This link dump is to catch up for yesterday. I spent the day at Google attending New America’s joint event with ASU and Slate discussing the future of technology and governance, “Here Be Dragons“. It was an amazing mash up of scientists, policy wonks and science fiction authors. It continues through the first half of today but I couldn’t really justify taking more time off from work to continue to attend. It is being live streamed so hopefully there will be an archive video available soon.
