Work on #glimpse 0.1.4 will take another week or two before it enters beta. That is because we are troubleshooting Windows & Snapcraft builds, and adding a few extra features.

advice is a funny thing, everyone wants to give it.

if you want to trace a path to greatness you start with defeat, lose, rejection. if you want to be endlessly motivated, failure is key.

Not giving a fuck takes practice. tuning out the noise. going with your instincts. staying committed to what you believe. that shit doesn't come easy. you feel like taking hits, but if you stay on your feet no one will fuck with you.

For all of you that wanted to build your own computer truly from scratch. Here is CollapseOS on Z80 to help you with that.

IPFS: Let's build a high-performance, non-censurable web, and let's add a cash incentive on the side for hosting content. Comes from Silicon Valley-adjacent VC-funded hackers.

DAT: Let's build something that is usable for your average scientist, specifically for sharing scientific datasets, so that that information can be accessible without going through scientific journals or someone's private stash. Comes from EU-grant-funded Danish hackers. Happens to be usable for a distributed web as well.

Done, I got my ticket! 🚀 Cya all in Leipzig!
