More Suki Future Tech Coming True Today

Yes, I haven't posted here in a while but this is the more appropriate blog for this item.
Jesse Walker at reason  covers the new wave in electronic payment transaction handling.

Seems that credit and debit card processing is wide open now and retailer costs are set to drop like a homesick brick.

In the Suki series, the backdrop at least, a key element to the 2030's is low friction transactions between buyers and sellers around the world.  Like several other things, this is not the silver bullet that solves the problems of the world, just a major contributor.

I did imagine that easier communications and secure/cheep/free-ish transactions would result in more recreational travel and less labor migration.  Most folks, just from my observations, wish they could make a great living where they grew up and travel to the more cosmopolitan places at their leisure.

Afternoon Links

An element in the Suki series is secure communications, secure transactions, things like that.  One important element is having true random number generation.  Slashdot uncovered a new random number generation system that looks like it should be compact enough to use anywhere you have a computer, like in your gogs.

More Slashdot, Junctionless transistors could simplify chip making.  It does require tiny dimensions and more research in that area should make all of the working bits of devices smaller, faster and less power-hungry.  Like, again, for your gogs or if your way cool boyfriend likes to gadget up the muscle cars he builds and sells to rich people :)

A different list of Suki Series book kinks, with descriptions and cover art, here.

Beating Net Plagiarists

PC Pro has a great story on the tools used by educators to catch modern plagiarists:

How schools beat the net cheats

Posted on 16 Feb 2010 at 11:44


I think most of our students are honest,” Dr Ruth Bender tells me, as we sit in her office at Cranfield University’s School of Management.
Yet, even if the majority of her students are trustworthy, the temptation to cheat has never been greater. Resources such as so-called internet “essay mills”, Wikipedia and Google’s all-seeing eye have taken plagiarism to a new level.
Which is why we’re sitting here, waiting for my dusty undergraduate dissertation to filter through Turnitin, the industry standard in automated plagiarism-detection software, and academia’s best weapon in a technological arms race with the cheats.

Suki Tech on Slashdot's Front Page


Not exactly Suki-tech, but from the Slashdot front page, 1 TB Solid State Drive that fits on a postage stamp from Toshiba.
In the Suki fiction book series a 1TB "sliver" is described. They are used in gogs (another here) and other devices in the 2030's. It was also a plot device for John's ex distributing an extreme kinky (today's standards), pornographic video of Suki to John.
It is a tiny format, much smaller than a postage stamp, memory "stick" that is typically attached to a larger package, not unlike the way flash memory cards are sold now, but the sliver is much smaller. With 1 TB on the sliver, full immersion 3D holographic erotica can be delivered without the traceability of The Mesh. Another post about the mesh here.

Boeing's Directed Energy Weapon Destroys Sub-launched Missile

Boeing's Directed Energy Weapon Destroys Sub-launched Missile (Slashdot discussion)
Reuters Story:

The agency said in a statement the test took place at 8:44 p.m. PST (11:44 p.m. EST) on Thursday /0444 GMT on Friday) at Point Mugu's Naval Air Warfare Center-Weapons Division Sea Range off Ventura in central California.

"The Missile Defense Agency demonstrated the potential use of directed energy to defend against ballistic missiles when the Airborne Laser Testbed (ALTB) successfully destroyed a boosting ballistic missile" the agency said.

The high-powered Airborne Laser system is being developed by Boeing Co., the prime contractor, and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

Boeing produces the airframe, a modified 747 jumbo jet, while Northrop Grumman supplies the higher-energy laser and Lockheed Martin is developing the beam and fire control systems.

Bill Nye Dresses-Up in the Flag for Global Warming

Bill Nye 'The Science Guy': Denying Climate Change 'Unpatriotic,' 'Inappropriate' 
[T]here's more energy in the atmosphere and this is stirring things up,” Nye said. “If you want to get serious about it, these guys claiming that the snow in Washington disproves climate change are almost unpatriotic. It's really, they're denying science. So they're very happy to have the weather forecast be accurate within a few hours, but they're displeased or un-enchanted by predictions of the world getting warmer. It's really, it shakes me up.”

Google Broadband Move is Latest Case of Google Creep



Google Feb. 11 said it will build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in some locations across the U.S., hurtling Internet data at speeds of 1 gigabit per second, or more than 100 times faster than most residential broadband connections.
Google will offer this service to anywhere from 50,000 people to 500,000 people. Why would a search engine do this?
Because Google is not just a search engine anymore. It the premier proprietor of Web services and the sooner everyone acknowledges this, the easier it will be to grok Google.

Apple iPad Built For Maximum Profit, Theorizes iSuppli

Oh, how terrible.  Profit?  Who would hear of it in pleasant company!

Apple's iPad tablet PC underwent a virtual teardown by research firm iSuppli, which surmises that the device will offer a sizable profit for the tech company. The mid-range iPad could cost around $287.15 to build, but will retail for $729. A Credit Suisse analyst suggested in an earlier research note that Apple may be "nimble" on pricing for the iPad if consumers don’t immediately adopt the device in large numbers upon its release in two months. Apple CEO Steve Jobs was recently seen meeting with executives from The New York Times to demonstrate the iPad's abilities and media-display potential.

Ancient Greenland Gene Map Has a Surprise



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature.

