Philosophy and Technology links

If I remember correctly it was the Mermaid's suggestion to have some "Philosophy and…" threads where one could assemble links to internet resources, references to books, media and such. And just recently she mentioned the idea of a Philosophy and Technology thread.

Around minute 34 in the present talk Bratton talks about AI and bypasses the question of the Turing test as unimportant, though in an interesting twist. The talk is as regards Geo-politics, and has many implications on how we view the interaction between politics (the state) and technology, with issues of address, location, privacy etc. being raised throughout it.

...Anyway, here is Bratton's talk: "The Black Stack"

So let's see how this goes!
