3 to 3: Orycon 2013 interview with Jay Lake — In which Camille Alexa interviews me.
Amazon to deliver by drone? Don’t believe the hype — Jeff Bezos’s ‘plan’ for drone deliveries is little more than a publicity stunt – timed for the biggest online shopping day of the year.
Compulsory Monogamy in The Hunger Games — This story has it right. A polyamorous solution, logical and satisfying as it might be, would never have made it on to the pages of the book or into the film.
Robot Handjobs Are The Future, And The Future Is Coming — Uh, yeah. (Thanks, I think, to David Goldman.)
Evangelical historian remains key ally of right — More on the profound and knowing intellectual dishonesty of America’s Evangelical Right. That whole not bearing false witness thing in the Bible? It’s one of the optional Ten Commandments. Lying for Jesus is never a sin, I guess. (Via Slacktivist Fred Clark.)
Dozens of same-sex couples wed in Hawaii as new law takes effect — Another bigotry domino fallen. Just for reference, have any of the Right’s apocalyptic predictions for gay marriage (and repeal of DADT) come true? Even remotely? Anywhere? Not that there is ever any accountability whatsoever for conservative hysteria, but still.
Since rich people don’t create jobs, why are conservatives taken seriously on economics? — This isn’t he-said-she-said economic theory. This is known fact, demonstrable time and again through empirical evidence just like evolution or climate science. Since when have facts ever stood in the way of a conservative position? It’s an entire ideology founded on explicit rejection of reality. In their own words conservatives have made it clear they have no interest in evidence-based thinking, except when it supports their interests.
