Seems like Egghead needs to step up their game... #functionalprogramming
I never thought I’d sit at a park on a bright sunny day in 2019, thinking about this essay:
btw This is actually a book. The next chapter is really interesting as well, it's about "Social and Solidarity Economy":
Reading this study about CO2 emission sources, and it seems that pollution is even more connected to #capitalism than I thought: There is a clear correspondence between pollution and income per person. They even talk about what they call the "rebound effect" - when a person starts using less energy, they also start saving more money, money which often ends up financing some other polluting activity, (such as a holiday), and thus we end up where we started.
Ok, lovely Masto people, I have a PDF copy of the zine you can download if you are interested. Because of the way it is put together it is 20MB - any less and it is unreadable.
Please remember that this is MY FIRST ZINE and so while I welcome constructive criticism, nit picking will make me 😭
[I am still working out the logistics for a printed version, so that will be a little while.]
K, thx, bye.
Who needs sci-fi 2 @OCRbot
have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?
simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!
because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!
check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!
For the first time in years I coded something just for fun - a script which generates random words and sorts them by how many search results are there for each word:
