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.

In-reply-to » Decentralized Social Media Project Nostr's Damus Gets Listed On Apple App Store Nostr, a startup decentralized social network, got its Twitter-like Damus application listed on Apple's App Store. CoinDesk reports: Nostr is an open protocol that aims to create a censorship-resistant global social network. Media commentators have described it as a possible alternative to Elon Musk's Twitter. Accordi ... ⌘ Read more

@prologic anybody can run a relay. I briefly ran one today. There are hundreds out there.

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

@axodys@octobloc.xyz I found it, but also found it to be lame, and uninteresting. I am not going to get rid of my private/public keys, and probably will not uninstall the app quite yet, but unless something changes radically I don’t see me using it much, if at all.

In-reply-to » I am still trying it, but I have to say—so far—nostr is a royal, and absolute, mess. As expected crypto bros everywhere, but also porn, all scams you can imagine, and more.

I bet I can find uses for it, but do I really want to? Say, I setup my own closed relay, and share it with family and friends. It all comes down to the quality of the client then.

In-reply-to » Damus is pretty interesting, but the global feed is already quite the hellscape. I have yet to see anyone that I know from other forms of social media and signal to noise is quite low so far.

@axodys@octobloc.xyz add me! :-)

In-reply-to » @marado please give us a heads up if you are linking to Twitter. On mobile I have no way to know, and I am trying my best to avoid that hellhole.

@prologic@we.loveprivacy.club it is. I could opt for not following any link, but that would hamper interaction, and camaraderie. Out of politeness, I would like to know if a link I can’t see goes to Twitter, so that I can avoid it.

In-reply-to » I posted up a new discussion about the current filter menu on mobile. Keen to hear everyone's thoughts and even further suggestions :)

@screem I am the wrong one to chime on this, as I don’t use them. The only reason I am replying here is because I find they take too much space, and are distracting as well.

I think your approach is better than current. Add some padding to the left (when filters are visible), and tone down that fly in/out that will make me dizzy, and you got yourself a winner!

In-reply-to » They say AI is now filling up the content of the Internet with gaslighting posts from humans who do not exist and tweets from machines who make up stuff. Nowadays we discuss things with bots, not humans.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci they are saving the username, just in case. If twtxt.net becomes popular, they could sell them for some coins (virtual coins, that is). 😂

In-reply-to » @eldersnake that's the only thing I can think of -- which we do on the backend anyway for our server-side-rendered web app (SSR)

@prologic ooooh! I see! I didn’t know you were using the mobile app, otherwise I wouldn’t have asked. I though there was a problem on the web interface (JS, or something related). By using the “old” addressing style, it simply randomises amongst the many similarly named, but different TLDs followings you have, right?
