The high price of machine #ventilators forces many hospitals in the poorest regions of the world to rely on a simple solution known as an Ambu Bag that requires constant manual pressure in order to get oxygen to the lungs.
At the time of writing, 10 patients are accompanied in breathing by a machine that uses a #3Dprinted valve. As the #coronavirus spread worldwide and breaks supply chains, 3D printers – through people’s ingenuity and design abilities – can lend a hand.
Hospitals may have a right to produce these parts in an emergency (as in this case) but, in order to legally obtain a 3D printable STL file, the hospital that requires the parts needs to present an official request.
#COVIDー19 is the 1st outbreak in which a germ’s evolution and spread have been tracked in so much detail, and almost in real time.
First thing you should know that #mastodon is a decentralized social media platform.
A decentralized network, which means there is no central group with all of the power.
So here it is #fediverse
Jesus Christ. "By ... next March, it will have passed the personal data of 50 million or more patients in 21 states to Google, with 10 million or so files already having moved across – with no warning having been given to patients or doctors." https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/nov/12/google-medical-data-project-nightingale-secret-transfer-us-health-information

Did you know your smartphone may be harvesting your data all day long, capturing with great detail where you are, who you are and what you’re doing 24/7?

"What is in the #publicdomain in analogue form is [not always] in the public domain in digital form"
"..any material resulting from an act of reproduction of [a public domain] work is not subject to copyright or related rights, unless the material resulting from that act of reproduction is original in the sense that it is the author’s own intellectual creation."
"O que é de #domíniopúblico na forma analógica nem sempre está no domínio público sob a forma digital"
Para mudar este cenário, o Artigo 14 da nova Diretiva de Copyright da UE esclarece que "qualquer resultante de ato de reprodução de obra [em #domíniopúblico] não estará sujeito a direitos autorais ou direitos conexos."
"Morehshin Allahyari has been capturing the imagination of #art lovers the world over since her Material Speculation: #ISIS series from 2015-16 propelled her into the spotlight. For that project, she recreated objects destroyed by the ISIS terrorist organization in Iraq.
#3Dprinting them in a beautiful translucent material that revealed a USB — filled with the related data — buried deep inside the new works."

"A arquitetura informacional de #Floridi para conteúdo semântico trata de maneira criativa a informação ‘ficcional’—maioria dos conteúdos de #patrimôniocultural. São #NíveisdeAbstração(NdA) para cada tema, contexto e local, evitando assim o #relativismo.
Os #NdA de Floridi constituem uma abordagem #arquitetônica para todo tipo de conteúdo, e uma #ética arquitetônica destinada aos criadores, designers e usuários da #infosfera: práticas normativas no aspecto #semântico, e não no #epistemológico."
"#GLAM e Instituições de #Memória em Rede: Uma #Infosfera de #Floridi?"
"A #interoperabilidade de #arquivos, #bibliotecas e #museus é pautada pela possibilidade de integração dos conteúdos via web, o que propicia inovação no acesso das informações de patrimônio cultural pela sociedade.
..são profissionais de bibliotecas, arquivos e museus que operam a manutenção da interligação de suas coleções locais com os demais acervos em rede--os 'cuidadores’ do #ambientesemântico."
A Line in the Sand
"On one side is work toward proving #freepeople are worth more than captive ones. On the other side is work toward making life easier for people who remain captive in existing systems.
At a deeper level, what we've been trying to do all along—just by working on #Linux—is prove that free people are worth more than captive ones, both to themselves and to everyone and everything else. In #Matrix terms, we want to make each of us a #Neo."
“All these groups from the nation’s economic and educational elite, with money to afford the professional opinion of the best political analysts, let themselves be deluded much more than the average citizen about what we #Bolsonaro’s election really represented,”
"When we teach through #modelling behaviour, the learner is in control, whereas teaching by #shaping behaviour means the teacher is in control. In Western society, shaping has been the dominant mode for a very long time.. In our digitally #networked world, modelling how to learn is a better strategy than shaping on a predefined curriculum."
