Jan Wildeboer7,263Die 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 10:00:006G+

Max Huijgen41,136Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! A new circle of Europeans as I promised long ago to connect the people who responded and share them. See for the first shared circle this post https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has multiple managers out of the community and that initiative recently span off +European Photo  but feel to offer a bit of your time for this community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. We need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+I hope these posts can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it.And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)2013-03-15 15:05:14291532076CC G+

Ian Herndon8,223Shared Circle Time! - G+ Community Moderators & Owners (5 of x)Re-Share to help moderators easily connect with one another!Now that Google has launched Communities there has been a ton of activity by people to create communities relating to their interests, join ones created by others, and meet other creators in an effort to learn more and more new ways to build and contribute to G+ Communities. +Community Moderators is an example of a page/community dedicated specifically to having a single place where all moderators can join in discussion around just that.I have been hard at work creating Circles that consist of Community Moderators and Owners only. My hope is to be able to help others expand their network of friends to also include like minded people dabbling in the Community space too. In the near future I intend to eventually group these moderator circles into smaller more targeted ones tailored to specific interests. So with that said, here's our circles!G+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (1 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/ETe6deLAMq2G+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (2 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/7i2DXeQpknnG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (3 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/j1rsi9YGGVgG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (4 of x) - 1/12/2013https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/VFUjZcifXPQG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (5 of x) - 1/12/2013https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/LpiNK8BmKnN#Community     #Moderators     #Owners     #Communities     #Circle   #SharedCircles     #CircleShare2013-01-12 16:30:19500303CC G+

Dede King0I Missed My Cake DayThe 2 November 2011 was my cherry popping entry into the land of Plus. A year later and I can honestly say it's the best social network I've ever used. I can't remember a time, ever, when I've looked more insane smiling, laughing and scowling at a tech device in numerous coffee shops across the map.I just wanted to say thank you to the thousands of amazing people who've circled me, some of whom I've been privileged to meet and get to know. I wish circles weren't limited to 5000 and a 500 share so I could ping you all.So, Thank You (with a special nod, hugs and kisses to the top 12, yes even you) for making it fun, interesting, exciting, textless, pouncable, inflammatory, lollable, educational, thought provoking, melt worthy, smile inducing, loving, warm - just downright fantabulous.All my plusses they belong to you. Literally. Who else am I going to give it to ? Facebook?This link gave me my public plus stats - all of it is thanks to you :) http://www.allmyplus.com/u/107635094329792651474#startI must admit, I'm grateful I posted the more contentious topics limited. Aren't you? Everything is so pubic these days.Yes I meant to say pubic.Did you miss it? You're getting old.I wonder how many of these post scripts I can do before I run out of things to say.Are you still reading?Still?I need coffee.As always, have an amazing day, week, month, year x2012-11-08 09:07:0949964675CC G+
Dede King0Google Plus says,"Dede King, the following people are relevant to you for the month of November."I say, "Spanks." I herewith christen it (so to speak), the MFK circle or The Block Party. Both appropriate on any given day.Have a sparkling Thursday. What? You don't want to sparkle? Sometimes, I doubt your commitment to sparkle motion.If you get all the somewhat obscure references, all my plusses they belong to you.+The Best Circles on Google+ +Shared Circles (Обмен кругами) +CIRCLES on Google+  Relevance, I assume, is based on interaction over time.2012-11-01 16:05:5350026446164CC G+
Dede King0October Serendipity CircleRelevant to me for the month of October according to Google. Serendipity - because I love the word and it's one of the first ones I was ever forced to look up in a dictionary. Forced, because my mother refused to tell me the meaning of any words, insisting that I used a paper dictionary. Paper, because I had no concept of what would some day become an extension of my life;  Extension of my life - The Internet - also the place where I met most of these fabulous people through sheer...serendipity.Have an amazing weekend.PS.

