I think we have to assume that a nervous system is an information processing system or a kind of computer. and that any information processing system over a random level of complexity is capable of hosting a mind.

I tend to take it as red that we live in a simulation but the idea that we are in some kind of fish tank, like that we are the point of or important to the simulation we live in kinda absurd.

I don't know how I managed to repeat two whole words without noticing lol

ok but what if dude is gender neutral because dudet is dude feminine and dude bro is dude bro is dude masculine

Also did you know there's a thing called a "badger swarm?"

every time I pass through havant my brain makes the joke "I havant got a clue why I am here" to itself.

Pro-tip: "Foolish mortals" is a gender-neutral way to refer to folks!

ok but the next generation of wireless headphones is most likely going to make smart watches irrelevant IMO, think audio notifications in a virtual sound stage that modulates real world sound. (turning it down relative to your media but maybe able to pick up and clip out speach from people nearby)

enter commands with subvocalised speach.

we already have some noise cancelling tech, all we really need is beefed battery tech and more reliable subvocalisation.

for reference, I am listening to the audio books. one of my favourite performances honestly.

I get the impression I am years behind the books actually coming out.

books keep coming out while I am not looking, and it's honestly the best part of my life at the moment.

"Google wants to kill the URL"


"People have a really hard time understanding URLs" is not a good enough reason to get rid of URLs

To this day, I refuse to use an AMP specific webpage as it breaks the open web. When I'm presented with an AMP link, I edit the URL to remove that component so I get the full page. "Safe" URLs will similarly cater to Google interests and I will not be using it

If other vendors go along with this, I'll write my own browser if I have to

Solarpunk fashion week is great and all, but what if I started a #solarpunk action week? Get everyone out there doing something useful then sharing pics and resources

I'll probably wait until Spring so that it'll be a good time for planting. Maybe the week of Earth Day?

Boost if you'd be interested in something like that!

but in the real world it mostly means something closer to Moore's Law but for automation, as each generation of more and more general purpose automation is made more and more accessible the net cost of producing anything trends down until it hits close enough to zero to make no odds.

I think a lot about post scarcity but it's one of those concepts that is done absolutely no favours by the name people use.

post scarcity sounds utopian levels of off the wall amazing in a way that makes it all to easy for people to slam down their sinisism. we might be able to achieve some level of "true post scarcity" inside simulations if you don't regard computing power as a resource.

you guys heard about this new brand? heard it's really cool these days
