Would any free and open source software developers here be interested in a free "basics of Rust" online training course? Something like a four hour session on a Saturday or Sunday, or two sessions of two hours, one on Saturday and one the next day.

I do paid training on this, and this would be a way for me to help the FOSS development community, and also get practice, and a bit of advertising.

Respond if you'd join. Boosts welcome.

To everyone in the US who might hopefully be taking to the streets tonight: leave your phone at home.

The metadata is leaks the entire night can get you and your friends imprisoned. It's not worth it. The convenience isn't worth it. Just don't bring it.

Did you ever dream of:

The battles we’re fighting for our privacy aren’t just to make our phones and computers private places today. They’re to keep our homes, cars, and minds private places in the future. They’re to protect our personhood and stave off autocracy.

Ask yourself: what do I ?

🐈 What do I need to comfort myself?
🧘🏽 What do I need to soothe myself?
💪🏼 What do I need to validate myself?
🙅🏽 What do I need to protect myself?
🥗 What do I need to provide for myself?
🚀 What do I need to motivate myself?

Sometimes, it's kinder to *not* be nice! This study shows that can undermine constructive if they give it in a way that's too "agreeable."

It's more to be : tell me how I can improve, so that I can.

Your daily reminder that you don’t have to react to the bullshit of the mainstream.

Act! Set the narrative! Make your own tools – kind, caring, fair, and non-colonial ones – and let those exploitative fuckers be the ones who have to react to that.

(This is a lesson I admit I have to keep relearning but I think I’m getting better at it. Not having the asshole Twitter algorithm riling me up any chance it gets has also helped since I stopped visiting that cesspit.)

Freedom of press.
Freedom of speech.
Freedom of thought.

None of these are possible without privacy.

Yes! Everything we know is just a model. Models are useful for interacting with reality, but they’re (necessarily) only limited representations of reality. That’s why we understand them.

🤯 This part where they say that a “measurement” in quantum mechanics isn’t the same as what we usually describe as a measurement.

🤔 Do y’all think we’ll ever understand reality 100%? I personally think/feel that reality is too complex for us to fully understand. And I like that, as it means we always have something new to learn. But what do y’all think?

Indeed, neither science nor religion ‘really know’ yet. I feel like that’s the most exciting thing about being alive, really!

@thunder 🙏🏼 Thank you for that article! That’s a great historical overview of the controversy and provides some helpful context.

@Crazypedia 😃 Touché 😂

Without getting into an epistemological debate about the meaning of knowledge, it’s clear to me that even the leading experts don’t quite know. And they know that they don’t know, which 😃

Tangentially related, but fun to watch: check out this conversation between two expert physicists on gravity: m.youtube.com/watch?v=QcUey-DV

It’s the fifth conversation that excites me, as they get into the nature of the universe and postulate about how things like consciousness, gravity, and perhaps our 3D perception of the universe may be emergent phenomena, or even an illusion…

💚 Have a wonderful day today!