Dede King0The Oontz Oontz Circle #Top500  According to Google. This started as a ♂ circle, then became a 'Let me test G+'s notification limits' circle, but gosh there's just too many. I need more estrogen in my circles if this is anything to go by. I was listening to electro-house music in the background. Connect the dotz.I'm pretty sure this is a good bunch, though there might be some rogue snipers that missed my wine toothed comb. I notified no one. I'm just throwing it out there because I can't sleep and going through my circles and rambling in run on incoherent sentences about it seemed like a good idea at the time.2012-09-12 00:43:30500163447CC G+

The only acceptable position from gun nutters after the "Bullets And Burgers" killing of a gun instructor by a 9 year old girl firing an Uzi in automatic mode is IMHO "shit happens". That position exemplifies their ignorance and ridicule. Any normal thinking person should think "Darwin award" and feel pity for the poor girl growing up with this burden.

Unfortunately I already see The Book, The Movie and The Lawyers "taking care".

Murica, you are doomed. You are out of control. I don't like you.

Fascinating. 75% of all IKEA product images are CG (computer generated). At extremely high resolution and detail. And the rendering is done inhouse, using also spare cycles of office machines. I am impressed. http://www.cgsociety.org/index.php/CGSFeatures/CGSFeatureSpecial/building_3d_with_ikea

Because the original wall brackets are overpriced and extremely rare, I present my IKEA hack :-) The Beomaster finally shines the way I wanted it to!

I abused the brackets from this Applarö board: http://www.ikea.com/de/de/images/products/applaro-bord-fur-wandpaneel__0131154_PE285713_S4.JPG

Cut off the ends, drilled two holes and cut a M4 thread to screw in the holders that slide into the holes of the Beomaster. Done.

A bit more than 11 years ago we installed our 1000th rack, shown here on the loading dock.  We knew it was #1000 so we tricked it out a bit. These racks were a bit cleaner than the original corkboard racks :-)  We called them fridges because...well, I don't know why.  

Just to clarify we didn't actually have 1000 live racks at that time, since many older racks had been retired.  This was the 1000th Google-designed rack ever produced.

The authorship experiment at Google is over.

I’ve been involved since we first started testing authorship markup and displaying it in search results. We've gotten lots of useful feedback from all kinds of webmasters and users, and we've tweaked, updated, and honed recognition and displaying of authorship information. Unfortunately, we've also observed that this information isn’t as useful to our users as we’d hoped, and can even distract from those results. With this in mind, we've made the difficult decision to stop showing authorship in search results. 

(If you’re curious -- in our tests, removing authorship generally does not seem to reduce traffic to sites. Nor does it increase clicks on ads. We make these kinds of changes to improve our users’ experience.)

On a personal note, it's been fun and interesting travelling the road of authorship with all of you. There have been weird quirks, bugs, some spam to fight, but the most rewarding thing has been (and will continue to be) interacting with webmasters themselves. We realize authorship wasn't always easy to implement, and we greatly appreciate the effort you put into continually improving your sites for your users.  Thank you!

Going forward, we're strongly committed to continuing and expanding our support of structured markup (such as schema.org). This markup helps all search engines better understand the content and context of pages on the web, and we'll continue to use it to show rich snippets in search results.

It’s also worth mentioning that Search users will still see Google+ posts from friends and pages when they’re relevant to the query — both in the main results, and on the right-hand side. Today’s authorship change doesn’t impact these social features.

As always, we’ll keep expanding and improving the set of free tools we provide to make it easier for you to optimize your sites. Thank you again, and please keep the feedback coming.___The authorship experiment at Google is over.

Hi All, 

Since yesterday was apparently National Dog Day, (seriously?) and since my second-to-the-last post triggered a variety of observations around my apparent failure to “rise to challenge,” as it were, I’m weighing in with another image of young Freddy, who like his master, has decided to forego The ALS/Ice Bucket Challenge. 

I mean no disrespect to the 500 or so individuals who have publicly challenged me to participate. And God knows, I’m in near constant need of a cold shower. But as a guy who has represented some rather large, profitable companies while running a non-profit foundation, I’ve got some opinions on the subject of persuasion, especially as it applies to fundraising. And I’ve been struggling with how to share those thoughts in a way that will not make me look like a douche-bag.

