Tiling Window Manager Thread

Let's have a tiling wm thread.

Ask questions, post experiences, recommendations, tips, share configs, etc..

I've been trying out wmii and this 9p filesystem gimmick is really neat.

The tiling kinda sucks though because everything is in columns and also the floating windows are borderless.

It'd be nice if there was a more modern wm with a filesystem control interface.

Why don't they come up with less autistic names for privacy-respecting search engines? No average computer user is going to remember "searx.me", but they will remember search engines with catchy names like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. This means that they will USE Google, Bing, and Yahoo, and, if they have even heard of "searx.me", forget about it quickly. If you really care about privacy, you need to make privacy as easy, if not easier, than non-privacy.

An effective name goes a long way, because it's free advertisement. When I search for something online, I "google" it. I'm not going to "searx" (pronounced SEER-ecks) anything.

Names should be one or two syllables long, with nice sounding vowels (i.e. no "ecks"), so that they can easily roll off the tounge. Think about other immensely successful software: GNOME, GIMP, Firefox, Windows, iPhone, etc. If you want to defeat the botnet, you have to THINK ABOUT THE AVERAGE PERSON.

AI Designed to Tell Humans How to Vote

According to Kimera Systems CEO Mounir Shita, his company's Nigel artificial general intelligence is meant to serve as a "personal adviser" to its user, learning from his or her day-to-day routine.

http://www.trunews.com/article/ai-designed-to-tell-humans-how-to-vote

A computing company is developing an artificial intelligence named Nigel that will be able to tell living human beings how they should vote based on their personal ideology. Billed as the “world’s first real artificial general intelligence,” or AGI, Nigel was developed by the Oregon-based Kimera Systems to turn “smart devices” into “intelligent devices.” The AGI learns on its own just by “observing” its individual user’s day-to-day routines and activities, thereby adapting itself to his or her personal needs. The AGI launched as an application for Android operating systems about a year ago, and is meant to serve as a “personal adviser” by making recommendations based on logical assumptions it has learned from its user. This means that if the user exhibits traits that suggest he or she is of a particular political affiliation, the AGI will even make voting suggestions based on that ideology. Kimera Systems is marketing Nigel to device manufacturers, network operators, and content providers as a means to “distribute intelligence across an entire network.” According to the company’s description:

>Nigel enabled devices are not limited to simply capturing and sending sensor data to a centralized server controlled by someone else. Nigel enables the device itself to facilitate intelligent connections, value added services and intelligent assistance to the user … Network providers are not limited to simply providing pipes that enable others to provide value added services. Nigel enabled networks are fundamental to the ability to identify and facilitate intelligent connections between devices, data, and users … Nigel is all about providing the right information at the right time to each and every user. Content providers using Nigel’s [application program interfaces] can automatically have their information delivered to the user, without users having to discover and install their app from an app store. Nigel enables content to be discovered, personalized and delivered to the user without any user intervention.

The goal is to have a Nigel-type AGI embedded into every “smart device,” allowing for “seamless and secure” communication so that all devices interact with specific users based upon their distinct personalities, preferences, and situations.

Does number of Active ISPs = Active Users? It feels like a weird way of displaying it.

What did you do today?

Pi-Hole

Anon, why aren't you using DNS based adblocking? Why aren't you blocking the ads before they even reach your machines?

You don't even need to install that ad blocking bloatware with Pi-Hole, and it can protect ALL of your devices on the network.

Still seeing some ads that get through because you didn't actively update the blacklists? Install Adnauseam to fuck ad networks over and waste their money while also blocking the ads.

Why did he have to set programming back by 20 years?

So I finally gave in and bought my first smartphone.

I was going through the privacy policy, and they're saying they will gather and store information such as any voice command I use (which will also be used and stored by an unnamed third party service provider), and gather and store information about my wifi connection and nearest cellular tower?

Is this normal for smartphones? Does no one care? I just wanted a nifty phone that let me do cool things on the go.

Is Vim's autistic way worth it?

Shill Vim to me

I want to use Vim, because it is open source, not bloated, good plugin system, battle tested (maintained long period of time).

But I don't care about Vim's autistic shortcuts / modal editing. I don't care if it is more efficient/productive. I just want to use it because everything else is shittier.

Shill me Vim. Why should I embrace autism and gitgut?

Is is a good idea to get involved with Rust?

Hi, /tech/.

