mp_en_viaje: "If you intend to spend your life avoiding objectification, you by that fact and necessarily will spend your life avoiding culture, wisdom, power and respect." tsk. the sad result of that re-read being a growing conviction that as trilema grows larger, the quality of my references grows weaker. i never used http://trilema.com/2014/lets-do-anjie-well-actually-let-me-do-anjie-while-you-watch/?b=If%20you%20in&e=respect#select as a reference point in an
mp_en_viaje: y discussion ; though im pretty sure i've used other reference points in discussions where this'd have workded better.
mp_en_viaje: what the fujck will i do with this disaster, the constant problem of "fuck me, now i can't find it" is one part ; the other part's that well... even when i think i know exactly what i want, an ever growing possibility is that in fact i don't, there's a better option i'm just not thinking of.
mp_en_viaje: if only there were somehow possible to make a trilema compiler, that'd then shit out the AST for it... ☟︎
mp_en_viaje: upon meditation, i do not believe there exists throughout the history of human culture a better dataset to train "ai"/"machine learning" upon.
mp_en_viaje: for one thing, the sheer volume -- larger things can be collected, but then they'd have to be of much lower coherence, something like "the gutenberg database of english literature" ; while similarily coherent things also exist (tho i'd argue it's still a "5, 3, 7, 2 and 4 are similar to 179" sort of similarity) but then they'd have to be much, much tinier.
mp_en_viaje: but for the other, infinitely more important point -- of structure. this is natively digital, it wasn't digitized, it never existed in any other form. this shows, and not just because it links itself and it footnotes itself and structures itself deliberately in countless ways.
mp_en_viaje: similar datasets might of course be constructed deliberately ("take all research paper in x field organized by etvos number or refcount or some metric"), but then they are... wrong! you end up constructing a dataset on some kind or manner of "global warming", which makes it exactly like "vampire fiction" or any other popcultural category, an exercise in kitsch fiction, meaning your ai will not work, for f ☝︎

diana_coman: might as well use my local log and publish it on my blog ?
mp_en_viaje: is the situation basically that neither phf nor framedragger ever published anything, while ben_vulpes has a logger that's... was it published or not ? i recall joint publishing a bot with trinque, that's lacking what, web bindings ? and then spyked was working on one that's not ready and lobbes has one but he never published code ? ☟︎
spyked: mp_en_viaje, diana_coman: from my side, the infrastructure isn't ready, that is, the www server and possibly other pieces that I don't know about yet
spyked: granted, I never set out to publish a logger www, but given the constant need and lack, I'll add it to my list
spyked: initial item that sent me out on wwwistics was the image pastebin that mp_en_viaje suggested
diana_coman: spyked: but you have something working, namely whatever you are using for #eulora logs, right? why not publish that?
diana_coman: uhm, lobbes ^ ☟︎
mp_en_viaje: this situation is not fucking tenable.
mp_en_viaje: it's one thing to "not want to publish your code" ; not particularly respectable, at all, but whatever. if you do that, however, YOU MUST PROVIDE THE SERVICE. if you don't publish the code (even by the very modest yet perfectly acceptable standard of shipping an encrypted bundle to the asking lord) and you don't provide the service, then what the fuck are you doing ?
mp_en_viaje: if i have a lord on the record asking for service TWO WEEKS AGO and bupkiss, what am i supposed to do ? tell them "sorry, this is the republic we don't have fish at..." like in the old joke ?!
mp_en_viaje: irrespective of what "i am supposed to do", what i'm going to do is this : ima give everyone a ~short~ interval to bring their log stacks up to speed, meaning ~absolutely~ a complete and ready to use v-tree (even if it's just one genesis, like idiots) that they can send any asking lord -- and i don't give a flying fuck how "proud" you are of the code you're using, you're what you do not what you say, or what you imagine yourself you wish to be. that
mp_en_viaje: code you are in fact using, that is who you ARE, stop pretending.
mp_en_viaje: i guess ~optionally~ next-day service for any asking lord, in lieu of actual publishing -- which is a cop-out i will close my eyes upon for a limited time in the future. but in general, if you're not willing to share code within the l1, you have no business here at all.
mp_en_viaje: after which ima simply start banning loggers in channel ; and i'll have a very dim oppinion of everyone involved -- for very good cause! ; and i guess then have someone else make a proper logger, which will become mandatory because i'm not authorizing new ones until the old one fucks up.
mp_en_viaje: wth is this bullshit, anyway! left to own devices how about we just driftwood forever into nothingness! when i discovered a problem with mp-wp, at night in fucking minsk, i was also ~publishing~ a solution the next fucking morning, what the everloving fuck already.

