Awesome! CC0 FTW! ⌐◨-◨
@df has an excellent discovery tool with Discove.xyz!
Depends on the skeeter. There’s a significant contingent of cryptoartists on there, too. I don’t even make crypto my whole personality and I’ve caught blocks from people I’ve never interacted with. Or maybe it was for posting AI art. Who knows, nbd.
Is anyone else on Farcaster participating in Game of Shrooms this year? Either dropping, hunting, or both. (I’ll try to make at least a couple pieces to drop, but, no guarantees.) 🍄🍄🍄 https://yumfactory.com/gameofshrooms/

Happy Fractal Friday! Larva
BTW, the translation of the text on that Hokusai print is wiiiiild. (Yes, this is the same guy who made The Great Wave off Kanagawa, if you didn’t recognize the art/artist. He did a whole series of erotic prints.) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dream_of_the_Fisherman's_Wife
With Imgur’s new NSFW policy, we may be limited with how spicy we can get with uploads through Warpcast. Testing out the sensitivity of the NSFW filter with some spicy fine art. 🌶️🔥
The default app (Warpcast) supports GIF uploads of up to 10 MB. You should also be able to share larger GIFs hosted elsewhere through a media URL ending in .gif, but I haven’t tested that in a while. Video in NFT embed links *might* be coming soon, hopefully? Maybe? @dwr and @v, any news/updates on that?
There’s VPOTUS and PPOTUS (Presidential Pet of the United States), too.
But don’t take it from me, look at what he’s done. Topics to read up on: the STOP WOKE Act (yes, that’s really what they called it), the retaliatory campaign against Disney, anti-trans bills, 1A attacks on education, the abortion ban, his redistricting fights with his own party, etc.
I’ll front-load this with DeSantis’s worst qualities. He’s vindictive, authoritarian, and has neo-fascist tendencies. He has no ideals or principles besides seeking power. Imagine what sort of ambitious but unscrupulous politician would come out of Harvard and Yale but pretend to be a populist. (still cont)
For context, I’m a native Floridian that GTFO’d about 10 years ago but still follows Florida politics because it affects my friends and family. tl;dr version, **FLORIDA POLITICIANS ARE NEVER TO BE TRUSTED.** Usually for more than one reason. And DeSantis, phew, he’s particularly awful. (cont)
Impressive. FYI, @dwr, this brain-to-image model is a custom implementation of Stable Diffusion. 👀
Ah, there we go. I knew it needed something. https://warpcast.com/mxvoid/0x4b89d9
The Tragedy of Kevin
Computational biology. You wouldn't think to mix binary code with the wet, squishy, messy things that *literally* caused "bugs" in early computers, but it's a huge interdisciplinary field that brought major advances into both biology and comp sci. e.g., biology has both inspired and facilitated advanced AI/ML.
It’s also why we’re talking about canaries ITT. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrant_canary
It’s all the same arguments you’ve probably heard before. The only insight you’ll have is, crypto continues to have an image problem and people are still dismissing the whole endeavor because of the worst actors in the space.
Oh no. I caught glimpses of this Discourse but I mostly missed it. Kinda surprised it didn’t happen sooner, TBH.
It’s still around and well-represented. Personally it’s my favorite model because it’s free, open-source, and can be fine-tuned with additional training images. StabilityAI may have become less vocal about SD on the PR side because of the two lawsuits they’re fielding.
That’s a shame to hear that it’s gotten so bad. Though TBH I never liked Twitter for multiple reasons, and left as soon as viable alternatives (like FC) came along.
