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
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
@catonano this is an interesting post! I think more people would read it though if the title mentioned the topic of the post. I didn't know it was going to be about self-publishing scientific datasets when I clicked it! 👍
Ok, so I have my blog hosted on a vps, now
The domain is not exactly nice but I won't spend 4 euros/month or a domain name
The vps alone is costly enough
Also, I don't understand:
at this address I get something
At this other address I get something else (links are broken because of the "html" prefix)
How do I populate the pages for the domain ?
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
Whoa nice. Paradigms of Aritficial Intelligence Programming (a lisp classic) is now libre and available online https://github.com/norvig/paip-lisp
Any dimwit can understand computers. Many do.
