chicago politics, racism 

I've devoted a lot of time to understanding the criminal punishment system in an effort to destroy it and replace it with better things, and I still come across brain-breaking sentences sometimes.

In a city that is 50% white and 30% Black,

US FINALLY shamed into backing vaccine waivers, & their pharma megacorp shares plummet. If it wasn't for China and Russia & other counter-hegemon embarrassing the West by waiving IP rights early & getting vaccines to poorer countries, US would've kept letting millions die of covid in Global South for CEO billions.

Mi agradecimiento a nuestro hermano y amigo Steven Seagal, quien me ha sorprendido con un bonito obsequio, una Espada Samurái, símbolo de liderazgo. La recibí con mucha emoción de parte de un gran maestro y experto en artes marciales. ¡Qué Gran Honor!

Complacido de recibir la grata visita del actor estadounidense, Steven Seagal. Sin duda alguna, Steven no es solo uno de los grandes del cine, también, es un dedicado luchador por la Paz de los pueblos. ¡Bienvenido!

hey all, here's a new computer thing I made! it's called the Nonsense Laboratory, and it's a series of weird little tools for manipulating the spelling and sound of words with machine learning: artsexperiments.withgoogle.com

it's part of a series of projects launched yesterday showing the outcomes of the Artists + Machine Intelligence grant program, which you can learn more about here: experiments.withgoogle.com/ami

Does this make sense? Trying to explain that we store only an SHA256 hash of user email addresses so we can verify ownership of the account when a password reset is requested (with the e-mail address re-entered at that time)

Hey immersive web folks,

Running a one-day event about all of WebXR development is somewhat impossible because there's so much going on.

I'm hosting an open town hall *this Sunday* to discuss which topics and voices should to be heard in the WebXR Developer Summit on May 25th.

Sucks that crytpo has completely co-opted the term "decentralized"

Guess I'll just only use "federated" from now on for discussing @activitypub

@sl007 thank you Sebi for getting me looped into that session!

Just the worker-owners of immers.space working out some of the last details of our governance structure with our 3D & brainstorming tools
