The new TransCanada pipeline isn't about getting energy east -- it's about getting crude oil east. When discussing the environmental impact of oil sands development, stop using the benign sounding "tailings ponds" when we're actually talking about "toxic sludge." Ducks aren't killed when they land in ponds.
Machines turning on their creators has been a popular theme in books and movies for decades, but very serious people are starting to take the subject very seriously. Physicist Stephen Hawking says, &q...
Recently two very intelligent and well known individuals, Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking, have made headlines by warning us about the 'dangers' of artificial intelligence (AI). While I hate to disagree with such brilliant people, I'm not as worried about the future of AI.

A century ago a computer wasn't a machine -- it was a job title. It referred to people who spent their days doing arithmetic. Then processors were created that took over the role, and society adjusted the word to a new meaning. In today's rapidly transforming economy it's important to adjust more quickly.
Great ideas rarely start out as great. But with time, with hard work, and with a little luck...they eventually get there. n a nutshell, we live in a world of science fiction, where the unthinkable is mere reality.
Arianna Huffington recently tweeted a great St. Exupery quote: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." That truth is sort of a paradox about art. The artist is always trying to capture something they can see with their hearts, but is not necessarily seen by the naked eye

Big whoop.
