14.3 Bootloader

  • In literal terms, bootloader is code that is executed before any Operating System starts to run.
  • Every Android phone has a bootloader that instructs the operating system kernel to boot normally
  • A bootloader is usually locked on an Android device
    • because although it’s an open source OS, still the manufacturers want you to stick to their Android OS version specifically designed for the device.
    • In order to apply this concept, manufacturers lock the bootloader.
    • With a locked bootloader on Android devices, it is virtually impossible to flash a Custom ROM and forced attempts void warranty as well as usually end up in bricks.
    • Therefore, the first step is to always unlock the bootloader.
    • If you want root, you’d be wanting to flash Custom ROM post-root,
      • and if you want to install a Custom ROM, you’d need to have your stock bootloader unlocked.
      • In simple terms Unlocking the bootloader allows you to install custom Firmware on your Android phone.

20 Marcuse: An essay on liberation

First of all saying that simply just the alienation of the working class, the proletariat was not enough.

Right now, it's not enough to bring about revolution, plenty of ways in which still alienated. Cultural industry maybe. This is from the Frankfurt School, so probably something related to that.

One was any kind of response has to be rhizomatic, you have a narrative that speaks to a number of different elements within the working class.

So, a big part of that kind of revolution is not it's not enough kind of depression and grief. That's something along the lines of changing people's sensibilities has to do with.

Yes, some of the awareness raising was through arts and creativity. This changing the biology people to think differently.

Finally, solidarity.

21 Getting outside the social industry

What are some ways to get outside the social industry? To break the pattern of railing against the spectacle just being part of the spectacle. Like some of the stuff Adorno chats about as being outside the culture industry. Maybe the cyberflaneur stuff. That kind of stuff, draw on some of these movements and look for parallels.

Let's say that the connection is axiomatic. Everything else (likes, replies, etc) is spectacle unless proven otherwise. What new forms can we find that are completely outside of what has gone before? Avoid the formula of the social industry.

40 GPT-3 and me

How to set up little GPT-3 prompts using my wiki as a corpus?

41 Tags vs files/folders

Absolutely. As I’m using a tool like Roam, there are no real limits on “where” information should be. This means that I don’t really need to think in terms of files and folders, but rather can think of digital locations that map to my understanding of the world.

As a result, I can think in “The Gardens”, tinker in “The Lab”, and store books in “The Library”. This mapping is like the thinking equivalent of using a memory palace for remembering facts.

Its rooting in the physical world is what makes it a spatial village, as it occupies real “space” in my mind.

The joy of wikoid systems is you can create/abandon clusters as you feel like it. And it doesn't require you to destroy an old cluster to make a new one.

Yes! This is in a way a critique of systems that force you to establish a hierarchy (place things in boxes). The more you invest in one hierarchy the harder it is to have it evolve. Or "grow" in a garden methaphor.

I believe the alternative is to focus on walking paths (here Lisa Hardy's map metaphor is very useful). Because, as you do in physical spaces, you can over time easily change the trajectory of your paths to support your life or project journey.

42 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

“Group chats are making the internet fun again”, the technology critic Max Read argued that groups have become “an outright replacement for the defining mode of social organization of the past decade: the platform-centric, feed-based social network.”

A bit like… but by s huge platform

43 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

The age of the message board, be it physical or digital, where information can be posted once for anyone who needs it, is over.

44 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

The problem, from the point of view of institutions, is that WhatsApp use seems fuelled by a preference for informal, private communication as such

45 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

Trolling, flaming, doxing, cancelling and pile-ons are all risks that go with socialising within a vast open architecture.

46 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

“Open” platforms such as Twitter are reminders that much social activity tends to be aimed at a small and select community, but can be rendered comical or shameful when exposed to a different community altogether.

47 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

WhatsApp is a machine for generating feelings of faux pas, as comments linger in a group’s feed, waiting for a response.

