1. power switch only works if the gov could give JARVIS commands? Anyone will feel the need to remedy.

If you're furloughed and need insulin, there's a group trying to arrange supplies at mobile.twitter.com/Alt_OCHA

After they used pinch-zoom as an example of an intuitive gesture based on real world interactions and thus requiring no training, I may have silently wondered whether they'd ever used a physical object. Thankfully, the professor heckled that point for me.

Speaker today on "natural user interface". I may have heckled a little.

#UNICEF wants to invest in #FreeSoftware "The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, #OpenSource technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children and young people", further "UNICEF requires that all code, content or hardware developed and tested be open source and be publicly available."... Great initiative! ungm.org/Public/Notice/82482

I have a lot of incoherent thoughts about UI, technology as artifact, and the magic inherent in its use. Which is annoying because I have to give a talk on 'UI Design' which is not that.

@bhtooefr @feonixrift I was just wishing for such a thing earlier today. Chrome's bookmarks are primitive; Firefox's are buggy; the commercial bookmarking and link-sharing sites are increasingly either dead or unappealing for various reasons. A federated alternative seems like a reasonable possibility. There are a few projects that look to be reddit-like which might be adapted to a more del.icio.us-like format.

"Why can’t we move past cyberpunk?"
slate.com/technology/2019/01/h

In our cyberpunk *present* where megacorporations ruin lives, create global fascism, and end habitability of Earth past 2030, w/ extinctionary-capitalism, cliche 80's retrofuture is escape from futurelessness. And yet, true *punk* - resistance to overwhelming oppression - seen in works like Neuromancer, The Windup Girl, Sorry to Bother You, & mass-protests at pipelines and Paris streets, is more necessary than ever.

@feonixrift Somewhere I've proposed some sort of automated federated Yahoo/DMOZ clone, where your friends curate things through tagging, providing context, and sharing...

(Which I think would end up presenting del.icio.us/Pinboard-style stuff in the categorized Yahoo/DMOZ-style format?)

@feonixrift We're implementing the primordial Google (how many folks link to a site for a topic) using meat-brains instead of silicon counters.

Trend noted: Uptick in people asking for site recommendations on the fediverse instead of googling.

Google has failed. An adhoc mechanism routing around them is emerging. What remains is to smooth its operation.
