I have reached the end of the internet.

I'm not turning back... I brought a machete.

Please be obscure.

The common can survive without your help.

The obscure needs you.

The horror of an era replete with magic (technology) is that your choices matter. You can lose your life in here, gazing blankly into a whispering void. Or you can seize great power... wisdom of ages at your finger tips, should you know the correct incantations (search strings) to seek it. But noone will rescue you from the former, should you get distracted in your quest for the latter.

@cwebber yeah. i _dislike_ configuring nginx for anything complicated, because it's a tangled rat's nest of mutually incompatible state machines masquerading as a reasonable syntax, but i don't generally think "if i slip up here the raptors will come and we will all die".

'backups are running' is the new 'compiling'; i get to goof off for a bit.

I have data archives I've barely managed to read any of yet on a bunch of topics .. that were handed to me by friends data-dumping at my request on something I knew they really understood and were enthusiastic about. Once in a while I just pull up the calibre tag for one of those and read a little and give it a virtual hug because these archives are precious to me. They represent both a friend's enthusiasm and caring and also a reassurance that I will have somewhere to turn when my need for that information suddenly becomes crucial. :cyber_heart_sparkle_purple:​​ Even if I can't process it all in the moment, your enthusiasm is a light.

Workspace being pleasant matters. As I get immersed a lot of the fanciness will fall away but it helps me get going. [screenshot: writing LaTeX]

Thinking about @enkiv2 's Guidelines for GUI Composability

All of which I think are very good, but particularly number 10:

"Every object has a visual representation. Every visual representation corresponds to an object."

I think that one is very important, almost totally alien to mainstream UI/UX thought right now, and I would love to know what it implies.

I think it would lead to a "design language* that was an *actual* language in the formal sense.

Can I just say, as much as I like Ribenboim, it's not very readable?

Repeat after me: blockchain is centralised.

You want to tilt the power dynamics to favour social justice? You don’t do that by making a billion copies of the same database. You do it by ensuring that a billion people can have their own unique databases.

Expend your energy to realise topological decentralisation not global proofs. Sure, it won’t make you a billionaire but if that’s what you want, what the fuck you reading my feed for?
