I disagree with the post's preference for incrementalism over novelty, but I agree that there's big price for being too selective. Beyond frustrating everyone, I think it leads to dominance of trendiness and in-groups over significance, progress, originality, and depth. And though that may be good for those in the trendy in-groups, it's not good for the field.
#introduction so I can pin this
Hi, I'm Aen!
I'm 22, British-Indian, he/him, I live in the UK, and I am a Computer Science student, specifically going down the Networking path.
My other interests are Eurovision, reading (although I mainly read Sci-fi/Fantasy, I'm very open to exploring other genres), history, and talking to people here!
New draft book on lower bounds in complexity theory, by Demaine, Gasarch, and Hajiaghayi, intended as a replacement for Garey and Johnson's 1979 NP-completeness book: https://hardness.mit.edu/ via http://blog.computationalcomplexity.org/2022/08/computers-and-intractability-guide-to.html
This is my #introduction .
I am Daniel, a citizen of the World, born in #Portugal . I am interested in numerical systems, programming, free operating systems, and making great stuff with free OSes and the Internet.
I like digital #privacy and secure communications. I make my digital choices, not based on popularity, and based on merit.
I also like sushi, ice cream, fruit, meditation, yoga, tea, dating and meeting new people ;-)
I post mostly in English, but also few times in Portuguese.
The Computational Complexity blog takes on the question of the conference-based publishing culture in computer science, and whether in-person vs virtual vs hybrid conferences can really be said to be working, now that we have enough experience going back and forth between these modalities and the novelty of the virtual and hybrid formats has worn off: http://blog.computationalcomplexity.org/2022/08/conference-modality.html
Heute habe ich auf »meiner« PeerTube einen Vortrag entdeckt, von dem ich sage: Wenn du jemals den Ausdruck #AI/#KI/#KünstlicheIntelligenz benutzt hast oder benutzen willst, musst du ihn sehen:

i found it : the perfect shirt for me
I think about this a lot.
I wonder about what is the biggest "bang for your buck" in terms of giving people a feeling of liberation.
Is it configuration of their own computer to make it safer, running Firefox, or using a person VPN?
Is it writing a program? Maybe using a public API to make something cool and useful?
Is it doing something with hardware? Giving people the ability to make something with their own hands?
What do you think?
every time I teach programming I am reminded how far away from like 99% of everyone else's daily experience when we talk about digital liberation: most people I teach from scratch have never seen monospaced text, and the concept of a "syntax" as a structured series of characters is entirely novel. we fight a losing fight by losing sight of that while discussing the esoteric parts underneath, and we fight an exclusionary fight by supposing that's not important.
