Chair of House of Lords committee investigating drones doesn’t know what Google Maps is…



So drones are a new thing with important implications in a wide range of fields. Drones have the potential to change the way we think about privacy, security, the postal service, how we fight wars… and a tonne of other things. So it makes sense that Parliament might want to appoint a committee to look at the implications.

However, check out this gem from @MattBurgess1. It seems that the chair of the committee – who we believe to be Baroness O’Cathain – doesn’t even know what Google Maps is…
