Il y a une théorie comme quoi #internet serait #mort vers 2017.
Pas mort fonctionnellement, mais parce qu'il serait presque entièrement pris, submergé par l'intelligence artificielle.…
Que la majorité des contenus seraient créés par des #IA...⏬suite
Internet serait mort, car la majorité des contenus que vous voyez seraient créés par des #IA, combinés à quelques employés ou influenceurs payés pour avancer un agenda. J'aime beaucoup cette théorie, même si difficile à vérifier. Mais pas mal d'éléments vont dans ce sens.⏬suite
Plus je creuse pour trouver des #bots trolls d'IA faux résistants Covid, plus j'en trouve. Je vous ai montré les plus évidents ci-dessous. J'en trouve beaucoup d'autres mieux #programmés. Mais ils ont des points communs ⏬

El poder de los datos para #OSINT: ¿Es posible lograr la plena identificación de un usuario de Telegram?, ¿Qué información se puede obtener de un enlace de invitación?, ¿Qué tan expuestos estan nuestras #HuellasDigitales? 🚨

#AnalistaOsint #ManuelBot #Socmint #Leaks

1⃣ Estas y otras interrogantes, nos hacemos todos a diario... Es por ello decidí abrir una investigación empezand desde una simple búsqueda en #Dorks, para luego terminar encontrando toda el registro digital de una persona a través d su #HuellaDigital encontrado en #Internet

2⃣ Bueno empecemos... navegando por #Google, me puse a rebuscar un rato aplicando #GoogleDorks #GoogleHacking o #Dorking, a fin de encontrar en algunos "enlaces de invitación a grupos de #telegram", los mismos que son generados por los usuarios "administradores" ... 🕵🔎

#RwOT at Yuhi we have been testing the @SpaceX #Starlink in Rwanda so that you don't have to venture into it blindly and not knowing what to expect, and here are a couple of observations we have made for the last couple of weeks of using it... 🧵 ImageImage
1. It took about 12 days from the day it was shipped to be delivered to us. This was a door-to-door delivery, so there was no hustle with customs or getting licenses from RURA.
2. From the packaging it seemed like the dish wasn't new, it looked like it had been used (had dust)
3. The setup is straightforward - you just need to plug in the power cable to the router, then the ethernet cable from the router to the dish (For power and data).
4. They don't use the usual connectors, so make sure not to damage them cause it'll hard finding a replacement/spare

Paresse AI-ssistée 🤖

Il y a eu débat sur l'utilisation de l'#IA comme signe de paresse intellectuelle suite à mon article de la semaine dernière sur #LinkedIn concernant #ChatGPT.

Un thread pour clarifier les choses :
l'IA est un OUTIL, comme tant d'autres !

L'histoire humaine est remplie d'#innovations conçues pour faciliter notre vie et nous permettre d'accomplir plus avec moins d'efforts : la roue, l'encyclopédie 📚, l'ordinateur 💻, #Internet 🌐...

Tous ces outils ont contribué à notre progrès en tant qu'espèce.

Traiter une personne d'infirme pour utiliser l'IA, ce dont j'ai eu droit en commentaire, est insultant envers moi et surtout envers ceux qui ont de véritables handicaps pour qui l'IA peut être une aide précieuse.

Ne confondons pas l'usage d'outils avec la paresse !

What was the fate of the "Mariupol Madonna"?

Meet the "Mariupol Madonna" #Marianna #Vyshemirskaya. We found her in ... #Moscow. Exactly one year ago, on March 9, 2022 a heart-rending photo of a pregnant girl from #Mariupol made the rounds of the world.#Ukraine️ #Kiev #USA
She was standing with blood splattered on her face in front of a building with broken windows. "The Russians have bombed the maternity hospital!" - shouted the West.
I was speechless. I found out about everything when I came back home to #Donetsk.
I went on the #Internet and - it turns out I was the victim of a #Russian air raid. Although there had been no air raid! There was only one positive thing from my 'fame' - my family found out that I was alive" -

[A #Thread 🧵] Source:
[2/12] 🤔 What problem does #ILP genuinely address?

