top 32 Cities Want To Challenge Big Telecom, Build Their Own Gigabit Networks
Republicans in the right pocket and Democrats in the left pocket. Third party candidates don't have a chance. Your vote doesn't count for shit. Until people start seriously voting for third parties the gov't is bought and paid for.
top The Physics of Space Battles

top The Physics of Space Battles
I recommend The Lost Fleet book series by Jack Campbell to anyone interested in realistic space battles, that take into account relativistic aspects and the speed of light. Also the 90's TV show Babylon 5 nailed newtonian physics, but the ships engaged in close battle for the sake of visual entertainment. You can see Starfuries and White Stars strafing like the Asteroids video game.

top Weapons Systems That Kill According To Algorithms Are Coming. What To Do?
The fucking CIWS has been in operation since 1980. It picks it's targets/threats.
I'm not scarred. We won't be just randomly letting loose killbots in the streets to clean them up. And it's not like they won have any safeties, kill switches, dead man switches, human oversight or manual overrides.