After years and years of webdev I've decided that I need a change of pace. This time I want to manage memory myself like all other big boys. As a web developer I've naturally searched for newest, hottest tech and discovered rust.

On one side it has a lower barrier to entry than C++ - it's smaller, doesn't suffer from having several standards and probably has a vision behind its design.

But on the other its community seems to have a bit of SJW infestation and that's not something I want to deal with in open-source project. It's even worse because their crate infrastructure is centralized and managed by same people.

So how bad is it? Should I expect to see Rust project going down the drain in a couple of years because of political grandstanding?

You know, it would be really neat if 8chan had something like 4chan-X+Oneechan. 8chan-X hasn't been touched in quite time and it has never really compared to 4chanX or OneeChan in all the very useful and aesthetic features it provides.

GOOGLE Admits 'Fake Traffic'...

Google Issuing Refunds to Advertisers Over Fake Traffic, Plans New Safeguard

Some advertisers question level of refunds, want more details about fraudulent traffic

https://archive.fo/QiZAA

Google is issuing refunds for ads that ran on websites with fake traffic, people familiar with the situation said, as the web giant develops a tool to give marketers more transparency about the ads they buy through its platform.

In the past few weeks, the Alphabet Inc. unit has informed hundreds of marketers and ad agency partners about the issue with invalid traffic, known in the industry as “ad fraud.” The ads were bought using the company’s DoubleClick Bid Manager over the course of a few months this year, primarily in the second quarter.

Google’s refunds amount to only a fraction of the cost of the ads served to invalid traffic, which has left some advertising executives unsatisfied, the people familiar with the situation said. Google has offered to reimburse its “platform fee,” which ad buyers said typically ranges from about 7% to 10% of their total purchase.

The company says this is appropriate because it doesn’t control the rest of the money spent. Typically, advertisers use DoubleClick Bid Manager to target audiences across vast numbers of websites in seconds by connecting to dozens of online ad exchanges, marketplaces that connect buyers and publishers through real-time auctions.

The ad spending flows through to the exchanges. The problems arise when ads run on publisher sites with fraudulent traffic, including those where clicks are generated by software programs known as “bots” instead of humans. This is an issue of growing concern to marketers. It is difficult to recoup the money paid to those sites when the issue is discovered too late.

Advertisers often receive small credits from Google and their other ad-tech vendors when they detect discrepancies, but in this case, for some buyers, the instance of fraud discovered was larger than usual.

It’s the latest evidence of how the complexity of the digital advertising ecosystem—an industry where marketers and ad sellers are separated by layers of middlemen and automation—can cause tensions between Madison Avenue and big players like Google. Just a few months ago, some marketers suspended their campaigns from Google’s YouTube after revelations their ads appeared next to hateful or otherwise unsavory videos. YouTube has taken steps to assuage marketers’ concerns, and many brands have now returned to the platform. Ad agencies, too, have battled with Google to let them access more of its extensive data to help them improve how ads are targeted and measure whether they are effective.

Scott Spencer, director of product management for Google, acknowledged that refunds have been paid, but he declined to provide a dollar figure for the amount being returned. Some ad buyers said the refund amounts range from “less money than you would spend on a sandwich” to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Some agencies and advertisers were affected more than others, depending on their level of spending during the period and the types of ads they bought.

“Today, we can’t disclose the information about third parties,” Mr. Spencer said. “So when we aren’t able to catch invalid traffic before it impacts our advertisers and we’re unable to refund their media spend, it hurts us, even if we’re not responsible.”

Google is working on a fix it hopes will provide some clarity over which technology providers in the ad-buying chain are responsible for issuing refunds. It is also working on technology to ensure advertisers automatically receive a full credit back from Google and its partners if incidents occur.

The company said it is entering discussions with the 100-plus exchanges, ad networks and publishers that DoubleClick Bid Manager plugs into, asking them to display to ad buyers whether they are willing to refund the entire media spend if ad-fraud instances occur. Buyers could then opt to filter out the sources of inventory that don’t have such a policy.

Mr. Spencer said Google expects “high rates of adoption” among exchanges, and that the ones it had spoken to so far had been “very supportive” of the effort.

Another point of contention among those receiving refunds is that they haven’t been given details about where their ads ended up or specific details about the exploits the fraudsters used, so that advertisers and agencies can apply their own safeguards in the future.

“We need to be very careful about commenting on or discussing specifics about bots or our detection,” Mr. Spencer said. “Often fraudsters will change their approaches and strategies based on our public comments.”