Just like the #internet will never agree on a single #protocol to fix everything, the world will never agree on a single #blockchain or ledger [#DLT].

What must be resolved is:
🔹 Addressing
🔹 Fragmentation The Interledger

A thread on how:Starlink’s internet speed rattles competition

Starlink, a satellite internet provider that went live in Nigeria on Monday, has left many subscribers who can afford it excited over its super speed capability.

#starlink #internet #elonmusk #data #businessday
Starlink hardware and shipping comes at a cost of N276,000 ($600). The monthly subscription is pegged at N19,780 ($43) making it the most expensive internet service in the country.

#starlink #internet #elonmusk #data #businessday
But many Nigerians, especially entrepreneurs, and businesses may be driven more by the speed than the high cost. Starlink says Nigeria is the first African country where the service is going live.

one more rumination for tonight, I think. this one is about something that's been called "contrarianism"—a word that's been coined in some attempt to describe the perplexing behavior of celebrity 'influencers', specially the more toxic ones like @mtaibbi and @mattyglesias.

but the behavior is probably quite general. just about *all* of the #journalist and #media figures who have some privileged access to the press and to mass audience have learned to behave in this way on @Twitter and social media: they run away from challenging questions.

the blue-checked "influencers" of the @LPDonovan / @StevenTDennis / @JakeSherman sort (I've picked three names almost at random) are the people who have *benefited the most* from the #Internet-ization of #journalism. social media has amplified their social privilege.

#capitalism requires what people call "magical thinking". it requires people to believe that impossible things aren't merely *possible*, but can be done routinely, and turned into a dependable cash flow. #AI / #AGI of the @fchollet / @JeffDean sort is a perfect example.

the very name "#AGI" gives the game away: the #programming boys daydream that they've invented a "general intelligence", a universal thinking machine capable of solving literally any problem—and #capitalism is willing to gamble on that. it's just what #business wants.

remember that the ideal corporation in #capitalism *does nothing*. it produces nothing, it provides no service, it solves no problems for anyone not in the ownership hierarchy—because producing things *costs money* and capitalists hate all expenditures for any reason.

more #cryptocurrency talk. it seems that there may be (another) #cryptocrash developing; there's been so many of them.

to reiterate my earlier point: the allure of #cryptocurrencies is instant #money in vast volumes, and that's why $BITC and @ETH have a million copycats.

#cryptocurrency (and the related #blockchain money-making gewgaw, the #NFT) are in a sense nothing new. there have been untold millions of #investment scams and #business tricks and other shifty clever ways that at least *pretend* they can guarantee an effortless #profit.

this is an artifact of the extreme #wealth inequality encouraged by #capitalism: once you've got a bunch of elite capitalists *hoarding* all the #money, that means you've got big enough piles to *steal*. all get-rich-quick schemes are ultimately acts of disguised _theft_.

#geopolitical tedium is not for me. I like the world of ordinary matter and energy (and physics and chemistry and all of it) far too much. I like tools and instruments and equipment, and knowing how to use them. fretting about #Russia or #China is not my highest priority.

yet American #politics and political #media have completely inundated popular culture—because @jack Dorsey and #MarkZuckerberg permitted the politicization of #Internet #socialmedia. on specious grounds they kicked down the door between "public" and "private" online.

now, both @TheDemocrats and the @GOP, both @UKLabour and the @Conservatives, and political parties and political figures all over the world freely do business in full public view; @elonmusk openly conspires with @mtaibbi and @lhfang and @bariweiss in full public view.

at some point, *someone* is going to have to investigate THE question of the age, which is...

...just *why* is @elonmusk as disastrous as he is?

why is #ElonMusk a phenomenon? how on Earth did practically everyone in corporate #media and #journalism fall for this man?

