The "shitty technology adoption curve" describes the arc of oppressive technology: when you have a manifestly terrible idea, you can't ram it down the throats of rich, powerful people who get to say no. You have to find people whose complaints no one will listen to.


Yesterday, Canadian Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains introduced the Digital Charter Implementation Act, which proposes a national privacy standard for Canada akin to Europe's GDPR.

The law is complex and will undergo many changes, but its two most salient features are:

I. The right to refuse to have your data collected and used; and

II. The right to have your data deleted if you change your mind.

With still penalties for companies that don't comply.


If somebody could just hire me to write little command line scripts in Python for the rest of my life, that would be great thanks

Worked on my automation scripts a bit over the weekend, including this new one for creating directory structures for projects

Me at work: I have never seen this box before, what’s in it?

*opens box*

Ah, a single large chip labeled “lucifer”. It’s 2020, what could possibly go wrong.

Covid denial rampant on birdsite. There's a denialist/conspiracist response on basically everything related to Covid, and in some cases it's 100% of the responses.

In 1998, Bill Clinton signed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act into law. At the time, most of the attention was on Section 512 - AKA "notice and takedown," which absolves platforms from liability for users' infringement provided they respond quickly to removal demands.

Missed another day of (I think that's the third day I've done nothing). I'll make up for it tomorrow I hope!

I need more colours so I'm thinking I might switch to a preset palette for now so I can get on with other things. This one's Sheltzy32. It's still got pure black so I can stick to roughly the same look.

Should probably do some Halloween pixels this year 🤔 Maybe I'll just pixel the body horror sketches I did last year 😄

Dialogue might look something like this anyway, regardless of what the robot designs end up like, so I can stick with the black "hatched" look (don't mind the blurry text)
