A cautionary tale of the dangers of cyberspace and the Information Age. The Machine serves humanity by facilitating transmission of ideas, but it depends on humans for them. It is humans who create ideas, test them, then discard or improve them based on human-scale judgements informed by feedback from reality. Cut out the human connection to reality, and the closed system runs itself down. This might become my favourite Tale for Our Time yet...

A Note to My Readers

WhatsApp

As I mentioned on yesterday's Clubland Q&A, I have to take off for a few weeks to remote parts in order to crack the back of a project that's been on hold for fifteen months because Cary Katz and CRTV were suing me for $10 million. (They lost.) At any rate, the coming weeks will take me somewhat off the grid WiFi-wise, and that can't be helped because it's a very small window of opportunity. Katz and CRTV have re-sued me in multiple jurisdictions, this time for a combined $20 million.
