An official report for the Dutch government concluded:

“(Microsoft Office) systematically collects data on a large scale ... covertly, without informing people. … Microsoft does not offer any choice with regard to the amount of data, or possibility to switch off the collection.”

Don't use Microsoft Office, use LibreOffice instead 👍

Q: If you, like me, make your income via the internet (not just through something like ecommerce or Patreon...but like a day job that is internet related), and the internet were to go away tomorrow, what other skills do you have to make a living?

I don't know if I have any, and that disappoints me.

Feel free to boost to get a bigger answer pool.

In a world that cares for its continuity and for the survival of all living and non-living things, life-cycle assessment would be absolutely mandatory and strict limits would be imposed to prevent the very existence of these things.

Meanwhile, I've never been that seduced by the idea of just setting an e-scooter on fire 🔥

"But the researchers found in a survey of e-scooter riders in Raleigh, North Carolina, that only 34% would have otherwise used a personal car or ride-sharing service. Nearly half would have biked or walked, 11% would have taken the bus, and 7% would have simply skipped the trip.

The bottom line: roughly two-thirds of the time, scooter rides generate more greenhouse-gas emissions than the alternative. And those increased emissions were greater than the gains from the car rides not taken."

"The study concludes that dockless scooters generally produce more greenhouse-gas emissions per passenger mile than a standard diesel bus with high ridership, an electric moped, an electric bicycle, a bicycle—or, of course, a walk."

Do you have Visual/UI design best practices?

I feel that we have tons of workshops, tools and literature on UX/Interaction Design but the visual part is most often lest out to simple taste (which varies from person to person).

La loi impose une authentification à deux facteurs pour les services bancaires, qui en retour imposent la possession d'un smartphone pour faire fonctionner l'option.

Au passage, ne manquez pas leur excellente obsession "SUV qui peut", consacrée au derniers soubresauts de l'industrie automobile et l'augmentation effrayante de la taille des véhicules motorisés.
