sarcasm is already hard to understand online, even harder for generative AI

I know sometimes I would take a peek at the person's comment history to see if they were well informed / a shill for the product. The AI can't do that

I've seen some dashboards around, is this what you're looking for?

At the same time, the variables in that calculation might change over time. If it becomes easy enough for them to support it, or the costs of not supporting it get too high, they might change their minds.

Alternatively: wean yourself and your friends off of snapchat. In my part of the world, snapchat isn't popular anymore. It doesn't offer anything new and so barely anyone uses it.

Another side I haven't seen mentioned

It might be easier to track users in Chrome. If even a few users open it in chrome instead of Firefox, that's a benefit for them

 

Van der Mark was unable to say how many children were on the bus. However, he said that all staff and students had been accounted for and were being checked out by first responders on the scene. He could not confirm whether there were injuries.

He said the school district is working with police to ensure parents and guardians of the students on the bus are informed. Parents are being told to meet their kids at the South Cariboo Rec Centre in 100 Mile House, van der Mark said

This part of the interview felt relevant to the fediverse (note that this was pasted from a transcript, and you might find it easier to watch the video than read the transcript):

Australia's safety commissioner recently took on Elon Musk for example requesting the removal of vision of a stabbing in a church here in Sydney. It was unsuccessful, should tech platforms be held responsible for spreading that sort of content.

Well I think we need to break that question down and actually question the form that tech platforms have taken, because we live in a world right now where there are about five major social media platforms that are very literally shaping the global information environment for everyone. So we have a context where these for-profit surveillance tech actors have outsized control over our information environment, and present a very very attractive political target to those who might want to shape, or misshape, that information environment. So I think we need to go to the root of the problem. The issue is not that every regulator doesn't get a chance to determine appropriate or inappropriate content. The issue is that we have a one-size fits all approach to our shared information ecosystem, and that these companies are able to determine what we see or not, via algorithms that are generally calibrated to increase engagement; to promote more hyperbolic or more inflammatory content, and that we should really be attacking this problem at the root: beginning to grow more local and rigorous journalism outside of these platforms and ensuring that there are more local alternatives to the one-size fits-all surveillance platform business model.

This was an interview on ABC (Australian public broadcaster) with Signal Foundation president Meredith Whittaker. It covered current events about Signal and encrypted messaging, with a small bit on AI at the end. The original title of the video is bad.

Key points in the video:

  • 1:30 - Should platforms be held responsible for [the content]
  • 3:15 - (paraphrased) Governments want law enforcement to have access to encrypted communications, why not?
  • 4:15 - (paraphrased) What if people are using it for criminal behaviour
  • 7:00 - (paraphrased) Random AI section

The original feels more appropriate for the comics community, while the edit is more of a meme created from the original comic

This might also help people find better versions of fruits they may not otherwise enjoy

I almost prefer lemons of Lemmy 🍋

I like both, but the original should probably be the main post. Then have the current/relevant edit(s) in the comments

Love the new icon!

I saw some discussion about promoting the other communities. Are you looking to continue having both movies and television content here, or should I try and post them in separate ones?

For updates on the patients and activities of MMR, as well as Marine Mammal related content in general. It's the season for a lot of rescues right now, so hopefully there is a good bit of content.

I'm planning to eventually see if the organization wants to take over the community officially

The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Society (VAMMR) is a global leader in marine mammal rescue, research, and rehabilitation. [They] respond to over 300 marine mammal emergencies each year and operate Canada’s only dedicated marine mammal hospital facility.

Saw this post on another site:

If you previously did not our mini announcement HomeBox was archived by the original author. We are working to continue the project ourselves. This release is mostly just switching things over to our namespace and getting a docker image published for people to switch over to, but also contains some minor bug fixes.

What is HomeBox

Homebox is the inventory and organization system built for the Home User! With a focus on simplicity and ease of use, Homebox is the perfect solution for your home inventory, organization, and management needs. While developing this project, with the the following principles in mind:

  • Simple - Homebox is designed to be simple and easy to use. No complicated setup or configuration required. Use either a single docker container, or deploy yourself by compiling the binary for your platform of choice.
  • Blazingly Fast - Homebox is written in Go, which makes it extremely fast and requires minimal resources to deploy. In general idle memory usage is less than 50MB for the whole container.
  • Portable - Homebox is designed to be portable and run on anywhere. We use SQLite and an embedded Web UI to make it easy to deploy, use, and backup.

v0.11.0 Changes

Contributing

We are accepting any type of contribution, including bug reports, feature requests, PRs, etc. if your interested. We firmly believe that open source software lives and dies by its community, and we're hoping that you'll join us on this journey as we figure things out and make HomeBox great.

For Those Switching

If your planning to switch from the original image to this one, please make sure you backup your existing data. And then you can simply switch the docker image to ours, and all of your data should be right where you left it when you start the docker container.
