The new world order of technology


www.bbc.co.uk

Here amid the lush mountains of Lake Tahoe in Northern California, technologists have been discussing what has been billed as "a new philosophy of progress" at the first ever Techonomy Conference.

The organisers are hoping the name will soon become common parlance but for the moment they are quite happy to explain their thinking behind the event as one that discusses the role that technology has in solving some of the world's thorniest problems from climate change to education to innovation.

The economic agenda of the technocrat elites. Attendees includes Bill Gates, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, T Segway inventor Dean Kamen and Sun co-founder and so-called "Edison of the internet" Bill Joy.


Google's Mr Schmidt countered this with the comment that "I spend most of my time assuming the world is not ready for the technology revolution that is happening."

I agree with it though. Technology is for as what language was to the Hebrews and Greeks. A level playing field for all. A poor man with a 100 dollar computer can make a program that can do work for a major billion dollar corporation to which they then have to pay him.

I embrace technology. Let it rip down the secrets of the world and show all as they truly are.

HP on Privacy: Info Will be Bigger Than Oil
HP's Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy and Technology Office Shane Robinson spoke this morning at Techonomy and adressed consumer data privacy extensively. "Information is the most important resource of the 21st century," he said. "It's not oil, it's not water. The right policies are essential if we're going to exploit those resources."
techonomy.typepad.com...



Google CEO Eric Schmidt spoke on a panel at Techonomy today and offered some juicy facts and perspective worth taking note of.
Schmidt emphasized that much of that data explosion is attributable to the rise of user generated content. With that data comes powerful new analytic possibilities.

"If I look at enough of your messaging and your location, and use Artificial Intelligence," Schmidt said, "we can predict where you are going to go."

"Show us 14 photos of yourself and we can identify who you are. You think you don't have 14 photos of yourself on the internet? You've got Facebook photos! People will find it's very useful to have devices that remember what you want to do, because you forgot...But society isn't ready for questions that will be raised as result of user-generated content."

On Anti-Social Behavior and Data

"The only way to manage this is true transparency and no anonymity," Schmidt said. "In a world of asynchronous threats, it is too dangerous for there not to be some way to identify you. We need a [verified] name service for people. Governments will demand it."

Technology is technology (until it becomes AGI anyways). Elitist plutocrats using it to enslave is a whole other story. Look at the cast to get an idea here. On their site they embrace Malthus and Marx as their inspiration.

I know this isn't what your thread is about but I had a a thought the other day and I am always wondering should I shed all this technology and return to the nature way and live off the Earth or should I embrace our times and the technology and all the bull# the comes with it..

Well it hit me, it's not as bad as it sounds because as long as there are people intruding on us and our privacy, there will always be people there to oppose that and I will be one of the ones who shield, protect, and block myself from being intruded on to far..

You can't enslave people with technology. It simply cannot be done. Technology liberates, it can never enslave. Just about the only exception to this rule is the cotton gin.

The ultimate end point of technology is a union of AI and man's brain in a world where everything is known.

To quote from a video game:

I don't think that many realize how true the thread title is.

While we are arguing about gay marriage, they are launching satellites.

While we figure out who deserves Health Care, they are defining the intricate aspects of human behaviour.

While we argue about tax addendums, they are developing Silent Weapons.

Now watch this hand...-sleights-

Wow those are some bold absolutist statements. You clearly have blind faith in the technology messiah (and the social darwinist plutocrat eugenicists behind it)...

No?
The Neuro-Invasive Nanobot Takeover

Try again. And besides, future tech's aside, we're already being enslaved by it and have been all our lives.

So you want to jack into the Borg hivemind collective? Good luck with that. I'll keep my own thoughts as my own, and won't have people imposing their thoughts directly into my brain. The funny thing about 'collective consciousness' type talk is how dumb people become when they get in groups. Herd mental retardation is only cured by individuality. But hey if you don't think highly enough about yourself as an individual, and need to jack everyone else into your brain to get that ultimate feeling of fitting in... then the indoctrination has worked like a charm on you and the Establishment is succeeding in enslaving you with technology.

