A tad off topic, but relevant nonetheless. Listen to Phil Morse describe how software has revolutionized DJing (it's all good but, he gets to the crux at about twenty-two minutes in):

The above links will self-destruct in less than 24 hours!

Btw, Fintan, I hope you're having fun with Traktor 2 Scratch Pro. If anyone else wants a FREE copy of Traktor 2 (150 USD or thereabouts) and both manuals and online tutorials, please PM me.

You can have them for FREE!

You're never too old to try DJing, whatever your genre!

A free MP3 site is to be found below. Be sure to download ONLY the 320 kbps files (they're the best sound; even superstar DJs use them as an absolute standard).

Do this by clicking on the bar chart symbol. If it says 320 you're good; if it's lower, don't even bother (though 225 is passable in a club).

Does the economy exist to serve people or do people exist to serve the economy?

If work is technologically obsolete, so what?

The problem is we have accepted economic power games with people as pawns.

We should have had a 3-day work week by 1990 and double-entry accounting should have been mandatory in the schools since the 50s.

This stuff is percolating...
http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/apr/04/middle-classes-employment-earthquake

comments are all Basic Income

but it was a pleasure to read an anthropology professor from LSE write this:

Quote:
If someone had designed a work regime perfectly suited to maintaining the power of finance capital, it’s hard to see how they could have done a better job. Real, productive workers are relentlessly squeezed and exploited. The remainder are divided between a terrorised stratum of the, universally reviled, unemployed and a larger stratum who are basically paid to do nothing, in positions designed to make them identify with the perspectives and sensibilities of the ruling class (managers, administrators, etc) – and particularly its financial avatars – but, at the same time, foster a simmering resentment against anyone whose work has clear and undeniable social value. Clearly, the system was never consciously designed. It emerged from almost a century of trial and error. But it is the only explanation for why, despite our technological capacities, we are not all working 3-4 hour days.

Remember Asimo, Honda’s strange little robot from a few years back? Well, it’s back, and man, has it got some moves.

After Technology Destroys Capitalism
Posted May 3, 2014 by Jon Evans (@rezendi),

I’ve been arguing for some time now that the combination of new
technology and old capitalism will soon drastically worsen inequality.


It seems to me that technology will soon destroy jobs faster than it creates
them, if it hasn’t started to already. Which is a good thing! Most of the jobs
it destroys are bad, and most of the ones it creates are good. Net human
happiness should be vastly increased, not decreased, by this process —
but, unfortunately, capitalism doesn’t work that way.....

Interesting article Fintan. We are going to design and innovate ourselves right out of existence.

FAA: Operator of Wayward Drone Unknown
Brendan McGarry | May 12, 2014 | Defense Tech


Quote:
The Federal Aviation Administration investigated an incident last month involving a drone that nearly collided with a commercial airliner in U.S. airspace, but wasn’t able to identify who was flying the unmanned aircraft or what type of plane it was. (Oh really?)

The near-miss took place on March 22 outside Tallahassee, Florida. A U.S. Airways commuter flight operated by PSA Airlines traveling from Charlotte, North Carolina, was on an approach about five miles northwest of a runway at Tallahassee airport 2,300 feet above ground when it “passed an unreported and apparently remotely controlled aircraft,” according to a statement from an FAA spokesman.The commercial pilot reported the “near mid-air collision” to air traffic control and the agency investigated the incident, but “neither the UAS nor the pilot could be identified,” it stated, referring to the acronym for unmanned aerial system.

Indeed, the commercial pilot — whose identity hasn’t been disclosed — initially thought the two aircraft had collided, but an inspection of the airliner afterward found no damage, according to an article by Jack Nicas of The Wall Street Journal.

Jim Williams, who manages the unmanned-aircraft office at the FAA, disclosed the incident on May 8 during a drone conference in San Francisco and it’s believed to be the first case of a large commercial passenger jet almost striking a drone, according to the article. The news report said the pilot described the craft as “as a camouflaged F-4 fixed-wing aircraft that was quite small.” The FAA spokesman said some media reports have speculated whether the aircraft was actually a QF-4 unmanned aerial target flown by the Air Force from Tyndall Air Force Base outside Panama City. But a Defense Department spokesman told the Journal that “most military drones aren’t painted with camouflage” and the FAA spokesman said it would be highly unlikely for a military aircraft from Tyndall to find itself in the landing approach of a passenger jet at Tallahassee. Manned aircraft are required to fly at least 1,000 feet apart vertically and several miles apart laterally; and remote-controlled aircraft are supposed to be operated below 400 feet, according to the article.

The incident comes as the FAA is crafting guidelines for integrating unmanned systems into the national airspace by 2015. The spokesman said he wasn’t aware of any impacts the incident may have caused to the agency’s rule-writing efforts.
