Our new album is finally finished!

With us, you can journey through a fogscape of shifting modal textures punctuated with melodies that transform though myriad hues until you reach ultimate oblivion.

Fun, right?

I hope you enjoy!

Deepfake algorithms can now take a single photo of you and animate it to make you say anything. The thought occurs, why are we doing this? What are the possible positive results of this research and technology? Or are we just doing it to see if we can?

Knowledge Futures Group: An interview with Amy Brand, Director of the MIT Press
– The Scholarly Kitchen

"The knowledge creation enterprise – and its ability to stimulate progress in all areas of human endeavor – depends in no small part on how effectively universities and other mission-driven organizations can hasten access to trustworthy information and underlying technologies."

Hey #Ruby devs, if you're looking to help out the #fediverse, check out #prismo! It's a link sharing platform, similar to or hacker news, that federates over #ActivityPub.

The lead (and only) dev has to back off development for a while, but it would be great to spin up a team that could pick up the slack and keep the project moving.

You can find the repo here:

Someone hacked Radiohead and stole 18 minidiscs' worth of demos and random recordings, then ransomed them for 150,000 £. Radiohead, being classy folks, released the recordings to the world for 18 £ a pop with all proceeds going to the Extinction Rebellion.

So if you want 18 hours of random Radiohead recordings including a few "Holy Grail" demos and unreleased tracks... get on this:

- Spend half the time you use learning Yet Another Technology to educate yourself about race, gender and class struggles (historical and present).

- Pipe down and listen to others when it comes to discussions about what is needed in software.

- Don't 'scratch your own itch' - serve a community. If you're white, male and technically proficient you've got enough privilege in the bank to pay it back building for others rather than yourself.

Hello Fediverse. My article,
"Dying Well in the Anthropocene: On the End Of Archivists," posted today. I'm proud of the work that went into it. Will people like it? I don't know. It will make some folks nod and other folks frown. Either way, it's out in the world now. 🌲🌲🌲

Cold take:
If politicians say they're "being realistic", shouldn't they be realistic and say they're "uninspired cowards" instead? 🤔

today's is for Santa Fe Dreamer's Project's campaign "Trans Chicas of Cibola Fund", to get trans women seeking asylum out of prison.
Thanks @jennie for sharing.

I need to find a trans community in NW Florida. I feel like I'm slowly falling to pieces, unable to present as male. If you're in the area, especially the Bay County area, can you please get in touch with me?

If you're not, can you please boost this so that area residents can see this?

I'm only realising now that is a huge "free speech" thing, with people moving there because others haven't allowed them to be bigots elsewhere. The flagging feature is only for copyright infringement: there is not community moderation whatsoever. Imagine when comments arrive. I guess just like with other protocols like ActivityPub, we need to build friendly communities where people are safe, and block the nasty communities into oblivion.

who else here goes to a new website and the first thing they do is scroll to the bottom to check if it's open source and therefore worthy of their attention?
