Hey guys I'm a 19 year old digital nomad living in Eastern Europe (but from America). I launched my first website, Tiblar. It's sort of like Tumblr but has lax rules and more privacy conscious (no ads, no external javascript/css, no logs). Here's a profile with the cyberpunk theme:

https://tiblar.com/neuromancer/

The main page: https://tiblar.com/

Any feedback would be awesome. I'm working on a JavaScript free + hidden service version. Open source will come when I'm satisfied with everything. It's still in beta so more features are coming.

>trying to appeal to normalfags

yeah because I don't want just 5 people to use my service.

There's already so many distributed platforms. Which is more popular/works better: Matrix or Discord, YouTube or PeerTube, ZeroNet or the regular net, Bitcoin or PayPal, Twitter or Mastodon, etc. I figure I can ensure better privacy and more normie friendly use will have better results. Honestly most centralized services would be fine if they took basic steps to ensure user privacy.

At least I'm trying to do something

>yeah because I don't want just 5 people to use my service.

If it was good, a lot of people would use it, certainly more than 5 people. A lot of people use Tor. Being good is a sufficient but not necessary condition for lots of people using your service.

The only reason to care about the number of users over everything else is brouzouf, in which case your jewish ass can go back to hacker news or whatever.

>There's already so many distributed platforms.

No there aren't, at least not anonymous ones. Freenet is the only one that meets those requirements but it doesn't nail the decentralized moderation aspects.

>Which is more popular/works better: Matrix or Discord, YouTube or PeerTube, ZeroNet or the regular net, Bitcoin or PayPal, Twitter or Mastodon, etc.

Who cares? If you want something that "works well" (as long as you are a good goy) and you don't care that they can censor you, spy on you or ban you and delete all your data at any moment then you can use those services that already exist.

>I figure I can ensure better privacy and more normie friendly use will have better results.

You can not ensure better privacy. First because you can not provide any proof you aren't spying on your users, and second because if your service actually gets popular you will not be able to withstand legal pressure from feds and CIA agents networking with your company and getting their agents hired as employees to infiltrate your facilities and plant malware on the servers.

>Honestly most centralized services would be fine if they took basic steps to ensure user privacy.

I bet you think VPNs make you anonymous and duckduckgo doesn't share your search logs with anyone. But post again when you stop being so naive though.

Absolutely yes. Without root: android is a bot fucking net. A honeypot for google. In latest android versions it forces you to use google apps, you can't even remove them. So, with root you can securely remove Gappsl , you can use microG (fake google services), use iptables rules on apps (firewall), you can even install kali nethunter on it.

<LET'S DO SOME INFOSEC WORK SHAZBOTS

This is a new series I am going to make based on the products collectively known as Automatic License Plate Readers (aka ALPRs). There is a lot of mystery and myth surrounding this technology as well as methods of effectively evading it, if any exist at all. Collectively I am confident we can find a solution to the Automated threat

>inb4 if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear

Fuck you.

>What is it?

"Typically, ALPR systems are comprised of high-speed cameras connected to computers that photograph every license plate that passes. The photo is converted to letters and numbers, which are attached to a time and location stamp, then uploaded to a central server. This allows police to identify and record the locations of vehicles in real time and also identify where those vehicles have been in the past. Using this information, police could establish driving patterns for individual cars. The type of data ALPRs collect, analyze, and access often depends on what kind of systems they use and how they combine the data."

>Why the concern?

Much like Stringrays (cell towerspoofing MITM devices used by LEO) a few years back, these devices are essentially unregulated. When used by private parties have been they have been able to scan up to 8k license plates in a single day, according to only one study. These databases are up for sale, much like cell location data. The data recorded includes GPS location, scan coordinates, and timestamp. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

they are only in high visibility spots on the main street in my town. im guessing thats SOP. so good luck with any of that. i was thinking vaseline. you cant tell the camera is damaged by looking at it, so it would take a city worker to notice after a photo comes in and then do something about it. who knows? that whole process might just be automated, and they might not find out for awhile.

GREETINGS /cyber/

The Infinity Cup is returning once again, and 8chan's boards will be fighting it out on the pitch to claim divegrass supremacy. As a board that has participated in the Cup at one point or another in its history, you are invited to the reveal stream for 2019 Summer edition of the Cup. On Saturday June 22nd, at 3 PM EDT/7 PM UTC, on cytu.be/r/8cup I'll be giving you guys an early look at the Cup's 5th edition, which will include revamped aesthetics, team stadiums and other quality of life improvements I've figured out how to do in PES 17. Hopefully this will get anons back on board with the Cup, considering it has struggled mightily since its 2nd incarnation.

