Jan Wildeboer7,590Die Enthüllung des vom US-Geheimdienst NSA betriebenen Datenspähprogramms Prism durch den „Whistleblower“ Edward Snowden hat weltweit für Aufsehen gesorgt, kühnste Vermutungen bestätigt und Ängste geschürt: Unsere privatesten Daten sind weder vor privatwirtschaftlichen, noch vor staatlichen Zugriffen mehr sicher.   Die augenblicklich allgegenwärtige Diskussion über den Begriff des „gläsernen Menschen“ und über die zunehmende Kontrolle und Überwachung unserer Lebenswelt und Privatsphäre – sei es ungewollt (Stichworte: Google Street View und Google Earth, Überwachungskameras, digitaler Fingerabdruck, Rasterfahndung, Körperscanner etc.) oder freiwillig (Stichworte: Facebook, Myspace, Sexting, Blogs und Webseiten, Casting- und Talkshows etc.) – und die damit einhergehende wachsende kommerzielle Auswertung der dadurch neu verfügbaren Daten verlangen von uns heute einen bewussteren, kritischeren Umgang mit Kontrollsystemen aller Art.   Ausgehend von diesen Überlegungen untersuchen Künstler Manifestationen und Techniken der Kontrolle bzw. ersinnen im Umkehrschluss Verweigerungsstrategien und kreative Gegenentwürfe. Wie kann man sich der freiwilligen und unfreiwilligen Kontrolle durch produktionssteigernde Disziplinarsysteme entziehen? Wie verweigert man sich der zunehmenden Besitznahme durch politische, administrative und kommerzielle Strukturen? Welches Potenzial haben subversive Positionen in der Kunst?   Eine Woche vor der Eröffnung der Jahresausstellung an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste München findet – organisiert von Studierenden der Projektklasse von Prof. Julian Rosefeldt – in der historischen Aula ein Symposium zum Thema statt. Eingeladen sind Referenten aus verschiedenen Fachbereichen, die meisten von ihnen Medientheoretiker, vor allem aber auch Künstler, die subversive Strategien zur Unterminierung gängiger kommerzieller und kommunikativer Kontrollstrukturen entwickeln.   Das Symposium wird in Kooperation mit dem Lehrstuhl für Experimentelles Radio der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar über eine "Radiobrücke" live zu deren Jahresschau summaery2013 übertragen.Limits of Control - Wem Gehören Unsere Daten?2013-07-12 10:00:006

Via private share. And it's the independent, not quite the best source of objective information.

But I really think we all should start thinking about this.

5 of the 10 biggest companies in the world are IT companies

The 10 biggest companies (according to these numbers) represent a total market cap of 3.551,7 Billion US$.

The 5 IT companies (Apple, Alphabet, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon) represent a combined market cap of 2,087,2 Billion US$.

That's 58,77%

Am I the only one who sees a systemic problem with those numbers?

Is 3D Desktop Printing Dangerous?

OK. I skimmed the paper at [1] on emissions caused by typical desktop 3D printers. Here are my findings:

TL;DR Print with PLA and don't put the printer right next to you. Open your windows a few times per day and you'll be fine.

- When you must print with ABS or other filament types, make sure you do this in a well ventilated area. Don't put the printer right next to you on your desk.

- When printing with ABS or other filament types it might be worthwhile to invest in a closed casing for the printer and add particle filters.

- The overall emissions of printing with PLA are quite safe. Especially as PLA doesn't seem to emit particles or VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions that are known to be carcinogenic or suspected to be.

- Print with PLA on an unheated bed for minimal emissions. In that case you can experiment with nozzle temp quite a lot without raising the low emission levels notably.

And UFP (Ultra Fine Particle) data, the new version. Again, printing with PLA is quite safe, common sense applies, i.e. open windows every now and then and don't sit right next to your running printer all the time.

"PLA emitted significantly less overall, and most of it was a non-hazardous chemical, lactide. PLA doesn’t look like a problem.

