I'd like to make the claim that the barbaric barberry consists at least to 60% of long, sharp, glove-piercing thorns. Ouch.

For an assignment I'll write a short essay about an ethical question concerning computer science/the use of technology e.g. the use of AI in the US legal system.

I'm contemplating my topic selection right now and I'm pretty sure I'll find something thrilling among the pre-defined topics or topics the CCC is covering but I'd like some more inspiration while I'm thinking, so:

What are ethical questions or topics in CS that you personally deem relevant or find most interesting?

I'll be honest, as trashy as I find the movie, "After sleeping for a 100 years, Lestat is awakened by modern music and decides to become Trent Reznor" is still the best way to start a vampire story.

@kaniini makes a very good point.

"What is 'lollipop project'"

It's an attempt to lower the friction of self hosting. Preferably on Raspberry Pi's, Orange Pi's and other lean, small ARM mini-computer boards.

I've been quietly working for the last 3 months on building a self-hosted cloud that's rarely online (only to get updates really) as well as provide services for myself and others while 'disconnected'. Services like contact/calendar/gpx track sync. GPX tracking. Blog, more.

As I've worked on the project a few very amazing folks have made suggestions about how it could be used to lower the barrier of 'just self host' for a LOT of people floating around the federverse.

After some thinking and quiet time I realized it's time to make this a real project.

The 'Lollipop Cloud' is born of a desire to self host when nomadic, facilitating sync when 'in the jungle' or just wanting to give 🖕 to the various corporate entities who harvest your data.

A cloud in a very small box is the goal. A box the size of a credit card or as big as a rack mount server. YOU decide.

More will be online/posted soon.

Uuuuund Wasser über den RPi geschüttet. EIn Glück, dass ich noch keine Zeit hatte, was damit zu machen (sprich: keine Spannungsversorgung) UND das Ding in einem Gehäuse ist ... 😤

Please, if somebody's behaviour/words anger you or puzzle you, talk to them if it's at all possible. Ask them about their reasons and explain your feelings about the issue.

"Why did you say x/choose to do y/used the word z when …?", "I feel that …", "I associate this strongly with … due to …"

It's more work than ranting at the void or at your social bubble, but it's a chance for a better dialogue and better understanding.

I'd like to voice an opinion but then again, a lot of good points have already been made and it wouldn't add any more value.
Also, I'm somewhat disappointed though not surprised.
Also, my, ze drama.
Also, meh.

Also, I should probably get some sleep.
