Wiring Gone Wrong

Most of these wire mess images are from India. I would hate to have to troubleshoot these wire junctions and find out why someone’s telephone or internet isn’t working. I guess in North America we take proper cable management for granted. Oddly enough this is where all our tech support comes from. I would not trust the people that put up these cables to fix anything.

Hitler’s Stealth Fighter

DesScorp writes “Aviation Week reports on a television special from the National Geographic Channel on what may have been the world’s first true stealth fighter, the Horton Ho 229, a wooden design that was to include a layer of carbon material sandwiched in the leading edge to defeat radar. Northrop Grumman, experts at stealth technology from their Tacit Blue and B-2 programs, have built a full-size replica of the airframe and tested it at their desert facilities where they determined that the design was indeed stealthy, and would have been practically invisible to Britain’s Chain Home radar system of WWII.”

OLPC Fork Sugar On a Stick Goes 1.0

Marten writes “It was more than a year ago that Walter Bender left OLPC and started SugarLabs.org. Now, the first version of the new project has been released. Sugar on a Stick is a USB-drive that runs on Mac and PC-style hardware. ‘The open-source education software developed for the “0 laptop” can now be loaded onto a USB stick to give aging PCs and Macs a new interface and custom educational software.’ Bender said, ‘What we are doing is taking a bunch of old machines that barely run Windows 2000, and turning them into something interesting and useful for essentially zero cost. It becomes a whole new computer running off the USB key; we can breathe new life into millions of decrepit old machines.'”

Protesting China’s Required Censorship Software

dinoyum writes “Censorship in China is nothing new, but the level of action taken to force Chinese citizens to comply has garnered global recognition. China marked the date July 1st, 2009 as the day manufacturers will be forced to install filtering software on all new PCs. While many have resorted to digitally lashing out against Green Dam, Chinese artist and designer of the famous Bird’s Nest at the Beijing Olympics, Ai Weiwei has decided upon a different approach. ‘[He wants] a general internet strike — no work, no games, no email or anything else online — for 24 hours on the date the government plans to require censorship software on all new computers, he says, will be a quiet act of rebellion. Not coincidentally, July 1 is the 88th anniversary of the Communist Party of China. Though he posted the idea, Ai wants to leave the meaning to those who participate. “I gave almost no explanation about why I’m doing it,” Ai said. “I just give the structure and people will fill in their own meaning. I don’t want to be political first. I wanted to set up an act that everyone can easily accept, and then realize the power later. I want people to see their own power,” he said.'”
