"Sunrise Over Mono Lake"
Mono Lake, California

While Yosemite National Park and the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains get most of the attention in California, the Eastern side of the Sierra's is certainly pretty amazing as well. One of the more popular locations (located just east of HW 120 and Yosemite is Mono Lake, which is known for its impressive tufa salt formations that have formed over millions of years from the heavily salted lake. Because of the direction that many of the tufas face, it is a great sunrise location for landscape photographers.

Epic Level LEGO Map of Middle-Earthhttp://bit.ly/1nyzk7x

Really incredible work here from Christoph Bartneck.

He has painstakingly re-created the map of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth in topographical style from LEGO. And he’s done it on a grand scale. The resulting map is apparently 2 meters by 2 meters (thats roughly 6.5 x 6.5 feet) in size and contains 30,000 bricks. It’s built up in 7 levels and took him 4 months to complete.

He’s even put the breadcrumb trail of the Fellowship’s path across Middle-Earth in there. Oh and all the major characters from the book are represented in the appropriate geographical locations via their LEGO mini-figures.

I’m just trying to figure out where I could mount this thing.

Since the creation of GIFs back in 1987, they have become incredibly popular and are now common on sites like Tumblr, Reddit and Google+. The internet is full of these quirky animations. Now a new software program by Colin Burger called Loop Findr wants to help people create GIFs more easily. The application scans through a user’s video library and identifies the perfect frames to turn into endlessly repeating GIF loops.

Do you maintain lists??
I have so many ideas and thoughts that pop into my head at the most inopportune times, and I just need way where I can jot them down in list form, somewhere, quickly. You can work with Workflowy in your browser, or with a mobile app. You can make lists, expand them, shrink them, add notes, check them off, delete them, copy them... whatever needs to be written down, I can write down there. I have many different lists, travel lists, book lists, to-do lists... you name it.
I seriously don't know who I managed before without Workflowy. I know I talked about it here before, but I surprised myself today realizing that I still love the app and use it almost every single day. I think I tried everything else before finally finding one list program that works for my needs. It adapts to my way of organizing, not the other way around. Btw, it's free. You can upgrade to pro, but so far, I didn't have to. Check it out:  https://workflowy.com/invite/22814c7e.lnx

Reading this article, I got one of those strange sensations that I had a window into a very strange future, a future vision of contracts, commerce and organizations where software plays a much more critical role than anything we might imagine today. 

This article is not going to be for everyone. Some of the ideas are a bit out there. That said, I think they are fascinating. What +Vitalik Buterin is outlining here is a "smart contract" software framework for automating business processes. What he's talking about here builds on some of the same kinds of heavily distributed validation processes that Bitcoin uses. 

Much of the magic here centers on using software to figure out whether the terms of a contract have or have not been met. When they have, the software authorizes payment. Now there are some cases where that validation is relatively straight forward, but in many cases validating that the agreement has been fulfilled, even when the processes are run in software, well, it can be tricky.

But that's nothing compared to being able to assess whether or not the contract has been fulfilled when it comes to activities that happen offline. And so one of the interesting aspects of this framework is the use of real-world, human judges to make these determinations and notify the system via text message or other means. 

I'm starting to dig much more deeply into where corporations are headed, particularly with respect to the kinds of artificial intelligence and automation that we're seeing in giants like Amazon, Google, Facebook, GE and others. But this vision is something very different and very grassroots. And that's what makes it so interesting. 

Much to learn still in this strange new world, but I will share some of my explorations along the way here as I go.  

Special thanks to +Mark Bruce for turning me on to the whole idea of "Decentralized Autonomous Organizations."

Hypothetical Question   Suppose you were President of the United States or some other big country.  Your intelligence agency has just informed you that terrorists have taken over an airliner and have indicated their intention to fly it into a skyscraper in one of your larger cities and that they will not negotiate.

That plane is now over farmland, but will soon reach the outskirts of this densely populated city.  The military has informed you that you have 10 minutes to decide whether or not to give the order to your air force to shoot down that airplane.  Once it enters the city, many times more people will be killed even if never makes it into the skyscraper.

