My View on the Chip Shortage

No wonder there is a chip shortage because some use them differently, especially by using graphics processing units (GPU) for the blooming cryptocurrency business. Usually, people say - when there is a heavy demand the price goes down, the product matures through the 'democratization' process. Now with the environmental problems, I believe this is stopped, there will be a lot more inflation and products going out of stock. We can expect a poorer future regarding material products, I just hope civil society won't undermine the right to social protection. The Internet has been mainstreamed, good times should occur.

Crypto Currencies – Don't Let the Fear of Missing Out Catch You

Please don't skip the meals in the student restaurants or sell the only real estate you have, just to buy a cryptocurrency. You should execute long-lasting due diligence (deep studying) before buying it. I went to the conference back in 2017 at the Faculty of Economics and Business and I would like to write what I have learned there.

Sometimes they say that the Bitcoin system is using too much electric power, it is not eco-friendly. In the conference, they concluded that the next big thing in the cryptocurrencies is Ethereum - because it's programmable and it's the way all new coins are coming out. It uses 'smart contracts' — running on Ether —  to get things done. It is unclear how much electric power is using, is there any actual difference between Bitcoin, it remains to be seen.

Major Attacks to Computer Freedom

Attackers were able to place malicious code in the PHP central code repository by impersonating key developers
I usually use PHP for web programming, but on this Blogger service Python is being used. Python is more popular than ever, it can easily be empowered with AI software, it is unclear whether Python guys are making the attacks, trying to prove their superiority. I will remain faithful to PHP for now, but my gut feeling is telling me I should lookout.
There are also political problems. It's not nice to see open source community eating itself from the inside. I hope that the time of crisis in the Free Software Foundation will end soon. LibrePlanet and other complementary projects should continue.

Please Visit My Digital Art Page

From time to time I feel my art images are like tulips in Holland Tulip mania - but then again my website isn't visited a lot, so I don’t know what’s going on. Either way, feel free to visit my Digital Art page - www.luka.jagor.info - I would be delighted.
