Q: So, Andy, who owns the copyright to DeepDream images?

A: Uh. That's a good question. I have no idea.

Q: So, why are you posting about it? 

A: Because my law school mentor, +Annemarie Bridy, does have some idea. 

Q: And what's the answer, according to her?

A: Basically, "no one does," because AIs don't have legal personhood. But apart from that, the answer is surprisingly complex, and touches on US case law, French surrealists, 'pataphysics, and computer science. Worth reading if you have the time and the background.

A handy browser plugin to convert every instance of the words "the cloud" with "my butt".

This application is hosted in my butt. My butt is scaleable. My butt has exactly the capacity you need, when you need it. My butt has no downtime. My butt allows you to control your IT costs while still maximizing delivery. Our consulting services will allow your  organization to unlock the power of my butt.

cloud-to-butt - Chrome extension that replaces occurrences of 'the cloud' with 'my butt'

Assange on Google. 
In “The New Digital Age,” two Google leaders have written a manifesto for technocratic imperialism.

Brace yourselves, what follows is an amazingly long blog post about Star Wars. I've already discussed how I'm not a huge fan of the various modifications

I think his arguments against I in general are pretty strong.
