Pinned toot


Hey fediverse, I go by Dobry. I am Incredibly Online™️ and subsist almost entirely on information.

I'm relatively leftist in my politics, a strong believer in equal opportunities first and freedom second. Be prepared for lots of discussion on that front.

Very interested and excited about open and decentralized web infrastructure, please talk to me about this (and other things, but especially this)!

I mostly share content and links I find interesting, but also post my photography, analysis of current events, projects i'm working on, and horrible 3am thoughts that should never leave the confines of my id. Sorry not sorry.

Oh, and I crosspost from other silos, and am planning on automating this to some degree. I know some of you don't like that, so, a warning.

tldr: a study done by a london-based think tank found that very many Huawei employees either previously worked for the chinese military/intelligence complex, or are simultaneously engaged, the implications being that Huawei's claims about not cooperating with chinese intelligence and cyber warfare efforts are unlikely to be true

$0.013 per kWh solar plant in California!!!!

That is cheap. Cheaper than any other form of electrical energy generation.

Almost even cheaper than electricity from an EXISTING hydro dam that has been built and paid for, which is generally considered to be around $0.01 per kWh.

We are on our way #Solarpunk s!

In case it isn't clear, Google has now reached, in many sectors, the "extinguish" phase of "embrace, extend, extinguish".

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
