  1. Jeremy Corbyn the absolute boy! 😍🤗

  2. Jeremy Corbyn warns about the risk of losing jobs to robots and that new technology has led to "a more rapacious and exploitative form of capitalism". Instead Corbyn suggest that robots in the workplace should be owned and controlled by workers rather than bosses, the BBC reports. Corbyn also suggest that "gig economy" firms like Uber should be replaced by co-operatives owned by the workers, and where the drivers would collectively set their own salaries and working conditions. YES! FULLY AUTOMATED LUXURY GAY SPACE COMMUNISM!

  14. What games are you currently playing? I recently re-installed good ol' Team Fortress 2 and I've been having a blast with this old classic which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. And apparently Valve are working on a big new TF2 update that will be released soon, which frankly is pretty damn amazing for a game that is 10 years old.
  15. This is just heartbreaking! In a colony of about 40 000 Adélie penguins in East Antarctica only two(!) chicks survived this year's breeding season. The catastrophic breeding event is a result of climate change, as well as overfishing, oil drilling and pollution. The Guardian reports: Penguin disaster as only two chicks survive from colony of 40,000 And it's not just about climate change, as John Sauven notes: Penguins starving to death is a sign that something’s very wrong in the Antarctic Adélie penguins tend to be regarded as as a species that could adapt better than other species to a rapidly changing climate. But coupled with both global warming and overfishing, they are having a hard time to survive - as this catastrophic breeding event so brutally shows.

    Detta var veckans politiska höjdpunkt måste jag ändå säga.

  17. The horrific scenes from the Catalan Referendum shows that the police is no protector or guarantor of democracy. Instead they willingly suppress democracy and with extreme force beat down non-violent, ordinary people.

  18. Det här är lite småroligt faktiskt.

  19. On October 10 the EU will vote on a new controversial copyright reform that could kill smaller, independent online communities – just like this one.

    Article 13 in the new copyright reform could make owners of forums, blogs and other platforms that is built on user generated content liable for what their users post, and the reform forces these websites and platforms to introduce complex and expensive copyright filters. Under the new copyright reform, community owners could be sued for any copyrighted material shared or used by the users of its platform that their filters or staff/moderators doesn’t catch. Clearly, this could be devastating for smaller and independent online communities that would be unable to implement filters or afford a legal team to handle potential lawsuits.

    TNW has a good article on this dysfunctional proposal where Raegan MacDonald, Senior Policy Manager and EU Principal at Mozilla, warns that new copyright reform "would eventually lead to more homogenous cultural content, coming from fewer publishers and being available on fewer platforms".

    Quote

    “I talked to smaller businesses and startups about this, or usually the one lawyer that they have on staff — if they had any at all — and just asked them: ‘Legally speaking, would you allow your platform to be open?’ And they couldn’t, because they won’t be able to shoulder that legal liability for content that the filter doesn’t catch,” said MacDonald.
