Our world is being transformed by cheap and powerful technology faster than we think. Here's my story on the front page of today's New York Times about Texas high school football and the world of cheap video. Please read, comment & share.
Several websites and apps are transforming the way that players and coaches practice, scout other teams and analyze their own performance.

How figuring out the world's financial assets is like figuring out its terror networks.
Companies like Addepar are using data-filtering techniques honed at spy agencies to help track and value clients’ diverse holdings.

Soon enough, we'll map all our interior spaces, possible crowdsource them. Want that? 
It turns out every building has its own magnetic “fingerprint,” and you can figure out what it looks like with the compass of an iPhone. Merge that information with public maps, and we may see a movement to make all our spaces as public as roads. Think Yelp reviews of your couch.

Cities are our paradise of self-reinvention, but aggregating small amounts of public data is going to change that. How the evanescent things will take lasting life, and what that means for our moral selves.
At some point very soon, a large amount of public information, like a car license plate, will be part of a mosaic portraying personal lives. At that point, believers in technology say, we’ll build a better society by eliminating deceit. Are we moral, though, if we don’t wrestle with problems?

We love mobility, and apps drive us nuts. Are we right, or like petulant kids? A new report shows both can be true.
People from Earth’s most remote corners have something in common: They all download apps, interacting with the mobile Internet billions of times a day, and they all feel frustration at slow loads and app crashes. A new report shows how much work it is, getting us to this level of frustration.

"Extreme optimism or extreme pessimism takes you to the same point." Also, why our society is screwed, and the downside of being a billionaire.
The PayPal co-founder turned venture capitalist has a new book coming it. And with it, one of Silicon Valley’s most outspoken leaders explains why he so often tries to get people to see the world through a different lens.

Cars "created" highways, gas stations, fast food, suburbs. Here's what the new industrial ecosystem looks like.
No matter how cutting-edge it may seem, almost every new product you see is part of a greater whole. At its heart is the cheap collection, shipment and computation of data.

For the first time in centuries, maybe knowing something for its own sake will be a bad idea.

It's the words we don't think about carefully that become the most hazardous.
We see “innovation” almost as a force of nature, a relentless outcome by the work of tech entrepreneurs. In the process, several economists warn, we’re losing sight of social realities about innovation.

It's not just NSA surveillance: The real boom is citizens with cheap cameras monitoring their kids, their nannies with their kids, their contractors at work, their turtles. Coming next: facial recognition. Wednesday's NYT Front Page
Tiny cameras are recording the actions of people, animals and police departments.