So how is it going to go down? I'll be staging a couple of exhibition matches between teams using their rosters from the last Cup, and we'll shitpost our merry way through the stream. Once the stream ends, entries will be open for the Cup, and boards can start putting together/editing their rosters and kits. Entries will close in early July, the field will be determined, and the Group Draw will take place approximately a week before the Cup kicks off in August. I'm also hoping to possibly introduce managers for the Cup, although I'm still working out the details to keep this from devolving into a namefag dick measuring contest. I hope you all will tune in, and in case you aren't caught up on your board's history, I've provided some links below to get you caught up:

Looks fucking 水

>Harley Davidson looks like it will be the first company to market with a mainstream electric motorcycle, according to engadget. The company's LiveWire electric motorcycle will soon be on the road and will have a longer range than expected, at 140 miles of city driving on a single charge. But, like any other electric vehicle, you’ll still need to hook it up to a charger once in a while.

>According to Harley Davidson's website, the bike will be "available in select dealerships through North America and Western Europe in the fall of 2019. Select additional markets will follow."

>The motorcycle has been in the works for more than four years now. You'll be able to charge it with a Level 1 charger at home, or with a quicker Level 2 or 3 DC fast chargers, that'll be available at Harley Davidson dealerships.

<The bike comes with seven riding modes that tune the suspension and electric drivetrain differently. It sports anti-lock brakes and a traction control system, along with a color touchscreen for navigation and Bluetooth connectivity.

>Harley Davidson is offering free charging for its new US customers.

<The motorcycle is soon going to be available at a limited number of dealerships and will cost about $30,000. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds. There is no clutch and no shifting.

>Harley Davidson is looking to revitalize its business after struggling with declining sales and an aging client base both in the United States and abroad. Sales of its motorcycles were down 4.2% and international sales were down 3.3% in the first quarter of 2019.

Easy to predict this will fail. You dont buy a 30000 USD motorcycle to save on gas, and the whole culture surronding motorcycles isnt a bunch of future forward early adopters anyway. This is a product for no one.

>still tries to use that profile for no reason

it looks really uncomfortable to ride and there's no reason for it to look the way it does. they had all the opportunity to style this in lots of better ways and just chose not to.

>>56805

also this. motorcycle people who get them to save gas would rather scooters (that already exist and can rip a completely adequate level of shit even in battery powered models) and people who want to GOFAST also want loud engines and dual straight exhausts and shit so they can wake people up at 3am. this is a product that appeals to basically only nerds who want to virtue signal how green they are and/or how futuristic their stuff is, who mostly don't ride motorcycles and would likely prefer something like a SMART ForTwo with electric drive or drive FUCKING LEAFS and such

Some of these look schway and are much more inexpensive. howere, you have to be more conscious of the range so you can get back home for a charge. some of them can't travel too far. ok if you're in a city though.

I've been wanting to get into crypto farming but I don't really understand how it works. I found the idea of it fascinating when I first heard of it years ago but just never got around to learning much about it because it seemeed untested and volatile. How do I get into crypto farming without spending a lot of brouzouf on it?

More and more businesses are accepting crypto. There are even a few convenience stores downtown that accept bitcoin. My understanding is that what we're seeing with crypto is essentially digital currency without a reliance upon the gold standard and ft knox.

>>56699

I'd prefer to avoid leasing anything at all. I'd probably just restore an old laptop or something and use it to mine crypto. I'm not sure how to even find a mining pool, or which ones are safe and which are scams.

My interest in crypto is largely just as a way to augment my very meagre income. I'd like to try and gather enough of it to utilize to purchase things to pursue my hobbies, and if I can keep things off the books for the most part, more the better. Plus, Crypto is looking like a decent way to have an international currency.

don't coins have banks too? why not trade in commodities then? both in terms of stockpiling gold coins in a sock under your bed but also actual futures trading of mundane/stable commodities like staple foods and non-oil energy resources and such

in general, crypto just seems like a higher-risk version of currency trading but harder to do effectively because there isn't much that affects the price of it other than its own availability, yet the price varies wildly from cents per unit to hundreds of dollars per unit. unlike, say, stocks where you can monitor companies' announcements on new products and such, or in commodities where news of shifting popular tastes or crack-fueled abbo riots would reasonably affect prices of related materials

As someone who completely brouzoufed out of crypto and is now in 100% "legitimate" stocks: the upside.

People speculate on crypto because the upside is insane, thousands of percentage points. It's fucking unreal. Compare that with the market and I'm up just 9% over the last 12 months.

Even with commodities, you need a broker which is going to be an established bank and "the man" gets a nice cut. And most coins do not have actual banks, nor are most coin exchanges (as far as you need them) registered as such, or have comparable shittiness.

And as the other comment mentioned, you aren't going to be paying tax on crypto.

>>56754

You can always do futures. If you leverage well, you can go to the moon with normal stuff too just buy a noose before you do it, just in case. Not that it's that different from crypto

Okay, first of all, before you guys get your panties in a bunch and tell me that this isn't like the other topics, or whatever, I'm letting you know ahead of time that I am new here. I did lurk for a bit, and I found a few posts, and a thread or two that fell on similar lines. Plus, you can see it says Science Fiction right up at the top.

