When I hear people talking about the "importance of IP" in business, especially folks working for gov't investment agencies, I always think a) they've bought into a bunch of flawed concepts, and b) they have little idea of what "IP" means. There, I've said it.

though not quite back to using a client yet

we'll see how i feel.

even though i have my rss feeds, though they need to be better curated.

thinking about making a comeback here

doesnt seem like much has changed and im sick of reading hacker news for "new" things tbh

Rules of thumb:
1. State #surveillance will never ever be used to reward or acquit you, only to publish or frame you
2. The less data one has about you, the less control (leverage) that one has over you
Spying breeds slavery, coercion, tyranny, fear

inb4 "free speech!"

I AM not a public service nor is speaking to me a constitutional right (in the US). It's a privilege (not in a snobby sense but that it's something I extend to you on my own agency).

I think to not accept this is to not accept my agency to control what I hear/see/say.

Hey, this zine that I worked on in out. NODE Vol 01, free digital release and physical preorder, n-o-d-e.net/nodevol01.html

This first volume is 150 pages long, and, it's packed with features on P2P projects, such as Dat, Beaker, Ricochet IM, Aether. There are tutorials showing projects like the new NODE Mini Server, 3D print long range wifi antennas, how to chat via packet radio, and how to Libreboot the Thinkpad X200. There's also a handy open source directory at the back, and more!

yeah this rss shit has been problematic enough that imma pay feedbin. gotta know when money is the answer i guess.

In less than a century we've gone from short-sighted and self destructive greed to full on death cult.

Never go full death cult.

Any recommendations for a local bookmark server/system that isn't awful to set up?

It's only for personal use. "Cloud" is unnecessary. If it's web-based, something that goes in cgi-bin would be sufficient. Even a decent Firefox plugin is fine.

lmao android adding features ive been using for years through customisation.
gesture control, split screen and floating notifications? lol thats v 2013. my first smart phone did those things.
amoled black for everything? you bet i been doing that since 2016
finger print gesture navigation? now we're feeling modern.

i wonder if android will ever get to the point where i wont feel the need to customise it. hopefully by then ill be running actual linux on a mobile so i wont be interested in whatever android is doing.

imagine caring what opinion journalists think

my grasp of reality is questionable at best.

There's a different between trusting someone because they're an authority and trusting them because they have experience.

Reputation is the intersection of the two. You make yourself known as someone who knows things and can help.

god i really need a public wallabag instance so i stop reading hn at work, it's so boring.

wondering if im betyer off paying for digital infrastructure rather than self hosting. in particular thinking about wallabag, pinboard and feedbin.

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