  • Slack is taking customer data and using it for AI training.  (Security Week)

    "You can opt out", said Slack, which didn't actually bother to tell anyone it was doing this in the first place.  "You just have to call customer support."

    "The data is not shared with third parties and never leaves Slack's trust boundary" added a Slack representative, missing the point that Slack's trust boundary is now zero.

Anime Music Video of the Day



Song is Best Day of My Life by the band American Authors.  Anime is Non Non Biyori, which follows the daily lives of the children - all five of them - in a remote Japanese farming community.  The location is fictional but the hints are that it would be somewhere in northwestern Honshu.

Their dilapidated school building though is entirely real.



Disclaimer: There is a word - though I don't remember the word or even the language it is from, so this is of questionable utility - for nostalgia for a time and a place that you never knew.  Non Non Biyori delivers that like nothing I have ever seen.

3 No, the server saw one last chance before I do the migration (in seven hours) and decided to drop dead.

5 The word you are trying to remember is anemoia (https://www.thedictionaryofobscuresorrows.com/concept/anemoia). I tried looking through my copy of The Meaning of Tingo, but I didn't see it in there, so I tried a web search, which produced it. I should have tried that first, to be honest, but at least it got me thinking of my book, which I really need to spend more time with.

6 Thanks, that is exactly the word I was thinking of.  I've ordered a copy of that book.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
