Frank has posted some ventilator service manuals, and gotten cease-and-desist letters from some manufacturers: “Download prohibited by Dräger. Support is not desired,” is a message he posted next to some previously-available repair manuals. In Italy, device manufacturers have threatened to sue makers who have 3D printed parts for medical devices used to treat Covid-19 patients.

#DRM on medical equipment has always been a threat to human health and lives, as well as a violation of our rights, and now DRM on ventilators may actually cost lives: https://u.fsf.org/30n

Anyone else thinks hackatons are a terrible idea?


A group of programmers in my country ( #czech ) decided they'll create #software for #government for free during 48 hours, for free. While that seems cool at first, I think that is in fact a very #bad idea. Why?

Well imagine you want to do the same e.g. with a building. To save the architect's time and money on his salary you tell him to design the building in one hour as best as he can. While you'll immediately save money, the result will likely be a building that's badly designed, will have many issues you'll be paying for during the next decades.

Hackatons, gaming jams etc. are extremely popular because they look cool and save time, but they create terrible results and teach very bad practice, which is driven by today's short-sighted society. The whole history of #engineering taught us that haste makes waste, but nowadays we're abandoning all sanity because of #capitalism, #markets and #consumerism. The result of course is huge #bloat, ugly, wasteful, obscure, unmaintainable, buggy and even dangerous technology. Let's not do this.

Some interesting pointers why Singapore on Thames is unlikely to happen (despite the fantasies of the ERG and their ilk)

Boris Johnson comes to power just as free market economics is going out of favour…

No Thanksgiving


After 14 years, !Password has gone to the Venture Capitalists for money.

I've been a longtime user, who has only sometimes been disappointed by the product. Generally, the more whizz bangers was added, the less I liked it, and I was less than happy that they did so little to support iCab and other alternative browsers.

I was more than a little worried about this when they switched to their subscription model. Fortunately, there are now other alternatives.

When the A.I. #Professor Leaves, #Students #Suffer, #Study Says


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/06/technology/when-the-ai-professor-leaves-students-suffer-study-says.html
For years, big tech companies have used huge salaries, bonuses and stock packages to lure artificial #intelligence experts out of #academia.
...
The talent shift could accelerate the development of artificial intelligence inside tech giants like #Google, #Microsoft, #Amazon and #Apple.
But at the universities the professors left, graduating students were less likely to create new A.I. companies. When they did, they attracted smaller amounts of funding, according to the study. The effect was most pronounced in the field of “deep learning,” a #technology that has become a crucial part of new A.I. systems.
