The switch away from a big, centralised "AI" oligopoly is already happening. The tools and rules to exchange small, domain-specific "AI" models, extending them without needing a full training run in the Open Source Way are coming along nicely. Good. 1/6

Might be an , but small, domain-specific "AI" models (it's still mostly machine learning or iterative "AI" ;) actually do make sense. It's becoming just another tool quite fast. They are not magic, they can solve real problems. The problem is the hype and the GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out) approach by "Big AI". 2/6

Not sure if this is or but I really should have paid for the factory half doors for my . All the aftermarket doors just look weak and take away from the overall design of the Jeep. It’s too damn hot in Arizona to have full doors on during the summer but most half doors just look out of place on a Jeep.

Je vois passer des tas de messages enthousiastes sur Panoramax, le nouveau commun numérique alternative de StreetView.

Et quel que soit mon fond résiduel de technophilie enthousiaste devant toute cette énergie bien coordonnée qui permet d'atteindre le niveau de qualité que google a atteint avec des moyens énormes, j'ai quand même de + en + de réticences devant cette frénésie de cartographier/photographier tout au 1/4 de poil. En dehors de l'espace de stockage nécessaire, 1/2

@macsnider @EinfachMarvel Naja, kann man geteilter Meinung zu sein - das MCU ist ein wenig zu umfangreich, um bei Neuproduktionen noch komplett alles vorher als "bekannt" vorauszusetzen.

Außerdem weiß man ja nie, ob es im gleichen Universum stattfindet 😈

PC HP stylé en est à sa 3ème panne de ventilo, à 1 semaine de fin de garantie 24 mois.

1ère fois : changement carte mère.

2ème fois : changement carte mère.

3ème fois : "je dois constater la panne de visu pour qu'on vous le rembourse".

Rappel 15 jours après : "j'ai mis à jour les pilotes, ai fait tourner 1 vidéo 4K toute la journée, tout est OK".

Je rentre, l'allume, enlève les bloatwares : PAF ! Au bout de 10 minutes, "Fan malfunction" et extinction d'office.

An : I think there's one application of that would be a net positive for customers. Of course companies are in no hurry to do that one and it won't happen.

If and similar game marketplaces were to use a blockchain for game ownership, people would be able to resell games freely for the price they choose, just like we could with physical media.

And if there's DRM, the checks keep working even if the company goes under. No DRM is better though.

: Many small but important Open Source projects work without a lot of maintenance since many years. The amount of work needed simply doesn't justify a paid job for one or more maintainers. A lot of maintenance actually is unrelated to code. Answering the same questions on mailing lists/forums over and over again, dealing with spammy pull requests, handling false claims of people that want to add work (they never performed) on this project to their CV etc. I've been there. I know

@jwildeboer@social.wildeboer.net avatar

And the even weirder thing for folks not really deep into the FOSS galaxy:

A lot of maintainers/project owners like it this way. They don't want to spend more time and energy on their project. They care about it the way they do and they are totally fine with it.

So IMHO and what is really needed is an expert task force that jumps in when things go really wrong. Offer direct help to fix the issue(s) and then leave.

This morning @druidess forgot her phone so I went back in the house to get it, and when I brought it out the Bluetooth connected and the Skeletonwitch she had been listening to yesterday on the drive home started blasting out of the car. Yep. That's my wife 🤣

@jake4480 @druidess
Maybe an , but honestly things should just not auto-connect without user interaction.

Every time we open our bluetooth speaker to play something, something goes wrong, we're both using it often and it just auto-connects to the last phone it saw, who might be in the office in the middle of a phone conversation while I just want to play music from my phone.

And then you spend 5 minutes trying to pair your phone instead of the other. Terrible user experience.

, if people in & on here are serious about 2024 elections & not losing to Republicans & Conservatives in 2024 they need to spend more time talking to swing voters.

That means either getting them in here, on , or talking to them where they are.

Pet peeve: phrases like "citizen journalists", "citizen scientists", etc. Professional journalists and scientists are also citizens, kids. Why not just call them "amateur"? It's a perfectly good word. And there is nothing wrong with being an amateur at something.

@ianbetteridge Like doctors and lawyers, journalists should be able to be licensed. Like doctors and lawyers, people practicing without a license should be punished. 😆

Hier j'ai choqué mes collègues au boulot en affirmant que, personnellement, j'aimerais bien payer plus d'impôts.

La discussion était plutôt constructive, et j'ai lancé que j'avais le sentiment que pour certaines catégories de revenus les impôts avaient diminué sur le 5/10/20 dernières années... J'ai dit une connerie ? Est-ce que quelqu'un aurait des sources allant dans ce sens ou contredisant ce sentiment ?

Meiner Ansicht nach machen sie allerdings das, wofür sie gewählt wurden: Liberale Politik. Sie versuchen, Bürokratie einzuhegen und die Freiheit der Wirtschaft zu verteidigen.
Das kann man doof finden, aber mehr mMn auch nicht.
