Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?
It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?
Today (last Friday of July) is the System Administrator Appreciation Day. Don't forget your backups, and show your appreciation to your local #sysadmin :-) If you want to know more about DSA, the Debian System Administrator team, you can have a look at their webpage https://dsa.debian.org/ - Thanks DSA for taking care of the Debian infrastructure!

So I still have to run more tests but, if you have an Atem Mini Pro (or if you use OBS), you can basically do what Streamyard charges you $49/month for (having guests) for free using https://obs.ninja
For us: Obs.ninja → Browser → Input to Atem → Stream from Atem directly to RTMP endpoint (Owncast, Vimeo, etc.)
(It’s also free and open source under the AGPL license.)

So, Google fired their star AI ethics researcher Dr. Timnit Gebru after she tried to publish a paper demonstrating that Google’s BERT natural language model is unethically biased along gender and racial lines and not fit for use. It sounds like Google squashed the paper because it found the contents “objectionable”, and is claiming that Gebru chose to resign instead of being fired.
Ok, hear me out:
When I used Amazon Prime (through my browser), my laptop would get really hot. I took it as the way streaming works and such.
Now I'm using the stream from my cloud and, even if it is getting hotter, it is nowhere NEAR as hot.
And I bet I could get even less hotter if I played the songs locally.
But what's the difference between Prime Music and my cloud?
DRM not only is bad for you, it's bad for the environment.
Nextcloud is listed as one of the best cloud storage services @ZDNet
