@QuestForTori I mean that is, distinctly, unusually innovative. Probably won’t make it outside the shores of Japan, but still.

A more salty take on the failure of open source/federated systems to create change
We’re objectively in America in a huge and pivotal societal moment for organizing and trying to bring upon change.
And none of it is happening on federated, decentralized platforms. Outside of signal, the important work is happening on the closed platforms y’all claimed would hamper this kind of organization.
I would say this is a great moment to learn from but I have no faith in hardheaded FOSS folks
Also bandcamp is waiving their end of fees again today.
Here is a list of over a thousand black artists on bandcamp you can support:
‘I can’t breathe!’ The final words of David Dungay, an indigenous Australian, 2015, as he was restrained by four officers. Black lives matter, all over the world. https://theconversation.com/i-cant-breathe-australia-must-look-in-the-mirror-to-see-our-own-deaths-in-custody-139848

@prophet_goddess I don’t even know a single thing about baseball but I still love those stories and the way Jon tells them. Even if I am often shocked at how many games are in a season.
Just learned that George Floyd was a part of the legendary group Screwed Up Click back in the 90s. Billboard’s got a good summary of his career and links to several of his songs. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/hip-hop/9391100/george-floyd-screwed-up-click-rapper
While we protest his horrific death at the hands of police brutality, I also want to learn about his life and celebrate it. Black lives matter, and his black life matters.
just a note to the programmers on here: if your work involves ai, neural networks, or other expensive algorithms designed to replace human judgement, consider how much it's truly meant to be more equitable and/or efficient and whether it meets that goal. if it doesn't and you're just automating existing judgement at great expense, the purpose of including a neural network is to obfuscate culpability
this is not theoretical
