I like to pretend there’s a masked army of hackers constantly causing all of the problems with my technology. Playstation controller battery dead? Must have been hackers. Automatic door into grocery store out of order? Hackers!

I love the idea that there is a billion dollar game completely centered around the idea of killing birds and pigs. Say what you will about Halo, but at least it’s obviously fictional. I’m surprised we haven’t seen more news reports of 8-year-olds throwing birds into walls. Good thing they’re hard to catch, I guess.
This has been a recurring problem at many jobs I’ve held. I understand the predicament of the I.T. department. How can they judge my knowledge of a computer? How can they allow different computer setups when disk images are so much simpler? Still, when I see it being an issue for people who are essentially teaching I.T. skills, then I have to wonder if perhaps there is a better way? Anyone have one?
When in doubt on how to solve a problem, devour someone. There’s probably no better advice for a young person today. There’s probably a business self-help book in there somewhere.
High minded issues like net neutrality never are issues to most people until they affect their leisure time, or wallets. It will be interesting to see where this issue eventually develops, and if it enters the general conscience as an issue before it’s finally settled. Because as of now, it certainly isn’t there.
