Someone broke into my flat last night while I was sleeping. I awoke from small noises followed by a loud crash. Only got out of bed when my nextdoor neighbour who had heard them run and found my door ajar and rang my bell.
They took some 12+ laptops; old thinkpads, macppc G4s, various laptops I had used for tinkering with OpenBSD. Which they probably dropped down the stairs while I heard the crash 🙄
I've never locked my door at night; worst part is having to consider doing so now...
I'd be happy with them being in my favor like, ever, just once
horrible people don't stand out if they're smart tho
capable manipulators and abusers can game and win the system despite not actually being great at the "meritocracy" that supposedly helps the kind and never helps the cruel
cruelty = profit, sometimes
but some people just like hurting others they perceive to be "needing punishment", and are willing to engage kind endeavors to meet those cruel ends
(which is kind of the entire human problem in a nutshell, IMO)
The algo pegged you as a possible fence-sitter on horrible shit. It probably did that to hundreds of thousands of people the same day it classified you that way, and most of them probably just went, "oh, time to be more racist, it's in" subconsciously.
Congrats for noticing -- seriously.
People don't watch out for this stuff enough.
unlike when one's too busy being useful to bother waiting ;)
we need apprentices and guilds Show more
groups where we have new learners doing their best means we get to show them how it works contextually again and again until they can use the knowledge or until they (or the group) accept that it's not gonna work for that part
and it means learning from a person, which is what some people actually need, even if a lot of techfolk don't
a flotilla of guilds of techs building amazing stuff, collaborating on even more amazing stuff, connected and creating more techs
just another hacker chick
