I tried to note down my thinking how deep neoliberalism is engrained in today's society and how good they are in preventing any change. Any comment/criticism is welcomed!

"Galaksija" or Galaxy in Serbian, was a DIY computer from Yugoslavia, invented by Voja Antonić in 1983

It ran on a Zilog Z80 at 3Mhz and had 6K RAM and 8K ROM max. You built the whole thing, including the keyboard

Here's the complete listing from the Računari magazine (January, 1984) with the complete build instructions including the keyboard wiring (language is Serbian, I think)

Ok, I finally get to read a book ("capitalism realism"). Nice one, I really liked it, so I go to look up the author (Mark Fisher) and guess what - he died, suicide from depression:/ WTF, what kind of books are appealing to me:)

I need to try out what will happen if you feed GPT models with sentences like "While communism/neoliberalism is really good/bad..
" and see how it will continue sentence:)

Isn't it sweet when OpenAI, very frightened that its neural network will be used for bad things (hint: just PR) mentions potential threats and lumps Marxism with terrorists, white supremacy, jihadists... didn't know they are in same category. Must be very dangerous stuff, this socialism thing. Here is link and screenshot:
