Interesting timing on this video.....

This weeks Landline is about 'destocking livestock" and infrastructure preparation in a drought......which is what i posted about in reference to the "buy a bale" campaign recently
Worth a watch.

Woman in the Wilderness

Just finished reading this book after seeing a BBC interview on Miriam Lancewood
- https://amzn.to/2LWisGB

Quick read, but interesting insights.

I hope there is a followup to come in another decade or two, ignore the wilderness part...its really a love story and a comment on choices we make in life.

Fleetwood Mac (the early stuff)

Been noticing lately that im constantly replaying over and over Fleetwood Mac's - Need Your Love So Bad - https://amzn.to/2Kvrk5l   (the 13 minute versions on The Pious Bird Of Good Omen album track 10).

Its like I hear a different intonation with every listen. Pure perfection

#DPSS18 - Dawn of Private Space Science Symposium

Just spent 2 very enjoyable days watching the livestream of the #DPSS18 conference.


http://www.privatespacescience.com/
The Dawn of Private Space Science Symposium is a platform to facilitate communication between the private space industry and scientists. The symposium brings together leading scientists, foundations, corporations, policy makers, and commercial spacelines under one roof to create opportunities for scientific research in space.


The stream is a bit rough eg you need to fastforward over the starts/breaks but the content/discussions are pretty good (it went for 2 days - so Saturday is video 1, Sunday is video 2)

EU questioning of Mark Zuckerberg

I'm @NowWatching the European questioning of Mark Zuckerberg.

Wondering what people are thinking about these claims by the EU on how Facebook is "just wrong" and people in Europe don’t want to use it apart from lol...apart from millions of people keep signing up and using it every day.

I keep thinking.....he doesn't get paid enough.

The smartass asking 6 questions without pausing for answers/or the questions to be written down with final part 6 saying Facebook should be broken up because he wants to see a European competitor.....

My response would be GAGF.

I've never been pro Facebook.....but these questions are a witch hunt.

No wonder Europe is in such a mess.

Eg the guy who was late to the start of the meeting because of the strikes in France but now asking for $198 compensation for every facebook users data.

Or the Irish politician wants Facebook to prevent fake accounts (idiot Irish kid who posted embarrasing sex photo and killed himself).....but the other EU politicians want to ban Facebook from building shadow accounts. (Which are used to prevent fake account generation).

This is why EU is screwed up they can't agree on what they want.

Lastly....just plain ugh, this questioning format is ridiculous but well done by Mark in not getting frustrated with their incompetence.
