That wasn't on the power supplies of a rather fetching solar related beast was it? Data centres, or machine rooms as I prefer to call them, are not as clean as you might expect.

Exactly what is the difference between these and drones other than nomenclature? For example the USSR/Russian P-700/Granit has had a swarm mode for ages and is far from unique in that. Almost all missiles are fire and forget, requiring no intervention other than the initial button push but they are somehow not drones and so not scary. Lots can be assigned to engage targets of opportunity. Some can loiter in an area awaiting orders or for the enemy to unwisely switch on some electronics Yet others lurk scanning the area for target matches and pounce when they think they have found one. Why is any of this behavior less problematic than an autonomous UCV?
Yep, but without all of the high priests preening and primping it into glorious life.
Just a continuation of the inexorable raising of the level of the presented interfaces in all hardware and software systems over time. Thus reducing in the skills and the number of people required to get any given system to perform anything like what might be required. In other words, reducing the cost of providing those systems by reducing the required skills and numbers of people needed to implement them. Or just Capitalism doing it's thing.
Perhaps Thomas J Watson legendary quote, "I think there is a world market for about five computers" may not be too far out.

The basis of human behavior that Goodhart's law encapsulates is both profound and seemingly beyond the wit of anyone who gets into a position of power and influence. Thus we have a blossoming of inappropriate targets and measures in all walks of life, none of which produce the results that their originators where hoping for.
I guess you could also say that it's kind of a way of turning correlation into causation but not in the way that you might have expected.
Mines the one with all of the school league tables in the pockets...
Well if you were, lets say, interested in repatriating manufacturing of high tech goods back to the homeland, then casting serious doubts over the integrity of overseas manufactured goods might not be a bad move. It might even be true but whether it is or it isn't is not really that important if your main objective is playing out in the minds of your own people.
I guess the problem of having a powerful laser satellite with a targeting system that can spot very small chucks of space debris and that can point said laser and hit them long enough to either directly or indirectly de-orbit them is that, well, they might be used for something else entirely...
So, the solution to the problem concerning node.js of managing the vast amounts of package dependencies, resulting code is being loaded from all over the internet, therefore meaning you don't know what code is running on your production system at any given time, is to make the process of loading this code invisible to the developers of said production system. Either I'm not properly understanding the problem or this solution sucks.
In my experience specific clearances are linked to your role and most certainly get revoked once you leave that role. Generic clearance levels (currently SC, DV etc in the UK) don't and can be transferred between roles but these don't function as an 'all areas access', just a sort of indication that this chap is ok and you don't have to be too careful around them. They are also time limited.
From the letter, "I would like to take this opportunity to also share with the Committee the outcome of out further analysis of the Countries affected by Professor Kogan's app." Any affect was only possible because Farcebook already has this data and that they shared it with all and sundry via their API. To single out Prof Kogan in this way is classic scapegoating and misdirection. Farcebook still have that data (and more) and can do with it what they wish. Are you sure it's just for slinging ads?
Oh and also, isn't it the individuals in these countries that have really been affected. What communication and apology will Farcebook make to these people.
