C'est vrai quoi, on sait jamais pourquoi les bébés ça pleure.

Alors pourquoi pas logger tout ce qu'ils disent et faire du machine learning dessus ?

C'est pas du tout gênant ! Si? Meuh non.


I read a lot of tech BS, pretty much professionally, but it never ceases to terrify me how easily the biggest challenges our world is facing right now are reframed as (economic) opportunities.

It just makes my gut "people are dying, the planet is on fire and you are trying to SELL more STUFF??".

There is probably some nuance to be found there, but I find it hard not to get upset.

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

Oh wow. So that really famous centralized vs decentralized vs distributed diagram that I quote above? Well, in one of the companion papers, Baran provides this iteration on it, which in my opinion is far superior and I'm going to start using in my presentations.

Le remplacement de la PNIJ annoncé pour 2024.

La PNIJ aura été un scandale permanent (locaux privés, défauts de fonctionnement, coûts) et une démonstration supplémentaire de l'incompétence technique de la startup nation à fabriquer du logiciel après Louvois, Chorus ou Sirhen.
