Enjoy. (saccarine sweet but human joy)
 
An excellent modern update to the cell phone story at the start of +Clay Shirky​'s Here Comes Everybody.
This really weird thing happened to me. Then it got even weirder. Then it turned insane. Do I have a story for you. [This is the epic continuation of "How I Became a Minor Celebrity in China.&...

Four years since the #Syria crisis began, this #infographic shows how many people have received #WFP assistance and how many people still need it. #SyriaHunger

Origami App (web page) idea.
#origami #html5 #video #javascript  #voicecommand  

Mr 10yo and I were engaging in a particularly complicated insect origami. We were being instructed by youTube which soon got very complicated with both hands holding intricate folds getting half way through and inverse valley fold and the video was on to the next step. 

"Stop it there,.. no back a bit, argh too far, now go forward, no too far, ok lets just watch those last five folds we messed up again..."

So I got the idea of a web page that would use Voice commands to control the playback of the video.  This is possible because of the HTML5 video element being controllable via JavaScript.
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/HTML/Using_HTML5_audio_and_video
So how to control the JavaScript by voice command? There are a few JS libraries around for this.
https://www.talater.com/annyang/  for one.

So all that needs to be done is wire the JS controls to the voice to the HTML5 video element. This should have been done but it appears that it has not. If you know of an example of this, please let me know.

Some commands it would need for origami are
Play, Pause
Forward/Back a bit (5 seconds?)
Forward/Back more (10 seconds)
Sound off/on
Start again
Ah stuff it (go to random video of cat antics)

I just can't be bothered building this tonight. Maybe later in the week.

Is Cory Bernardi for real? #OZconstitution   #corybernardi  
Statements from him , effectively,  that changing the Australian constitution to recognise the original people and the impact of colonisation are not acceptable because they divide based on race.

It is Cory that is playing the racism card.

This issue is PURELY about the original people (with 40,000 years of claim to this land) and the constitution, imposed on them by colonisers with currently just over 200 years of claims on the land (with very dubious record of improvement , care or preservation).

Cory, it is very inconsequentially the original people happened to be a particular range of Aboriginal and TSI gene pool and the colonisers originally mostly Anglo Saxon (but not exclusively and now much less so).

Some of the descendants of the original people may benefit from addressing this recent, tragic history.
Get over it and yourself.

Menanti Dampak KAA 2015 bagi Dunia

"Let a new Asia and a new Africa be born"  - Ir. Soekarno

#Kitabisa   #Indonesia   #KAA   #Asia   #Afrika   #conference  

Konferensi Asia Afrika (KAA) merupakan sebuah konferensi antar negara-negara di Benua Asia dan Afrika. Konferensi ini membicarakan tentang hal-hal yang menyangkut kepentingan bersama negara-negara di asia dan afrika, terutama kerjasama ekonomi dan kebudayaan, serta masalah kolonialisme dan perdamaian dunia.

Konferensi yang meningkatkan cita-cita tentang sebuah kehidupan merdeka, adil, dan sejahtera ini akhirnya diselenggarakan kembali setelah 60 tahun. Seperti apa dampaknya dimasa depan ?

confused
The Government insists it's not budging on its latest offer of a compromise on the Renewable Energy Target. Business groups have urged the Abbott Government to accept Labor's offer to cut the target to 33,500 gigawatt hours by 2020

We need to focus on this, not 3d printed pancakes. Yes that is a thing taking up space in my g+ stream.
