Hi, I’m Richard. I’ve been around the Internet for a while. I work for Cisco now, and used to lead security for Firefox. I was a co-founder of Let’s Encrypt and I currently serve on its board. I care about the Internet, and I care about nonprofits.
I joined the board’s unanimous decision to, sell the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the registry for the .org top-level domain, to Ethos Capital. Since this transaction has gotten some attention, I’d like to speak a little about why, in my estimation, this deal is a good one for the Internet. It basically comes down to two things: 1. The Internet Society does great work protecting the Internet and bringing it to the people who need it most — work that is way more impactful than leasing domain names. This transaction secures that work’s future and independence. 2. Ethos is a worthy successor to the Internet Society as the steward of .org.
There’s no doubt that .org has a big impact on the online brand and identity of nonprofits. But the impact of the Internet Society is much broader than that. For those who might be unfamiliar with the Internet Society, our mission is as follows: 1. The Internet Society supports and promotes the development of the Internet as a global technical infrastructure, a resource to enrich people’s lives, and a force for good in society. 2. Our work aligns with our goals for the Internet to be open, globally-connected, secure, and trustworthy.
China’s HL-2M nuclear fusion device burns with the power of 13 suns.
Chinese scientists have developed “artificial sun,” a nuclear fusion research device that is supposed to pave the way for clean energy — similar to the real Sun.
The completion of the reactor was announced on Tuesday, and it’s expected to start operation in 2020. The fusion process in the Sun relies on forcing atoms to merge, which releases heat that can be transformed into energy.
The result is energy that is cleaner and cheaper than current nuclear options, resulting in less toxic waste, according to scientists.

If higher education is mostly about signaling, you can make the world a better place by making it happen faster.
“..the real value of education, for the people who get it, is signaling, not skills — memorably, he argues that a college is not so much a sculptor as an appraiser.”
If you were reinventing the Ivy League as a signaling-focused product, your stripped-down version might look like this: you invite a small cohort of talented people to move to a city for about three months, you host some social events so they get to know each other, you have them work on projects and you advise them on those, and afterwards you introduce them to a bunch of savvy rich people.
In other words, you’d invent Y Combinator.
Trevor Jackson, a UK-based ex-naval officer and now an inventor, claims to have invented a new aluminium-air battery (different from the standard lithium-ion battery) which he says has a 2400 km range on a single charge. As you can imagine, this is a massive jump from the 300 km range as promised in many expensive top-tier electric cars with li-ion batteries. And aluminium happens to be one of the most abundantly available elements on the planet. The inventor says that it weighs lesser and occupies lesser space as compared to li-ion batteries and is also non-hazardous and recyclable. Sound too good to be true? We’ll keep following this story as it develops.

“Basically, it works through the income route, so there were two factors that seem to have impacted the dip in Bank’s exposure to consumer durables post-demonetisation — one is that the MSMEs had serious problems in terms of cash crunch, employees’ departure which eventually led to their shutdown, and second is inventory pile-up, as people did not have cash to buy, along with increased unemployment and loss of income in the same year,” said Govind Rao, member, 14th Finance Commission.

Tesla’s in-house chip is 21 times faster than the older Nvidia model Tesla used. And each car’s computer has two for safety.
There’s redundancy in the chips’ power supplies and data input feeds, too. Even the car’s cameras are on two separate power supplies to guard against failures.
Each chip makes its own assessment of what the car should do next. The computer compares the two assessments, and if the chips agree, the car takes the action. If the chips disagree, the car just throws away that frame of video data and tries again,
Amazon reported AWS Q2 revenue at $8.4B, a gain of $2.3B or 37%.
To put that into proper perspective, AWS’s quarterly gain was likely larger than the entire 2018 annual IaaS sales from Google, IBM, and Tencent cloud combined. Compared to Azure IaaS, based on my rough estimates, AWS revenue growth in dollars was likely 2-3X larger.
