Yes, it can be done. And if they can do it, why can't Australia? Well, because open cut coal mines are beautiful while wind farms are noisy and ugly plus other solar power is never going to cut it. /sarcasm

Who does this sort of stuff? They should be locked up.

I could summarise this article but I won't. However, the opinions expressed in it (about how IT services businesses are in trouble and how "shareholder value" isn't how you should run your company) ring true to me.

And when they try to do avoid oversight deliberately, bad things happen.

When anonymous officials are quoted verbatim and there isn't any real journalistic attempt to dig further you should be highly suspicious.

Just add this little gadget. Very interesting. But does it stack up? And what if it shorts out? Hmmm.

And from a teenager who had to learn computational fluid dynamics to do it. Very neat.

That is all.

Ok, no it isn't. But coding gives you so many possible futures.

Geo-blocking sucks. But it is there because licenses have been given out for geographical regions to distribute content - physical or electronic. But it needs to go. Boo-hoo to the businesses that depend on it - everything is global now; this has been a trend for a decade or more (even before region code enforcement on DVD players was outlawed in Australia) so get with the program already.

While there has to be a bit of balance towards the privacy side of the spectrum, current governments are overwhelmingly obstructionist when it comes to releasing data the should be public.

This is a great example of community involvement and exposing issues with not only police actions but everything publicly provided.

To be clear, this is the beginning of the end for lots of jobs in the transport industry. But long-haul trucking (not high traffic areas; just the outback stuff) is ripe for this type of technology as it is an easier (but not easy!) problem to solve.

That being said - in this case they don't understand technology. They're asking for encryption that everyone can use and trust that can't be broken by the "bad guys" but can be unlocked by properly authorised law enforcement when they need it.

Can't be done. If you have something that can unlock it then it will quickly become completely unlocked. And then no-one will use it.

When an individual can manipulate the stock market (and that's bad!) what can large companies do?

This is very interesting - how to use Twitter (but it could apply to just about anything) to build a functioning, agile town.
