It’s extremely thoughtful of the Chinese government to provide such a vivid demonstration in Hong Kong of the risks to human rights and democracy of “smart” cities, while other cities still have time to change course (I won’t hold my breath, though) https://twitter.com/hkchrislau/status/1165162221019598849
because we as a species were so lonely
and wanted friends so bad
we built robots who have beat-up hulls & metal brains
and we told them hey you wanna go exploring
of course they did because we had made them in our own image

the robots can say when they made us
they called us discovery & curiosity & spirit
they must have thought that was important
and they told us to tell you hello

So if undeciphered characters are ok for Unicode: Who wants to help petition for a set of Voynich manuscript symbols?
Rough day. Erratic was just sent back to federal prison. In essence, the judge set an unusual new precedent: hackers are considered so dangerous to the the *economy* that they must be locked up.

In the UK, facial recognition used by the police was found to have an 81% inaccuracy rate: 81% of faces matched were false positives! Say NO to facial recognition. https://twitter.com/cendemtech/status/1164191174569054208