48 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

Since the 90s, the internet has held out a promise of connectivity, openness and inclusion, only to then confront inevitable threats to privacy, security and identity. By contrast, groups make people feel secure and anchored, but also help to fragment civil society into separate cliques, unknown to one another. This is the outcome of more than 20 years of ideological battles over what sort of social space the internet should be

49 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

O’Reilly coined the term “web 2.0” to describe a new wave of websites that connected users with each other, rather than with existing offline institutions. Later that year, the domain name was purchased by a 21-year-old Harvard student, and the age of the giant social media platforms was born.

50 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

The more idealistic tech gurus who attended ETech insisted that the internet should remain an open public space, albeit one in which select communities could cluster for their own particular purposes, such as creating open-source software projects or Wikipedia entries. The untapped potential of the internet, they believed, was for greater democracy. But for companies such as Facebook, the internet presented an opportunity to collect data about users en masse. The internet’s potential was for greater surveillance. The rise of the giant platforms from 2005 onwards suggested the latter view had won out. And yet, in a strange twist, we are now witnessing a revival of anarchic, self-organising digital groups – only now, in the hands of Facebook as well. The two competing visions have collided

group dynamics” in the 40s. The central proposition of this school was that groups possess psychological properties that exist independently of their individual members. In groups, people find themselves behaving in ways that they never would if left to their own devices.

52 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

Shirky highlighted one area of Bion’s work in particular: how groups can spontaneously sabotage their own stipulated purpose

53 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

Bion’s concerns originated in fear of humanity’s darker impulses, but the vision Shirky was putting to his audience that day was a more optimistic one. If the designers of online spaces could preempt disruptive “group dynamics”, he argued, then it might be possible to support cohesive, productive online communities that remained open and useful at the same time. Like a well designed park or street, a well-designed online space might nurture healthy sociability without the need for policing, surveillance or closure to outsiders

54 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

As late as 2005, the hope was that the social web would be built around democratic principles and bottom-up communities. Facebook abandoned all of that, by simply turning the internet into a multimedia telephone directory

55 TODO What's wrong with WhatsApp | WhatsApp | The Guardian

. Partly thanks to WhatsApp, the unmoderated, self-governing, amoral collective – larger than a conversation, smaller than a public – has become a dominant and disruptive political force in our society, much as figures such as Bion and Lewin feared.

58 TODO Whats wring with whatsapp

Onteretkng view. Seems more about problem of group behaviour than WhatsApp specifically. WhatsApp being a bit of a red herring in some ways.

Like the metadata gathering is partly whats wrong with WhatsApp. Closed group dynamics equally applies to telegram, signal, what have you. WhatsApp is just a convenient stand in for 'chat group'.

59 TODO economic policy in response to Big Tech must go beyond the fascination with data. If hardware is important too, then opening up data is an ineffective idea at best and a counter-productive idea at worst. It could simply mean that the tech giants get access to even more free data – while everyone else trains their open data on Amazon’s servers. If we want to take back control over Big Tech, we need to pay attention to more than just data.

When you 'copy' the idea from another wiki, and have it as a bi-link, that's like a connection between the two. A bridge where someone might jump from one to the other. I had this thought as I had copied antistatic gardens concept. Made me think of synaptic gaps. Wikis that fire together, wire together? Interwiki bidirectional links as the synaptic connections? Networks of wikis, like a neural network? Bit tenuous, but fun to think on.

Parallels a lot of what I thought previously about Wikis being neuronal.

The coronavirus pandemic that threatens to overwhelm the camps will have “catastrophic consequences for the refugees, Greek inhabitants and the rest of European society,” says the petition, launched last week by Dutch medical professors and public health experts.

It is an illusion to think that a COVID-19 outbreak in these camps could be kept under control: 40,000 people are living on a few square kilometres, and there are only a handful of doctors present. Many children and adults are already ravaged by physical and mental traumas.

If Europe looks away now, this situation could escalate to become a medical disaster, which would represent a serious violation of the norms and values of European healthcare. It is our duty to prevent this from happening.
