• TNW: Lowlands voor geeks

    Het succes van The Next Web, het tweedaagse techfest van Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten en Patrick de Laive, valt alleen al af te lezen aan de alsmaar groeiende omvang van het evenement. Ooit paste het hele festival in De Gashouder in Amsterdam, vorig jaar waren er al tenten en barakken aan vastgebouwd, dit jaar vormde The Dome het middelpunt van een aanpalend festivalterrein compleet met catering en demopodia. En meer dan ooit drong de vergelijking met Lowlands op.

  • Hilmar Mulder over succes Mercur-winnaar Libelle

    Libelle is stoerder en spraakmakender dan soms wordt gedacht, vindt hoofdredacteur Hilmar Mulder. De Mercur-uitreiking geeft haar gelijk: de Sanoma-titel wint de prijs voor beste magazinemerk, krijgt bijna de publieksprijs en is genomineerd voor beste marketing-actie, Libelle TV en Mulder zelf. Wat is het geheim van Libelle?

  • Reminder: These are the members of Congress who sold you out to ISPs (and how much they made doing it)

    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai might be the villain du jour, but it’s important to remember that he didn’t act alone. Below you’ll find a list of all his accomplices and how much they received from telecoms during their last election cycle. Think of it as a handy cheat sheet detailing who not to vote for in 2018 — if you’re still salty about net neutrality, anyway. All credit goes to The Verge for compiling the list. Up for grabs are all 435 seats in the House of Repre
  • Swallow this: The future of exploitation is a pill that destroys human rights

    A group of researchers recently developed a ‘smart pill’ system. The idea is that a patient will swallow a pill coated in gel containing a sensor, and doctors can track use. It’s not the first time this has been done, but this experiment focused on fighting opioid addiction, which makes it politically interesting. And that’s why it’s terrifying. The pill contains a patient’s medication and a sensor. It sends information to a wearable device which transmits da
  • Amerikaanse regels voor netneutraliteit ingetrokken

    Toezichthouder FCC heeft de regels voor netneutraliteit voor de Amerikaanse markt ingetrokken. Drie Republikeinse commissarissen stemden voor, twee Democraten tegen.
    Het betekent dat internetaanbieders niet langer verplicht zijn om data op dezelfde wijze te behandelen en bijvoorbeeld aparte prijsafspraken kunnen maken met partijen als Netflix en YouTube. Die voorrang zouden kunnen krijgen bij het dataverkeer. Grootste nadeel is dat vermogende partijen zo kunnen worden voorgetrokken.

  • Facebook to add pre-roll ads and other changes to videos

    Facebook today revealed several updates to its advertising policies concerning videos. The bad news is that six-second pre-roll ads will be coming to dedicated video tabs such as Watch. The less bad news is that it looks like they won’t be infiltrating News Feed. Approximately noone on the entire internet wants to click on a video and immediately watch an advertisement, but Facebook wants to try pre-rolls out to see if it works well enough to strike a happy tone with both publishers

  • Film critic admits he purposefully lowered a perfect Rotten Tomatoes score

    For about two weeks, ‘Lady Bird,’ a coming of age tale directed by Greta Gerwig, was the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes. It sat at a perfect 100 percent score after nearly 200 reviews. And then came Cole Smithey, a film critic known for his contrarian reviews, to give the movie its first ‘rotten’ score. Let’s ignore for a moment the fact that he originally scored the movie a B-, which is a passing grade by pretty much any standard.  Let’s als
  • Net neutrality is dead [Update]

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today voted to end Obama-era net neutrality protections. Voting along party lines, the ballots were cast as expected with the Republican-controlled FCC ending the Title II classification and effectively handing control of the internet to ISPs like Comcast, Time Warner, and AT&T. The contentious vote was not without its tense moments. At one point the room was cleared for what we’re speculating was a bomb threat. Reporters were told to leave
