Naukowcy zszokowani powodziami w Niemczech.

Niektórzy nie chcą uznać istnienia zmian klimatu, bo naukowcy się mylą. Zapominają, że naukowcy mogą się też pomylić w drugą stronę - może być gorzej niż sądzili.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

Dziś wesela są przede wszystkim różne. Nie ma jednego obowiązującego schematu. Jest pewne wspólne wyobrażenie o ‘typowym polskim weselu’, ale częściej staje się ono raczej czymś, od czego młodzi chcieliby się odciąć, niż wzorcem godnym naśladowania

But that's exactly what someone would say once they've completed their mind reading technology....

Fundamentalna różnica między technologiami rozrywki, a wszystkimi innymi, leży w sposobie, w jaki przynoszą one zyski. W tradycyjnych technologiach przychody zależą bezpośrednio od tego, ile klientów kupi mój produkt.

Kramlich describes his work in human terms: "It's all about communication and bringing people together, allowing them to talk on their terms. That's huge. You shouldn't need 30GB of RAM to run all your chat clients. Communications run on network effects.

"If the majority of your friends use a tool and you don’t like it, your friends will have to take an extra step to include you in the conversation. That forces people to choose between their friends and the tools that suit them best."

I agree with him about network effects and I want to add something here about switching costs. You might join an messaging service because of network effects (you want to talk to the users who are already there), but you *stay* because of switching costs.

If you quit a service, you quit the friends who use it. If those friends matter a lot to you, then the service operator can do pretty terrible things to you (like invading your privacy) and you'll still stick around.

Multiprotocol clients like Pidgin attack those switching costs head on, letting you escape a service provider's walled garden and still pass messages to the people who aren't ready to leave yet. Not only does this make your life better, it makes their life better, too.

Because when it's easy to leave a service - when the switching costs are low - the service has to worry about losing users, and that limits how badly they can abuse the users that stay behind.

Most of the time when you say "theory" you actually mean "hypothesis". Just saying.

#TIL Firefox address bar filters[1] respect Multi-Account Containers[2].

When you open a new tab and write part of another tab's title followed by '%', it will only be offered as completion item if the other tab belongs to the same container.

Another great video by Louis Rossmann highlighting the value of repair culture. When you consider buying a tool, consider how hard it will be to repair. It will save your wallet in the long run!
