New Protocols, Standards, File Types

Are you into virtual reality (a gamer)? What is the difference between WebGL, ‎OpenGL, WebVR? Are you into cryptocurrencies? What is the difference between Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple?

In my youth internet was becoming more and more popular, for web designers it was all about HTML, JavaScript and CSS. Web developers did programming with PHP, MYSQL, and the help of web designers.

Tomislav Uzelac is the Croatian programmer who created AMP, considered the first successful (real-time) MP3 player. When MP3 got popular it was all about MP3/MP3-VB, AAC, Ogg for people into music processing.

Now I would like to introduce you to Vladimir Vukićević and WebVR from the Mozilla community:
Vladimir Vukićević is a Serbian-born American Software Engineer, known mostly for his work on open-source graphics libraries, including those used in the Mozilla projects. Mozilla came out recently with "Firefox Reality - A new browser for virtual reality".

I hope for reconciliation between the Serbs and the Croatians at all levels.

Good luck to all of you hard-working people!

Please Stop Concreting and Other Traditional Construction Methods

Plummeting insect numbers 'threaten collapse of nature'

Exclusive: Insects could vanish within a century at current rate of decline, says global review
Stopping traditional construction - although such an event has benefits for nature - it ruins current economic indicators. I understand we could be facing a recession threshold. If so, in the end, we should know the answer to how to gain a sustainable economy that will not conflict with climate, nature. There must be more in the economy than issuing construction permits, especially in a sustainable economy - it's the entire service sector and people should focus more on service rather than physical build (concreting and other traditional construction methods)

Please listen to what the richest man in the 2018 list of the billionaires has to say:

Jeff Bezos thinks we need to build industrial zones in space in order to save Earth

Elon Musk wants us to build human colonies on Mars. Jeff Bezos has a slightly more measured take. Onstage at the Code Conference on Tuesday, the Amazon founder and CEO said that we have to start bringing parts of the industrial economy to space in order "to save Earth."
