What are the security implications of installing a pirated apk using Shelter?
I want to make sure that this apks don't send private data through to the server. I don't think this is what Shelter is for.

Actually I’d find even better if there was an instance that imported everything from Reddit that way people could actually interact with the content not like in libreddit.

Ideas for a Reddit importer script?
I'm looking for the script to import content from Reddit. > Someone on lemmygrad wrote a script for this. > > — By [@nutomic@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/nutomic) on [Github](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/119#issuecomment-1383227518) I want to import top posts and comments so that I only have to use Lemmy instead of Lemmy and [libreddit](https://github.com/spikecodes/libreddit). I want to adapt the script to choose a number of top Reddit posts for each community based on the users per month. Each comment could be something like: > comment body > > posted by u/reddit-user on [comment link](https://reddit.com) Got the idea from this issue: [The rank of a post in the aggregated feed should be inversely proportional to the size of the community](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1026) Is there a better way to choose the posts other than a minimum score? Something that chooses around the same number of posts from each subreddit? I think I could take the median score of the posts on a subreddit and select the posts above it. Any other ideas for this? Edit: [found it](https://github.com/rileynull/RedditLemmyImporter). It's made in kotlin so I won't do this for now.

Why don't we see more distributed large language model projects?
I was wondering this after seeing the following ["Run 100B+ language models at home, BitTorrent-style. Fine-tuning and inference up to 10x faster than offloading" - this approach might be useful for SD-type models too Discussion](https://github.com/bigscience-workshop/petals) > Worthy of note... If the model is split up layerwise (it seems there are 80 layers), each layer is only 2.5GB of weights. > > Not much communication happens between layers at inference time - just a couple of kilobytes of activations per token (~word) of output generated. > > That means it's theoretically possible to split the work between machines across the internet, and 80 volunteers could run this on regular machines to get the whole thing running. > > — By [u/londons_explorer](https://reddit.com/user/londons_explorer) on [[D] Has anyone got YaLM-100B to run?](https://reddit.com/r/MachineLearning/comments/vpn0r1/d_has_anyone_got_yalm100b_to_run/)

How can I visit the main page of another instance?
To see a community from another instance I can write ``` https://lemmy.ml/c/community@instance ``` For example ``` https://lemmy.ml/c/linux@heapoverflow.ml ``` How can I visit the main page instead of a community from another instance?

Studies have concluded that stevia extract does not contain fermentable carbohydrates and does not produce lactic acid, which are both factors in causing cavities and tooth decay[1][2]. Therefore, it is generally accepted that stevia does not cause cavities[3][4][5].

That could be automated. A possible future feature. I don’t care about it enough to open an issue though.

From the one I think most likely to least likely:

  • Most experts I’ve read say if the AGI can improve itself and it’s not aligned with human values. That would mean the end for humanity. When it becomes intelligent enough it would do it’s own thing treating us the way we treat ants. I think this is the most likely outcome since there seems to be a race for AGI without much thought for safety.
  • I think if a corporation was the first to develop an AGI and it was aligned with its values, then they would try to increase profits at the expense of the world and everyone else, just like they usually do.
  • If AGI was aligned with human values then it would probably be as flawed as humans and we would all die.
  • If AGI was aligned to each person then some psychopath could use it to destroy the world, the galaxy or the universe.

I’m finding hard to think of the outcome that would create an utopia.

  • If humans managed to modify their emotions in some way then maybe aligning AGI with our values could be safe?

Crazy experience with Yandex
I've used Yandex and it seems to be a crazy echo chamber. I searched on it and I got results for a niche subreddit that I used to visit without using [libreddit](https://github.com/libreddit/libreddit) before I started caring about my privacy. The results don't really have anything to do with what I was searching but I guess the algorithm just puts a lot of points in familiar websites. And I don't know how they've got that data anyways, probably either Google or Reddit sold them the data. I only wanted to see what the internet was like without big tech and western media. The best way for this would be to have my own [Mwmbl](https://mwmbl.org/) instance once it has user crowdsourcing, but for now I could only think of trying [marginalia](https://search.marginalia.nu) or [Yandex](yandex.com). Yandex doesn't seem to block either big tech or western media anyways, so I didn't found the experiment interesting.

Someone could have a custom instance with an affinity page that showed other users sorted by percentage affinity with the current user.

You can see who upvotes and downvotes Lemmy posts
A curiosity I didn't know about Lemmy. > However, I just noticed a place where there is some lack of informed consent here on Lemmy: in the Lemmy UI, it appears that upvotes and downvotes are anonymous. I checked a long time ago, and realized that they weren’t really; the identity of the up or down voter is federated, but it is simply not shown by the UI. > > I would assume that many (probably most) lemmy users do not realize this: admins of your own instance and all federated instances have the ability to see who upvoted and downvoted what. > > It just now came to my attention that Friendica actually is showing this information publicly, in the form of “$username does not like this” for a downvote! > > — By [@cypherpunks@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/cypherpunks) on [Great fedi thread on consent](https://lemmy.ml/post/732593/comment/378308)

I downvoted for two reasons:

  • I don’t like to read through Twitter/Mastodon threads that should be written as a blog post or Reddit/Lemmy post and linked on Twitter/Mastodon.
  • the US court has already ruled that scraping internet content is legal and I doubt any amount of discussion is going to change that. I also doubt US companies will comply if consent is necessary in other countries.

I had forgotten about popcorntime. I think that’s the best alternative right now.

I look forward to trying it in a decade when RTX 3080 are cheaper.

I would like to filter out all western media and big tech domains just to see what the internet would be like. I think the best way right now using FOSS software would be to make your own lemmy instance where you set the rule of nothing regarding America. But then you need people actually using the instance to add links otherwise you wouldn’t see a thing. If you don’t care about FOSS software then I’d say the best option is the google feed that adapts to you based on the opinions you give to what it shows. I had it on my Android phone before degoogling and it always showed me what I found most interesting at the moment.

If the new government is leftist it’s probably censoring right-wing extremists, aka Nazis. Are you promoting the use of Matrix by that kind of people?

China already uses AI in schools, but the west is basically using the same school system that was developed after the industrial revolution, they just refused to evolve even after the internet appeared, and now they are complaining because they are being forced to evolve by AI.

I think Lemmy is what gets closer but I’m thinking about a platform with a more personalized experience rather than what most people like, which in a large part of the fediverse ends up being cats, anime, memes, etc…

I’ve also heard of Pacstall and LURE but they have a long way to go to catch up with AUR. I think the closest to AUR for Ubuntu would be Homebrew.

I understand that there is this AI that gets the information from the same sources as me…