Updates

0.4.10 - 2017-06-27

>Ipfs 0.4.10 is a patch release that contains several exciting new features, bugfixes and general improvements. Including new commands, easier corruption recovery, and a generally cleaner codebase.

Features:

>Add support for specifying the hash function in ipfs add

>Implement ipfs key {rm, rename}

>Implement ipfs shutdown command

>Implement ipfs pin update

>Implement ipfs pin verify

>Implemented experimental p2p commands

0.4.9 - 2017-04-30

>Ipfs 0.4.9 is a maintenance release that contains several useful bugfixes and improvements. Notably, ipfs add has gained the ability to select which CID version will be output.

Features:

>Add support for using CidV1 in 'ipfs add'

tl;dr for Beginners

>decentralized P2P network

>like torrenting, but instead of getting a .torrent file or magnet link that shares a pre-set group of files, you get a hash of the files which is searched for in the network and served automatically

>you can add files to the entire network with one line in the CLI or a drag-and-drop into the web interface

>HTTP gateways let you download any hash through your browser without running IPFS

>can stream video files in mpv or VLC (though it's not recommended unless the file has a lot of seeds)

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person requesting the hash, as opposed to .torrent files/magnets which require both seeders use the same file.

FAQ

>Is it safe?

It's about as safe as a torrent right now, ignoring the relative obscurity bonus. They are working on integration with TOR and I2P. Check out libp2p if you're curious.

>Is it fast?

Finding a seeder can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. It's slowly improving but still requires a fair bit of optimization work. Once the download starts, it's as fast as the peers can offer, just like a torrent.

>Is it a meme?

You be the judge.

It has implementations in Go (meant for desktop integration) and Javascript (meant for browser/server integration) in active development that are functional right now, it has a bunch of side projects that build on it, and it divides important parts of its development (IPLD, libp2p, etc) into separate projects that allow for drop-in support for many existing technologies.

On the other hand, it's still alpha software with a small userbase and has poor network performance.

cloudflare image compressing #2

hello. as mentioned in previous thread by someone else, the previous fix was a bit mixed up. the previous patterns are not the right ones.

- that means: for many links, cloudflare is still lossly compressing image quality.

here is the full list of the current real link patterns that must be added to finally fix image quality compression. (easier way would be to turn off cloudflare image caching, but i think you will not do that. these 24 links need to be added as lossless)

The World Wide Web Consortium’s decision to keep votes about DRM secret and that it censured the EFF for “disclosing even vague sense of a vote” raises concerns.

By Brian Faggioli Bryan Lunduke

>Earlier this summer, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) — the organization responsible for defining the standards that make up the Web — decided to embrace DRM (aka "EME") as a web standard. I wasn’t happy about this. I don’t know many who were.

>Shortly after that, the W3C agreed to talk with me about the issue. During that discussion, I encouraged the W3C to increase their level of transparency going forward — and if there is an appeal of their DRM decision, to make that process completely open and visible to the public (including how individual members of the W3C vote on the issue).

>The appeal happened and has officially ended. I immediately reached out to the W3C to gather some details. What I found out was highly concerning. I’ll include the most interesting bits below, as un-edited as possible.

<“The numerical results will be published to the public shortly. Not the comments which were made in W3C Member space.” — W3C on Twitter

<“Not the individual votes either which were made in W3C Member space.” — W3C on Twitter

>In a nutshell, the appeal has ended, and the W3C will NOT be releasing details on the votes or comments from their membership. (As a side note, membership in the W3C carries a rather hefty price tag.)

>This was clearly disappointing. So, I dug further.

<“... Although the option to share their vote publicly existed, none took it up.” — W3C on Twitter

<“We can't know the thinking — some may not have remembered they could make their vote public, some may have remembered but chosen not to.” — W3C on Twitter

>That’s right. According to the W3C, the option to share vote information publicly was offered, but not one single member wanted to do so. Not. One. This seemed highly unlikely to me, as the EFF, an organization committed to fighting against EME/DRM to become a standard, is one of those W3C members.

>So, I sought double (even triple) confirmation of this.

<“We have explained several times that all members had the explicit option to make their vote public.” — W3C on Twitter

<“It's difficult to understand the confusion here, as it's been said several times. There was a choice when voting to make the results public.” — W3C on Twitter

<“That there was a choice means it was explicit. That it was in the questionnaire members answered meant the choice was given to all members.” — W3C on Twitter

>Well, that’s about as clear as you can get.

