An sich hat man vor solchen LiPos ja Respekt. Ist ja gefährlich. Das Kissen ist dagegen ziemlich OK, für den geneigten Nerd. Kann man bei Redbubble kaufen.

2020 is weird

Five Months into the year of 2020, I wouldn’t be surprised about this kind of new neighbors, either. Indeed, 2020 is weird so far.

For those bored in isolation, you can now build your own vintage computer. From paper. Following the instructions from Rocky Bergen, an artist and designer. Should work well with kids, too!

Contact tracing.

Health Officials Say ‘No Thanks’ to Contact-Tracing Tech“, titles Wired. In all these recent debates about how to handle Covid-19 going forward, in particular in Germany, it may be worthwhile looking beyond borders.

Later last month, Engadget reported, that Israel stops phone tracing to enforce Corona quaranties. While Israel seemed to look at phone location information, the Wired article suggests multiple US states and cities evaluated the benefit of other contact tracing technology. The result seems to disappoint:

States like New York, California, and Massachusetts, and cities like Baltimore and San Francisco, have looked carefully at cutting-edge contact-tracing solutions and largely said, “No thanks,” or “Not now.”

Foreign perspective is an interesting one, too. Foreign Policy titles “Germany’s Angst Is Killing Its Coronavirus Tracing App“. Which, after all, may be the exact outcome.

Schlangenöl

Vollkommen überraschend ist Antivirensoftware Schlangenöl und können Schaden auf den Systemen anrichten, die sie schützen sollen. Quote:

Da die Antivirenprogramme mit Root-Rechten laufen, konnten auch wichtige Systemdateien gelöscht werden.

The Rolling Stones Perform “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”

Nach Lady Gaga, Elton John, den Killers, Annie Lennox und ettlichen anderen haben sich auch die Rolling Stones zuhause eingeschlossen und ein Konzert über Internet gegeben. Im Rahmen von One World: Together at Home haben die 4 “You can’t always get what you want.” zum Besten gegeben. Die Ärzte haben zwar neulich mit Ihrem “Lied für jetzt” etwas ähnliches gemacht, waren bei One World: Together at Home, glaube ich, aber aussen vor.

As part of the One World: Together at Home fundraiser organized by the WHO, Global Citizen, and Lady Gaga that raised $127.9 million for Covid-19 relief efforts, the members of the Rolling Stones, each in their own home, got together via video to perform You Can’t Always Get What You Want. It’s a lovely messy & spare performance and the choice of song is timely — plenty of people around the world are definitely not getting what they want right now, but hopefully we will eventually end up getting what we need.

Implementing feedback into our work culture

Healthy organizations are places in which feedback is encouraged, even if it’s about issues that are not easy to hear. How does this work?
