Or, you can replace steps 2–4 with pitting Google's toys against one another, and have the audio Captcha solved by google's speach-to-text algorithm: vice.com/en_us/article/pa55z8/

The i7-6700 die is 122mm² big (en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/cor), which makes an almost exactly 11mm edge length, assuming it is square.

11mm / 20nm = 550 000 discernable details on each axis

550 000 * 0.2mm = 110m

so that's it, the printout would be a square 110m on each side, or a bit more than a hectar.

And you would still have to crouch down to see the 0.2mm details everywhere...

"What rational person would decide that the way to write great novels was to begin by spending several years creating an imaginary elvish language, like Tolkien, or visiting every household in southwestern Britain, like Trollope? No one, including Tolkien and Trollope."

Yep, that’s Amnesty International saying that.

We've been selected with c0d3 p03try (@flordefuego and @rapofran) to present a performance on the International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC). The problem is there are no funds to travel, so if anyone knows of any scholarship it would be really helpful cause we have no money to travel and it would be for us such an opportunity to assist :(


Nos seleccionaron con c0d3 p03try para participar de la ICLC que será en Irlanda pero no tenemos dinero para viajar, si alguien sabe de alguna beca a la que podamos aplicar seria de mucha ayuda, gracias!

Sentirse inútil es perder contra el capitalismo y su productividad. Somos más que sombras en pos de la eficiencia. Somos más que bits cargados de ansiedad.

@joshavanier I can upload the code somewhere if you are interested (CW: is quite hacky and zero-polished :P)

@joshavanier Ok, I took a look. The structure is very similar to what you have, pair of words associated to possible next words.
It has 47905 pairs.

40442 of those pairs have a single option as next word (I guess that's why it generates almost always textual extracts)

There's one entry that has 4127 possibilities. When I took a look, I found out it was a triple space 🤷‍♂️

looks like if I do a more intelligent parsing and some cleanup of the model it might return more interesting results :)

Just built a (proto, toy, mini) testing DSL in ruby because... procrastination :P


sample output:

I parsed the first 3 chapters from "Los siete locos" from here: biblioteca.derechoaleer.org/bi

I have the chain dumped to a file, I can take some numbers out if you are interested

(I did one a while ago with some texts of Roberto Arlt here say-something-arlt.herokuapp.c but I remember I struggled a bit to not make it enter in endless loops, and to control the amount of possible variations (I remember that I used a config parameter that makes it aware of the n previous words, but having it higher than 2 was just extracting literal phrases from the book most of the time :( )
