Am I doing this right? Well, whatever.
Today was pretty much a nothing day. I didn’t have to work, so I mostly just sat around and did some stuff on personal projects. Worked a bit more on the outline of PROJECT ACADEMIA and, after a quick chat with Sharlenne, I’m pretty happy with where that’s wound up.
I’m still majorly concerned about that whole YouTube COPPA situation. But I did sign the Change.org Petition pertaining to it. And I advise anyone else interested in guarding YouTube from this overly intrusive and aggressive policy do the same. If it goes into effect the way it is currently, this would threaten a lot of channels and have a generally negative impact on the platform. It would also ironically de-incentivize “kid-friendly” content based on the consequences of what marking channels/videos as such would be. It would instead encourage a massive push towards exclusively “mature” content. But only in so far as the suits in the FTC consider to be mature. It’s alarming in the extreme and needs to be further looked into before it goes into effect.
Not much else to comment on, today. Certainly nothing that’d top that. And my thoughts have been pretty stable. I slept-in pretty hard. Wasn’t aware I was actually that exhausted. This is nice, all things considered. An actual chance to de-stress is appreciated. Now on to the next day.
