BTW I am not a total curmudgeon. I did sign a petition from the Center for Democracy & Technology seeking a formal response from the Obama Administration on reform of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.

I encourage you to check out their petition drive here: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/reform-ecpa-tell-government-get-warrant/nq258dxk

@Graham Bell: Thanks for video.

This raises a huge question of the ethics of drone use.

Back in a 2008 Democratic Primary Debate, Obama and Clinton both said they would iuse drone attacks to take out a known terrorist even if innocent lives might be lost. Dennis Kucinich said he did not believe such a policy was in line with American values. He got my vote that day, but not the election.

Irony Raised to the Nth Power

Certainly much fodder for late night TV.  Yes, the irony that companies who collect private data to make a buck are chastizing the government who collects private data to protect us from harm.  Apple, Google and Microsoft just managed to fall below the Congress in approval ratings.  What a bunch of bozos.  Disgust is what I feel about the 'Cloud'.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
