Slack on a SNES

Bertrand Fan ist Entwickler bei Slack und großer SNES-Fan. Also ganz naheliegend, dass er beides kombiniert und Slack auf einem Super Nintendo zum Laufen bringt:

I recently learned that in the mid 90s in Japan, the Super Nintendo had a peripheral called a Satellaview, which was a satellite modem that would receive data broadcasts from Nintendo.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Probably not, but if you can beam satellite signals to a SNES, you can probably run Slack on it.

Cooles Projekt und geniales Fazit:

Follow your dreams, even if your dreams are stupid.

The future is here today: You can’t play Bach on Facebook because Sony says they own his compositions

Boing Boing-Posting von letzter Woche, das zeigt, was für ein Wahnsinn nach der Pro-Upload-Filter-Abstimmung von heute absofort noch viel häufiger auf uns zukommen wird:

James Rhodes, a pianist, performed a Bach composition for his Facebook account, but it didn’t go up — Facebook’s copyright filtering system pulled it down and accused him of copyright infringement because Sony Music Global had claimed that they owned 47 seconds‘ worth of his personal performance of a song whose composer has been dead for 300 years.
