“Huawei is proposing a fundamental internet redesign, which it calls ‘New IP,’ designed to build ‘intrinsic security’ into the web. Intrinsic security means that individuals must register to use the internet, and authorities can shut off an individual user’s internet access at any time. In short, Huawei is looking to integrate China’s ‘social credit,’ surveillance, and censorship regimes into the Internet’s architecture.“

That’s a hard no from me, John.

Proof of work mining should be illegal. Destroying our habitat by intentionally wasting energy on an already-unconscionable and ever-increasing scale is a crime against humanity.

The ONLY valid defense of the needless ecological disaster that is Bitcoin and proof of work mining is “I have a vested interest in it.”

Anything else is bullshit.

At least be honest about it, you cunts.

@aral I bet this is going to end the same way it ended with the DNT header. Anyone remember this argument?
"Since it's the default browser / webserver setting, we do not actually know the users choice, so we chose to believe that the user actually wants to have personalized ads and the pescy devs are preventing them from having it. So we choose to ignore the opt-out setting and track you anyways 🤷 "

A programmer implements a bar. The tester goes in and orders a beer, orders zero beers, orders 999999999 beers, orders -1 beers, orders a lizard, and declares the bar ready for release.

The first customer comes in and asks to use the restroom.

The bar catches fire and burns down.

In case you’re wondering if Google or Facebook, etc., will keep you secure, yes, they will try. In the same way a farmer tries to keep their sheep secure from everything else but their own knife.

Security does not imply safety.

Psst, pass it on: “AI ethics” that isn’t critical of surveillance capitalism is simply PR for surveillance capitalists.

“Debugging is the subtle art of reconciling what you think you asked a computer to do with what you actually asked a computer to do.”

I really like how these geta I'm modelling are turning out so far. Just need to model the strap that goes between the toes, then I can move on to texturing. Not yet sure how I'm going to do it, but I have couple of ideas. Suggestions also welcome.

The knight only needed one arrow to bring down the wolf.
"Thank you," the shepherd said, "the beast took my lambs."
"It's my duty."
"It's not like protecting ladies, though."
"It's not a knight's duty to protect ladies. It is our duty to stop men abusing and assaulting others."

I'm trying to learn a few specific things with , but not having much luck finding the information I need. Anyone up for mentoring me this weekend? The overall goal is to make a custom avatar, so experience with that would be ideal, but not necessary.

Literally the only real reason anyone cares about anything blockchain-related is because they think if they speculate, it'll make them rich. There's literally no other reason. And they're willing to risk the future of this world to become rich off of pure speculation. Ugh.

Choosing to become and remain a billionaire in a world where people suffer and die from poverty is violence.
