GENERATION OF GREATNESS Our young people, for the most part — unless they are geniuses — after a very short time in college give up any hope of being individually great. They plan, instead, to be good. They plan to be effective, They plan to do their job. They plan to take their healthy place in the community. We might say that today it takes a genius to come out great, and a great man, a merely great man, cannot survive. It has become our habit, therefore, to think that the age of greatness has passed, that the age of the great man is gone, that this is the day of group research, that this is the day of community progress. Yet the very essence of democracy is the absolute faith that while people must cooperate, the first function of democracy, its peculiar gift, is to develop each individual into everything that he might be. But I submit to you that when in each man the dream of personal greatness dies, democracy loses the real source of its future strength. –1957 . . .

Here’s a weird mix of doing some football photography for my oldest child’s team and taking part in some odd photography assignments that are part of the course I’m co-teaching at VCU. There was enough random photos going on that I started a separate instagram account for it. I also managed to get blocked by instagram for using hashtags in a way that seemed robotic. That was eventually overturned but did remind me how much I dislike the service.

Rage against the machine: self-driving cars attacked by angry Californians | Technology | The Guardian The two human-on-robot assaults are not the first time San Franciscans have fought back – physically – against robots. In December, the local SPCA animal shelter removed its 400lb Knightscope security robot from the streets around its building amid backlash from residents and the homeless population who complained the robot was harassing them. While most residents simply complained about the robot’s presence, one person reportedly “put a tarp over it, knocked it over and put barbecue sauce on all the sensors”.