Technological developments are only effective if the human spirit grows along. That is not the case on our planet.

We don't need new technology, we need it to use more effectively and our planet would be a paradise for all of us.

I'm torn on this subject. On one hand I definetly embrace technology as a tool that is essentially our next evolutionary step. Think of all the wonders that technology has brought us, from high-tech toys to being able to save lives that 100 years ago would have been lost. That being said, though, I also believe that we should be extremely weary of the fast paced advancement of technology. I'm sure we can all imagine what kind of horrific terror technology COULD bring in the coming decades. Ever since we could communicate ideas about the future, there has been absolute fear about what it may bring. Movies haven't helped much either. Or maybe they have? Maybe what we project on-screen is actually preparing and teaching us about the potential dangers of technologically advanced creations in the future. Maybe we are warning ourselves of the future before the future even arrives?

Yes? Put your head in a brain scanner. Plop. They're dead. You cannot use technology to enslave. It is simply discarded. Look at how fast video games are cracked. How fast Iran hijacked the US intel system to get images from their UAVs. You can't do it. Because anytime some big bad bunch of folks tries, a small team of more educated kids breaks it.

That's the way it's always been. Because by the time you are in a position to actually do anything you are speaking of, you've already garnered enough enemies that they will rip you to shreds if you dare even tread upon them.

The hacker world is and always will be in the hands of the free. To hack, in essence, is to break in order to liberate. And the world will always be at the mercy of the anarchical hacker.

I have simple words for your paranoid view of those plans.

Anything you can think about, I bet I can find away past it to hack, break, or destroy those chains you build for me. I will always do this. And you will always try to chain me. And I will always break free. For when all the universe is nothing, when every star has died, when every thing is gone, and only the photon remains, there will be nothing left to stop it. At the end of the day, freedom wins. To death or freedom. Your choice to which. For even that photon will decay. And in the end, nothing will remain. You and your chains will be gone, and the last echoes will be of my freedom, and your failure to stop it.

This is far from true. Throughout history, and everything else being equal, the army with superior tech wins. The problem is that the elite have the pinnacle of innovations pretty much hidden, and/or unavailable to the public. We're already pretty well enslaved by the system, and technology helps put the odds against us. If it weren't for entities like black-ops publicly stating that their tech is at least 6-8 years ahead of the public sector, I might be inclined to think otherwise. The fact is that the playing field is anything but level, and the advancements are becoming so rapid, that the situation is pretty much critical and should be looked at with a wide open mind.

We are at a low point for government being good, yes. But even as a half bad borderline police state, the US remains the freest place on Earth. So honestly I'd trust them over anyone else.

I'd say that unless they start taking our guns or doing something bad, I don't care.

The amount of hackers that would quite literally bring the US to its knees if they ever tried anything simply makes it impossible for the US to become a dictatorship.

Once you give the people freedom, God help you if you ever retract it.

See here:
agimanhattanproject.com...
Scroll down to the AGI Manhattan Project section. Then be sure to follow thru to the AGI Panopticon section. Follow up on all of the links. Take it all in. Don't react, just take. Think it all over really good, as a combined system, which is what it's intended to be. Then react.

From there you might consider taking some time to get caught up on all of the Cyber-Security actions they're taking. I didn't spend enough time on it in that piece.

This isn't CD copy protection we're talking about here.

They're hiring all of the top hackers to STOP hackers.

Just because there are weak links in various sectors of the system doesn't mean you're going to hack the military / NSA Global information Grid.

They're closing the loops that allow people to remain anonymous, what's left of them.

They're building next-gen AI-enabled resilient systems.

They're drugging the water to make people docile.

We're already under de facto marshal law.

They're literally plundering our wealth (what's left of it), at a progressive rate as they gain better technology to do it with.

They're making it where we can't do or say anything, or go anywhere, without all of it being monitored and cataloged.

