Explored github copilot,a paid service, to see if it encodes code from repositories w/ restrictive licenses.

I checked if it had code I had written at my previous employer that has a license allowing its use only for free games and requiring attaching the license.
yeah it does

hi there! I am looking for references of digital archives that use interesting / less usual navigation systems for 'browsing / exploring' content; it can be through taxonomies, queries, any other ways of inviting for engagement and interaction. Any thoughts? 🖥️ ✨ 🔭 👀 Thanks

no more micro in front of blogging: birdsite notes 

After the a failed web3 experiment with hexagonal avatars, Twitter went full circle on web2.0 and removed the 'micro' from microblogging, introducing their 'notes' feature.

I don't really have a problem with that, but it feels like they just reinvented Wordpress...

you know, it's interesting that ppl constantly say that ppl come out of academia a leftist and brainwashed, but i still find that most ppl talk about how these places are really not that...

they fight us tooth and nail so where is this myth coming from?

Rereading my own unfinished texts became more fun, when I started putting in some color.

I seem to be quite simple.

I'm up to my old tricks.

Which is to say, patiently wading through IRC logs and listservs to try to understand how a protocol gets developed (in this case, )

We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!

///

Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.

damaged.bleu255.com

///

Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!

permacomputing.net

///

Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

Usually, app developers choose which push provider they integrate in their apps. But that also means that users have no control through which servers their push notifications go, and the integrated push provider may not work on all devices. Unified Push (UP) solves that by separating the push provider out of apps and letting users choose their own. More information about UP and a list of available providers can be found at unifiedpush.org/

I've used this reflection metaphor before and I think it's spot on. So-called "Artificial Iintelligence" is the result of collective (often unpaid) labor. It's a machine built by many people. The tendency to think of it as some sentient being is pure ideology
