.io is the TLD for the Chagos Archipelago. 50 years ago, the UK Government deported all Chagossians. They lost all rights to their homeland, now including the valuable .io TLD. To this day, the Chagossians continue their fight for the right to return.

Krankheit oder dringende Familiennotfälle seien bei Apple kein Grund, bei der Arbeit zu fehlen. Farrell sagt, er habe "eine Dienstreise abgesagt, als meine schwangere Frau die Treppe heruntergefallen war und ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert wurde". Das sei von seinem Vorgesetzten als Leistungsdefizit in seiner Personalakte vermerkt worden.

One of the beauties of English is its elasticity. Without a single authority governing its rules, English is truly a democratic, utilitarian language, and it becomes what it needs to be to fit the situation. It's a kludgey, ad hoc mess, yes, and its inconsistencies are truly maddening. And yet when another language needs to borrow a word for a new use, English is ready to provide it. We loot and barter vocabulary easily, stealing words from France and trading them over to China because we don't give two shits about the cultural sanctity of language. We are the Swiss army knife of linguistics.

To take that away; to smooth out the inconsistencies and impose a logical order on it would be to rob English of its greatest use to other languages; to be the unstable alpha branch, readily accepting commits from whoever ares to contribute, and letting the best features rise to the top for adoption by other, more stable branches.

Friedrich L. Bauer, einer der Pioniere der Informatik, ist am 26. März
im Alter von 91 Jahren am Donnerstag verstorben. In einem seiner letzten
Werke, der Kurzen Geschichte der Informatik (2007), versuchte Bauer,
die Informatik von der Mathematik abzugrenzen. Nach einigen Anläufen
verwarf er in dem Buch alle möglichen Definitionen und erklärte: Die
Informatik dient der Befreiung des Menschen von der Last eintöniger
geistiger Tätigkeit. So, wie es einen homo faber in jedem Mathemtiker
gebe, gebe es einen homo cogitans in jedem Informatiker.

Southwark Crown Court heard he had set up a fake web domain which closely resembled that of the court service's official address. He then emailed the prison's custody inbox with instructions for his release.
