In reply to Katherine Noyes
I don't remember who said it, or exactly how it is phrased, but there's a quote out there, something like, "Anything built by a (wo)man can be understood and taken apart by a (wo)man)."

And, from John F. Kennedy:
"There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction."

To put a little fear into the hearts of all you who are basking in a sense of false security:

There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING MAGIC about the Linux and UNIX operating systems which conveys upon them greater security than any other operating system.

The magic stopped when Merlin died.

If the FAA approved the use of autonomous drones as passenger "air taxis" for short commutes, how interested would you be in riding in them?
Very -- too much of my life is wasted in clogged traffic.
Not interested -- even if they were safe, they would be ridiculously expensive.
I'm looking forward to them -- smart machines will save human lives.
I'm skeptical -- but if they proved reasonably safe, I'd get on board.
I'd use them -- human pilots could take over remotely if necessary.
No way -- I would want a human on board to take over in an emergency.
