On Roger Excoffon's best known typeface creation, Choc


“There’s an unmistakable energy in all the designs that he does,” said Tobias Frere-Jones, a Brooklyn-based typeface designer. “They project their personality so clearly. And it’s very obviously not Helvetica or not Times or any other generic thing that might be on the awning next door.”

It clearly is not a generic font, that's for sure. It is far more creative, artsy, if you want so. You would recognise everywhere, it clearly sticks out of the crowd. Still, since it has been used by so many people, companies, every single store you will find somewhere, it has worn off, so you would rather stick to something else instead.

Scientists develop liquid fuel that can store the Sun’s energy for up to 18 years

"No matter how abundant or renewable, solar power has a thorn in its side. There is still no cheap and efficient long-term storage for the energy that it generates.

The solar industry has been snagged on this branch for a while, but in the past year alone, a series of four papers has ushered in an intriguing new solution.

Scientists in Sweden have developed a specialised fluid, called a solar thermal fuel, that can store energy from the sun for well over a decade..."

Facebook is the least trustworthy of all major tech companies when it comes to safeguarding user data, according to a new national poll conducted for Fortune, highlighting the major challenges the company faces following a series of recent privacy blunders.

Only 22% of Americans said that they trust Facebook with their personal information, far less than Amazon (49%), Google (41%), Microsoft (40%), and Apple (39%).

“Facebook is in the bottom in terms of trust in housing your personal data,” said Harris Poll CEO John Gerzema. “Facebook’s crises continue rolling in the news cycle.”

The finding is just one of many that underscore the damage to Facebook’s reputation along with that of its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. In question after question, respondents ranked the company last in terms of leadership, ethics, trust, and image.

Google+ Alternatives - an interesting case made for the use of Hubzilla Channels to replace Collections


Channels (forums/feeds) on Hubziilla are quite powerful and most people just use a single one as their default feed. But you can create multiple ones with each one being a different theme/topic like G+ Collections.

The link below points to that specific post on Hubzilla. Also, very interesting point mentioned in the comments that another new social network called Osada was created by the developer of Hubzilla and it is a slightly simpler trimmed down version of Hubzilla (why? because Hubzilla is really packed with features, apps and add-ons).

Osada is open source and federated (but apparently excludes Diaspora/Pluspora which si very sad). Osada has native support for the ActivityPub protocol (W3C standard) as well as the more advanced but lesser known Zot6 protocol. It can inter-operate with other social networking applications and projects in either of these spaces, including Mastodon, Pleroma, Pixelfed, PeerTube, Funkwhale, Zap, Friendica, Hubzilla, and... show more
