Items of Interest (Stross on the Future, Ocean Mining, Reading Round-Up)

Recently of interest: Accelerando author Charles Stross's extrapolation of the future of computer technology (with a focus on gaming) from what he terms a "laughable conservative" set of assumptions in a keynote address at the 2009 LOGIN conference in Seattle (the text of which is available on his site); a recent piece in The Economist on the state of ocean mining, another of those ideas that seemed likely to go much further back in the 1970s (indeed, such expectations played a role in the development of international maritime law in that period); and the latest Reading Radar Weekly Round-Up from the folks over at The New Security Beat.
