A young #Somalian man left home to escape recruitment by a jihadist group. He journeyed for nearly a year—faced torture in Libyan slave camp, saw many of his fellow travellers die & crossed the #Mediterranean in a rubber boat. This is his story:
occrp.org/en/37-ccblog/ccblog/

Said was enjoying a February sunset and drinking tea with his family in his small Somalian village when the local imam approached his hut with two guards with an instruction: he was to join the Salafist jihadist group al-Shabab.

Concert by robots playing drums and guitars.. Check! The band is called Compressorhead :P

The left one, called Fingers, actually has 78 fingers.. No wonder it can play so fast!


De marketing van de UT is nog niet altijd effectief. Waarom staat hier niemand bij? Zonde! Ook een student zou al het verschil maken! Bij Stork! in Hengelo :)

@utwente , @Atilla_Kerpisci , waren er geen studenten nanotechnologie te vinden? ;) Nu moest ik net een verhaaltje improviseren bij bezoekers die meer wilden weten!

En @designlab zou hier misschien ook niet misstaan, als moderne versie van de Twentse maakindustrie?

Interesting article by @Anna about problems within the #Mastodon dev and product-dev process. I actually see many parallels to what happens in a lot of other projects based on open and/or agile methodology.

I personally come to different evaluations of the described conflicts, and to other conclusions, too.

Development of a software product, that really makes a difference, needs clear vision and focus.

Thanks a lot for the reactions and boosts! This is clearly not easy, so feel free to share new ideas!

This might relate to the issue I'm having that for people who are not really into sustainability, it's easier to convince them with arguments and let them change behaviour, than for people who are not into privacy, to convince them it's important and change behaviour. It seems it's a lot harder to show / see negative effects of no privacy, than show / see that the climate is going nuts. Hmmm..

question:
How could you visualise privacy in a small logo or icon?

Boosts very much appreciated.

It's for a small icon for personal use, but when I look for privacy images online, I see more security related icons. They don't necessarily reflect what I find important aspects of privacy, such as autonomy and knowing what's happening under the hood. Now that's probably also quite hard to put into an icon, but hey, that's why I'm asking :D
