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

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.

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.
@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
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.

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

I have been working, in fits and starts, on a public domain and CC media repository.
The long term goal is, of course, a DIY netflix. A place to consume media that doesn't make money for the people who seek to control us.
In the short term, the has resulted in a massive (~2TB of source files and growing, not to mention all the derived files) of public domain movies and TV shows and metadata about same.

I survived yet another night out!
I left the house late, to join a friend who had been partying elsewhere. 50m from our meeting point, I get a text: he's gone to sleep.
I'll go dance the night away.
I dance, I meet the divorced clown. He's on acid. We dance, I meet the super nice blockchain enthusiast. He's drinking water.
We all dance, like a prayer.
It is good.
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 ).
- DYI isolation in the work
- Moar shelves inside and probably power box overhaul.
- Migrating some services there ?
it should be fun to self host stuff :)
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
