Hi, all! I finally got round to setting up my profile. Looking forward to toot (?) with you all!

I'm most online on evenings CEST and weekends.

I just "got" the [[Baldwin effect]] and how it differs from Lamarckianism, not on my first try mind you (I'd read about it before).

The key aspect I was missing is that it arises due to neuroplasticity unlocking exploration of the adaptation space.

[[videogrep]] looks cool:

Lets you build what they call [[supercuts]], like the creepy videos of Zuckerberg saying 'more' over and over again. But also seems like a solid way to extract clips from long videos with relatively low effort.

Suboptimal name though, Imagen just means 'image' in Spanish.

[[imagen]] looks impressive: gweb-research-imagen.appspot.c

I didn't think a clear improvement would come so soon after [[dall-e 2]], but here we go. Imagen seems like it can do text just fine, where dall-e would likely stumble.

Just got this spam in Japanese and I couldn't resist translating it, hilarity ensued

@moonlion_eth @flancian @moonlion_eth the main thing that Braid is trying to do is add synchronisation (ot / crdt's) as part of the HTTP specification so that people don't have to keep re inventing their own protocols.

@moonlion_eth @flancian In the agora there is a Flancia ...

Finally playing with [[podman]], trying to make it easy to run an Agora as a container.

Happy to see this very early try at building an image sort of work (produced something, although far from perfect.)

Might post progress in this thread :)

Finally we could have some specific mechanism to have browsers volunteer [[fediverse]] login information to interested instances? Unsure what it could be, but I'll try to research this if I have the time.

I'll try to answer: it's because we don't have Fediverse tracking cookies. Perhaps we could have those, and have them be opt in?

Also I get to these instances mostly clicking on things that show up in my timeline, the links could contain optional tracking information it seems to me.

Why is it that IIUC Facebook can track me as I browse the internet even though I don't have Facebook, but Mastodon instances have to ask me what my home instance is every single time I want to follow someone? :)

I was feeling down (it happens on Sunday evenings somewhat often, and I *am* undergoing a breakup) but I mopped the floors (kitchen and bathrooms) and now I'm feeling better.

I'll now do :

RT @cymatiste
I have like two speeds: chasing goals, sparkling with magical fire, or catatonic, suspended in a sea of ambient sorrow.
trying to learn to blend these two colours into fractal gradients that I could surf on between the extremes.

[[consensual porn]]
RT @FPallopides
One thing I would like to see crypto fix is reliably consensual porn.

I'm generally pro-porn, but I'm also pro ongoing consent. If there was a way for porn producers to both sign their works & to revoke them at any time, that would be the kind of porn I would be most okay with.

I like how people in the internet say things like "this is not investment advice", as if someone is going to come after "vintagechad" from Reddit when their stock picks tank
