I would pay good money, and a large tub of popcorn to watch Linus respond to something like that.
I would also start a betting pool for certain, choice, phrase words.
Absolutely. And it does prevent it. I would turn down any opportunity from an automotive agency.
There is no doubt that the IoT is happening all around us. I guess that by the time is reaches peak penetration, weâ(TM)ll no longer be using the acronym because itâ(TM)ll simply be business as usual. In the meantime, and more than ever, we need to be thinking about the things we donâ(TM)t know. Groups like the one Iâ(TM)m privileged to engage in help to bring fresh perspective from outside our industry. As such, itâ(TM)s oxygen to innovation.

I am not going to get in some dick waving argument with some random troll on slashdot. So I will leave with this:
1) I clearly stated that I know little to nothing about drones, aside from their software and electronics. Nice attempt at an insult. if you had read the post, you would have noticed this.
2) Your attempt at blasting my logical attempt at stating common sense license and certifications for hardware and software that are -capable of causing damage- (Drones larger than an ounce and fly for more than five bloody minutes, as you like to state) is falling way behind.
3) If you cannot agree that certifications for a FLYING OBJECT capable of carrying MULTIPLE PAYLOADS and traversing THOUSANDS OF FEET from the controller, with tons of chances of interference and software defects / user error is a good idea, then perhaps you're the type of person who should be the politician. As you seem to only care about yourself.
I am referring to the ones that, obviously, weigh more than an ounce, especially considering I stated "higher than 10m."
I am referring to the drones that actually fly hundreds of feet in altitude and hundreds of feet (or more) from the user. I am not for crippling it. I am for safe guarding it. With logic.
A $40.00 drone from walmart? Fly it all you want.
A $4,500 drone, purpose built to fly quite a ways, with strong motors, big power supplies and capable of carrying payloads of different types? License and certifications for programming.
Did you even RTFP?
I will admit, freely, that I know very little, outside of the basics of electronics, about drones. I know how they work, but that's about it.
Hearing that the control systems are made by amateurs really does not surprise me. I've seen a trend lately of more and more people with no real clue of what they're doing, getting in to hardware/software design. Which, on its own, is AMAZING to hear; I love knowing more people are learning the trade. But stick with the Pi, arduino and other small systems. When you're competent enough, then move in to the flying / driving realm. Unfortunately, it won't happen that way - They'll go straight to the drone world because, frankly (and, again, sadly) that's where the money is right now. It's all about trends and what's 'popular.'
I would LOVE to see what a well trained engineer
We already require license to fly planes, even remote controlled ones. It's time to require them for drones (if they don't already) and to require code certification for any object flying more than 10 meters off the ground. Certification is required for cars and planes, logically it should be for drones. This way a child can learn to code below 10m and hone in his / her skills as a programmer but when you are ready to go full scale, you have full accountability. I can already see a drone software certification coming. DCERT, maybe?
I don't even think I would devote my time and skill to a company, even after a lawyer has went over every bit of the contract. The liability, and ethical (and moral, I assume) reasoning alone prevents me from wanting to.
Don't get me wrong - I think they're cool ideas, in the right hands. But as a mass commodity and spy usage really gets on my nerves. We cannot get code right for automobiles, on the ground. How can we get code right for drones in the sky?
Exactly what I mentioned in my comment elsewhere here. The idea of HS grads who took a small course on "intro to JAVA" writing drone software scares the living crap out of me. And for good reason.
