Data Porn

The meaning of the word is knowledge that is transmitted and produced in order to reach a conclusion, an investigation, a reasoning. The data are used actively in every field in daily life. For example, the information you enter when you register to a website is written to the site database.

Then the content of the site is created using this information. Every function you perform is written to the database using your own information. When you upload a photo, the information of the photo is written in the database with your profile number and used to show this information again. When this kind of information is accumulated, a data stack is formed about you in the database and this information is stored for later use.

Using this information, similar content can be displayed on your site as well as on previously purchased ads. When you click on the ads, the information that was clicked using your profile number again generates another piece of data. In this way, it is possible to display the contents of the ads that are most suitable for you.

This loop continues to repeat as long as you remain in the site, and large databases are created. General statistics are available in these databases. Larger masses are always used to generate larger content sets. In this way, the movement and circulation that you do each year is stored for hundreds of years. In any case, this information is used over and over again. The infinite loop created by storing the information in this way can be used by malicious people as well as good content for malicious purposes as it is divided into large data groups over time.

Wrong Side

After a long holiday, I went back to the internet world again. When I was hanging out with my relatives, I noticed that I was on the wrong side. “Relatives are scorpions.” I think they need to believe it. I’ve spent a week witnessing that people who run when jobs are down do not exist when their jobs are over.

Nobody answers my messages, nobody wants to face me. Maybe it’s not working. Nobody knows that. I spent a week in solitude as always. I even learned about what opportunities are taking place around me. Even if I’ve been guiding you for a while now, it’s starting to change the way you do not hang out with me right now. I am aware of all the rumors about me. The relative was a false choice for me. It was an indispensable experience for me now that I experienced the same thing last time.

It was a waste of time for me to spend a week with relatives. I wish I did not have a vacation instead. At least I would have been a little bit more concerned about the people who slaughtered me for their own interests. Even if you are with someone in your life, it shows that people are reminded many times that they are alone and they are not making me out if they are constantly making plans to finish you.

My vacation is over and I finally returned to the virtual life. As I continue to improve myself and my life, I think that I will continue as a loner with someone after that. I hope that what I make of them comes to them and I wish you all a good day.

Space age and old generation problematic

While technology and other tools are developing on the world for years, we will meet with the old generation who insists on changing the technology in the old days and the space age. This problematic situation is about not renewing itself or renewing itself. Older technology and old brains do not get tired of defending an old technology all the time.

Day after day, old techs have to leave their place with new generation technologies. For most of us, this transition does not become compulsive. A new generation of fast-paced generation is trying to catch up and do better, while the old generation insists on not changing. The elderly are making every effort to add more to the ancestor rather than leaving it to the edge. This sometimes leads to new things to do. Most of the time, he is struggling to prevent any new construction, such as a security wall, ahead of the old one. To solve this problem, the new ones often leave the old ones and create a new order.

Project From Hell

A few years ago, I was hired to work as a consultant on a software project for a large French tech company. What I have witnessed there is beyond everything I could possibly have imagined in terms of software engineering. Far more serious than just a lack of professional competence was the utmost contempt for human dignity which at some point made me compare the whole experience to (what I imagine can be) jail. What I relate here is a selected list of topics that should illustrate my point, but check out by yourself.

Scope

Develop a piece of software for a government agency. Low complexity, with a few twists.

Government pays a few million Euros upfront, development is scheduled for two to three years. Company hires a couple of developers to start the job, and keeps doubling team size every 3 months or so as cash starts flowing in.

7 years later, the project is still not in any decent shape. Penalties are running in several thousand Euros per day. Management decides to reduce costs and fires all experimented people, hires people with little or no software experience.

10 years later, given the disastrous state of the project, middle-management decides to hire some people with software engineering experience to get back on tracks. Average turn-over for the newcomers: 3 months, the legal time to leave your job in France.

12 years later, the project is still active. The company recovers daily penalties by billing ever-increasing change requests to the government. The year is 2008.
