Watch someone play GoldenEye with a piano as a controller
Few third-party Nintendo 64 titles have managed to maintain as fond memories as Goldeneye 007, a title that was many a 90s kid’s first FPS game. It also had some really catchy tunes. Now an enterprising YouTuber Jackson Parodi has combined music and gameplay by controlling Goldeneye with his digital piano. The concept is pretty simple. Parodi simply maps different piano keys to buttons on the N64 remote. Considering the N64 only had one analog stick and Goldeneye made you aim with four C-buttons or the D-Pad anyway, it’s not as inconvenient a setup as it might seem. You can… This story continues at The Next Web

Indian government ban on ‘non-sovereign’ cryptocurrency would see holders jailed for up to 10 years
A government panel in India has issued a recommendation to ban all “cryptocurrencies created by non-sovereigns,” a step which could be applied to Bitcoin. “The Committee notes with serious concern mushrooming of cryptocurrencies almost invariably issued abroad and numerous people in India investing in these cryptocurrencies. All these cryptocurrencies have been created by non-sovereigns and are in this sense entirely private enterprises,” their report reads. The panel said anyone dealing with digital currencies of any kind could face 10 years behind bars and be handed hefty fines. As part of its recommendation, the panel laid out the reasons why cryptocurrencies… This story continues at The Next Web

Five reasons future space travel should explore asteroids
On the same day that the Earth survived an expected near-miss with asteroid 367943 Duende, Russian dashcams unexpectedly captured footage of a different asteroid as it slammed into the atmosphere, exploded, and injured more than 1,000 people. That day in Chelyabinsk in February 2013 reminded the world that the Earth does not exist in a bubble. Asteroids provide a direct connection between the Earth and interplanetary space. Craters such as the Barringer Crater in Arizona are a stark reminder. The dinosaurs died out due to a different impact not far away in the Gulf of Mexico. But elsewhere in the… This story continues at The Next Web

UK MP on Libra: Facebook’s almost trying to turn itself into its own country
Facebook‘s ‘cryptocurrency‘ Libra is ruffling feathers among UK politicians amid concerns that the technology giant’s entry into the world of finance would give it too much power. Similarly to their US counterparts, which questioned Facebook‘s blockchain leader David Marcus over two days last week, UK politicians are keen to get a better understanding about Facebook‘s ability to protect users‘ financial data following a string of scandals. “To me, [Libra] suggests that Facebook’s almost trying to turn itself into its own country,” Damian Collins, chair of the House of Common’s Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee told Financial News.

An introvert’s guide to professional networking
As a community manager, my daily tasks involve many social interactions with our freelance editors, such as onboarding new community members and bringing the community together for social events. I’ve used the word ‘community’ three times in one sentence describing my job – so you might be surprised to hear that I call myself an introvert.  Contrary to the perception many have, being an introvert doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy social interactions or that I’m shy, but that social interactions and new environments take more energy from me than from an extrovert. This means I usually find myself very… This story continues at The Next Web

This new podcast tells the stories of sexual assault survivors overcoming their trauma
For the ongoing series, Code Word, we’re exploring if — and how — technology can protect individuals against sexual assault and harassment, and how it can help and support survivors. This story explores how the podcast, After: Surviving sexual assault, gives survivors a voice to speak out about their experience with sexual trauma. While it seems like survivors of sexual violence are more accepted and supported than ever, the conversations around trauma are still highly stigmatized, and too often focused on the accused rather than the survivors. But Catriona Morton, a writer and sexual assault survivor, wants to further destigmatize… This story continues at The Next Web

Who’s responsible for domestic abuse witnessed by online tutors?
In a piece co-published by Wired and EdSurge last week, Emily Tate detailed a troubling facet of the burgeoning online video teaching industry. According to US-based English tutors she spoke with, some of their young students in China were being beaten and scolded by their parents for making mistakes during these lessons – on camera. Hundreds of thousands of children in China currently use online tutoring services to learn English, from platforms like QKids, Magic Ears, DaDa, Gogokid, and VIPKid (which has raised more than $800 million in funding since it was founded in 2014). Tate noted that of the two dozen… This story continues at The Next Web

Anonymous chat apps fuels both free speech and cyberbullying
When the anonymous social media app YOLO was launched in May 2019, it topped the iTunes downloads chart after just one week, despite the lack of a major marketing campaign. Designed to be used with social network Snapchat, YOLO lets users invite people to send them anonymous messages. Its viral popularity followed that of other apps, such as the now infamously defunct Yik Yak as well as Whisper, Secret, Spout, Swiflie, and Sarahah. All these cater to a desire for anonymous interaction online. The explosive popularity of YOLO has led to warnings of the same problem that led to Yik… This story continues at The Next Web

Animals and plants help engineers light up cities, detect explosives, and predict natural disastors
For decades, humans have modeled technology on observations of the natural world. But new discoveries about nature—and tools for manipulating it—have opened up novel approaches potentially more powerful than mere imitation to solving Human Age problems. Spinach that can detect explosives Engineers have discovered how to transform spinach plants into environmental sensors that can alert us to the presence of explosives. The development is one in the nascent field of “cyborg botany,” a merging of nature and technology that draws upon plants’ remarkable sensory capabilities in order to drive robots, provide environmental data, and more.
