Curiosity poll regarding social media approach.
Please boost because we're really curious about the experience-approach for as many users as possible.
We have excluded two options here and will explain why:
Twitter exclusively: probably not gonna see this poll if you don't use Fediverse at all
Spiderman: We assume everyone would add Spiderman to their options because of how polls work.
For those who enjoy frequent engagement with library systems in some form and/or have intimate knowledge of structuring digital files, we invite you to join us (@simoon and @manetta) during the Hold & Release Partyline (on Friday 10 + Saturday 11 of June at Varia, Rotterdam), where we will rethink library software, starting from Calibre.

So I turned a little niche laptop into a research computer: https://tv.undersco.re/w/hkPX4Yac8MivrxPxtdeGz3
@gleemie That was my first response as well! Makes for an interesting comparison: society has much more experience with how to make bureaucracies accountable (due-process, objections, paper trails etc). What if AI was treated and regulated as automated bureaucracies rather than an ungraspable novelty?
"The innovation of Al/ML is its ability to “do” things without “doing” things because they were “done” without a “doer.” Proxy discrimination (or algorithmic pricing) has the same real effects of discrimination (or collusion) but without any explicit human decision being made. The effect still happens in the world, but nobody is responsible. Nobody did anything. Nobody knows for sure how it happened or who was affected. The designers and users are granted plausible deniability. Al as alibi."

'Dot Dot Dot' can mean a variety of things: dot to dots, constellations, forest, the fediverse, electronic circuits, soundscapes and ellipsis. An ellipsis is a 'blank' that someone has to fill in, a 'silence' that is a time when people stay calm and listen, and an 'indescribable' meaning that it cannot be described in words.
Hello! I am a scientist and parent looking to chat with folks about the future — the scary parts and also the hopeful parts.
