Half Baked Edition
- OrbitDB is a distributed database for the peer-to-peer web or something like that. (GitHub)
It's written in Node.js and uses IPFS for storage, which makes it the stupidest idea since they built the original Hoover Dam out of candy floss.
- We're living through Connie Willis's Remake. (The Verge)
And also Doomsday Book.
- Australia has come down with a severe case of France. (New Zealand Herald)
This will be amusing.
- Online services are struggling to find a way to filter content after sending their staff home. (AP News)
They're not very bright, are they.
- Spider goat, spider goat, whatever happened to spider goat? (AG Funder News)
Well, the company went broke and the goats are probably dead, so not a lot.
- 700 malicious Ruby gems have been found and removed from rubygems.org. (The Hacker News which is not the same as Hacker News, which is not at all ironic)
These days I twitch every time I install a new Python package.
- A zero-day exploit for Zoom is being sold for $500,000. (Bleeping Computer)
