For the rest, we have lots of books, and we read a lot more than usual, and of course we started with Seneca's "On the Brevity of Life".
It seems all my plans to reenter the data protection consulting market will have to wait a lot, but then I have lost count of how many careers I've missed. And anyway, even the few CVs I sent around Europe in January did not exactly have a warm reception.
Oh well, there are more serious problems to think about.
et bien sûr, le trading à haute fréquence n'a absolument rien à voir avec la chute des places boursières
"If a designer draws wireframes, prepares prototypes, conducts workshops, but cannot deliver a solution for a problem, he or she is anything but a designer."
A delightful piece by Slava Shestopalof about the slow drift of design titles towards a total lack of meaning.
"“UX/UI designer” sounds as awkward as “vegetable/carrot salad” or “vehicle/bus driver. Why don’t we call ourselves designers anymore? When did “design” cease to mean anything?"

I saw a video on the HP85 personal computer from 1979 and it really got me thinking about how we do computing today.
How easy it it for the average user to sit down at a computer and do some computation?
I guess that the closest thing we have to a general purpose numbercruncher for most people is... Excel/Calc/Google Sheets?
That's absolutely not the direction HP, etc thought computation would go in 1979, I'm sure.

@kick That's simply how information works.
So with pervasive recorded fungible, manipulable, queryable, records, on tremendous numbers of people, you don't know what future motives, contexts, norms, values, power structures, etc., will be.
The problem with Google's policy of getting right up to the creepy line, is that that creepy line moves.
So does the Surveillance Data Risk Line.
And we don't know what parts will move which way for what people and data.
