Creating ready-to-use AWS Security Groups using Terraform Registry, Named Groups, and Named Rules

Creating and maintaining AWS security groups using Terraform has become even more accessible, thanks to community-built modules on Terraform Registry. Today I want to show you two particular features of one of the modules called Named Groups and Named Rules.

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

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?
