U.S. Defense Money Going into Hackerspaces

Given the troubled history of hacker/government relations in the past, I understand why folks might be concerned about this. However, fostering tech talent in the coming generation is now a national priority, and traditional schools aren't necessarily the best way of going about it.

What do you think of this?

DYK?  It's Banned Books Week:  Sep 30−Oct 6, 2012

"Catch-22. A Farewell to Arms. Of Mice and Men. Hailed as literary classics, it's hard to believe that there are hundreds of attempts each year to remove these and other great books from schools and libraries. In fact, according to the American Library Association, 42 of 100 books recognized by the Radcliffe Publishing Course as the best novels of the 20th century have been challenged or banned." See list: http://bit.ly/Whpczf

Banning books is not only bad for readers and society at large but it also affects writers. Here is a great quote by Salman Rushdie regarding censorship:

"The creative act requires not only freedom but also this assumption of freedom. If the creative artist worries if he will still be free tomorrow, then he will not be free today" -- Salman Rushdie

My Interview with F.A.Z - Autonomous Combat Drones & Political Power

The German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, interviewed me earlier this month about lethal autonomy and it's potential to change the distribution of political power in democratic societies. The English translation just appeared on their site.

For German readers, see link to print edition (22.09.2012): http://bit.ly/Te7gb2

Will Your Game World Exploits Disqualify You For Public Office?

It might sound like a hypothetical question, but it's unfolding right now in Maine. The Republican Party there has discovered that a Democratic candidate for state senate in Maine's 25th district leads a "double-life" in the online game, World of Warcraft, as an Orc Rogue. Her 'back-stabbing' proclivities are being called into question...seriously.

Personally, all I can say is: I hope what happens in Skyrim stays in Skyrim.
