tilde.club user ~droop has a nice blog. If you open his blog you get a few nice instructions on how to enjoy your random internet posts this time. So I followed this advice, and found myself sitting in the train, reading articles I printed yesterday with just large enought letters to not make me squint.
I was reading the first article of the privacy project from the New York Times. It’s an interesting read, as it sheds some light on the data selling industry. This is obviusly not everything bad that happens with data, but is is an start. The fact that ‘normal’ media like the New York Times start to address these issues is a good thing, raising awareness is the one thing that needs to happen in order for privacy to calm down.
I also read this interesting article about a blind programmer, who uses speech sythesis at 400(!!) words a minute to read back code.
