For comparison: I just spent about 2 hours doing chapter 1 of "Web Development with #Clojure Third Edition"'.
This involved me geeking out on all the various tools in between and... I can say I have a broad understanding of the system and a good intuition of its strengths and can already start hacking simple things.
#Haskell's bootstrapping reaaaaally needs to get better.
Every few months I keep coming back to https://haskell-miso.org and think "huh, this looks nice".
Then I spend an hour or so figuring out the tooling, end up giving up and archive it until next time I forget why I'm not using it.
Maybe for next year I should remind people ahead of time that #SysAdminDay is a thing.
But hey, nothing breaks, so nobody bothers me :-p, I'm fine with that too.
So, I got fed up with phabricator's UI for audits, if anyone has to do way too many audits and needs some streamlined batch auditing helper, this might be useful for you:
O.ô Upload Filter + diese Regelung mit Ziel: "[Verpflichtung aller Anbieter ihrer] Plattformen aktiv nach Bildern von Kindesmissbrauch zu durchsuchen", heißt doch AI trainieren und dafür **dementsprechende Datensätze haben**, oder?
Es klingt… Bescheuert.
COVID / Media
Virtually all Spanish Media these days: "SUCCESS, VACCINE MOVES FORWARD!".
Me meanwhile: "nope, wrong framing, people will actually believe that risk is about to magically disappear".
This on the other hand, spot on (and not just for the U.S.):
"Meta" Bemerkung: je später im Leben ich eine Sprache gelernt habe, desto einfacher es mir vorkommt, über persönliches in der Sprache zu sprechen.
Daher, dass es grad Deutsch ist. Evtl wird's doch Italienisch in einem Jahr sein.
Now, I wonder if, like back in 2015, the EU and the US will start rushing to reach an agreement that puts a patch on things and calms public opinion without actually addressing the issues or, you know, just stop giving US companies a comparatively favourable treatment when it comes to data privacy regulations.
I find it interesting that the @POLITICOEurope@twitter.com
article repeats multiple times "The European Commission and U.S. officials maintain the Privacy Shield improves privacy protections."
As if it was worth saving.
What they doesn't mention is that Privacy Shield came to be because Safe Harbour, the thing regulating data transfers before, was also deemed invalid (AKA: this has happened before!)
And well, Privacy Shield wasn't great even in 2016, much less now:
Different ways of reading the same news:
~~"US is not worthy of special treatment regarding data privacy and is to be considered a third country"
~~ "How dares the CJEU put privacy before the economy! Privacy Shield is good!"
