The question is, if someone else already set up the infrastructure with terraform (e.g. on AWS), and then I check out the repo and try to apply changes, it complains that all the resources already exist. What do?

Anyone know terraform and willing to answer a nooby question?

re: NFTs, nazis 

The biggest red flag about this article is that it uses the same type of "baking" thought-style that QAnon conspiracy theorists use to launder unrelated connections into "proof" by way of claiming esoteric symbolic correspondences between two different things are evidence of of a causal relationship between those things.

NFTs, nazis 

If you see an article being passed around that tries to claim that the BAYC NFT group are secret neo nazis please don't re-share it. It's going to make its way to the fediverse in about 2 days, if past trends are any indication. The article is passed on magical thinking and not actual evidential claims, it promotes uncensored Nazi symbology, and there are reasons to believe it is designed to be amplified in order to influence people's behavior. It's bad information (regardless of whether the underlying claims are true or not) and junking up the information ecosystem.

Seeing security researchers salivate about exploiting NFTs on birdsite is pretty funny though.

Finally hit my mental health wall with the pandemic.

This weekend my daughter went to continue reading an ebook she has available to her from her public elementary school on the Epic Reading Platform getepic.com/sign-in

She got an error message saying that the book was only available on school days and to read on the weekend she would need to subscribe for $9.99/month.

This NFT explainer, linked here already by many, is amazingly good:

That said, this sentence is just art:
> This is what makes [NFT] enthusiasts so deeply unreliable: they have meaningful financial stakes in an intangible, volatile thing that exists entirely as a collective ideoform.

I promise the rest of the video is very clear and easy to understand, cuts through the bullshit like knife through butter. But that sentence... that sentence is *dense*.

Signal, NFTs 

Looks like Moxie has converted to being a full time NFT platform creator. Seems to be the direction that many of the tech builders are going.

I think I finally figured how to keep my log notes in Obsidian for all my different life areas in a way that actually sticks as a practice.

Each area gets its own "homepage". Every day I start a daily note and add all the tasks, tasks, log notes, thoughts, etc for every thing I do that day, grouped by area.

Then sometime later I will go back through the last N days worth of daily notes and use the Note Refactor plugin to extract each section of notes into a separate note with the days date, and then cross-link that to a running log of notes on the homepage for that area.

The end result is that each hub area of my life has an ongoing log of what I worked on, what I need to do, and any writings I produced, that I can go back through as a history. At the same time, my sequence of daily notes also has a similar cross-domain view of what I worked on each day.

I got a monitor arm for my standing desk and now I feel compelled to actually use it as a standing desk because I'm not hunching down to look down at my monitor. :blobmindblown:

But seriously, I’m reading a paper right now called “Data organization in spreadsheets” :blobsadrain:

I went for a long walk in the snow to do an errand and I think my eyebrows are still frozen.

The author's further comments say:

"Every node/entity is one markdown file. The top of the file has something like:

Tags:

You can fill the file with info on that particular subject, including a photo or anything. Internal links are made with [[Watson]] where 'watson.md' is a file Slightly smiling face"

"Graphs are created fully automatically. And when I was editing a markdown file in VSCodium, I saw that the graph was updated in real time. I also installed the 'dataview' plugin, sonI could create lists where a person/location etc was mentioned in stories"

"For the tagging: I used RegEx to go over pieces of text with Mr/Mrs, one capital and a second word with a capital, block of strings with street/road/lane etc, and so forth. I did it the hard and geeky way"

(Apologies for the twitter screen shot but...)

This would be an amazing research data collection methodology using Obsidian.md. I have to figure out how they did this.

@pixouls check this out!

I think one of the reasons why many people in the United States context don't take cryptocurrencies seriously as having any potential to be a liberatory technology (as they are sometimes seen in other countries) is because this is typical of who is driving cryptocurrency adoption in the US: mega corporations like Walmart (or celebrities and billionaires like Kim Kardashian and Elon Musk).
