"""For alongside the leaders of the pan-European far right, who RT welcomes into its studios, alongside anti-European Tories, the cranks, creeps and conspiracy theorists, sit the leaders of our own Labour left – and not only Corbyn and John McDonnell. Richard Burgon is Labour’s satirically named “justice” spokesman. He has never denounced the injustice Putin brings to Russia and the wider world during the nine occasions RT has had him on air. In this, he is symptomatic of a wider left that calls itself “anti-imperialist” but has nothing to say about Eurasia’s most voracious imperial power.

Russia has little to fear from Britain. The government cannot defend democracy because it is compromised by its endorsement of Brexit. The leaders of the opposition cannot force ministers to act because they are compromised by their complicity with the propaganda machine of a mafia state. If “it” happens here, the British public need never know."""

A new kind of camera app...that captures lots of non-obvious metadata to fingerprint each photo. The speaker is Harlo Holmes.

I've been wrong about every twist in Star Trek: Discovery so far but I'm convinced by this theory.

Gene editing to be banned in sports by 2018

The World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) recently declared their intention to ban gene editing in professional sports -- although how they'll to detect such edits is still in question.

Perhaps WADA will extend the “biological passports” they introduced in 2009 as a base line for athletes -- but then that wouldn't detect embryonic edits. We'll see how this pans out in the next decade or so.

If Discovery is really about Section 31 then it just became a lot more interesting. It also fixes most (but not all of the issues) in the show.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object_Linking_and_Embedding

"""OLE allows an editing application to export part of a document to another editing application and then import it with additional content. For example, a desktop publishing system might send some text to a word processor or a picture to a bitmap editor using OLE. The main benefit of OLE is to add different kinds of data to a document from different applications, like a text editor and an image editor. This creates a Compound File Binary Format document and a master file to which the document makes reference. Changes to data in the master file immediately affect the document that references it. This is called "linking" (instead of "embedding")."""

These are all the things I liked about Jaiku and Buzz.
Why did I pick G+ as an alternative to Twitter in my personal life given the boycott? It's a more thoughtful platform and offers me better abuse controls. While it's fun to sling 140 character zingers around, one thing I've really appreciated about Google's internal Plus instance (and missed about public Plus) is that it's easy to write essays about complicated topics (no, not That kind of essay), and be able to moderate thoughtful discussion. The commons is shared, but also the lines of who is primarily responsible for moderating what are clearer (e.g. the original poster/re-sharer) rather than being left only up to the platform's owner. And discussions can fork into reshares without endlessly tagging the original poster. [and, selfishly, I do have a direct line to the abuse team]
