Le #FabLab de Neuchâtel a lancé une campagne de crowdfunding pour introduire “un abonnement (très) accessible financièrement et donnant un accès (quasi) illimité au FabLab et à son parc de machines.”

Pour CHF 180.–/an (hors coûts matières,) l’Abo donnerait accès à toutes les machines et permettrait de suivre les formations nécessaires gratuitement.

Il manque à peu près 50 personnes et il reste 20 jours, alors foncez!

Wie @wdraktuell schreibt, werden an der Ruhr Universität Bochum 380 Stellen gestrichen, um die gestiegenen Energiepreise zu kompensieren. Es ist beschämend, dass Universitäten nun die langjährigen Versäumnisse und Fehler der Energie- und Außenpolitik von SPD und CDU ausbaden müssen. Ob es nun auch an anderen Universitäten zu solchen Streichungen kommt, hängt am politischen Handeln in den Ländern und Bund.

Book Review: IBM and the Holocaust

Published to extraordinary praise, this provocative international bestseller details the story of IBM's strategic alliance with Nazi Germany. IBM and the Holocaust provides a chilling investigation into corporate complicity, and the atrocities witnessed raise startling questions that throw IBM's wartime ethics into serious doubt.

The station is the last pre-war station with the original architecture and with its cubist elements of Art Deco is now a listed monument.

@martin Yes, I agree that it's not good to rely on self declarations of "I'm accurate, trust me". Conversely, we shouldn't trust checkers that might catch superficial inaccuracies, such as fake references, but not deeper flaws such as invented research studies. We need new hybrid neuro-symbolic AI models, new independent evidence-checking systems, and a new critical literacy of AI. Big asks!

If you run a small website and currently get DDoSed by the Fediverse, here's a quick fix for Apache:

Just a brief project update this week as I do final prep for beta testing my own I7 game. Did you know: it's been over a year since I made my first post? It's been a good time.

Basically, JSON has nothing of those things that make XML great. It is oversimplifying the problem that it wants to solve, leading people to writing incomplete ad-hoc solutions and implementing insecure systems with it.

Other than that, JSON is great.

Very interesting article on “The Myth of Panic.” Measures to keep the population in the dark “to avoid ” are driven by panicking elites who fear that they may lose control. But they are not only unnecessary, but actually counterproductive.


It’s 14:15, and all I’ve done so far today is dealing with political issues :-(
