"#MachineLearning won’t reach its potential–and may actually cause harm–if it doesn’t develop in tandem with user experience #ux #design"

okay reasons to block someone:

- you don't like them
- you don't care about them at all
- you don't want to talk to them
- you don't want them to talk to you
- you don't like their avatar
- they look like your ex
- they don't use enough emojis
- you met them 12 years ago and they smelled weird
- you love them too much
- you like them but don't like what they say all the time
- they don't like 🍍
- literally any reason it doesn't matter blocking is great

Today I made a raspberry pi glitch camera using python. It takes a photo every 0.5sec and glitches it. I think it worked pretty well!

I'll open source it eventually.

Library used for glitches:
