Sneaky sneaky!

"We've balanced the budget! <Small print> By taking $1billion from the emergency contingency fund. Oh and we're extending copyright for 20 additional years because, it's good for our friends </small print>"
Federal Conservative Government of Canada
 
We found out in yesterday's budget that Canada will extend copyright without any public consultation. Retroactive extension does not help creators. For Canadians, the extension could cost millions of dollars and works that were scheduled to come into the public domain will now remain locked away for decades. Is this fair?

#KnowYourRights !  From the article:
As Geist succinctly puts it:

“In a nutshell, Rightscorp and BMG are using the notice-and-notice system to require ISPs to send threats and misstatements of Canadian law in an effort to extract payments based on unproven infringement allegations.” 
 
Ugh. Industry Minister James Moore STILL hasn't fixed the loophole that's letting Big Media companies abuse Canadian downloaders. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/1w5rroB

WOAH! And keep in mind that G'MIC is a plug-in for GIMP.
 
I wrote a loooong article about all the stuffs I've done on G'MIC these last ten months, as well as other general info about the G'MIC project. Hope you'll enjoy it!
April 20, 2015. My latest ten months working on G'MIC. A few days ago, I released a new version of G'MIC (GREYC's Magic for Image Computing, numbered 1.6.2.0). This is a free and generic image processing framework I've been developing since 2008. For this particular occasion, I thought it would ...

I couldn't find my watch this morning. I have a nice Seiko Kinetic automatic watch. It's powered by a fly wheel which charges the capacitor inside my watch.

I've always been a watch wearer ever since I learned to tell time. I still even have my first watch! A yellow Snoopy wind-up watch!

I've been watching Android Wear ever since hearing about it. This new update might push me over to get a smart watch. I like the new gestures, update in UI and Wi-Fi features. We'll see about battery life.
 
Android Wear update!
A month ago I wrote "Apple’s contribution to the smartwatch: An app-centric approach and Wi-Fi" and today Wear gets Wi-Fi and a top level app list. 

Also these always-on apps look really cool.
Android Wear adds Wi-Fi support, a top-level app list, and always-on apps.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
