the cybersecurity industry is a privacy disaster as you have lots of people with good intentions running around with massive amounts of data they don't own doing crazy and invasive things with it that the data subjects never knew would happen, and the "AI" industry is similar in the sense it's massive amount of data that people didn't give permission around being used to 'produce' artwork, text, source code etc - it's just mass copyright theft basically.

No one ever mentions how the first few seconds of Eye Of The Tiger sounds almost exactly like Another Brick In The Wall, so allow me to save you the embarrassment. It’s a thing.

A #funny thing my spouse told me last night is that she likes to read “AF” on the Internet as “As Foretold”

Th longer I work with #Python, the more convinced I am that Pipenv and Poetry don’t meaningfully improve upon pip-tools.

Does anyone on the Internet like anyone else?

Finding it harder this time around on the #fediverse following folks from certain instances. Seems like some have gone to the extreme of whitelisting instances they’ll federate with, with my single-user instance falling below the radar.

This is my interpretation of the error messages I’m seeing, so I could be wrong.

If I’m right though, it’s a bit frustrating. A lot of the techies here hate that Google and Microsoft make it so hard to self-host email servers. This seems to fall in the same vein? Maybe? I’m not saying that’s the goal here, but it’s at least a side-effect.

Live and let live. I guess I just won’t be able to follow folks from some instances.
