  1. In Oracle v. Google, a Nerd Subculture Is on Trial | Motherboard

    I love this collision between tech culture and a court made up of “normals”, as the author describes them. (Odd that the article doesn’t say what the trial’s about until the final sentence though.)

    @suegyford I think this is your answer.

    @russelldavies I’d love to see a movie that’s edited in the same way as most movies’ trailers.

    @russelldavies That was good. That all day, with Max Headroom doing the news at the top of the hour.

    There should be some kind of difficult music chaser on BBC4 once #Eurovison’s over, so I can recalibrate. I fear I’m broken.

    It’s amazing what two dozen #Eurovision songs do to one’s critical faculties. “This is alright!” #GBR

    @blech That’s allowed!

    I’ve only seen two non-#Eurovision tweets so far, and they read like people bursting into the wrong room, saying something inappropriate.

    @cityofsound The Guardian’s own report on this is so vague and bland as to be confusing. No background.…

    @genmon I wonder if you can randomly create and evolve accents to find the most pleasing, suitable and understandable.

    That 'Remember you can't vote for the UK entry' warning also comes up on the screen of every other European country too #Eurovision

    America tunes into #eurovision for the first time.

    Fact is songs/acts on #Eurovision are now no more worthy of derision than 90% of pop music - so why is there this mass delusion once a year?

    Well, I guess that's enough internet for me today.

    A.I.s should be given their own synthetic accent, distinct from human ones
