"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

Ojalá la editorial se hubiera portado de forma distinta con los autores. Al final varios estamos con un abogado para reclamar impagos y otros incumplimientos de contrato. Me da muchísima pena, porque escribí este y otros dos libros para ellos con muchísima ilusión. twitter.com/FECYT_Ciencia/stat

Iztuetatik pasatzen diren ia pertsona guztiak geratzen dira obrei begira, eta asko argazkiak egiteko gelditzen dira. Sentsazio bitxia da beti hor ikusi duzun egitura erraldoi bat denbora gutxian desagertzen ikustea

En mi clase llevan semanas hablando de sus cartas astrales, ascendentes y horóscopos.
Hoy me he presentado con 25 papeles y les he dicho que llevo dos meses construyendo la carta astral de cada uno basándome en su fecha de nacimiento, que miré de las listas del instituto.

This is the subject of my latest Locus column, "Free Markets," which makes the connection between Amazon's rent-seeking on audiobooks and the reason I couldn't deliver my audiobooks by app.

The short answer? If you sell stuff through an app on either of the major mobile app stores, then Google and Apple require you to use their payment processors and pay 30% for the privilege.

@be When cars became a commodity they started to shape our cities. Pedestrians were defenseless meatballs so they had to comply. Soon enough we started building entire cities around cars, esp. in North America, such that not having one meant you couldn't fetch your basic needs even. A more detailed history of this is available in videos of City Beautiful and Not Just Bikes on YouTube, tho surely there would be books that go way more in depth. In any case, now we're

A great deal of this mess comes from the drive to use the Web browser as a "platform" for applications ― in effect, an operating system, rather than a document viewer. (I'm sure I've said this before.) The most positive thing I can say about this is that it strikes me as a truly boneheaded approach to the problem of cross-platform compatibility!