First of all, I tip my hat to the marketing genius that conceived of this device. Thanks to The Ice Bucket Challenge, The ALS Association has collected $75 million dollars in donations. That’s up from just $1.9 million over the same period a year ago.That’s amazing, and totally unprecedented. And if we lived in a world of unlimited philanthropic resources, it would be fantastic news. But we don’t live in that world. We live in a world where generous people of finite means must allocate their charitable giving with discretion - in the same way they allocate all other expenditures. In this world, more money for ALS means less money for Heart Disease. More for Malaria means less for Diabetes. More for AIDS means less for Alzheimer’s. And so forth. 

It’s not exactly a zero sum game, but the cannibalism factor in charitable giving is a very serious problem. According to the experts, 50% to 70% of all the money collected as a result of the Ice Bucket Challenge will directly impact future contributions to other charities in an equal and opposite way. In other words, if The ALS Association collects a $100 million - as it’s on track to do - other charities competing for the same dollars will collect between $50 and $70 million LESS. Thus, the largest donations do not necessarily go to those charities that serve the most people or do the best research - they go to those that who market themselves in the most effective way. 

This informs the way I give, and the way I solicit. It’s one thing to sell cars or trucks or jeans or paper towels. God knows, I've been there, and I'm comfortable with the consequences of pushing one brand at the expense of another. But in the non-profit world, the stakes are bit higher. I’m reluctant to participate in a challenge that’s raising so much money for a small association, especially when it impacts other research that will eventually save the lives of millions. That's the cold and shitty calculus of charitable giving.

Of course - I understand those who see it differently. If my Dad or my brother was among the 6,000 diagnosed with ALS every year, I’d be standing under a shower of freezing water, waving my checkbook in the air and challenging the world to get on board. I remember when my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer - I would have done anything to fix it. In fact, I took off my pants and challenged the world to donate the cost of their favorite pair of jeans to help find a cure. I get it. 

But here’s the thing - if you decide to give charitably, it’s important to understand everything you can about the way your money is going to be spent. That’s not happening here. The spectacular success of the Ice Bucket Challenge is not the result of a conscious, collective commitment to rise up against a terrible scourge; it’s the result of a marketing campaign. Consequently, a foundation accustomed to working for decades on a million dollars or so in annual donations, will now have to manage a $75 million jackpot. That worries me, as it should anyone who has ever studied the fate of lottery winners. That’s not their fault, but it doesn’t change the situation, and I’m not inclined to challenge more people to send more money to coffers that are already overflowing. 

Some of you will remember a recent post about my friend, Jill Brown. Jill is a stuntwoman who got a brain tumor and lived to tell the tale. http://www.refinery29.com/2014/01/60263/brain-tumor-story Last year, she asked me to sponsor her in a walk to raise money for brain tumor research. She didn’t like asking, and I don’t blame her. Asking people for money is never fun. Even for a good cause. But Jill was very grateful for a second chance at life, and determined to support those suffering from the same condition that she overcame. So she personally called everyone she knew and explained why she walking, how the money that she raised would be used, and why the research was so important. Consequently, she raised a tidy sum for a great cause that was near and dear to her. 

Point is, Jill did several difficult things. She vowed to walk, at a time when walking wasn’t so easy. She committed her time, her energy, and her passion to a cause that mattered deeply to her. And most importantly, she made the whole thing personal. That made me want to help her. Not just because she's my friend - but because she was helping herself. 

The Ice Bucket Challenge is different. Here, people I’ve never met give me 24 hours to either write a check to a charity I’m not familiar with, or dump a bucket of cold water over my head. Tell me honestly - if that precise challenge arrived to you privately, via the US Mail, what would you do with it? You’d throw it in the trash, right? But a public challenge is not so easy to ignore. Online, everyone is watching. Your friends. Your co-workers. Your clients. Maybe even your boss. 

