If you're concerned about privacy, you shouldn't be using Zoom or other closed source & proprietary software. If you absolutely have to use it for work or school, run it on a laptop just for that purpose, or run it inside a virtual machine.

It's not as polished and it doesn't always handle large groups well, but for smaller conferences Jitsi Meet is an open source program that respects your privacy.

Side note: The Galaxy S5, S4 Active and the Sony Xperia V are IP67 water resistant with ordinarily removable back covers.

I reckon that non-replaceable batteries allow for tighter water resistance. But that can be compensated with, like I said, thicker/multi-layer rubber isolation.

Maybe it would require the phone to be just a few millimetres thicker. But I couldn't care less. I care about actual functionality and practicality.

Actually, water resistance and replaceable batteries in combination are possible.

It just needs a thicker rubber isolation and maybe a back cover held tight by screws (good enough for me). Tadaa!

Also, one could design it in a way that the removable back cover doesn't cover the entire back side of the phone, but just the battery and maybe the accessory pins that some older Samsung phones (e.g. S4, Note 3, S5, Note 4) used for wireless charging and S View cover (S4 used hall sensor for that) accessories.

Yes.

But the issue is should government's mandate what companies have to produce. In the EU and other countries they can and do, because they generally view their constituents as too stupid to be able to make choices for themselves.

If enough people in the U.S. cared more about removable battery and removable storage rather than say being water resistant up to 2 meters for up to 10 minutes or some stylish feature such as curved screen.

I kept a LG V20 an insufferable amount of time because i wanted the user replaceable battery. But looking at what most people choose, they'd rather have other options and use replaceable battery isn't a must have.

If enough ppl wanted a user replaceable battery, more ppl would choose phones with that feature, and companies would produce more phones with that option, but it doesn't happen because that's not what ppl generally care about.

In the EU, the govt will generally place artificial limits on companies and stifle innovation because the user base isn't as intelligent and they're actually physically incapable to understand what they should chose.

What the EU is gonna do is make apple either produce a cheap version with a removable battery for Africa and the EU, or they're going to make a really interesting and expensive iPhone black market.

And then also you can't use any other normal keyboard without having to think about it super hard. So I ended up deciding it wasn't worth it.

Cool link about sea-steading. That ship looks very over-engineered lol.

The first step would be to make a very small island, like 5000 sqft, and then take it out there with 1 boat, and just hang out for a few weeks and see how it reacts to the waves and such. Perhaps there could even be a wave-break around it to calm the waters under the island. Once the concept is proven, then we could think about expanding it.

I guess I could rent a boat instead of buy one, and I could just use the ship engines to re-position the island at first. But I'd still have to buy the cubes to build the island structure. We're probably still talking like $15k to try it out. Sounds fun. Maybe someday I can give it a try. It would be pretty incredible if it worked.

That is an interesting and risky idea! The majority of the earth is water in comparison to the land, and we still do not completely know everything about the depths of the oceans. If there could be fully sustainable, floating oceanic cities; it might also drive the impetus to finally uncover the depths within them.

There is some room for uncertainty though as tectonic plates have been known to rise and fall with changes happening to the ocean periodically. So its risky for the cities involved due to tsunami's, whirlpools and water-spouts. If those cities could sail AND fly then the technology could be be employed in extraterrestrial arenas.

A lot of this sounds like it is already in the beginning phases under Ocean colonization with projects like Very large floating structures, Freedom Ship and theoretical havens operating outside government territories called Sea-steading.

I'm not entirely sold on the premises of this movement though despite offering some initial relief to scarcity of land. Maybe if they more thoroughly ironed out the pitfalls of human dwellings in general through simulated modalities, then a movement towards the ocean could be ideal.

o_O You've already planned so far ahead...

Haha thanks.

Good points, it wouldn't be total anarchy. Also people would have to pay to get there, so that would act as a filter as well. But anyway I just think the concept of inventing a nation on what was previously just open ocean, to be very exciting. Lots of possibilities! Imagine if it got up to being a city of hundreds of people... you could literally create real-estate where there previously was none. It could even become profitable if you could sell the "land" for more than it costs to build it. If it was profitable then it could grow very quickly.

To run with the idea to the full extent, imagine 300 years from now 5% of the oceans are covered in floating land... It sounds like a sci-fi novel, but it could potentially happen someday! I'd love to be in on the ground floor of an idea like that

Wouldn't it be cool if there was like a saidit island that was a real place you could move to, with its own laws

Probably not. I enjoy the conformist order of mainstream society so I can chaotically pull at the strings for the increased confusion and bewilderment of local citizenry and many surveillance operators. Pretty much what I do around this site sometimes lol.

