Okay, corrected that Word thing. That was the easy part. I need to add a lot more activities to the Internet course. A lot more Google fetch quests. But how would I get the students to get the document to me? Oh wait, they've not even done word yet. Hmm. They've not done email yet either. Just Windows basics and their screen reader course. I mean you'd think that'd be enough but I'm trying to be fair here. I thought about maybe a flash drive, but that'd be like, a lot of work to just transfer a file. Hmm. Maybe we can get a network drive up and going or something. The students need more practice with File Explorer, the monster that it is, and copying and pasting files anyway. Ugh I so wish it were as simple as Mac or Linux. Just land in the home folder and move out from there. But oh no there's like expandable sections and the filesystem isn't laid out simply. Anyway, yeah maybe have them open notepad and write in that, save it and transfer it through the network or something. Or, *sigh* I could have them start uploading their work to Moodle earlier. Ugh I'm gonna hate having to go into Moodle, and push my hand all the way up to my shoulder in Moodle junk just to grab a file upload. Yeah maybe the network drive would be good enough.

More whining from European telcos about the need for large tech companies to pay their “fair share” … even though the telcos are all making profits already!

And… all of the large tech companies are *already* paying significantly for network infrastructure.

And… it is the *customers* of the telcos who are wanting to access these services.

Eish, I just can't get used to #Chrome popping up new #downloads at the top-right, in a balloon which disappears after a few seconds. I miss them showing up in a bar at the bottom and staying there permanently.

Else I forget what I have downloading, or I miss the little balloon in the top right (#RetinitisPigmentosa, you know, so no peripheral vision: #accessibility is important), and then I click the "Download" link multiple times because I think it hasn't worked.

Mind you, once I do know there's a download happening, I always press CTRL+J to see all the details, because I still feel lost if I don't know what the transfer rate in Kb/s or Mb/s is (#geek alert). I'm still miffed that OSes started hiding that info from users, because in my mind it's critical for computer users to have an intrinsic understanding of that stuff. :/

Ich glaube kein Maulkorb (also nicht über das übliche Maß hinaus wenn der Verleger die Richtung vorgibt). Beim Öffentlichen Rundfunk dann halt Politik und Rundfunkrat der ja nun nicht wirklich die Bevölkerung darstellt, beim Rest wirkt dann halt das KiPo / Terror-Märchen.

Ich vermute eher grundsätzlich:

Das #Internet (und davon eine Funktion die Chatprogramme) haben zum Bedeutungsverlust von Rundfunk und Presse geführt. Die Gatekeeper Funktion für den gesellschaftlichen Diskurs ist seit ein 1...2 Jahrzehnten verloren gegangen. Dem trauert man hinterher. Alles was dem Internet und dem direkten Austausch in größeren Gruppen der Bevölkerung schadet ist erwünscht.

Incel lexicon:
K-pop > "god":

#DigitalHumanities #Linguistics #internet #dh #kpop #incels #history #socialmedia #mediastudies

Popular incel Memes (left to right): Virgin, Chad, Becky and Stacy. The 'Virgin' represents the incel, and is depicted with his head down, a thin stature and pale skin [20]. He is characterized as inferior to a 'Chad', who is brutish and unintelligent [20]. 'Becky' represents an undesirable woman, who is educated and outspoken [21]. Lastly, 'Stacy' is the female counterpart to Chad. She is represented as promiscuous and shallow [21].
Zipf distribution of terms that end with "-cel" in the incel corpus. The above distribution shows the frequency of each term that ends in "-cel" in the incel corpus vs its rank. Some of the points have been labelled with their respective "-cel" term. The highest ranked and most frequently occurring term is "incel". "Volcel", or "voluntary celibate" is another popular instance of "-cel" terms. The diversity of these terms is indicative of user identification with the incel movement.

False Friends - HTML Elements which are also Top Level Domains

In linguistics, a "False Friend" is a word which looks similar in multiple languages, but means something different in each of them. For example the word "gift" in English means "a present", in German means "poison", and in Norwegian it means "married".

The Internet uses Top Level Domains (TLD) to organise information into hierarchies. This website uses .mobi - you may also be familiar with .com for commercial entities, or .de for German pages.

The World Wide Web uses HyperText Markup Language (HTML) to structure web pages. For example <footer> to display a footer, or <ol> for an ordered list.

There is absolutely no relationship between the two sets of entities. But, just for fun, are there any HTML elements which happen to be false friends of the TLDs?

Before we go any further, have a quick think. How many do you reckon there are? Are there some which spring to mind immediately?

Obviously, the first port of call is AI. Its mastery of all things means that we can get an accurate answer in a nanosecond.


