De Wet van Moore – dat de rekenkracht van computers elke anderhalf tot twee jaar verdubbelt – is een van de grote cliché’s van onze moderne technologische samenleving. Maar volgens The Futurist is er een opvolger: de Wet van Wright. Die is toepasbaar op veel meer dan transistoren alleen, maar op 62 technologische sectoren. De wet stelt bovendien dat de exponentiële groei het gevolg is van onze gezamenlijke inspanning – en dus allesbehalve een onontkoombaar gegeven is. Het werk van Nikola Tesla vormde de basis voor draadloze communicatie, dat wisten we al. Stel je een psycholoog voor die vooral bekend is van zijn zoektocht naar het menselijk zelfbewustzijn. Hoe krijg je zware metalen uit de grond? En de fraude van Diederik Stapel, die blijft maar groeien in omvang. Stel: je bent een universiteit en je wilt iemand aannemen. Het regent vaker op vochtige dan droge gebieden. Moore's Law wordt Wright's Law Moore's Law wordt Wright's Law
Door: Jacqueline Quarles van Ufford, 25 april 2015 ‘We halen groengas uit shit, daar komt het in het kort op neer,’ aldus ondernemer en uitvinder Kirsten Zagt. En dan niet uit koeienmest maar uit rioolslib en groente- en fruitafval. Deze aanpak komt bovendrijven uit vele experimenten die onderdeel uitmaakten van het Nederlandse innovatieplatform. Wanneer alle rioolslib volgens de methode van Kirsten wordt vergist, levert dit via het aardgasnet voldoende groengas op voor alle huishoudens in Nederland. Inmiddels hebben de Gasunie, GasTerra en Bareau, het ingenieursbureau van Kirsten Zagt, de handen ineen geslagen. ‘Waterzuiveringstechnieken bij de Waterschappen zijn ouderwets en innovaties komen vaak niet verder dan plak en knipwerk’. Rendement van 80% ‘Nu kopen boeren mais in om de mestvergister aan te vullen en het rendement van biogas uit koeienmest te verhogen,’ aldus Kirsten.

How the Internet of Things will Impact our Productivity The Internet of Things is a phenomenon many people talk about, but most fail to understand its nature and implications on the future of our daily lives – including our economic and individual productivity. According to a Harvard economist, Michael Porter, the Internet of Things has the potential to boost the efficiency of enterprises in driving the market towards innovation. On the individual level, technologies which are part of the Internet of Things will make professionals more productive than ever – effectively changing the face of work organization and management. Here's a detailed overview of how the Internet of Things will make us all more efficient in the near future. What exactly is the Internet of Things? The Internet of Things (IoT) is a phrase that many experts think doesn’t accurately capture the idea behind the increasing number of smart, connected objects. How will the Internet of Things impact the economy at large? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. The Internet of Things in the future How the Internet of Things will Impact our Productivity
DARPA’s new cheap robot is capable of changing apparent shape, color, temperature and more By End the Lie In nature, some organisms use bioluminescence to communicate. DARPA’s soft robot achieves the same glowing effect by pumping chemiluminescent solutions through channels in the robot’s color layer. It seems that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has taken a major step forward in creating an astoundingly cheap and quite small robot that “can change the color, contrast, pattern, apparent shape, luminescence, and surface temperature of soft machines for camouflage and display,” according to a report published in Science. Along with the DARPA-funded miniature spy computer known as the Falling or Ballistically-launched Object that Makes Backdoors (F-BOMB), this robot very well could be produced for less than $100 per unit with costs going down even further over time. The robot, which is part of the Maximum Mobility and Manipulation (M3) program, is around the size of an average person’s palm and can be seen in motion in the below video provided by DARPA: DARPA’s new cheap robot is capable of changing apparent shape, color, temperature and more
Lifting the Veil on NRO Satellite Systems and Ground Stations Washington, D.C., October 4, 2012 – Today, the National Security Archive posts the fourth in a series of electronic briefing books concerning secrecy and satellite reconnaissance - one of the most sensitive areas of U.S. intelligence-gathering. Specific satellite programs whose declassification is covered in this briefing book include some of the earliest and, at the time, most secretive programs of their kind: CORONA, ARGON, LANYARD, GRAB, POPPY, GAMBIT, HEXAGON, and QUILL. The 78-document collection, obtained mostly under the Freedom of Information Act, consists of eight parts covering declassification actions from 1973 to 2012 involving satellite programs, ground stations, and launches. For example, long gaps can exist between the date a particular satellite program has been terminated and the date information about it is released -- up to almost four decades in some cases. Among the specific revelations in the collection: By Jeffrey T. Table 1. Table 2. Table 3. Documents Lifting the Veil on NRO Satellite Systems and Ground Stations
Why is a missile site like a latrine? | On The Brink Earlier this week, I was invited to talk to a roomful of intelligence analysts at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, commemorating the 50h anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis. We were joined by two intelligence veterans, Dino Brugioni and Vincent DiRenzo, who first identified the presence of Soviet medium-range missiles on Cuba, on October 15, 1962. The photograph above shows DiRenzo, then a young CIA officer, (far right) at a light table in October 1962, examining photographs taken by one of the U-2 spy planes that flew over Cuba. It was these photographs that triggered the hair-raising "thirteen days" when the world came closer than ever before-or since-to nuclear destruction. As I told the NGA analysts, the Cuban missile crisis marked the hour of the photo interpreter. Of course, the photo interpreters did not succeed in getting everything. Even on the edge of nuclear apocalypse, the photo analysts managed to retain a sense of humor. Why is a missile site like a latrine? | On The Brink

I Spy on My Own Wi-Fi Q. How can I see who is connected to my home Wi-Fi network? A. Depending on your interest in technical fiddling, you can see what other devices are connected to your network in several ways. For one, you could log into your wireless router’s administrative page and check its DCHP Client Table (sometimes called the DHCP Client List or Attached Devices, as some router companies use different terms) to see the roster of computers, smartphones, tablets and other gear currently connected to the wireless router.
15 iPhone Tricks Apple Has Been Hiding From You The ongoing debate between Android and Apple users just got a little more complicated. While both surely have qualities that appeal to all kinds of smartphone users, Apple’s staple characteristic of being more “user-friendly” may or may not be a load of false advertising. With its almost too-simple interface, iPhones have essentially remained the same since their origination. However, with every new edition of this popular device, there also comes a few major and minor updates – many of which we may not even realize exist. Apple engineers may be patting themselves on the back for their progressive shifts in this user-friendly phone, but perhaps they should have a word with the advertising department first. 1.

In 2009, Ford brought its new supermini, the Fiesta, over from Europe in a brave attempt to attract the attention of young Americans. It passed out 100 of the cars to influential bloggers for a free six-month test-drive, with just one condition: document your experience online, whether you love the Fiesta or hate it. Young bloggers loved the car. Young drivers? Not so much. After a brief burst of excitement, in which Ford sold more than 90,000 units over 18 months, Fiesta sales plummeted. Don’t blame Ford. Adulthood, Delayed The Great Recession changed young Americans' attitudes about what it means to be an Derek Thompson In a bid to reverse these trends, General Motors has enlisted the youth-brand consultants at MTV Scratch—a corporate cousin of the TV network responsible for Jersey Shore—to give its vehicles some 20-something edge. Perhaps. Since World War II, new cars and suburban houses have powered the economy and propelled recoveries. The Cheapest Generation
