"I have a Git history of this document, and I have a history of pull requests with comments. This is way better than meeting notes or even a meeting video. Anyone who joins the project later will be able to understand how we came to the conclusion of using PostgreSQL and storing monetary amounts without cents. It's all there in the Git history and Github tickets, forever with us."
"I continued on in my professional career, which included developing and supporting proprietary software, but I found that the lack of source code and/or the ability to rebuild it myself constantly hampered my ability to do my job. Proprietary software companies today are more careful to give "some open source"; thus, many technology professionals don't realize until it's too late how crippling proprietary software can be when you rely on it every day. In the mid 1990s, hardly any business software license gave us software freedom, so denying our rights to practice our profession (i.e, fix software) made many of us hate our jobs. I considered leaving the field of software entirely because I disliked working with proprietary software so much. Those experiences made me a software freedom zealot. I made a vow that I never wanted any developer or sysadmin to feel the constraints of proprietary software licensing, which limits technologists by what legal agreements their company's lawyers can negotiate rather than their technical skill."
Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have built a fully functional neuron by using organic bioelectronics. This artificial neuron contain no "living" parts, but is capable of mimicking the function of a human nerve cell and communicate in the same way as our own neurons do.
Even more strange is to blame austerity after just one and a half year. Then want to return back to leverage economy that last for two decades and brought the country to the current mess.
Greece is broken. Austerity will crush its economy and impose a huge human impact. It will take time to Greece recover. But neglecting sound economics in name of populism will be far worse. It will put Greece in a path of decades of broken economy. Also, it will be unfair to all other Europeans that did not commit the same mistakes and will be called to help the imprevident ones.
