Eigentlich find ich Ö1 Matrix eine sehr gute und informative Sendung, aber letztens sind mir fast die Augen aus dem Kopf gefallen, weil ich sie so heftig rollen musste:

"Im Jahr 2016 wurden online so viele Pornos angesehen, dass die Daten 194 Milliarden USB-Sticks füllen würden. Aneinandergereiht würden sich diese USB-Speicher um den Mond wickeln lassen."

I don't know how to pronounce it, but I love the the meaning of the word #Cwtch

It is also the name of the new decentralized, asynchronous and metadata resistant multi-party communication tool by #OpenPrivacy. It is based on ricochet and is built on tor onion services. Yesterday they published the open alpha: openprivacy.ca/blog/2019/02/14

Thomas Bernhards "Städtebeschimpfungen" sind gerade auf Ö1 zu hören. Sein langjähriger Lektor hat diese aus verschiedensten Texten zusammengetragen und in ein Hörspiel übertragen, in dem auch Reaktionen von Lokalpolitiker*innen und Journalist*innen zu hören sind.


"Die schönsten Gegenden Österreichs haben immer die meisten Nazis angezogen: Salzburg, Gmunden, Altaussee"

@tobbsn issue happens for everyone, but fix is on the way.

Is it just on my devices, or has difficulties with decrypting video URL signatures again?

AFAIK the last time this happened, Google changed something in the way YouTube works.

I like this text reminiscing the golden times of p2p music sharing. I already forgot about a lot of them.


But in the end it celebrates proprietary streaming services instead of discussing alternative models of sharing ressources with artists :\

Do you know of any good open source image editing apps for ?

Maybe I haven't tried the right ones yet, but all I've seen so far are very limited. I'm looking for stuff like editing curves or color channels, I've loved that in the default gallery app way back on the old cyanogenmod.

Do you know of any good ones?

"Block’hood is a neighborhood-building simulator that celebrates the diversity and experimentation of cities and the unique ecosystems within them. Budding city planners will have access to 90+ building blocks to arrange and combine and to create unique neighborhoods and discover the implications of their designs. The game will embark on a story of ecology and understanding as additional resources are always needed to unlock new blocks, configurations, and combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks by making sure each unit doesn’t run out of resources and become a strain on the complimentary units around them."
