The Virtual Revolution refers to the fact that 20-25% of the word’s
population is using the web by now, while other 80% are yet either not connected to broadband connections or are just not using it, as Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the web, states. In Afrika for example, people are now getting connected to broadband internet in a wide variety of areas. This means that the digital revolution that has shaped our world as we know it now, will happen in these areas too.
The BBC has started a series called “
The Virtual Revolution – How 20 years of the web has reshaped our lives“. The following video represents a great intro to this series:

a six-minute interview on stage with TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg states that if he’d start facebook again all privacy settings by DEFAULT would be PUBLIC. A very interesting approach which leads to the question if people want if all of their data is available publicly? I personally do not.
Here is the interview of Zuckerberg:
While trying to upgrade my
WordPress installation from version 2.9 to version 2.9.1 I always got the following error:
Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.9.1.zip.
Download failed.: Operation timed out with 1201840 out of -1 bytes received
After doing some research using
Google I found a solution to that problem:
You just need to edit the following file in order to increase the download timeout:
Near line 461 of file.php change the timeout value from:
$response = wp_remote_get($url, array('timeout' => 60));
to the new value of 120:
$response = wp_remote_get($url, array('timeout' => 120));
Then try again to upgrade your wordpress installation using the automatic upgrade and it should work properly now. Mine did and I am happy again! 🙂
Cheers and have fun, and leave me a comment if this post was useful for you!
