πŸ“š COSS Content

  • JJ: "Well, this is quite unfortunate. The way around this is decentralized and actually open AI. @opentensor" Link

  • Peer Richelsen --- oss/acc: "damn @calcom just broke 29k stars on GitHub -- developers really love it who could've known you can build good tech without laravel or rails github.com/calcom/cal.com..." Link

  • Hoppscotch: "We are back with this month's edition of the Hoppscotch TownHall! Join us for a laid-back chat on "Figuring out AI workflows with Hoppscotch" & get an inside scoop on the AI strategies we're planning at Hoppscotch. May 24, 2024 7:00 PM IST RSVP now: dub.sh/W9nNDAk" Link

  • JJ: "Unlike CUDA, Bend feels like Python but runs natively on GPUs (all cores) at near-linear speeds, and zero explicit parallel annotations: no thread spawning, no locks, mutexes, atomics. github.com/HigherOrderCO/..." Link

  • Plane: "Going once, going twice, going thrice The final few hours to get your One license for $100 off dub.sh/plane-one" Link

  • Brian Merchant: ""Open" AI is now a company that: -keeps all of its training data and key operations secret -forced employees to sign powerful NDAs or forfeit equity -won't say whether it trained its video generator on YouTube -lies to movie stars then lies about the lies "Open." What a farce." Link

  • Kelsey Hightower: "I got into tech to improve and leverage my own intelligence; not outsource it to some artificial replacement." Link

  • Kelsey Hightower: "I want my software to run locally, next to my data, on my machine, without all the "send me your data for features" stuff." Link

  • Peer Richelsen --- oss/acc: "i am so excited about this. deep down i somehow believe i inspired @aidenybai to build this, is that true Aiden? always wanted to have performance on autopilot, especially now with AI" Link

  • JJ: "Building a world-changing startup is brutally hard. Don't just "give it a shot" to be cool. Don't let someone convince you to do it because they think it would fit you. Don't raise just because it's offered. When you deeply care about doing a startup as the optimal expression of your obsession, it will still be brutally hard ... but instead of your motivation being contrived and manufactured, it will feel like unobstructed and clear breathing." Link

  • JosΓ© Donato: "currently experimenting with adding image support to @openbb_finance terminal pro see below how I used @bittensorcom tweet to get the most simple explanation possible for how @opentensor $TAO works "no one is the boss, and everyone can join in and benefit." ττ" Link

  • Halvar Flake: "I have two policy recommendations regarding AI: 1) apply existing criminal and civil laws to the parties running them, as you would for any machine. 2) stop wasting time on a non-problem and work on micro plastics and PFAS instead." Link

  • Soumith Chintala: "impressive follow-up from @KelseyTuoc bringing receipts that it wasn't just some standard exit paperwork from OpenAI; they seem to have proactively pressured employees to sign the non-disparagement clause, with crystal-clear threats to exclude them from future liquidity events" Link

  • Melanie Mitchell: "Google, FFS." Link

  • Molly White: "back in my day we called this spyware" Link

  • Jim O'Shaughnessy: ""Now think of finance. In 1982 IBM, then the world's biggest computer company, decided some upstarts at Apple were threatening its future with a new product called the personal computer. Uncharacteristically, IBM acted quickly. It bypassed its own big chip factories ..." Link

  • Heather Meeker: "Data Scraping Opinion Implications for AI and Open Source Copyright Issues heathermeeker.com/2024/05/25/dat..." Link

  • hardmaru: "Incredible blog post by @KilledByAPixel that explains the magic of this tiny raycasting engine and city generator that fits in a standalone 256 byte html file. frankforce.com/city-in-a-bott..." Link
