Hope Is The Consequence of Action

Last night Amy and I hosted an event at our house for the ACLU and Earthjustice, two organizations we are significant supporters of.

Digital Security Is Not Working Very Well

We live in a digital world with a false sense of security. While watching Blade Runner 2049 I smiled during a scene near the end where Deckard says to K, “What Have You Done?!?!?” I expect that this false sense of security will still exist in 2049 if humans manage to still be around.

RIP AOL AIM

Among all the distressing news of the world, I heard today that AOL Instant Messenger is shutting down on 12/15/17. AIM was the first instant messenger I used.

I... Read more The post Men, Sex, and Power appeared first on Feld Thoughts.
