Every time someone defends algorithmic judgement as having a lower error rate, but ignore that algorithms' scale means that they might have a higher total error, a demon gets its wings.

Looking forward to the day when I can post all the shit I post to Twitter only to Galley, @jny


I'm working on an art project. Here's Seamus Heaney.

Right, I’ll tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to organise a conference in Europe for people working on ethical alternatives to surveillance capitalism that isn’t sponsored by surveillance capitalism. For people who aren’t afraid to pick a side.

Because I’ve had it with this bullshit and we need non-bullshit alternatives.

Watch this space.

*extremely godfather voice*
nice journalism you had here. shame if something happened to it.


@jny Ooooo! I'll read it (though 15k words, means it'll take me a bit...)

@jny also! I recognize me in there, and I’m v/flattered.

@jny 🔥🔥🔥 I mean, *I* wouldn’t be quite so harsh. But you’re not wrong!

I guess the tone down I would make is the aside abt the FB funding? But again, you’re not wrong

@jny It's baffling to me that you can think that "there are good people on Twitter" is a rejoinder to the claim the "Twitter incentivizes bad behavior!"

@jny Ooo nice. lmk when you have a link up, I've got ~feelings~.

@jny: I see you read Jarvis's piece, too! It drives me up a wall that you get called a panicky determinist whenever you point out that tech influences behavior—as though there weren't a more nuanced philosophical stance!

I’ll probably tweet something about it, much nicer, but this is extremely tiresome.

Well Jarvis is at it again: medium.com/whither-news/journa.

It’s incredibly frustrating to have such shitty social networks—mostly because defenses of them end up so utterly annoying, straw man-ish, and moralizing.

@jny Linode. Apparently AWS can get expensive, though I’m using S3 for image storage.

@jny about 3 hours to get the rudimentary shit done. Then 4 hours of debugging. Also, $5/month and a fun domain name! All in all not bad. I’m also no devops wizard.

@jny Behind all gallows humor is a gallows, I’ve heard.

Also, lol yes.

@jny @wallace images not uploading or unable to follow folks, for example.

Things should be a-working now, more or less...
