"...deepfakes are being used in web ads to make Elon Musk, security specialists, and others appear as though they are endorsing products..."
I would automatically give anything Elon Musk endorses a wide berth.

https://fullfact.org/europe/online-cost-brexit-net-contributions/ has the numbers up to 2020 - £200bn worse off since Brexit vs. £216bn contributions. I can't see how extrapolating the numbers up to 2022 can do anything but put it over the £216bn mark. I mean, you can pretend that because we don't know the exact number, it might not be true, but the evidence pretty much confirms it.
You want different? How about TempleOS - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TempleOS
Maybe there is a reason there are only 2 desktops? You want an area to work, an area for indicators and an area for controls. It's difficult to get diversity when there are only 3 elements you need.
You can't make any money from your spare space. A couple of months ago I rounded up all my spare hard drives (about 1.5 TB) and started farming. The "estkimated time to win" started off at 10 years and got higher as more people added their HDDs to the network. God knows what it would be now. To have any chance of getting a payout you need to invest in 100s of TB. When I gave up I was competing with 24 EiB of network space or 28,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes.
The people at NASA can't solve that problem and I'm pretty sure they aren't suggesting that their policy will solve that problem.
A problem they CAN solve is that they feel some names are inappropriate. You might disagree, but what they name things is up to them, surely? You aren't getting harmed in any way, so why not just let them use names they are more comfortable with rather than going all gammon about PC gone mad?
I remember that programs on Ch4 marked with a red triangle promised much but delivered little. From the amount of fuss at the time, you would have thought the programs would involve all sorts of hairy (or shaved) shenanigans, but it was invariably some interminably dull foreign-subtitled dross with a flash of hairy minge half way through.
Depends how many and how much the same they are. It wouldn't be at all surprising if two macros that did the same thing ended up being called the same thing by two independent developers. In a huge code base that's going to happen a lot. Are there any statistics or is it just one bloke saying "it's a lot"?
This is the leaflet in PDF form:
Looking at it now, it seems very reasonable and understated.
As a jaded 51 year old who always thought CYOA was pointless, I quite enjoyed the Black Mirror episode. But that was purely because the CYOA aspect was an integral part of the story line. The trouble is that you can only do that once, so CYOA is now back to being pointless and shit for any future reincarnations.
My understanding is that while the transactions are (necessarily) public, there is nothing in the transaction to link it to an actual person. It's only when they try to turn the bitcoins into something real that there is any chance of finding out who owns them. e.g. they buy something that is delivered to an address.
