    I just finished reading Hedy Lamarr's amazing life story (The Only Woman in the Room, by Mary Benedict). Her 1942 invention of, in my view, spread-spectrum technology was documented in her US patent, number 2, 292,387, for a frequency hopping system.

    I know – some people are going to say 'but you can do bad things!' Sure, but I'd like to look at all the good things that technology can do for us. Technology has lifted many people out of poverty, and it has enhanced the lives of so many more. It is also the cause of the biggest problem the planet currently faces—and I'd like to think that if politicians live up to their responsibilities, they will allow technology to help solve that.
