I'm brewing a post about the future, as I think we are somewhat
entrenched in the past and present.
For the moment the powers that be are waking up to support the object
level security model, until reductionist thought strikes again :) I
guess we'll always have data at rest, data being utilised and the
resulting message passing or flows.
Anyway onwards and upwards.
a) Van Jacobson (Research Fellow at PARC) talks about new paradigms
and security problems from the network up. Jump to 38 minutes in, as
the start is a history lesson, albeit frames the old paradigms and
ensuing discussion extremely well.
Thanks Wade. Props to http://www.blog.wi.id.au/
b) Also, when looking at things like new paradigms for computing.
[Stargate replicators anyone]?
Neil Gershenfeld (MIT Director for Bits and Atoms) The beckoning
promise of personal fabrication.
"We don't need to keep having a digital revolution"
Personal note: I especially love the fact that the Google video is
subtitled and that at the time there was a person signing for the
deaf. We need to cater for all walks of life as per the colour blind
discussions on visualising data. It shouldn't just be about 'survival
of the most adaptable'. Is Future Shock and technology going to
implement an unconscious eugenics program?
