"We're going into a different world, unchartered. And, like it or not, what people can do or governments can do is different, and you can to some extent control, but you can't keep the tides from coming in ... It's scary, but what's the difference whether the drone is up in the air or on the building? ... We're gonna have more visibility and less privacy. I don't see how you stop that. The argument against using automation, it's this craziness — oh, it's big brother. Get used to it." —Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who will buy his own planet, population one, as soon as it is humanly possible.
