This AA Battery Sucks Power Right Out of the Air (gizmodo.com)

[…] is that the transmitter broadcasts a directed and concentrated RF signal towards a given device in a room, which is absorbed by the gadget’s own RF antennas inside, and turned into usable power.

Woah! That’s some quite interesting piece of technology!

How I Shipped Six Side Projects in 2017 (hackernoon.com)

Light Traffic (senseable.mit.edu)

Traffic lights are a 150-year-old technology originally conceived for horse carriages. Will they survive the advent of autonomous vehicles?

Very interesting approach that asks if the intersections with traffic lights might be a thing of the past as soon as a lot of vehicles will be autonomous.

Eine Fotoschau als perfekte Cashcow (woz.ch)

Leider leider leider finde ich die ehemals schöne Werkausstellung auch nicht mehr so toll wie auch schon. Spätestens wenn man eine Abteilung für Influencerfotografie hat bin ich raus.

The Brutal Lifecycle of JavaScript Frameworks (stackoverflow.blog)

JavaScript UI frameworks and libraries work in cycles. Every six months or so, a new one pops up, claiming that it has revolutionized UI development. Thousands of developers adopt it into their new projects, blog posts are written, Stack Overflow questions are asked and answered, and then a newer (and even more revolutionary) framework pops up to usurp the throne.

DNSFS. Store your files in others DNS resolver caches (blog.benjojo.co.uk)

[…] and I joked at the end that one could use this for file storage.

Well, I could not stop thinking about doing this. There are surely a lot of open DNS resolvers out on the internet, that are just asking to be used for storing random things in them. Think of it. Possibly tens of gigabytes of cache space that could be used!

After PingFS comes DnsFS!

flowerhack | The Internet I Knew (flowerhack.dreamwidth.org)

We… we had ad-free social networking in 2004. It was called “one of your friends got a Dreamhost and put some forum software on it and everyone hung out there.” If the website got really big and popular, maybe the owner would ask for donations from the users, and usually folks would give enough to keep the place afloat, because everyone wanted to keep hanging out there.

Einige erinnern sich noch ands dRB ;)

Ticket shop application for conferences, festivals, concerts, tech events, shows, exhibitions, workshops, barcamps, etc.
