You can find this engraved sign in the Shreve Jewelry Store elevator in San Francisco.

I asked the staff about it. They said that fixing the light would require replacing the entire panel. But that would trigger a building-code upgrade for the whole elevator system. Total cost? $80,000.

Cost of sign? $3

Finally! a way to re-platform your Google+ data before the April 2019 shutdown.

gplus-exporter.friendsplus.me/ exports to Wordpress, Blogger and other places. Hoping that this allows for communities to transition to new hosting or for individuals to go

I started selfhosting my Known instance at 1500wordmtu.com

The somewhat Darwinian competition mentality among the tech giants is backfiring. Facebook reacted to it's scandals by publishing articles critical of other tech companies. This will backfire as people will turn against all tech giants, laying the ground for alternatives like the movement.

I hope that your ISP isn't blocking sci-hub..
