Let’s go for my web review for the week 2021-48.
Tags: tech, microsoft
Microsoft doing Microsoft things… those GAFAMs are all the same.
Tags: tech, nvidia, arm, antitrust
In my opinion, this is a good thing if that merger doesn’t happen.
Tags: tech, internet, security, routing
Always amazed when such important routing systems are reached through very insecure means.
Tags: tech, ai, machine-learning
A reminder of why machine learning is currently so power hungry. It’s in fact (still) highly inefficient.
Tags: tech, ai, machine-learning, complexity
Or why we should keep an eye on transfer learning. This is one of the promising way to get a more efficient machine learning process. Might come with its own challenges in methodology complexity though, it’ll likely be easy to do it wrong and to notice that too late.
Tags: tech, web, mozilla, google
Despite the problems with Mozilla’s politics and funding, this is the main reason why I use Firefox as my main browser (even on my smartphone). We can’t have a monopoly on which organization influence the web standards… unfortunately we get fairly close from that position.
Tags: tech, peertube, framasoft
Really nice to see PeerTube making so much progress. Hope we’ll see more and more nice content hosted on PeerTube instances.
Tags: tech, git, sourcehut
Nice to see such an organization use SourceHut.
Tags: tech, programming, python
Good reminder on why mypy is an essential mitigation to use when dealing with Python. This avoids some quite common mistakes.
Tags: copyright, public-domain
Nice advent calendar listing some of the works to enter public domain next year.
Bye for now!
