Requiem for a dream: 1989–2016 - from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the Mexican Wall

This was an epoch were it looked like "we" were winning. Those of us who believed in increasing personal freedom, universal human rights and an open pluralistic society supported by liberal democracy and the rule of law.

Border seemed to be fading and our generation was excited to become citizens of the world and take advantages of challenges and opportunities in a world that was striving to become increasingly meritocratic and colorblind. Almost as in Star Trek, where it didn't matter whether you are Human, Klingon or Vulcan, as long as you are smart, determined, privileged or lucky enough to make it into Starfleet Academy (resp. the global A-list of universities and/or companies).

The US was by far not the first to give up on this dream, it might just be more significant as the US has until now been its biggest champion.

Legend has it that today, a few centuries ago in Wittenberg, a post using the latest social-media distribution technology (pamphlet printing) started what might have been the most influential social-media shit-storm of all times.

Nice library which can be used for converting html formatted content strings in JSON takeout archive to markdown:

#!/usr/bin/python

import json
import sys
import html2text

converter = html2text.HTML2Text()
converter.ignore_links = True

for filename in sys.argv[1:]:
post = json.load(open(filename))
print ('%s :' % (filename, ))
if 'content' in post:
print(converter.handle(post['content']))

The rate of female computer science grads has dropped by 50% since its peak in the mid 80ies. The theory is that this was caused by computers becoming a hobby - mostly for boys.

Around tough times, US local TV news is at its worst. When there just isn't anything new or substantial to say, 24h of frantic and breathless "reporting" of gossip, rumors and whatever happens to be going on down at the corner isn't helping anybody. Fortunately, we can now get any relevant news updates from the Internet and keep the TV off.
