Hardware, Embedded Systems No matter where you look these days, there's a profound sense here in the west that the people no longer having any tangible control over what our governments do. Sure, we are allowed to vote every once in a while, but effectively, most of our countries are governed by backroom deals and corporate interests. If matters really do get out of hand, how do we fight this? Well, with technology of course!

Considering that I know of someone who has been jailed with felony charges for lobbing seedpods in the direction of the police at a protest, and that our governments are cracking down on whistleblowers, you're sure to be labeled by some folks as a terrorist.

Speaking from the USA, all of our nation's founders risked the gallows from the government they revolted against, so it's ridiculously ironic that our government has made King George III's tyranny look petty.
