On technology and war Show more
This is a very interesting development at Microsoft. It seems like it could be an even harder discussion than the ones happening at Google. Is it an inherent property of working in the tech industry in the USA (or academia for that matter) that your work could some day be used for war? Obviously it could be done without your company's help, or anywhere else in the world. But the tight connection between the military and economy in US makes it so much more direct.

Doctor Who First Episode Trailer Feels... Show more
Since (a) Twitter is horrible and (B) I hate when people reveal spoilers, I've decided to do all my Doctor Who reacting here on Masto.
Did you watch the new trailer for the first episode? https://youtu.be/L6QRnULIjv4
I wasn't sure I would but I just rewatched the last series finale, then the new season trailers, then I just couldn't resist.
It did not dissapoint. And it's not too spoilery.
Conclusion: it's going to be brilliant.
If you're looking to #deletefacebook maybe check out #Hubzilla. Its a decentralized alternative with tons of features. Events, groups (called Forums), fine-grained privacy settings, and even a CMS, wiki engine, and file storage.
It could definitely use some frontend work and UX improvements. But it's a really powerful system. And, unlike #Mastodon, you don't have to stress about picking your first hub because it allows channel migration!
So I've been out of mastodon for a while but getting back into it as Twitter leads to depression and obsession. What's the best mobile way to use mastodon these days? I am using saved links to two instances but it seems to have cookie issues. Is there an app that surfaces all the customs stuff in an instance like cybre?

Thinking is computing.
Intelligence is the fixed point of this loop.
AI is a convergence.
