Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is an autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text. It is the third-generation language prediction model in the GPT-n series created by OpenAI, a for-profit San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research laboratory.[2] GPT-3's full version has a capacity of 175 billion machine learning parameters, which is over two orders of magnitude greater than that of its predecessor, GPT-2.[1]:14 GPT-3, which was introduced in May 2020, and is in beta testing as of July 2020,[3] is part of a trend in natural language processing (NLP) systems of pre-trained language representations.[1] Prior to the release of GPT-3, the largest language model was Microsoft's Turing NLG, introduced in February 2020, with a capacity of 17 billion parameters or less than 10 percent compared to GPT-3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPT-3 (more)

Nathan Schneider (born 1984) is a scholar, activist, and journalist. Since 2015, he has been a professor of media studies at the University of Colorado Boulder... Schneider was among the first journalists to cover the Occupy Wall Street movement during its planning stages... Following his reporting on Occupy Wall Street, Schneider began to focus on stories related to co-operative economics. For Vice magazine, he wrote the most complete profile to date of Enric Duran, the Catalan activist and fugitive who founded the Catalan Integral Cooperative and Faircoop.[25] For The Nation, he reported on "How Pope Francis Is Reviving Radical Catholic Economics."[26] He also published a number of articles and interviews on emerging cooperative business models for online platforms. Schneider has been a leading advocate for platform cooperativism. In November 2015, together with New School professor Trebor Scholz, Schneider co-organized a two-day conference billed as "a coming-out party for the cooperative Internet."[27] Over 1,000 people attended, including figures such as legal scholar Yochai Benkler, New York City Council Member Maria del Carmen Arroyo, and Zipcar founder Robin Chase. This led to the publication of a book, which Schneider co-edited with Scholz, Ours to Hack and to Own: The Rise of Platform Cooperativism, a New Vision for the Future of Work and a Fairer Internet, published in 2016 by OR Books. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan_Schneider (more)

Darius Kazemi: How to run a small social network site for your friends. Since August 2018 I have run a social network site called Friend Camp for about 50 of my friends. I think Friend Camp is a really nice place, and my friends seem to agree that it has enriched our lives. I'd like to see more places like Friend Camp on the internet, and this document is my attempt to provide some practical guidance as to how you might run a social network site like this. (more)

Lion Kimbro book in 2004 about keeping a NoteBook as a Reflective Thinker. (more)

InterWiki/CommunityWiki cult leader :) (more)

Lion Kimbro is revisiting his preference for a paper NoteBook (cf How To Make A Complete Map Of Every Thought You Think). Presently, I'm porting lessons learned from paper-based notekeeping to computerized notekeeping. I think the biggest idea is shifting from "capture" to "document reworking.".. I noticed that one of the great strengths of the notekeeping system I've been using since 2009-01-24, about 8 months now, is that it places thoughts in good sensible locations. (This system, by the way, is the subject of a chapter in RonHaleEvans' new book - MindPerformanceHacks 2, still in editing. I may just write a whole book on it, itself, at some point.)... But what we really need to be able to do, is to get from the "collection and capture" realm to the "SenseMaking" level. All those links in the given tag need to be structurable, either by writing text, or spatial positioning and iconography, or - ideally, both... Where one of the key strengths of computerized systems really comes to the fore: The ability to Delete. I don't mean "to delete" in terms of forgetting, but rather, in the sense of reshaping the clay, applying the eraser, remaking what was made before into an evolved form. History is nice, but secondary to the capacity to edit. It is very hard to delete on paper, and to edit by anything but addition on paper... Why did I (and others) make this mistake? I blame the ethic against deleting data. Since computers can store everything, we see it as practically immoral to destroy any data. Obscuring older data has a similar sensibility to it. So we get logs and logs of data. Yes, there are versioning systems, but somehow, we do not really use them in our notekeeping.

Every creator should keep a NoteBook like a scientist does. (more)

Get Your War On is a series of satirical comic strips by David Rees about political topics. Initially, the comic concerned the effects of the September 11 attacks on New York City, but it quickly switched its focus to more recent topics, in particular the War on Terror. The strip debuted on October 9, 2001. From a technical standpoint the strips are crude, being assembled from about a dozen simple clip art pictures of office workers (with a few exceptions, most notably super robot Voltron) that are repeated, often in the same strip. Almost all are in red on a white background. There is an emphasis on dialogue, with little action. Highly disillusioned and cynical, it is heavily laden with expletives. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Get_Your_War_On (more)
