Scared Silicon Valley billionaire:

Look, you're just not grasping the scale of the AI threat. What if an AI one day is built that decides to harvest large chunks of the Earth's biosphere in order to make some numbers in a financial engine go up slightly? What would we all do then?

Climate change and species loss researchers:

Really? That's a thing that could happen? And people might not believe the predictions? Do go on.

Billionaire:

Well OBVIOUSLY I don't mean it's happening NOW

It has traditionally been quite difficult to run a server, but there are a number of projects on the Fediverse that are trying to make it easier:

* Gets an interesting idea for something to write up
* Opens up ideas.org to capture it for later
* Forgets the idea in the intervening time

I just closed four tabs each of which was dedicated to doing research for a different joke toot.

You know, it kinda sucks always having interesting ideas of things to make and being able to follow through on nearly none of them.

I feel like there's a larger-than-I-expected number of speakers in the fediverse, which is cool. I wonder if there's a specific instance for it yet?

bicycles are unparalleled in their ability to transport humans efficiently over short or even medium distances in a city. all the advantages of cars and more, with the important caveats of course that they are unusable by the non able bodied and they cant really haul loads. and many of the disadvantages of bicycles melt away when not forced to share road space with the accurséd car. there are already real world examples of primarily bike oriented commuter systems, in for example Denmark

Doh. I decided to try to build sway, so I needed to build wlroots, which required meson >= 0.48.0 and Ubuntu cosmic is only packaging 0.47.2 annnnnd I give up. 😂 cc @SirCmpwn
