he doesn’t answer his voicemails

ahn?? is this to me? i rarely use phones. Or maybe you are talking about the owner of the text. Because I think it was not clear to some that I am not the author of this text, it is from Nick Hinton. For those who don´t know him, he became somewhat famous on the interwebs for be one of the creators of the Randonautica App.


Wow, you guys really got a problem with quantum woo woo. Ok, noted, no more quantum woo woo on this topic!  :)


God dainty I just cant keep proper names in order.

I keep on trying to read Marx, currently mulling over the Third Economic and Philosophic manuscript, on The Power of Money, specifically. Very condensed good.

Also, let’s see, what’s for lunch... “Dust” series on YouTube has a few good ones, “Control-Z” being as good a place as any to start.

I don’t know... he doesn’t answer his voicemails and seems to have a rather blunt understanding of ludic principles and fallacies.

Re: “Meh” I think it was this latest season of doom patrol, had some sort of Jack the Ripper episode that was rather chilling, for me.

"A sheriff launched an algorithm to predict who might commit a crime. Dozens of people said they were harassed by deputies for no reason."

But according to a six-month investigation published this week by the Tampa Bay Times, the high-tech tool deployed by the Pasco Sheriff's Office didn't lead to a reduction in violent crime — instead, 21 families singled out by the algorithm said they were routinely harassed by deputies, even when there was no evidence of a specific crime.

In September 2019, deputies showed up at 15-year-old Rio Wojtecki's door because the algorithm had determined Rio was one of the county's "Top 5" at risk of committing more crimes, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Before that, Rio had been arrested only one time, a year prior, and was charged with sneaking into a carport and stealing motorized bicycles. Rio had already been assigned a juvenile probation officer — but because of the algorithm, police showed up at Rio's house to question him at least 21 times, beginning with that September visit, Rio's mother told the Tampa Bay Times.

People's criminal records — including charges that were later dropped — were fed into the algorithm to determine potential future offenders. Former employees of the sheriff's office said deputies were instructed to visit the homes of people the algorithm selected, charge them with zoning violations, and make arrests for any reason they could. Those violations and arrests were then fed back into the algorithm, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Thats like the movie Minority Report... there was another one involving with an artificial intelligence "Sphynx" that was similar, wish i could remember.

Cursory search turns up “Cyborg 009” as an anime/manga with Sphinx AI.


Re: quoted text— fucking carports, always the obligatory enhancement to what would have been a simple theft.