When it comes to asking people for help, I don’t like to put them in an awkward position. So the only challenge I’m issuing today is to Freddy. If he can refrain from peeing on the floor, I’ll send a check to the local shelter. Beyond that, I'm staying dry.

Again - to anyone who’s been affected directly or indirectly by ALS, my heart goes out to you. And to those who challenged me personally, I know your heart’s in the right place. So I’m going to reserve the right to dump various substances over my head at a future date for whatever reason I deem appropriate, and encourage you all to ignore the gimmicks, get informed about the charities you wish to support, and contribute generously to whatever cause resonates with you.

Mike

--------------------------------

Steve here again. To his no doubt sufficient thoughts I will add this. I have been extremely uncomfortable with the push I'm seeing among those friends of mine (mostly on Facebook) who don't have a clue what they're doing - it's not just about a dare to do something silly publicly! - and even those who actually get it enough to actually donate and "challenge" others to donate. My problem isn't nearly as much with those participating as it is with the nature of the campaign itself, in which people are being pushed to give to this particular organization in a forced, unnatural way, usually either to avoid shame, to get attention, or just because it looks like fun. Heaven knows, charitable giving does need to be encouraged, and in creative ways. But it'd be better to inspire people to give to things that they have thought through and things that "resonate" with them, in Rowe's words rather than because it's a fad. I share Rowe's concern that this will inoculate people from giving to other causes that more desperately need money and I also fear the almost inevitable cloning of this kind of thing to other charities until we come to associate charities with annoying gimmicks and give even less than we do now.___CC +Ayoub Khote via +Craig Trader

I am not sure about the correctness of this story. Maybe someone from the +Raspberry Pi foundation can clarify? The facts so far seem to be that Odroid does not get the chips it needs from Broadcom. For whatever reason. The story however claims the Raspberry Pi foundation somehow is behind this. But it doesn't show any proof for that accusation. I don't buy it ATM. Via +Peter Cannon

Fascinating. 75% of all IKEA product images are CG (computer generated). At extremely high resolution and detail. And the rendering is done inhouse, using also spare cycles of office machines. I am impressed. http://www.cgsociety.org/index.php/CGSFeatures/CGSFeatureSpecial/building_3d_with_ikea

Global bandwidth pricing

TL;DR Europe is best and cheapest due to high peering rates and non-profit peer exchanges. US is more expensive because for-profit peering. Asia and Australia are excessively priced.

Very interesting overview.

It has become really silent about Google Glass. I guess the hype is over and people "see" it is just that ATM. There might be a future for it, but in its current incarnation it simply isn't good enough IMHO.

THE  r-u-b-b-l-e  BUCKET CHALLENGE

"Standing amid a scene of utter devastation, Ayman al-Aloul explains that his reasoning for pouring a bucket of rubble over his head is to raise awareness for the suffering of people in Gaza.

"Taking inspiration from the popularity of the ALS ice bucket challenge, the Palestinian journalist explains that his new concept is not aimed at raising money but in the hope that anyone interested will come up with their own way of helping the cause.

"Several videos of people taking on the challenge have been posted on a Facebook page, as well as a number of videos on YouTube."

    "We looked for a bucket of water however, the use of water is more important than to empty over our heads.

    "We do not have much water, but we have plenty of this."

Proud. My son made a case for the Arduino I gave him. He's already programming it with a lot of enthusiasm and patience.

Sorry for the blurred picture, but he took it himself and was too proud to focus on focus ;-)

Sometimes all of these wayland/systemd/UEFI/SecureBoot discussions look to me like people buying new cars but insisting that ABS, ESP and all those other gadgets must be removed because all of that wasn't needed in the past and they don't know what it does anyway. Le Sigh.

TL;DR While the world was boycotting Mugabe, a Wall Street consortium invested $100M in him so Mugabe could buy weapons, start a war, do a genocide in exchange for platinum mines for these hedge fonds.

This is how the invisible hand works. When companies are people, how about putting these evil ones in jail?
