A bloody path has been chosen… The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs. The Great War fought by the few is coming… All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people. In the end, the sun will fall… The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same. For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

Interesting individual but terrible book.
Heartbeat of Struggle: The Revolutionary Life of Yuri Kochiyama - Diane C. Fujino

I had never heard of Kochiyama until after her death in 2014. The obituarious made me realize that yet again, there was a part of history that I was not familiar with and should learn more about. It seemed like it would be a good time to read up more about a woman who held Malcolm X as he died and had once been interned in the Japanese internment camps. Who was this Japanese-American activist who lived in Harlem and would eventually praise Osama bin Laden?

 

The book is a look at her life and work. I'm not going to rehash it here because honestly while the subject is certainly deserving of an in-depth look this text is definitely not it. There is simply too much information (for example, much of the details about her children and family could have been reduced) that is also presented in perhaps a much too positive manner.

 

For example, when Kochiyama meets Malcolm X (and as a common happening), we really only know about the meeting/conversation/etc. from Kochiyama's POV. The author occasionally extrapolates and assumes too much without supporting quotes or information. I understand that it's a biography and the author has reasons to portray the subject as she does, but I couldn't help but be a bit skeptical about the author perhaps assuming how others perceived Kochiyama. I'm not saying that author Fujino is lying or made up any of the material, but having other supporting quotations or sources within the text would have been super helpful.

 

I really wanted to stick with it because I wanted to see how the Kochiyama could eventually get to the point where she'd praise bin Laden (which I only knew after I purchased this book and it came to light via a Google Doodle). While the reader can probably see this path from the book and her life, Fujino only really touches upon this in the Epilogue (bin Laden doesn't show up in the glossary either).

 

Kochiyama sounds like an interesting person and I'd be curious to know what she might have said about the banning of the movement of Muslims and the citation of the Japanese internment camps. However I would have to be skeptical about the picture Fujino paints and hope that others will take up her story as one to write about as well. I regret buying this and would urge a reader to try to borrow it from the library or buy it used. At the very least I'd recommend Googling her and looking up some of the interviews and commentary about her and learn a bit of history that's probably not taught unless it's in very specific circles.

People are not Google’s 'Customers' or Even Google’s 'Users, but Its Feudal Livestock: “The Epic Struggle of the Internet of Things” by Bruce Sterling
The Epic Struggle of the Internet of Things - Bruce Sterling

“An IoT is not a consumer society. It’s a materialized network society. It’s like Google or Facebook writ large on the landscape. Google and Facebook don’t have ‘users’ or ‘customers’. Instead, they have participants under machine surveillance, whose activities are algorithmically combined with Big Data silos.”

 

In “The Epic Struggle of the Internet of Things” by Bruce Sterling.

 

Imagine the following creepy scenario.

 

Picture yourself doing the number 2 on your recently bought high tech throne. Unfortunately your next door neighbour is a black-hat hacker. Do you want him to hack into your home system and flush your toilet while you're on it? With our current batch of politicians I can guarantee that's what will happen. I can't see them stepping up to the plate. We all also know that when it comes to safety, leaving self-regulation to the end-user doesn’t seem to work.  We all know what happened with credit cards; we all know what's still happening with customer data; it's clear as water it's not going to work for the IoT. What's wrong with this picture? Everyone who works in IT knows that if one wants to add security to a product, it's going to cost big money.  Making a gadget a safer product adds to the cost of it, and that just doesn’t work in this day and age. For IoT to become widespread we need cheap, but also safer products, and I don’t see that happening in my life time.

 

If you're into IoT and IT stuff in general, read on.

THE BEAUTIFUL STRUGGLE by Ta-Nehisi Coates
The Beautiful Struggle: A Memoir Reprint edition by Coates, Ta-Nehisi (2009) Paperback - Ta-Nehisi Coates
  Ta'Nehisi Coates tells of his life in Baltimore growing up with his family in the ghetto. His father had been a member of the Black Panthers and raised his children to get knowledge by reading what most people did not know existed. I did not always understand what Ta'Nehisi was saying but I understood what his father was teaching him and his siblings. I also liked the history that we do not get in school. An interesting read.
