"On 10 April, astrophysicists announced that they had captured the 1st ever image of a #blackhole.
Just 5 days later, the NSF rejected a grant to support that ecosystem, saying that the software lacked sufficient impact.

It's 12:49 AM in my timezone right now. I decided to finally learn swift. Why? Well, I'd say @slice is to blame (but in a positive way). It's been on my list for ages now, but after looking at a project he's been working on, I was amazed at how nice mac app dev seems to be with swift.
@rnickson IMO any company that shuts down their DRM servers should be legally required to distribute the keys and/or a tool to remove their own DRM

@RumPartov what are your plans for the future of your party
Long time no toots. Here's what happened in the meanwhile, in chronological order:
1. I finished exams. Finally.
2. I went on senior trip with all of my class, and it was amazing.
3. I graduated the past Saturday. In fucking Confucius Temple in Beijing.
Yes, that's pretty much it. I'm fucking done with school, on to university. I'm incredibly happy about finally being done.
I can’t believe what I’m seeing! While running a facial recognition pilot, one man (understandably imho) covered himself up. The police forced him to show his face (& then fined him for disorderly conduct). This is dangerous & terrifying.
I'm Gerd, a 17 yo student who like to program, fiddle around with weird machines and do other fun stuff with computers. enby, he/him
