Hello Lains, I have created a server on Discord for "intelligent and interesting" discussions,
I am now searching for members as the server is really small as for now.
I thought that Lainchan would be a good place.
I'm hoping for the server to become a place where all the creative ideas can be shared.
There is also complete freedom of speech.
The discussions include philosophy, programming, games, some occasional memes and more.
Here is the invite

There is also a secret
channel on the artificial intelligence Discord server. If you would like access, just PM a founder (both lains) and they will give you the hidden lambda role. or


>intelligent and interesting


>hey lains just join this SIGINT C&C server, stop asking questions already


Discord is closed-source trash.

>however, when google censors you, it's really at the end of the day your fucking fault for not using software that respects your freedoms.

So you think it is mainly the artists fault in this (youtube) scenario?

>and even if you're (arguably) forced to post on youtube, you are not forced to abstain from posting elsewhere / hosting your own content in ways that respect your freedoms.

I mean it makes no difference to my point whether you can host content your own way as well as having it uploaded to youtube because it's still on youtube. When the choice you want to choose can have awful consequences and pain points you tend to choose another. Now imagine if most of the population feels like that. Or imagine if most of the population is misinformed by propaganda by the same entity.

The fact of the matter is that (for whatever reason) the u.s. government is letting corps arm themselves freely (or at least cheaply enough that they continue) and create pain points for everyone.


LAAAAAAAAAAAAME, this is so boring
>Duh a company in based California wants diversity!? Outrageous.
>I'm gonna shave my neckbeard and remain a virgin in solidarity with James Damore.
I guarantee every one of you who is upset about this would also be defending a company that refuses to hire any person of color.

>So you think it is mainly the artists fault in this (youtube) scenario?
If an artist posts work to youtube, and that work is censored, and the artist is upset about it, then they should have uploaded to a site / service that respects their freedom. Yes, I believe it is the artist's fault in this scenario.

If someone other than the artist illegally uploads their content to youtube, and that content is censored, I have no qualms with that. I don't want to get into IP laws right now, so shying away from what I personally believe, google absolutely has a right and is infact legally obligated to remove / censor that content.

>because it's still on youtube

If what you care about as a content creator is censorship, then it does make a difference. Uploading to multiple locations can only strengthen your chances of not being censored, and thus protecting your freedoms.

If what you care about as a content creator is people pirating your stuff, and protecting your rights in this case means preventing piracy (which is what I think you're getting at, correct me if I'm wrong) then you may be right, free and open source software can't prevent your content from being pirated. But no software can. It's virtually impossible to defeat piracy. If your audience is large enough then piracy will always be an option for consumers. Using youtube because you believe it's a way to curb piracy sounds misguided to me, but I know very little about youtube's piracy policies.

>Or imagine if most of the population is misinformed by propaganda

I already hold such an opinion haha. If people only use google sites ever, and never hear about sites other than google, then I feel sorry for them, but that doesn't mean google has any obligation to those people to protect their freedom of speech or really to inform them of other sites at all. It is up to them as an individual to protect themselves by using FOSS web services / web services that respect their freedoms or by rolling their own.

are you a troll


>Durr Google is, liek, communist!
>A growing number of leading left-wing websites have confirmed that their search traffic from Google has plunged in recent months, adding to evidence that Google, under the cover of a fraudulent campaign against fake news, is implementing a program of systematic and widespread censorship.

To the people who aren't corporate cattle and use critical thinking to arrive at legible sources of information - this would be obvious. Unfortunately this cannot be said about the OP.

I'm down for matrix. Discord, no.


so much for .jp being more 1337


Keep your chin up mate. I think discord is stupid but hopefully they move to something else soon.


>I guess this means that this is a new Discord server?
The server is just there for people who already use the service. It is a decent venue for brewing soykaf, but I do not recommend talking about anything sensitive over the platform, as Discord is proprietary software and servers cannot be self-hosted.

if y'all care, I'll keep it running.

Hello, this is my first time on this website, and my first time really looking into the cyberpunk culture at all. I was on another site helping someone with a cybersecurity related issue. I started looking through a few of his older posts since he seemed like someone who actually had potential rather than the thousands of people claiming to. Someone had posted a link about cyberpunk which I decided to explore because it seemed interesting.
The link eventually lead me to one of the many threads trying to define cyberpunk. Reading that was like.. wow. I should almost put this thread in /feels. I had to stop reading the thread a few times from that rush of emotion I kept getting. It was like for the first time I found the perfect place for me. I'm sure this sounds over the top and posibly edgy, but it's true. Not just the thoughts, but the culture and the aesthetic and the atmosphere.This place seems so in line with how I feel it's almost unreal.
I want to be a part of this community.

I guess this is an introduction of sorts. So I'll say that I'm in cybersecurity, and I take privacy very seriously which goes well with security. I also do some programming, and I'm constantly learning new skills every day. I used to have a place where I had instructions and taught people how to secure their computers and phones and such. Tought them all about PGP, encryption, the flaws in them, how to defend against those flaws, things to not do, things to do. It was mostly focused on security, since teaching anonmity to someone is a very hard thing to do since there's so many habits you have to break. Either way, I feel like a lot of the pages would help cross out some items on the Ideas For Topics thread. I might recreate them at some point.
I haven't decided how much I'm going to reveal about myself, so I'll leave it there for now.

Are there any recommended threads I should read or anything along those lines? I've read the rules and faqs but that's not really what I mean.

I'm excited, although sad to see how long it's been since some of these boards have had new topics.

Welcome. We hope you enjoy your stay. Check them all out. Make a few threads. Don't be afraid to "necropost" either. Things are in flux right now. This is a pretty comfy place though. Your place wouldn't happen to be Telecomix would it?


Cringiest post on the entire website but welcome non the less
show /prog/ some love


>Don't be afraid to "necropost" either. Things are in flux right now. This is a pretty comfy place though.
This. Have a look around and be sure to check the catalogs. Many threads really deserve to be rekindled.


I think would be more worthy of that title.


Welcome, Alice!

There are a lot of threads on here, some more active than others. Activity has been going up recently quite a bit. Glad to have you here.

I've been reading some about time banks, and tried out Timerepublik recnetly..Haven't made any deals yet, but I figured I'd talk about them anyway.
So it's just a system where everyone records how much time other people spend doing things for them, and that counts as credits they can sue to ask for other people to do stuff. This seems pretty useful in a setting where you have a lot of people doing miscelanious stuff (sketching, writing, coding, producing music) but not neccisarily a lot of coordination. I figure it'd be nice in that it could fill in a space between doing open requests and regular comissions, where you've got some assurance that people are putting rougly about as much time into doing things for the community as other people are spending to do stuff for them.


Whoah, this looks interesting. How would one go about integrating this into something like lainchan though?


some sort of board-specific plugin for >>>a probably

Let's say it is time for retirement.

If you were to pick a place where you could spend your retirement days in peace without being bothered, where would you pick and why?
