Tonight I have quite the ethical conundrum. Honour a prior commitment to accompany my friend to a show about , or heartlessly bin him off to catch some ultraviolence at the bout (first time for ages it's transmitting during proper UK hours)!

whenever blobby comes across the TL it's time to remind everyone of this essay
xenogothic.com/2018/11/28/blob

"Blobby [...] is the libidinal ejecta of the class war machine itself, levelling all other idols in his burning immanence, a mutation emerging from the molten intensity of sociopolitical flows.

Great fortieth birthday bash for my S.O last night, bless her. With a number of big happy summer events out of the way (camping, birthdays, etc) I am now really excited about returning to my projects. Essays, Website, app idea, studio set up, song writing, meditation, exercise. And Florence in a few weeks too. So much to look forward to... As soon as I sleep off this hangover... 😴

Received 'The Philanderer's Guide To Meditation' for my birthday. Excited to get started. 😉

WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)

Putting out another call: I'm looking for #musicians using #Linux or #opensource software to create their tunes.

This is for my podcast Linux For Everyone. To be honest, this stuff is hard to find.
