Hey @ashfurrow

I'm facing some error in pushing tweets using Python:

Validation failed: Text can't be blank

The tweet contains both HTML and i8ln characters. Should I be quoting/escaping/encoding those characters? Any idea why this might be happening?

enough code for tonight. time to do absolutely nothing :blobcoffee:

I just watched the documentary "We need to talk about AI".

Ethical implications of sex robots with legal rights is disturbing, and how sex robots desensitize other human interactions.

We seem to want AI because humans are irrational, war-mongering, profit-hoarding, etc. To me it sounds like the failure of democracy and large-scale human org systems is being used as a use-case for giving robots control.

Sounds irresponsible, like a child wanting his mummy back because they screwed up bad.

@ayushsharma22 ha I thought Bill Nighy was great, although he wasnโ€™t exactly what Iโ€™d had in mind when I read about Slartibartfast for the first time.

Also you said it so well, sci-fi really is one of those all-encompassing genres! Iโ€™m so glad our discussion inspired you to clean up your own list in Notion! I use Notion a lot too, let me know if you ever want to swap templates or just talk shop!

Hi all.

I saw Joe Rogan's podcast with Bret Weinstein today.

He's talking about some protest at Evergreen State College and something about shutting down STEM. Apparently Richard Dawkins and Evolutionary Biology is involved somehow.

I feel like I've been living under a rock, but I don't know what this is about. Can someone enlighten me please?

Thanks.

Philip K Dick: Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, does not go away.

What out there in society is in the process of having this tested? What else can we try to stop believing in if no longer believing in these things ends up working out?

my project `dat-gateway` has been in an infuriating state of flux for many months because it is an application context.

"a gateway? an application context? what?" you say, like a reasonable human being.

thanks to the horror of javascript, websites are applications, and the browser grants them powers based on their context. a gateway sharing archives under a single domain allows the web apps in those archives to read each other's data, because the browser assumes that one domain == one owner. thus a proper gateway cannot use a single domain, but must wildcard archive domain names. setting up this wildcard has been an excruciating process that i still haven't finished, and i'm fucking fed up with it. DNS is a trap.

i reject that websites should be applications, or that we should be building additional application contexts. software is SO BAD and feeding the monster won't fix it. all we want to do is share files, anyway.

Has anyone here used Qt5? I'm using Python-Qt5 and I want my program to load a URL and wait for an HTML element in the view before returning HTML. Any ideas?
