for me it comes down to human rights

i think we have the right to know, if we choose, exactly what the technology is doing and how

so closed systems like windows and mac, i feel they abuse my rights and insult my intelligence

i give many thanks to the creators of open source operating systems and applications, without them i may not even be aware that i have rights :)

When I read these news about #drones, #Watchbird by Robert #Sheckley flashes in my head.

Over the town, the watchbird soared in a long, lazy curve. Its aluminum hide glistened in the morning sun, and dots of light danced on its stiff wings. Silently it flew. Silently, but with all senses functioning. Built-in kinesthetics told the watchbird where it was, and held it in a long search curve. Its eyes and ears operated as one unit, searching, seeking.
