Machine learning shows the bias of the people creating it.
Which makes this another 'what else did you expect?' type headline.
CRIME-PREDICTING ALGORITHMS MAY NOT FARE MUCH BETTER THAN UNTRAINED HUMANS
So apparently China decided to totally ban West' garbage (our garbage) importation since the 1st of January and now it's a total mess and we don't know what to do with it anymore (and we haven't planned anything yet, most of our countries didn't even have a plan for that apparently).
The internet died yesterday right after I got home, it was tragic.
the 360 player works fine on my desktop but not on the laptop. It may be a power thing. Or it may be that osx is terrible.
I am still baffled that we live in the future the way we do.
When I was wee and learning about coding it took me a week to make a simple wireframe cube rotate on the screen and that didn't have any interactive part.
And now we can do stuff like this in real time in the browser (it isn't working on safari, but firefox works for me)
I have some slight downtime, it looks like the smallest useful thing for me to do is find a way to play local 360 video files. Which may require me to make a 360 video player.
This may be a pretty simple task because we live in the future.
Wired is suggesting that Amazon Echo Spot is a good thing to use as a sex toy, alternately some voyeurs working at amazon are paying wired to help get more recordings of people fucking. I am not sure how else to interpret this headline:
Ideal for the bedroom, Amazon's Echo Spot is coming to the UK

I have been watching some US news and (at least MSNBC) seems to have realised that pushing farther to the right in response to Fox News is a bad idea so they are pushing to the left a little, or at least trying.
Maybe if they do this for another few years there will actually be some progressive voices in a large media company in the US. I am not holding my breath.
Data visualisation is difficult, we know this.
we have been doing data vis stuff for many years, basic stuff like this is well understood. You don't pretend you are doing a bar chart and then have both bars the same length because you list the numbers next to it.
I am not sure how MSNBC can do this badly on something so common.

Javert has had a very delicate stomach lately so we haven't been giving her apple and carrot bits because they came up right after we gave them to her last time.
She wants everyone to know how very unjust the world is because I just had an apple and she couldn't have any of it.
I am in a position where the most useful thing may be popsicle sticks.
Just what I was looking for.
Do better, internet.
The electronics for the film transfer thing are cleaned up a lot now. Here is what they currently look like.
Most things are stacked up and glued in place on top of the redboard now. It is much easier to carry around.
Gaff tape isn't conductive. This is a very important property for the work that I do.
Like 90% of what I put together works because gaff tape and hot glue aren't conductive.
