I can't believe that was all way back in August.
But also, Maciej Cegłowski will one day be seen as one of the most important writers of our time. He just happens to also run Pinboard.
"I am just moving up to get a better view of the flag waver when a tear gas canister lands at my feet, and I suddenly remember an important engagement elsewhere.
When you are in a foreign land with strangers, it is good to have shared interests. They bring people together across cultural and linguistic barriers. Right now, the crowd and I are all deeply interested in moving back a bit."
Perhaps Prof Peter Collignon should stick to epidemiology since he clearly understands nothing about labour relations.
“Often it’s staff who think they’re different and don’t have to stick to the rules.”
This after several paragraphs about the problems with Australia’s nested contractor system. If you’re a casual subcontractor you go to work when you’re sick or your house gets re-possessed.
What really happens when a bunch of schoolkids are stranded on an island for 15 months. It's not savagery.
Zoom acquired Keybase today.
Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.
Beware the Keybase formula:
1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
Alrighty. @lib_papers is back, hopefully no more shenanigans.
Today I learned that the New Zealand postal system sends physical ping packets to test their network.
I received a "tracked letter" which says "we send 2,500 of these letters every week to random addresses all around New Zealand to help us check the performance of our network."
I am the lucky winner of a functioning national postal system, which considering the alternative in other countries, makes me feel pretty darn lucky.
