After a longer period of contemplation: I decided to shut down comments on here. If people want to get in touch with me or let me know their remarks Twitter has been far more usable/direct. Sorry for the ones one that was still using the comments — Sorry Habi 😉
Was war diese Woche denn so wichtig? Nebst einer ziemlich grossen Passwortsammlung gab es da noch die 10 Year Challenge, welche auch ganz spannende Fragen aufwerfen kann. Abgerundet wird das Ganze mit einem langen Artikel über Open Source Software.
More than half of the world’s population is now online, but that does not mean we all see the same thing. From being filtered by the government to being delivered by post, the internet can vary enormously depending on where you live. Here are four illustrated examples
Spannender Artikel zum Internet in China, Russland, Kuba und Indien.
Me 10 years ago: probably would have played along with the profile picture aging meme going around on Facebook and Instagram
Me now: ponders how all this data could be mined to train facial recognition algorithms on age progression and age recognition
The problem with overstaying your relationship with a brand is that, like any dysfunctional relationship, it works on a certain level. Your basic needs are met, your professional identity has been wrapped up in it, many friends know you through the brand, and you might even have logo coffee cups that cement the relationship. Changing all that just seems all too much to bear, especially if we think of ourselves as loyal people and not bandwagon folk. Maybe, you think to yourself, “if I just stick through this a little bit longer, it could get better. It might make all the waiting worth it. I could look smart.”
Guter Artikel, wie lange habe ich doch auf das nächste grosse Ding von Nikon gewartet… Unterdessen bin ich mit einer Sony unterwegs und ganz zufrieden.
It is also important to realize the increasing importance of the developer for these open-source projects. The traditional go-to-market model of closed source software targeted IT as the purchasing center of software. While IT still plays a role, the real customers of open source are the developers who often discover the software, and then download and integrate it into the prototype versions of the projects that they are working on. Once “infected”by open-source software, these projects work their way through the development cycles of organizations from design, to prototyping, to development, to integration and testing, to staging, and finally to production. By the time the open-source software gets to production it is rarely, if ever, displaced. Fundamentally, the software is never “sold”; it is adopted by the developers who appreciate the software more because they can see it and use it themselves rather than being subject to it based on executive decisions.
Also irgendwie brauchte ich einen Moment, um nach den upgrade zu WordPress 5 wieder einen Workflow hinzubiegen, der mir Markdown erlaubte. Nun läuft das Ganze aber wieder. Aber der neue Gutenberg Editor in WordPress macht halt irgendwie schon ganz ordentlich Spass, wenn man sich mal daran gewöhnt hat.
Back to the 90ies… nachdem ich vor dem 35C3 versucht habe "nur mal eben kurz" mein zweit Notebook mit Linux zu bestücken und schlussendlich nicht mal die Tastatur funktionierte habe ich im Januar nochmal eine Stunde in die Problematik versenkt… Als dann mein uralter Wifi Dongle besser schlussendlich funktionierte als das verbaute WifiModul habe ich kurz einen Ragequit gemacht. -_-
Trend Micro said in a blog post that the malware listens for commands from a Twitter account run by the malware operator. The researchers found two tweets that used steganography to hide “/print” commands in the meme images, which told the malware to take a screenshot of an infected computer. The malware then separately obtains the address where its command and control server is located from a Pastebin post, which directs the malware where to send the screenshots — 10/10 points for creativity, that’s for sure.
And here we are again. The past few months were pretty intense but interesting – A few conferences, side projects and yes a TEDxBern went smoothly by. Oh yes and I spent quite some times in the mountains thats why it was quite silent here (if you’re with me since a while you know this happens every once in a while.)
Routing everything through my credit card is feeding the global payments cartel, who extract a tariff measured in freaking dollars for almost every routine transaction. I’ve seen so many great business plans go begging because they could have done something wonderful in the world if you could only do micropayments, which you can’t, did I mention that cartel that basically has it locked up and tied down?
Wenn es Zeit ist, online zu gehen, kann die 4G LTE-Verbindung des MP 02 mit einem Tablet/Laptop geteilt werden – das bedeutet eine leichtere Eingabe als beim Smartphone und einen größeren Bildschirm. Dieser Zwei-Geräte-Ansatz bedeutet, dass das Internet etwas ist, in das Sie eintauchen, und nicht umgekehrt.
Originally, they prototyped the glasses using the Casper film stuck onto regular lenses. But they later realized that any polarized lens rotated 90 degrees and flattened could produce the same screen-blocking effect. Right now, their lenses can block light emitted from LCD and LED screens, but not OLED screens. That means they tune out most televisions and some computers, but not the newer crop of smartphones like the OLED-packing iPhones.
The schedule we currently operate on is two weeks of support and two weeks of engineering. It’s not a completely pure system, of course, you might get pulled into support when you are on an engineering sprint but there is an expectation that you can and should have time to build, to innovate, and to unplug if necessary to do it.
A few insights from Tyler how we handle engineering and support at amazee.io
At Heroku, we’ve come up with a methodology called the 12 factor app. It’s a set of principles designed to make great web applications that are easy to maintain. In that spirit, here are 12 CLI factors to keep in mind when building your next CLI application. Following these principles will offer CLI UX that users will love.
We’ve also built a CLI framework called oclif that is designed to follow these principles to build great CLIs in Node.
Interesting approaches for people building CLI apps.
Unfortunately, because so many sites have not yet taken action, moving this change from Firefox 63 Nightly into Beta would impact a significant number of our users. It is unfortunate that so many website operators have waited to update their certificates, especially given that DigiCert is providing replacements for free.
We prioritize the safety of our users and recognize the additional risk caused by a delay in the implementation of the distrust plan. However, given the current situation, we believe that delaying the release of this change until later this year when more sites have replaced their Symantec TLS certificates is in the overall best interest of our users. This change will remain enabled in Nightly, and we plan to enable it in Firefox 64 Beta when it ships in mid-October.
