There are great benefits to connectedness, but we haven't wrapped our minds around the costs.

time is a flat circle
Topic: Miscellaneous 6:44 am EDT, Jun  2, 2015

Taylor Owen:

Acts of war have become spatially and conceptually boundless. The once legally and normatively established lines between war and peace and between domestic and international engagement are disappearing. This is leading us to a place of predictive governance, based on unaccountable and often unknowable algorithms. Increasingly tools and the algorithms that power them are being used to automate violence.

Leah Hunt-Hendrix:

The surveillance future is here, and it is not evenly distributed. Innovations in technology are fundamentally political, and our responses need to be political in turn.

Violet Blue:

Some suggest the new classifications seem designed to give the US a market advantage over the buying, selling, import and export of certain tools used in cyberwar -- a currently black market, in which the US government is already the biggest player.

These concerns, not surprisingly, are causing freakouts in nearly every corner of the information security sector.

If the goal is keeping the technologies of oppression out of the hands of despotic regimes, it's clear that Wassenaar and its distillation into BIS's new rules are primed to miss the mark in every way.

the noise of life
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:23 am EDT, Jun  1, 2015

Saul Bellow:

The enemy is noise. By noise I mean not simply the noise of technology, the noise of money or advertising and promotion, the noise of the media, the noise of miseducation, but the terrible excitement and distraction generated by the crises of modern life ... The noise of life is the great threat ... The sounds of the public sphere, the din of politics, the turbulence and agitation that set in about 1914 and have now reached an intolerable volume.

Nathaniel Rich:

The world is too noisy. And it is getting noisier every day. The problem is not really technological or literary. It is moral; it is a human problem.

Elizabeth Kolbert:

Wherever we go, we'll take ourselves with us. Either we're capable of dealing with the challenges posed by our own intelligence or we're not. Perhaps the reason we haven't met any alien beings is that those which survive aren't the type to go zipping around the galaxy. Maybe they've stayed quietly at home, tending their own gardens.

line of sight
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:23 am EDT, Jun  1, 2015

George Lucas:

Look around you. Ideas are everywhere.

Michiru Hoshino:

Oh! I feel it. I feel the cosmos!

Freeman Dyson:

Most of what we see in the universe is dust.

how much is your while worth?
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:22 am EDT, Jun  1, 2015

Bradley Horowitz:

We make it so that ... there's no cognitive burden to actually saving everything.

"Google", via Charlie Warzel:

Let us know everything about you. We promise it'll be worth your while.

Samantha Power:

There are great benefits to connectedness, but we haven't wrapped our minds around the costs.

a line that has not yet been drawn
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:22 am EDT, Jun  1, 2015

Ellie Kemper:

I once heard an exec say, "If you don't ask for it, we can't give it to you."

Alan Travis:

The MPs and peers suggested that the new legislation should list every intrusive capability available to the security services and specify their purpose, authorisation procedure and what safeguards and oversight procedures exist for their use.

Adrian Bridgwater:

Where 'actionable intelligence' for military requirements meets consumer-level wearable big data channels is a line that has not yet been drawn.

the real truth
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:26 pm EDT, May 28, 2015

Nathan Freed Wessler:

The border is not a constitution-free zone.

Eric Kayne:

Jim Dillon was not convinced.

"I didn't believe a single thing he just said," Dillon declared. The crowd applauded with gusto.

Vanessa Williams:

"You can't talk sense to them," Bush said, referring to terrorists.

"Nooooo!" the audience roared.

Bunk Moreland:

The bigger the lie, the more they believe.

Thomas Fuentes:

Keep Fear Alive. Keep it alive.

Eric Kayne:

"No," Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said recently, when asked at a press conference whether the military was planning to take over Texas.

Chuck Canterbury:

The fact is, a riot can happen in any city in America.

"Leonard Nimoy":

It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth?

The answer ... is No.

for the good of others
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:58 pm EDT, May 27, 2015

Martha Raddatz:

Let me offer you all some very quick practical advice on how to succeed in the workplace. Eight simple words. "Of course, I would love to work late!"

All of the people who I truly admire have attributes in common. They seek a life of learning, asking questions and making complex judgments both morally and professionally. They do not seek power or wealth, but if they achieve those things they use it for the good of others.

Stephen Fry:

Of course it took ages, because anything worth doing does.

Ben Thompson:

Perhaps we need to think of Apple as a design company with a specialty in computers, not the other way around.

The ideology is design. It is a shared belief system that "No" is more important than "Yes," that focus is essential to making great products, and that no one individual is essential.


You may rarely look at it, but you'll always feel it.

This is our signature, and it means everything.

Kevin Kelly:

Five years is what any project worth doing will take. So, how many 5 years do you have left? This clarifies your choices. What will they be?

Jyri Engestrom:

Great people genuinely laugh at themselves, and aren't afraid to admit being wrong. They listen, learn, are humble, and get over it. They love themselves enough to let go of their own ego.

Colin Powell:

Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.

a troubling amount of emotional remove
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:53 pm EDT, May 25, 2015

Akli Adjaoute, founder and CEO of Brighterion:

AI has become 'like wow,' in Silicon Valley today.

Virginia Eubanks:

Like drones, decision-making algorithms are a form of politics played out at a distance, generating a troubling amount of emotional remove.

Sam Altman:

As valuable as planning is, if a great opportunity comes along you should take it. One of the benefits of working hard is that good opportunities will come along, but it's still up to you to jump on them when they do.

J.P. Morgan:

To begin, conduct by certain individuals has fallen short of the Firm's expectations.

Ellen Chisa:

It turns out there isn't much difference between how financial debt works and how technical debt works.

J. Alex Halderman:

There's just too much dead wood that's accumulated over the years.

Evan Gilman:

We've discovered we can tip over an entire ZooKeeper cluster with a single poison packet.

Stuart Russell:

Is it necessary to worry about undecidability for AI systems that rewrite themselves?

less than one-half of one percent
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:51 pm EDT, May 25, 2015

Nick Turse:

Killers are often ordinary. They often live next door, especially when they've killed in the service of their government.

David Zucchino:

While the U.S. waged a war in Vietnam 50 years ago with 2.7 million men conscripted from every segment of society, less than one-half of 1% of the U.S. population is in the armed services today -- the lowest rate since World War II.

Martha Raddatz:

As you choose opportunities and ideas, the people you work with, and those you choose to love, those who animate, inspire and energize you will define the quality of your life's experience. Do not waste your time with people who do not help bring out the best in you.

Vikram Dodd:

Mak Chishty, the most senior Muslim officer in Britain's police service, said friends and family were best placed to intervene. Questions should be asked, he said, if someone stops shopping at Marks & Spencer ... "We are in unchartered water ... We are facing a risk, a threat which is global, which is powerfully driven by social media, reaching you on your own through your mobile phone."

The PLA Daily:

The use of wearables with Internet access, location information and voice-calling functions should be considered a violation of confidentiality regulations when used by military personnel.

James Comey:

The Internet is the most dangerous parking lot imaginable.

did not once participate
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:51 pm EDT, May 25, 2015

Aseem Malhotra:

Nearly one in three people alive today is overweight or obese -- two out of three adults in the United States -- and no country has lowered its obesity rate since 1980.

Sara Germano:

Roughly 83 million Americans age 6 and over, or about 28% of the population, reported that they did not once participate in any of 104 specific physical activities in the last calendar year.

Rafil Kroll-Zaidi:

Most lost body weight is exhaled as carbon dioxide.