Right, let's compare the Element Reference with the Root Zone Database.

There are fifteen current HTML elements which have a match with a TLD. And a couple which are deprecated. Here they are:

🔊 <audio> .audio
🇧🇷 <br> .br - Brazil
🗂 <data> .data
🇭🇷 <hr> .hr - Croatia
🇱🇮 <li> .li - Liechtenstein
🔗 <link> .link
🗺 <map> .map
<menu> .menu
🔎 <search> .search
👉 <select> .select
🧥 <style> .style
🇹🇩 <td> .td - Chad
🇹🇭 <th> .th - Thailand
🇹🇷 <tr> .tr - Türkiye
📹 <video> .video

And the ones which are no longer valid HTML:

🖕 <center> .center
🇹🇹 <tt> .tt - Trinidad and Tobago

Is that more than you expected? Less? Are there others which you think should be TLDs? Should HTML get a <uk> element post-Brexit? Have I missed any?

Book Review: The Internet Con - How to Seize the Means of Computation by Cory Doctorow

This is beloved firebrand Cory doing what he does best. Rallying the rebellion with righteous indignation and a no-nonsense approach to fixing technology's ills.

If you've read any of his fiction, or listened to him talk, you'll know what to expect. An overview of how big tech has screwed us over and the consequences of those machinations. Unlike other writers, Doctorow provides eminently practical solutions.

Now, some of the solutions you'll be unable to implement unless you're an elected official. So now's a great time to write to your representative and ask them to take action.

He is relentless at pointing out the hypocrisy of big tech - fighting to carve out exceptions for themselves which they then deny to others. We get a full-on historical lesson about the VCR and how the fight for the right to party infringe copyright was won and lost several times.

I spent many years working inside the UK Government pushing the agenda of open standards and interoperability. So it was particularly gratifying to read:

Governments can—and should—have rules about interoperability in their procurement policies. They should require companies hoping to receive public money to supply the schematics, error codes, keys and other technical matter needed to maintain and improve the things they sell and provide to our public institutions.

That's what I did! It is getting better - but it is work that will never be finished.

Similarly, he accurately describes the problems with Standards Development Organisations:

standardization meetings and forensic examinations of firewall errors—is supremely dull. It combines the thrill of bookkeeping with the excitement of Robert’s Rules of Order.

I've been a member of many and - yes - that's exactly what it is like. But, I take slight issue at some of his suggestions on this topic. The ideal SDO has to be a compromise. No one gets to walk away entirely happy. This is the eternal "Devil's Bargain" - we all exchange a little bit of what we want in order to get closer to what we need. I'm not sure there's any way around that without centrally mandating specific technical choices.

Indeed, he goes on to say:

We won’t fix anything by demanding the impossible and shouting “nerd harder!” when tech companies fail to produce it. Nor will we fix anything by taking the tech industry at its word when it tells us that effective policies are flat-out impossible.

I'm a boring practicalist. At some point we need to do what works, even if it is ideologically unpleasant.

One of the things that Cory does well is "steelman" his opponents' arguments. He's excellent at taking on some big topics (CSAM and Blockchain, for example) and giving their proponents the benefit of the doubt1. And then he forensically takes them apart.

Cory's writing style is like his spoken style. The poetic rhythm is almost palpable - as is his love for sarcastic asides. It makes this - admittedly short - book supremely quick to read. I feel greedy asking for more - but the book does end rather abruptly.

If you work in tech, or go anywhere near tech-policy, this is a must read. It gives you the history of how we got here, explains the problems happening now, and warns about an uncertain future.

  1. OK, he does say "It’s an established fact that 99.83 percent of all conversations about blockchain are nonconsensual." Which is a bit uncharitable. It's, like, 99.73% max! ↩

Oh, I'm seeing some mainstream coverage of the Internet Safety Bill and they're saying things like "It's a step forwards" and "We have to make young people safe" and "The internet is an addiction" and "children need to be protected by this bill" and "this bill will make the online world safer"

They have found space for nobody saying anything bad about this bill at all.

What a load of blatant crazy people talking crazy stuff.

The bill is a terrible awful law which will do nothing to protect anyone while being onerous on service providers. It it unenforceable, poorly defined, will drive internet business outside the UK where we have less control of it, and will expose people to more dangers online.

If you use the internet from the UK you better be prepared to be more spied upon by business and stalked by the state than ever before. Maybe get your ID out every time you wanna leave Facebook.

If you run an internet business in the UK you better be prepared to move abroad. Though not to the US or the EU, they have similar terrible awful plans.

But you would not get that impression watching the BBC this morning at all.