If you do nothing thousands or more people will die, and the terrorists will have accomplished their objectives. If you order the airliner shot down, more than 300 people will die less than a minute.

What would you do?

How can search engines implement "right to be forgotten" EU policies?

+The Guardian provides some thoughtful suggestions about how search engine providers like Google should go about implementing the European Union's latest "right to be forgotten" court ruling. Thoughtful, but, unfortunately, ultimately quite impractical. I think that The Guardian got it most right when they say in the article:

The risk is that, in order to manage the interests recognised in the ruling at scale, powerful but blunt tools may be deployed. Such tools, it is feared, may serve the interests of disinformation, rather than better information and more social cohesion.

Where The Guardian seems to get it most wrong is with ill-placed idealism in spelling out how a private enterprise might or should cooperate with government authorities in implementing what amounts to personally tailored editing of the Web that can be second-guessed both by EU regulators and EU courts. Example:

Google could work with these authorities, other data controllers, academics, and practitioners to aggregate past cases, guidelines, and experience, in order to chart the contours of individual interests that data protection law must respect, and to integrate that knowledge with the growing volume of new requests. This will allow the refinement of tools and policies that can be applied consistently and respectfully, by private or public data controllers alike, in a way that is transparent to the public.

So in other words, for each of the hundreds of thousands - or possibly millions - of requests that come to a search engine for editing Web links, these companies should act with the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job and consult far and wide for each and every request - and then be ready to be second-guessed by the EU anyway. Well, if you're a tenured professor or a media pundit, perhaps that's a business plan. For a service designed to provide uncensored access to public information, not so much.

I have engaged in some heated discussions about this ruling lately, and while I regret some of the passion that I have applied to those debates I would hope that cool heads would come to realize that this is a wholly impractical ruling that expects a public communications service to act as a private editing service based on EU guidelines as fuzzy as a furball.

Existing libel and slander laws are perfectly adequate for most abuses of public publishing, and for other issues of privacy such as exposing faces in Google Street View photos reasonably sensible and implementable guidelines enable efficient respect of privacy in public information sources. This isn't a matter of the EU being wrong about everything. But it does seem to need to correct a wholly impractical and controversial ruling that fails to create clear boundaries for public information.

The British General speaking in the UN Human Rights Council about the Israeli army actions in the last war with Gaza.

Colonel Richard Kemp is man who repeatedly put his life on the line to defend the democratic world from the murderous Saddam Hussein, Al Qaeda, and the Taleban.

Here is his testament:

Thank you, Mr. President.

I am the former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan. I served with NATO and the United Nations; commanded troops in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Macedonia; and participated in the Gulf War. I spent considerable time in Iraq since the 2003 invasion, and worked on international terrorism for the UK Government’s Joint Intelligence Committee.

Mr. President, based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: During Operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defence Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

Israel did so while facing an enemy that deliberately positioned its military capability behind the human shield of the civilian population.

Hamas, like Hizballah, are expert at driving the media agenda. Both will always have people ready to give interviews condemning Israeli forces for war crimes. They are adept at staging and distorting incidents.

The IDF faces a challenge that we British do not have to face to the same extent. It is the automatic, Pavlovian presumption by many in the international media, and international human rights groups, that the IDF are in the wrong, that they are abusing human rights.

The truth is that the IDF took extraordinary measures to give Gaza civilians notice of targeted areas, dropping over 2 million leaflets, and making over 100,000 phone calls. Many missions that could have taken out Hamas military capability were aborted to prevent civilian casualties. During the conflict, the IDF allowed huge amounts of humanitarian aid into Gaza. To deliver aid virtually into your enemy's hands is, to the military tactician, normally quite unthinkable. But the IDF took on those risks.

Despite all of this, of course innocent civilians were killed. War is chaos and full of mistakes. There have been mistakes by the British, American and other forces in Afghanistan and in Iraq, many of which can be put down to human error. But mistakes are not war crimes. 

More than anything, the civilian casualties were a consequence of Hamas’ way of fighting. Hamas deliberately tried to sacrifice their own civilians.

Mr. President, Israel had no choice apart from defending its people, to stop Hamas from attacking them with rockets.

And I say this again: the IDF did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

Thank you, Mr. President.
