The computer is the liar that always tells the truth. If you believe the lie—that what the computer does is beyond human comprehension, that its power exceeds its use value—then you are doomed to be its slave.

Time-Lapse Thing of the Day: Nate Bolt recently traveled from San Francisco to Paris aboard an Air France flight, snapping nearly 2,500 photos along the way to stitch together into a two-minute time-lapse summary of his flight (which included a Northern Lights flyover).

As for the photos supposedly captured during takeoff and landing, Bolt assures viewers that they “are all computer models and totally rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times which the FAA prohibits them.”
