ban peanuts

I only saw him get banned once, was it a more common thing in the past?

it would probably be a lot closer to 50% or even 60% if he didn't get banned all the time lmao
well I think it's happened a few times, but I guess I'm not positive.

that sounds awful
baby i miss you

do you still have guns and cars and knives?

We have to take a Ethics in Computer Science class, but that's it. It's also scoffed at by pretty much everyone, which always bothers me.

Also, write a blog so I can grave my eyeballs with your thoughts more often.
Programmers and software engineers tend to have the worst attitude when it comes to ethics and law. It's an enormous shame that so many of them let their own preconceptions and prejudices make them so close-minded. Stuff like computer ethics, data protection, fairness by design and system transparency should be mandatory in any computer science program. I'm happy to see that some people like you still see it differently.

And I regularly write for legal blogs already. My latest one was on cyberwarfare and what AI applications in conflicts mean from a humanitarian law perspective. Very interesting stuff, especially when you look at how the private sector and companies like Google play an increasingly important part in it. Unfortunately it's all under my real name and I don't really have the time or interest in doing more under a pseudonym. Always open to answer questions or share my thoughts on a particular topic though.
I don't think people realize how poorly many supposedly secure services are implemented. It's not easy or cheap to design a complex system that is also as close to secure as you can get, and programmers tend to be lazy (imho), so it's a recipe for disaster. But I think if more coders realized the importance of data security, both legally and morally, more time would be spent on designing secure systems and testing them.

The Flood / Re: how do i undo going to college
« on: October 21, 2018, 08:35:12 PM »
Undo? You want to choose a different major or just drop out completely?

You could go to some consultation in your college and ask what options you have. Most places will try to accommodate your choices. Anything to stop you from dropping out basically.
i want to go back in time and kill myself before i ever enrolled (or to just stop my parents from pressuring me to do so)

i am requesting step by step instructions on how to do that
Kill yourself then, kill yourself now, what's the difference? You're still dead.
in that case we're all gonna die so why don't we just kill ourselves right now XDD
cuz you wanna be dead and i don't
it's not that you don't want to be dead, it's that you don't wanna have to stop living to get there

or you just haven't thought hard enough about how awesome being dead is
i've thought about it plenty, bro. luckily, i'll be dead in around 60 years no matter what i do, so why not learn about this reality, which is at the very least interesting, as much as i can?

I can go over it more in-depth if you'd like but that should summarize my thoughts. How did you even stumble upon this?
There was an app I was playing with and I looked on the guy's GitHub and found this. Sounded interesting, but I thought the same thing you did when he started talking about standardizing the law. Like, isn't that what case law is for?

None of my CS friends have any real interest in law, which sucks because it's pretty fascinating.

What Can Lawyers Learn from Programmers?
What kinds of professionals spend their days reading, writing, and editing rules?  Two kinds: lawyers and computer programmers. Despite this fundamental similarity, however, they seem to live in different worlds.  That’s probably because lawyers mistakenly think that programmers don’t have much to teach them (and, as a consequence, because programmers try to stay very, very far away from lawyers).  In fact, though, lawyers could learn a lot from coders.

Computer code and legal code are similar in more than a few respects. Both declare operations to be performed under specific sets of conditions, attempt to create definitions that correspond to human activity, incorporate and revise previously-written code, and (hopefully) account for exceptional circumstances. While there are a great many differences as well, there may yet be an opportunity for cross-pollinating knowledge and experience from one field to the other.

Legal systems resemble pre-1970’s software in terms of portability and reusability. Much like how programs and operating systems were bespoke designed unique for each architecture, governance and codes of laws are currently crafted for each environment or government and unable to build upon each other, despite performing very similar functions.

Modern software developers are aware of the recent explosion of new ideas, experimentation, forms of organization and impressive decentralized projects that came with the introduction of suitable layers of abstraction and portability in the form of C and UNIX and later combined with the open source movement and the internet. By freeing programmers from having to rewrite operating systems that did more or less the same thing but with different interfaces, they could focus on actually writing programs, and even port those programs to different computer architectures without having to rewrite the entire application. Instead of writing code in an assembly language that was incompatible with all other platforms, the introduction of a higher-level language allowed programs to be transferred from one environment to another.

While some members of the software profession may take this wonderful state of affairs for granted in the digital realm, in the offline world they live under systems of laws and governance that are still waiting for a common framework, a standardized legal operating system, a basic foundation that hobbyists and experts from different countries and disciplines can openly collaborate on. Many of us may have vague desires and ideas of how to share the lessons learned from portable computer systems with the legal profession, though such ideas are likely worth their weight in gold Dunning-Krugerrands. Now however, a few in the legal profession have attempted to apply these concepts to law.

