#ShowerThoughts: one simple way to reduce the flood of #eWaste would be to say to vendors, you can't sell new computers (including anything that runs an OS) in our country without a 10 year full replacement guarantee, or more. That way hardware companies would have an incentive to make devices that last, and provide at least 10 years of software updates.

Imagine just scanning your furniture then being able to virtually rearrange it so you can try different layouts for your rooms without actually moving things around.

These Deep Fakes are getting alarmingly good. This one is just for fun, but I worry about the time they're being used for more nefarious purposes.

How could I make them understand that? What kind of analogy could I use to make them relate?

Recruiter: "So, if your dream job implies working on Windows ... ?"

Me: "That'd be a dilemma."

What I meant by that was ofc a big "No." 'cause if it implies working on Windows it can't possibly be my dream job.

Thoughtful analysis of 's lust for :

"Microsoft is one of the biggest contributors to open source project on GitHub (platform now owned by Microsoft). But if you look at their projects, you’ll notice that almost all of the Microsoft’s open source products are aimed at programmers and software developers.

This is not love, Microsoft and Linux. This is merely a relationship of convenience."

Money is an abstraction to represent value. It's not a good abstraction, but it persists because the global economy is in a local minimum because the disadvantages of sharing information outweigh the advantages. An economy with sufficient incentives for economic agents to communicate their values directly without the abstraction layer would be more efficient, assuming the existence of an agreeable language for that communication

I could tag someone to provide details about valueflows, which is a grammar for that language, but that's probably more information than you want. The important thing to know is that the benefits of collectives aren't just for adversarial situations where we interface with capitalism. We have a basis for building economic networks that are competitive with capitalist business units comparable in size while being just to labor, community, and the environment

The issue is bringing trust-based networks up to scale with multinational corporations. This can happen, but folks are still working on the software support

My interest is in using games to replace discourse an evidence-based approach to economic, social, and political theory
