The Algore Uncertainty Principle
by L. Neil Smith
Although it's one of my favorite movies of all time, there is a certain
attitude written into Twistera 1996 Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton film about
tornado-chasers that was the first to be sold as a DVD and the last to be sold as an
HD-DVDthat never fails to annoy me.
The matter with space policynot what, but who benefits
by Jim Davidson
Space policy is a mess for the same reason that foreign policy is a
mess. The powers that control things like having hundreds of billions of dollars for
corruptly allocated contracts to aerospace contractors in the defence and space industries.
Which is why you find big campaign contributions and big lobbying fees when you look past
the drapes even a tiny bit. Look at the FEC filings for any of your congress critters if
you have doubts on this point.
TimeGoing, Going, Gone
by Cathy L.Z. Smith
At the outset let me specify that I am confining my remarks here to "books"
and the act of authorship because that is the area with which I am most conversant. I believe
this argument extends equally well to others who engage in the production of what might largely
be termed "art", and which includes song writing, painting, sculpture, and other creative
endeavors, but they are not my primary focus.
If at First You Don't Secede
by L. Neil Smith
I heard an idiot on the radio this morning proclaiming grandly that the
sovereign remedy for all the nation's problems is to impose a heavy tariff on all imported
products, so that people are economically compelled to buy only those things that are produced
in America, by Americans.
