yes, and then the human beings who created the prompt will use their human discernment to decide if it’s worth sharing with other humans, who will then use their human judgement to approve or disapprove, remix or re-share it.

There’s a little old lady near where I used to live who drives up and down the country roads in her government-provided electric wheelchair every day. Everyone knows her.

On the one hand I think, “you go, girl!” but on the other hand, I feel like her life would be a lot easier if this town were more walkable/bikeable. She can’t walk to ride a bike but what a great benefit it would be for her to live in a place like that.

What percentage of reddit is already AI garbage?

Did you really think that they could somehow send you the zero required file instantaneously?

Sounds like transporting a minor across state lines

“Yes, I see on your tax forms that you have claimed 1034 dependents, which means that the state actually owes YOU. Here is your big bag of money sir.”

Yes. If you do a search on this site for posts about google, you’ll find multiple threads about this. Basically it seems that google is losing the arms race against SEO, and new LLM bots are mostly responsible.

Yes, there’s a great article I read a while back about how and why recipe web sites became so bad and frustrating. Basically, a good website would show you the recipe, you would read it and leave. However, since you didn’t spend much time on the site, google would rank it much lower.

On the other hand, if you encountered a long rambling story that you had to read through and scroll through ads, before getting to the useful information, then google would rank the site higher because you spent more time on it. That’s why there are so many memes about how bad recipe website are.

And of course, even before LLMs, it was trivial to implement a copy paste bot to create a massive number of web sites.

Starting from zero

I’m interested in exploring the world of self hosting, but most of the information that I find is incredibly detailed and specific, such as what type of CPU performs better, etc. What I’m really looking for is an extremely basic square 1 guide. I know basically nothing about networking, I don’t really know any coding, but...

That’s a recommendation that I’ve seen a couple of times, and it looks promising. However I haven’t found any guide that really explains how to do it step by step, or what factors I should consider, or even really what I need to be able to do it. Do you know if there is such a guide for someone who really isn’t a “computer guy?”

A: I found what looks like a pretty good guide here piped.video/watch?v=xBIowQ0WaR8

It covers setting up a virtual server on AWS, as well as Setting up a Linux server with Docker and FileCloud or Netxcloud. It discusses some of the pros and cons of each. The only coding involved here is some copying and pasting json files, which is pretty beginner friendly if you ask me.

What you you folks here think? Is this a reasonable guide? Do you see any red flags or major oversights that beginner should know?

Can someone explain to me what any of those words mean? And maybe even that combination of them together?

I read the article for you and yes, it is in fact money. Also it’s a tiny bit of cowardice and lies, but mostly it’s money.

According to “the gray zone?” Sure cheif.

BMG has said it’s false. More than a dozen of the largest Jewish organizations around the world called attention to his insensitive acts (such as wearing a Nazi uniform on stage).

The gray zone is characterized by Wikipedia as "misleading reporting, and sympathetic coverage of authoritarian regimes.” It regularly shills for Putin and Trump. They run cover for human rights violations in China, Iran, Sudan, Syria, etc.

My question as a total luddite is whether or not it will be possible for Chromium based browsers to maintain a version without this. I use Firefox on all my devices so it’s not an issue, but I’m curious about other popular browsers, especially those like DDG or brave that emphasize privacy.

So this means that the internet could have always worked fine without invasive cookies and everything they told us about it being impossible was just a lie.

Like how “antifa” did Jan 6? It’s just every person who got caught and put on trial was the MAGA exception they “tricked” into the insurrection.

For me it’s a privacy matter. Going through old posts (whether human or machine learning) can nor be used for anything good.

This is exactly why we should be encouraging local libraries, universities, law enforcement, city, and county governments how to set up Mastodon servers.

On the one hand, when you have a duty to inform the public, it no longer makes sense to suffer at the whims of tech billionaires. There was a time, for a decade or two, when these sites prioritized access and predictability, but no more. When you have information that you need to have accessible, the only guarantee is to control it yourself. They can still use corporate social media to get the message out to their network, but link it back to their mastodon account. Roll it into their IT departments just like their email server.

On the other hand, it’s a critical step for the success of the fediverse. Universal email adoption came about because it was used by government and universities. What you could call the original social network is still an open protocol, it’s not owned by any single corporation or government, and still the primary form of communication online. About 2 billion emails have been sent since you started reading this.
