The Tek 0042: The World Needs Aaron Swartz

The world needs more people like Aaron Swartz and less people like Carmen Ortiz. In this episode, we discuss the loss and point some fingers.

The unedited notes:

You are the product: FB news

FB adds "Graph Search" and removes your ability to opt out of search results
 
Remember, you are the product:
 
Why does Tek Syndicate have FB?
  • To spread our content
  • To give stuff away (mostly because this is how many companies like to give things away)
  • To harvest users for the dark lord

I don't agree with what Aaron didto himself but I hope he makes a BIG difference.

 

posted 1 year 3 months ago

Honestly i dont agree with it either but. Would we be talking about the situation if he hadnt killed himself? It would have been just another rant or something and that would have been it.

posted 1 year 3 months ago

agreed. some times the public only takes note of things once a terrible death has taken place.

The media only seems to highlight the "bad" stuff

Sounds like Logan may hold happiness hostage! Send in the marines! lol

posted 1 year 3 months ago

sorry logan, couldn't resist. it occured to me that stuff like this is part of the reason we like you; you a person, and yet your vids are pretty proffesional, yet you don't appear to take it too seriously, and have fun doing what you do.

So, you tell us there is an IRC channel... but then you give a web url instead of the irc server and channel name.. :p shame on you, some of us actually run IRC clients you know! had to do some digging to find it.

posted 1 year 3 months ago

It's important to note that the solar cell record is specifically for "Thin Film Solar Cells". Crystalline semiconductor solar cells have been pumping out efficiencies far higher than 20% for quite a long time. Multi-Junction solar cells pushed past 40% in around 2007.

Better thin film cells are something to celebrate though. Since they are not made of a lump of semiconductor they are massively cheaper to produce and much lighter and more durable.
