Interesting. I didn't even know that Lego started out by copying a patented design.
Fascinating! I knew that LEGO had "copied" they're brick style from someone else, but that it went that far back is incredible!

About time. Especially since 8.1 is still supported.

"Vill man se 40-åriga män gråta ska man gå på spelmusikkonsert!" Zelda, Final Fantasy eller kanske Journey - hur har denna musik blivit så populär? Vi går på nattklubbar med chipmusik och retromässor med gamla arkadspel och pratar med fansen. Vi träffar också gamla och nya spelmusikkompositörer som berättar hur musiken skapas. Vi möter spelmusikens Beethoven, Nobuo Uematsu, när han möter sina förväntansfulla fans och signerar skivor. Filmregissör...

If you get measles, it harms your immune system for several years afterwards. So if you vaccinate against the measles, it protects you from many other infectious diseases, as an added bonus. Nice!
It turns out the measles virus is actually nastier than we've thought, as it weakens your immune defense system against many other diseases it previously might have had resistance against. So not only does this vaccine reduce measles infections, but it also reduce deaths from lots of other infectious diseases.

You might want to grant your kid superhero resistance against all that.
When the U.S. introduced the measles vaccine, childhood deaths from all infections plummeted. Scientists think they might know why: Benefits of the measles vaccine go way beyond the measles.

Jon Karlung (Bahnhof): De flesta förstår inte riskerna [med massövervakning]

Ett studiebesök hos tyska Stasi, en ganska ineffektiv övervakningsapparat eftersom allt var analogt. Försvarets radioanstalt (FRA) har idag mycket effektivare och otäckare teknik för att spionera på dem som just idag upplevs vara ett hot mot rikets säkerhet eller den allmänna ordningen.

Stasi var bekymrade över punkmusik. I dagens Ryssland skyller man alla problem på homosexuella och västerlänningar. I Kina kan fel politiska åsikter göra att du hamnar i fängelse. I Sverige spionerar vi antagligen på muslimer och islamister, men ingen vet exakt vad FRA har för sig, eftersom ingen övervakar övervakaren. De kan missbruka sin makt i princip hur som helst utan att någon granskar dem.

Vad skulle möjligen kunna gå fel?
