@marsxyz I thought this was a joke related to the Kripke character from Big Bang Theory. Nevermind, then. :)

Long, good, disconcerting read: "Robot-soldiers, stealth jets and drone armies: the future of war"

(Note: I've linked to Outline to get around The Financial Times paywall.)

"All 16,000 buses in the fast-growing Chinese megacity [Shenzhen] are now electric, and soon all 22,000 taxis will be too"

That is impressive AF. 👏🏻


"The Digital Maginot Line" is an very, very good explanation and roundup of the current information war. Long, precise, important. Absolute must-read.


Working FIDO U2F support for Safari! This is good news. github.com/Safari-FIDO-U2F/Saf

Yes, it's not "native" U2F support but I'll take what I can get.

Ich musste lachen. Städte sollten Autos ähnlich wie Baugrund besteuern: nach Grundfläche.

> Auf die Idee, wonach die Städte sich den bizarren Autowünschen anpassen müssten, kann man nur kommen, wenn man das seit Jahrtausenden kaum größer gewordene menschliche Hirn ständig andieselt.


I really like Alexis C. Madrigal's take on this. It's relatable and thoughtful. Good read.

First come, first serve: w/ my subscription of the Washington Post comes each month a free 30-day digital subscription for me to give away. I get no kickback, mind — it's just part of my already paid-for sub. Have fun!

@McLustig Wild. Ich brauche nicht viel Zeug, aber ich mag trotzdem Platz haben.

That screenshot of the NASA JPL livestream is basically a room full of redshirts right now. Tempting fate much? ;)

Freunde von mir kämpfen um ihr Tiny House hier in München:

> Iris und Christian Vilsmaier träumen von einem Leben ohne allzu viel Ballast in einem autarken, fahrbaren Wohnmodul. Zuvor aber gilt es, die Hürden des strengen deutschen Baurechts zu überwinden und ein geeignetes städtisches Grundstück zu finden

Mir persönlich wäre es nix, aber ich finde es irre inspirierend, wie sie sich in das Thema reinknien! 💚
