Robots and UFOs



We are not the only avatars of humanity. Once our computing machines achieved self-consciousness, they became part of this design.

~Dan Simmons, Endymion



At bottom, robotics is about us. It is the discipline of emulating our lives, of wondering how we work.

March 19: Executed Criminals’ Last Words (Law and Lawyers)

March 19
Executed Criminals’ Last Words



Lord have mercy on us. All people before me, take warning by me.

~John Bell

John Bell, a 14-year-old child, was sentenced to hang in 1831 as public entertainment, which was a tradition in Britain for hundreds of years. Such hangings were both a violent display of state power and a cheap family outing. Before the Children’s Act of 1908, it was still legal for a child to be tried in an adult court, where execution was possible. A penniless street urchin who murdered a 13-year-old boy for nine shillings, John Bell became the last person under 16 to be executed in Britain. He was also the youngest, at the age of 14, to ever be executed at Maidstone Prison, where 5,000 people heard his last words.


Keep the faith and rock on.

~Richard Zeitvogel, who spent 22 of his 40 years in various Missouri prisons for offenses ranging from armed robbery to rape. These crimes earned him his initial prison sentence at the tender age of 18, which was then extended to life when he murdered an inmate, but his death sentence came from killing a second prison inmate while still serving time for the first murder. Zeitvogel confessed to this second murder, hoping to be placed on death row with his friend and suspected lover Frank J. Guinan. Guinan had acted as Zeitvogel’s accomplice in the first of his two murders. Zeitvogel got his wish, was indeed placed on death row, and was executed by lethal injection on December 11, 1996.

First Amendment



Now the Supreme Court referred to the right to speak openly of violent action and revolution in broad terms:

[Our] decisions have fashioned the principle that the constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not allow a State to forbid or proscribe advocacy of the use of force or law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or cause such action.

~Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444, 447 (1969)



The demands of free speech in a democratic society as well as the interest in national security are better served by candid and informed weighing of the competing interests, within the confines of the judicial process.

~Justice Frankfurter, Dennis v. United States, 341 U.S. 494, 524-25 (1951) (concurring opinion)

Holy Bible


Then the eleven followers went to

The Galilean mountain Jesus had


Instructed them to go to. When they saw

Him there, they worshiped him; but some had doubts.

Then Jesus came to them and said this: “All


Authority in heaven and on earth

Is granted me. So go and make disciples

Of all the nations, baptizing them in


The name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

And teaching them to follow all that I’ve

Commanded you. And surely I’m your friend


Always, even until the age’s end.”

~Matthew 28:16-20

Lawyers, Preachers, and Tomtits Eggs, there are more of them hatch’d than come to perfection.

~Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanack, 1734, in Papers of Benjamin Franklin 1:354 (Leonard W. Labaree ed. 1959)



Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.

March 15: Risk

March 15

Throughout my business life I have always tried to keep on top of costs and protect the downside risk as much as possible.
~Richard Branson. Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson (born 1950) is an English business mogul, best known for his Virgin Group of more than 400 companies.

It’s actually a relatively small number of people that really are those risk takers, and a relatively small number of people that end up really having an impact on the world.
