Co-founder of “Food Not Bombs” Global, Arrested today
"Keith McHenry, the co-founder of the global movement “Food Not Bombs” was arrested and jailed by the Santa Cruz Police Department today for the crime of serving food to the unhoused community members. Approximately 10 officers of the Santa Cruz Police Department arrested Keith at approximately 10:00 am today, December 27, 2022, in River Street Parking Garage #10, 24 River Street, as he was setting up tables to serve a meal out of the intense rain.
This egregious treatment of this community hero comes just two days after Food Not Bombs served a free Christmas feast to over 500 unhoused persons in downtown Santa Cruz. Keith is being held at Santa Cruz County Jail facing two misdemeanor charges of blocking a parking space and loitering in a parking garage. The police also confiscated some equipment belonging to Food Not Bombs including tables, cups for coffee and sugar."
Actually cannot believe this. After 13 years, Sony/BMG have decided to take down Rick Astley's "Never gunna give you up" due to a dispute with Youtube over ad royalties.
It's completely blocked globally. Actual end of an era.
capitalism, credit scores
So you're telling me that some rich dude started assigning numbers to strangers to inaccurately predict how much they're willing to work against their will, and other rich dudes liked the idea so much that the number now has a real impact on people's lives, and then some people learned how to game it by borrowing when they didn't need to, so now you're expected to learn about these random companies and perform their rituals demonstrations of faith to have a decent life?
This is John Mastodon.
John CWs triggering and stressful posts.
John captions his images.
John boosts everything he would have liked to see in his timeline if he hadn't seen it.
John is kind.
Be like #JohnMastodon.
(to the tune of “modern major general”)
I am the very model of a modern johnny mastodon
I’ve information federated; posted and then passed along
I know the latest meta and I quote the memes historical
from jokes of jorts to pineapples in order categorical
I’m very well-acquainted too with matters programmatical
I’ve learned to work with ruby and with frameworks enigmatical
about the twitter influx I am teeming with the latest news
on bullshit elon musk has done and twitter layoff interviews
This is something I'm really worried about. We need a response to AI generated art that doesn't depend on expanding surveillance or censorship (through stricter IP enforcement) or criminalize research etc (by expanding CFAA to include image scraping for example)
We've been down this exact road before, from the creation of the VCR to the explosion of the Internet. #CopyrightMaximalism does not help artists. Period. We need a better way. #copyright #AI #AIart #NoAIart #artificialintelligence
Always booyahs back.
Sometimes finds a way.
Everything is alive.
Information is god.
Game mechanics are art.
