We are all a Ship of Theseus of our emotions, beliefs and knowledge.
This was a seed of an idea I had during the day yesterday, eventually it coalesced into the above as I was laying in bed last night. I don't stop being me if any of these change. I might be a different me, but I'm still me.
Don't give up
26 years ago today I was rejected by Pixar. I followed their advice and sent updated material when I increased my experience and education. A year later I was hired. 25 years later I directed a feature. Don’t give up.#Pixar pic.twitter.com/kOgJ0eWdiE— Angus MacLane (@AngusMacLane) June 3, 2022
Mozilla releases local machine translation
This is very exciting. Up to now these sorts of things rely on the megabrain systems of Google, Microsoft and others.

This extension opens the door for some more privacy when seeking translations.
