It is so creepy to have my computer eavesdropping on me and then recommending stuff to me. I really wish it would stop. But you know, serves me right for using the popular short video clip site. I should stop using it.

Some ripe planet-facing adbusting by Brandalism and Subvertising International at Seven Sisters, North London (photographer Michelle Tylicki) and Brighton (unknown). 500 sites around Europe apparently, in broad daylight.

Are we about to enter one of these moments where human art will have to bounce on a revolutionary technique (AI) and create a new artistic language, very distinguishable from what machines can do?

Hey @draco … I haven‘t forgotten you. I am just very sick right now.

Yes, this garbage fire no longer uses a country's worth of energy.

It's still socially, politically and economically toxic and shouldn't exist.

I don't care if the torment nexus runs on renewables. I don't want it to exist.

One of my current pipe dreams is to start up a cooperatively owned cafe that does computer and cellphone repairs (and helps people install free OSes on their old machines).

The whole Internet is broken, and will only be fixed once self-hosting becomes easy-to-use and normalized.

Fucking around with some tech is not "engineering". It's not pointless, it can be very creative and rewarding and enlightening, it can teach, it can broaden horizons. It's an important form of play. But not everything is "engineering" and that distinction matters.

I see people who believe that the final stage of rest is restlessness and I'm here to tell you that this feeling is simply the first sign that resting has begun. Restlessness means that you're no longer dead fucking tired, not that you're rested. The feeling to look for is sustained calm. Most Americans don't have enough vacation to rest in this way.

I think this is really sweet & empowering. :)

"Abundance thinking. If the computing capacity feels too limited for anything, you can rethink it from the point of view of abundance (e.g. by taking yourself fifty years back in time): tens of kilobytes of memory, thousands of operations per second – think about all the possibilities!"

My very real, personal "oh" moment about climate change was visiting a peat bog I used to love as a kid. It was this timeless little place full of spongy mosses, weird plants and bugs, a marvel for the nature-fascinated kid I was.

I went back last year. It was drying out, an agonising ecosystem barely recognisable from my childhood memories. Never thought I would feel grief about a bog of all things, but hey. Strange times.

did you know that Mastodon supports marking your posts with a language marker?

if you set in your preferences your main language that you post in, people who don't understand it, can then choose to not have those posts in their timelines. if you post something in other languages you can mark those posts individually as such in post window/text-area.

if you do that, it's nice and considerate from you.
