QoTD: Justice Kirby

“We are moving to a point in the world where more and more law will be expressed in its effective way, not in terms of statutes solidly enacted by the parliament … but in the technology itself: code.” — Australian High Court Judge, Justice Kirby, Tech makes lawmakers impotent, says Judge

Great to hear this understood and so clearly stated by a highly influential Australian judge.

    This might be true Jeff, but it’s not exactly a great thing as he notes that corporations are using technology to beat the law. For every upside, there is a downside I’m afraid.

    The upside is that one of our own high profile jurists understands and realises that the problem exists. There are few upsides, if any, to the problem itself.
