If my memory serves me right, I had a record player in my home until the turn of this century. I always had one growing up and I took it with me when I got my own place. Somewhere when Napster became a household name, the first MP3 players came to market and broadband internet started, I stopped buying and... frankmeeuwsen.com

Het roer moet om. Zo simpel is het eigenlijk. Ik lag zaterdagochtend wakker te worden, ik had mijn dagelijkse rondje Woordle, Wordle, Worldle en Quordle gedaan en plots overviel het me. Al doomscrollend door Instagram vroeg ik me af, waarom ben ik nu weer op zoek naar nieuwe posts van accounts die ik volg? Ik weet dat ik een overvol Readwise-account heb waar ik te weinig gebruik van maak. Waarom dan toch weer plaatjes en videoâs kijken? Mijn persoonlijk AI-therapist is op dat soort momenten heerlijk duidelijk: Ik ben verslaafd aan dopamine. Novelty seeking behavior is a common trait in humans. O... frankmeeuwsen.com

This letter is an invitation from those who gave us the open internet as we know it. Itâs an invitation to the United Nations to reconsider the steps they take with the Global Digital Compact or at least include those who are familiar with the technological framework of the web. "The Internet is an unusual technology because it is fundamentally distributed. It is built up from all of the participating networks.[â¦] Yet over the past few years we have noticed a willingness to address issues on the Internet and Web by attempting to insert a hierarchical model of governance over technical matters." ... frankmeeuwsen.com

@ConatusPrinciple thanks. I never got around to it to make my own script. I’m not a programmer so I search/prompt my way through it. Also, Emacs has fallen of the radar lately for me. I was more in config-tweaking (which is a nice hobby) instead of actually doing anything.

I feel so much better today. One day of good sleep and resting drove away the flue-like feelings. So I started my day with a nice walk in a nearby forest. It was quiet, sunny and beautiful. I even encountered a flock of sheep and some grazers. What a way to start the day.

@ton ik snap je punt. Het gaat er bij mij om dat ik niet ongewild notities of foldernamen op het grote scherm wil. Misschien dan juist een “demo-plugin” die delen van je vault afschermt als je het podium op gaat? Op basis van een tag, foldernaam of -hierarchie.

Bookmarked AI maximalists and the danger of social Darwinism "The “embrace AI or else” ethos conveniently ignores one crucial fact: artificial intelligence is a product of human choices and values, not some divine force of nature. We are not passive bystanders in the AI revolution, helplessly swept along by the currents of technological change. We have the power to shape the development and deployment of AI systems by our deepest-held principles and aspirations. We can create an AI future that empowers rather than subjugates humanity and creates shared prosperity rather than entrenched inequality." ... frankmeeuwsen.com

I noticed the same thing as Ben, due to the upcoming AI-training-bootcamp from Meta on everything from images to texts, artists are leaving the silos and set up shop at Cara. The first thing I did when I opened the app is to find out if it is somehow federated or decentralized. Unfortunately it is not. Not yet maybe? Iâd love to fill my timeline with more diverse artists from various sources. There is already Pixelfed, which leans more towards photography and video. Cara is aimed at a broader scope of artforms. All without AI, with which Ben gives a great explanation how federation opens doors to ... frankmeeuwsen.com

@jarrod I added an extra sentence to the prompt in the OpenAI Vision Generate Alt Text shortcut. "In your description, do not use any punctuation marks like ",;,: or '." I experienced it can mess up the parsing of the post.

@jarrod I just used your great Shortcuts to bulk upload images to micro.blog ánd generate alt texts with OpenAI vision. Love this. It does however create txt files in the directories from where I upload. I added the MB Bulk Uploader to my Finder's rightclick menu to use it. Is the txt-file a result of that action? Is it something I can disable?
