Last Friday, I had a great debate with a friend of mine, Bill Hammer. His position was that having a huge military budget did nothing but bury the economy. I countered that the military, in many ways, is the equivalent of the government investing funds in the development of new technologies and mass production. I would add that, in the business of ‘kill or be killed', the stakes are no higher when it comes to a need for quality and productivity.
(Please don't write me ‘war mongerer' death threats with this post. I am absolutely micca dicendu chì u prezzu di a tecnulugia è di a pruduzzioni di massa vale a pena di sparghje sangue.)
With all that said, check out Gizmodo's article on droni di marketing senza pilotu. Influence and automation! Of course, I'm not sure that this is a win for consumers. The last thing I want is a fly by buzzing my bluetooth PDA telling me that deodorant is on sale the next block over.
Forse Bill hà avutu un puntu ...
