The grindarap: Faroe Islands

The grindarap: Faroe Islands | Aneddotica Magazine | Scoop.it
A few weeks ago (https://vocidalmondo.wordpress.com/2015/07/28/grindadrap-una-strage-di-cetacei-camuffata-tradizione/) we wrote about the slaughter of whales that takes place every year in the Faroe Islands: the grindadrap. An event presented as tradition but that, instead, is based on economic interests relevant for the economy of these remote islands. The 2015 "event" directly affect the Italian foreign minister. Alice Rusconi Bodin, italian citizen, was arrested for interfering with the traditional "grindadráp", the local whaling. An arrest that follows the arrest of another italian citizen, Marianna Baldo, activist of Sea Shepherd, locked up in prison on July 23 for the same reason. Referring to the authorities they, and four volunteers of the Sea Shepherd coming from different countries, could be "guilty" of raising between a pod of pilot whales that were targeted to be slaughtered during a grindadráp and hunters. Even then 61 pilot whales were pushed ashore and killed with blows

From Chaos Communication Camp 2015 @   Advances in computing and communications mean that we can cost-effectively store every book, sound recording, movie, software package, and public web page ever created, and provide access to these collections via the Internet to students and adults all over the world. By mostly using existing institutions and funding sources, we can build this as well as compensate authors within what is current worldwide library budget. 20 petabytes and growing, the Internet Archive is the 250th most popular website. This talk will discuss the technology and politics of building a large library. https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/Main_Page

Tornando indietro di 500 anni

Tornando indietro di 500 anni | Aneddotica Magazine | Scoop.it
  Se un tempo si scontravano Federico I e Carlo V per il dominio europeo e la conquista dell’Italia oggi possiamo respirare quei momenti non sui libri di storia ma nella realtà quotidiana. Se torniamo indietro di 500 anni viviamo un parallelismo con la storia contemporanea, basterà sostituire qualche nome, qualche paese, ma la ripetizione si scoprirà coincidente. I libri di storia hanno il grande difetto di riportare gli eventi che hanno caratterizzato il passato in maniera piatta e lineare esaltando le battaglie e le conquiste, i giochi politici e i sotterfugi di corte ma scordano che, sia l’estensione temporale dei fatti narrati sia l’azione che avevano sul territorio, portavano a delle ripercussioni davvero gravi sulla gente che viveva a quel tempo. I libri di storia non parlano della gente, dei Cittadini, ma solo dei re e degli eserciti, dei cambi di equilibrio dei poteri e della nuova configurazione dei territori. Pochi o meglio nulli gli accenni alla sofferenza della

2015 CCCamp: rad1o says “Aneddotica”

2015 CCCamp: rad1o says “Aneddotica” | Aneddotica Magazine | Scoop.it
rad1o The rad1o badge contains a full-featured SDR (software defined radio) half-duplex transceiver, operating in a frequency range of about 50 MHz - 4000 MHz, and is software compatible to the HackRF. It is based on a Wimax transceiver which sends I/Q samples in the range of 2.3 to 2.7 GHz to an ARM Cortex M4 CPU. The CPU can process the data standalone for various applications (like FM receiving, spectrogram display, RF controlled power outlets, etc.), or pass the samples to a computer using USB 2.0 where further signal processing can be done e.g. using GNU Radio. Radio signal transmission is also possible in standalone mode by software running on the ARM CPU, or from samples that are sent to rad1o through USB. see more: https://rad1o.badge.events.ccc.de
