First Peter Ueberroth spammed me for his ill fated campaign. Now Arianna Huffington is spamming me. Sorry to be filling up a blog that should be full of silly stories and geekishness with politics, but some things just get to me!
I'm pretty sure that at some point, my email address has been associated with my registration on the voter rolls because I've had a number of candidates email me for their campaign in my district, which, along with calling my phone number and leaving automated messages, makes my selection process easier by letting me remove them from contention...
But it's hard to not vote for somebody when their spam list isn't even properly constructed, such that they are spamming people who don't even live in their district.
As a geek and engineer, I love disruptive technologies. Disruptive technologies are what makes being
an engineer worthwhile, at least for me, because they are the ones that change society forever. That,
and often the repercussions are quite interesting. Nobody thinks of the wild and crazy things that will
happen because of technology until much later.
Lately, I realized just how interesting of a disruptive technology digital cameras were.
