Epistropy is an approach at reusable #notetaking, which builds up a personal #wiki, that can be used for more efficient #knowledge retrieval | #visualization | #creativeThinking | #communication | #learning
with a simple #markup language at it's base ( inspired by #markdown & #latex )
I've had the rough idea for this project ever since I got into philosophy some 15 years ago. During my time studying physics at university the ideas manifested more and more, mainly because of frustration with rehashing the same concepts over and over in every textbook. Actual designing only started 2018
How to avoid an echo chamber.
As great as Mastodon and other open source social media are, is there a danger of the echo chamber effect as would exist on any social media.
As I get used to the conversations in here, I notice that Mastodon seems to attract people with diverse but similar interests that are generally sympathetic to one another: #ecology #tech #trans #art #anarchy #opensource
Is there a danger of exclusivity?
Has anyone written about this?
Curious to hear thoughts..

I know we all heard of the Seti@home shutdown last week, but there is a new viable project. Folding@Home has been around for nearly as long as SETI@Home, but they have turned their efforts toward speeding up research toward treatments to battle COVID-19.
If you have spare cycles, I would ask you to consider spending them here.
Originally I intended to keep it as similar as possible so users can port their markdown notes easily to the format exactly as they are. This feature will be a import function instead.
Some of the problems, that are even present in the #commonmark specification are e.g. handling of whitespace indent with mixing of tabs and whitespace, which could lead to incoherent syntax highlighting

Hi friends! I recently gave a talk aimed at companies that are considering adding #rustlang to their tech stack. In it, I presented the upsides and downsides of Rust, and how it differs from C/C++, Java, Python, and Go. And it's now on YouTube 🍿📽️ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnT-LUQgc7s
You can find the slides at https://jon.thesquareplanet.com/slides/considering-rust/ (or pdf: https://jon.thesquareplanet.com/slides/considering-rust/export.pdf). The last slide (not in the talk) has some links to more on the topic.
So in 2005 i reverse scammed a online scammer. They tried to steal money from my grandmother but luckily didn't get it. I spent the next few weeks utterly destroying the scammer, I have full logs and pictures to show it.
First I convinced him I was a crime lord that lived in the USA and wanted to take him under my wing and teach him how to "really" scam people. This involved a few days of trust building.
Next I got him to take a picture and hold up a sign that said "Mia Azzburn" to prove he trusted me, he did it, lol
Next I convinced him I would try to get him into the mafia but if he wanted me to do that first he would have to do something to win over our god father.. .who happened to have a soft spot for santa clause. So I convinced him to dress up as santa clause and take pictures of it and send it to me so I could give it to our godfather as a "gift" so the god father would accept him into the mafia. He got it wrong but I got him to redo it like 3 or 4 times continually sending new pictures.
It was hilarious and priceless but in the end despite all the hurt he did to others I still kinda felt bad for him, especially after scamming him. So I told him he was just scammed and encouraged him not to do it again. At that point we became friends, I told him my real name, and for years after that I would help him learn programming so he could make a real honest career for himself.
Just looked him up online and he even wound up going to university, got a degree, and lives a seemingly honest life now. I'm happy for him. But man I still LOL at this.
Remember kids, making your software efficient so it doesnt need to run on expensive hardware makes you a fascist Nazi!
A public service announcement, to clarify once again that "Public" posts, are, as the name implies, "Public".
As in, people can see them. Anyone, from anywhere. Dooh, if you don't like that idea, Mastodon has a number of Privacy settings for posts that might offer more control if desired.
Noelle has an excellent Guide to Mastodon, and the image on this post is a screencap of the part of it which clarifies this.
RSS feeds are created by default for everyone's Public and Unlisted posts. The noise some people were making about the Misskey feature, now present here at Qoto.org, which allows easily subscribing to anyone's public and unlisted posts is just the same as using an RSS feed reader to subscribe to that user's RSS feed.
Disinformation, paranoia and rancour have caused some to de-federate with Qoto.
Maybe it's for the best, if they are that obtuse.
I don’t post like I used to because the responses from men have become unbearable. The gamut of creepy, condescending or copycat. They do it in person at conferences too, which makes me think twice about speaking. (And I witness this being far worse for women less white than me.)
kennt jemand für #Linux (wird vermutlich ne Debian based Distro) ein Tool mit dem ich Nutzungszeiten für einen Benutzeraccount im Allgemeinen einstellen kann, nach dem Motto 'Zeit X unter der Woche und Zeit Y am Wochenende, wann die Zeit genutzt wird ist egal, aber sobald die Zeit aufgebraucht ist, ist z.B. kein Anmelden mehr möglich'?
correction: only the sublice patterns will be in 1.42.0
the rest needs to be stabilized for a future release
