The Tesla is definitely a luxury item here in Sweden. I drive a Renault diesel and I could buy three of those for the price of a Tesla (yeah, I know, apples/oranges...) TCO for a Tesla will (sadly) be a lot higher than for a fossil fuel car, simply because of the high purchase price.

How does this relate to what the team at hypothes.is (http://hypothes.is/) are trying to achieve?

Textus are targeting text, hypothes.is are "building an open platform for the collaborative evaluation of knowledge" -- i.e. annotating the web.

A recent comment by Rufus Pollock, https://lists.okfn.org/pipermail/open-humanities/2015-Februa...

"Re other Open Annotation, we obviously are very excited about annotatorjs (which we created) and hypothes.is. I would reiterate that for static texts in the Textus structure, the whole point is you can do annotation in a much easier and nicer way (you don't need to run off addressing into the DOM) and that's what Textus' viewer takes advantage of.

Just to spare someone else from googling it:

MVNO = Mobile Virtual Network Operator.

That was my first thought as well. However, with them going after single words like "edge" and "thrust", I believe this is not possible.

From a user perspective, it makes sense to upload the data so that you're not constrained to your phone for viewing your info. And Microsoft gets a good use case for Azure - I imagine they might use this in promoting Azure services.

I would recommend Cryptonomicon.

About the photo: I think it looks fairly representative of a colorized photo of that time. Note that this is not a photoshop job - it was colorized in 1920, probably by the photographer.

I agree, my grandmother has boxes full of photos that look like this.

Here's another example https://www.pinterest.com/pin/465911523921633003/

The older you get, the less you are concerned with age, and more with actual competence.

I'm confused by this bit:

"...the scientists had recorded the images on magnetic tape, played it back on a TV monitor, then snapped photographs of the TV monitor. What he had were those images, sporadically placed along rolls of film as long as the wingspan of a Boeing 787."

Can someone elaborate on this?

Sounds like Kinescope http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinescope - But instead of capturing the full framerate of the original video like you would for TV, they only captured one frame per visible slice of land to save space

-----


They did the same thing for the video from the moon. The feed from the lander was displayed on a TV in the control room,and then that TV was being filmed by a camera pointed at it. If I remember correctly it was to do with a different format than used by the US television, and lack of equipment which could covert such material in real time.
