A while ago I wondered what kind of valuable data could be collected from a privatised footpath. Turns out that some cities are making private-public partnerships to put sensors into things like street lamps, and what they do with some data is secret. https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2018/mar/01/smart-cities-data-privacy-eindhoven-utrecht
Yesterday some workers had some repairs to do so we were without electricity for most of the day
And even when it came back, it was unstable, it came and went
Basically I'm not very productive, but if you add basic obstacles like this....
ICYMI: @FastCoDesign on the interplay of software & society.
"If 2016 was the year it became impossible to ignore the power software exerts on society, then today, in 2018, we can start to identify some signals about what the levers of control might be." https://www.fastcodesign.com/90162002/a-guide-to-the-new-field-of-software-politics source: https://twitter.com/mozilla/status/969218009117216768
At the cost of seeming impertinent, I' d like to ask you to take a look at this post of mine
I've been there too.
I went all the way to a worshop in Berlin, to be taught #Clojure
And they made us do the game of life, with a graphics library called Quil
And I've been there with Python too
"Clojurians, please share your knowledges with blogs"
I rarely do this, but one of my very good friends is facing high vet bills to save her cat, who has a genetic heart condition. My friend is a college student barely making ends meet. If you could spare anything to help Xena and her human, it would be much appreciated <3

I published a new post of mine in my brand new personal static indie blog
The title is: "Self publishing of scientific datasets"
Here it is
The workflow of my new blog is awesome !!
I build the blog locally and then with a single command line, rsync synchronizes !!
Never been so easy !!
Wordpress can't really help me, it has nothing to offer !!
ok, my #vps on netcup.de was activated
But I can't use it
How do I associate a domain with it ?
I have created this question in the forums, if anyone can help me, I'd be grateful
Good new bad news,
Good news, I'm on the final step for a position at Simple!
Bad news, my unemployment got pulled again and it will anywhere from two to three weeks until it kicks back in and even if I get lucky enough to land the position at Simple, I probably won't start anywhere soon enough that it will fix this gap. Any help is seriously appreciated, I'm not even sure if I can pay rent (and food and other bills are another thing entirely). I know I've already asked a lot and I'm really sorry to be asking again but I'm hoping this will be the last time for a while, even a boost helps
I just learned a few exercises for my vertebrae mobility
This is breathtaking 😮
