In the workaholic "productivity"-focused Western culture, caffeine is king. But now it seems like we're ready for the next level, drugs.

Yes, Google's search results most of the time represent reality The BBC reports that searching for the term #CEO in #GoogleImages , the first picture of woman you get is a picture of Barbie in a suit. Which is to be expected given the current status of gender inequality... 

>> This "gender bias" has become apparent after a paper was published showing that many image searches for specific occupations favour men or women. The authors of the report say they have found "stereotype exaggeration and systematic underrepresentation of women in search results".
[...] Although fairer representation may improve the real-world balance of genders in different occupations, the report recommends "balance" when it comes to the algorithms search engines use. <<

So instead of fixing the problem of inequality, we need to fix the search results algorithm. Then inequality will be fixed. Or it wont be so visible...

Exactly at least not in a meaningful useful way.

Another fun way to fill your hard disk // Apparently the Mail.app on OS X will keep endless logs of your connections to your servers. If you have a setting to check the server for new mail frequently, and lots of e-mail accounts (I have 7 :)), it adds up. That means I just deleted 40GB of useless logs!

You can find these files at /Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Logs/Mail

+Tenza Emtade Not really, they're just my own greats. Not because of Linux, but for free software in general. Software that I can help contribute to and can be used by anyone, even if they don't have the money to pay for it.

Excellent analysis on the context around Hilary Clinton's new campaign logo. Zero % shouting and posturing involved ;)

Google’s war on URLs continues // #Google announced a change it has been testing for some time: replacing the URL in search results with the breadcrumbs of the page. Ironically, Google’s announcement is titled “Better presentation of URLs in search results”.

Why Google, why? Apparently, #Chrome  keeps a copy of every single version of itself that you have ever updated though. And since the default is to auto-update, that means I just deleted 62 versions going back to 2012. A total of almost 10GB... #WTF

Check your installation as /Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/Versions

There comes a time when covering endless boring press conferences of bankers as a photographer finally pays off! :D

Security officers detain a protester who jumped on the table in front of the European Central Bank President Mario Draghi during a news conference in Frankfurt, April 15, 2015. The news conference was disrupted on Wednesday when a woman in a black T-shirt jumped on the podium. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach
