When I'm riding my motorcycle through traffic, the smell of MJ from some cars is really obvious, you can smell it some 40-50 yards behind. If you smoke it a lot, as with tobacco, I bet your car will smell of it whether you're smoking at the time or not. So, I'm inclined to believe this, though I expect pinpointing the target would be more difficult from a car where you're not so exposed to the passing air.
Microsoft may have changed, but they're still there to make money, and screw over Linux. They keep on trying on a new sheepskin coat every few months, but deep down there's still a big, bad, capitalist wolf after Linux's FUD and guts. How much do you think MS would care if there was a 'mysterious' intermittant 'problem' with a lot of open-source repos that caused a lot of issues for the Linux devs?
By the time we get to a position where your car knows that there are other vehicles with higher value occupants, surely it, and all the other vehicles, will have enough situational awareness to NEVER get into an accident in the first place? Otherwise, how could the vehicle even attempt to make such a decision in the first place? Even a wildly out of control vehicle will be reported over the intercar network so those ahead of it can take avoiding action.

So amusing that three of the top five results for him on duckduckgo are Techdirt articles. The other two are the FTC page detailing a complaint regarding a scamming company and a linkedin page. I won't mention what the other links lead to, but no wonder Thomas Goolnik wants his history erased.
I have to agree. The W3C can decree as many standards as it likes, but if general opinion among developers is that it no longer deserves that role, it's standards won't get supported. Who fancies starting the New Open Markup Standards commitee? I think NOMS has a long way to go!
The way I see it, the moment the chemical leaves the pipe, it leaves the company's control, and at that point there's no difference between this and a chemical spill. I don't see any company being able to deny govt. agencies access to the recipe of what they've just poured into a water-course on the basis of 'trade secrets'
