Curious to see what will happen in the near future.

Thx +Edward Boute  for sharing.

Tech culture is very fond of persistence, stubbornness, perseverance, and the idea that you should never give up. We're surrounded by stories of visionaries who were told they'd never succeed and went on to change the world. But sometimes, you should put selection bias aside and, yes, give up.  This applies to big companies perhaps even more than for startups. Big companies have entire strategy teams devoted to working out what to do...

[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

Time to start thinking about the future of the open web. "Taken together, Apple News and Facebook Instant Articles are the saddest refutation of the open web revolution possible: they are incompatible proprietary publishing systems entirely under the control of huge corporations, neither of which particularly understands publishing or media. Earlier this year, I called Facebook the new AOL; Instant Articles comes from the same instinct as AOL trying to bring Time Warner's media content into its app just before the web totally kicked its ass."
It's going to get worse before it gets better

While we didn't win the Triple Crown or a Tony Award, we did launch some cool stuff to make your work life better. From Security Keys to Password Alerts and even real clouds...here's what you might have missed from #GoogleforWork in Q2.

Should not miss this one when visiting the Cevennes. You can combine the trip from Anduze to Saint Jean du Gard with a visit to the Aquarium in Saint Jean du Gard and/or on the way back visit La Bambouseraie. All is well-organized, crowdy but not over commercialized. Employees are helpfull and friendly, clearly a committed team. tip 1: if you want to enjoy the true flavor of steam and burned coal: pick the first wagons behind the locomotive. However, expect to get some black on your face! tip 2: you can take your own lunch and picknick tables are available free of charge, even without consumption.
