Hello there. Musique avec Grand blanc, putain.
Mémoires Vives by Grand Blanc (bandcamp.com)
- Kenneth Reitz - MentalHealthError: an exception occurred, via HN. A reminder of how even a seemingly grounded individual (Kenneth is a brilliant contributor to the Python ecosystem) can slide into craziness. We're unstable things.
- TTIP enters new and dangerous stage as democracy is dismantled in secret, via HN where a commenter points out that:
"It's especially frightening for us Europeans, that TTIP can overrule existing local legislature, and that officials representing EU states only have access to the full text of 600 pages for 2 hours every thursday, accompanied by two security guards beside you at all times, behind closed doors, after the metal detector where you have leave all your electronics and recording devices behind. Oh, and you're not allowed to take any notes, not even with a pencil."
... which is not a joke, apparently, as reported by German MP Katja Kipping.
- Brave browser is out, and it feels really fast on my old iDevice that damn-you-Apple-doesn't-support content blocking extensions. Very curious to see how well their split-compensation-rather-than-ads feature works when it lands. A bit sad that all this is coming from a startup of ex-mozillians rather than Mozilla itself.
- Mozilla Webrender: rendering any webpage at several hundred FPS, via HN.
- More creative freeskiing hijinks from Candide Thovex, WJW.
- [fr] Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon: qui paie le moins d'impôts ?, via nitot.
- Oh hey, more talk about this little Apple thingie going on and on and [fr] on.
- Artists covertly 3d-scan bust of Nefertiti and release the data for free online, via waxy links.
- Singular they.
- Patrick McKenzie (patio11) on what developers should know about job searching and negotiation, via HN.
