William Fetter, E.A.T., and 1960s Computer Graphics Collaborations in Seattle -
"William Fetter (1928-2002) worked at Boeing in the 1950s and 1960s and invented early computer graphics applications. He also helped found a Seattle chapter of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) at the Henry Art Gallery in 1968, bringing together artists and engineers in Seattle and Portland. This essay, originally posted on the website, is by Robin Oppenheimer (b. 1952), who met and interviewed Fetter before his death as part of her research into the E.A.T. chapter for a Reunion Symposium at the Henry Art Gallery on October 25 and 26, 2002."
"By November 1960, a formal research program was established by Boeing, and management of the Research and Development project was assigned to Fetter, who was later transferred to the Seattle office in 1963. With his team of engineers and computer specialists, Fetter began to develop computer-created one-second interval drawings of simulated views from a moving airplane cockpit during an airport landing. This was the primitive beginning of the current billion dollar computer graphics and computer animation industries,"

Big Tech Is Fighting to Change Washington's Pioneering Rules on Election Ad Transparency - Slog - The Stranger
"Among other things, the tech lobby's proposed changes would erase language in state code that requires companies like Google and Facebook to actually know when they've sold a political ad aiming to influence Washington's elections."
"Few of these issues will be easy to resolve to universal satisfaction, and the [WA Public Disclosure Committee]-as the Internet Association notes in its letter—will have to wrestle with all of this in the context of the overworked agency's "limited funding."

But Washington has long been a leader on election transparency and pretty much everyone involved seems to agree that it's important to democracy that the current rules—if they do need revising—be revised carefully and with the public good foremost in mind."

The Science Behind Home Disaster Preparedness Kits Is a Disaster | WIRED
"But the hard truth is, local communities can and probably should be filling gaps that government advice suggests are the responsibilities of individuals. The central insight that sparked full-fledged research into the sociology of disasters and their response was that people tend to help each other in times of distress. Disaster researchers and risk managers don’t want to jeopardize that covenant. Yet that’s the deeper risk of telling people they’re on the hook to defend their own castles for two weeks after a disaster."
