When will AI become sentient?

(please boost)

is really a curse.

It keeps , no matter how much effort you put on it.

Then I decided to create an archive for "all the things I will never be able to do."

Well, guess what... That's more work.

So, I decided to quit and keep doing as usual - meaning, indefinitely some things *I should do*.

But I'm really about how you're dealing with this. 😅

I moved from YouTube to Vimeo, and now to a self-hosted PeerTube, but there's no denying YouTube has more reach and discoverability.

And that's even though I only had a few hundred views on my YT videos (max views on PT for original content is currently 10 -- I did get more on one of the "Pepper & Carrot" releases that I participated in, but then not on the next one, so it's also hit-and-miss).

It's hard to imagine getting 1K, much less 100K, views on PeerTube.

Thank you mastodon people. You just made me win a dinner.
When I told my friend I was going to post this here she asked me not to do it, because "it would start a war". So, I bet with her a proper dinner (not pizza or burgers) that this post would have 2 comments or less. :blobhappy: :kirby_happy: 😋

'New Scientist' is carrying an interesting article this week on gravitational memory, which also has an electromagnetic counterpart.

There are tests planned using "short pulses into very long antennas".

My comment was: "As I see it, money as debt can only be advantageous to the creditors, right?"

Disclaimer 1: I'm not an economist, I only took two semester courses in economics during the first two years of my undergraduate degree.

Disclaimer 2: It is not my wish to start a discussion about 'capitalism' vs 'socialism'. 😅
