@bender@twtxt.net cool I poked my nose into that

In-reply-to » 🤔 "Could a large language model be #conscious?" (by David J. Chalmers): https://philpapers.org/rec/CHACAL-3

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci it will be nice to be able to read in what context Weizenbaum wrote that. It comes from an article he wrote, “Social and Political Impact of the Long-term History of computing”, which I haven’t been able to find without selling my soul. I understand you are a scholar; could you “lend” us the article? PDF is fine. :-)

In-reply-to » Norway is buying 54 new tanks. Sweet upgrade. All though the current war is a distance from Norway - it's still our neighbour who is causing it. So it's always in the back of my mind.

@stigatle@yarn.stigatle.no I hear you. As always, hope for the best, but prepare for the worse. I am thousands of kilometres away, yet it is also always in the back of my mind.

Yeah the word ‘decentralized’ is sure being a bit bastardized lately…

In-reply-to » What looks to me to be pretty nasty transphobia was posted in the yarn.social IRC channel.

I called it out in channel and took screenshots. Happy to discuss in a less public space with anyone–not going to share that stuff and propagate the harm.

What looks to me to be pretty nasty transphobia was posted in the yarn.social IRC channel.

I’ll go on record unequivocally: transphobia is not OK ever. Transwomen are women, transmen are men, and it’s not in any way funny to pretend otherwise even as a “joke”. It’s hurtful and harmful.

actually from my reading and understanding I think it’s even worse than this.

They claim that the platform runs on a distributed network protocol of relay servers that I believe are managed by Nostr/

so basically, this is very much centralized and you have to place trust in both the app and relay service.

In-reply-to » Damus is an interesting app, but adoption and discovery are big issues right now. Crypto-dross is dominating the global timeline and nothing about the available content is going to be remotely appealing to a typical social media consumer.

And just like that, my affair with nostr is over. :-D
