It has been pointed out to me that the neural net-generated teas are almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.

Just updated my Philadelphia-based network infrastructure exploration site with new things I found on the street, networksofphilly.org

It also keeps an index of various surveillance-based info requests open with the city police.

Consider starting one for your city!

when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"

@ptvirgo @lxoliva We should be advocating for both of these things in tandem: fully reproducible, free software, reproducible and auditable software.

But for the reasons I explained earlier in the thread, *it isn't possible to trust all software anymore*, and not only on a "well it's free software thus it's secure" perspective either. We need to do better. We need *secure architectures* along with free software, so that damage can be limited.

These. Are. Not. Mutually. Exclusive.

<dustyweb> *you peek in*
<dustyweb> "oh god there's too much going on in here"
