America In 2013

“It is getting to the point where the mark of international distinction and service to humanity is no longer the Nobel Peace Prize, but an espionage indictment from the US Department of Justice,” Julian Assange – 2013

Now the next is 18:00 long. About 4:00 into it the talk starts getting interesting. There is a lot in her speech that I disagree with. For instance I have heard Thomas Edison patented under his own name all the inventions his staff had done. (In much the same way Newton used his position to corner the market on physics. Or Einstein using the court to get all the prestige while his wife, the real mathematician, got all the money.) Not that it is much better now. Apparently now you’ll be lucky to see the actual inventors name. Instead what you’ll get are all the management names. Then there is the stuff about SpaceX inventing the heat shields. I am pretty sure I have seen her or Elon say they heard about these shields and went directly to the source who had done the research. Maybe in a Thomas Edison way SpaceX is responsible.
