On their way to a Fermentation Lot, residents of a small pod collect remnants; scraps of gold and other metals from discarded devices to be sold.
Warding off Dwellers during a slow migration, these savvy repairist trade in tarot and other tinctures.
Definition: Internet communities that have disincentivized individual attention-seeking and prioritized communal or pair bonding. The oxyweb is spatially unbound – communities might live as niches on mainstream social networks, as parasites hijacking other groups’ platforms, or as exit-driven networks with self-hosted infrastructure. The term oxyweb is derived from the ‘love hormone’ oxytocin, and is united only by its opposition to the use of dopamine exploiting behavioural tricks and design patterns in advertising-driven mainstream social platforms.
The swelter of salt
Haneul checking the machinery that would absorb 500 atmospheres of pressure 5 kilometres below the ocean's surface where air cavities in living things are crushed and proteins fold in on themselves. The piezolytes printed into the vessel's carbon skin would help stabilize the thing down there, but make it reek of thick wet fish. The marine engineering unit calls it Jijneun.
Trawling the trench for manganese nodules, kicking up iron ores the size of walnuts. Thermal vents superheating the water without boiling it from the pressure. Extremophile life forms metabolizing heat gradients at vent lips lined with the richest ores. Extremophiles, metals, and mining equipment that smells like dead fish – that's all that's down there.
Not even dead matter – those bits of captured sun glinting slower and slower down the ocean’s trophic cascade until the oppressively heavy nothing of the bottom stops the few carbon molecules left. Just the howling of the vessel as it scrapes the bottom.

Facebook Community Guidelines

[ Part III, Section 2.1 ] Community participation to ensure model diversity in content moderation
Facebook’s content moderation is currently performed by a diverse jury of 97,357 Machine Learning models. Neurodiversity in neural nets has led to improvements in decision-making around a wider variety of content. The current jury process is particularly well suited to edge cases where typical models fail to make reasonable decisions.
Facebook encourages users to submit their own Machine Learning models to the jury — currently, over 80% of the jury comprises models selected from Facebook’s user community. Guidelines on model parameters and training data are provided in Appendix E of this document. The final outcome of a jury proceeding is determined through an automated democratic process. When content passes through moderation filters, each model gets to cast a single vote assigning the given content to a category. Votes per category are tallied and simple majorities win. In case of a tie, a human moderator is alerted to make the final decision.
