Slashdot Asks: How Will You Replace Google Reader?

boldsoon I've been using The Old Reader (335 comments)

I've been using The Old Reader. It's not that bad, it's way better than when I tried it a few months ago. Good at home, good at work and hope it will improve at mobile. I will probably stop using google chat because of this change, and will only receive my e-mails via mobile client/Outlook. Just hope Google don't delete all my feeds for Google Alerts.

What a 'Six Strikes' Copyright Notice Looks Like

boldsoon Re:SOPA vs 6 Strikes (273 comments)

I noticed it too. But I hope this mild approach will push the sharing software further in accommodate our privacy, since we can't take it for granted anymore. On another stance, hopefully, people will continue to share, and the moral grounds in wich each one takes "piracy" into their personal access of copyright material will be based on economically and intellectual grounds rather than by a black or white of legal or illegal stance.

RMS Speaks Out Against Ubuntu

boldsoon Re:I'm usually hard for privacy but you know what (597 comments)

The question should be how can you be social in privacy and transparency. The best social experience is when you can control and see clearly your information path. For what I've understand the dash will send your query to canonical, even if you're searching your personal information trying to reach your personal data in your personal computer.

Food and Agriculture Organization suggest eating insects can help fight hunger

boldsoon boldsoon writes  |  about a year ago

boldsoon (2769527) writes "A FAO study presented today at the International Conference on Forests for Food Security and Nutrition in Rome told us that, in a large range of eatable insects, those produce much more food than the animals we've been relying on. "On average, insects use just 2 kg of feed to produce 1 kilo of insect meat. Cattle, at the other end of the spectrum, require 8 kg of feed to produce 1 kg of beef.""
