Interesting bipedal robot. Has a gait like the sci-fi bots in a recent movie.
Out of nowhere, at a conference in Japan today, SCHAFT demoed a new bipedal robot designed to "help society"

Would it better - faster, more innovative, more open, less political, more reliable- to avoid federal funding for Hyperloop prototyping? I suppose it depends on the model for funding, and who is elected in November...

But it might be better to stay away from the Feds until its time to do land acquisition and construction? Here in CA we need to kill off the old-fashioned HS train boondoggle too.
The future of transportation was on display at Texas A&M University.

Facebook wants to open source AI hardware platform. There are some interesting details on design, including thermal design and serviceabilty. Pantone 375 c Green is used as a standard for service components, which seems an excellent idea to me. I had a Dodge ( unexpected supplier of cleverness) with underhood service points in yellow plastic, which worked very well. Also, electric cars use a standard orange now for power components. So kudos for open-sourcing and for good design ideas to Facebook!

Recent advances in machine learning and AI have been enabled by more powerful computers — specifically ones powered by GPUs.

Interesting piece on Musk. Some will recognize our tribe.
The critical piece of wisdom we all need to take away from this series.

An interesting tech for an old problem:

Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years. Using nanostructured glass, scientists from the University’s Optoelectronics...

TL:DR all of it and without a legal background its hard to gauge the effects, but that said, a thorough explanation of the 30.000' view of the new cycbersecurity act...
Last week, Congress enacted the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, a law tucked inside the Omnibus Appropriations Act. Here's a first effort to describe in detail how the new law changes the Internet surveillance statutes.

Bruce Schneier on fallout from Paris attacks:
one quote:
"Terrorism is singularly designed to push our fear buttons in ways completely out of proportion to the actual threat. And as long as people are scared of terrorism, they'll give their governments all sorts of new powers of surveillance, arrest, detention, and so on, regardless of whether those powers actual combat the actual threat. This means that those who want those powers need a steady stream of terrorist attacks to enact their agenda. It's not that these people are actively rooting for the terrorists, but they know a good opportunity when they see it...."

Building a .NET app to run on Linux, with or without Docker. If you have a legacy app maybe you can (re-compile) run it on Linux and get the management advantages ( and disadvantages) of containerization? Maybe.... anybody tried it yet?
