dear xkcd guy, how many telepaths would you need to transmit 4k video at 60fps
reported in Chevreul's _De la baguette divinatoire_ (1854): a chair that writes novels. A chair that writes novels, a chair... that writes novels. "JUANITA, a Novel, by a Chair, followed by a Proverb and some Select Pieces of the same Author... The literary productions of the Chair are merely the preface of a mystic book, which it will unroll, page by page, before the dazzled eyes of the believers..."
in the past there have been times when I feel like I've been blowing smoke up people's asses when I insist on the surprisingly long (pre-Internet, pre-digital computer) history of hype cycles around automatically-produced creative writing, but no longer, because now I know that someone in 1854 said that a book written by piece of furniture will DAZZLE YOU
@aparrish also in this series: a table that publishes accounting textbooks, an autobiographical armoire, and a sideboard which cooks up dubious Wikipedia articles
I'm liking this idea that Everything Has Opinions
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
