Instagram Just Threw Users of Its Embedding API Under the Bus

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Instagram does not provide users of its embedding API a copyright license to display embedded images on other websites, the company said in a Thursday email to Ars Technica. The announcement could come as an unwelcome surprise to users who believed that embedding images, rather than hosting them directly, provides insulation against copyright claims. "While our terms allow us to grant a sub-license, we do not grant one for our embeds API," a...

Leading Thoughts for June 4, 2020

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. Consultant Robert J. Thomas on learning to think like a leader: “If you desire to be a leader, you have to think like one. At the heart of that process is a form of deliberate practice that would look familiar to students and teachers of music, chess, or any of a number of complex, highly intentional pursuits—most emphatically in terms of approaches ...

Further On

On another walk (we are meeting twice a week) we went further down the Seine than before. I don’t know if we will be doing this next week as it is predicted that there will be rain. In any case, when the sun is shining, it’s a beautiful walk. I like that you can see three bridges in this shot. I was surprised to see rocks in the water here too. A mother duck showing her young ones the ropes. A boat that was once a restaurant on the water. I hope it opens again. Places are sup...

Kids now spend nearly as much time watching TikTok as YouTube in US, UK and Spain

A new study on kids’ app usage and habits indicates a major threat to YouTube’s dominance, as kids now split their time between Google’s online video platform and other apps, like TikTok, Netflix and mobile games like Roblox. Kids ages four to 15 now spend an average of 85 minutes per day watching YouTube videos, compared with 80 minutes per day spent on TikTok. The latter app also drove growth in kids’ social app use by 100% in 2019 and 200% in 2020, the report found. The data in the annual rep...

Love Trumps Hate.

We went down to State Street to see the aftermath of the protests... Meade wore his Peace gear... [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Down on State Street here in Madison, every ground floor window is covered in plywood, and there's an effort to turn it into something good by painting murals.

A small procession... "Silence is complicity"... "Silence is violence"... That's at the art museum, but the award for the best painting goes to... Walking with coffee... Controlling the narrative... The iconic Triangle Market... And the beloved Paul's Books... Nonsense... this was on the credit union... "Inclusion" — It's Sugar.... "UNITY"... Imagine not leaving Ragstock alone! Background: "For three nights, business[es] on and around State Street in Downtown Madison have been sittin...

Recently, CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook's decision to allow a Tump post that Twitter hid with a disclaimer for "glorifying violence." Employees have protested in unprecedented numbers, and some have quit. If you care about quelling the spread of misinformation...
