Github just announced their "copilot": https://copilot.github.com/

What do you think about it? To me it sounds like someone was upset that programmers tend to enjoy the creative side of their job so they outsourced it to an AI. But don't worry, you won't loose your job, you are still useful for debugging and fixing the randomly generated mess your AI overlord produces in the name of efficiency.

I’m kinda spooked but I don’t mind. I knew that this would happen, it’s why I shy away from anything that’s not self-hosted so I’m not a part of it. Kinda excited to see what it brings since you can’t really stop it.

I wonder if it will catch on, writing specifications in natural language and then debugging the randomly generated code sounds a lot more effort than just writing the code yourself. At least when you are debugging code written by another human you can assume that they had a reason to write the code the way it is, but figuring out what the generated code actually does, is that correct, and if not, how to make it correct, sounds a lot harder.

It makes me wonder what kind of work the people excited about this do, where this is the actual bottleneck. I know that even if the AI could write the same code as I do, it wouldn't drastically change my job, because that's not the actually hard part of software engineering in my field.

Does it terrify anyone else that the ludovico technique from A Clockwork Orange is 100% possible in real life.\

And does anyone know a time in history or a government who use this technology or a technology similar to it in real life?

This is the Wearable Computing group, MIT Media Lab in 1995. Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) were close to impossible to get so most of it was hacked out of (analog!) display kits, videocam displays or expensive entertainment headsets. Fast forward 20 years and affordable HMDs are still a pipe dream. The bags carry the Single Board Computers and batteries. They are similar to the Pi/Arduino/Beagle, which are widely available these days and very much affordable. Input is usually done by a chording keyboard like the BAT or Twiddler (Jeld by the guy far right. I believe the company that makes it is still around.)

If you are interested, look for archives of the USENET group comp.sys.wearables.

I have this bizarro sketch illustration from 1988's Soviet home multimedia computer system design proposal. It looks exactly like the guys in OP.
The writings on right panel say:
Processors (memory) lol
Videoeffectors
Audioeffectors
Processors (receiver, memory) <-probably describing the antenna thing

The left panel is a plan of an apartment/house with rooms described clockwise as follows:
—–
Bus ducts
Audio-video <- Looks like a study, home office with generic video conferencing setup
—–
High-distance communication receivers
Learning (Schooling) <- child's room

This thread is to discuss anprim, ecofash, any ecological or primitive ideology.

I think, generally, primitivist ideologies are healthy for both people and nature. I worried though about primitivist ideologies making the culture which take them up defenseless in any form of foreign conflict. as a result a highly suicidal choice for a society to take.

Got any points about it, put them here. If you think that any one of these ideologies are good or bad talk about it. Any philosophy about it put it here.

I guess primitivist views, especially if we just talk about just a little views (not like in completely being a retarded apple consumer) are very good for the individual. If that would be the case, the capitalist system, wouldn't just greenwash everything, but maybe actually destroying less nature. Maybe even look for ways to reduce plastic instead of just LARPing plastic as ecofriendly paper. But a full primitivist ideology sounds really retarded to me and reminds me of (where was it? maybe) kambodia, where that primitivist ruler killed all scholars and stuff like that.

It isn't good for keeping the achievements of a culture, now does it. That is a major complaint of it. The first man to discover the boom stick will rule over man. A story extremely foolish follow through it. Maybe a similar principle could be used to make a better ideology that isn't completely doomed from the start.

Yeah b..but what's the alternative? It's not like it's completely open to everyone. Isn't it one of those "hypothetically speaking, there's a loophole, but the effort to use it is so damn high, they wouldn't use it for someone who's just lurking around"-kinda thing?
That obviously does not make it better in any way, but what else are we going to do? You see, the wired is ded as a ded cat. We know it, everywhere we go, we meet people that know it. But what are we going to do about it? I'm a noob, I unironically can't come up with something as of now, ask me in 3 years again, maybe I'll come up with an alternative concept, but are there already any?

NetHogs is a small ncurses network monitoring tool. It will list connection speed or amount of data sent/recieved by process. It's not without it's quirks, but it's a handy tool.

I have htop, nethogs and sensors running constantly. Very handy resources. Also, Id like to recommend gallery-dl and image-scraper. Very useful for archiving images. gallery-dl has a set number of websites it works on but offers more features like login capability and json scraping info whereas image-scraper is more of a multipurpose tool which can dl from anywhere but has less features.

I think Cronenberg's genre confusion is over the fact he does biopunk. Biopunk, and in turn Cronen, have the same themes as cyberpunk, but instead of focusing on cyber parts they explore DNA modification and biology.
