"The Trustworthy AI story is a marketing narrative invented by industry. [...] Hence the Trustworthy AI narrative is, in reality, about developing future markets and using ethics debates as elegant public decorations for a large-scale investment strategy [...].

We are in a rapid historical transition that is taking place at many levels simultaneously. The window of opportunity within which we can control the future of AI will close in a few years' time."

Do you know someone with an older or lower-end laptop that struggles to run properly?

#Lubuntu is a good way of bringing old/slow computers back to life, and is very easy to use with a familiar Windows-style start menu and icon desktop 👍

Lubuntu is based on Ubuntu and runs the same Linux apps, but it has a lighter interface with much lower system requirements.

Breaking: @ManfredWeber and the @EPPGroup want the vote on #Article13 and the Copyright Directive moved ahead to next week to pre-empt the #SaveYourInternet/#StopACTA2 protests! We need a public outcry to stop this!

@jeffalyanak @alcinnz People don’t want iOS, macOS, or Windows. People want to share their photos with their friends, chat to their loved ones, maybe write up a paper or play a game. No one ever wakes up saying “I want that operating system.”

Things that are hard about building an SPA:

- Managing the back button yourself
- Managing scroll state yourself
- Managing focus state yourself

A lot of the nuts-and-bolts stuff that the browser is supposed to do automatically now becomes your responsibility. I think a lot of people underestimate this when building an SPA.

Thinking tonight might be the night to change from oxygen os to lineage. Saturday night is truly rock and roll night.
