...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes: 


"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"

ACCOUNTABILITY
DRONE WARFARE PERFORMED OVER DIGITAL DISTANCES
No survivors=no witnesses.Did the drone do it?or its driver?
Same with autonomous vehicles.Once no human sits as safeguard
will the program be held accountable?Or the programmer?
For computer failure-in an autonomous vehicle/drone/factory-
where does responsibility lay?For hackers  are persecuted but CIA/FBI/NSA not.
Wikileaks shares truth bombs,but Freedom of Information Act is gutted
We are past the post-modern equivalence of human and machine.
Robots can now fulfill most of our human work.Do we rest with a guaranteed income?
or will we "make jobs"to make up for the dislocation of our work force?
Robots write poetry,too.Some better than human authors.
So when do we hand the keys over to our A I Masters?

and admit that the Renaissance has been outsourced?
