Pinned toot

Awesome, there's a tool that let's you "cloak" your face in images to make it useless for AI face detection without changing how it looks to humans!

I had this idea for ages but had no time to build it. Excited to see that it's possible :) For now, at least. Surely counter-strategies will emerge.

Sometimes, our choices may feel limited - that we are trapped behind walls of privacy-destroying technologies.

But we just need to be willing to search for, support and share better alternatives. We may be somewhat inconvenienced or disconnected from our personal network for a bit, but is it not worth it?

We think it is.

#BetterPrivacy
#SmallerTech
#OurChoicesOurFuture
#Privacy
#OpenSource

Use alternatives to:

Why does a mirror invert left/right, but not up/down? What's your best answer?

Polizeigewalt bei Demo in Ingelheim 

>Bei einer in Ingelheim scheint die Polizei Hunderte Menschen in Lebensgefahr gebracht zu haben. ZeugInnen berichten von massiver Gewalt.

Zeug:innen schildern mehrfache Schläge auf Bewusstlose & Fixierte, und das Umtreten einer Person im Rollstuhl. Richard G. sagt, er sei wegen einer Verletzung zwei Tage arbeitsunfähig geschrieben.

Rheinland-Pfalz: Dienstnummern seien abgenommen oder verdeckt worden [...]<

Strange how most of what we see of others is dead. Until someone starts bleeding and their living cells escape the cage of dead cells that imprisons them. I'd like to imagine the blood cells happy for just one moment about breaking free of the chains, just before they realize that whatever they could possibly achieve on their own is nowhere as meaningful as helping me stay alive and write this stupid toot.

Due to distortions in the map projection, few people realize how big iceland actually is. ;)

When I got hungry in the game, it told me that I "caught the disease of mild starvation." Interesting!

I got my hands on the German version of Nev Vegas and thought, why not try it. Might spice things up.

Spicy indeed: The translation of the in-game magazine "Programmer's Digest" is "Informatik Intim". Which translates back to "Intimate computer science".... Wow. Tell me more, professor Abelson. How deep do the sexpressions go?

Perfect time to start playing New Vegas again.

Why was a civilized pride demonstration in Bonn, Germany not approved[0], while at the same time a demonstration of 15000 in berlin against safety measures got approval?[1]

And who would have guessed that the anti-COVID-safety-measures demo would have to be stopped because COVID safety measures were not respected?

Anyone seen a decent review of life?

There's a lot of reviews, analyses, and "let's play" videos about all sorts of games, books, movies, etc., but I couldn't find anything good on life itself. I'd take almost anything at this point, but I do have a few constraints.

Not interested in:
- Unboxing videos
- Speedruns
- Glitch abuse

Explicitly requested:
- Spoilers
- Comparisons to alternatives
- Recommendations for QoL mods

Just wanna know if it's worth my time before I get hooked.

An immortal AI version of Deepak Chopra?!? Wow, that's high up on my list of what NOT to do with 😂

I thought my job as a programmer was kinda future-proof, but then this: twitter.com/sharifshameem/stat

This shows a text box hooked into of . You can write things in natural language, like "a table with the richest countries in the world with the columns name and GDP", and it automagically generates the code for that. 🤯

Any ideas for a backup job that will likely still exist in 10 years, so I can start training? I heard "cage fighter" will remain viable far into the age of overlords.