spyked: re. ai/ml, supposedly google uses that (and it also crawls trilema.com), but it's useless most of the time. i recall wasting hours finding some particular piece via google, then discovering it by manually crawling or via logs

asciilifeform asked also, to 0 result ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2019-03-06 23:08 asciilifeform: if these were available, could stand up a logger in 10min or so..
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: afaik the closest thing to a publication is ben_vulpes + trinque's item, where the irc and db backend was genesised , for some reason w/out the wwwistic frontend.
asciilifeform: why phf never genesised his, wish i knew, imho it is the most feature-complete one
asciilifeform: ( didn't mp_en_viaje have tea with phf not long ago ? did he say anyffin re subj ? )
mp_en_viaje: ok but that was the bot, iirc the view was "skeleton bot", not even logger specifically
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: trinque's piece is the logger backend.
asciilifeform: but indeed only the back side (db feeder), no www.
mp_en_viaje: i recall there was a lisp bot, and yes then it got a logger appliance. that this is therefore "the logger" rather than the bot... i suppose we're discussing nominalisms
mp_en_viaje: it ~occurs to me~ however, that some trivial glue would readily turn a db pre-populated by this logbot into mp-wp pages.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: what's the gain from feeding it into wp ?
mp_en_viaje: that you can now display it.
asciilifeform: as i understand, you'd suffer wp's geological-time search
mp_en_viaje: wasn't that the problem ?
mp_en_viaje: i have nfi what you're talking about.
asciilifeform: e.g. why trilema has no search box ?
asciilifeform: iirc mp_en_viaje once said 'aint worth the cpu cost'
mp_en_viaje: which it aint ? i got a link into the db via cmdline, why would i implement it via web ?
mp_en_viaje: mp-wp entirely exists as "this thing that displays a database" thing. if you already have a thing that feeds a database, and miss athing that displays it, then mp=wp very well could be it.
asciilifeform: logtron gotta have phf-style search imho, to be of any use.
asciilifeform not eaten mp-wp, does not know whether it includes enableable public search function somewhere, and if so whether can be easily repurposed for by-line srch
asciilifeform: ( BingoBoingo et al -- do you know ? )
mp_en_viaje: really all you need is per-day search ; after that the... selection mechanism, lol! takes care of you
asciilifeform: it would! wouldn't it
mp_en_viaje: yes.
asciilifeform suspects that mp_en_viaje is right, and a logtron frontend could be sewn outta mp's wp with minimal # of stitches.
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, how appealing does the following sound to you : 1. run an instance of logbot, feeding the log into your mp-wp db, so that each day is publishd as a new post ; 2. have a special category for these, such as "logs" or w/e ; add a special search page, such that if one introduces a term is fed a list of days that include it, with the term preselected in the page by url.
asciilifeform: i find it odd tho, that phf et al did not genesis, wtf, phf , didja use seekrit bolix tech in there ? what's the hangup?!
asciilifeform: really imho would rather have genesis of phf's, than a php concoction ☟︎
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: hm, it would even make sense to publish on the younghands.club thing, classroom discussion
mp_en_viaje: ayup!
mp_en_viaje: can obviously be selective, #ossasepia there, that here, whatevers.
diana_coman: well, not like one can't replicate then for any number of channels for that matter (different category each in the db or whatevers)
mp_en_viaje: well, diff db as the case may be. you're running the youngthing off same db ?
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: same db as what? the youngthing is on pizarro's shared stuff; my blog is on my rockchip so separate
mp_en_viaje: so then to publish on youngthings.club the bot gotta insert into that db ; to publish on your blog, other db.
diana_coman: ah, yes, certainly; I meant : if one wants several logs published on the same blog (why not, after all, not as if it can't make sense)
mp_en_viaje: aha
mp_en_viaje: of course, iirc logbot worked off postgres ?
diana_coman: myeah, this is what I was trying to look up because iirc it IS postgres
asciilifeform: iirc mp's wp can be sat on postgres
diana_coman: myeah, it is postgres
diana_coman: so uhm, basically it has to be a different mp-wp installation for logtron specifically?
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, alternatively, you set up a mp-wp on postgres.
mp_en_viaje: "should" work out of box.
mp_en_viaje: ~alternatively~, you write a glue api, taking things from logbot and putting it on your blog. may sound like a bad idea in this narrow context, but perhaps having a blog universal interfacer isn't a terrible idea, seeing how maybe theres more usecases. ☝︎