But first, an explanation of the problem: many people are unsatisfied with aspects of the governments and legal systems they live under, and most people have little agency to come up with their own improvements. There is a high exit cost to changing countries, citizenship, and governments. Improvements and refinements from one jurisdiction cannot always be easily taken and applied to another because of incompatible legal systems, different definitions, unintelligible languages, and jurisprudence. The overhead of experimentation can be great; each new government writes its constitution from scratch, comes up with court systems, has its own legislatures and judges, and so on. This limits the scope for the sort of healthy robust competition and innovation that has been seen in the world of software since the introduction of portable programs and operating systems, open-source development, reusable libraries, and collaboration on a global scale.

Perhaps you would like to create a new set of codes for yourself and like-minded individuals to live by. Maybe you believe laws or punishments are unfair or unjust, or you certain immoral or unsavory behavior should be curtailed. Taxes should go to fund socially useful schemes or taxes are too damn high. Freedom of movement is a basic human right or we need to keep the bad guys out. Whatever your vision, there are practical and theoretical ways of implementing it today, be it via homeowner associations, Special Economic Zones, setting up your own seasteading colony in international waters, founding a religion, or incorporating a new town. There exists a vast number of overlapping codes and laws that govern all people already, but they often lack a shared foundation of well-understood, time-tested common principles. Enter Ulex.

What is Ulex?
In a nutshell, Ulex provides a set of sane legal defaults including a simple system for resolving disputes closely modeled on the system commonly used to arbitrate international trading disputes. There are recommended basic modules for civil procedure, torts, contracts, and property that incorporate best practices as codified by organizations including the American Law Institute/International Institute for the Unification of Law’s (ALI/UNIDROIT’s) Principles of Transnational Civil Procedure, and selected volumes from The ALI’s Restatements of the Law.

Ulex 1.1 can be viewed as a template for creating a legal distribution. It references the contents of the legal packages from quality upstream maintainers, along with some system utilities in the form of meta-rules, optional modules for criminal law, procedural rules and substantive rules. This distribution should not be considered final, complete, or the best legal system for any new self-governing group of people, but rather a starting point for experimentation. Since not everyone who wishes to create a new society is well versed in legal history and modern best practices, having a jumping-off point with quality material curated by a law professor should be useful. Not everyone wanting to build applications may know how to design a working operating system, and they shouldn’t have to.

Creating legal systems by means of references other documents is a common and systematic practice, much in the way that software is rarely written from scratch but instead makes use of libraries of already packaged code. So too can legal distributions be created with a few well-thought references to systems that already work well and some legal wording glue to create a coherent system. Implementation is accomplished via contract law in the context of the host state, a necessary bootstrapping mechanism for now. Ulex version 1.1 includes an optional host sovereign integration module (section 5) if better compatibility is desired.

All that is needed for implementation is for parties to formally agree:

Only Ulex 1.1 shall govern any claim or question arising under or related to this agreement, including the proper forum for resolving disputes, all rules applied therein, and the form and effect of any judgment.

Ulex is not the final answer in self-organizing legal systems but a potential first organizing principle and base layer of abstraction upon which more varied and ambitious legal projects can be based. If a common template and minimum functioning system can be designed, the process and results can be embraced and extended around the world as people increasingly experiment with new forms and options for self-governance. With competing designs and implementations may come, eventually, more inspired and community-driven legal systems all developed in the finest tradition of open source development.

Also it would kill off all the fatties
That's what I was saying towards the end of my post. All the fat ogreish people would turn into skinny attractive people, and the dating pool would no longer be impossible to navigate because it's so filled with grotesque fatties.
I cant wait. Will you be my bf?
To be my boyfriend you need to be (1) not fat or crippled, not have destructive habits, have a good diet, and be decently attractive (2) have good taste in music, movies, and literature (3) you have to be a lefty meaning: (a) you need to feel that capitalism is failing, it's not sustainable for the environment, exploitative, and essentially leeching and pure greed at it's very core (b) the united states is responsible for horrible atrocities around the world and the United States is the real terrorist, fighting wars for profit and destablizing entire regions - and funding 73% of the world's dictatorships which use our weapons to kill people in Yemin, among other things (c) you must feel that transgender identity is valid and non-binary identity (d) while I will accept social democrats as partners, just know that I think we will never get rid of capitalism and switch to any sort of sustainable system as long as the inefficiency and waste of a market economy is still in effect (4) you must be accepting of all forms of sexual expression between consenting adults or autonomous sexual activity, as long as it doesn't involve non-consenting individuals or underage individuals (5) you must be sweet and kind to me and not be controlling and manipulative. Meaning, you need to accept when you disagree with me and not use that as collateral to destroy our relationship, unless I'm committing some sort of serious offense. That means, basically, don't be an SJW. (6) I think religion is fucking stupid and if you have some sort of metaphysical thing where you believe in the supernatural, it might be hard for us to get along because I think that's retarded. It's probably best if you didn't think that. (7) don't be racist.

If you can fit these criteria, and possible a few more I have not thought of yet, then perhaps you could be my boyfriend.
were perfect for each other
