Being a programmer is turning me into an anarchist: I always seem to want to eliminate state.

You better not fuck with me or I will curse you to have "Tarantella Napoletana" stuck in your head for forty days and forty nights

The only reliable way to get a song unstuck from your head is to replace it with a different one.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. It's the Dæmon War and it's extremely cool, we get to use superpowers and we all have alter-egos.

@hansbauer @retrohacker legislators were able to create food safety standards that make getting poisoned by store-bought food impossibly unlikely. They were able to create regulations around medicines that make it highly unlikely for people to get poisoned by actual, you know, poisons (every medicine is poison in the right amount).

We can, and should, expect legislators to step in and regulate the IT industry.

Market will not solve it.
