I still cry when watching the movie Warrior. Not sure if this is a signal of layers of the story which I haven’t peeled yet and communicate to me, or exactly the opposite.

Learning American Sign Language has been an amazing experience. It's giving me a whole different perspective on communication, culture, social dynamics and even technology.

I remember seeing this picture on the timeline from a sign saying something like "computers are not liable so they should not make decisions", but I can't find it anymore... has anyone else seen it? have a link?

Just announced my aggregator for capsules written in : gemini://em-orbita.com

If you have a capsule in Portuguese, let me know!

I took the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine today and I think I already have a new super-power.
I told the kids: "it's 19:50, it's bed time" and they went to bed!! OMG!

Pfizer is threatening not to ship vaccines to Brazil because the government disclosed the sales contract and this breaks a confidentiality clause.

How can such clauses even exist in public contracts?!

Given the new position the media is taking, it seems my hypothesis is no longer a conspiracy theory:
* The virus leaked from a lab;
* The Chinese government tried to contain it at first;
* Once containment was known to eventually fail, the plan changed to gauge the reaction of other countries against biological weapons;
* Almost all countries failed miserably.

Just watched Midsommar and enjoyed it very much. Definitely not a movie for everyone so I can understand the low review scores.

I was looking at CI options for GitHub and the actions available for scp'ing a file:

github.com/marketplace?type=ac

This is Russian roulette. I tried auditing three of these options and either they use some shifty copy of openssh or I just can't trust all of their indirection layers. How do people trust these things?!
