Hey everyone! I have a blog now!

The first article is called: "Do Androids dream of neuromorphic sheep?". It's an introduction to the cyberpunk novels I'm writing.

My fav. topic is AIs and androids. I'm writing a novel about androids - well, more WITH than ABOUT.

I had this idea: What if Asimov's robots, but with directives - like in Robocop - instead? What if they have emotions, but are tied to their directives? What if unlike Blade Runner, the androids got manufactured in a given paint so they couldn't disguise as humans? And what if instead of Free Will, they had a limited will? What if they could fall in love?

That's my world.

Just realized I didn't write my yet! Does it count as ? 😜

Gen-Xer born in ; since kid I was a and liked and , so it was logical I'd eventually discover the genre (, , , , , ...)

Aside from that I've done and ; have gnu/#Linux on my PC and recently I discovered .

Currently a scifi novel about and .

tech: our movement is about rights and privacy! we are perfectly willing to get political and lobby about these things and start committees and standards bodies

Microsoft: *gives a lot of money and a calculator to open source*

tech: we are about providing solutions. I don't understand why people are being so political and divisive. can't the people not getting huge funding grants simply accept that now some of us are rich and we run the entirety of tech? this seems petty of people. further,

request:

Show confirmation dialog before aborting a new toot.

Sometimes I click twice after closing the keyboard, and having a confirmation dialog would save me a lot of frustration.

Ah, how long since I hadn't dedicated myself to enjoying good ! :blobcatmelt:

Between the job and stress, I haven't had the time nor mood to go on writing my novel, but this music is super inspiring; makes me remember that feeling of escapism and wonder that I experienced while writing... :blobcatlisten:

I really needed this.

Well, I'm off. Loved to be here watching this classic with you guys.

1:22:18 Kinda ironic that scientists, who a lot of the time were portrayed as the bad guys, are now struggling to save us from an imminent global catastrophe.

1:15:27 That scene with the old man trying to squeeze all his money in the briefcase always made me laugh.

1:00:00 In my youth I always wondered about the possibility of studying psychic powers scientifically. What would have happened if Tetsuo had cooperated with the authorities? What if he had found a sensei, maybe the old prophetess woman?

What if Tetsuo had effectively helped the social revolution succeed?

The fact that the powers got in a flawed vessel such as him felt so disappointing IMO.

moment: was the first anime fansub movie I ever watched. Watched it with a friends from a computer club back in '89 (or was it '90?).

At that time, I didn't even know what was; but I was already hooked with the genre.

"Will someone think of the landlords who own 150 apartments?"

Hard NO.

33:19 The sewers and the huge water piping were an important part of the aesthetics IMO.

31:30 those overpasses in futuristic cities always filled my imagination.

You know what this image means, we're back at it!

"Once there was a time where #emojis were not standardized and each vendor created their own ones. Hardly imaginable, but this is the success story on how emojis achieved world domination."

…as a beginning of a documentary. I really, really, just right now want such a documentary on emojis! πŸ˜ƒ πŸš€ πŸ˜ŽπŸ“œ

WeChat is fascinating in that it's like watching a grim cyberpunk story unfolding in real life.

This is not a good thing. Cyberpunk was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual.
