BOOM. Dutchies! "All European scientific articles to be freely accessible by 2020" Cc @glynmoody http://english.eu2016.nl/latest/news/2016/05/27/all-european-scientific-articles-to-be-freely-accessible-by-2020
All scientific articles in Europe must be freely accessible as of 2020. EU member states want to achieve optimal reuse of research data. They are also looking into a European visa for foreign start-up founders.

If they are talking about "access" and "intellectual property" instead of ownership and sharing, they are doing it wrong. "Access" is nice but it needs to be free, so that I can build an library to research and share as I see fit. Universities and librarians would be happy to host and curate articles but can't the way publishers have things locked down. Like us, they can hardly find what's there, much less guide the public to the right information. All I can see here is delays.

It reminds me of the "proactive" legislation sponsored by tobacco companies back in the 1970s to delay smoking bans. They derailed smoking bans with completely ineffective "smoking areas" in public spaces. Decades later, smoking bans were finally won and heart attack admissions dropped by 60%. "Intellectual property" is a similar confusion and laws that mention it will have similar results.

Project Genesis

Movie plot: A 75 year old russian computer expert and a US computer expert of similar age are pulled out of retirement by a young group of hackers because they found out that the old computers controlling nuclear missiles can be hacked from the outside. Together they race against the clock to fix shit before the evil hacker group that follows their doomsday cult leader and calls itself Project Genesis can cause nuclear war.

Now is the time to call on lawmakers everywhere to make all APIs exempt of copyright. Fair use on a case by case basis isn't good enough.

EU has (c) exemption for APIs etc for reverse engineering to establish interoperability. US should do the same?

This was established in EU directive 2009/24. Para (15) has the details http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:32009L0024:EN:NOT

People, living in a monarchy with that weird House of Lords, promoting #Brexit because EU lacks democracy. Right. ;-)

Today I praise the German tax office. I filed my tax reports for 2014 (far too late, this should have been done in May 2015) and 2015 via ELSTER (the certificate secured online tax filing thingy) on 2016-04-27. And today I downloaded the official results. That's impressively fast. Last time I waited 8 months. And I actually got more tax returns than expected :-)

Yup, that one is simple, and usually very quick (at least that was always true for me, when I was an employee). Once you go freelance or found a company and thus become liable for income tax, things get more complicated quickly. I filed for three years in a row through an accountant, and by now I figure I've learned enough about the process that I can do it myself. So I did. And now I'm waiting. :)

TIL that you need to use the --expert option for gpg to generate subkeys with the authentication flag.

I've now spent the last hour going down the rabbit hole of PGP SSH auth, and now I want a Yubikey Neo more than ever.

+Jan Wildeboer +Parker Higgins of the EFF and I have been discussing it too, although he gave a talk saying the questions were too hard recently. Maybe he knows the point person on the issue there? Not sure about the time limitation... https://www.loc.gov/today/pr/2010/10-169.html ?
