There are always at least two sides to every argument. Sometimes, however, one of those sides is batshit crazy and not worth consideration.

I've been playing with landscape generation in #unity3d. In this video I add Unity's new 3rd-person controller asset, complete with a cool robot, and a little ambience, then take him for a walk in the mountains. #indiedev #gamedev invidious.fdn.fr/PO4b2pvRpI4

“So you just want to let him off scot-free for insurrection because he’s no longer in power? That’s like acquitting Jeffrey Dahmer because he’s full.” -- Stephen Colbert

I’m actually sympathetic to these freedom folks. After all, there was a time when I too believed I should be able to do whatever I want without worrying about how that could impact other people. But then my kindergarten teacher explained why that was wrong.

The right to choose is a woman’s right and a woman’s right alone. Every woman in Canada has a right to a safe and legal abortion. We’ll never back down from protecting and promoting women’s rights in Canada and around the world.

Over yonder on @ZDNet, Jason Perlow, aka @jperlow, speaks the microblogging truth of decentralization without every once mentioning @joinmastodon. :-)

Nah, it wasn't planned at all. That whole January 6th thing was just a bunch of people caught up in the moment.
Amazing to watch, but chilling.
Highest-res drone footage of the Andover, KS #tornado which has received a preliminary rating of EF3. Note how the tornado propagates via vortex dynamics and likely terrain. Incredibly, no lives were lost by this tornado

The morality behind information must be judged on its impact. All fiction, whether a fairy tale, an epic novel, or a movie, is a collection of information woven together in a tapestry of both truths & a good helping of falsehoods but stories about elves aren't necessarily amoral.
Data is information, and information is data. Information, however, may or may not be factual. The concept of "misinformation" is ridiculous for that very reason. Information may be misleading, or just plain false, but it's still information.

Information, by any definition, is data. However, as I stated in my last tweet, the information may consist of a datum and nothing more.
Data, and even a datum, is information. Some might argue that you need enough data to produce something that might be called information, but even a single datum tells you something, even if that something is that a datum exists.
