If you're doing any "fun" weekend projects for personal ops, and would like to share with the masses, is a great hashtag to follow and toot under.

Be as descriptive or vague as you like, who knows maybe you'll inspire someone else to explore the wild and wooly world of libreops - operations in the open.

when a company advertises a "machine learning" or AI approach, we should ask them

- what is the model you're using? no, I won't accept that it's proprietary info.
- what is your training set? is the data complete? no, quantity is not good enough. where are the blind spots and how have you consulted with experts in the field to correct them?
- have you received peer review? If not, there's the door. come back when you have.

Psst. Hey. Hey you. We have to whisper this in case the cool kidz hear, but... it's OK to pull your data back from the cloud • The Register

Nah really this was like 6:30 last night. Around 10pm I had the full board wired up with a python flask app to control the relay via gpio.

It's nice, now I need an rpi zero for the controller and I think this is as good as done.

You can't rely on social media validation to believe in yourself as an artist. Those numbers are arbitrary. The algorithm is fickle.

Create with passion, create consistently. You are not aspiring, you are not a wannabe. You are an artist right now. 👊

everyone keeps telling me to go to “the berg hain” while i’m in berlin. listen buddy, i don’t go into any place that sounds like a disney villain lair

Anyone who shits on service jobs and manual labor is not my comrade. Almost of their lives are made possible by service and manual labor

Remember me whining about self esteem? After feeling so low, I pushed myself to the limits in my new art. It was a competition entry and I felt like I'm going to be the best.
Today mods reviewed it, and they said it resemble the reference too much. What?! I have added changes to everything, but keept it close to the reference because your fuckin rules says that the art must resemble original!
Anyway, I myself think the art is good
