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'.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
