Why you should save peoples real names in your phone book It is no secret that Whats-App (and a lot of other Apps) collect their users phone books. Of course this data is analyzed, but we want to defend our-selfs, especially if we did not agree to give away our data to those companies. Many people therefore ask their friend not to safe their real name together with their phone number.
SteelCrypt: Spritz in Ada Now my project, SteelCrypt, to craft a new crypto-library in Ada begins. I just finished the first algorithm-core which happens to be Spritz. It was surprisingly that it worked on the first try. I am not really sure if this is more due to the simplicity of Spritz or the virtues of Ada. The long-term aim is to have an TLS-library written completely in Ada. For me this is a natural approach since a lot of the late trouble which occurred with OpenSSL and GnuTLS are not only cause by lazy programmers but also by the language, in this case C, which is inherently lacking security and safety features.
THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS … Thoughts About EBooks EBooks are coming It seems that the future of the book is electronic. A lot of money and development goes into a new market for electronic books and some might say that paper based books might be extinguished. Some people want to stick to paper based books and do not like the new trends of implementing Digitla Restriction Managment (DRM) Systems into this new books.
THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS … A Mathematical Approach Towards Gender Short (;tldr) This is about the idea to capture our apparent perception of gender in more mathematical definitions. The idea is that gender does not exist if you only look at one individual, but comes into existence if you consider a statistically relevant group. We want to look at gender as a multidimensional space where each aspect of gender is a dimension which covers a range from $-1$ to $1$.
