sixtus Die eigene politische Position als "Mitte" zu definieren, also gleiche Abstände zu beiden Enden einzunehmen, bedeutet ja, dass letztlich die Ränder darüber entscheiden, wo man steht. Je extremer etwa die Rechte nach rechts marschiert, umso weiter wandert die Mitte mit ihr.

random_walker Often users have no realistic way to make pro-privacy choices: for example, switching costs may be too high. This is the case in social networks and other apps with strong network effects. So, the fact that people still use Facebook doesn't mean they don't care about privacy.

wellformedness At Google a HUGE portion of our work involves grammar writing. One of our two grammar packages, Thrax, is a DSL parsed using (Eric Schmidt's) Lex and Yacc.

beritmiriam Ich denke mittlerweile, dass jedes aus öffentlicher Hand bezuschusste Aufenthaltsstipendium verpflichtend auch ein paralleles Stipendium für Menschen ausschreiben sollte, die wegen Sorgearbeit keinen Ortswechsel vollziehen können.

plomlompom Kürzt halt den viel zu langen Arbeitstag vorne *&* hinten, dann braucht's weder jetlagierende Zeitumstellungen, noch den Krieg zwischen Eulen & Lerchen über "Winter- oder eher Sommerzeit abschaffen". Was für Verrenkungen, nur um die Unverschämtheiten eurer Lohnarbeit abzufedern.
