Today's Lunduke's video about privacy was quite controversial. He says that anonymous accounts allows hateful speech. I think it's true. But I don't think that all my data should be public. Sometimes we say or note things to ourselves and we want to keep them due to shame or for security. For example, a psychiatric condition that you have or your credit card number. So in a few words, in my opinion, the amount of privacy depends on the target audience.
My cognition is kind of odd. It's not like AI where they will seek reward. I work AFTER having a reward because I always need to be sure that I will receive it no matter how attached I am to you. And if you yell or laugh at me I will not avoid doing what I'm doing. I will avoid YOU. Is there a name for this? #psychology
I will quit making Overkill because people don't seem to like it. I have another project that I'm making but I'm not sure what to do with it. It's an idea that comes in two forms: the simple one with a server; and another one that extends the idea of #blockchain and #bitcoin. The version with a server is easier to make. I think it can make users happy but I will probably not profit from it. Maybe I should start a Kickstarter campaign.
A contribution that I made about portable builds on the Ada Programming wikibook got approved today.
Please test today's release of Overkill on Windows
A #compiler looks like a one-way function to me -- you translate the code once and you can't translate it back. A high-level language (has abstractions) is translated to a low-level language (very specific to an ISA). Decompilers suck because the computer cannot generalize it back to human language. Maybe something that looks like an intermediate language.
The same for #markup. #Markdown and #HTML for example.
Or maybe something that mixes computer code (e.g. dates) with markup such as a diary.
It really pisses me off when some #wikipedia users remove good content if it does not contain a citation when it is just a google away. In this case I have to undo their undo to place the citation to the obvious statement. I'm not sure if they are worried about removing everything under their sight or if they are just dumb.
