet a lot of people are indeed being fooled to believe that giving up personal information without being fully-aware of the potential implications.

That said, it DOES make sense to give away personal information if the act helps you during everyday life. Big Data-crunching and machine-learning can contribute to considerable benefits for our society as well as routines.

So where is the middle ground? I don't have that answer, yet.

Previewing the new system for Google Contacts. Finally some fresh air in there! Just aesthetics changes so far, but glad someone else paid attention to that aspect of the Google products!

Keeping up-to-date contacts is downright mandatory these days.

THIS is what #3dprinting (AKA, lithography) can accomplish -- help out people, anywhere and everywhere.

This is #Science doing what it does best, folks. Enabling people to be awesome.
Three-dimensional printers create inexpensive, striking prosthetics that hint at comic-book superpowers for children who are missing fingers.

I recall the philosophy underneath much #FightClub as I read this, particularly in the last paragraphs ... "the power of brand", indeed.

Lithography. 3D printing. This was already being discussed theoretically among the circles that I was a part of, back in 1992.

Now? Now, it's both reality and a buzzword.

I feel vindicated. Thank you, Multiverse, for proving me just how awesome I am.
I believe, along with a growing number of leaders around the world, that 3D printing will change the way things are produced more in this century than the industrial revolution did over the last 300 years. Consider these two recent events: A little over a year ago, a young Indonesian man named [...]

The future is transmogrifying into the present. Finally! Now when can I get my MMI?

"For the data giants, the Internet isn't an abstraction where all are treated fairly. (...) It's a commercial battleground where a few companies dominate the field."

Well, if someone wanted to know what #BladeRunner and #Shadowrun would be like with übiquitous surveillance and #MegaCorps ... you might just be experiencing it. In blissful ignorance, perhaps, but nonetheless experiencing it.
Tech companies have amassed frightening economic power -- and we handed over our data to make it possible

"Is ad blocking theft?"

No, it is a response the bloated web and over-the-top marketing. Some pages will contain more ads than information, while others will contain malware injections within their ad frames.

Didn't know about AdBlock plus doing that ransom thing, though...
Show of hands — who uses Adblock Plus or uBlock? Don’t lie.

The future does not belong to those who wait.
Introduction
Put me in circles ...
  • ... that talk about rugby.
  • ... that talk about rock climbing.
  • ... that talk about bodybuilding.
  • ... that talk about physical activities and general fitness.
  • ... that talk about really cool gadgets and technologies.
  • ... that talk about video games.
  • ... that talk about RPGs.
Talk to me ...
  • ... about ideas, creativity and the stuff of innovation.
  • ... about fun, exciting projects, both personal and professional ones.
  • ... about your perspective on the world, but only if you have an open mind yourself.
I might share with the world at large whenever I feel like it, but chances are good that if you don't apply in any of the stuff I've written above, you won't hear at all from me. I don't talk to digital ghosts.

On weekend nights, the place gets really busy so you might wait a long time before getting a table. The size of the Waiters' staff seemed reasonable but they move at a hectic pace so placing an order or closing a bill might take some time. But these shouldn't be a problem if you're just going out with friends for fun. One major problem, however, is the food. It's cooked with too much oil.

[PT-BR] Solicitei alguns trabalhos com essa empresa em 2012 e 2013. Me atenderam prontamente e de maneira bem eficiente. A qualidade de impressão ficou muito boa e tenho recomendado à amigos publicitários. [EN-US] Have been doing business with them since 2012.
