  • They’re here to help

      I love and hate the commercials on TV where the narrator paints a picture of a future where robots are taking all our jobs. Every old person I speak to is terrified of our AI assisted future. Look, I’ve read enough shitposts and watched enough Sci-Fi, I get it, to know that Skynet is…

  • Bitcoin is Raging

      The past 48 hours have been exciting for hodlers across the world. Crypto is raging thanks to a couple different events. 2 days ago, Blackrock released a statement that they are are setting up a group to look into cryptocurrencies and blockchain. This sent all cryptos up around 5% Yesterday, International financial watchdog, the…

  • Our 3D Printed Bill of Rights

      A couple years ago, we were promised 3D printing would change the world. “This is the year of the 3D printer” the technologists sang from the tops of the blogosphere. Time passed and 3D printers had not made it mainstream and only found a place with manufacturing and engineering firms.   There was, however,…

  • $1B Lost…

    To bullshit ICO’s     Everywhere I read tech news I come across an article¬† screaming that crypto is a bubble and you should GTFO! We went through a similar bubble with the Dot-com Bubble.

  • These Bots Are Ours

      I found this great article last week that outlines a case for AI Nationalism. The basic premise was that as AI continues to rapidly advance, national governments will intervene in order to keep that technology within it’s country. In other words, national governments will block the merge/acquisition of AI companies by either foreign governments…

Senior FBI Official, Aristedes Mahairas, is a prominent figure representing the Government when it comes to Cyber Security best practices. In a recent conversation with Business Insider, he’s on the record making bold claims about encryption:   “…every phone that…

  • The Empire Grows

      Federal Judge approves AT&T acquisition of Time Warner Cable for $85B Trump is pissed because he hates CNN and wanted to block the transaction This is a move to position AT&T in a competitive spot versus Netflix/Amazon and their content creation machine   As an AT&T customer I can only hope this acquisition means…

  • Where the meme’s come from

      At least once a week I find myself saying out loud “Thank you Internet.” You know why? Fire memes. Memes are life, but do you know where they come from? No. You’re casual and have no idea how the internet runs or its rules. That’s why you’re here, reading this half ass “newsletter” on…

  • I CAN HAZ YOUR DEVS?

      If you know any developers, they are either shitting their pants or pumping their collective fanboy fists… GitHub was officially acquired by Microsoft.   First off, WTF is GitHub? Here’s my internet knowledge of it… a place where developers dump code so others can access it.   From their mouth… GitHub is a development…
