Every Day A Post of WordPress Tips and Tricks until Christmas! - 0 views

  •  
    The time has come and our loyal reader know already our traditional Advents Calendar. For the people who don't know, every year we had in December each day, until the 24th (Christmas Eve in Germany), a post with specials, tips, tricks, plugins, tutorials and so on. Since it is quite a lot work to accomplish 24 high quality posts, we asked some of the finest WordPress Experts in Germany if they would like to contribute some ideas and great posts to it every day. http://wpengineer.com/2652/every-day-a-post-of-wordpress-tipps-and-tricks-until-christmas/

Possible U.N. telecommunications treaty? - 0 views

  •  
    (A little outdated, 2012) This is an interesting article about possible international telecommunication regulations; and how countries have been preparing for The World Conference on International Telecommunications for months "behind closed doors". Although the idea seems easy enough, I do not believe that all the involved nations could reach a single standard when it comes to rights of speech and censorship. Even more so, if a treaty was made how would this effect the laws and citizens of the individual countries who already have laws in place?

    Listserve is a website that writes about lists of things strange and yet fascinating at the same time. This list definetly falls under this idea, and despite the fact that this article was originally published in 2011, most of the articles in this list are still up and running on wikipedia.
