Really mad about this Linux kernel - academic research kerfuffle. See: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nfs/YH%2FfM%2FTsbmcZzwnX@kroah.com/
TL;DR: researchers at UMN introduced patches to Linux kernel that contained known-buggy code TO WRITE A PAPER and the UMN IRB didn't consider it human subjects research
Wtaf were these researchers thinking? How did the IRB not consider this human subjects resaerch? How did someone think this was an ethical thing to do?
in william gibson's Pattern Recognition there's a character who's literally allergic to branding and logos, it makes them sick, that's how i'm starting to feel about this shit
"Birol compared the current surge of emissions to the financial crisis, when emissions rose by more than 6% in 2010 after countries tried to stimulate their economies through cheap fossil fuel energy. “It seems we are back on course to repeat the same mistakes,” he warned. “I am more disappointed this time than in 2010.”
That's capitalism, baby!
I wish there was a way to filter news so I just learn about things that happened at a higher/systemic level.
I don't want to know about individual occurences really. Just trends. Systemic shifts. My brain can grok those things more easily.
Individual stories are too confusing and nuanced, and I don't want something that is either extraordinarily bad or extraordinarily good excessively coloring my understanding of How Things Generally Are.
Friend Camp has about 50 active users and I just noticed we have more than half a million posts here since August 2018! I mean that's 11 a day per person on average but still. That seems wild to me.
Last I checked something like 75% of our posts are unfederated. That's still 125 thousand posts sent to the fediverse. I think local-only posting increases the vitality of community, increasing the volume of overall activity, and contributing more to the fediverse than a less vital instance would.
Funny how findings of natural sciences are taken to be science but findings of social sciences are taken to be opinions that you can debate without knowing anything about the literature and the consensuses.
No you don't know more about Language than linguists because you speak a language or two, just like you don't know more about kidneys than a doctor because you have a couple. In fact if you did know a thing or two maybe you'd be less of a bigoted ignoramus.
Kinda disappointed with the ending. I was expecting the weird witch thing to be just another symptom of Wanda's reality breaking down, but it was the actual explanation that made less sense than what it was explaining. Then the original Vision showed up, remembered everything and just... decided to fuck off? And Wanda decided that she didn't care about Vision coming back from the dead and became a hermit instead?
