@douginamug Currently machines are inferior to humans in terms of general intelligence and they are not independent; they need humans in particular to decide what activities they will be allocated to.
With the rise of superintelligence it may happen that machines will be able to practically act as independent market actors.
The threat of #superintelligence, described in Nick Bostrom’s book, poses a challenge to capitalistic thought which doesn’t seem to be widely recognized nowadays. What if machines become significantly more productive than humans in the vast majority of activities?
It is now much easier to run an #Ercoin node for testing purposes, as:
• It doesn’t need #IPFS anymore. IPFS is an interesting technology, but it still seems to have issues with consuming too much resources: https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/issues/1482 , which makes running it on a non-dedicated hardware problematic.
• #Docker Compose can be used to start both ABCI server (written in Erlang) and ABCI client (Tendermint): https://gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin/blob/b8a31c2fda5b05050b661a288e6b91a331adcb33/README.md#docker-integration
Working with #ClojureScript + #React is much pleasure, in particular because it allows programmer to not worry about synchronizing UI changes with state changes. I’m not aware of an analogous, well-document toolkit for desktop.
@rysiek @m4sk1n @RafiX Ja nie widzę klarownych powodów językowych, dla których miałoby być coś nie tak z „polszczyzną”. Co więcej, powołując się na słownik Doroszewskiego można by argumentować, że „polszczyzna” jest tu bardziej pożądana, o czym napisałem właśnie na GitHubie: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/6918#issuecomment-383548285
I played violent video games since I was a little kid. Mortal Kombat, Carmageddon, GTA, Blood, Soldier of Fortune - you name it, I played it.
Never felt aggressive after doing that, don't ban violent video games.
How #Uber has lost a customer:
I’ve received a renewed debit card and wanted to update it in the application. It hasn’t allowed me to remove the old card (despite it had already expired) because of it being the only payment method. I’ve then tried to add the new card first, but… the application has prohibited this because the new card has the same number as the old one.
For some time I’ve been using #Taxify then (if available in a particular city).
@HerraBRE Perhaps allowing #Mastodon to run under custom domains can be good enough to give people control over their identities. You can then either have your private domain point to an arbitrary server or become @firstname.lastname@example.org if virtualinstance.tld wishes to provide custom DNS record for each user.
#Google removes #Kodi from search autocomplete in anti-piracy effort - the article state "But, while Kodi is legal software, it remains a space that enables piracy, akin to platforms like BitTorrent."... Yes, like any general purpose computer. 🙄 https://www.theverge.com/2018/3/29/17176894/google-removes-kodi-search-autocomplete-anti-piracy
I enjoy using #BSD's because they are well crafted, documented, and are licensed under terms I actually understand.
I'm a lecturer in computer science at a university of applied science where I teach a broad range of topics from programming to networking to artificial intelligence.
Remnants of #DRM are being removed from Polish ebook market. The last big bookstore removes all DRM-protected #ebooks from its offer, describing this technology as cumbersome. If a publisher insists on using DRM, then its books will not be sold at all.
@tomas I bet that it won’t be closed anytime soon, as interaction over RPC is like interaction with a black box or like ordinary spoken communication. How the response and request are generated is internal to the server and client, respectfully. Parties can even be humans manufacturing requests/responses “manually”.