Hot adblock creampie in google's tight profits

https://archive.fo/QiZAA

>Alphabet Inc.’s GOOGL -0.30%▲ Google is issuing refunds to advertisers for ads bought through its platform that ran on sites with fake traffic, people familiar with the situation said, as the company develops a tool to give buyers more transparency about their purchases.

>In the past few weeks, Google has informed hundreds of marketers and ad agency partners about the issue with invalid traffic, known in the industry as “ad fraud.” The ads were bought using the company’s DoubleClick Bid Manager.

>Google’s refunds amount to only a fraction of the total ad spending served to invalid traffic, which has left some advertising executives unsatisfied, the people familiar with the situation said. Google has offered to repay its “platform fee,” which ad buyers said typically ranges from about 7% to 10% of the total ad buy.

Have you been doing your part in shitting on corp scum profits?

GNU+TERRORISM

HIT GOOGLE WHERE IT HURTS

So you want to kill google? And not just kill it, fucking demolish it? Three things need to happen. All of Google's money comes from advertising, analytics, and hosting. To kill google we need to drive up their operational costs while lowering their profits.

Fuck with their advertisements

If you have ever worked with adsense before you will know that the one thing they absolutely despise is telling people to click ads. They want people who are actually interested in products to click advertisements, because only they will be persuaded to purchase products. On top of that, companies pay google per click. If they are paying a ton of money and few people are buying their products, they will pull out.

STEP 1: Go on to youtube, google shopping, or anyplace else with adsense ads in private browsing mode on a vpn or proxy.

STEP 2: Click all the ads you possibly can

STEP 3: Hop on a new proxy/vpn/tor circuit, and clear out the browser

STEP 4: Repeat

???????

LOSS OF PROFIT

Fuck with their file storage

Google stores everything you upload, and keeps it there even if it gets "deleted." Storing stuff costs lots of money, and high speed ssd drives to keep it all on aren't cheap. The more you upload, the more they pay.

STEP 1: Choose a platform that allows you to upload files(eg: youtube, drive, gsites, ect)

STEP 2: Get a file that is at or over the maximum file limit

STEP 3: Upload it again, and again, and again, and again

EXTRA STEP: If you are doing youtube make a huge file with a ton of random music, text on the screen, and game footage. Their matching algorithm will have to go through your whole 1hr + video and match everything there for monitization.

??????

LOSS OF PROFIT

Fuck with analytics

Google is so popular in the analytics world because it can show advertisers what type of people are viewing their page (see http://theoutpost.observer/article.php?id=32 for a good explanation). If we can make this data unreliable then people will stop using google services.

STEP 1: Get a huge word dictionary

STEP 2: Make a small script that searches something entirely random every 20 minutes or so

STEP 3: Let it go as long as possible on as many accounts as possible

STEP 4: Go to random pages with tracking on them to give them fucked results

?????

LOSS OF PROFIT

Fuck with the advertisers

If companies think their users won't buy their products because of google then they will pull out and stop funding them. Youtube's budget got slashed when a few guys pulled out, just imagine what would happen if we could get a ton of people to leave.

STEP 1: Get a huge list of "medium" sized advertisers. Companies that are small enough that it is easy to get a message through to them but big enough that they have a large advertising budget.

STEP 2: Get huge volumes of well written emails to them saying that you (a past customer) are highly against google and don't want to purchase from a company that supports them. Talk about the quality of their products and say you don't want to take your business elsewhere. Sweet talk them.

STEP 3: Get fucktons of people to do this. Gamergate style, but bigger.

Mayfly Conspiracy: "Hello $¥£.cpp"

Okay as some of you may have for a while or recently been discussing how coding has become pretty bloated by what you may call pajeets monkey coding..

Well I am wondering if there is an INDUSTRY-driven agenda with technology companies all around to almost ENCOURAGE 512mb "HELLO WORLD" programs to drive production up?

Can they be fabricating a "demand" for larger hard-drives? Larger memory? Etc? The manufacturing companies of all computer components is majority of the beneficiaries.

It's like the same shit with smartphones. They don't allow for easy upgrading of the OS. They rather see you buy a new phone every year even though the older phone is capable is handling and using the newer OS because that makes them more money. Why are we allowing this shit to happen?

I understand it helps us speed our technological advances... but do we really need what we need?

