I can't accept that this is where we're now, but at least you can learn a lot about opensource, community, bureaucracy, funding, boardroom drama, conflict of interests and bigtech shills just by reading this.

☢️ What John von Neumann really did at Los Alamos
—3 Quarks Daily

「 Johnny von Neumann was the multifaceted intellectual diamond of the 20th century. He contributed so many seminal ideas to so many fields so quickly that it would be impossible for any one person to summarize, let alone understand them. He may have been the last universalist in mathematics, having almost complete command of both pure and applied mathematics 」

「 The timing of the sighting is particularly significant given recent news that Tesla may have canned its plans for a $25,000 mass-market “Model 2” vehicle. Elon Musk reportedly mothballed the affordable EV in favor of going all in on the company’s plans for a fully autonomous robotaxi 」

🫧 From boom to burst, the AI bubble is only heading in one direction | John Naughton

「 At some stage a bubble gets punctured and a rapid downward curve begins as people frantically try to get out while they can. It’s not clear what will trigger this process in the AI case. It could be that governments eventually tire of having uncontrollable corporate behemoths running loose with investors’ money. Or that shareholders come to the same conclusion 」

:birdsite: Molusko is gonna start charging new users. Charging old users for reach didn't stop the bot farms, it made it worse.

Bots are most of the premium users. And probably are the new "users" he's trying to milk.

The world's richest man is fighting over pennies, something is up.

That platform is dying. Genuine new users are fleeing anywhere

⚛️ The Quest to Map the Inside of the Proton | WIRED

「 Physicists have begun to explore the proton as if it were a subatomic planet. Cutaway maps display newfound details of the particle’s interior. The proton’s core features pressures more intense than in any other known form of matter. Halfway to the surface, clashing vortices of force push against each other. And the “planet” as a whole is smaller than previous experiments had suggested 」

Rust + WASM on the client side requires that mindset.
