Ars on your lunch break: Losing my drone religion

This week, we’re serializing another episode of the After On Podcast here on Ars. Our guest was the editor-in-chief of Wired magazine for twelve years—until he did something quite unusual for an editor and started a high-profile, venture-backed startup. Specifically, 3D Robotics—which played a genuinely historic role in the rise of consumer drones (if a phenomenon that young gets to have historic players).

Chris Anderson doesn’t have the background you might expect from someone with his résumé. For one thing, he dropped or failed out of multiple schools when he was young. For another, he played bass for R.E.M. (and there’s something of a twist to this fact—but you’ll need to hear to our conversation to find out what it is). We’ll be running this interview in three installments this week. You can access today’s installment via our embedded audio player, or by reading the accompanying transcript (both of which are below).

Today, Anderson and I open by talking about his path from being a bohemian layabout to studying computational Physics at Berkeley, and finally to the pinnacle of the magazine world. We then discuss how a weekend Lego Mindstorm project with his kids led him cobble together a very early consumer-class drone. Doing this led him to discover the emerging realm of homebrew drone makers. Their online community fascinated him, and he soon became a leader within it.

Bethesda softens ground for “spectacular issues” with Fallout 76 launch

Ars Technica - October 23, 2018 - 4:12pm

Bethesda Softworks has a bit of a reputation for epic-scale worlds that are chock full of spectacular glitches—we noted that Fallout: New Vegas was "buggy as hell" way back in 2010, for instance. With the impending launch of the online-only Fallout 76, including a private beta test starting today, Bethesda seems to be leaning into this image a bit.

In a Twitter post yesterday evening, Bethesda seemed to be explicitly lowering expectations with a warning that "all new spectacular issues" will surely pop up come opening day:

Twitter plays whac-a-mole with Alex Jones, suspends 18 linked accounts

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his company InfoWars may have had their accounts yanked from Twitter, but that has not erased their presence from the platform. According to a CNN report, Twitter took action on Monday and suspended 18 additional accounts associated with Jones and InfoWars. The decision came after the Daily Beast reported last week that numerous accounts were still sharing InfoWars' content.

All of the newly suspended accounts were "under the InfoWars umbrella," according to a statement from a Twitter spokesperson provided to CNET. Some of those suspended include the InfoWars Store account and the InfoWars "Real News" with David Knight show account.

Twitter claims that it banned the accounts in part because they were trying to circumvent the initial ban of Alex Jones' and InfoWars' primary accounts by sharing content from the conspiracy-theory outlet. The accounts reportedly received "numerous violations and warnings" before finally being suspended. This deluge of suspensions comes after Twitter reportedly already suspended five other accounts for disseminating InfoWars content.
