aaand the first decoded sample I got back from the VAE I trained on my Project Gutenberg poetry corpus is... "we let the captain of the farts." love these neural networks


adventures in poetry space (interpolating between two random samples):

With day in the world and all the green-born wings.
And take the world in the steeping eyes.
And in the soul are one and fair;
And such is a child of summer--
And all the one and the sun of the world.
And was so as the world is gone.
And there was the world is evermore.
And what i might that i go.
And i was not in the weary day.
And where i saw the lovers are never are known.
And i was the no more for the night.

(this is from a model trained on just a 100k-line subset of the poetry corpus and where I had to terminate the training process because I could see the posterior collapsing right before my eyes—still not bad I think!)

@aparrish "and was so as the world is gone" is a lovely turn of phrase

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on and then as another user on * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: 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 users, and only ever @ mention other 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.
