I can buy a home that is close to work/school (to save time and money and avoid polluting) — or a home that is nice to live in (spacious, bright, quiet, on a pretty neighbourhood).

I don’t seem to be able to do both without going astray from .

You've seen the Stable Diffusion AI art all over Twitter.

But how does Stable Diffusion _work_?

…y por este tipo de idioteces no puedo llamarme yo «antiespecista».

Ningún animal no humano se va a sentir ofendido por usar el masculino genérico para referirse a él. Pista: no saben leer.

Las vidas de los animales (humanos o no) no son valores absolutos. Si hay que sacrificar a un señor de Murcia para evitar una hecatombe nuclear, lo correcto y moral es hacerlo. Si es muy conveniente (o sea: si las alternativas son enormemente caras o ineficaces) enviar a una perra (o a veinte) al espacio y dejar que muera allí para asegurarnos de que los primeros humanos que hagan lo mismo podrán volver a salvo, lo correcto y moral es hacerlo.

(I don’t like “speciesism”: I suspect as an idea it is wrong, and a bad concept to try to rally people around. But I’m a /#vegan, and whatever draws attention to animal welfare is a push in the right direction.)

The core of effective altruism is the Drowning Child scenario. The world is full of death and suffering. Your money (or time, or whatever resource you prefer to spend) could fix more of it than you think — one controversial analysis estimates $5,000 to save a life. You would go crazy if you tried to devote 100% of your time and money to helping others. But if you decide to just help when you feel like it or a situation comes up, you’ll probably forget. Is there some more systematic way to commit yourself to some amount between 0% and 100% of your effort (traditionally 10%)? And once you’ve done that, how do you make those resources go as far as possible? This is , the rest is just commentary.”
