Last minute writing contest entry received!

Defcon short story submission received!

It came down to the wire, but I got my story submitted.  Well, half of it anyway.  yea, i ended my story with the classic “To Be Continued”  Now i need to set to work on the conclusion.

Thanks to Sora, Paul, and my wife for not killing me while I got crazier and crazier over this project.

I will post both Part 1 and Part 2 here at some point.  Official Entries can be found here.  I want to  finish one more pass of edits first.  But get to reading, only 1 week to vote!

Return visit to Hart Attack to talk about hacking!

This was even more of a meandering discussion then last time.  We started with the election hacking scandal and branched out to cover all manner of terrifying technology.   Episode 123 airs on Christmas evening 8pm PST.  Downloads available sometime after here or podcast.  Here is a link:

Hart and I have worked together for some time.  He is a mogul of all things horrific.  Now he takes on the horror of the modern day with a political/news podcast.  He is also struggling under the enormous weight of the medical care for his wife.  I encourage anyone with extra funds this holiday season to contribute here.

The Future has awesome amazing infrastructure like this!

Solar Freaking Roadways!  This is even better that the smart roads i have been reading about for years!  LED roadways make so much sense.  Not just to warn drivers of obstacles ahead, or to change parking lot configurations.  It can even change lane configurations based on traffic patterns.  Like the golden gate, our roads could shift the number of east vs west bound lanes to account for traffic. The only down side is the cost, i’ve seen estimates all over the map.  How much did our present roadways cost if you added it all up?  I bet that has been plenty expensive as well.  What about the Railroads?  These things are expensive, but infrastructure is worth it.  When we spend money like this we are paying ourselves to build a better tomorrow.
