I’ll be talking about Data ethics and data driven architecture tonight in @De_Zwijger

Really nice Tom Scott video that answers the question: "What if copyright advocates are the first to create a general purpose AI?"

Scarily plausible...

I'm not a big fan of fantasy novels but I'd definitely read one about the cartographers and surveyors who have to go around and make the map you see in the front of the book. I know this novel is out there--what is it?

@leonardr If it exists, it's title OUGHT to be "Here Be Dragons".

Anyone interested in a mastodon instance focused on India? I have seen that many Indian users on Twitter have to go through vicious trolling.

The philosophy is to have a hate-speech free version of Twitter for Indians, free of fake news and IT Cells. We'll have bots to follow Modi, Gandhi, Kejriwal, etc. and some news websites. The servers could be crowdfunded.

Boost to show support, comment to discuss.

america needs to arm these moderate rebels in france. It's clear the macron regime no longer represents the French people!

1000en christenfundi's marcheren nu door Den Haag tegen het zelfbeschikking van vrouwen. Ook veel jonge vrouwen doen mee aan de #MarsvoorhetLeven. 3 feminsten werden ingesloten door politie en moesten hun ID tonen, anders zou arrestatie volgen #BaasInEigenBuik

Ze werden door de politie naar een plek voor de Bijenkorf verwezen. Daar trekken ze nu met z'n 20en meert bekijks dan de 1000en fundi's.

Eerder waren actievoersters al op het podium geklommen met actieborden. 2 van hen zijn gearresteerd.

How did Who Framed Roger Rabbit get made? I'm glad it did, but it's so weird and horny and weirdly horny and it came out in 1988.

@srol Also, it's a movie about an exploited and ghettoised minority against whom violence "doesn't count"

While you've never heard it said that way, you know that "toon" is being used as a slur

It's amazing

A successful Dutch model of ad-free journalism is trying to raise funds to launch an international version. They're 2/3 of the way there with 5 days to go.

Please read their 10 principles and decide for yourself if this is the type of journalism worth supporting.

I can guarantee that Mastodon users will like what they see if they click on this link: thecorrespondent.com/

I would be thrilled to see them reach their goal (if not, we get our money back). They've won me over years ago.

One of the absolute hardest parts of learning how to code for me is thinking of projects I can do to get some practice, especially while I'm still at a pretty basic level.

the other day I came home to find my robot vacuum to be missing from its little charging cradle. I looked around and found the bathroom door to be closed. I opened it and was greeted with this.

Yes, it is wedged between the toilet and the counter. And yes, that is a sock on its main navigational camera. I have no idea how it got there.

Solar powered micro datacenter in the work: the autonomous Datashedter ( need a better name, or sleep a bit more before naming things ... )

- 400W solar panels on top and a bunch of batteries for up to 4 days operations in the dark.
- Fiber uplink to main building.
- Wifi backup Uplink.
- the 3 Ham antennas in the picture are used for emergencies at crazy distances in case of all down in a 150-1000miles radius ( 1k miles is very very low bandwidth ofc ).

Next:
- DYI isolation in the work
- Moar shelves inside and probably power box overhaul.
- Testing/testing/testing.
- Migrating some services there ?

it should be fun to self host stuff :)
