Hey /g/, there is something that bothers me.
Why is that i see so many people using and learning things like Photoshop, programming 3D modeling and animation or 2D animation and drawing but i don't see many "Motion graphic designers" or whatever they are called ? Like movies are like 150%CGI nowdays and every kind of movie uses some sort of CGI so wouldn't more people interested in this sort of stuff? I have been trying to learn some low-level After effects and this shit is fun as fuck, for sure compared to modelling and programming (even if programming is most of what i do). I am even considering trying to use more time of my days on learning more of AE and things like this. is it worth it? I wouldn't mind this becoming my job some day if it will keep being as fun as it is when i learn more about this sort of stuff.
What the fuck are you talking about? Motion graphics, like most TV/film related fields, is extremely competitive and grueling. As an example, it is the norm for internships to be unpaid and there are lots of people competing for those positions. People competing to work for free. And because it's so competitive, you actually have to be good at what you do for a chance at a "real" job. Once you get that job, you're working long hours for pennies. I don't know where you are, but believe me, there are lots and lots of motion graphics people out there.

Probably should've mentioned I dropped out a few years ago when I realized how "passionate" you have to be about anything film/TV related to find success. That or have connections. Now I'm NEET but slowly learning Swift and heavily considering going back to school for computer science, or else grinding out personal projects to get a job.
What are the downsides?
I can't stand Windows and Linux but want more bang for my buck than a Mac Pro so I'm thinking about going balls deep on a hackintosh build.
>Much more cost efficient
>Better resale value
why aren't there any smart plugs or devices that run on open source firmware and can be controlled with open source apps?
That... Is actually an excellent question anon.

I don't know, seems a little too convenient. How'd he really get caught, /g/?
also he immediately """"killed himself"""" once imprisoned
Why doesn't he just merge this with uMatrix?
There's so much overlapping functionality it's silly to keep them both separate. He already said he doesn't have time for uMatrix anymore.
At least port the matrix view over to uBlock.
He initially imagined that they'd be used differently. ublock would be strictly static filtering which used regex (mostly for filtering ads) and umatrix would be matrix filtering which could block based on filetypes. Then he added dynamic filters to ublock which kinda duplicated some of the functionality of umatrix. As of right now ublock can block *some* content but not all of it and it's not as intuitive as umatrix is. I want him to bring matrix filtering to ublock.
is it worth it?

Memes have a cultural value. Viral media can spread through the nets like vd spreads through a prostitute. You're walking along enjoying your picture nad then WHAM burning piss (aka some programmer got fired for sexism).
What it means is that memes not only have a political value but they have a monitary value.
It used to be that 4chan was the hive mind but now the whole internet is the hive mind and hte hive all collectively shared memes to push the political and fiscal agenda forwards. Fidget spinners are a meme and then suddenly million sand millions of fidget spinners are sold. There are fidget spinners at the store I work at because of it. There are fidget spinners at the dollar store. Thrift stores are being loaded with fidget spinner donations that they don't know what to do with. Fidget spinners are ending up in landfills.
Memes have power. They are like a cryptocurrency that nobody has yet learned how to monetize or crack.
If you can post a strong enough meme you can change history. Imagine if the person who made the frogposting meme had drawn a chicken instead.

I do think some groups inside military/intelligence agencies have the technology to interact bidirectionally with the brain.
The only reasonable point I can bring to the conversation is that in some areas of research military has been almost 50 years ahead of civil research.
Do you think that in 30 years we won't have technology to "read" a significant part of brain activity?
To get an idea of the state of civilian research on this topic you can watch the talk about Facebook's brain-computer interface for typing-from-thoughts, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy1HdFqTr6A
Even more so, military and intelligences have an history of complete disregard for human rights when it comes to research on humans (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unethical_human_experimentation_in_the_United_States), while civilians are limited to what and how can be research.
For example: in civilian research you can't put a person in an fMRI and map the changes you see while you fire on him all kinds of EM radiations.
PS. not Terry, but I would like him if he just wasn't wasting his skills.
You're probably just going schizo paranoid and need medical help.
The government can beam sound at you, yes. Using directional speakers or generating sound waves with em radiation.
But you think they're mind reading and that's not possible without basically putting electrodes on your head.
I actually work with neuron machine interaction in my PhD. My go-to metaphor is that we're like cavemen scientists trying to understand a ferrari. Yeah, we figured out why the wheels are round and we can pop the hood, but we have no fucking clue how to make it and how to repair or alter it.
I hope you're not lying because I know of a few doctors that are opposed to the medical industry and have been assassinated for healing people. Dr.Sibi comes to mind, Dr.Max Gerson passed naturally(I believe), and there must be others.
One thing that comes up in the compartmentalization in the military industrial complex and the private sector(DUMBs).
Colleges do not have access to that content. Be very weary of what you learn in college. It may be propaganda. Project MK ultra is supposedly still in full swing.
Considering everyone in the city has a wifi router and a cell phone in their house it should make you wonder what types of manipulations are possible rather than what you are being told from someone who's job(life) depends on a set curriculum.

Every fucking time.
I downloaded pic related's 50th anniversary edition - it has the album both in mono and stereo. In order to listen to this the first time, which version should I go with?
Who did this?
Does /g/ use tablets for work? Thinking about getting one to replace my x220.
/g/, I'm willing to finally upgrade my TV to get a 4K one, I've found that for what I can spend there are 3 valid options
The Samsung KS8000
The Sony X800E
The LG OLED
Between the first 2, basically the only difference is that the Samsung has a true 10Bit panel while the Sony has a technology that mimics 14Bit (or something like that) and possibly the Sony has a better video processing (clearer images). But I don't really know which one is truly better.
Now, I've also found for about the same price the LG, which is an OLED but of last years generation (if I stand correct). I just wanted to know if OLEDs are just a meme, if the fact that their brightness level is shit compared to LEDs is a problem (I would keep it in my bedroom) or if I should just buy the LG as OLED has better blacks and all that shit (also the LG has a 10Bit panel too). The only problem is that it's curved. Now, while I know it's a meme, it is also one of the least expensive OLEDs I found, is curve actually worse or indifferent/depends on the preference?
Thank you for helping a poor uni student not to waste money
