Good morning to you all! Rain is still poring down, tired of getting wet each time I go outside. heh.
Going to rain all weekend it seems, but then next week it’ll get better. Hoped the rain would stop this weekend, but it seems like it wont.
@email@example.com There is no such thing as “announcing” in Twtxt. The fact you show up at all on my pod is just an artifact of someone on my pod following your feed 😆
@firstname.lastname@example.org Gorcha 👌
@email@example.com What’s this?! 🤔
I’m compiling Minetest right now; feels like my kids shouldn’t know. :D
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah, they are. I’m running Pleroma at social.nfld.uk, for example.
Good Morning!!! 👋
@email@example.com Sorry for the late reply. 🤦♂️
Are those using Activity Pub?
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh I see 😆
@email@example.com Very cool! 👌 What’s YILK?
Another month, another pixelart! This time it’s actually not a canine, but a strange scenery, made using the PICO 8 color palette.
The only thing shared between this and the last art, is both being “slightly YIIK inspired”.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I guess I got a bit bored halfway through as I already know many of the concepts already, and yet I still don’t desire to write in Lisp, ML, Haskell, Clojure, or Scale 😅
@email@example.com Hi 👋 For some reason I wasn’t following you, did you move your feed or something? 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Interesting. And I agree with:
We, therefore, propose a solution that will lead to more security while safeguarding the Free Software ecosystem:
Liability should be shifted to those deploying Free Software instead of those developing Free Software and
Those who significantly financially benefit from this deployment should make sure the software becomes > CE-compliant
@email@example.com I really liked it. One or the other section might feel a bit dated, because it is. But that doesn’t hurt the overall experience at all. Currently, I’m continuing with the next one: https://www.defmacro.org/2006/06/19/fp.html So far I can recomment this one, too. Both are written in an entertaining style and I feel like I have a little bit better understanding of things than before. But some mental power is required to wrap my head around some sections I’ve noticed. It’s no mind candy. :-) But that’s good. I never worked with any real functional language before. All my FP experience is limited what other languages offer in that field.
Let me know how you go reading this 😆 I tried 🤣
@firstname.lastname@example.org wait, are you live in Australia?
@email@example.com No push back here. we over complicate things needlessly 🤦♂️
In other news, if someone is willing to chat with me (in a higher bandwidth medium) regarding the best way to approach upgrading broadband access in a large apartment building, I‘d be thrilled to take you up on it.
The peculiar Australian laws allow providers to sweep in unannounced and change everything, without residents having a say in the company that does it. But we can set requirements they must meet, and that’s where I could some help. Or a paid consultant.
One of those where nearly everything I tried to do on a computer upset me, mostly by refusing to make it possible to use the concept of a "file" any more.
Binding file types to individual programs, even companies, is a scourge.
FFS there is now a "Files" APP, because we needed an app for files I guess? Because other apps can‘t use files?
And then there is the state of the web.
This industry is broadly embarrassing when it’s not just plain awful.
Feel free to push back, but right now: ugh.
@firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com G’day, overcast with tiny amounts of rain every now and then here, too. A grey heron visited a neighbor:
Today, I’ll finally have a look at Lisp. This nice introduction article waited in my browser tabs for many years I believe.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Good Efening! 👋 Overcast weather here 😆
Good morning! Yet another rainy day in South Norway..
@email@example.com I remember talking about it, but I can’t find a link to a tool in my bookmarks or my twtxt feeds. Sorry, man. Look up “vanity QR codes”.
@firstname.lastname@example.org It’s bound to happen (if not already) 🤦♂️
@email@example.com I figured you meant him, but it’s true of me too. :) Roger that, re the rest.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh I was talking about @email@example.com 😆 No further progress on the AP integration so far, probably end up redoing the work as a separate bridge 🤔 But there are real problems and real concerns 😢
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hehe. I certainly do: I’ve been talkin’ up the ActivityPub integration on the Keyoxide forum and the Fediverse, only to return and find the family in crisis over it. D: Still not sure what the latest is, or which side I’m on.
Thanks! I will 👌
That’s what microBlogging is for 👌
@abucci Could not agree more 💯 You should not be using AI generated text as your own in any works 🤦♂️
Maybe you need to come back to your Yarn family 😈
@email@example.com Nice! 👌
@firstname.lastname@example.org Nice! Keyoxide?
@email@example.com I think it’s normal to go through phases with this sort of thing. (Or maybe I’m projecting.) But, yeah, if you aren’t developing some sort of relationships with peers on a platform, I’d say what you’re talking about is inevitable.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Ha ha. That is an understatement. Still, super cool!
If I had more free time right now I’d write another blog post about this. For now, I just wanted to register how infuriating, tiring, and lousy this firehose of AI this/AI that is.
A lot of people in the US don’t seem to know that cars were crammed down our collective throats in much the same way, over enormous protests. Cars killed tons of people, and building roads destroyed communities on a massive scale. Huge numbers of people protested all of this and more, but cars were rammed through as something we just had to bear anyway.
Many people, including me, have raised alarm bells about this AI technology, and yet here we are having it rammed through in much the same way. It’s a pattern in the United States for sure, if not in the Western world generally. The powers that be don’t seem inclined to slow this process down or regulate it in anyway. I suspect they won’t start until the harms it can cause and are already causing become so great they can’t be ignored anymore.
I posted this on LinkedIn:
ACM, Association for Computing Machinery recently circulated a survey about their authorship policies. I strongly agree with their stance that AI text generators should not be listed as authors. I strongly disagree with their stance that research articles could contain generated text if it is disclosed and meets some other reasonable critiera. I believe the inclusion of such text in research articles fundamentally reduces their quality relative to texts authored entirely by human beings. I also believe, given how AI text generators are trained, that their use is a form of plagiarism. I very much hope the ACM reverses course on that particular aspect of their policy.
@email@example.com first time I’ve seen someone mention gnu taler. Been following it since it was announced:) never used for anything other then testing though.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Check out GNU Taler. It meets at least some of those goals :)
@email@example.com Mozilla receives a significant fraction of its funding from Google. There’s no way in hell they are making “trustworthy” AI.
