Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, and I like your drawing attention to the question of purpose vs. power relations across a wide range of purposes.

I'd like to see more attention given to the design of systems of technologies and law that could promote freedom and oppose oppression in a world with ubiquitous surveillance capabilities. If there is no vision of this sort, the next few turns of Moore's law could lead to quite unpleasant results.

Words and ideas I offer here may be used freely and without attribution.
