Alrighty, first day of the ICDL conference in Austin, Texas. The international conference on development and learning is a small, interdisciplinary research conference somewhere between AI and cognitive sciences, and it is such a specialized venue that I kind of doubt anybody else in the Fediverse is here, but please prove me wrong 😊

I like how this article about why Austin didn't end up being the second tech hub skips the laws discriminating against women in the form of anti-abortion laws. Like 50% of potential employees were risking their lives in moving to the state, but maybe it was the power outage that did it in.

Ever wondered just how similar a Hyundai Ioniq 5 really is to an Austin Princess?

Wonder no more!

One thing I love about Austin Public Library is that they run an open seed-sharing service:

“What I saw was students linking arms, hugging each other while being brutalized by the police. I think the only violence we saw that day was from the police.”

I spoke with two anti-Zionist Jewish supporters of the pro-Palestine protests at #UTAustin, including one who got arrested on April 29. Read it from Deceleration here:

I interviewed two anti-Zionist Jews about their perspective on the protests for , one a current grad student at , and the other an alumni. Both were present at the big protest at April 29, and one was arrested—but only one would have been classified as an "outsider," even though they both have deep ties to the school.

I've got their story coming out later this week at Decelerate.news.

Got hit and run today! Well, hit and dawdle. Just parked up and the car next to me was leaving, thought he was a bit close, then the whole car wobbled and he KEPT GOING. Honked my horn, got out to shout at him and he just stared at me, the other people, said nothing and drove off super slowly. No apology, nothing.

Really quite cross about it because it's not worth putting through insurance.

The #Austin American Statesman did a better job of describing the circumstances which led to Dr. Rich Heyman's arrest, including giving his side of the story thru his lawyer. Heyman claims he was shoved by a cop and grabbed the police bicycle to steady himself. https://www.statesman.com/story/news/crime/2024/05/10/professor-richard-heyman-ut-austin-pro-palestine-protest-arrested-fired-interfering-police/73639778007/
