>he isn't Marxist - Leninist - Maoist - Stallmanist ngmi You know that Stallman is basically essential to understand if you want to liberate the working class of today. He teaches us to take our digital means of production, and it can be taken a step further when applying his thought to Free and Open Source hardware designs. Read Free Software, Free Society Then to take it to the hardware level, check out the Open Source Ecology project: https://www.ted.com/talks/marcin_jakubowski_open_sourced_blueprints_for_civilization?utm_source=tedcomshare&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=tedspread THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT PROJECT FOR THE REVOLUTION but it's never being talked about >The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts. We’re developing open source industrial machines that can be made at a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing our designs online for free.

>>3854 >My ancient friend probably didn't know that the 17 year old girl he was introduced to by the jet setting billionaire serial paedophile on his infamous sex slave rape island (after said paedophile was already registered as a sex offender) didn't actually want to have sex with the pensioner she'd just been introduced to >Is it really sexual assault if he didn't beat her into submission before having non-consensual sex with her? Do you seriously think Minsky didn't know? In what possible world could he not have known? Do you think Stallman is correct to assert his friend probably didn't know that he was raping a 17 year old girl, and that you can't describe a much older man forcing himself on an exploited teenager as sexual assault if there wasn't any physical violence involved (apart from the raping, obviously)? The entire mailing list reads like a repeat of Stallman's past ah but you see [technicality] makes it OK defences of kiddy fiddling and he can't manage to take the obvious advice that this would get to the media and that the entire thing reads like a desperate defence of Minsky But yeah, he wrote an editor, and has some good takes on software, so we should overlook this and all the other shit about it being ok to fuck corpses and dogs so long as you get consent and that people hate most paedophiles because parents don't want to admit that they're kids are blossoming
>>3855 >we should overlook this There's nothing to overlook, he literally said nothing wrong. Keep reaching, charlatan.
>>3856 Good comeback, only took you more than two hours, instead of the 30 minutes for the others, did you go away and try and find something to prove me wrong then get frustrated and deny he said anything wrong when he continually defended his rapist friend so you could have the last word?
>>3855 1. This has no relation to his fields of expertise 2. These are only his views on the matter, why should I care if he thinks it's alright to fuck dogs or whatever else as long as he hasn't done it? 3. He wasn't kicked out because of his controversial views on sexuality, he was kicked out using those views because he had controversial stuff such as the GPL license (which companies such as Mozilla hate), his support for unionism and his comments on the sketchy stuff done by tech companies. 4. Stallman has had controversial points on sexuality since before 2003 even, I have read those emails. He was however kicked out at this time not because of his controversial statements, which he has a ton of him, but because of his views in regards to tech and law.
>>3853 Different Anon. There is one nuance that you seem to ignore. It is obvious to us and to most humans that the girl would only have faked some pretense of consent due to coercion. It is also obvious to us that most functioning humans could never have mistaken that for actual consent, even without the known sex offender and pedo running the island. But Installman Gentoo is so utterly clueless about anything female that e.g. he had to have it explained to him that a woman always declining his date requests as being busy means he should get the hint and stop asking, and he lives in an alternate reality where in countries without legalized prostitution there are magical enclaves where independent prostitutes can operate without being under the control and exploitation of pimps and gangs. So while his Minsky comments are indefensible, to his understanding of the world they were also not made in bad faith. He genuinely believes batshit insane stuff like the girl could have offered such a pretense that Minsky could not have known it to be fake and coerced. As for the "because the glowies forced him out" bit, ask yourself why the obvious lie of equating "pretended to be willing under coercion" with "was willing" was pushed so hard and for so long in every venue. Could all those people genuinely have been so dumb that they couldn't differentiate between the two? Remember that he was forced out on the strength of the reaction to and image damage by "was willing", not "pretended to be willing under coercion".

>>3834 mac with homebrew is mostly linux. There's honestly not a lot of day to day differences you bump into. Sometimes some libraries are fucked and sometimes, but to be fair, that also sometimes happens on linux. Some command line utilities are different or worse, but it's not really a problem unless you are a command line power user, which OP is probably not, and you can install the more standard command line utilities anyways. At the end, macos is a unix like OS. You also get stuff like a word processor, keynote to make presentations, imovie which sucks but works, and perfect hardware support from the OS. Windows sucks as a dev environment, but if you're starting out you can definently get away with it without major problems. Probably install chocolately asap, git, sublime text or the intellij IDE if you have access to a student email. I've heard atom is really good for front end development, which I presume OP will be doing, but I haven't used it myself.

