My day in a headline
"Retired person sleeps in very late."

I get that y'all sit around dreaming of the 90's hating Microsoft and pretend Google is some kinda spy agency but...

Can we focus on destroying Facebook for awhile? They are openly admitting they want to help shady politicians lie globally. They're openly admitting their unprecedented ad targeting should be used for politics. Their founder is now admitting that Facebook has a material advantage if they influence the elections away from even modestly leftist policies.

They're not a hypothetical harm. They're not an abstract harm. They're not just collecting highly personal data on a global scale and probably aware of your family graph on a level no other company can match, but *they're openly admitting they're part of political misinformarion*. They helped analytics firms game the Brexit and US2016 election.

This is the means of communication, folks. Either we seize it or we destroy it. Option 3 is that Facebook is a government propaganda system for hire contracting itself out to every would-be despot in the globe, tactically tilting the scales everywhere to maximize the influence of unrestricted capitalism.

You are now entering October Country. Please drive, ride, slither, and crawl carefully.

Knowing humans are v poor at working out what their emotions are from just the physical state TIL I can re-assign my jab induced 'moderate anxiety' as 'moderate excitement'. Much more pleasant.

I know where this company is located... about 30 minutes from here in a tiny town... They do really cool stuff for NASA.

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.
