sleep science Show more
Talking about doctors, never trust a sleep-deprived doctor to diagnose you or operate on you.
A doctor who's been awake for 22 hours has their performance impaired to the same level of someone being legally drunk
The lack of sleep on a societal level is an _epidemic_, resulting in so many negative effects that I had to compress and simplify a lot even in this long tootchain. If you'd like to boost this thread, boost the last one though so it correctly propagates please.
Anyone in North- or South-America reading this: would you be willing to help the #openstreetmap project by hosting a server?
The project needs additional "tile delivery servers" in the region to cope with the load, more details on the requirements here:
Are you interested in how to bring secure, private, peer-to-peer distributable content to the fediverse that can survive nodes going down? I've finished writing the documentation for the #Spritely Golem demo which explains how to do just that: https://gitlab.com/spritely/golem/blob/master/README.org
It also includes a running, workable demo which you can try yourself. Please do and let me know your thoughts!
It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.
You don't have a "brand" – you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" – you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.
There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.
You're so much more than that. 💚
you know, one thing that's so weird to explain to people about being poor is how amazing it is to just have a thing that works. see, when you're poor, if something breaks it's not like you can afford to have it fixed or, god forbid, actually go and buy a new one. you just make do, and make do, and make do, until literally it becomes impossible to use any more and you're forced to buy a new one. you just get in this mindset of making do, of why this doesn't work properly, why you have to jigger the handle of that to get it to work in the right way, oh yeah sorry about that you have to turn it off and on 3 times before it works.
whenever I go to my rich ass fuckface family in Cornwall it's like... everything just works. they have money, and when shit breaks they simply just replace it, which is just such an insane idea to me

ableist language all over the fediverse Show more
There is this overwhelming presence of terms like "homophobia".
We had discussions about how prejudice and hate have nothing to do with actual phobias and many people who deal with real phobias don't want their fears and mental health stuff associated with being just hateful assholes.
But nobody cares and the few people trying to talk about it on here just gave up. Because it's exhausting.
But -phobia is still in all the queer spaces and it really sucks.
Scared Silicon Valley billionaire:
Look, you're just not grasping the scale of the AI threat. What if an AI one day is built that decides to harvest large chunks of the Earth's biosphere in order to make some numbers in a financial engine go up slightly? What would we all do then?
Climate change and species loss researchers:
Really? That's a thing that could happen? And people might not believe the predictions? Do go on.
Well OBVIOUSLY I don't mean it's happening NOW
Opinion: Streaming services are a mistake from an environmental perspective.
Movies should be distributed over the Internet more like broadcast TV and/or video stores + sneakernet. That'd make more efficient use of bandwidth where it most counts.
With the latter traversing fewer hops, and implemented in tech like BitTorrent.
(And yes, I have no doubt Netflix et al does minimize the bandwidth they use. I just doubt they can go far enough)
@charlag this is especially true on mobile where the screen is presented to the user as individual objects instead of lines of text. I really love emoji and all of these other special symbols (they are much better than images that don’t have alt text) but if you use them too much screen readers can go a bit crazy.
