ACTA Document Leaks With Details On Mexico Talks

phypsilon They are "committed to conclude ACTA in 2010" (87 comments)

The document is very sparse on details. They seem to be negotiating four topics:
1. civil enforcements
2. customs
3. internet
4. transparency (wtf??)

But the most interesting quote is: "Parties remain committed to conclude ACTA in 2010."

Congratulations to all of us open source enthusiasts and fellow nerds.

Ten Technologies That Shouldn't Have Died?

phypsilon Airship today (639 comments)

About two years ago, i visited my parents at home during the summer holidays. One morning i stood in front of our house and looked at the city of Lindau, Germany. And suddenly i saw a silverish cigar in the sky above the city like i had seen it on many ancient photos. That moment i knew i had seen a modern Airship for the first time.
They are building this Airship in Friedrichshafen, a town at the lake of constance where they also built most of the great Airships of our century, including the Hindenburg. And this Airship has the same name as all his ancient brothers: ZEPPELIN.

for further information take a look at the hompage of "Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH".
