Yes, we must be careful as to what conspiracies we believe. Take everything with a grain of salt from the conspiracy angle. But, follow the money. Also, look for independent sources for corroboration of facts.
"Change of society is a tough issue..... free or reasonable access to information that is of a no private nature... like what is provided by librarys or regulatory angencies...general pubic informaton."
I agree. It's hard to know what is truth when everything we are told has a spin. As a result, mis information is a hard thing to combat.
Examples are when large companies spend money to propaget lies. Like the commercials that state 'the body can't tell the difference between High Fructose and sugar"
The taste buds can[t, but the liver takes on 6 times as much toxins for every molecule of high fructose.
Be aware who benefits from the information that is being disseminated.
With an older stule POTS line, a caller calling into a remote location can issue a security code to identify themselves. The remote location can then hang up and call them back.
Caller ID can be spoofed so that is not entirely reliable. But, to hack into a Pots network when a remote location has initiated a call is a lot harder to do than to reroute and re broadcast an internet data stream.
Redundancy for cloud services is a good point. There will be geographically hit areas affected by storms etc. The ability for a redundant server in a nearby and unaffected area may be able to keep srvices alive if there is not oversubscription of communications lines. Having electricity helps too.
Jon, great job ... the week seemed to fly by ... (relativity I suppose) ... I'm glad you are socially and environmentally aware and share your concerns ... we need more of that in the engineering community
POTS vs cloud service: It will be instructive to examine the system failures in Moore Okl after the EF5 tornado took out all the above ground infrastructure. Did the wired POTS lines survive? Will business have no connectivity thru the cloud for many weeks?

what do i need to do if i am sending post but it doesn't work, they are asking for the subject and once I did it still the same process, it does not post the message. this is what i am experiencing in the archived.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
