Valuable News – 2021/07/12

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to
provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but
not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon
something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams
is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important
without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday.
Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already
do that grep(1).
