I’ve picked up some new twitter followers recently – *waves* – so I thought I’d do a quick recap of some of my previous blog posts that I’ve particularly enjoyed writing.
In common with most folks I have a few areas of interest that I like to write about so I’m going to group these under a few topic headings.
I hope you enjoy.
- With virtual reality headsets and real-time streaming we’re all soon going to find out what it’s like to be in the middle of remote news stories as they happen
- How the first first time your white-collar job might be noticeably impacted by AI might be via something like Slack
- How robots and AIs will be taking on all of our jobs (and a link what some say is the solution – universal basic income)
- A potential method for using invisible reputation techniques to weed out internet trolls (perhaps not as appealing as it sounds)
- On the past, present and future of being part of the political class
- How we never talk enough about risk when making political decisions
- Should we be using statistical analysis of potential re-offending to decide on how long prison sentences should be?
- Thoughts about electronic voting and how opposing groups should come together and talk
- Can our voluntarily published online actions be used instead of voting (a tongue-in-cheek article)
- What I would like to see from digital democracy in the UK
- Delegated democracy is a very interesting idea
- Comparing the non-accessible subconscious mind to the non-FOI-able parts of government (pretentious but a real favourite)
- Free speech and discrimination against atheists
- Religious specific laws (or exemptions to laws) in the UK
- Thinking about how evolution fits in with consciousness and free will (my opinions on this have subsequently clarified a lot after taking a course on compatibilism – which I now finally understand!)
- Following the world-wide spread of legal decisions to allow gay marriage how long before legal polyamorous relationships become mainstream
- How I like to think about myself – someone whose best talent is collaboration superpowers
