I’ve been putting off my annual internet detox. The FOMO is too strong! Well, I’m heading out on a road trip in the next day or two for three weeks. And I won’t be back in time to lobbycon DEFCON. Can’t miss what I can’t see. So now seems a good time to log out for a while.

With any luck, I will pass through Ellijay sometime in the first weeks of August. I’ll pop back in around then.

Otherwise, I hope to see everyone back here in a October.

Was enjoying the rundown on hacker movies on the HOPE stream... guess I'm surprised it took 50+ minutes to hit this.

Work laptop arrived. Now I have an excuse to watch HOPE for the rest of the day while ansible playbooks run on it.

We haven't been talking about restoring the future enough.

End of the day's progress. The laptop is now back at the Phoenix distrubtion center.

Well, I hope somone figures out to ship a package out of the metropolitian area before tomorrow.

Can we get a list going of HOPE speakers and their talks/times who are on the fediverse?

New work laptop shipped out from Phoenix via USPS on Tuesday... tracking number updated this morning to say it's made it to... Scottsdale.

Ugh.

I fall firmly in the "Home Computer Generation" and this hit home pretty well.

Apparently this thing is supposed to be eggs benedict. An association I would never make considering it resembles and tastes nothing like it.

It is particularly vile that McDonalds has so polluted my mind with their ad spam that I can't think of an English Muffin and Egg sandwich without wanting to call it a McMuffin despite the fact that McMuffins are fucking gross.

“Social media wasn’t web 2.0, it’s what killed Web 2.0!”

I enjoyed this article on what web 2.0 actually was, and I’m tickled that I only saw it because @BenCollver posted it to comp.misc.

Things feel slow lately.

Granted, I’m not helping. Been deep in a rabbit hole of my own thoughts as of late

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
