gridbeam, a modular construction system
it's like lego for real-sized people (as opposed to lego-sized people)
Aquí el #1 de #collagetober2019 vamos a ver como evoluciona esto, con ustedes: .interdimensión.
"It's so strange to realize..."
"I have too many bones in me."
"Did... did you discover some extra bones you didn't previously know about?"
There was a pregnant pause.
"I mean eventually they'll go off and do their own thing, but it'll be a while."
There was another pregnant pause.
"We're going to be parents."
"OH THANK GOD."
"Why what did you think?"
"You ate the neighbor."
"That bitter soul? No way!"

This pulls a lot from The Uninhabitable Earth, but also pulls in some other sources and provides a lot of angles on the subject:
"In a recent paper that made waves in the ML community, a team at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, found that training a model for natural-language processing – the field that helps “virtual assistants” like Alexa understand what you’re saying – can emit as much as 626,155lb of carbon dioxide. That’s about the same amount produced by flying roundtrip between New York and Beijing 125 times."
& another perspective :
I don't think it's useful (for a lack of a better word) to look at Linux and GNU GPL and fsf like they're roman polanski movies. software is functional stuff, like cutlery, or drilling machine. Of course you'll want to buy from local makers and not plastic, but, that doesn't mean you should move to Microsoft/Apple just because Linus and RMS are insensitive white cis privileged males. Of course all feels are valid.
@neauoire Iappreciate these things and I understand how expensive it would be to make it wood or plastic, etc.
it just feels like the world is literally on fire and people are making small temporary(!) luxuries to distract themselves, and that's partly why the world is like this.
Like the Ouya, I can't really imagine people remembering this whatsoever in four or five years. Which is fine, but, sigh. It means that most of the models will end up as needlessly consumed resources.
@dualhammers remember what I said about multidisciplinarists.
"If you identify as a multimedia creative, you're in a unique position by being able to combine multiple disciplines, if you can draw pictures and can model scenes, every time that you are not combining the two, you're conceding defeat."
"npm is not a benevolent institution. It cannot be one. The possibility of it being that ended the day its owner took VC funding instead of putting it into a foundation or some other form of community ownership. That decision turned npm into a financial instrument."
"I appreciate SDF but it's a general-purpose server and the name doesn't make it obvious that it's about art." - Eugen Rochko
