In 2010, Airbus initiated a research collaboration with ENAC and Université de Toulouse III on a prospective study to define and validate an “Aeronautical Font”: the challenge was to improve the display of information on the cockpit screens, in particular in terms of legibility and comfort of reading, and to optimize the overall homogeneity of the cockpit.
A very clear, good-looking font, free to use.
It's a couple of watts per base station antenna, and that's just the peak if there's something to transmit. Same as with 4G right now.
The whole panic about 5G is that there will be more base stations than before, but that actually *lowers* radiation levels. Especially on the device side, the only side people have to care about. But it's easier to concentrate all the hate and stupidity on the tower than on the iPhone in your hand.
I worry that every time someone claims they are helping the environment by making some activity "more efficient", they will ultimately be proven wrong.
More efficient means cheaper, which means we just do more of whatever it is.
Plane travel is the classic example, but there are others.
If we want to curb emissions, we need to add friction in the right places - which literally means making things more expensive and less competitive. That's a very hard sell in today's world.
Understanding environmental impact is hard.
Me and my gas-guzzling mini-van have a much lower impact than most "green car" owners... simply because I drive way, way less than average.
Planes aren't bad for the environment because they burn lots of fuel. Planes are bad for the environment because they are convenient and encourage, enable and create a market for massive amounts of travel.
Switching to advanced, super-clean vehicles won't improve things nearly as much as telecommuting would.

@kaniini regular reminder that discord bans people from using third party clients, it’s even worse than just a proprietary service. using it to host FOSS communities in no circumstance is sane

For real though, I don't get why anyone working in science in the 21st century would be anything other than anticapitalist. Or critical of it at the very least. It does nothing but make our lives difficult.
We're all constantly grovelling for funds. Important articles are hidden behind paywalls. We need to pay to get stuff published. And I'm so tired of hearing things like "yes we'd love to hire you, but we don't have any funding right now."

again we have a much too dry spring.
I became a bakers apprentice in 2003. I have been baking since then and it has become worse and worse. We have not had a good grain harvest since 4 years. It has become a sad thing to get on the phone with the farmer who farms our grains. The next harvest is already in danger.
it has begun! and all I hear from people is: "the climate is changing naturally anyway"
Awesome. Now AMP is lying to users via the URL. This is what scam sites do.
AMP pages are beautiful, but links to AMP pages? Not so much ...
Until today! Signed exchanges are here: now you can get instant loading for AMP on your own domain! 🙌 #AMPConf
