Eben Moglen on "how to retrofit ethics into hardware and software (robot) you have in your pocket.
When listening and understanding this, it has really opened my eyes. Even as a sci fi fan, and code junkie. I never took the step back to see robots
in this manner. I really just saw it all as software, encased within hardware devices that fit into your pocket. However this software connects to
the cloud, which I never trusted and have mixed feelings about still to this day. Further more, I have little trust in places such as carbonite or
other data storage servers taking your personal information and "safely" storing it on their servers.
I have always felt backing up your files should be on the user end. Where you have physical control of where your data is being stored.
These robots we walk around with in essence he is talking about are location beacons, and tracking our movements, and reporting back to other robots
everything we say, everywhere we go. With this kind of information at our fingertips, in essence these robots are answering our questions, and doing
most of our thinking for us now.
I also like how he references the undead to the likeness of what we are manifesting. Making the undead a beautiful thing. And how easy it is now a
days to get people to invite that Vampire Lord into your homes willingly.
I felt it was in order for me to reply again as my edit button expired.
Well worth the 50 mins of my time.