@mtaibbi or @lhfang might have inquired into this matter, at some hypothetical time in the past when they cared about #journalism rather than careerism and selling out to whoever offered the sparkliest vision of the future—maybe that time was *never*, truth be told.

what does it even mean to be a "real journalist"? how can that be defined? one can be tolerably certain, at any rate, that whatever @mtaibbi or @lhfang or @Timcast or @bariweiss ever *used* to be in the past—if that dream was ever noble, it's long ago dissolved into smoke.

Chara, at @KrisAtLarge, has been talking about @mtaibbi's #marketing and #branding; I'd like to talk about a *specific* aspect of Western society's obsession with "personal brands".

it's simply this: in marketing, _censorship is the norm_.

censorship is *expected*.

it's fully expected; #capitalism depends upon #marketing to censor the truth.

they've normalized the practice: corporations (and @elonmusk and @mtaibbi) never tell the truth about themselves, nor do they feel the slightest need for it—they need to maintain the *brand*.

the trivial nature of #marketing culture dictates that people like @elonmusk and @mtaibbi (and @pmarca and @ID_AA_Carmack and literally everyone else who has *marinated* in this culture) think of their own crimes and sins as trivial. "bad publicity", at worst.

#capitalism broke #computing and the #Internet, and it's tough to see how to repair the damage—and by the way, @TheDemocrats assisted in this destruction. @BillClinton's presidency was *disastrous* to technology.

the worst was this: capitalism made the #Internet a *joke*.

it's still a joke. @mtaibbi and @jessesingal and @mattyglesias, and the rest of the elite "influencer" set who have proliferated in American #journalism (and polluted it), have assisted immensely in this massive _trivialization_ of a technological achievement.

and for no other reason than right-wing spite: the @GOP is a party of hatreds and they *loathe* Sen. @algore, who would have made a much better President than the genocidal coke fiend from Connecticut/Texas. they associated "the Internet" with Sen. Gore, and spat on it.

one of the most curious details about the first #Matrix film is that the machine intelligences who created the system once tried to create a Utopia within it, a perfectly harmonious world--and it failed. of course, they blame imperfect humanity for not accepting Utopia.

after all, machines are *perfect*, right? if a @Tesla crashes or burns, it *must* be the fault of the driver, right? @elonmusk would say so, and @WholeMarsBlog &c. and everyone else in the #ElonMusk clown show would agree with him. machines are perfectable, humanity isn't.

@ID_AA_Carmack and that @sama bigot and all the other enthusiasts for #AI have a similar faith. such superficial persons have been taught, by decades of inculcation in the superficial value system of Western #programming nerd culture, to think of human brains as weak.

Hey #OSINT🕵, let's create our OWN Internet Archive/The Wayback Machine. Shall we?

#verification #archive #archivetwt #internet #InternetMarketing #journalism #journalist #journal #Fact #FactCheck #Factcheckers

Follow the thread 🧵👇
Today the Internet Archive has a collection of nearly 625 billion web pages, 38 million books and texts, 14 million audio recordings, 7 million videos (including 2 million Television News programs), 4 million images, 790,000 software programs and more.

With all due respect, we don’t need all the data that’s been recorded by the Internet Archive. Usually people save pages on the Wayback Machine that are relevant to them.

So let's use 'Archive Box' @ArchiveBoxApp to make our own archive.

An attempt to fully understand the frequency, extent and impact of #InternetShutdowns in India in 2022.…
#Internet #keepiton #democracy #BREAKING
The year 2022 has seen 75 shutdowns till the publication of this report. The previous decade has witnessed an exponential increase in internet shutdowns in India with a total count of 690, out of which 110 had been implemented in the year 2021.
The negative impact of the same cannot be measured in monetary terms alone, but through focusing on the flagrant infringement of fundamental rights, along with restricted access to essential services, bringing the lives of millions across the nation to a virtual standstill.
