Mein neues Hobby:

In jedem Artikel darüber, dass Polizei/Justiz/Politik gegen $Messengerdienst vorgehen, den Namen des Dienstes durch das Wort "Atemluft" ersetzen.

Beispiel:
Justizministerium geht gegen Atemluft vor

Über Atemluft kommunizieren auch Kriminelle und Rechtsextreme.

Über das weithin verfügbare Medium Atemluft konnten sich bislang Kriminelle und Rechtsextreme ungestört austauschen. Laut Jugendschutz.net ist es eine „Verschwörungsschleuder“

"Keiner mag Klugscheißer!"

"Schöner wäre: keiner mag Klugscheißende"

Guten morgen.

Gestern lernte ich in einem Vortrag aus Stuttgart ein neues Wort: Akzeptanzmähen. Das ist, wenn man einen Meter um eine Wiese mit Pflanzen für Insekten mäht, damit die Nachbarn sehen, dass 1. der Rasenmäher nicht kaputt ist und 2. man ja schon was macht. 🌼💮🌻

The tools are build on-top of StrokeCoder, my Transformer NN that generates deviant sketches from one template image (arxiv.org/abs/2003.11958)

@neauoire @eris a different sort of model around like, community introspection that i really like is the rules that recurse center has: recurse.com/social-rules

it definitely serves a different purpose than the rules outlined in the OP, and maybe is better suited to a physical space, but i liked it for a general sense of like "before you say something - what are your motives? are they hurtful?" with a built-in concept of healing after mistakes

When asked about fears of automation in 1969, Arthur C. Clarke famously said that we shouldn't worry about automation: "the goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play." I have never seen his answer quoted in full.

Fairness Reconsidered: Receiving Audience as a Commons

The conceit of the Fairness Doctrine was that broadcast spectrum was a commons, and a limited public resource, arbitrarily allocated to a given (usually private) party. The right came with the obligation to manage this common resource in the public interest....

[What if we hold that] that public mindshare is itself a commons, and should be held and managed in the public interest. There’s a point at which reach or penetration themselves become exploitation of a public resource, and concern over the impacts of such reach are legitimate public concerns.

In information theory, a Sender transmits through a Channel to a Reciver. Fairness Doctrine was concerned with the receiver, but justified on the basis of the channel. I'm arguing that receiver itself is a valid justification.

An idea I'm kicking around. As with other recent posts, much of the meat is in comments, though the main article does cover much of the basics in this case.

After a week of work, I've managed to build the assembler, the terminal emulator, and now I've started building the PPU.

This is the first time UxnVM is able to draws pixels to the screen. Next is dev/mouse and dev/key
