YouTube TV: Yes please!

This is a launch I've been waiting for and am eager to see. The major things I watch on TV are sports and excellent programming from Showtime and others. Looks like on day one they pretty much have 90% of what I need set. Ready for this. Nice work +Stephen Lau and team!

Outrage makes money, so it's only logical that there are now media companies like 'American News LLC' that run news outlets for opposite ends of the political spectrum.

They take real news or create fake ones, and make sure they're worded in a way that makes their target audience furious (and that agrees with the audience's world view).

The naive response is "well, people will just stop reading those after they find out they're being fed bullshit". That hasn't been the case.

I've seen very clever and otherwise-rational people share completely fake stories from sites like RussiaToday, just because they told about something that enraged them and that 'verified' their suspicions. When you try to correct the obvious lie, it's too late. The audience is already sold on the 'alternative fact', and cognitive dissonance makes them perform logical acrobatics (e.g. "the data doesn't match what I believe, therefore it's fake", or "it's just mainstream media propaganda" or "it's a powerful lobby of scientists with hidden agenda" or "Putin may be a war-mongering autocrat but Obama didn't close Guantanamo so it's all even").

What I'm saying is: this won't fix itself, and it's more complex than most people realize.

Daniel Bogan runs a site called that does interviews with different people from all kinds of professions about their "work setup" (everything from computer scientists to chefs to beekeepers). He asked me if I'd participate, and here's the result:

Browing the other interviews is kind of fun just to hear about what tools are useful for other professions:

Thanks for running this site, Daniel!

Last month I asked everyone what packages are missing on pub.¹ Here are the results:

I know the Dart team is looking to address the following:

● Easy to use native access
● Maintained wrapper for D3 — via js_facade_gen
● Datepicker Angular2 component — in the angular2_components pkg

I'll ask for a "standard, dart team-blessed API for the database drivers". I wish I could promise more, but the team's time is going into things like evolving the language, improving the compilation, building plugins, maintaining existing packages like test, build, angular2, etc. We are also working on improving the experience of pub itself, the site, and the whole 'package ecosystem experience'.

I think that 3 requests already have a good answer (imho):

● (Twig|Jekyll)-like static site generator: sitegen² and stillshot³
● pkg:sqlite⁴ for sqlite
+Stephan Schröder's pikaday_datepicker_angular2⁵ for AngularDart date picker

If anyone here wants to contribute to an existing package (or take a package over) let me know. Feel free to chip in if you have a yet-unreleased package that will address one of the requests, for example.

Myslím, že chtít závratných 130 Kč za něco, na čem jsem strávil roky vývoje a pro co jsem platil herce na dabing, je donebevolající drzost!
A ještě to oznámit jen v popisku aplikace, to je to samý, jako si to nechat pro sebe! Zima Software jsou zlí!
