You’re just throwing a tantrum at this point

New ‘Matrix’ Movie In Works At Warner Bros From Drew Goddard (deadline.com)

I started rolling my eyes before I saw Drew Goddard’s name, who apparently approached WB with his own idea. He is an incredibly gifted storyteller and I believe his passion for this world is sincere. I’m pretty excited to see what he has in mind.

… does USENET count as a forum experience? I think mine is from the Core War news group from like '90 or '91

It’s funny that a character that was in exactly one manuscript in the 1400s got included in Unicode

Edit: and it was done wrong. I found that pretty hilarious

I live in an apartment building that was constructed in '22 and a landline wasn’t even an option anymore, it’s all just gigabit ethernet.

Sure, but it’s not a landline anymore

Better drink some colloidal silver in chlorine, no way could that be a scam. Gee why am I turning blue and shitting my guts out

The idea that all politicians are corrupt and conniving bastards is mainly a right-wing fiction. They assume everybody acts exactly like they themselves do

Wonder if using first-past-the-post has something to do with that. Seems like a pretty terrible system

My real worry with Google's voyage into enshittification (thanks to Cory Doctorow @pluralistic the term) is YouTube.

Through YT, for the past 15 years, the world has basically entrusted Google to be the custodian of pretty much our entire global video archive.

There's countless hours of archived footage — news reports, political speeches, historical events, documentaries, indie films, academic lectures, conference presentations, rare recordings, concert footage, obscure music — where the best or only copy is now held by Google through YouTube.

So what happens if maintaining that archival footage becomes unprofitable?

But don’t you see, everybody needs to know exactly their opinion

Even though I occasionally toy with the idea of learning eg. COBOL so I could rake in the $$$ from consulting jobs to add features to some 60 year old codebase for a bank or something like that, I’m not sure that amount of stress would ever be worth it

Reddit surfed through the years of cheap vc money but going public could kill it.

Wonder which fascist tech billionaire will buy it when it finally implodes

Well sure that’s fundamentally true, but really doesn’t give any sort of accurate picture of how estimates are done any more than “humans are just collections of cells” does, and anybody who does estimates without using some sort of data as the basis and is purely guessing is doing it wrong as fuck.

It’s not like we have no idea how long certain tasks have taken in the past, or what affects how long something will take.

Have you never wondered why I drink only distilled water or rainwater? And only pure grain alcohol? Have you ever heard of a thing called fluoridation – fluoridation of water? Do you realise that fluoridation is the most monstrously-conceived and dangerous communist plot we have ever had to face?

I wonder if he’s being treated with kid gloves because he gives an excuse for not aiding Ukraine. “We wanted to, but it’s that damn Orbán”

I figure you’re right, it really doesn’t seem all that likely but it was just a thought that popped into my head.

But yeah, it’s interesting to see what this current “turbulence” will lead to. Requiring consensus only has a chance to work if everyone is acting in good faith, so when a member state is well on its way to becoming essentially a dictatorship with aims that are directly at odds with the EU’s goals, there’s simply no way consensus will work.

It’s interesting that the EU really doesn’t have too many good mechanisms to do anything about bad-faith actors in the first place. Eg. using Hungary’s funding as a lever has been tried, but because of the consensus requirement, Orbán can essentially hold decisions hostage until he gets what he wants.

Too many systems have been built with the implicit assumption that all participating actors are acting in good faith, and a single bad-faith actor can actually cause remarkable amounts of trouble because there’s no mechanisms for stopping them

Oh stop playing the victim, you just don’t like that people disagree with you; asking you to actually give one single example of this wokeness-pushing of epic proportions that you said is the problem isn’t asking you to apologize – it’s asking you to give an example.
