About ReDigi.

Funny that you should mention book publishing.

I went to college in Romania. Do you know how we get our textbooks? From the copy shop in campus.

The copy shop keeps a copy of each textbook, and they make new copies for students who buy them.

You’re talking about early 20th century, when copy machines were not as advanced or cheap.

About Beijing public housing.

In Romania students sublease dorm rooms at public universities, because they’re subsidised.


@ryan I’m fairly certain Estonia is a NATO country. It’s Finland, their neighbor, that is not.

I can’t find where Estonia’s government shut down their internet; I thought that story was about a country in Asia somewhere.

Also interesting, Estonia has back-up sites for their servers in Luxembourg

And to keep up with the music theme:

SpaceX brings all the GPS to the yard
And they’re like, it’s better than yours
Damn right it’s better than yours
I can teach you, but I have to charge

Congress approves act that opens US government data to the public - Would those redactions be done with Black Number 1?

I meant to do a correction on that this week but forgot again. I also went back to find the govt takedown story and it turns out it was hackers, not govt (unless they were posing as hackers).
