VR/MR now:

  • Screen on your face
  • AirPods in your ears
  • Hand controls/gestures

VR future:

  • Neuro implants
  • Actually taste food, smell roses, feel textures
  • Everyone can hear, see, run, fly, etc.

Might take many years, but I do think it's coming.

SO: "Happy news sweetheart, you are pregnant..."

Me: "with a million influenza cells, huh?"

Also: how subtly futuristic is it that we now have Flu and RSV tests available over the counter?!

Of course they could have made these tests available for years, they just didn't think it would be profitable.

The Open Society Foundations are launching a project that wants to "kick-start a global public conversation (...) on the long-term, structural implications of AI on the information ecosystem."

Applicants are to submit their specific scenarios – which may later be fleshed out in a workshop in Italy.

It's easy to apply and eligibility criteria are broad. However, the deadline is approaching fast (23/02/24). 🕛

Remembering means moving forward with a knowledge that changes the course of the future for the better.

It does not mean to stagnate.

Knowledge is the power we have been given to move forward with an acquired wisdom that makes us better.

I genuinely find it entirely disheartening that I keep questioning more and more articles I read online. Is this an AI-text? Has someone actually put some heart and passion into this?

It's really sad, and I can't imagine that this will improve significantly over the coming years, rather it will continue to deteriorate.

Now I'm starting to imagine that a new web will eventually emerge, with a renewed focus of showcasing texts that have been hand-crafted by humans.

An mania explanation thread:

Consider this:
When the U.S. Constitution was drafted human beings were entirely capable of comprehensively understanding nearly every aspect of how the world around them worked.

How to grow food. Run a business. Understand emerging topics in science, math, philosophy and the arts. The optimism running through the renaissance thinkers is not surprising.

The drafters of the Constitution were masters of their world (to often unfortunately include slaves). They were confident in their direction moving into the future because they could predict the future --- based on their comprehensive knowledge of their present.

This is scary. In one year AI has improved very quickly from the time Will Smith was eating spaghetti to this. I can see this passing for tv commercials, small video ads online, even taking jobs away from CGI techs in Hollywood.

I'm really concerned if we have no regulations, people will start believing what they see and conspiracies will become daily news.

The only thing Ray Bradbury got wrong in "Fahrenheit 451" is that we would build our houses out of fireproof plastic (eliminating the core mission of firefighters). Everything else is on track.

I so don't want to care about US politics right now (or really, anything from the US that's not a movie or a TV show), and infuriates me that the whole stability of the world or even its future itself hangs in the balance (hello climate emergency) of that stupid election...

I can't even wish for the country to collapse and become irrelevant, because it means that the power vacuum will be filled by China (it's already happening, but it will speed up the process in very unpleasant ways) and very probably Russia in Europe because the EU has been unable to become a united entity.

Car companies, on the basis of sunk cost, will plough on, but will rebrand it as AI Driving Assistant

We're definitely moving toward the unsocial network if we aren't already there. Bowling alone? Forget it. Apparently the desired tech future — maybe not mine or yours; what is pushing — is about isolationism, where you don't even have to leave your desk (worker drones!) or your bunker ( overlords!)

is also being pushed by another — political — group. 😕

Coincidence? 🤔

@qlp@linh.social avatar

Having been a FreeBSD (and BSD in general) user since the 2.x days and managed a small fleet of servers since the heady 4.x days (including a few Sun UltraSPARC II and IIi servers and dealing with the ATA problems), I've been rooting for FreeNAS and TrueNAS CORE for a long time.

It's kind of disheartening to have seen support for FreeBSD from hardware, software and cloud vendors fade away. I knew that when TrueNAS SCALE was going to be based on Linux that it'll eventually lead to CORE getting sunsetted.

I do have to say that I am a bit of a hypocrit in that I migrated from CORE to SCALE on my TrueNAS Mini X+ and only have one server running FreeBSD (even though the cloud provider no longer provides support).

@grahamperrin@bsd.cafe avatar

@qlp please, has anyone at TrueNAS used the word "sunset"?

Maybe implicit in "longer-lived maintenance train", however neither of the areas below uses the word sunset:

Look away
just don't look

To ignore poverty
we quickly learned

We should live
Work and consume
Keep running in the gears
that some
continue to expand their wealth

But forget
we all should not forget
that quickly we
could end up
where we have looked away

So some few want it
so that we go on
without questioning
without fighting
for the right of everyone
in decency every morning
to wake up
