  • "Sooo... from the video it seems like the recipe is, chop carrots, boil till soft, blend them up, strain out several times to extract sugars and such, dehydrate and add to concrete? Awesome.Combine this with a soy epoxy and you're getting somewhere."

  • "Before the internet museums preserved the past, but they also chose what pieces of the past (whose perspective) was valuable to preserve. They are powerful because of the moments of history that they preserve, but they are biased and skewed by the fact that it took wealthy and powerful people to carry them through time as an institution.That painting took skill to create and much can be derived from it's content, but I do not think it is a bad thing that those youth are ignoring it. As we move into the future and continue to explore the new possibilities of who gets to define what is important to take note of, paintings like the night watch will be understood as political objects as much as they are pieces of history. These youth are choosing where to put their attention, and smartphones give them agency to take back a small measure of their time and attention from the demands of an unjust education system which prioritizes eurocentric, power-centric narratives."

  • "When I read the headline I was imagining that there was a chicken door out the back to allow the hens to get in and out without human intervention. Having to "pull a rocky" every day is quite inefficient when chickens are pretty good at getting themselves in and out of a roost."

  • "This seems like a technology that provides a relatively minor improvement in speed and resolution, but which is very easy to lock up with patents and proprietary formulas. The comparison photo CLIP vs 3D printing does not specify what older technology it is being compared to (is that an SLA part?)Don't get me wrong, figuring out a balance point that allows for continuous layer printing is impressive, it's just not something I'm going to get excited about if they keep it to themselves. At best, this is the inspiration for someone else to figure out an alternate method for continuous printing and publish that method without trying to lock it up."
