I’ve been wondering why there have been so many beautiful glowing sunrises and sunsets lately - seems to be stratospheric aerosols from the Tonga eruption https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/15/tonga-volcano-afterglow-creates-dazzling-sunsets-across-new-zealand-and-australia
rental crisis, AirBnB (+)

Finally caught up on the whole sentient Google AI thing and it seems even more dubious than I expected.
If I was an extremely cynical person I might notice that this makes Google's "Responsible AI" division look a bit unreliable, and that it positions questions of consent when using machine learning tools as being about the consent of the computer code as a person, rather than about actual flesh and blood humans affected by algorithmic decisions.

I have a really cool project idea for work. Does anyone have experience using Raspberry Pi Zeros with Ethernet and PoE?
There is a Waveshare PoE hat thing for raspi zero that does PoE.
