Re: my Mac Mini post from earlier - I just discovered that the entry level M2 Mini (256gb ssd, 8gb RAM) is just $499 in the Apple education store.
That’s got to be the best price/performance ratio for pure computing power ever.
in a rare move, Apple released a new Mac mini that might be the best overall deal in computing. It's $100 cheaper than the previous model, with new M2 chip, more GPU cores. For $599 you're getting a ludicrous amount of computing power.
Finally playing around with Midjourney, and the reliance on Discord as an interface/platform is breaking my brain a little.
Well, crap. My favorite Mac calendar application (Fantastical) is jacking up its annual subscription, and the features it's "adding" aren't anything I will use. Can't justify supporting a 40% price hike and not using any of the new features.
Guess I'm looking for a new Calendar app now. *sigh*
Is anyone aware of a Chrome extension that would mimic upcoming browser privacy changes (turning off link decoration, obfuscating IP address, killing 3rd party cookies entirely...)?

Man, professional wrestling is wild right now, y’all. The rumor sheets all say that the WWE, the biggest wrestling company in the world, has been sold to the Saudi Arabian government and is being taken private.
The Berkman Klein program fundamentally changed me and my perspective on the world.

For anyone in one of the various information professions, the Earlybird rates for the conference that I Chair (NISO Plus) run out January 9th! Take a look, there's likely to be something interesting to you! Metadata, DEIA issues, identifiers, open access policy issues, and lots more!
Watching the various corners of the world I'm affiliated with (Higher Ed, publishing, research, libraries) grapple with AI/ML is both frustrating and amusing.
After just a bit of struggling to sort out the appropriate VirtualHost incantations, I've finally got all of NISO's legacy domains updated and pointing at shiny new updated servers, complete with Lets Encrypt and certbot active.
