Tech Thread Bernd 05/16/2018 (Wed) 18:34:14 [Preview] No. 16528
Newest Edition, with less Ghork.


First thing first:
That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.

I also read most of this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation#Responsibility_and_accountability
I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do.
Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?

>GDPR

I've heard different opinions, but looks like this isn't very positive thing. First - it is that type of law that can be used against literally anyone because it has very wide terms. For example, even having technical logs of web server may be a target for criminal case, or even some small server apps like fail2ban can be counted as personal data processing things. Of course no one in sane mind would do this, but that is the point: having law that may be used against anyone is pretty totalitarian thing. "If we don't like you, we can easily fuck you legally and you can do nothing against it" - that is what government really thinks. So, it is easier to find another excuse to fine (or put into jail) on those whose government doesn't like.

It is really bad for small business, now they need to maintain much larger infrastructure for logging access to data etc. So, spending will increase, and then prices. Larger players like Facebook also had problems, but they have resources and time, so they'll become stronger and small companies weaker (or die). Another step to monopolization - make running own commercial web service harder. It is especially fun when going into court is costly - someone may hire a lawyer and start the process against you for messing with personal data, and even if you win, you'll spend tremendous amount of time and money in court. So, to prevent this, company would start to do different types of certifications, audits etc, i.e. transfer money from own pocket to some third-party "trusted" parasites. For some small family-owned company that has registration on site it is easier to close the site than do all that shit. Or go to some third-party service for storing personal data (that of course can be "trusted" because it will be "certified" by government and so).

Some services already gone: https://www.tunngle.net/

Will it stop Facebook or Google or someone big from selling your data to third parties? Of course no, it just is easier to you to see that they did it, although they state this almost openly in ToS already. Yes, it will be easier to delete your account (and that part also has exception that allows company to store data for long time if they need).

Looks like it is same nonsense like cookie law but now with real harm.

I'm glad you summed up things from the other side. I had no time to think about how it affects the "data controllers".

I don't know about ISS, but I've read about work on past Soviet stations, and there were plenty of things they could bring back from station. For example, something like metal details made on experimental zero-g metal casting equipment or results of botanical experiments.

Although amount of this is rarely large, so they could bring everything with crew on rotation. Maybe supply will create demand.

But Roskosmos promised to build Soyuz-based transport ship in 2006, and they still moving dates to future, now it is 2022. They also promised base on moon in 2015. I guess that impotent organization wouldn't do anything.

What these channels like Primitive Technology's and his copycats don't tell you - or rather their videos don't give back that type of experience - is that all the stuff they make are a result of awfully lot of work.
Judging by a 10-20 min video one could think: "oh that's so easy, I'm gonna gave fun on the weekend recreate their projects" or worse: "I'll quit my job and live on my DIY, off the grid homestead built from scratch by the materials I find in nature" and off he goes. Then comes the frustration of the slowness of the work and the back pain from the crouching and lifting for hours and hours days after days.
Making over 9000 mudbricks to build a deplorable little cabin is no fun for 99.9% of the romantic minded delicate city dwellers.
