YOU! SHALL NOT! DECRYPT!

Dying @ this anecdote from Andrew Thaler on birbsite:
“Six years ago today, I walked into the techiest tech-bro bar in San Fransisco, positioned myself obnoxiously into a group of Dudes Wearing Google Glass, and loudly said "Ok Google, Call Mom."
It was magical.
How were you radicalized against pervasive technology?”

This echoes @mako’s thoughts:
‘These decisions to embrace nonfree and private development tools undermine our credibility in advocating for software freedom and compromise our freedom, and that of our users, in ways that we should reject.’

@bob Back in the eighties I was doing a thesis on artificial neural networks and wrote one myself in FORTRAN😂. When reading the Wikipedia page on this I'm surprised how little scientific progress has been made. It's still the same kind of propagation functions and learning process determining the weights and thresholds in the network that I used. Anyway I agree it's mainly hype and little substance. Great link.
dont ever learn about computers, their history, how to code etc, because then youll see the massive gap between what they are and what they could be, and it will haunt you for the rest of your days
Guix 1.0 is out at last! YEAH!
It even includes a "graphical" (read, curses-like) installer now! (The oldschool DIY route is still available if you like that though!) Lots of other stuff too!
Congrats Guix team!
