A slightly megalomaniacal computer enthusiast.

So... what *is* "Mastodon" and "the Fediverse"? See my website for an intro!

I am largely fine with boosting posts from people I disagree with even on significant, dividing issues. I usually don't, however, if they actively advocate for these ideas... so it goes :(

Is the real threat of AI not that it will become superintelligent, but that we'll become dependent on it and become superdumb?

Random first trial post: today, March 14th, is the 29th anniversary of the Linux 1.0 announcement.

Of course, there are other arguably more important dates in Linux history, but this is one of them.

With the return of Emotet, people should be on the lookout for malicious emails, even if they appear to come from trusted sources, call the target by name, and include previously sent and received emails.

I miss the time where no one branded themselves on the internet.

When people were just their goofy selves and didn’t take everything so seriously.

When social media was a public square and not pay-to-play arena.

When it paid to be human rather than some marketed version of human.

But everyone I’ve seen do this gets pushed out.

Because that sort of content doesn’t pay and money runs the world… maybe mastodon can evade this 🤞