Can we has a discussion on this idea in general and figure out how this might look in a visual sense as far as containing the whos and the whats of this figment-like mechanism or is this not even an important topic?

I saw a lot of Rust shills on tech. Finally, I decided to read about Rust on wikipedia (article written by Rust shills).

After reading, it turns out that Rust really is best, replacement of C++. I am not Rust shill or something, but it's a fact.

/tech/ idiots discriminate and boycott Rust because it's new (they like old shitty things like assembly) and because Mozilla was involved with Rust.

Do you have any valid logical concerns against Rust? Post them

IPFS-based Imageboard

There's been some talk for a while now about the idea of putting together a properly distributed imageboard, and there have been some efforts made towards that end. However, in my view the current efforts still have a number of weak points that leave them vulnerable to targeted attacks knocking them offline. NNTPchan for instance is cool, but the way it's put together DDoSing a (relatively) small number of nodes is still sufficient to take the federation down.

For the past year now I have been slowly working on an IPFS-based federated imageboard software package. It's still in a very early state, and I was hoping to let it sit until IPFS developed a little more, but recent events have made it clear that the noose is already starting to tighten now so out the door it goes.

Github: https://github.com/smugdev/smugboard

Working instance: http://localhost:8080/ipns/client.smugchan.org/#Qmf9QKURJVU53mzmysAFAR3mj48dLXqS2rNpq2o41EugcV/tech

(You need a running go-ipfs daemon set up as per https://github.com/smugdev/smugboard#usage to actually access it)

This is Smugboard, an imageboard package with a fully distributed content layer and a maximally decentralized control layer. It is composed of 5 separate server packages handling different aspects of posting and moderation, and a client-side renderer. Each thread and board takes the form of an append-only log hosted via IPFS, with moderation taking the form of a client-side filter. Users can choose to toggle specific mods on or off (soon - UI not yet complete).

As noted the federation is composed of a series of append-only logs, and these are published directly within IPFS. A proper UI for this isn't done yet, but it will be possible to fork any board or thread from its current state, or from any previous state, at any time. In the event of a board going offline, the board's state still exists within the IPFS network and as long as a copy still exists in any user's cache the board will still be retrievable (in a read-only state), and can be forked and restarted from that state or any of its previous states by any other user. As the content layer works like a bittorrent swarm, the board will paradoxically load faster the more people use it.

Again, this software is still very much a prototype so expect bugs and fun, there's still plenty that needs implementing and contributions are welcome.

Bugs report

I think it's a good idea to have a thread to report misc bugs in, that don't need a whole thread.

It may be good to sticky this too, so all users that have to report a bug can do it here instead of clogging up the index. Thoughts, CM?

does anyone have any suggestions on OCR that isn't total shit? I've been trying to convert 400 page pdf's, and everything that I've tried has been total complete complete garbage.

I've ran down this whole list, and it's all garbage, it either doesn't generate text or crashes constantly

https://github.com/tesseract-ocr/tesseract/wiki/User-Projects-%E2%80%93-3rdParty

I've pretty much given up any any gui being capable of this. I'm going to have to manually write some scripts or something that converts a pdf to jpg/etc, processes's each image, and then puts it back together in a pdf. I really don't want to have to re-invent the wheel if I don't have to.

The best I've found in terms of actually being able to generate text is ocrfeeder

https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Apps/OCRFeeder

The problem is like most things in Gnome, it's not maintained, and has critical bugs with 4 year old bug fixes that nobody bothered to patch. I managed to get it working applying these patches, but it still memory leaks, 10GB after 400 pages.

&gt;hardware advances &gt;software becomes more retarded

Why is it that as hardware for computers continues to advance the software keeps going backwards?

All the simplest shit that should have already been solved a long fucking time ago continues to fuck up and to get slower, buggier, and shittier all around.

So much stuff we could do very adequately years ago on much older computers with far less resources today we can't seem to do despite the very powerful hardware.

Torrent Sites Suffer DDoS Attacks and Other Trouble

By Ernesto Fagioli

>The past few days have been pretty hectic for many torrent sites, several of which have suffered downtime due to DDoS attacks. But the trouble doesn't stop there. WorldWideTorrents had its domain name suspended, while IsoHunt.to has disappeared without a trace.

>It’s not uncommon for torrent sites to suffer downtime due to technical issues. That happens pretty much every day.

>But when close to a dozen large sites go offline, people start to ask questions.

