It's all about getting users to buy new PCs that can run the AMAZING AI! (I'm being sarcastic here). It's good for AMD and Microsoft's pockets.

Haha. we're officially old. I was an extremely competitive gamer back then. I played Quake 3, UT 99, Tribes 2, America's Army, etc. I was even in a Tribes 2 squad and we basically practiced for tournaments every day.

But now that life is stressful enough with the responsibilities I have, I just can't play competitive games anymore. I just want to enjoy the story. I no longer have the stamina and the reflex for competitive games anymore.

I use Proton Experimental to play my games and they all work without exception. I'm in my late 30s, so I no longer play competitive games that have a kernel rootkit, I mean kernel anti-cheat.

Basically, Linux gaming is like this: If you want to play competitive games with anti-cheat, stay or play in Windows. For all other games, play in Linux.

One theory some analysts say is that since Macron's second term ends in 2027, and since it's his last, if the FN doesn't govern well, then his party might be able to win again.

Basically, they're saying that Macron is playing a dangerous game of chess.

In the '90s and early 2000s, Microsoft's business model was the classic one of selling products to customers. Today, it's all about the cloud, advertising, and AI, where the product is the user.

I agree. Lemmy is not Twitter like, it is Reddit like, it is a forum.

They will just enable it by default later when the heat passes. They always do. You no longer own Windows.

That's where Windows belongs now, in a VM.

I think we are now in a positive cycle:

  • More and more useful comments are posted,
  • Which means more people get interested,
  • which attracts more and more people to the platform
  • That increases the quality and quantity of posts/comments/etc.
  • etc.

Brave is Chromium based. UBlock will be affected by the changes.

Google is getting AI training data from Reddit as part of a new partnership between the two companies. In an update on Thursday, Reddit announced it will start providing Google “more efficient ways to train models.”

The collaboration will give Google access to Reddit’s data API, which delivers real-time content from Reddit’s platform. This will provide “Google with an efficient and structured way to access the vast corpus of existing content on Reddit,” while also allowing the company to display content from Reddit in new ways across its products.

When Reddit CEO Steve Huffman spoke to The Verge last year about Reddit’s API changes and the subsequent protests, he said, “The API usage is about covering costs and data licensing is a new potential business for us,” suggesting Reddit may seek out similar revenue-generating arrangements in the future.

The partnership will give Reddit access to Vertex AI as well, Google’s AI-powered service that’s supposed to help companies improve their search results. Reddit says the change doesn’t affect the company’s data API terms, which prevent developers or companies from accessing it for commercial purposes without approval.

Just last week, a report from Bloomberg said Reddit struck a $60 million training deal with an unnamed AI company. Google Search is currently expanding the test of a “forums” filter that lets you browse through results from sites with human discussion, like Reddit, Stack Overflow, and Hacker News.

Despite this deal, Google and Reddit haven’t always seen eye to eye. Reddit previously threatened to block Google from crawling its site over concerns that companies would use its data for free to train AI models. Reddit is also poised to announce its initial public offering within the coming weeks, and it’s likely making this change as part of its effort to boost its valuation, which sat at more than $10 billion in 2021.

To me, the bot is just spamming this community. What the bot is doing is redirecting the conversation from Lemmy to Reddit.

Research says funding cuts and poor organisation stop Canadians from accessing healthcare – and 20% have no doctor at all

Note: these are my chosen quotes from the articles:

The CMAJ study, led by family physicians and researchers at the University of Toronto and published on Monday, compares the Canadian healthcare system with those of Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and the UK. Those countries were chosen because 95% or more citizens have access to a family physician.

She pointed out that Norwegians and Finns are automatically registered to a doctor or health centre, and those in the UK have a right to register with care providers in their immediate communities.

Many Canadians, however, wait for years on provincial family doctor waitlists. Others have to call around town in hopes of finding someone willing to accept them. In the interim, they cobble care together through urgent care clinics, hospital ERs and, in some cases, private out-of-pocket services.

Immigrants to Canada are increasingly leaving this country for opportunities elsewhere, according to a study(opens in a new tab) conducted by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship and the Conference Board of Canada.

In fact, the number of immigrants who left Canada rose by 31 per cent above the national average(opens in a new tab) in 2017 and 2019.

According to the study, factors that influence onward migration include economic integration, a sense of belonging, racism, homeownership, or a lack thereof, and economic opportunities in other countries, the report revealed.

This is going to be a short and sweet little history of Reddit. Reddit was founded in 2005.

Take a look at what Reddit looked like in 2006: https://web.archive.org/web/20061206235353/http://reddit.com/

Note that it didn't have subreddits back then because the user base was too small.

Look at Reddit in 2008 (December 31): https://web.archive.org/web/20081231080128/http://www.reddit.com/reddits/

Politics had just 72,314 subscribers. Technology had 85,678 subscribers, and the "Nicher" Food subreddit had only 4,438 subscribers.

Lemmy/Kbin follows the same path. Initially, generalist communities like Politics and Technology will have the most momentum and gain subscribers, just like Reddit did back then. As the user base grows, "niche" communities will be able to sustain themselves.

Let's not think about the Reddit of today, let's think about Reddit of old. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Version 1.0.1's scrolling is still extremely choppy to the point that it is unusable on my iPhone 8 Plus. I've tried Memmy, Bean, Avelon, and their scrolling is extremely smooth compared to Mlem's.