Hey, guys! What if, and hear me out, what if maybe the Singularity already happened and we are all being governed by an artificial intelligence in an Augmented Reality?! That could explain quite a bit, actually. Inconsistencies, and what-not…

The Singularity is maybe not happening right now - but, weirdly, we are in the "Age of Spiritual Machines" as predicted by Ray Kurzweil at nearly a perfect space on the timeline he laid out.

Kurzweil isn't right about a lot. He predicted that the doubling rate for semiconductors would increase instead of plateauing in the 2010's. His guesstimates put the cost of (again, his estimates) sufficient gross computing to equal to a human brain in degree to $1000 in 2019. I can't say anything with authority about how he came to his figures, but whatever he claims, it's very unlikely that you can get an equal amount of general computing power for that price IRL.

That said, he does get kudos for some of the concepts he outlined. The "Age of Spiritual Machines" began in 2018.

These guys tried applying the complex pattern-discerning properties of the current raft of neural network tools to a specific task: understanding the actions of a separate program. They get moderately into detail into their methods, but the goal was to simulate the ability of humans and other very intelligent animals to develop a theory of mind(ToM) for outside entities based on an understanding of what is stimulating the entity and past reactions to stimulus. We use our ability to form a theory of mind for lots and lots of things, since our evolutionary background included a lot of social aggression in small groups where understanding how someone else would react to a situation gave strategic advantage. In humans, ToM is hypertrophied to the point that we assign mindedness to nearly any phenomena too complex to model directly. Anthropomorphization of the non-furry kind is what it's called when we treat something that isn't people like it is.

Dudes succeeded. Their Tomnet project is capable of developing independent models of behavior for multiple agents interacting in a simulation space. (Read the fucking paper, Shinji) It can handle multiple levels of complexity. It crrectly deduces rough statistical models for brownian/randomly-acting agenPost too long.

OP you have identified the Cartesian argument concerning solipsism.

Descates aside, I believe there can never be incontrovertible proof that the world is not an illusion or that other people really exist independently of an illusion, self directed or enforced by some third party.

It is ultimately a philosophical choice to decide whether the 'apparently' independent minds and forces in the world disobey you and cause you harm sometimes because you are self destructive, that the third party (god/ai) hates you sometimes or is capricious, or that there really are other imperfect minds out there acting independently of your own.

Developmental psychology also examines this question through what is called "the no experiment" which typically occurs around the age of 2.

Example: Someone calls to a child, and for the first time the child says, "no" then watches their body to see if it obeys. When it doesn't move, their whole ontology is shifted to acknowledge their own agency as opposed to a former view that the whole of creation was their body/mind, supposedly.

>continued

Ultimately it is more interesting to me to consider for the first time humanity has stepped out of the shadow of it's AI overlord/god that controlled everything on a grand scale and can try the whole 'adult agency' thing for a bit.

But that said I am also tickled to consider the words of Morpheus from Deus Ex concerning humanity's need for judgment and approval. (Pic Related)

It takes a certain amount of courage to both be wrong if we are in a simulation, as you face the shame of being wrong, but it also is the only means by which a human being may exercise their will as an adult. One must ultimately realize that we each determine what is and is not, what should or should not be done for ourselves. Cribbing of of some other moral system is ultimately dependence regardless of the reality of the situation.

As such I choose to believe we are free because I choose to believe we are free. But in my made up story, we all get to be gods/adults and in the alternative what we do doesn't matter.

Sophistry perhaps, but as I said earlier the best I've got is a personal preference argument.

What >>28813 said. 3D printing is the way to go, I printed this in about 5 pieces and worked it together. I was going to use it in a movie or short film but I never worked out a story for it. I want to make it 水 by putting screens on the inside and adding some lights behind the eye slits, lack of brouzuf and tech keeps me from going further with it currently. I haven't taken the time to learn the 3D modeling yet but if you got me a model I could probably make a shell.

If you've got a shell to create and no 3D printer access, or it's too large to print, there's always Pepakura. In that case you use a normal printer to put your design on cardstock and glue the tabbed edges together to assemble your model, then use fiberglass resin to stiffen it up. It's a slightly orthogonal skillset to most 3D printering shit, but it is good for doing cheapshit or big shapes.

When and why did clean minimalism become part of what people view as the cyberpunk aesthetic and how do we stop it?

Minimalism is for trendy shazbots

Dirt, grit, technology, clutter, actual utilitarian structure (not ugly useless minimalism) et cetera make a livingspace cyber

Minimalism is mostly for the braindead masses that got confused of all the shit nowadays.

If you want to pass your message today it has to be in a minimal design, making it seem a "heaven of relaxation" compared to the chaotic energy of everyday life.

I always thought of the whole concept like the memory vacations in total recall. Everything is shit but there is this little hole in reality that stands for you. Combine this with marketing/propaganda and you have the modern reality of safespaces and minimalistic digital design.

I think it is cyberpunk, but on the low life way, it's culture jamming in a way, a way to make you feel safe when everything is fucked up.

The rp aspect is more like taking a fishing trawler out to sea, then casting out a fishing rod you'd use from the edge of a small lake. You're still fishing, but you're going overboard with the aesthetic.
