I may be cynical, but it strikes me that what worries the automakers is not safety, but the competition they get from these systems.
The US Transportation Department already thinks it has the power to regulate navigation apps on your smartphone, and now it's pressing Congress to put that authority in writing. According to The...

I think that you are right. They're just jealous and government has no place in this so say some Republicans :).

Fascinating piece. It's incredible what can be done with technology, as well as the limits. I think the size of these things is one of the most astounding pieces of all of this.

I can't get this one out of my head.

Such evil - not just the sterilization, but to make Jewish doctors do this.

Treacly "girl power" ads and initiatives often fall short for me, in no small part because they tend to be reductive and as much about body policing as the mainstream sexist culture they resist. That's why this new Verizon-sponsored ad, which was made in conjunction with Makers to show parents how...

Mary Pipher kind of talks abut that in her book. It's worth a read.

That Comcast and AT&T are pretty horrible when in comes to privacy is no news, nor is it surprising. And it's also not too surprising that people stick with them, as there often are not too many good choices.

But, why on earth would anyone continue to use SnapChat? The entire reason for this app's existence is supposedly privacy. Yet they are the ONLY other organization on this list that doesn't require a warrant.

Story
Introduction
I run the Nonprofit Helpdesk, and the IT operations for the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island, which is the mother organization. I've been in the computer field for 20 years, most of it in the nonprofit sector, and it's been fascinating and rewarding. Many, many years ago I thought I was going to become a teacher, but I found that I was not a really good classroom teacher, so I decided to find something I would be good at. Computers seemed to be it. But, I wasn't too happy to be working ONLY with technology. So, I'm very, very fortunate that I've found myself in a position that is not just technology per se. I get to deal with people all the time, and some of the most important things I learned when I was going to school to teach have really really come in handy.
