Odlična ideja koja vrlo dobro ilustruje broj ljudi koji koriste bicikl za prevoz, koji iz godine u godinu raste. Na žalost, Novom Sadu i te kako nedostaje biciklističke infrastrukture. A o interakciji između učesnika u saobraćaju ne bih ni diskutovao jer je na sramno niskom nivou — pritom mislim prvenstveno na pešake.

Evo ga TL;DR:

In June 2014, a researcher named Aleksandr Kogan developed a personality-quiz app for Facebook […] about 270,000 people installed Kogan’s app […] but as with any Facebook developer at the time, Kogan could access data about those users or their friends. And when Kogan’s app asked for that data, it saved that information into a private database instead of immediately deleting it. Kogan provided that private database, containing information about 50 million Facebook users, to the voter-profiling company Cambridge Analytica […]

Cambridge Analytica has significant ties to some of President Trump’s most prominent supporters and advisers. […] Cambridge Analytica also used its “psychographic” tools to make targeted online ad buys for the Brexit “Leave” campaign, the 2016 presidential campaign of Ted Cruz, and the 2016 Trump campaign.

Navodno je zbog ovog skandala Zakerberg dampovao brdo FB akcija čime je spasio desetine miliona dolara svog bogatstva.

Petak je odličan dan da trigerujete svoju egzistencijalnu krizu.

Korak 1: pogledaj ovaj gif/video sa poređenjem veličina poznatih zvezda.

Korak 2: skapiraj da crna rupa NGC 1277 otprilike 24 puta veća od najveće zvezde prikazane u gifu.

Korak 3: skapiraj koliki su onda prostori između ovih objekata.

Korak 4: egzistencijalna kriza ✅

This lovely little burbling creek is actually a deadly waterway that has dragged down everyone who ever set foot in it.

Najbolji opis kojeg sam čuo za ovaj “potok” je: “Reka izvrnuta na stranu”, zato što je potok daleko dublji nego što je širok (može se bukvalno preskočiti, ali ako upadneš 100% umireš jer te povuče dole).

We learned that tomato juice being on ground level is […] not overly fresh […] However, as soon as you have it at 30,000 feet, tomato juice shows, let’s say, its better side. […] Here’s why: When you’re cruising at altitude, cabin pressure is low — similar to the atmosphere one mile above sea level. That low pressure does several things. Your blood gets less oxygen, which makes your odor and taste receptors less sensitive. Mucus in your nasal cavities also expands in the low pressure environment, which makes it even harder to taste.

On top of that, most airlines keep the cabin at about 10 to 15 percent humidity. This dries out your nose and mouth, cutting down your sense of taste even more. Congestion, dehydration — it feels kind of like having a bad cold. Sweets are less sweet, salty food is less salty, and […] as a result, most airplane food tastes bland, but tomato juice actually tastes better up in the air.

Ja recimo redovno pijem sok od paradajza na letovima, ali ga pijem i u normalnim okolnostima, međutim u avionu mi osetno više prija, i sad znam zašto.

Još jedna zanimljiva povezana priča od mog prijatelja koji je bio na kampovanju i poneo je brdo neke konzervirane namenske hrane koja mu se toliko svidela da je kupio još konzervi kad se vratio sa kampovanja da ima kući da napravi klopu na brzinu kad ga mrzi da kuva. Međutim, kad je probao konzervu te hrane kući nije mogao da veruje koliko je imala intenzivan i slan ukus. Ispostavilo se da je hrana bila namenjena za kampovanje na velikim nadmorskim visinama i da je spremana na isti način kao i obroci u avionu (sa mnogo više začina i soli, kako bi na tim visinama imala sličan ukus kao ista jela na tlu).

The just-world hypothesis is the assumption that a person’s actions are inherently inclined to bring morally fair and fitting consequences to that person, to the end of all noble actions being eventually rewarded and all evil actions eventually punished. In other words, the just-world hypothesis is the tendency to attribute consequences to—or expect consequences as the result of—a universal force that restores moral balance. This belief generally implies the existence of cosmic justice, destiny, divine providence, desert, stability, or order.

Just-world hypothesis on Wikipedia

I’m convinced that our decision for how much effort to exert on work is not governed by the rational part of our brain. It’s part primal – fear of insecurity and belonging to a social structure – part ego – accomplishment as confirmation of existence and your salary as a concrete number to compare favorably to others – and part culture and habit.

RSS was strategically killed by Google, Facebook, and Twitter and the rest of the web followed. RSS was basically the open source TiVo of content distribution.Content not wrapped in ads, isn’t good for business. Period.

Dan danas koristim RSS za najbitnije sadržaje koje ne želim da propustim, i neizmerno mi je žao što se praktično sva distribucija sadržaja danas nalazi na društvenim mrežama.

Više o svemu ovome uskoro na ovom sajtu, već nedeljama planiram da sednem i napišem poduži tekst o planovima u vezi ovog sajta, nedavnim promenama, ali na žalost nikako da se latim posla. Neka ovo bude još jedan podsetnik.

Potencijalni naslednik GoProa. Kamera snima 360 video, ali to nije ono što je kul stvar. Kul je to što sve što ti treba da radiš je da je držiš… nekako, da snima. Softver kasnije radi stabilizaciju, kao i neprimetno spajanje videa iz prednje i zadnje kamere, što je zapravo način kako se dobija 360 video (svaka od kamera snima po 190º).

Primeri koje imaju na sajtu su neverovatni. I da, da ne zaboravim, osnivači su bivši zaposleni iz Instagrama, tako da se može očekivati i dobra integracija sa društvenim mrežama.

I dok Strava i dalje pokušava da akcentuje društveni aspekt svog proizvoda, za ovako korisne informacije moramo da se oslonimo na nezavisne developere.

O’Kif je napravio alat koji pruža fenomenalan uvid u tvoje aktivnosti sa Strave iz godine u godinu. Meni je posebno interesantan pregled PR-ova po segmentima, što vrlo jasno ukazuje na rezultate treninga.

Na primer, ja sam saznao da sam u 2015. segment Beočin – Crveni Čot popeo za 37:30 (samo jedan pokušaj), u 2016. sam ga penjao za 31:20 kroz pet pokušaja, a u 2017. lični rekord mi je 29:58.
