Tekstene fra BBS-undergrunnen inkluderer bombeoppskrifter funnet opp av tenåringer i 80-årene etter å ha lest en kjemibok. Tror min avveining mellom kulturhistorie og "har ikke lyst til å hoste dette" blir at jeg bare sletter de avsnittene.

Se forøvrig BBS: The Documentary episode 6 for mer om miljøet som laget disse tekstene. youtube.com/watch?v=lvRQhrhSem

@fyksen @bjoernstaerk Disse dilemmaene må tech-skribentene tørre å snakke mer om! Det er ubehagelige tema fordi ingen har gode svar på de vanskelige spørsmålene, og det enkleste er å ignorere alt som har med produksjonen av apparatene våre å gjøre og heller fokusere på megapiksler.

Min OnePlus5 som jeg kjøpte brukt i slutten av 2017 er fortsatt en ypperlig telefon!

Jeg skriver om Fairphone og virkelighetsfjerne mobilanmeldere som tror at megapiksler er viktigere enn holdbarhet og produksjonsforhold. aftenposten.no/meninger/kronik

hey everybody. hope you're having a great day! i'm just taking a moment to upload this photo from rehearsal with my Christian LARP synthwave band polycule study group.

Me, a scientist in a sci-fi movie: ...this metal doesn't correspond to anything known on the periodic table. It's completely alie- oh wait no never mind there it is, never mind guys, I found it.

Dette blir min neste laptop når den kommer for salg i Europa! Det kan være jeg venter til de tilbyr Ryzen-prosessor. Veldig gøy at oppgraderbarhet begynner bli trendy igjen! youtu.be/XFrJcjCbCA8

Spørsmålet for de som vil fortsette norsk oljeleting som før er ikke bare om de er villige til å ignorere de gode argumentene mot, men om de er villig til å vedde på at _alle andre_ også kommer til å ignorere dem.

Can the so-called "Greatest laptop of all time" still hold that title almost a decade after release? Let's find out.

I think these two are my favorite reunion

The true mRNA vaccines theft isn't entrepreneur-inventors who face robbery by the public sector - rather, those "entrepreneurs" have enjoyed billions in public subsidies, and now insist they owe nothing in return.

So much public investment went into the covid vaccines that it's hard to account for it all. The GAO thinks that Uncle Sam coughed up $18-23b in direct subsidies. BARDA pumped in $19.3b.

Surprised by how little attention has been paid to the fact that EU carbon price is breaking record highs - after the 2008 crisis it was reduced to basically zero, after the Covid crisis, it has reached 55 euros per tonne.

To put into perspective how big this is - the target was to reach 23 euros by 2030.

This is massively good news!

the optimal way to eat a banana is to fell the banana tree before the banana has had time to grow & eat the tree instead. efficiency, people. you need to be there yesterday to make it in the big leagues. get that grind. think fast and think hard. 3d chess

as we talk about the morality of vaccine patents

i think it is a nice time to also remember historical precident

jonas salk did not patent the polio vaccine. he went out of his way to make sure it was not patented.

he never got rich. he actively made sure he didn't get rich off of it.

but that history is full of stories about how for the rest of his life, jonas salk did not have to ever pay for a beer in any bar in this country. he would get on airplanes and once somebody recognized his name, the entire damn plane would stand up and clap for him. he constantly had hotel rooms comped, meals for free at restaurants, thus and so.

because he was surrounded by people who knew he had saved their children from having to ever consider the fear of an iron lung, and were overwhelmingly grateful for it.

he was always modest and demure when recognized thusly. but i think that when people start saying "well why else would someone make a vaccine, if not to get paid for it and hold the patent", i think it is good to remember these stories. the world did not punish jonas salk for not patenting the polio vaccine. the world loved him for it. maybe not in the structures that billionaires are most used to. but they did love him for it, in small ways, in humble ways, on the individual level.

Ooh .. snublet over det gamle tekstarkivet mitt fra 90-årene. Artikler og bøker jeg lastet ned via BBS-er, Usenet og den tidlige webben. Alt fra Aeschylus til vitsesamlinger og Usenet-FAQ-er. Dette må jeg jo få lagt ut. Kulturhistorie.
