I gave a keynote at the Mixit conference in Lyon last night:
'Hyperland, a scam in n-dimensions' my adaptation of 'Flatland, a romance of many dimensions' to talk about data and machine learning.
Full write up coming soon.
Many thanks @ingrid and @Bopuc@twitter.com
for letting me borrow their diagrams.

“The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses.” – Utah Phillips
"Just 100 companies are responsible for more than 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions since 1988. The guys who run those companies – and they are mostly guys – have gotten rich on the backs of literally all life on Earth. [...]
They need to know that we won’t leave them alone until they agree to Keep It In The Ground. Not just their companies, but them. Now it’s personal. [...]
The map is in the form of a cartogram which represents the size of countries by their cumulative carbon dioxide emissions since industrialization.

Towards an anti-fascist AI [quote]
"AI is currently at the service of what Bergson called ready-made problems; problems based on unexamined assumptions and institutional agendas, presupposing solutions constructed from the same conceptual asbestos. To have agency is to re-invent the problem, to make something newly real that thereby becomes possible unlike the probable, the possible is something unpredictable, not a rearrangement of existing facts."

I need some help on how to scrape/download a more complex html Manual --> the Manual of #Ardour ; a great audio editing Floss project.
Someone I work with has an offline computer for editing.
-- wkhtmltopdf for example does not want to work.
-- Neither does html2ps
Thanks for boosting - even better, replying !
I've been working on getting ActivityPub Article types fully supported inline in the Mastodon home feed. I've got it working pretty well now, at least for blog posts from write.as. It supports a "safe" subset of rich text using a PR from @Thib (https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/10629) and then I added some code to support <img> tags that proxies images to the local server, just like we currently do with image attachments. Alt text and media blocking are fully supported/respected.
Video demo attached!
@entreprecariat that's pretty much exactly the spirit
@KnowPresent thanks! discovering their work. not what I'm after but still very good
Time to ask this again:
Has anyone seen and remembers the video/artwork that's just an edit of youtubers saying "sorry for not posting", justifying themselves, committing to posting more, etc?
It's so heartbreaking and so genius. I must find it, please #mastohelp
@M_PF good luck!
