Pearl River Necklace
Dutch NL Architects’ newest bridge is part of their proposal to connect Hong Kong with the mainland of China. The bridge’s dynamic twisted form is a great resolution to the differencesin driving styles, namely that in Hong Kong, people drive on the left side of the road and in the mainland China, they drive on the right side.

Perhaps the certification process should take longer. Maybe vendors should be required to exchange information with a randomly picked dozen other vendors. Maybe they should be required to maintain an instance of the software running in an accreditation lab and scripts should be run to validate the functionality is actually working, not hard coded and duct taped for one test.
Maybe we don't need a million pseudo-certified products, and pieces of products, particularly since what Wes wrote above is very true. Large vendors in other industries are also able to dictate interpretation of standards by virtue of their market share (I'm typing on one of those right now). I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with that. May even help information sharing more than the proliferation of tiny vendors no matter how many MU measures are in place.
If nothing else the 15 minute talk is enjoyable simply for concise and evocative use of language.
Turkle is not a Luddite. the MIT prof is known quite recently for her work using virtual reality to mitigate "phantom limb" pain, a devastating and sometimes untreatable problem for amputees.
If her vision is true, it is not of our generation but to our kids and grandkids. In a recent study, some students experienced notable anxiety when they have up their smart-phones for 24 hours.
Youth does everything to excess. (That is what youth is for.) Somewhere after college and before our fourth job we learn that intimacy is to be enjoyed when it available and not to confuse it with affability no matter how strong the pull of our existential angst.
The human condition has not changed, nor has our tendency to base psychological observations on the young and predict the course of history based on most extreme people.
Ms. Turkle need to listen again to Bob Dylan's Dream.

"Annular" means the sun is visible all the away around the moon. We happen to live in a very narrow swath where this eclipse was visible and anular. Pix taken through varying cloud cover with Sony NEX-7 18-200 mm zoom at 200 mm position. Raw images heavily cropped and light curves reprocessed in Lightroom 3. Pix were exposed at ISO 800 and five stops under the camera's automatic exposure setting. In retrospect they would have been better at ISO 400 and 6 or 7 stops under the automatic exposure. That should come in handy for the eclipse in 2017. I was proud of my neighbors; there was easily 250 cars at the airport. As I was leaving I saw no litter whatsoever.
