At issue is some new networking code that popped up in what was hoped to be the final version of Linux 4.3.”‘targeting’ kids, but they’re getting splashed in the backwash of behavioral messaging.Figure for every teen swigging alcopops and energy drinks in wannabe style, there’s another buying into the beer-n-babes positioning, taking cues from this Heineken ‘hiney’ messaging on how to treat, view and ogle females.”My Thoughts On Sex Robots by Dan Jubelirer (published on Amplify Jan 12, 2010) On last nights’ show, Colbert covered the invention of a sex robot that has touch sensors and the ability to download different personalities.Dan’s insightful, very REAL questions about objectification, sexuality, and futuristic digital spheres strikes the perfect humorous vs.heavy-handed tone to start thinking about where we’re headed and more importantly…why.Some show humanity ascending with hope and promise, others pose tough ethical quandries and feel like we’re even devolving in some ways…
From tacky Stepford-style sexism and objectification weirdness to the brilliance of youth innovation and the first ever annual National Robotics Week …it’s pretty easy to see how robotics and technology past, present and future are making an impact, for better AND for worse.
