Excellent perspective.
Does net neutrality really matter?
By +Andy Oram 

"I feel that network neutrality as a (vague) concept took hold of an important ongoing technical, social, and economic discussion and rechanneled it along ineffective lines. As this article has shown, technology as well as popular usage has continuously changed at the content or application level, and there are many forms of centralization I’d worry about before traffic shaping."

Technology that gets under your skin
 From  +Jenn Webb  http://oreil.ly/1h0yHKK 

Embeddables won't just be a revolution in functionality, but will dramatically alter how people fit into society. - +O'Reilly Radar 

Editor’s note: we’re running a series of five excerpts from our forthcoming book Designing for Emerging Technologies, a compilation of works by industry experts in areas of user experience design related to genomics, robotics, the Internet of Things, and the Industrial Internet of Things.

In this excerpt, author Andy Goodman, group director at Fjord Madrid, looks beyond wearable computing to a deeper, more personal emerging computing technology: embeddables. Goodman says that beyond wearables and implants lies a future symbiosis of human and machine that will transform not only the delivery of information and services, but human nature as well.

I love the bit about how the people around the Google Glass wearer are also "users" - its really true.

"It’s as though drones have been painted with a giant red 'D,' á la The Scarlet Letter."
Drone on
UAVs will rule the skies (unless the FAA says otherwise).
By +Glen Martin 

"To get drones up on their hind legs and sprinting — or soaring — they’re going to need a helping hand from the FAA. And things aren’t going swimmingly there, says attorney Schulman.

"'They recently issued a road map on the probable form of the new rules,” Schulman says,' and frankly, it’s discouraging. It suggests the regulations are going to be pretty burdensome, particularly for the smaller UAVs, which are the kind best suited for civilian uses. If that’s how things work out, it will have a major chilling effect on the industry.'"

Podcast: Solid, tech for humans, and maybe a field trip?
Jim Stogdill, Jon Bruner and Mike Loukides chat about soldier robots, malicious fridges, and smart contacts.
By +Jim Stogdill 

We were snowed in, but the phones still worked, so Jon Bruner, Mike Loukides, and I got together on the phone to have a chat. We start off talking about the results of the Solid call for proposals, but as is often the case, the conversation meandered from there.
