Regulate This! Time to subject algorithms to our laws

I think this article would have benefitted greatly if at the start you had defined what you considered an "algorithm" to be. Without this, especially given your apparent definition differs from what most programmers would use (I think, I can't be sure because you didn't give a definition), it isn't really possible to give any value to the subsequent points made about them.

By the end of the article I got the feeling you could have just replaced the word "algorithm" with "scary thing".
