I wish LeCun would read some Weizenbaum and learn some humility from the greats of his field.
Being good at something like he definitely is, doesn't mean that the thing you're good at is automatically also good and beneficial. And it definitely doesn't mean the thing you're good at doesn't deserve criticism and be subject to ethical considerations.
What a grade-A asshole.

Tweet from Yann LeCun

"I propose the creation of the DeTuring Award. It will be granted to people who are consistently trying (and failing) to deter society from using computer technology by scaring everyone with imaginary risks. As the Turing Award is the Nobel Prize of computing, the DeTuring Award is the IgNobel Prize of computing."

Well, this certainly put a smile on my face. #ShufflesTheClown

Films to inspire folks who think they don't have what it takes to make legendary cinema! Films for living legends who hope to live long after other living legends have been forgotten! Or at least a film. It got made, everybody got paid. Mostly. We hope.

A rough outline of the NH legislative year:
January-February: committee hearings for bills from your own chamber, plus full-chamber votes on which bills to send over to the other chamber
March-April: crossover (hearings for bills from the other chamber), plus more full-chamber votes on stuff
May-June: full-chamber votes continue, including ones for committees of conference, to resolve differences between how the two chambers may have amended bills differently
July-August: break (generally a good time to do research on ideas for new bills)
1 week in September: filing period for new legislation
September-October: retained bills hearings (bills that were put off earlier in the year)
October-November: redraft requests, signoffs, and cosponsor signons for legislation filed during the filing period, plus campaign season
December: organizational stuff for the upcoming year
"Veto Day" (when we vote on whether or not to override the governor's vetos) can be scheduled any time from September to December, and sometimes even early into the January of the following year.
Hopefully this is helpful for people hoping to know when the best times to ask me for things are!

Content warning: NFL

Really gotta be feeling sorry for both defensive teams, the QB’s are tearing them apart. Beautiful to watch - but if either side can manage a stop, that might just win it.

This guy, Geet Duggal, is really worth following on #Medium. I don't know where else he hangs out, but dang he write well! And what he says makes sense.
Just read his piece on task management in #Obsidian, and picked up some good tips.

Been working on the archive of my mum's stuff on the #monotropism site.
There are a couple of glaring omissions, and a few more things it would be good to get in there, but it's feeling like it's not too far from complete now...

The feeling you get after reviving with GNU/Linux a computer discarded by others "because it is no longer useful". That feeling.