>>3825 >freedom So much freedom when everything I do is funneled through privately owned and allotted internet anyway. So much freedom when the game is rigged from the start. Define the 'freedom' of Linux. Actually make an argument for it. Actually convince people if you supposedly care so much about 'free' software. 'le freedom xD' does not alone convince users to use an OS that doesn't 'just werk' no matter how much you repeat it; if it did work, everyone would be using GNU+Linux and we'd all be living in the FOSStopia already, with RMS as General Secretary of GNUnited Nations.

invidious is shutting down Comrade 08/02/2020 (Sun) 22:12:49 No. 3816 [Reply] [Last]
So the author quits the invidious project, so what now ? It seems that other instances https://instances.invidio.us/ will continue but according to https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=24024230 the hole project is being abandoned. Here's the not from the project author: >Stepping away from open source >Published August 1, 2020, tags: invidious >Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of https://invidio.us and stepping away from development. If you have an >account on the site, you can export your data here, which will allow you to import everything to another instance or self-host. >The API will continue to function until October 1st, to give time for any services relying on it to migrate to other solutions. If you're a patron on Liberapay, I would urge you to switch your donation to iv-org, as that will ensure it goes to the stewards of the project going forward. >At the time of this writing, the main Invidious instance has roughly 35,000 users. It's difficult for me to even begin to think of those as actual people, and not just a number. At that level, the amount of feedback I receive, which I would consider rather small in comparison to others I've seen, is overwhelming. It's demoralizing not being able to respond to all of it properly. Even more so when I've received something that deserves an involved response, but I haven't had the time to reply, which counter-intuitively means the best comments are least likely to receive any response. To echo antirez: it's crushing not being able to be "there" for people. >Lately, I've felt myself withdraw much more in return. For any project though, especially something that requires maintanence, it's difficult to actually "unplug" and mentally recharge. Turning off notifications has helped, but it's definitely taken its toll.

>>3818 You can start with using distributed file sharing systems to alleviate server load. The reality is that Youtube has never actually been profitable until Google's very recent effort to transform its focus on data commodification and information control. Youtube is simply supported to maintain a monopoly on the video hosting market, that's all. Profitability shouldn't be the concern with a video hosting service.

smart contracts, chainlink, project cybersyn Comrade 08/02/2020 (Sun) 14:38:01 No. 3796 [Reply] [Last]
I see actual application for these things outside of capitalism, in fact maybe even a way to force us into a more socialist economy with the automation of accounting, resource management, lawyers, simple things like sending data to weather apps and the like. Just generally making life easier and will go hand in hand with the automation of many other jobs . In fact chile even tried to do something similar in the 70s under allende before he was assassinated but ultimately was never put into practice. Take a look at project cybersyn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Cybersyn , fascinating stuff. I would also like to leave you with this video, some of it is rather heady and may require the searching of definitions but i foun the history of contracts fascinating and inspiring. https://youtu.be/ufVyX7JDCgg on top of all of this, chainlink is an open source decentralized entity . Id love to hear ur thoughts, and i think this could be especially cool to any transhumanists around lol

>>3801 I was talking about the low importance of privacy in communism. In capitalism, privacy matters but not in the way it is usually reflected in the media, which is mostly spitting specifically the bourgs' concerns at you presented as general human interest. It's not lack of privacy on some absolute scale that matters, but the asymmetry of information, that is some powerful people have information about you while you don't have equivalent information about them. The same type of information about everybody becoming available to everybody means a reduction in the power differential.
>>3805 how would data be regulated and supplied to the people ? and what would the majority of people have as for use and the ability to easily parse for the data? only people working in certainf ields will find the data relevant which puts them in a position of power, i think relegating open source communist ai to parsing it would be better than human judgment a large amount of the time. maybe not at this exact moment, especially as we live and participate ina capitalist world at the moment , but in a communist technological society data would still be important. such as resource allegation . which is why i think project cybersyn was so revolutionary at the time , and still is in theory today.
>>3802 Theres some blockchains that do attempt to have actual privacy such as monero as zerocash. The both have flaws but it works better than bitcoin.
>>3810 A circulating currency that is transferable between individuals is antithetical to the goals of communism. At most such things might be useful for a short period of time while a revolution takes shape under a bourgeois state, but it should quickly be abolished if a revolution is successful. Cryptocurrencies in general are used for nothing but lumpen criminal enterprise, buying drugs, human trafficking, etc.
