When I worked on the Metaverse, I talked with developers about whether generative AI would make creating games cheaper and they disagreed.

They also quoted the example of CGI in Hollywood movies. It simply raised the bar on expectations versus enabling cheaper special effects.

AI voiced audiobooks have been a boon to indie creators by giving them access to the audiobook market without having to paying for studio time for human narrators.

It means there’s now even more content for readers that needs filtering and narrators are losing gigs. This is what looks like. Two steps forward and one step back.

@carnage4life I'm not sure there are any steps forward here.

Quick! I’ve got a free hour or so to work on my current novella. Enjoy Nansen’s blep and stop distracting me.

As above. Nansen the cutest ginger and white cat.
Oh Nansen! Little ginger cat dude looking straight into the camera. Massive blep.

Very happy to announce that @tomcoates and I have been given a grant to develop an end-to-end encryption (E2EE) protocol for DMs, including a reference implementation and a report to submit to the W3C SocialCG.

Why the f*** would try to coopt the legacy of Immanuel ?

It's probably not a serious question. Maybe it's just a silly immature dunk on / pride. Or maybe there's something darker in Kant's writings that thinks supports recent behavior (I have no reason to believe there is, I'm just openly musing).

Either way it's certainly a bizarre new front in the conflict: war.

@blogdiva @benroyce Kant was born in Königsberg, which is now known as Kaliningrad. It is a port city on the Baltic Sea situated north of Poland. It used to belong to Germany until it changed hands in World War 2. Crimea is somewhere else. Not to take away from anything else you've said.

@Gargron Question for you, sir. How risky is it to run HEAD for ? Is it safe to assume that's what https://mastodon.social is running? If one is brave enough to do that, do you have any advice on how to make upgrades any more efficient?

Gargron,
@Gargron@mastodon.social avatar

@pdxmisfit We run nightlies, which is almost the same thing. It’s relatively safe.

@EgbertS Lab, because even if I managed to develop at home, I don’t have the right equipment to scan, so would need to send to a lab anyway.

In a surprise move, Mastodon now operates as a US entity! Featuring a new board of directors, and a 501c3 status, it's a new milestone for the project.
