WHAT PEOPLE THINK ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ARE: wow.... we're creating... new life........

WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)

PSA for fellow men 

Finally fixed the header image on my website (submelon.tech), generally happy with how the edit worked out :blobross: (is my profile pic here too now)

Kinda made me realize that my profile pic on any given social media will always be at least three years old

@Are0h By blocking them, we quite literally lock them into their worst nightmare.

They don't wanna be alone. They need other ideologies, other people to hate on so that they don't have to face the nightmare that is their own ideology.

Because if we treated them the same way they treat us, they'd break in an instant. And they don't wanna have to admit how weak they really are.

Porcupine Tree.

Boost if you agree.

"The police officers wrestled with Colin Cheung in an unmarked car. They needed his face.

"They grabbed his jaw to force his head in front of his iPhone. They slapped his face. They shouted, “Wake up!” They pried open his eyes. It all failed: Mr. Cheung had disabled his phone’s facial-recognition login with a quick button mash as soon as they grabbed him."

I'd like to take another moment and say thank you to folks working hard on PV, KT, and other servers outing these harassers, racists, and/or fascists

it's hard work seeping through garbage, getting targeted, and not having proper modification tools to *actually* suspend/block folks and isntances

Just to be clear, this means that if you’re federated with mastodon.social, you’re federated with gab

whoever keeps raking "log off" into my zen garden, keep at it, your craft is improving

The think is white folks think if they mimic the posture of diversity and inclusion it will happen on its own, which is false. It takes real work.

And you can ask any of my mods who I talk with on a regular basis, that this work will take to you some deep places personally and have you re-evaluate you own personal truths about how you view the world. Those are HARD conversations.

And white people in particular exist in a culture that violently resists personal growth at all costs.

It's inappropriate in a professional email to use casual language, e.g. city nicknames like "Philly." Use the city's full proper name: Philip, Pennsylvania

CTA ATTENTION ALL FEDIVERSE ADMINS: 

Now here's a spicy take. The abundance of autism-diagnosed trans people doesn't mean you have to be afraid you're faking being trans if you're also autistic.

Correlation is not causation. Even if it were, you're still feeling these emotions, and you're ultimately the only reliable source for information on your own identity.

Rock it, and don't let gatekeepers poke holes in your sails.

the heck am I on
