San Francisco police seek permission for its robots to use deadly force


'The San Francisco Police Department is currently petitioning the city's Board of Supervisors for permission to deploy robots to kill suspects that law enforcement deems a sufficient threat ...'

What could possibly go wrong?

An #introduction might start by noting my decades of work since MIT in tech arenas like symbolic math, programming language design & standardization, hypertext & traditional typography, hospital scheduling, and genetics. But is this topics list the sum of me?

I aspire to be someone of soul, of heart, of conscience--someone who puts back into the world more than he's taken. #Writing is often my tool. See my personal web site at https://nhplace.com/kent.

At netsettlement.blogspot.com I've blogged about Social #Justice, the #Climate Crisis, #Politics, #Privacy, #Ethics, Impact of #Technology on #Society, #Philosophy, #Language, and even #Love. Usually in essay form, though sometimes #story or #poetry.

I speak #English natively, #Spanish passably, and self-taught #Portuguese clumsily.


Features Mastodon desperately needs imo:
- MUCH better search functionality
- Easier way to find and add people across servers
- Quote posting!
- Link previews

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software? Code paid by the people should be available to the people!

Buster Open-Source Extension for Chromium, Firefox, Edge and Opera Browsers: Captcha Solver for Humans


Bild/Foto
Buster is a browser extension which helps you to solve difficult captchas by completing reCAPTCHA audio challenges using speech recognition. Challenges are solved by clicking on the extension button at the bottom of the reCAPTCHA widget.

The incredible irony of this is that a reCAPTCHA is supposed to test for a real human, but an extension can be used to automate this verification!

The many branches of the Fediverse and why Mastodon is only one of many other connected social networks https://gadgeteer.co.za/the-many-branches-of-the-fediverse-and-why-mastodon-is-only-one-of-many-other-connected-social-networks/

#introduction I'm a software engineer interested in the intersection of #science and #philosophy, #ethics, #climate, #anthropocene, and #politics of a #lifeworthliving.

I love to think about the philosophy of #biology and the biology of philosophy, or similar circles. This includes #technology and anthropocene, #evolution and #revolution, or politics and #neuroscience (#freewill). You get the idea. My view is heavily tainted by the continental tradition of #dialectics, skewed to #realism.


For all the talk of Mastodon being better about harassment it doesn’t seem like it has any features ppl who deal w/ tons of harassment have been asking Twitter for:
* Mass blocking capabilities
* Ability to block/limit anyone who likes a specific post or follows a specific person
* Ability to see only notifications from mutuals, etc.

Can you even limit ur replies to mutuals only on here? Doesn’t seem like you can?
