Le best wtf-max-cynism price de ce matin - mais en faut-il encore? - le https://amazonrelieffund.org/ où l'homme-le-plus-riche-du-monde #bezos demande qu'on aide ses employés empauvrisés à travers ce fond. Le mec qui se fait 230000$ à la minute et dirige une boite qui paie des impôts négatifs (oui, amazon touche plus de subsides qu'ils ne paient d’impôts).
► We’ve been postponing the release of this new book REALTIME: MAKING DIGITAL CHINA since January when the #covid_19 pandemic started, with the somewhat naive hope that this crisis would be over in a near future. To this day, it seems that this situation will last and likely remain central to our lives for the year(s) to come. We collectively decided to hold an ONLINE RELEASE.
► Thursday March 26, 10-11pm CET (4-5pm CDT)
► We’ll take this opportunity to talk about ● Makerspaces in China ● Shanzhai Culture ● Shenzhen’s Night Markets ● Second-Hand Electronics ● Rural E-commerce Villages ● Damnu (online commenting) Practices and ● Potential Future of Technology in China. The presentation will be articulated in relation with the #covid_19 pandemic, live from the present #lockdown situation of each contributor.
Talks by: Clément Renaud, Dino Ge Zhang, Dennis de Bel, Maria Roszkowska, Nicolas Maigret, Gabriele de Seta...
Firefox 74 re-introduces outdated TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 due to current pandemic:
"We reverted the change for an undetermined amount of time to better enable access to critical government sites sharing COVID19 information."
Context: TLS versions older than 1.2 are considered insecure and were disabled in Firefox 74. The long-term goal is to completely remove outdated TLS from all current web browsers.

What You Should Know About Online Tools During the COVID-19 Crisis—EFF Deeplinks
COVID-19, open source hardware
"Welcome to Open Source Ventilator (OSV) Ireland. This project was initiated by the COVID-19 global pandemic as a result of a community discussion within a Facebook group called Open Source COVID-19 Medical Supplies (OSCMS). This group rapidly grew and currently is targeting the development of a number of different COVID-19 related medical supplies.
Our mission is to develop a Field Emergency Ventilator (FEV) system to be used in an emergency situation, where a large number of basic ventilator systems are required. We are working closely with a core design team of 20+ area experts, external organisations and other open source groups to develop a number of viable concepts for testing.
We are quickly trying to set up structures and systems to fast track the development of these solutions, organize volunteers and structure a response."
> quand on se remet sous les yeux le tableau d’ensemble de ces ahurissements, on se dit en effet que tous ces gens se sont fait prendre soit par surprise, soit par connerie. Et que l’hypothèse de la surprise étant à l’évidence exclue, il ne reste que celle de la connerie — qui n’est pas une surprise.
Ah oui oui oui.
