it just occurred to me that the one (1) ethics class i was required to take in engineering school focused on the ethics of not making mistakes (eg Therac-25, Chernobyl)

i don’t remember learning about the ethics of refusing to build things that are fundamentally bad

I have a 24” 1080p LED monitor I would like to gift to someone in Berlin who needs it but can’t afford one.

RT appreciated

This US/remote job at Apple is the opportunity of a lifetime.

It's my old role that I'll sadly be leaving after 6+ years, but I promise you that you'll be working on some of the most high impact stuff you could imagine with a team I treasure.

For the price of a “smartphone-enabled” Profoto B10 Plus (more than $2,000) you could buy a decent DSLR, a couple of lenses and a very capable 2-speedlight studio kit with remotes, stands and light modifiers. 🤷‍♂️

EMPLOYEES: "But rather than qutting, isn't it better to stay and change things from the inside?"

EMPLOYERS: "We're going to need you to stop trying to change things from the inside now."

One thing that was poorly considered at the dawn of the World Wide Web is how lucrative seemingly objective user generated content would be for businesses. From paying $6 per Amazon review to influencers on IG making millions and now tourism being boosted by Wikipedia edits.

Nice to see this. Let's hope Apple follows Microsoft and starts to chip in on the development costs as well.

Wow, Apple seems to be all-in on Rust for low-level programming:

"Following a very successful first foray into Rust we are migrating an established codebase from C to Rust, and building new functionality primarily in Rust."

Watch @fasterthanlime go down the Linux / Wayland rabbit hole. Nobody does it better than him.

Okay, I'm going to livetweet trying to fix my Linux graphics issues - I'll use the hashtag so you can just mute that if you don't want to be spammed.

today I learned ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) embeds a LISP, because of course it does

Oh yeah the Tuxedo models look good, unfortunately they’re not shippable before end of October :(

Help me pick a decent : 13-14”, AMD preferred, as light as possible, good keyboard, good support (with the latest kernel).

Toss up between Lenovo T14s AMD (new) and something like a T460 (older, better compatibility,
much cheaper docking station).

Am I missing something? I’ll exclude Dell XPS models because of coil whine issues.

I don't think anyone from Lenovo or Dell ever tried to buy a laptop from their own website.

Was Radfahren in Berlin in den letzten Monaten etwas angenehmer gemacht hat: verbreiterte (Pop-Up) Radwege.

Die müssen nun wohl wieder weg -_-
