Uhm. Ok. I guess? Seems something has changed. From pleading not guilty to guilty. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/apr/20/marcus-hutchins-uk-ransomware-hero-pleads-guilty-to-us-hacking-charges
We all are either frightened or fascinated (or both) by the viral #bostondynamics robot videos. But I keep on asking myself - how do they actually make money? What do they sell? To whom?
Donating +900M€ to rebuild #NotreDame is IMHO the thing Jesus drove to throw the tables at the temple. Especially as that money comes from the few that are really good at avoiding paying taxes to help the many.
@ondra and IMHO this is the real reason Google wants this. FTA: “This allows you to use first-party cookies and storage to customize content and simplify analytics integration.”
@ondra it legitimates a dark UI pattern of showing a domain in the address bar that isn’t the domain serving the content.
I am truly frightened by how close this is to the tactics of phishing scams. #Google and the #IETF are on the wrong path with this IMHO. https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2019/04/instant-loading-amp-pages-from-your-own.html
Apple and Qualcomm settle all IP disputes. Because patent wars don’t work IMHO. https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/04/qualcomm-and-apple-agree-to-drop-all-litigation/
TIL - #Pogonophobia - the fear of beards.
Very long term planning for #NotreDame. I’m impressed. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1117895531563372544.html
@lkundrak So what do you propose? Tear it down and put a nice Starbucks in its place? There are several perspectives on these historic artefacts. One is history, one is architecture, another one is the artistry that went into, for example, the IMHO unbelievably beautiful glass roses. Reducing it to one of these perspectives is IMHO not a good approach. In sum, again IMHO, it is absolutely worth saving and rebuilding Notre Dame.
Defective aircraft on #SXF Schönefeld airport blocks runway. Flights are being diverted. FYI
@lkundrak you can start with the “ownership” chapter on the Wikipedia page of Notre Dame. And from there dive deeper into the history of French secularisation.
