Listing tech items on marketplace, and several times now I've had shipping staff from cruise ships and container ships bid on things, asking if we can meet weeks in the future. Is there a global arbitrage in old tech going on here? I'm guessing this all happens in a rather gray area of import/export declarations.
I think much of my issue around the Content Warning culture on Mastodon, is the vocabulary. "Content Warning" has a very specific meaning in other contexts. Here, it is more like "Content Filter" or "Subject Line," to give readers a choice to expand or not.
This feels wrong, because of other contexts where majority folks have tried to express trauma or pain at even having to hear about the racism that impacted me. Feels very much like "Ban teaching civil rights, so white kids don't feel bad."
I am a harmless wandering anthropologist, bringing 20 hours of free #CausalInference and #BayesianStatistics instruction to your door. From foundations of inference through DAGs, #MultilevelModels & poststratified causal effects to #GaussianProcesses, Bayesian imputation & ODEs. Theatrical trailer below.

Ok, last posts of the night, before I really peel my eyeballs off my head and soak them overnight. Please read this short and sweet summary of M. Scott Peck's 4 stages of community, from his excellent book The Different Drum:
Just built a NAS using TrueNAS this week. I'm using the SCALE version (running in Debian), but if you're a FreeBSD lover, there is also TrueNAS CORE.
Amazing amount of kit for such a lightweight install. ZFS, Samba, timemachine backups, virtualization and Kubernetes/Docker container apps.
Check it out, very slick so-far. Not quite as dead simple as Synology, but you can still pop the hood and see what's going on.
This is the monogram.org Mastadon server. monogram.org started in 1999 as a community of likeminded people interested in open discourse about technology, arts, culture, and a better world. The domain monogram.org is inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's Combine Monogram. We got inspired, around 1994, by Monogram through the documentary series "The Shock of the New" where Robert Hughes discusses pop art and its influences on modern culture. The community around monogram.org has continued a sort of Flex Seminar through online forums and other activities over the years.
