Watch this video! :)

I thought this was a very nice idea for a topic. But if people don’t follow the two simple rules above, it’s no different than just going to the main page of Youtube and letting Google’s secret algorithms recommend stuff for you. There is no shortage of funny/cute/sexy/whatever videos on the internet. If an accurate description is not given, the links are really just clickbait.

I do, however, think that comments about the videos should be allowed in the topic, provided that quotes of what post is being commented on are given.

How about @moderators delete posts which don’t have an adequate intro? It wastes a lot of people’s time checking the topic to find another lazy post.

Open Rights Group Con (ORGCON) livestream from London. I haven’t caught it all (it’s long) but there’s an interesting debate between Nate Cordoza (formerly of EFF, now, for some reason at Facebook) and Ian Levy of GCHQ around backdoors starting at 1:50 5:17. Basically, Levy’s saying, listen we can easily hack you all at any time, how about us all coming together agreeing how we should best do it. Snowden’s meant to be on at some stage too.

“The Mother of All Demos is a name given retrospectively to Douglas Engelbart’s December 9, 1968, demonstration of experimental computer technologies that are now commonplace. The live demonstration featured the introduction of the computer mouse, video conferencing, teleconferencing, hypertext, word processing, hypermedia, object addressing and dynamic file linking, bootstrapping, and a collaborative real-time editor.”

Hopefully we can see his ideas of a world brain evolve on the Safe Network.

Doug, so many decades ahead of everyone.

Anyone know if Ted Nelson is aware of Safe btw?

Another interesting interview from ORGCon - this one by data scientist Jack Poulson who quit Google after finding out about Project Dragonfly, the secret censorship project it was working on for China. Having graduated as a maths wizz, he declined to go into nuclear weapons design and oil companies for ethical reasons, despite the big money on offer, yet found himself sharing the “are we the baddies?” meme with colleagues at Don’t be Evil Corp. That nice Mr Gates the philanthropist doesn’t come out too well in this regard either.

Oh, and Ed Snowden’s on at 0:50

The Quantum Internet: a 15 minutes YouTube video of the PBS Space Time channel from today. It describes how to communicate securely on a quantum channel using 2 entangled qubits. Repeaters are possible.

If you can get this (need to be UK or VPN) watch it. A reconstruction of the Apollo 11 moon landing with real audio from the astronauts and ground control. Amazing.

I think this system is really cool, and it’s intriguing to think of the ecosystem it builds and the interrelation mechanisms within it.

However, I can’t shed the feeling that the value proposition is somehow dated. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to study this system for future apps on SAFE Network.

All things is very relative, but still, every phenomenon has a scientific explanation. The most important rule which I received from this life is that the more good you do and the more you think about good, the better your life and the more positive it is.

I find this similar to when someone doesn’t want to answer a phone call because they weren’t asked/let known before the call happens, some things just can’t be announced!

I do not see it that way. A phone call is really quite different.

A person’s time is valuable and a phone call can be answered and dispatched as quickly as I wish. A video though may require spending upwards 1/2 hour just in case the interesting part was towards the end, without any information then how is the person to know what is the interesting part.

When someone puts a link to a video without telling you what it is about then how is that person going to know if its worth watching and not using up their valuable time. Do you go to the movie theater without knowing what movie you are going to watch?

The person who posts a video is wishing others to enjoy the video they thought was good, so why not tell them why you thought it was good and get them excited enough to view it. Doesn’t have to be a summary, but just enough to inform. One or 2 sentences is very often enough.

In this context/topic I agree/understand the need for a description. But a reason to not give a (long) explanation: no spoilers, not taking away the surprise effect. But probably most who read/watch this topic don’t want to be ‘surprised’ with videos they have no time for.

Correct, no need for long explanation, or spoilers/surprise ruin, but enough to make us want to watch it

Quite lengthy, and I haven’t watched it all yet, but:

Look back to how things used to work. One OS per app (game). Today, everything is buggy and need constant updates. It didn’t used to be like this. Apps and games used to be SOLID.

I feel kind of excited by the vision this guy paints, getting rid of all these layers of junk, and loading each app directly with it’s own minimal OS. The simplicity, the security.
And it got me thinking about SAFE OS.
