The visual cortex has arrays of neurons (or neuronal columns?) which detect specific orientations of objects in the visual field.
Scientists could see this because they could push this electrode into the tissue while showing the live animal subject lines of various orientation. What's unclear in the lecture and in this image is whether what they're measuring was a single neuron or the spikes from a handful. Is each of these vertical slices a cortical column?
This pertains to feasibility of bio-based AI/ML modelling because there are many fewer cortical columns (150k) than neurons (20b) in the brain. Still more interested in developing a small component with feedback loops, etc but thought this was interesting.
Quickly mentioning the Quoted Posts issue in Ecko.
The link I mention is just https://github.com/magicstone-dev/ecko/issues/477
... continued talking to a camera about Fediverse, Mastodon and C4.
Apparently artists are fighting back against generative AI by posting protest images where they'll be scooped up as source material.

Ecko is a fork of Mastodon with extra features requested by the community.
How does it compare?
There doesn't seem to be a good system-level diagram that captures what we know about the human mind. Based on reading, listening to podcasts and some meditation this is my attempt. My goal is to determine where is tech weakest? Has anyone attempted to build a complete prototype?
Been writing a lot more recently and it's just good. One trick to try is stream-of-consciousness, not stopping or going back to edit. I found myself still using backspace and stopping so made this single pager to help turn it into an exercise.
Write Without Stopping:
Ecko now has themes that help improve accessibility in a very simple way. If a toot has media with no caption, it gets a red border as shown/described in the attached images.
These new themes are now live on https://c4.social. Admins of the adventurous sort can add to their Mastodon instance with the changes shown in https://github.com/magicstone-dev/ecko/pull/392/files
Thanks to @blindscribe for raising the issue and providing the CSS tweaks!
One of the things I love about buying used #books over the internet is the assortment of notes and cards that are sometimes included.
This one feels like one of those little objects that could be the center of its own story.
You want themes? We got themes. 😂
Having trouble currently with the latest Ecko docker builds but this is on https://ecko.magicstone.dev which is managed via YunoHost.
Please report any issues at https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/ecko_ynh/issues and have a nice day.
Isn't it funny how often things that should be simple can get flipped and become anything but?
Here we have a simple faucet with hot and cold water, but in the common case that it takes a while for hot water to appear, one wonders which way for cold?
Is it up because the handle should go in the direction of the blue dot or down so that the blue dot is brought into some position relative to the base?
