Trying to do all I can. Which sometimes means hurting an individual. Life's a puzzle.

I highly recommend her book if you have kids of any age, or want to know how to protect yourself.
 
"It was very important to me to write this book and include a sex-positive stance. Not only because privacy is so important to us in terms of getting that space to explore who we are and what we like and don’t like in our private time, but also I don’t think that—it’s sort of like a “Just Say No to drugs” approach to people being sexually expressive in different types of media. People are going to do it. "

Improving battery life by harvesting ambient energy 

Yesterday, the New York Times featured an article discussing the ongoing research towards alternate methods of powering mobile devices (http://goo.gl/78N9tN). Among the methods mentioned was the design of a system that enables devices to communicate using ambient radio frequency (RF) energy as the only source of power.

In the paper Ambient Backscatter: Wireless Communication Out of Thin Air, recipient of Best Paper at SIGCOMM 2013 (http://goo.gl/FsOmpa), University of Washington PhD student Vincent Liu and co-authors demonstrate a new communication system that backscatters ambient RF signals, allowing data transmission without drawing on the device’s battery.

This work builds upon the Wireless Ambient Radio Power (WARP)
research by two of the paper’s co-authors, PhD student +Aaron Parks and Associate Professor +Joshua R Smith, on development of remote sensor units powered by the ambient RF signals. Read more about WARP, recipient of the Google Faculty Research Award (http://goo.gl/6XFmi) in 2011 and 2012, in our previous post at  http://goo.gl/eE4yWI.

To learn more about Ambient Backscatter, watch the video below, and read the full paper found on the project page at http://goo.gl/qQ631b.

At least the default setting was circles only. Not exactly happy that they didn't make it opt in, but they could have gone crazy and just let everyone have access.