>This is exactly what happened this week. As reported previously, The Pirate Bay was hard to reach earlier, after a surge of traffic and a subsequent DDoS attack overloaded its servers. And they were not alone.

>TorrentFreak spoke to several torrent site admins who noticed an increase of suspicious traffic which slowed down or toppled their sites, at least temporarily. While most have recovered, some sites remain offline today.

>TorrentProject.se, one of the most used torrent search engines, has been down for nearly three days now. The site currently shows a “403 Forbidden” error message. Whether this is a harmless technical issue, the result of a DDoS attack, or worse, is unknown.

>TorrentFreak reached out to the owner of the site but we have yet to hear back.

>Another site that appears to be in trouble is WorldWideTorrents. This site, which was started after the KAT shutdown last year, is a home to many comic book fans. However, over the past few days the site has become unresponsive.

>Based on WHOIS data, the site’s domain name has been suspended. The name servers were changed to “suspended-domain.com,” which means that it’s unlikely to be reinstated. WorldWideTorrents will reportedly return with a new domain but which one is currently unknown.

Updates

complete: https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/blob/7ea34c6c6ed18e886f869a1fbe725a848d13695c/CHANGELOG.md

""0.4.10""

 ipfs pin verify 
checks the intergrity of of pinned object graphs in the repo

 ipfs pin update 
effeciently updates the object graph

 ipfs shutdown [/ipfs] shuts down ipfs daemon
[code] ipfs add --hash
allows you to specify a hashing algorithm, including blake2b-256

 ipfs p2p 
(experimental) allows you to open arbitarty streams to ipfs peers using libp2p

""0.4.9""

 ipfs add 
can now use contentID instead of multihashes, which allows the type of content to be specified in the hash. This could allow ipfs to nativly address any content from a merkletree based system, such as git, bitcoin, zcash, and ethereum

tl;dr for Beginners

>decentralized P2P network

>like torrenting, but instead of getting a .torrent file or magnet link that shares a pre-set group of files, you get a hash of the files which is searched for in the network and served automatically

>you can add files to the entire network with one line in the CLI or a drag-and-drop into the web interface

>HTTP gateways let you download any hash through your browser without running IPFS

>can stream video files in mpv or VLC (though it's not recommended unless the file has a lot of seeds)

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person requesting the hash, as opposed to .torrent files/magnets which require both seeders use the same file.

FAQ

>Is it safe?

It's about as safe as a torrent right now, ignoring the relative obscurity bonus. They are working on integration with TOR and I2P. Check out libp2p if you're curious.

>Is it fast?

Finding a seeder can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. It's slowly improving but still requires a fair bit of optimization work. Once the download starts, it's as fast as the peers can offer, just like a torrent.

>Is it a meme?

You be the judge.

It has implementations in Go (meant for desktop integration) and Javascript (meant for browser/server integration) in active development that are functional right now, it has a bunch of side projects that build on it, and it divides important parts of its development (IPLD, libp2p, etc) into separate projects that allow for drop-in support for many existing technologies.

On the other hand, it's still alpha software with a small userbase and has poor network performance.

U.S. Spends $900M on Next Generation AI Chips

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, also known as DARPA, is spending $900 million over the next several years to develop new microprocessor technologies to continue pushing the development of artificial intelligence. It is also funding research into the development of a brain-to-computer interface.

http://www.trunews.com/article/u.s.-spends-900m-on-next-generation-ai-chips

According to a new report, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency—also known as DARPA—is investing $900 million in advanced materials and technologies to create next-generation microprocessors that will lead to powerful AI advancements. The new effort is called the Electronics Resurgence Initiative, and according to DARPA officials, the goal is to “open new innovation pathways to address impending engineering and economics challenges that, if left unanswered, could challenge what has been a relentless half-century run of progress in microelectronics technology.” The statement continues:

>To maintain healthy forward momentum, ERI over the next four years will commit hundreds of millions of dollars to nurture research in advanced new materials, circuit design tools, and system architectures. In addition to a half-dozen or so existing DARPA programs, and the largest program in the U.S. that funds basic electronics research at universities ... “Moore's Law has guided the electronics industry for more than 50 years,” said Bill Chappell, director of the Agency’s Microsystems Technology Office (MTO), which will be overseeing ERI. Chappell is referring to Gordon Moore, one of the giants of the microelectronics revolution. In 1965, Moore famously predicted a trajectory of progress in which the transistor-count of integrated circuits would double every year or two while the cost per transistor would decrease. These trends have underwritten the ongoing microelectronics revolution. “Moore’s Law has set the technology community on a quest for continued scaling and those who have mastered the technology to date have enjoyed the greatest commercial benefits and the greatest gains in defense capabilities,” said Chappell. Moore’s Law still applies, but the design work and fabrication now required to keep on pace is becoming ever more difficult and expensive. “The current trajectory is straining commercial and defense developments,” said Chappell. This is where ERI comes in.

