Kevin Poulson over at Danger Room discusses state anxieties around hobbyist drones and geofencing practices in consumer drone firmware:
The White House geofence is only the second one that isn’t centered on an airport, according to Perry—the first was Tiananmen Square. It won’t be the last. Now that the company has perfected the ability to erect geofences at will, the sky’s the limit—or, more accurately, the skies are limited. DJI is preparing an update that will increase the number of airport no fly zones from 710 to 10,000, and prevent users from flying across some national borders—a reaction to the recent discovery that drug smugglers are trying to use drones to fly small loads of meth from Mexico into the US.
The Society for Radical Geography, Spatial Theory, and Everyday Life is happy to announce that the schedule for our 2015 symposium, “Inhabiting Containment,” is now available. Check out the exciting lineup we have this year here, including a keynote from Dr. Rashad Shabazz of the University of Vermont.
Registration is also now open for the symposium. As always, registration is completely free, and the symposium is open to everyone. The symposium will be held in Troy Moore Library at Georgia State University (25 Park Place, room 2343). See you on February 27th!