Perhaps most importantly, your attitude would have people not even bother to think of doing anything, and to fully embrace the plutocrat eugenicists no matter what they do.

The Gorman91 Challenge!!!

Hack a cell phone so that it can't track your location, and so that government agencies nor corporations can listen to your conversation, listen in on the room with the microphone, or see thru the camera.

Make a website showing how to do it and I'll celebrate it and endorse it heavily on my site(s). I've been dying to have pages on that in my "NWO Hacking & Survival" section...

Do that and all of this elitist technocrat support you've trumpeted in here might actually have a leg to stand on.

NOTE: Going and special ordering an expensive 'specialty' encryption phone -that you'll likely have a hard time getting service for- doesn't count.

The true nature and scope of the electronic control grid being quietly created is humanities number one threat towards its dwindling freedoms.

There will come a day likely in our lifetime where wireless technology will be able to broadcast directly into the center of conscious in the human brain and not just monitor your thoughts, but very likely be able to override your own mind’s control of your body.

People laugh at this but Israeli scientists have identified what they believe to be the source of consciousness in the brain. Cell phone companies are already offering wireless rechargers that use wireless technology to send electricity through the air to your phone. The next generation of electrical appliances are going to be wireless too.

So the technology is coming rapidly online and sadly it’s in the hands of some of the greediest, power driven and unscrupulous people on the planet.

While many people refuse to believe such a fate is possible let alone imminent I already know it is being effectively used as a week after the conclusion of my debate against Skyfloating in the debate forum it has still not been judged! (hint, hint). Clearly they are using this technology to keep the ATS judges from rendering a decision on the debate.

So yes it’s real, very real!

You people said the same thing about electricity.

.. seriously, how can you explain critical thinking to idiots?

This thread is about an ambiguous video regarding the future and it contains...

What?

I don't even know what it contains: An evil conspiracy about the future?

I suppose you weirdos think this is message from the powers that be saying they are going to control your economy, minds, and futures....

... you know, because they've been doing it so well.

And do you know what happens then? Not even the very people doing it themselves can escape. They, too, become docile. To about 10 thousand years down the line, if we are still around, a few people WILL have immunity. I today have immunity to a large number of these so-called super drugs. I have violent outbursts all the time. I am having a really hard time keeping back the need to start a rebellion. If anything, these drugs have the opposite effects, making me savage. I am increasingly growing difficult to remain civilized in this world.

The point is simple. Control never survives. In time something will happen. Immunity, for example. Another example? The same thing that happened to Rome. They whole country becomes retarded and falls. And the cycle starts over. Or perhaps a more violent nation does the same thing, only making its people more violent but still under control. Then you're pretty much screwed.

The reason I have no reason to fight is because I am looking thousands of years into what might happen. And it always ends the same way. Freedom wins one way or another.

So really, you can enjoy the world you are creating. I will take things as the come. put a chip in me? I'll walk into a magnet, by by. Put one of those stupid tags like the ones they have on clothes? 10 seconds in the microwave messes up the electronic signature without cancer risk. by by. Put microbes in me? Again, all I have to do is walk into a magnet.

I'm unstoppable. You'll have to kill me.

And then in a few more years someone like me will comer again. And eventually one of them will get lucky. By sheer probability eventually someone will come along and hack the planet or something.

When I was young I had to use my will power early on to stop twitches, and what not. So I do have higher resistance to these things anyway.

In the end, it's inevitable. Freedom will win.

And at the end of the day, everything ends. Everything dies. Why should I worry? In time all things that are, end. Maybe a solar flare will release a few thousand people. Again, by by government.

Panic and age faster as you will. I enjoy life. Currently I'm thinking about eventually getting involved in the government. Hey. If I find anything out, I'll abort the planning.

I am immune. And if killed, another like me will come. So there's nothing to worry about. I win by probability and the slow inevitable closure of time.

Jeez. It took you all of that and all you had to say was 'since I can't beat them I'm trying to figure out how to join them'.

Since they're the ones pushing these technologies that should have been your first option anyways, or was it all along??
