A number of people have come out of the woodwork to ask me how they can "Help" the Internet Archive.
3 years ago, I wrote an essay about that. It holds up nicely:
Version 5 of Midjourney's commercial AI image-synthesis service can produce photorealistic images at a quality level that some AI art fans are calling creepy and "too perfect." https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2023/03/ai-imager-midjourney-v5-stuns-with-photorealistic-images-and-5-fingered-hands/?utm_brand=ars

Today is a sad day JetNet bought ADSBExchange. The data source for ElonJet/bots not to worry as other networks will be coming up. If you feed ADSBexchange we encourage you to stop feeding. ADSBExchange was founded on the principles of hobbyists community not for profit PE firms. https://www.jetnet.com/news/jetnet-acquires-ads-b-exchange.html
We have a mobile phone and DSLR that can zoom on Moon and get Crystal clear pics. Yet, when it comes to UFOs (or stupid balloons), we still get blurry images and videos. For once in my lifetime, I would like to see something clear and not blurry image/video. Is that too much to ask?
I took a wrong turn somewhere today and now I'm pondering ways to use SQLite on S3 for bad ideas.
Biden's #SOTU tech priorities focused on #antitrust and #privacy legislation. Here he calls for the passage of legislation to crack down on self-preferencing, like #AICOA. More context here: https://time.com/6253755/biden-big-tech-state-of-the-union-2023/

For all non-developers: access to friend-finding tools cannot be assumed to last until the February 9th deadline. So use them while you still can.
Tools that are currently still available that help you find your Twitter friends:

Getting started back up working on some Janky code for the afternoon!
I hope you'll come hang out a bit

Signal Backups :ablobcatcry:
While I'm thrilled that the community has stepped up to provide some tooling for what #Signal is lacking, this is neither sufficient nor does it have any bearing on the lack of consideration for their users that @signalapp is showing. It would be a simple matter to provide an option to "export all" or "export #SMS only", but obviously they would prefer to lock-in users' data.
Why do I want to export "my" entire message history? Well... besides it being my data and as a consumer, I should have control over my own data. Here's an example of why below.
When I did my export last night, it only grabbed the SMS messages. I now have a LOT of threads that are split in half between #SMS and half #Signal messages due to a user joining or closing their signal account over the many many years SMS has been supported.
So I'm being forced to effectively split a large portion of my past message history between two applications with zero ability to take a full export of "my data".
This feels very much like a lock-in tactic or holding my data for ransom more so than anything that will actually make the signal ecosystem better.
