Sans titre

I finished all sixteen episodes of Bablylon Berlin. It was quite a ride. And at the end I'm not sure exactly what happened. I needed this summary to convince me that I did/do. Would I recommend it? It's a roller coaster. Dark. Some scenes are hard to watch. The song is addictive. You fall in love with the characters. Would I watch it again? Not sure. But the ending isn't exactly Singin' in the Rain. ^:

Don't you know the best things in life are free? It's true!

It's incredibly sad that New York magazine thinks the internet was the creation of venture capitalists and execs. Next they're going to ask us to believe that love was created by VCs. The heavens and stars above. Life itself.

New York magazine quotes Wikimedia exec: "There is no public internet, and we are the closest thing to it," which is of course complete nonsense. You know all those citations at the end of every Wikipedia article? Where do you think those come from? Wikimedia owes the internet an apology. And New York mag, I used to respect it, has been running a series with the theme that the internet wants to apologize. That's like saying the Grand Canyon wants to apologize. This is what journalism thinks it can get away with. No different than the garbage Fox News sells.

The simplest way to parse any kind of feed in Node.js. Example.

It's great that the Dems sued Trump, Wikileaks, Russians if for no other reason that they will have to give depositions. Firing Mueller is looking like less of a solution to anything. Also pardon power does not extend to civil penalties. Heh. Good lawyering.

For such a famous place, it's weird that Silicon Valley doesn't have a landmark. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. NYC has the Empire State Building, London has Big Ben. I remember arriving in Silicon Valley in 1979 and driving around looking for it and finding nothing but suburbs. I guess that's why Buck's was so popular. It certainly wasn't the food. )

On a discussion board, I posted, in response to a fellow techie talking about interfaces that work for grandmas. "Here we are, a bunch of middle-aged men, with no clue wtf is going on. On the other hand things are so broken this way, there's no chance of it getting fixed. I don't like the NYC subways either, but they're what we got. Technology is like evolution, it favors what works, and never fixes its mistakes."

James Comey

James Comey is a lawyer and bureaucrat.

He doesn't have that much to say.

He was spectacularly wrong about something really important, and doesn't know it.

And he is no Michael Wolff, a muck-raker and rabble-rouser, by profession.


The press loves Silicon Valley

20 April[ —]

If you want an idea of why no one told you what Facebook was up to, look no further than the press. It was their job to tell you, after the tech companies.

Here's the lead paragraph of a news story written by John Markoff in the NY Times on this day in 2015.

  • "Silicon Valley has a richly deserved reputation as the world’s engine of technology innovation, with a track record that includes developing integrated circuits, microprocessors, personal computers and smartphones. This is a culture of confidence and bravado. Ask a bunch of tech leaders about their goals, and it’s a good bet that many of them will utter the words, 'To change the world.'"

That was and probably still is the way the press views the tech industry. Until they get over it, don't expect much reality from them re tech.
