Boss And Goddess

When you have a job, you have a boss. When you have a startup, you have a goddess: the market.

People Freaking Out

Not me, I'd love this, but I can see how some, or more than some, people might freak out.

The windowless plane set for take-off in a decade
replacing heavy aircraft windows with uber-light smartscreen panels to cut fuel consumption and slash air fares ..... a windowless plane that nonetheless allows passengers to see what’s going on outside, as well as checking their email and surfing the net.

Global Quantum Internet

Who could have thought? Container ships carrying around the Internet.

Why Quantum "Clippers" Will Distribute Entanglement Across The Oceans
The best way to build a global quantum internet will use containerships to carry qubits across the oceans, say physicists.
a quantum version of the internet that will have the ability, among other things, to send information with perfect security ...... there is a very real possibility that the quantum Internet might only ever consist of isolated quantum islands on different continents. ..... it will be possible to send information at bandwidths measured in teraahertz ..... “Bandwidth in excess of one terahertz is feasible under realistic physical assumptions, exceeding even the fastest proposals for traditional repeater networks” .... diamond crystals in which one carbon atom has been replaced with a nitrogen atom. This creates an electron vacancy that can absorb a photon and store its quantum state ..... ocean-going quantum Clippers carrying the cargo necessary to enable a new kind of entanglement-based information economy.

Genetically Modified Crops

Not be discarded in knee jerk fashion. There has got to be a right way to gradually introduce them into the food chain.

People on the teams of Uber and the like might think it is infotainment. There is information in there. This is the most entertaining tweet I have seen in a long time! Don't tell me there is not a human angle to technology! This is the most I have ever replied to any tweet. Click here for the full show.

Security And Easy Sign In

I liked two step authentication when it came along. Google is at the center of my digital experience. Android is an easy choice for me. I might still get snooped upon for I use many services online. But if I can at least be sure my Google ID will not be compromised, that is a lot of peach of mind.

And now there is a physical key. That would make it even more secure. But I would not want more than one key. This three step authentication and the ability to Google sign in into a whole bunch of services would take care of a lot of security issues.