But in real life if it was an outlaw paradise, I wouldn't have the counterbalance to keep me in check. As a vacation or a bug out place, absolutely! Who wouldn't want their own private island they can drive around the ocean to get away from the local autho... I mean bugs. Those darn bugs and mosquitoes. :XD

Yeah I think I'd need like $400k to get started though probably. I'd imagine just to get it going I'd need 2 ocean-worthy boats, and then enough of those plastic cubes to do like a quarter-acre of land. And then several more electric motors, and many solar panels and the electronics to run that. And then the mangrove trees, and gas to gather all the floating plastic and to bring everything out there. Sounds like about $400k minimum. Maybe I could talk to that french orange island artist guy and see if he'd fund me lol.

Totally doable and maybe even worth the challenge! You're going to need a team with some skills and expertise than going it alone though. You will be much faster by yourself, but a dedicated team can help you go further over time. Start by contacting some engineers/architects and develop a model of the product with its different components and simulate it against the forces involved. If your product is sound, create your own business model and you may just have a lucrative career as an island leasing ocean-lord pirate ahead of you!

It gives people access to two islands that have no real value. It's a liability in a storm unless you spent far more. It would be an eye sore if built properly. It would be mostly cement.

Nice find! Those are prime locations for ocean parking but if you are too close to land, you'd still need permissions from respective governments to stay and would probably have to pay taxes/fees since this project would be considered a glorified boat. Being isolated out in the ocean without contact to land for very long would be too messy; so this wouldn't be a cheaper project if it was to be done right.

However, there is a chance to build more of these islands and rent them out accordingly... the sky could be the limit on what you could get, and may solve your money woes :)$

Here's a map of every hurricane recorded: https://eoimages.gsfc.nasa.gov/images/imagerecords/7000/7079/tropical_cyclone_map_lrg.gif

So it seems there are large areas where you could avoid the hurricane problem altogether.

Then you want a place with small wave energy so there's not huge waves: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/World_wave_energy_resource_map.png

So you could overlay those maps and find a good spot where nature wouldn't mess with you too much. Seems maybe either side of South America?

And then if we were counteracting tides, we'd want a place with low speed current flow of water, so here's a world current map: https://media1.britannica.com/eb-media/91/53891-004-88DDD871.jpg

Looks like east of Brazil in the middle of the ocean might be a good spot, it's good on all 3 maps.

Rather than worrying about the cost though, you'd probably want your island to be built to last on the stormy seas!

Richart's first island was destroyed by a hurricane in the Caribbean because he didn't have any built-in navigation capabilities or he may not have been able to tow it out of danger quick enough with a boat. The new island Jyxee is better updated and expanding but, if you are going to spend as much time and effort into something; might as well build it with contingency plans and tactical features in mind to avoid the known dangers.

And I would assume, it wouldn't be very cheap due to the increasing number of those tactical features and regular maintenance of them. But the cost cutting aspect would really be in the logistics of bringing those features together gradually without skimping on the longevity of the project. You'd still need a secondary income of being an internet business starter or something for sure to keep your private island lol.

I like how he used mangrove trees to hold it together too, that's smart. The use of trash is cool too. But I wonder how much all those plastic netted bags cost that he used.

I wonder if you could combine his techniques with the plastic cubes island idea to achieve a bigger island for lower cost...

Yeah, as an experience. This was a creative project with no net negatives from a business standpoint and he has plans to keep doing something similar in other parts of the world. But one can't help and think that this could be a lot more functional and valuable on top of the art aspect of it. Altering the material for better resiliency, investing that $$ for research on better material and then having the longevity aspect to it could have brought more value all around. Still think he is a passionate nutter all this in for the short-term and art has very little to no limits in support of this sort of thing.

It says in the video he paid for it out of his own pocket. So I don't see anything wrong with it. I think it was taken apart because the materials are not resilient enough to last long-term.

I bet he just sold the blocks to someone else, and they threw the orange fabric away. I still think it was a cool exhibit, and the guy probably made money by the town paying him to bring tourism, or something like that.

What a nutter. This could at least have been a long term project for the public and adopted for emergency civic operations or something; but some reason it was deconstructed only half a month later! And cost upwards of up to $17million!

The project only lives on in the internet now according to this article since the materials have all been "recycled".

Can't help but think this was a sunk cost but who dares question the fringe ambitions of the art industry...

I'd throw Hacker News in there for startup / programming / tech news. Also tech aggregator Slashdot is nowhere near as big as it used to be, but still has some good discussions.

Right now my top alt social networks are Saidit, notabug, and Minds. The author was correct to criticize Gab and Voat's community, but should have lumped Raddle in there too.
