Keep hearing, "New mac sucks, but I don't have other choices because Windows is just awful."

a) Windows is actually a working system with loads of software and quite a good development environment for almost everything.

b) Today's Linux offers everything Mac can provide in terms of a development environment, arguably better, esp. regarding package management and backend development.

Just did some remote development 34,000 feet above ground using visual studio code, some lag in ssh parts and file operations but tolerable. A really good remote development implementation.

Not that I like Huawei much, but the incident reflects on the problem of our reliance on closed frameworks and infrastructures - once the provider decides you are not following rules, or they don't benefit enough, your entire product is in jeopardy.

Moreover, ponder for a moment how many close-sourced services we rely on for developing *open source* software, GitHub, Travis CI,... It is not a rarity that some big companies just close projects or shutdown APIs randomly.

我不喜欢华为,特别是华为的市场部门。但是我觉得这件事情充分展现了依赖非开放架构的问题:一旦市场统治者决定你不符合游戏规则,或者是仅仅觉得他们在产品上收益不够,你的整个服务都可能瞬间崩塌。

而可怕的是,今天的开源产业链严重的依赖非开源的服务,Github, Travis CI, .... 哪天这些项目出了问题的话,整个开源世界都会受到影响。大公司随意砍产品或者关掉API的事情不是一起两起了。

张凯那篇文章本来没看,今天那篇韭菜文出来之后,我看了三遍原文,也没看出来作者哪里说的误导读者了。作者讲了他当年面对疫苗奶粉的无奈,讲了当年其他记者和律师的遭遇。虽然结尾有感慨他自己也没办法执业,但是哪里有说他自己是因为这个事情不能年检的呢?

文章本身的意思不算难懂,疫苗问题得不到有效解决,我们应该反思更深层次的问题。倒是这篇韭菜文,不管文章讲的有没有道理,扣个帽子,攻击作者的身份,臆测作者的动机,一副“你谈疫苗可以,敢攻击伟大的中华社会就要打翻在地,踏上一只脚永世不得翻身”的尽头,不由得让人思考,或许这样的文章恰恰是疫苗问题彻底解决不了的原因吧。

我其实不是很介意秀恩爱,但是秀恩爱拜托发点好看的照片要不然把我屏蔽掉,不要我一刷朋友圈就看到一张让我想吐的大头照好不好。

:-( 辣鸡 Twitter !看到一条很棒的推文,想打心的时候,界面就突然跳到时间线顶上了!

专利之所以有期限,有强制许可,有类别区分,有不能申请的领域,就是为了让知识产权帮助社会进步,而不是反过来;让知识产权鼓励创新,而不是促进垄断。

这句话本身并没有什么错。摩托罗拉那么多手机专利,要求禁售iPhone还是被驳回,Apple抢劫了摩托罗拉吗?

原文的context是中国对美的知识产权支出逆差多少,增长多少,要解决这个问题要看wto规则。美国的指控是说中国政府的市场开放和投资有“要求贸易商转移技术的潜规则”。不能不谈具体争议到底是什么,抓住一句话就YY出一个“政府鼓励抢劫”的形象。
少有人喜欢中国政府,但这并不意味着他们的每句话都是错的

有的事情,查一查就知道。2015年,美国对欧盟出口平均支付1.4%的关税,欧盟对美出口平均支付1.6%的关税(t.co/JPknY8w5RY),欧盟对美轿车进口有高关税,美国对欧洲皮卡也收了高关税。一群人不看数据,嚷嚷着“欧洲自己不愿意大家都零关税还反对贸易战”,好像美国真的吃了多大亏一样。

* Hmmmm, maybe editing my configuration files?

In case you have not heard, China moved to remove the two-term limit of its Presidency last week.

Right now you could not tweet "no", "I disagree", or "Fiorentino" (notice the 'no' inside it?) on Chinese social networks.

Welcome to the Brave New World, people.

"In tennis time waits for no one except Roger Federer."

On the problem I have with Conan.io - a c++ package manager with a pip dependency? Seriously?

共和党天天骂Obamacare闭门造车,结果500页的法案一次没听证过,最后一天参议员才拿到法案文本,晚上七点钟还在改方案。当初号称增加一点赤字都是对下一代犯罪,现在轻轻松松就增加1万亿赤字。为了阿拉斯加的参议员的票,把阿拉斯加的石油开采一起放到税改方案里投票。号称要堵carried interest loophole,结果为了讨好lobbyist反而给基金减税。为了满足参议院预算协商的要求,个人的税收减免从5年后开始phase out, 最后变成加个人所得税给公司所得税减免买单。

很难找到一个各方面更扯的立法过程了。¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi, Welcome to Cats, a private instance of the federated social network Mastodon. The name comes from the personality of cats - social, yet somewhat independent, without a single monopoly, which is a good analogy of ideal social network in my eyes.
