"Smiley isn’t just about pushing more product. Its host of sensors also collect data on shopper interactions, including how they move about the store. Imagine it as an alternative to someone with a clipboard walking around the store all day taking notes on how people move about, but successfully selling more candy while it does its job."

Well this is... Fun

COVID, good personal news 

I just got my COVID-Test back! I don't have 🎉

COVID 

I'm going to get tested for in half an hour after I've had diarrhea, headaches and nausea for the last few days... Wish me luck

Hope it was just some bad food...

Wish me luck! I really want a serial terminal :p

Probably gonna be outbid at the last second though.

Videogames (being played badly by me) 

So I've installed "Aim Lab" from today.

It's a new early access aim trainer for playing FPS-games. After my first round it gave me a summary, where the positive remarks column was empty and the negative remarks column full.

So anyways, I've uninstalled "Aim Lab" from today.

This is your daily reminder that the can burn down too! Keep your off-site and don't rely on the big hosters being safe from data loss.

Hope none of you were affected...

Great Britain 

I love playing "Zoom in on a random part of Great Britain on Google "

Met up with @Jannikkiel yesterday and took some long exposures of the cars driving by on the autobahn. It was a really nice evening.

If you want to feel free to use under CC-BY-4.0. :p

I just wish there was a global magic database of all gay people just available to me so I could go like: "Hey, Database, is PersonXY gay?"

I have someone in my daily life I have a crush on, but I don't have any idea if he's gay/bi, so that's been driving me insane for the last few years.

GitHub has this nice new thing where you can have it generate a 3D-skyline from your contrubution history. I could watch this for hours...

Some water seems to have leaked into the cables in my home, which resulted in my room and the bathroom loosing power... .

At least my PC managed to recover the project I was working on and was saving right when the power went out.

Python Hate, Swearing 

I've just had to debug a script and honestly, just fuck python... Who the fuck thought "hmmm... yes, indentation should have meaning. And tabs and spaces should both work, but not together"

I'm having a minor breakdown over here...

Are YOU with us? Sign now!

40 orgas across Europe. We call on the EU to ban biometric mass surveillance.

For a future in which we are treated like humans, not walking barcodes, in which we are respected and not humiliated, discriminated against or treated like crime suspects, in which our options are not limited by an algorithm based on our body and looks.

Now's the time to act!
The tech is out there, but the EU is drafting new laws on AI.
