Alt und langweilig: Astronautin verkleidet sich in Star Trek-Manier auf der ISS.

Neu und aufregend: Astronautin stellt auf der ISS das Bild eines SciFi-Films nach, in dem es um eine Astronautin auf der ISS geht. 🤯

Well done, Samantha Cristoforetti!

tragic news, assault, birdsite reference 

Being mesmerised by the actor who used to portray my favourite Doctor Who character sending live reports from the events he witnessed at Breitscheidplatz on the birdsite.

I don't think the branch of reality we live in was ever meant for production use.

I wonder how many misunderstandings could we avoid, if instead of using the term "Artificial Intelligence" we were saying something like "Stereotypical Classification"?

Pattern recognition is a much better term than AI, but also misleading. It assumes that there is a meaningful pattern in the data, which one needs to find.

While Stereotypical Classification would mean that even if I am given a randomized mess, I will invent criteria and stereotypes which then I will use for classification.

"China is disrupting the global supply chain with their COVID-Zero policies" is a really weird way to say "How dare you stop making our stuff just because it might kill a few of you."

It's #ThreadThursdays! Do you know what an X-ray binary is?

An X-ray binary is one of the most common ways we see black holes and neutron stars, which are dead stars with extreme physics.

[Side note: Black holes and neutron stars together are called "compact objects" because at a macroscopic distance, they're more alike than different!]

When we created ODF 20+ years ago, Microsoft first laughed at the committee at OASIS, then made OOXML to render it moot, then rigged ISO to make OOXML a standard, then implemented ODF and now participates in the ODF committee and helps fund its work through COSM.

#Bluesky is Twitter's OOXML to #ActivityPub and it's at the "rigging ISO" stage.
