So we still have about 10 more 100% remote positions to hire for full-time market-fair positions here at QOTO/CleverThis.

100% remote, work from anywhere, even the beach, market-fair offers. Ethics first, we treat our people like family.

We have an urgent need for Machine learning experts with a background in NLP and Deep Learning (Natural Language Processing and Neural Networks). There is a focus on Knowledge Graphs, Mathematics, Java, C, looking for Polyglots.

We are an open-source first company, we give back heavily to the OSS community.

We need everything from jr to sr, data scientist to programmer. If your IT and your good, you might be a fit.

I will personally be both your direct boss, and hiring manager. I am also the founder and inventor.

The NLP position can be found at this link, other positions can be found on the menu bar on the left:


If you would like to submit yourself for an interview, which for a limited time I am guaranteeing you will get a first stage interview, then you can submit your application here, and even schedule your interview as you apply, instantly!


For those of you who cant schedule during core hours you can schedule in my free time if you’d like a chance (the company doesnt have fixed hours):


@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@mc It is a nice perk :)

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@L29Ah indeed we have military grade security procedures, hardware crypto keys, locked down laptops, etc. Certainly more security than is typically needed.

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@freeschool great the link to schedule one is in the post. Any open slot shoukd be fine

There are plenty of politicians and CEOs in the world whose pronouncements could be replaced by AI and no one would know the difference. Gibberish sounds the same no matter what the source.

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@timo21 Honestly the hard part would be getting an AI to actually sound senile/moronic enough to emulate Biden or Trump. Its almost an art form with them.

What an impressive weekend, where people living in the northern hemisphere saw spectacular multicolored auroras dancing in the sky, while people believing in the flat earth theory could of course see auroras everywhere on the totally flat earth.

No doubt.

@internic @peterdrake @MichaelPorter @arstechnica

We have the 5th and final uograde being tested in beta as we speak. So they shoukd be rolling out on production literally any day now.

I also have a member working on better ststus updates from our team to keep people better informed.

"You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."

Who the fuck is trying to catch flies?

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@LouisIngenthron the people who dont want them flying around your food?

@freemo@qoto.org avatar


Not sure what you mean, catch is typically used to refer to lethal traps.

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@LouisIngenthron it may be a euphemis but it is the language you use. "I put out a fly trap to catch flys" i cant imagine anyone thinking this means anything other than an undesirable insect.

I suspect i might have Multiple Schlorosis in its very early stages. Among other minor symptoms the most telling is my tendency to get muscle twitches that are rhythemic in very odd muscle groups. When this happens it sticks to a particular muscle group in a reptative way for weeks or months.

Here is a video of my chin twitching as an example.


@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@icedquinn i have always had potassium and magnesium problems. Thry are well supplemented though there may be an underlying issue.

Keep in mind though twitching a d cramps are very different.

ActivityPub software should also have a Visibility option for Following (People that you follow) like in Instagram instead of just Follower. Sometimes we just want to share to the trusted inner circle that we have instead to all the followers

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@sandycorzeta It already has that, we can set visibility of our followers so long as your server supports it.

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@sandycorzeta We have that feature on QOTO (it is less common). It is called subscribe (a hidden follow).

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@sandycorzeta it is standard in activity pub. Its just that moat servers dont give you the option because a bunch of trolls make threats to any server that implements it.

Apache RTOS in Flat Mode runs NuttX Apps that are Statically Linked (kinda like an octopus?)

@lupyuen Are those supposed to look like 4 little sperms depicting a product called NuttX or am I just crazy?

Everyone in Alaska has enjoyed a Universal Basic Income for over 40 years for just breathing in Alaska. Has it harmed them? No. Employment increased. Inflation slowed. Poverty went down. Obesity went down. Child abuse went down.

They basically used Thomas Paine's argument.

It changes from year to year. Its a dividend based on the success of the fund.

Strictly speaking it isnt a UBI but in practice it is similar.


@freemo@qoto.org avatar


Data scie tist here. None of those things have any reason to suspect they are connected to the fund. In fact studies trying to show some overall benefit have been quite weak to come up with any. IMO the harm, while hard to quantify, significantly outweighs the good, that thats another matter.

To update you and eveyone interested. We have 4 out of 5 of the versions tested on beta. The last one is where we expect some problems. If so we will apply 4 out of 5 and work on the 5th. Otherwise we might have all 5 updates applied to production soon. The first 4 succeeded which is a nice first step!

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@peterdrake Several of the updates along the way were applied already ficing compatibility with several clients and other issues. The bigger one with many of thr new features you can follow thebprogress on the gitlab. Let me checknon where there at with timeline on that I know its fairly close.

freemo, to Guns
@freemo@qoto.org avatar

Today is the anniversary of the Kent State shootings, or more appropriately the "May 4th Massacre". In the wake of recent events and our consideration of gun control laws I think this day deserves a great deal of reflection. Four Americans were murdered, and nine more wounded, by our own national guard simply for participating in an anti-war demonstration. If we want to consider limiting access to guns on american soil lets start with our own national guard and police, not our citizens. The last thing I want to see is an unarmed populace needing to deal with a well-armed police and military force. Lets focus on securing the rights of the citizen, not giving them up

@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@FatherEnoch doesnt make sensr on a few accounts.

For starters the issue isnt with police being heavily armed it is with them not being held accountable then they use it. Them like thr citizens can and shouod be as heavily armed as they wish as long as they are responsible and accountable to their actions.

Second, the disparity in armament seems to occur in coubtries with strict gun laws to a greater extent not lesser. I the usa for example police and citizens are fairly equally armed, in the UK however certain police are allowed to be armed while the citizenry in general more or less cant be, showing a greater, not lesser, disparity.
