derbis,

Thanks for the heads up, will be there

derbis,

“…AI” concerns me. I use quotation marks there because what is often referred to as AI today is not whatsoever what the term once described.

Lost me right there. Not only was and is this AI, but the term gets narrower over time, not broader. If you want to go by “what the term once described,” you have to include computer vision, text to speech, optical character recognition, behavior trees for video game enemies, etc etc etc.

When I see people complain about calling LLMs “AI,” I think the only definition that would satisfy them is “things computers can do that we aren’t used to yet.”

derbis,

Oop, wish I’d read this comment before mine. 100% right

derbis,

How do you short an IPO?

derbis,

Man I really don’t get how discord has become the default for so many things. It’s chat. It’s persistent, but not in a way that’s easy to look through. Like, support forums or discussions about things that aren’t just fleeting? Whyyy

derbis,

Just a reminder that Vice was founded by Gavin McInnes, who also founded the Proud Boys and explicitly mentioned wanting to use Vice as a hipster-to-chud pipeline.

derbis,

Sure! This is a very illuminating article about the zeitgeist in the early 00s, including an interview with McInnes with the quote where he notoriously said “I love being white.”

I'm looking for a way to create webpages without HTML, any tips?

Hello! I’ll try to explain what I’m looking for: I sometimes have to write simple web pages (not just text, also buttons and video players and so on), but I really really hate writing html code. What I’m used to is QML, which I like a lot, because of the ease of placing objects exactly where I need using the anchors and...

derbis,

Note that Wix is under boycott because it uses coercion against its employees to get them to publicly side with Israel

derbis,

Greenhouse gases are not the only environmental concern. I do agree about a more specific time scale.

derbis,

This is Morning Mood by Edvard Grieg. I usually see it more associated with, well, the morning, than with love. Especially in cartoons.

To such an extent that the Simpsons did a takeoff on it, even.

Was sure you were talking about one of the other suggestions, especially the Tchaikovsky love theme from Romeo and Juliet, haha

derbis,

Ahhhhhh hahaha

The sax solo in this feels like a dentist’s drill to me

derbis,

You are being ridiculous and I have a hard time believing that you are making this argument earnestly.

Your argument: there were sometimes fires before there was home electricity, therefore how can we blame electricity for causing fires?

derbis,

Yikes. This isn’t a neurotypical/neurodivergent thing. This is a bad leader.

derbis,

Almost always? I have some strong doubts about that. It’s just that you don’t see articles about “Nothing is particularly going wrong with redd.it”

derbis,

Da bussy seems to have made a comeback lately especially

derbis, (edited )

I was on it back when it was in closed beta and even went to their launch party. People were even saying how much the quality was declining as the closed beta got larger. It’s been a shitfest for a while - it seems tailor-made for blowhards to speak authoritatively without having any real authority on an issue.

To react to the article:

most interesting and longest-lasting corners of the internet: Quora

The first one is subjective but the second one isn’t - and neither are true.

derbis,

Can you be more explicit about what you mean

derbis,

Male mouse cells no less. Of all the things we have to worry about, we gonna throw mouse sexism on the pile?

derbis,

Wow that was fascinating, thanks. For those who prefer to read, there was a full transcript!

derbis,

I think one thing that could realistically reduce flying is making it much more expensive. Of course that would exacerbate what this article calls the global justice gap. But sometimes you have to accept a trade-off and I think that could work

derbis,

Those are good considerations. However I question this:

would dial back to business and first class only

In other words, you’re suggesting that the number of flights would remain the same or near the same, and the seats would just be backfilled with higher-paying customers. That could be a problem, yeah.

My presumption/goal is that you’d need to raise prices enough to make the demand drop sharply at whatever price point be necessary to reduce the number of flights. Airlines would have to price in reduced demand on top of whatever fees are imposed to continue making it worth it to them. If the prices only result in an 80% carbon reduction, raise them some more.

Additionally, at a certain price point it may be that alternative fuels become viable - fees could take this into account to encourage them.

As for trans-ocean flights, these are probably unavoidable, yeah.

Perhaps it could be accomplished by simply limiting the number of permitted flights and allowing prices to float. I suppose that’s taking up the same goal from the other end. Whatever happens, it seems inevitable that fewer people will be flying, and they’ll be paying more. If we’re to tackle the problem at all.
