Is Reality Winner “One of Us?” by William Sims Bainbridge

Amidst the raging chaos in modern advanced nations, aggravated or rendered more visible by emerging technologies, an occasional individual person stands out, now notably Reality Winner.  Her Wikipedia page begins: “Reality Leigh Winner (born December 1991) is an American intelligence specialist employed by Pluribus International Corporation. Winner was arrested on June 3, 2017, on suspicion of leaking an intelligence report about Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections to the news website The Intercept. The report sug...

On Voter Fraud, Immigration, and Economic Disparity by David Brin

== The New “Voter Fraud” Commission ==

As usual, Democrats are right to complain… and they are doing it all wrong.

President Trump declared a commission aimed at justifying his unfounded voter fraud claims.  (“Millions cast illegal ballots, giving Hillary Clinton her huge popular vote margin.”) But instead of appointing a blue-ribbon, bipartisan committee of nationally respected sages, the commission will be spearheaded by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, often tied to white ...

Don’t Impeach! Plus appraising GOP proposed legislation—and why is he really in Saudi Arabia? by David Brin

I had prepped a missive appraising GOP legislative proposals… but it seems we must always lead with the latest, daily crises. With some Republicans already murmuring about impeachment and getting all moony-eyed toward the notion of “President Pence,” let me repeat what I’ve said for a year now.

A Process of Transformation by William Sims Bainbridge

Whether by coincidence or some mysterious cosmic force, May 2017 saw the publication of two books I wrote about the tension and possible partnership between religion and science.  The first was a science fiction novel titled Revival, and the second, a science research monograph titled Dynamic Secularization.  Both were written from the perspective of the radical revolution caused by information technology and computer science, and both postulated that we stand at a turning point in history.  Both also conceptualized human cult...

What’s new in science & tech? by David Brin

Okay, let’s turn to the side of civilization that is doing best. Doing spectacularly well in fact, despite a relentless campaign to undermine science. Just today—as I type this, in fact—I am in a conference call as a member of the advisory council of The Planetary Society, hearing reports about how TPS - under Bill Nye’s charismatic leadership - has seen a turnaround, with increasing membership and a social media following that has crested above a million! Why? Because people are noticing how many wondrous accomplishm...

Will we continue an Enlightenment Civilization… or return to Feudalism? by David Brin

Seventy years of Pax Americana and a rising enlightenment civilization, based on science and fact and at least somewhat-mature argument, were never easy to maintain. Another seventy and we’d likely stabilize into something truly amazing and grownup—perhaps able to solve the Fermi Paradox, by heading out into the galaxy.

Solving problems: Energy, Climate and Remaking the Planet by David Brin
