What would you give up to save this #planet?


It's always so easy to demand that the rich should give up their yachts and private jets because you're not affected by it yourself. Those who don't have a car and live in the city demand the abolition of the car without thinking about the people in the countryside. Those who don't use AI and streaming are calling for data centers to be shut down to save power.

But what if it affected us? How much #Internet #bandwidth could we sacrifice if it meant saving the planet?

(Who now writes in the comments I only use text messages for chatting so I don't care about the bandwidth. I would like to congratulate him because he still has not understood what it's all about.)

Why isn't #Twitter (X) dead yet? #ElonMusk has done everything he can to bury the #platform, hasn't he?


In my opinion, it's the journalists who are treated like dirt (💩) by #Musk but just can't let go of the platform.

That's partly because they prefer to make headlines with #clickbait and scandals and still link diligently on Twitter. In this way, they give the platform relevance in the media and make Musk's rants seem like important discourse. On the other hand, it is because the average journalist is apparently too incompetent to discover new platforms for himself.

I'm probably doing an injustice to the little journalist who is just trying to make ends meet somehow. But it's amazing that the big publishers are so inflexible or have made themselves so dependent on Twitter that they can't or won't switch.

Some "bold" #future #technology #prediction⁣s for the next 50 years:

There will be no permanently staffed lunar base.

Nuclear fusion will not be an energy source worth reckoning.

There will be no general artificial intelligence.

Objections?


#Amazon restricts authors from self-publishing more than three #books a day after #AI concerns


Source: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2023/sep/20/amazon-restricts-authors-from-self-publishing-more-than-three-books-a-day-after-ai-concerns

The new sets of rules come after Amazon removed suspected AI-generated books that were falsely listed as being written by the #author #JaneFriedman. Earlier this month, books about #mushroom foraging listed on Amazon were reported as likely to have been AI-generated and therefore containing potentially dangerous advice. AI-generated travel books have also flooded the site.


The AI #attack on #humanity has begun. Reviews as well as books are coming under the #control of AI. Soon it will no longer be possible to buy books from humans, because they can no longer be found in the confusion.

Or we're all on the #Titanic, only most of us trapped below deck. On the lowest decks, they are already fighting for bare survival. On the upper decks, however, they're partying and discussing space tourism.

Maybe we should stop looking for the right #metaphor and finally save this planet.

As usual, Tutemic has an enlighting and surprising take on the Unity game engine controversy - why we must force them to walk this back a 100%, or were all gonna pay dearly in the future.

And I fear that that is distracting from the real #problem here, which is just the burning of #fossil #fuels. It's these planetary criminal companies that are destroying our #civilization.

The #message from #Ecuador is clear: people will #vote to keep #oil in the ground


source: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2023/aug/24/the-message-from-ecuador-is-clear-people-will-vote-to-keep-oil-in-the-ground

The #referendum result obliges the state oil company to dismantle operations – 12 drilling platforms and 225 wells that produce up to 57,000 barrels a day – in block 43 of the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini (ITT) project, an area of the Amazon rainforest famed for its ecological diversity, and which is home to two tribes that live in voluntary isolation. With more than 5.4 million votes in favour of halting production and 3.7 million against, this is the most decisive democratic victory against the #fossil #fuel industry in Latin #America and, arguably, the #world.

One #question we have to ask ourselves more and more often in this high-tech #world is, is this real, AI-generated or just heavily photoshopped? And why is this stuff posted if it only triggers #depression among the #youth because of unattainable beauty ideals?