Suki's Morning Links

Good Morning World!
Google's new thingie coming under geek criticism:


CNET identifies a central obstacle Buzz will have to overcome to gain traction: "The problem, however, will be the increasing backlash Google is seeing from the general public over how much data the company already controls on their online habits."
Sorry, there is no freaking way that is a general public backlash.  It is a geek, but in the know geek, objection.  Most don't give a care or they are unaware.
PC World coverage


I'm typing this on a netbook with no hard drive, not using a chip from Intel or AMD, and powered by AA batteries. Eight rechargeable AAs, to be precise, in a bank of cells right where a Li-Ion battery would sit in a conventional laptop. The batteries charge in place, too (regulation prevents overcharging) meaning that the power cord is a simple three-prong-to-cloverleaf cord, no wall-wart required. It's the EduBookfrom Xcore (see that page for some photos of the internals, too), and it's a cool concept. Despite some warts, it's one of the most interesting things I ran into on the CES show floor last month (Xcore's Michael Barnes kindly supplied the laptop, straight from the display case). Read on for my review

Water on Enceladus
"Scientists working on the Cassini space mission have found negatively charged water ions in the ice plume of Enceladus. Their findings, based on analysis from data taken in plume fly-throughs in 2008 and reported in the journal Icarus, provide evidence for the presence of liquid water, which suggests the ingredients for life inside the icy moon. The Cassini plasma spectrometer, used to gather this data, also found other species of negatively charged ions including hydrocarbons."

Amazon has acquired Touchco, a start-up company developed by NYU's Media Research Lab that specializes in touch screen technology, hinting that a touch-screen Kindle e-reader may be in the works. Neither side has disclosed the terms of the deal.
Touchco uses a technology known as "Force Sensitive Resistance" that has been in place since 1979, said Ken Perlin, NYU professor of computer science and co-founder of Touchco.
The technology allows "variations in pressure on a thin-sheet material to be converted into varying electrical conductance," Perlin said. The Touchco team developed a method, known as Interpolating Force Sensitive Resistance, that can distinguish between the different pressures recorded.

Sorry for neglecting this blog so much. The recent posts haven't had much besides book news.

Over at the other blog, I posted some new Snowpocalypse news, Super Bowl discussions, that Audi Green Police ad and bits of this and that.  With lovely illustrations, of course ;)

Suki I Available in Paperback!


Suki I

The Story of Suki

By John Tagliaferro, Suki, Danielle Dicamello, Derek Walker
Use discount code BJK9AWCW at CreateSpace.Com/3427759 to pay only $8.69 ($3.00 off the list price). 

Suki is an attractive, single young professional Libertarian, performing advanced technology research and looking for a bright, nice, acceptable boyfriend. Most of the time she works in her mother's party planning office as Project Manager/Executive Secretary and all-around technology administrator.

Suki has an advanced education by 2030's standards, but it is not much more advanced that the top 25% of her peers from high school who also earned PhDs. She started college early, like many of her high school classmates.

She has experimented with many things, common for a woman of her time, for most anybody of her age, and she is growing out of that.

John is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, former defense contractor, current classic car creator and "small L libertarian." He has a comfortable condominium, a nice one-man-operation garage, one true best friend and never seems to meet a stranger.

He is a bit of a solitary man. After his son became a military lawyer and "left the nest", John started tutoring subjects that he had taught his son and had tutored while he was in college, as a productive distraction from his business. It is also something he can do one-on-one, rather than having to deal with large groups.

John prefers women his own age or older and would be thrilled if he finds a woman who just wants to be nice to him.

Atlas Shrugged is now more popular abroad than in the USA and Suki reads it twice per year.

The USA is recovering from the hyperinflation of the early part of the century. The rest of the world is rapidly adopting the free market and the rule of law.

Suki: Fan Fiction available in Paperback!

Hey y'all!  The only fiction I ever wrote for publication is published!  John put Sarah's story and mine into one paperback.

From the online store:


Suki: Fan Fiction

Works by Suki and Sarah

By Sarah J Jane, Suki Tagliaferro
Order for only $6.69 with discount code HMAMMG59 at CreateSpace.Com/3428625 ($2.00 off list price). 

Two people who helped a great deal on the Suki series, Suki and Sarah, followed up with stories on their own. They stick close to the series and are true to the characters.

Sarah's work comes first in the alternate timeline. It begins in Sammy's On The Beach, near Eglin Air Force Base. In Suki IV, John and Suki's assigned security team thwarts a kidnapping attempt on the couple. Sara's story imagines the kidnapping as successful and tells the story of how profiteers for Iranian customers exploit the couple, body and mind, for their own gain.

Suki's work follows the timeline set by Sarah, after the couple is liberated. She examines the couple's mental and spiritual recovery from their brutal captivity and government debriefing.

John's son, Major Johanathan Tagliaferro (Tag the JAG) is assigned as the US Army legal liaison to an Israeli Defense Forces Commando unit. The troops are spearheading the Iranian invasion with almost every country in the region following them. Tag is relatively safe in the headquarters with the commanding General, deep in Iranian territory.

John and Suki are tasked with defeating Iranian systems that are similar to what they have worked on in the past.

The couple becomes a real team and is able to still have valuable rest and relaxation during most of the vacation.
