I’ve got a new camera! Pentax KX. Unlike the Canon Ae-1 Program, it’s fully mechanical. Everything seems to be in working order, except the focusing ring being misaligned and rotating past infinity.

#Germany (& others) should get a .gov #domain for their governmental websites e.g. ".gov.de"

Would help:

  1. #Authentication as #government both nationally & internationally
  2. Unification of domains & easier discoverability of #gov institutions (especially for foreigners)
  3. Ranking on search results

From 100 people I try to talk to about , maybe 1 wants to 😅

Many know or suspect the issues with the collecting their but they try their best not to think about it, because they seem to feel helpless against it anyway.

Best way to change minds seems to be - living with privacy and answering questions when people notice your behavior & promoting / supporting alternative & .

DuckDuckGo, Microsoft Copilot, ChatGPT's web search, Ecosia, and Qwant all stopped working this morning because of Bing API. 😂 And they want Microsoft Copilot deeply integrated with Windows OS. Imagine someone is unable to book emergency medical appointments because Microsoft Copilot is down or you can't withdraw money or transfer funds through netbanking because AI and screenshot services are down. This is a good example of why we must not trust someone like Microsoft for anything serious.

Sounds like a privacy nightmare. You should consider 👍

One day this will type of stuff will end up mandatory, and even if it’s local it’s being fed into an AI. This stuff will get abused.

Aurora Dome Sky

The image was captured on May 10 during early morning hours from Arlington, Wisconsin, USA. The panorama is a composite of several 6-second exposures covering two thirds of the visible sky, with north in the center, and processed to heighten the colors and remove electrical wires. The photographer (in the foreground) reported that the aurora appeared to flow from a point overhead but illuminated the sky only toward the north.

This is funny. OpenAI, who scraped the entire internet to build its product, is now enforcing copyright via notices. They still don’t give credit for stealing content from everyone, yet now acting like holier-than-thou https://www.reddit.com/r/ChatGPT/comments/1cnvyzp/

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
