Your Birth Month May Affect How Healthy You Are
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Being born in the summer could come with some big health benefits, according to a provocative new study by researchers at the University of Cambridge's Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit in England. The study showed that people with birthdays in June, July or August are less likely than others to have low birth weight, enter puberty early or be of short stature. "Those are all markers of growth and development that have been associated with higher risks of adult diseases," said Dr. Ken Ong, a pediatric endocrinologist at the unit and co-author of the study, in an email to The Huffington Post. "I hope people will find it fascinating that events in early life can have very long-lasting benefits." In case you're wondering, the study does not make a case for astrology. Rather, it supports the so-called "fetal programming" hypothesis. That's the idea that the environment in a mother's womb can exert a profound influence over a baby's health and development later in life. ...

The Conscious Web: When the Internet of Things Becomes Artificially Intelligent
Huffington Post - about 2 years
When Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Elon Musk all agree on something, it's worth paying attention. All three have warned of the potential dangers that artificial intelligence or AI can bring. The world's foremost physicist, Hawking said that the full development of AI could "spell the end of the human race." Musk, the tech entrepreneur who brought us PayPal, Tesla and SpaceX described artificial intelligence as our "biggest existential threat" and said that playing around with AI was like "summoning the demon." Gates, who knows a thing or two about tech, puts himself in the "concerned" camp when it comes to machines becoming too intelligent for us humans to control. What are these wise souls afraid of? AI is broadly described as the ability of computer systems to ape or mimic human intelligent behavior. This could be anything from recognizing speech, to visual perception, making decisions and translating languages. Examples run from Deep Blue who beat chess champion Garry ...

Why 'Surveillance Is The Dominant Business Model On The Internet'
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Andrew Keen, author of “The Internet is Not the Answer,” is known as the “Antichrist of Silicon Valley." He calls Google a monster, Uber a bad idea and wants governments to regulate both. He was interviewed by Max Tholl of The European. The European: Mr. Keen, in the Washington Post’s review of your new book, “The Internet is Not the Answer,” it is pointed out that many people refer to you as a Luddite but that that is not necessarily a bad thing because it means being first and foremost pro-humanity and not anti-technology. What’s your take?
 Keen: It’s just one of those terms that has lost any kind of meaning. I always associated the term with the smashing of machines, with violent resistance, of which I am not in favor. So in that sense, I don’t want to think of myself as a Luddite. The European: And in another sense? 
Keen: In America, everybody who’s questioning technology is automatically a Luddite, and in that sense I am okay being one. But the implication of t ...

Mitchell Kapor seeks to meld business, social good
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
The software executive had started a new venture after departing from his first, the pioneering consumer software company Lotus Development Corp., but the visit wasn't about either firm. The next year, Kapor, tech luminary John Gilmore and poet and former Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow formed the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to protect First and Fourth Amendment rights in the nascent digital age. EFF now helps determine copyright and privacy policy online and has been a prime investigator of recently exposed government surveillance programs. Kapor dropped out of business school and, in 1982, teamed up with Jonathan Sachs to start the Lotus Development Corp., a pioneer of spreadsheet and word-processing software. "There's an admirable belief about the virtues of meritocracy - that the best ideas prove the best results," Kapor says. Pretend a white entrepreneur with a computer science degree from Stanford and a minority entrepreneur without a college education make ...

LeWeb London 2013: It's good to share
Broad Band Engine - over 3 years
Post-conference emotions vary; usually somewhere between relief that it’s over and how much you wish 80 per cent of the speakers were as interesting, engaging and non-salesy as the 20 per cent.  How often, instead, do you come away from them 90 per cent energised? Welcome to LeWeb London 2013. I guess it certainly helps when you have a genuinely exciting and disruptive topic to talk about, that’s making headlines - as well as money - all on its own. And weirdly, when talking about making money, you probably wouldn’t think the topic was ‘sharing’. But it is. And it is. Socialism, all over again Over and again through history, when things start getting really tough for ordinary folk, they begin to turn to each other for inspiration and solutions. A socialist ethic begins to emerge (and no, I’m not talking about the Labour party) where ideas of cooperation and social ownership strengthen in the face of perceived failures from government, banks and business. Across th ...

New Movie Examines Future Of Reading
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
First published at IndieReader.com “As long as there is a good story, there will be a book,” says Vivienne Roumani, a former librarian and director of the independent movie, "Out of Print," which will be making its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on April 25. Narrated by Meryl Streep, "Out of Print" explores—via the film’s participants including late iconic author, Ray Bradbury; Author’s Guild President Scott Turow; Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos; New Yorker and CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin—whether books, as we know them, are dead and, if they are, questions if it matters in an always-on, digital world. IndieReader sat down with Roumani and asked about the inspiration behind her movie, if books are really dead, and if so, what’s next. Loren Kleinman: Talk about the inspiration behind the movie. Why books? Why now? What’s the film’s thesis? Vivienne Roumani: I wanted to invite more people to join the discussion. I was struck by the plethora of ...

How the internet works: Mapping the tubes
The Economist - over 4 years
Cyber waves Tubes: A Journey to the Centre of the Internet. By Andrew Blum. Ecco; 304 pages; $26.99. Viking; £12.99. Buy from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk“GOVERNMENTS of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind.” So begins John Perry Barlow, once a lyricist for the Grateful Dead and now a cyber-libertarian, in a tract he penned in 1996, entitled, “A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace”. It is a poetic summation of the common image of the internet as an ethereal, non-physical thing—an immanent Cloud that is at once everywhere and for ever on the far side of a screen.For Andrew Blum, a writer for Wired, that illusion was shattered on the day a squirrel chewed through the wire connecting his house to the internet. That rude reminder of the net’s...
