Former Mozilla exec: Google has sabotaged Firefox for years →

… it’s very hard not to believe or take Nightingale’s comments seriously. Slowly but surely, Google is becoming the new Microsoft, and Chrome is slowly turning into the new IE…

Not just confusing, and i agree that they have grew larger and became the new Microsoft, Google products designed only to be use optimally using Google Chrome.
And yes this is bad, not to mention Microsoft also adopting Chromium for their Microsoft Edge browser, and now Firefox is the browser that use rendering engine other than Chromium.

Can you stop your parents sharing photos of you online? →

Prof Siibak says many parents feel that, as the adult, they are responsible for their child’s wellbeing, and don’t need their child’s permission as long as they believe the photos are not doing any harm.
However, she argues that parents should “absolutely” take their children’s privacy concerns more seriously.

If the ethical way did not stopping you to share your kids online, how about this one, IBM scrapped, scanning photos from Flickr to train their facial recognition software and god knows for what purpose that training could be. Not to mention this kinda challenge, the #10yearschallenge is a great way and a tresure for facial recignition, it can learn about age discrepancies from those people, and we gave them the access freely to our data.

Some people think it’s their rights to post their kids online, but they too have that rights to either posted it or not.

Blogging workflow

Menulis untuk saya, selain sebagai proses belajar, dan juga menyebarkan ilmu, menuangkan apa yang ada dikepala kepada bentuk tulisan, dan memulainya adalah proses yang setidaknya menurut saya adalah proses yang susah, dari ide, pemilihan ide, kemudian membuat tulisan berdasarkan ide tersebut, terkadang dibutuhkan alur kerja, agar tulisan bisa dengan baik ditulis, dimengerti, dengan mengikuti ide, kemudian mungkin memutuskan menulis dalam bahasa apa, misalkan untuk yang berkaitan dengen hal-hal teknikal, kadang saya lebih memilih untuk menggunakan bahasa inggris karena ada beberapa padanan yang terkadang tidak ketemu dalam bahasa indonesia, untuk bahasa indonesia sendiri sebisa mungkin menggunakan ejaan yang disempurnakan, agar lebih mudah dibaca dan future-proof.
