Original Post from Thomas Frey:

This is ingenious and scary all at the same time. Using a technique called DNA phenotyping, it’s now possible to digitally sketch a person’s face based on DNA fragments left behind on litter.

An interesting read. I admit I'd not thought about the impact on the disabled. This ongoing to be great.

The season 1 finale of The Flash achieved truly Moffat-like levels of wallbangery. I mean, this show has always played fast and loose with science, and at this point I accept that's just part of the show; but this time around it's like they were actively going out of their way to have every single plot point be as non-sensical as possible, even just from the standpoint of internal consistency. I think the writers setup stakes they weren't willing to follow through on, then tried for a clever twist ending they weren't clever enough to pull off. There was more wrong with the episode than that, but it's just not even worth getting into. The finale was such a disappointing failure that I'm most likely just done with this show. I don't even care where they go with it next season at this point.

"No one should be asking what we’re going to do if computers take our jobs.

"We should all be asking what we get to do once freed from them."

The beginning of the end of labor as we know it is starting. This will fundamentally disrupt our existing socioeconomic system. Whether this leads to dystopia or utopia rests largely in the hands of politicians.

Yeah. I'm sure they'll make the right decisions.

Rosewood looks like yet another "white male specialist partners with female (supermodel) cop" show, except... Wait, the male specialist isn't white!? They can't do that!

Look out iZombie, looks like you might not be the only progressive police procedural next year.
