To anyone thinking about joining BlueSky, especially artists: everything you post is sent to a third party for AI labeling.

BlueSky uses AI to label content for moderation, and to do that they use a company called thehive.ai. If you look through their privacy policy, you will see that they can use content sent to them to train models for all their services, which include generative AI for both text and images.

Update: meow.social/@FluffyDeveloper/1

@noiob, could you bring a bit of actual privacy? The last one I tried was a corporate lie... :p

@Azure OwO I'm not the only one being reset to en-US every time I yay

@nliz I may be suspect to say anything on the matter by being one of the early adopters of the thing, but I prefer the quick gestures that resembles the animation it triggers over the virtual buttons.

@Tathar you've got my morbid curiosity at 2:20 AM. Why can't you sleep and why the "especially for therians"?

@noiob filled and sent. Is something else needed?

@noiob could this instance federate with floofy.tech? I want to follow @kakious@floofy.tech and @arch@floofy.tech over there

@Azure because some people were indoctrinated to believe people are worth as a living being the number that's written in their paycheck. As there's a wage gap between white and blue collar workers, white collar workers usually behave like an ideological reserve in protection of capitalism, which also blinds them from seeing themselves as workers who depend on an income to continue existing.

However that's hard while "unionizing", "worker class", etc. are taken as bad words.

@Azure I guess engagement always was measured by screen time, and/or amount of "content" scrolled by. It's a measurement of how much ads users will see. By maximizing such measure, you optimize a source of income. It was never a true form of "engagement", but it resembled a primitive form of "engagement" with the platform. Continuing to call it that way was a mistake.

Why are people still called "content creator" and not "entertainer of audiences"? Couldn't it be updated?

@glitch on an API context, if you return 302 Found outright, the browser might follow the redirect and return the content of the 2xx response to the "happy path" of the JS application, which might not help to set URLs and other miscellaneous stuff relevant for custom-written Client Rendered Applications.

vent: #NotEnoguhRAM & ads 

LTT recently launched a video on avoiding 8GB or RAM and going straight 16GB as the new minimum or even 32GB.


What are we doing with so much RAM? The same things as before, but with increasingly fancier webviews instead of native UI elements? Custom proprietary UI language that matches nothing in the system? An unified unblockable ad-viewing framework?

Are we paying better computers so we can see increasingly complex digital pamphlets?

I wonder how some people who use light themes everywhere on their computers with factory-set brightness and don't get headaches.

I get headaches if I don't set a theme or use a plugin to generate dark themes for every site I visit.

I get headaches if I don't bring the brightness on my monitor down to zero percent.

How other people simply don't get it?

@noiob it's that twitter-like app from India in which the icon is a yellow bird. It's less mature than mastodon but has an endless feed algorithm so people can never stop scrolling "interesting stuff" even after their friends have no more "content" from them to "consume". (or that's what I understood from it)

@noiob speaking of that, do you have tips on how to bring friends over to the fediverse, instead of going to single-website platforms like cohost of that koo app due to their popularity?

There was a memory exception in Wing Commander on exit, because of the deadline they left it but change the error message to "Thank you for playing Wing Commander!" #gamedev

@typhlosion @byte
About UI, I'd avoid web browser engines as hard as I can. DIY IoT projects that relies on a ESP32 wouldn't be able to use them. Wouldn't use especially after doing accessibility checks for web pages. But GUIs are needed to exist.

All that said, I hope that the project becomes easier to build applications than playing an API deployment provider such as Heroku or Render, and looks better than electron, so people have an actual place to move out from the commercial web.

@typhlosion @byte [+] If everything was already precalculated in a middleware-provided materialized view, the data conversion problem would be solved.

About patching and running code, that's a complex matter. I hope that representing code in an intermediate ontological representation allows me to run stuff together despite programming languages. The hard part will be tracking conflicting contributions (such as deep refactorings) together.
