Thanks @mplammers for the great suggestion to watch the new Netflix documentary: The Social Dilemma.

It's well-made, combining a documentary with real story line to really convey the information via a story. They introduce concepts in a very clear way, and even though it might not be new for people who have already dived into the subject, their analogies and metaphors will enhance your vocabulary and reasoning about social media greatly!

I recommend it to everyone!

Interessante tool van de NOS: Hier gaat het geld van de verdwenen studiefinanciering naar toe.

Deze is voor mijn faculteit (EEMCS) van de Universiteit Twente:

De meeste plannen klinken eigenlijk best wel prima :)

Woo! Signal desktop now also has a videocall function! Very nice =)

Too bad you can't see the messages while calling now though, but I suppose that will be changed soon enough.

πŸ‡³πŸ‡± Aanrader! Vorige week was er een superinteressante lezing van Dr. Geert Jan van Oldenborgh getiteld: "Ander klimaat, meer extreem weer?"

Hierin vertelt hij over de relatie tussen die twee, en hoe ze weersextremen soms wel, soms niet kunnen linken aan klimaatverandering.

Één van de inzichten was dat we het altijd hebben over 1,5 of 2 graden opwarming, maar dat die zeer ongelijk verdeeld is over de aardbol. 2 graden wereldwijd is 4 in Nederland en 6 op de noordpool!

Interessante opinie van Sander Schimmelpenninck over social media: "De twee slechtst denkbare groepen mensen zitten veel op sociale media: mensen met te veel tijd en journalisten. Het resultaat is even voorspelbaar als bedroevend:..."

World Press Photo 2020, by Yasuyoshi Chiba (AFP).

Khartoum, Sudan, on 19 June 2019

Chiba: "The simple fact that people will recite poems for protesting in such a difficult circumstance."

β€œIt’s a picture of a young person taking a stand against the authorities,” - jury chairman Lekgetho Makola.

All nominated photo's share a trend: young people worldwide are actively shaping their future. The youth confront those in power when their progress and future is threatened.

Question, please help πŸ™‚
For the lonely granny's that are not tech-savvy enough to work with a laptop or a tablet, what is a good and safe setup to allow for videocalls?

Own ideas:
#1 Laptop with teamviewer, where the granny is in a secure jitsi-room continously and family can join with a password

#2 Viewclix?

#3 Komp?

The Intercept about Zoom:
A recent analysis of Zoom's encryption techniques, with key servers in China and 128-bit AES-ECB. Also, their reactions and recent changes.

It highlights why investing in cyber security is more than asking developers to encrypt traffic.

Personally, I like to see this 'textbook knowledge' from my master (CybSec @ utwente) in articles like this :) Makes you appreciate courses like Security & Crypto, even though I already failed it twice... :')

Thank you for your participation in this study! We really appreciate it. Please share this survey with everyone you know to help us learn more: covid19-survey.org and share this survey on social media using the hashtag

Kurzgesagt is my favourite YouTube channel for a reason.

It is a great source for getting useful knowledge in the form of videos, which are also fun to watch.

Now a great video about the coronavirus: youtube.com/watch?v=BtN-goy9VO

They have a lot of watch-worthy videos, on very diverse interesting subjects.

Research conducted on 1391 children treated at the Wuhan Children’s Hospital, the only center assigned for treating infected children under 16 years of age in Wuhan.

Interessant: Hoogleraar Koreaanse geschiedenis Remco Breuker over de context van de aanpak van de coronacrisis in Zuid-Korea:

Ondertussen is het wel duidelijk dat je thuis moet blijven toch? Doe dat dan ook. Hou je afspraken digitaal, zodat het coronavirus zich minder snel verspreidt en niet alle kwetsbare mensen tegelijk naar het ziekenhuis moeten. Anders raakt het daar vol en gaat een deel van die mensen dood.

Dat kun jij dus voorkomen.
Door thuis te blijven.

Hoi! Zaterdagnacht slaap ik met de Sheltersuit Foundation op de Oude Markt in Enschede.

Daarvoor wil ik genoeg geld ophalen om één Sheltersuit te doneren voor een dakloze. Ik zou dankbaar zijn als je me daarbij wilt helpen :-)

Bekijk mijn actiepagina hier:
sleepout.sheltersuit.com/deeln

Naast dat ze concreet mensen helpen, maken ze ook het probleem van dakloosheid zichtbaar, en delen ze de persoonlijke verhalen van daklozen.

Sheltersuit: weer een reden om te zijn!
