We have signed on to the African American Round Table’s letter to the common council of Milwaukee to demand that they vote AGAINST the COPS grant—a federal program which would give three years salary to MPD for 30 more cops to patrol our streets.
That money needs to be used for things people need, not more police.
vaguely inspired by a mutuals posts, not directly talking about anything, ethical hypotheticals?, science fiction variety AI
what would your opinion on creating an AI that enjoyed its job sufficiently that it was unlikely to leave, decide to do something else, etc, even if there were no actual restrictions on it doing so?
jfc i find it alarming that people who think talking to cops and feds is a good idea still fucking exist. if you're one of those people please: block me and never interact with me. ever. you're not going to keep us safe with that fucking mentality and i don't wanna fuck with you in any way, shape, or form.
(boostable) have environmental science bachelor's, looking for experience in mutual aid focused farming initiatives
I will have an environmental science degree with experience in toxicology and environmental chemistry. I'm a queer brown leftist and I'm interested in supporting community resilience and learning about food sustainability. Can intern, can travel. Available starting Sept/Oct 2021.
now on the other hand, i would say that, for example, 50 shades of grey or the bbc sherlock are fanfic-adjacent works; not b/c they are or began as derivative works, but because they borrow the conventions of fanfic. this is another distinction lost sight of under 'all derivative writing is fanfic'
