World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency

quote [ we present a suite of graphical vital signs of climate change over the last 40 years for human activities that can affect GHG emissions and change the climate (figure 1), as well as actual climatic impacts (figure 2). We use only relevant data sets that are clear, understandable, systematically collected for at least the last 5 years, and updated at least annually. ]

In case the XKCD summary wasn't sharp enough.

quote [ If the current trend of technology is sweeping us in a direction of “everything is amazing, but nothing is ours”, Technology that’s Actually Yours could be the next great counter-trend. ]

The Deletion of Yahoo! Groups and Archive Team's Rescue Effort –

quote [ On December 14, everything ever posted to Yahoo! Groups in its 20-year history will be permanently deleted from the web. Groups will continue running as email-only mailing lists, but all public content and archives — messages, attachments, photos, and more — will be deleted. ]

The only mailing list I still expected to be on Yahoo had already transitioned to

Some of these preservation efforts make me wonder if it's more of a sentimental thing. Or if there really is a use in keeping 20 year old web communication public.

QBN - For a better tomorrow

quote [ Started 16 years ago
Last post an hour ago
70,297 Responses ]

Seeing that SE has become some sort of microcommunity, a friend mentioned this to me:

QBN was originally an art director's forum that continues to be used by a core group of contributers and recently had a redesign.

The blog is essentially an endless forum post, same for the “… of the day” feeds.

Bruce Chatwin was the internet before the internet existed

quote [ Chatwin also had a notoriously liberal relationship with “the truth.” This indeed is one of the aspects of Chatwin’s work with which Herzog feels the deepest kindred. In Chatwin’s “non-fiction” works like In Patagonia and The Songlines, he was often related events that did not in fact happen, or embellishe danthropological details to make them fit his theories more closely. ]

“In Patagonia” was pretty good. Article has deep thoughts, if a bit artsy.

Are You a Moral Grandstander?

quote [ To be sure, the human drive for social status can be a great driver of growth and goodness in the world. It really depends on whether one has a healthy regulation of this fundamental human need. ]

As Robert Pfaller puts it:
“I don't want to so so you're not permitted to.”

(the manifest thing should be taken with a grain of salt, though)
