Four short links
  1. The Best Way to Predict the Future is to Create It. But Is It Already Too Late? (Alan Kay) — Virtually everybody in the computing science has almost no sense of human history and context of where we are and where we are going. So, I think of much of the stuff that has been done as inverse vandalism. Inverse vandalism is making things just because you can. Every sentence is a cracker. (via Daniel G. Siegel)
  2. Trying to Make Powerful, Low-cost LIDAR (Ars Technica) — a good intro to the tech and competition in the space.
