One bit of advice from +Elon Musk : it is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree — make sure you understand the fundamental principles, ie the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is nothing for them to hang on to.

Orgineel idee van +Pieterjan Van Leemputten !

'Ik wil graag geloven dat onze overheid wil digitaliseren. Ik wil graag geloven dat onze overheid moet besparen en ik wil graag geloven dat onze overheid efficiënt wil zijn. Maar een klein miljard euro uitdelen aan een overheidsbedrijf om papieren kranten uit te delen, daar is geen enkel zinnig argument voor', schrijft Data News-redacteur Pieterjan Van Leemputten.

Please support this call!
 
[Warning! RANT] - Chrome OS and e-id card reader support

Tax return season is in full swing and that means in Belgium that close to 3 mio tax returns will be filled out online and authenticated with mandatory e-id cards but.. not by Chrome OS users because not supported.

Also local communities, libraries, employment agencies and banks use the e-id cards not only for authentication, but also to avoid retyping personal information by simply reading the public information on the e-id card.

"Ah, but Belgium is too small for Google to be interested in supporting this e-id cards"
 
Think again. According to Wikipedia countries currently issuing government-issued EICs include Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Mexico, Morocco, Pakistan, Portugal, Romania, Estonia, Latvia, Spain, Slovakia, Malta, and Mauritius. Countries currently accepting bank-issued EICs for identification towards authorities (also known as Bankid) include Norway and Sweden.

So for the umptieth time someone recently filed a feature request to include e-id support that received the status "This issue has already been moved once and is lower than Priority 1,therefore removing mstone.". Or plainly put, just f* off.

So please star this feature request to give this a higher priority:
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=446148&q=e-id&colspec=ID%20Pri%20M%20Week%20ReleaseBlock%20Cr%20Status%20Owner%20Summary%20OS%20Modified

Good research!

#tw  
Results from the CIO Executive Council’s ‘Power of Effective IT Communication’ benchmark survey indicate that IT teams lack the talent to communicate. This results in a state of crisis between IT and non-IT employees, which could prove disastrous in this era of unparalleled digital disruption.
