This is a next-level anti-GDPR dark pattern from Forbes.

I selected that I only wanted the “required cookies” (no cookies should be required to read a text article.) “This may take up to a few minutes to process.” 🤔

Insomnia is such a stupid thing to have to wrestle with.

Getting ready for bed, I can't stop yawning and struggle to keep my eyes open.

Minute my head hits the pillow, my brain goes into overdrive.

I don't understand why people are surprised by this. AIs are written by people with bias, tested by people with bias, and trained on data sets that contain biases. Why are we shocked that the AIs end up biased? Seems a foregone conclusion to me until we can figure out a better way for them to work.

(continued)re: learning to program as a student:

-Stop comparing your learning progress to others.. it's not a race. There will always be someone better and more knowledgeable than you especially when it comes to specialised interests.
-do take a moment to celebrate the small wins, e.g. "look how far I've come since the start of the year!"
-encourage others with their learning progress too.
-avoid coders who are arseholes to newbies
-find role models/mentor other students/join study groups.

In the twenty-first century censorship works by flooding people with irrelevant information. We just don't know what to pay attention to, and often spend our time investigating and debating side issues. In ancient times having power meant having access to data. Today having power means knowing what to ignore.
