watching germany discover cell broadcasts as if its some sort of technological marvel is simultaneously the funniest and saddest tech-related thing in my recent memory

The no-kink-at-pride debate, like the Lesbian Sex Wars, is a moral panic apparently initiated by progressive, marginalized queers. Like the LSW, its rhetoric is readily adaptable by the right, both in traditional conservative publications and by more chaotic agents like operation pridefall. What worries me is what happens if they start getting traction on Pride boards and proposing legislation.

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

In short, we need to dramatically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.

Computer Science towards sustainable permacomputing
"Unrealistic" "People wont want that" "Too many assumptions about the future"

Computer Science which assumes everyone lives in VR in the future
"Visionary" "Futuristic"

tinfoil hat theory; audacity; nonsense 

the whole audacity fork kerfuffle is just a divide and conquer plan by musescore to make the forking effort unviable

Naming that software Audacity was never just a pun. It was foreshadowing all along

Wenn 130 Tempolimit und keine Kurzstreckenflüge schon Ökodiktatur sind, was sind dann erst Maßnahmen die wirklich was bringen?

life goal: infiltrate some place by saying i'm a pentester and need access to inspect this office's pens

I think the biggest thing that bosses and capitalists can't understand that totally breaks their worldview is the idea that people can and often are self-motivated and want to make something good.

I see this a lot in the game development space where devs run mandatory crunch periods and other terrible things because they can't visualize a world where people work on things they are passionate about.

This assumption that workers are always lazy or aren't motivated to do more than the bare minimum is the greatest lie in our society.
