As we seem to enter even more interesting times, the Jack of Kent blog has an interesting analysis how Article 50 could play out in the next few years, in the sense that nobody will actually perform the official notification. Cameron will hide behind his resignation and whoever comes after him might stall for another three months when getting into office.

This is obviously not what was promised during the campaigning, but admitting to not telling the truth immediately after the election/votes seems to be par for the course nowadays.

Keeping around "We'll invoke article 50" as a staple of politics might well be in the future, but I'm not so certain that the (rest of the) EU will want to heed such threats, at least in the current climate.

Algorithm for Private Set Intersection aka. you don't have to give your complete adressbook to Facebook/Whatsapp/Telegram:

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11289223
As Moxie notes, this problem is known as private set intersection: how can two parties P1 & P2 discover which elements they have in common, without revealing all their elements to each other or to a third party? His error is in describing scenarios where P1 is Open Whisper Systems and P2 is one ...

Signs That You're Living in the Future part 2 b)

This one is full satirical and not yet completely technically possible. But I can see the Digital Restriction Management restricting the amount of unlicensed people enjoying an activity at the same time.

I've released a new Perl module, MIME::Detect[1] and also blogged about it [2]. MIME::Detect allows convenient file type detection using the database from freedesktop.org. The important part is that it doesn't use the shared database of the machine so you can use it under Windows and also for self-contained applications.

^In what is a somewhat mild case of yak-shaving, I need a portable way of identifying file types in several situations. For example, when indexing files for Dancer::SearchApp or when handling user uploads, I want to somewhat reliably identify various files. I want to determine their type without ...

I want these as my Greek Chorus, potentially with text-to-speech, but I'll take their grunts as commentary as well

Virtual Spring Cleaning

I now have a blog series where I blog on each module I release. It really is a series because it's already been three posts! I've decided to release a plethora of modules that I wrote but never released. Just so that they don't rot on my computers. Maybe somebody else finds these useful.

The blog posts usually describe my motivation to write these modules and also what problems I encountered when writing them.

http://blogs.perl.org/mt/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=227&tag=virtual%20spring%20cleaning&limit=20
I'm trying to keep a list of all the features I would like in Dancer::SearchApp. These features and changes range from large (index and search video subtitle files and link to the scenes in the movie) to small (implement suggestions). Usually, I keep the list of these features in a Pod file ...

Starting to clean up some of my distributions and some of my undistributed code. Publishing is liberating.
By Max Maischein on March 27, 2016 10:07 PM. At the 2016 German Perl Workshop in Nuremberg I first released and demonstrated a simple local search engine created from Elasticsearch with Perl for the surrounding infrastructure. The search application is distributed via CPAN as Dancer::SearchApp.

My Firefox setup

I've updated my Firefox setup, thanks to Google and others being obnoxious in telling me that they remember me:

uBlockhttps://www.ublock.org/

My adblocker of choice.

Self-Destructing Cookieshttps://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/self-destructing-cookies/

This removes cookies from websites whenever I close their tab. If I want a website to remember me, I can whitelist them when the close notification appears.

Custom /etc/hostshttp://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

This blocks lots and lots of other advertising hosts and even magically blocks advertisements on my mobile phone when it's using my home wireless network.

OK, one of these is full-satirical and the other is half-satirical, but both seem technically possible.
