Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Russia's internet regulator has threatened to block Twitter, in the most detailed warning on the options Moscow is considering in its efforts to tighten restrictions over the internet.

 

"We can block Twitter or Facebook in Russia tomorrow within a few minutes," Maksim Ksenzov, deputy head of Roskomnadzor, the telecom, IT and communications supervisory agency, said in an interview published by daily newspaper Izvestia on Friday.

 

"If at any point we believe that the consequences of 'switching off' social networks will be less significant than the damage done to Russian society by the unconstructive position of the leadership of international companies, we will do what we have to under the law," he added.

A Digital Time Capsule: Google Maps Now Lets You Travel Back in Time

A Digital Time Capsule: Google Maps Now Lets You Travel Back in Time | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

Google Maps has long given us a quick and easy way to explore the world without the hassle or costs of travel. Now, Google Maps lets you travel back in time at some of your favorite virtual vacation spots.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

 

Google announced today, April 23, that Google Maps Street View for desktops will now allow users to travel back in time seven years and view places on the map from 2007 to the present. By clicking on the clock icon in the upper left-hand portion of a Street View image, you can move the slider through time and select a thumbnail to view the place as it was years ago.

 

With this time travel function, you will be able to see the rise and fall of infrastructure, landmarks and the landscape of different places. For instance, users can see the construction of the Freedom Tower inNew York City and the 2014 World Cup Stadium in Fortaleza, Brazil. Or users can view Japan’s road to restoration in Onagawa through images from before and after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. You can also use the Google Maps’ time travel function for less historic travel, like simply enjoying the different seasons in a new or foreign place.

De overheid en ICT-projecten vormen een slecht huwelijk waarin jaarlijks miljarden worden verspild. Maar van een afrekencultuur is totaal geen sprake.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Een parlementaire commissie naar falende ICT-projecten is geen overbodige luxe. Hoogleraar beleidsinformatica Hans Mulder van de Universiteit Antwerpen gooide eind april tijdens de eerste hoorzitting van de tijdelijke commissie ICT projecten nog (ruwe) olie op het vuur door aan te geven dat de overheid jaarlijks vier à vijf miljard euro verliest aan mislukte ICT-projecten en dat eenderde van de grote projecten op een dusdanige manier mislukken dat het systeem nooit in gebruik wordt genomen.
