If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
Miloslav Druckmüller: Moon mathematicians under the lens
2014-08-02- Ping photography world
Shooting eclipse perhaps the most challenging astronomical photography. First, the light and shade of the transients, the photographer needs to quickly adjust the camera parameters are accurate; Secondly, if the shooting fails, you may need to wait several years. Czech mathematician Miloslav Druckmüller is a total solar eclipse fanatic who chase shot. Through his time and accurate calculation of the eclipse track, from 1980 to date to India, Chile, Angola, France, Zambia, Australia, Uganda, Kenya and many other places to shoot a total solar eclipse. Miloslav think it presents a challenging eclipse photos, each map requires a different degree of multiple exposure image synthesis. Distinguish between the use of highly sophisticated software, through the adaptation of human vision can be filtered in order to obtain such a different moon scene.-Sorry for the translation!
