Do we need a leftist Luke Smith?

>>6533 >worked past tense
What technology is this?
wait what's wrong with him? i cant really tell his politics, but i think thats a good thing, at least he's critical of bad design and for privacy and living a good life. After all, this is what commies want for ppl. A good life. Like he's prolly totally economically retarded from being an academic and stemlord and now trying to live innawoods or something, but he doesnt talk about it does he? I kinda like his shit, i was skeptical at first with all the meme thumbnails and dumb shit, but he seems genuinely intelligent and not absolutely spergish. If anything all the memeing and signaling is to bring in retarded zoomers to get educated in a way they'll actually listen to. I think what he does is kinda commendable
hahahahahah the absolute state of leftypol
>>6560 he just does whatever /g/ thinks is cool. nothing about him is intelligent or groundbreaking.

Walmart-exclusive router and others sold on Amazon & eBay contain hidden backdoors to control devices https://cybernews.com/security/walmart-exclusive-routers-others-made-in-china-contain-backdoors-to-control-devices/ Instead of asking for libre hardware, burgers are going to demand that production is brought back to the US.
>>6564 >implying their hardwares don't have backdoors. Oh, lel.

Could this be used to our advantage? Socialists would rather spend their time arguing with 20 other socialists(as seen here on leftypol) than venture to someplace like facebook full of hundreds of thousands of typical liberals who would be a much greater return on investment in agitation. So we could train one of these bots on marxist literature and leftypol and then send it out into the wider web to spread the message faster than any person could.
>>6537 >>6539 I fucking hate the future.
Currently it's skills are vastly overblown but it's just a matter of time before the chances you're talking to a bot pretending to be a human go near 100%. Maybe then we'll retvrn to tradition and the internet will be solely populated by schizophrenics and GPT8 bots.
>>6546 this is already what the internet is, they just havent made it known yet
>>6559 Doesn't most online content in general already come from bots? Once they start imitating human speech internet communities are going to become even more insulated.

Unpopular opinion - Fuck 'privacy' Comrade 11/26/2020 (Thu) 16:21:20 No. 6552 [Reply] [Last]
Privacy on the internet in an inherently retarded and infeasible concept. For most people, privacy does not matter, and it is a good thing. Since its very inception the internet and its communication protocols were never designed with privacy in mind, because humans don't live a private lifestyle. Do you schizos wrap yourself in tinfoil clothing and hide every inch of your skin and use a voice changer when talking to other people IRL? Do you tunnel every single conversation one on one so no other person can overhear you? You are already monitored on a daily basis, and humans have been in general for thousands of years now, and it is a general way of information exchange and communication among people. Not everyone can live a hermit lifestyle encrypting every bit of traffic that leaves their basement. The upcoming integration of cloud based services and the IoT among machines, along with increased automation will help more people who don't care about retarded non issues like muh data mining and those super fucking great cooming sites you searched for the other month. Maybe you neckbeards should try leaving your house more often and realize that technology exists to serve social needs and thus information IS required in the process. Using busted up, old, Thinkpads and then cutting off hardware wiring does not make you any more special or 'secure'. Secure from what? Who exactly are you trying to hide from? Motherfucker I can guarantee that most of these self proclaimed 'privacy enthusiasts' are friendless losers, so nobody would care either way if anything happened to you. The average human lifespan is around 80 years now, all that time that could be spent being open and social with people, living a carefree life, and instead you spend it on some vague concept of being 'le based privacy chad hackerman', someone who is so non-existent, even online, that the people of your own forums and imageboards won't recognize you. You won't look back at all those years wasted on ricing up your machines and encrypting your TOR mails for gazillionth time, just in case of that tiny off chance that a glowie decided to read your smut collection that particular day. Though you might remember the day you had a good laugh with your friends on dickcord or other 'privacy nightmares'. Unless you're an Illegalist, in which case please carry on.

>>5049 All you are going to get with a keyboard and a hammer is a destroyed keyboard. Just saying in case you didn't figure that out before with your commie IQ
>>5049 What's really funny and contradictory is that without capitalism you wouldn't have the hardware or internet to post or host this project from. Without capitalism you wouldn't have your Thinkpad made by IBM back in the day and currently by Lenovo, how fucking contradictory is being a commie.
>>5056 I wonder why in the fuck everyone is called comrade by default instead of anonymous but I think I've figured it out. It must be because the creators of this IB basically are fucking disgusting commies that just might ban you upon the littlest dissent detected or maybe not.
>>6514 >>6513 >>6512 >>6511 Take your meds and lurk moar.
>>6513 Capitalism didn't create any of those things. Human labor did. Read Marx, schizo.

>>6536 What about 24/88.2? Seems like the most logical step forward and endgame.
>>6538 I'd rather keep 48*x. 44.1 doesn't divide from standard time bases, higher multiples less so. It was born of a terrible compromise between fatuous Beethoven and an easy to use form factor. Also, production routinely occurs at 48*x, usually 96 or 192. The downmix to 44.1*x will introduce artifacts that didn't need to be introduced. >>6536 If some teen can hear in that range well, I say more power to them.

>>6541 Not really. They seem to be about 5dB more sensitive at high frequencies than their parents' cohort. It's hard to find any research outside the nominal 20-20k band of human hearing.
>>6540 >Also, production routinely occurs at 48*x, usually 96 or 192. I remember reading this was only the case for movies etc.? And not for music, which has been produced at 44.1*x for years but is being released in 96+ like in movies for hi-res because higher numbers = better marketing.

Seeing the Internet of SHIT being more popular than ever makes me think people are never going to be "redpilled" about mainstream technology. Also, sorry for posting twitter screencaps.
Sometimes relatives tell me they bought a smart vacuum robot or whatever the fuck and I have to put effort into not showing my power level. Not that they're going to listen to me even though they know I've got a degree in this shit.
it's almost as if burgers want their corporate daddies to get it in raw
