No news, just tech’ views…

Like staring into a dark room, you know nothing of whether what lies within is going to be a surprise or a total absence of anything, surprise or otherwise. The last few weeks have not been a surprise, but they have been an absence rest, leisure and mental respite. These past two days in particular have been an absence of notable technology news, which is unusual…

Yes, there are those who will just burp out whatever is hitting the tech’ news wires, but that’s not what I do.

So for me at least, there’s been no news behind the news.

No mentionable technology trends converging. No ‘out there’ ideas, breaking new ground.

No speculation, reorganization, deregulation, monetization, let alone talk of consolidation, decentralization and commoditization.

Sure, I’ve got some of the loftier, meatier, multi-tiered, manifold and many-faceted articles in the pipeline.

But that’s for then, and this is now.

Maybe you’ve got an idea for a story?

If you’ve got something you’d like me to ruminate, investigate, speculate upon, comment on or just tell you whether it’s right-on or dead wrong, then let me know!

No news today…

How about John Cramer’s claims that he wants to send a signal back in time. Sounds bizarre and he’s come up with an equally bizarre name for the phenomenon

Quantum retrocausality

Sounds like bunk to me, but you never know. DARPA however, the funding agency for controversial conjectures agrees and is not going to fund the necessary research. That’s bizarre in itself, of course, because being able to send a signal back in time would revolutionize war, as well as giving you a chance to win tomorrow’s lottery yesterday.

Well, you know me, always burping out random sci-tech news


I either read about this guy, or some other guy doing much the same thing years ago.

My question is: why has he not already got confirmation of success or failure already?

Surely, the absence of a signal would mean any future attempt is a sign of failure?

Or maybe he had in mind sending a signal in old-school Morse Code to some frontier outpost in 18th century America to have a letter delivered on a specific date?

I’m thinking about Back to the Future III here.

For me, time travel is a fascinating subject, and it’s something I’ve given thought to before now…
