Update 30 Nov:
The French government has decided to "totally rewrite" part of a new controversial security law that has sparked nationwide protests, amid a raging debate over police violence and accountability.
The move, interpreted as a climbdown, was announced by parliamentary leaders from the ruling majority dominated by President Emmanuel Macron's LREM (La République en Marche) movement.
The measure known as "Article 24", part of a “global security” law, would make it an offence to film and identify police officers online if there is intent to harm -- sparking fears that it might enable police to act with impunity.
The government will propose "a complete new rewrite" of the contested article, said the LREM's parliamentary leader Christophe Castaner at a news conference on Monday.
"Sécurité globale - Proposition de loi"
I. – Le paragraphe 3 du chapitre IV de la loi du 29 juillet 1881 sur la liberté de la presse est complété par un article 35 quinquies ainsi rédigé :
« Art. 35 quinquies. – Sans préjudice du droit d’informer, est puni d’un an d’emprisonnement et de 45 000 euros d’amende le fait de diffuser, par quelque moyen que ce soit et quel qu’en soit le support, dans le but manifeste qu’il soit porté atteinte à son intégrité physique ou psychique, l’image du visage ou tout autre élément d’identification, autre que son numéro d’identification individuel, d’un agent de la police nationale, d’un militaire de la gendarmerie nationale ou d’un agent de police municipale lorsque ces personnels agissent dans le cadre d’une opération de police. »
It is a great pleasure to me to share here the link to a twin post -- a post written by @wim_v12e and I, published on both our blogs:
WHY a twin post, and WHAT is it all about?
Answer is the same! It's "Daffodils", our first music-poetical collaboration ^_^
@Eidon wrote a new composition and he asked me to recite a poem and so a new track was born: "Daffodils"!
Il mio amico Wim ed io abbiamo realizzato un brano assieme: "Daffodils", ispirato alla famosa poesia 'I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud" di William Wordsworth.
E' stata davvero una bellissima esperienza, e l'abbiamo celebrata scrivendo un post "gemello": appare infatti sia sul blog di Wim,
che sul mio:
I post forniscono anche vari particolari tecnici su come musica e voci siano state create.
Ecco dunque la voce di Wim che declama il bel poema
e su #funkwhale.it :
E' un primo brano che spero sarà presto seguito da altri esperimenti di musica e poesia!
> many companies backing the RISC-V project, including giants like Western Digital, have been open-sourcing their chip designs as wellI had forgotten that they did!
"Microsoft bought GitHub for the access to the legions of developers who use GitHub’s code repository products so they can be guided into the Microsoft developer environment, where the real money is made."
So if you have a free GitHub account and are not into Microsoft products, then you are a cost to the company.
Also worth adding that in terms of general "why benefits" there was a significant discussion among early economists on that subject back in 19th century. One of the most systematic voices on that topic was... Adam Smith, who is today associated with laissez-faire market - incorrectly, and mostly by under-educated neoliberals. In his "Inquiry ..." he lays ideas that today would be probably classified as "socialism", especially in the US. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/3300/3300-h/3300-h.htm#chap35
What if I told you that fixating on reasons why the world is awful is bad for your mental health.
