I have to admit that it was kind of exciting to talk with one of the Solar Impulse 2's pilots.

It was Uber's latest ... interesting move. Will it change how public-private research partnerships are done?

This is weird. Robotics companies tend to grow slowly, but the market is poise for rapid growth. Why are all the best companies staying private?

Don't you hate it when company comes calling and starts issuing orders?

Did it really take the feds this long to launch an attack on NK's (14-node) internet?
North Korea scores.

Carr is wrong here about one point: The Interview censorship is a one-off event. Foreign powers won't make a habit of censoring American movies through hacking and threats of terrorism. 

On the other hand, he's right that we've crossed a Rubicon here. Once you've given in to a bully, it's easier to give in another time. 

President Obama is wrong -- if North Korea is behind this, it most definitely is an act of war. It's the threat of violence that makes the difference. 

Other points Carr makes are good ones: 

- When Hollywood faced a threat to the entire industry, other studios and industry associations ran away and hid under the bed. 

- After suffering a major hack attack in 2011, how the heck did Sony not harden its network?

- Oddly, Carr himself slaps Sony on the wrist for making the movie about a real dictator rather than a fake one (as Charlie Chaplin did). Isn't that the precise creative freedom we're arguing about here?

North Korea looked weak in threatening the US over a trivial thing like a stoner-buddy-comedy-thriller. But by capitulating, Hollywood made the US look weaker.
