Like the lady who swallowed the fly, this techno-amiable public has a problem. There’s too much tech and not enough grown-up minds to handle it! Now we’re working hard to invent the spider, bird, cat and dog to catch those tech flies… It’s the drones that have done it! A new era hasn’t arrived with a bang but the need can’t be avoided and that’s pointing us down another road, what do we do with all this crap when it’s obsolete!?
Mary James sent me a friend request. She already had 116 friends between Nigeria and the city I live in. Her images were of German porn actress Anny Aurora. I thought it might be fun to “Give feedback or report this profile” to Facebook. (9 mins)
Thus far, 2019 has been almost a thrill-a-minute hackey hack hack fest. How should our boundaries shift? (8 mins)
It’s funny, there’s trends and there’s stuff that happens anyway. Like in school: There was the talk of the locker room or cafeteria and then there were the kids just making it real regardless. (5 mins)
Lately, the Twitter-guy and Facebook-guy (that brevity is explained in the episode) have made the rounds sooth-saying their user base. I never fell for it and thought it was pretty wasteful to travel around saying nothing substantive until it dawned on me that their words weren’t for my ears but to still regulator’s pens. Spoiler – So much stuff that I fail to cover all the ground I intended to cover today. Lots of Links to fill any gaps or continue research….
Think about what it took to get smartphones so normal that the idea of a cell phone company not offering a smartphone seems silly. Some news articles point to the idea that everything exists now if a person were rich enough that they could be the whiz to put drones, day and night, into our daily lives. Our culture then could be as defined by drone traffic overhead as it already is by cell phones today. I’m not saying I like it but I’m saying we need to confront our feelings about it now because barring the improbable likelihood of some catastrophic event knocking drone dreams out of the sky, they’re coming. And I’d say in a about a decade.
With the Internet behind so much access to infrastructure and anyone able to access anything given the right credentials, isn’t it time to not just issue new passwords but also consider accountability through issuing licenses? History already shows this can be effective with some citizen right-mindedness in place. With one person’s mistakes affecting dozens of other people, should we make rules? We already have special licenses for driving special vehicles and using reserved communications. What’s the alternative? An episode with big but pointed questions about security and responsibility.
We all have some great expectations about technology and what’s in store for us around the next corner. Producers count on our reliable gullibility and feed us daydreams and half-truths which run counter to the positive experience whole-truths might bring on. Regardless of what we hear, we can control what we know since technology isn’t some spiritual totem animal that needs a prophet to interpret. In this episode, 5G – what it is and what it isn’t and also, “Broadband,” what it is and what it isn’t. There’s not alot of gray! What we expect should be nothing less than what these things are – and at their best, there are some interesting truths to swallow.
Today’s high technology surfers probably won’t cross paths with the next billion surfers though both will contribute almost equally to the profits of retailers.
The Internet has pieces. One piece is the world wide web. The www is broken because we’re broken. If we’re going to fix it, we’ve got to fix ourselves too. Fixing it means knowing what’s wrong in the first place. It’s just a howling mess…