In July, DARPA announced it was beginning work on a brain-to-computer interface.

>"DARPA has been a pioneer in brain-machine interface technology since the 1970s, but we began investing heavily in the early 2000s when the confluence of improved sensing and information technology opened the door to new capabilities," said Justin Sanchez, Director of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office. "Since then, DARPA has invested hundreds of millions of dollars transitioning ‘neuroscience’ into ‘neurotechnology’ with a series of cumulatively more advanced research programs that expand the frontiers of what is possible in this enormously difficult domain. We’ve laid the groundwork for a future in which advanced brain interface technologies will transform how people live and work, and the Agency will continue to operate at the forward edge of this space to understand how national security might be affected as new players and even more powerful technologies emerge."

The Pitch: Microchips ‘Make Life Easier’

The Pitch: Microchips ‘Make Life Easier’

A new report in the Australian media is touting the benefits of having biometric implants, microchips embedded under the skin, calling it "something from a science fiction movie."

http://www.trunews.com/article/the-pitch-microchips-make-life-easier

The mainstream media continues to push “biometric implants,” tiny microchips upon which personal data is stored that are inserted under the skin, as a matter of convenience that is “something out of a science fiction movie.” Take, for instance, this new report from an Australian television station:

>From opening doors to riding the bus and paying for lunch, subdermal microchips are the way of the future for people embracing a digital future. Remi Baker and Mitch Hunter from PHD Media are two early adopters of the microchip technology. “We don’t need any ID cards, we don’t need any pin codes, we don’t need any access cards or anything so we can live a much freer life,” Mr Hunter said. The microchip, which is the size of a grain of rice, sits beneath the skin. Data from your bank card, LinkedIn profile or even your medical history is cloned on to the chip which is then implanted in the hand. Using the same technology as tap and pay cards, the chip can be used to do anything that has been programmed on to the chip.

The report even suggests such implants can save lives, if a person has stored medical information on it.

Hello /sudo/. Some time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. I would write something significant here, but it is late where I am and I would rather go to sleep as soon as possible. I could have waited until tomorrow to make the thread but I figured that would be unwise.

For the 8chan Attention-Hungry Games, any board with less than 500 users can nominate themselves to participate, with up to 48 boards being able to participate (or we can go to 24 or 36 if we don't get enough boards for some odd reason). These 48 or so boards compete on a Hunger Games simulator hosted on BrantSteele (in particular, the current code for this as of this writing is at http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=QkqSkdUb which is based off of http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=FlMMyAqW), and the winner gets to be advertised as a global announcement for about a week.

As for the requirements for signing up:

1. No boards that promote raiding other 8chan boards

2. Must have less than 500 active users at the start of the game

3. Can"t have won the hunger games in the past week (last week's winner is /loomis/ and at the top of this page, which makes the spoiler rather pointless, but someone didn't like spoilers nonetheless so here you go)

4. Need to submit a SFW sentence that advertises their board that CodeMonkey can put in the global announcement. (NSFW boards are welcome to join, but the announcement should be SFW). Failure to do so will result in anons deciding your sentence via dubs to your detriment.

5. It is recommended you post a picture with your nomination, and that picture should be square as it will be stretched otherwise. I will determine the gender of you tribute based on the picture.

6. If a BO of a board does not want to participate, please don't nominate it. Board Owners, if you don't want to participate but someone nominated you, please let me know before the start of the round and I will remove it from the list. As of now, only /miku/ has asked not to participate.

7. Nominate only 1 board per IP hash per post. For posts that nominate more than 1 board and an IP hash nominating multiple boards, I will take the first one and ignore the rest, and I will know if you are samefagging.

8. Once a round concludes, please wait until the next thread is created before you nominate a board.

The next round will start

This Saturday at 8pm ET

Especially since Irma is going in a different direction from what I was expecting and thus is unlikely to bring her fat ass to my neighborhood.

With that all being said, nominate your boards now. Also, if I missed anything, let me know so I can correct the OP for next time.
