For anyone that does research by searching the internet for images... Have you noticed the the web of images is drying up?
These days everything goes to Instagram, which is the text book definition of a walled garden. Without an account you can't see anything.
What I usually find when searching are old pictures on Flickr or some blog that was abandoned in 2010. I'd say 80% of the hits I get is from the pre-Insta era.
That's what sticks in my craw here. Not the policy part, not the (naive, flawed) implementation. Somebody asked the Chromium team to restrict students access to devtools and source code, and there wasn't even a discussion.
If you're a Non-Apple user but still want to use something like AirDrop, https://snapdrop.net could be for you.
Microsoft Silently Dropping Emails – a Sad but True Story
Just out of curiosity. Can anyone recommend any tech video channels made by more diverse sets of people? With focus on e.g. Linux, *BSD, hardware, privacy-focused FLOSS phones/tablets? Also I'm interested in social aspects of computation & networking.
I'm sick of watching tech videos made by tech bros.