All of the materials resulted in increased UFP exposure. These levels are above normal household background levels, but lower than certain “microclimates” which (if you follow the references) include principals’ offices with carpet, automobiles, restaurants, and rooms with burning candles or running hair dryers. In short, the UFP exposure doesn’t look like it’s going to be a big deal unless you’re sitting right next to the printer and running it continually."

"The prevailing world depression, the enormous anomaly of unemployment in a world full of wants, the disastrous mistakes we have made, blind us to what is going on under the surface to the true interpretation of the trend of things. For I predict that both of the two opposed errors of pessimism which now make so much noise in the world will be proved wrong in our own time-the pessimism of the revolutionaries who think that things are so bad that nothing can save us but violent change, and the pessimism of the reactionaries who consider the balance of our economic and social life so precarious that we must risk no experiments."

It was an incredible show of goodwill by 400 union plumbers and pipefitters from local unions across Michigan's Lower Peninsula.on Saturday, Jan. 30. They volunteered their time and skills to assemble at the union hall of Flint Plumbers and Pipe Fitters Local 370, then fanned out to install filters on kitchen faucets, replace faucets which couldn't accept the filters, and hand out bottled water and lead test kits to disadvantaged people in the city. Hundreds of homes were visited. Kudos also to the 40 service trucks union contractors allowed for the effort. Just an extraordinary effort all around to help address Flint's water crisis. Union proud!

UFP = Ultra Fine Particles. Paper from a year ago. My interpretation: Relax, we're safe.

"Compared to other domestic sources of UFPs, the 3D printing using PLA had a similar UFP emission to cooking using an electric frying pan. Using ABS resulted in UFP emissions similar to those from grilling food on a gas or electric stove at low power."

WRT to that belgian court decision against Facebook. Of course Facebook is fighting against being forced to protect our privacy. The arguments however seem to become rather desperate.

They now claim that words like "Browser", "Cookies" and "Homepage" are not part of the dutch, french or german language. And as court decisions in Belgium must be fully written in those languages, the decision is void.

Article in German. I #facepalm  a bit now :-)

Via +Carl Draper Let me say it again: Everything that touches on democratic voting MUST be open source and independently verified. Proprietary "solutions" are not acceptable. It really is that simple.

FTR I oppose any kind of voting machines, regardless of open or not. Democratic votes are too important. Paper trail is important.

Sanders Camp Wary of Microsoft Caucus Software

Members of the Bernie Sanders Primary Campaign are concerned about the impartiality of Iowa Caucus results because of Microsoft's involvement in the process.

The Redmond Tech Titan is providing a software platform for managing and tabulating caucus results. This has struck some in the Sanders Campaign as eerily reminiscent of Diebold's voting machines in 2004, which some people believe helped elect George W. Bush to his second term in office. Microsoft insists they have no nefarious agenda and simply wish to provide impartial tools for aiding the process.

The campaign has developed its own tools for checking the validity of the caucus results, so it seems unlikely this will emerge as a legitimate issue in the outcome of the election.

Regardless of how much you hate or like Apple, this statement is explosive once you let it sink in and see what it really means.

"The iPhone maker said that in constant currency, Q1 2016 revenue “would have been $5 billion higher, reflecting an 8% year-on-year increase.”

“For perspective, that difference is the size of an average Fortune 500 company,” CEO Tim Cook said on the earnings call today."

While Arcieri seems to dislike Bitcoin a lot, he makes some valid points on what defines a blockchain. Hint: most new private "blockchains" that seem to attract a lot of VC are not blockchains. FTA:

"I would argue the etymology of “blockchain” can be traced to a sort of mutated, colloquial term for Satoshi’s original “proof-of-work chain” concept, and that as soon as you move beyond consensus-by-proof-of-work you are no longer using a “blockchain”. That is to say: I think systems which are not transaction ledgers and do not use Bitcoin’s consensus-by-lottery using a proof-of-work function approach are not “blockchains”."
