The Internet working on and off anywhere I go in Beijing could be an unintended consequence of overcomplicated censorship rules running on crappy routers ๐Ÿค”

Reddit and Twitter are blocked here in ... Have any Mastodon instances been blocked yet? Are there any instances hosted in China?

There are plenty of these in the streets around our hotel in . I don't know if they still work...

Our hotel in Beijing keeps anti-riot gear right by the front door. Now I feel safer.

Has anyone solved the age old problem of not forgetting you made tea while waiting for it to cool?

I'm not sure why my employer needs 60+ pages of employee handbook just to help fire someone in an at-will state.

Found another pretty good app for studying kanji. It's called, quite uncreatively, Japanese Kanji Study. I like the UI design, especially with the dark theme. It's still lacking SRS, but the author says it's coming soon.

Bad news about #Article13, the copyright directive (which includes Art 13) has passed the council of ministers.

Interesting footnote: if the UK gov had simply abstained (or voted against), the directive would not have passed. Britain represents enough population to form a blocking minority.

However, the British government voted in favour.

The law can still be stopped in the European courts (which is what happened to the data retention directive), but this is much messier and more difficult.

Today's visit to Samsung's HQ was a big success! Looking forward to work together.

Good morning from . I'm here for a bunch of meetings with Samsung and LG, no time for visiting around.

We could look at some success stories like Wikipedia, a volunteer-driven community that reached world scale while fighting spam and abuse effectively. To do so, they created a well-funded, centralized NGO with a staff of ~300 employees and a budget of about 70M. That may seem like a lot of money, but it's about $0.03 per user per year (assuming 1.5B users).

Scott Manley confirmed that it's the interior of the liquid oxygen tank and has some older footage showing how the oxygen starts floating around in zero-G soon after engine cutoff.

After spending the last six weeks looking at data analytics and compiling major annual reports, I'm thinking I'd like to get into learning proper data visualization.

No clue where to start, just been wanting to go farther than what spreadsheets and databases offer me.
