Found this key in a parking lot. I wonder how intentional the Bible quote on the key chain is, but it's quite apt for a lost key.

I hope the owner of the key actually does come back to find it.

I’ll put off judging that man who sold his Christ. God only knows what’s hidden in those weak and drunken hearts.

The driver told police that the Tesla was on Autopilot before the collision, and that she had been looking at her phone.

This is the same story all over again. I'm starting to wonder if Tesla's decision to sell Autopilot is immoral. People are stupid. Giving them something like Autopilot that works 95% of the time is dangerous. (I have no objections to 100% autonomous cars; at least not yet.)

Why don't news orgs such as +Wall Street Journal​ and +The New York Times​ don't provide "pay per view"?

Google recommends some story from news sites, and I am often stopped by a paywall that says "subscribe if you want to read". It takes money to produce stories that these news companies publish, and I understand they'd want to charge people for consuming that content. I am not a regular reader of any of these newspapers, so I'm reluctant to subscribe. But if there was an option to pay something like 20¢ to read that one story, I'd happily pay it.

I am sure subscribers tend to be repeat visitors, and are more valuable to publishers. But now they seem to go against the web's delivery model. In my humble opinion, this is a lose-lose for everyone.

It's been 5 years since this trip, and still remains one of our most favourite road trips.

It'll be nice when this future finally arrives, but the transportation marketplace will be very different.

#1. Making a driverless car drive safely and reliably is itself a HUGE challenge. Add to that the issue of making sure the system is secure, meaning the software or hardware of these cars should not be easily "hackable". A company controlling a fleet of self driving cars essentially have to trust that its customers will not mess with the car's hardware or software. For that, they'd need to build resilient hardware and software. That eliminates pretty much everyone except a few humongous companies to even participate.

#2. When the entire world relies on these few companies for all/most of the transportation, how are we to regulate them? I don't expect individual countries building their own solutions. Only global companies that have the resources to comply with ALL local regulations can participate (adding to #1). The regulatory scene is going to be an ugly mess. Countries would want to balance all the taxi drivers losing their job with the advantages of having driver-less cars, for example. It's also not clear who would pay for shared resources such as roads?

#3. It's going to be incredibly hard for humanity to adjust to the new world, with totally new rules. I expect this could take a century or more, with older people struggling more than younger people.

It's going to be a bumpy ride with many unexpected turns and pauses :)
