Dwayne Phillips ' Day Book

Items I happen to view each day. Science, Techonology, Management, Culture, and of course Writing

This is my day book for this week. I have modeled this after science fiction and computer writer Jerry Pournelle's view, or as he calls it, his Day Book. I encourage you to see Jerry Pournelle's site and subscribe to his services.

The era of semi-autonomous, platooning trucks is rapidly approaching. Smart folks are working the details, we hope. I drive I-81 in Virginia—more truck traffic per mile than anyplace. I can see some good here, but the potential for bad also exists.


Is the era of the small startup over (again)? Current conditions are favoring the established, well funded.

Google starts a new bug-bounty program aimed at finding troubles with apps on its Play Store.

A physical penetration tester describes the ease of walking into guarded facilities via the front door.

Past age 50 with decades of experience in advanced technology? Great resume. Good luck finding a job.

A coding bootcamp is caught making ridiculous claims of jobs after graduation.

The bottomless pit of hatred is what large parts of the Internet has become. There are still good use cases.

The first $5Billion did nothing, but the Gates are going to try another couple Billion$ to help public education.

Point a neural network at 20 years of Slashdot content and you get silly headlines.

A big price cut comes to the Essential Phone.
