A real exchange on hacker news 

Article: "These startup bois worked 18 hours days for 1 year to launch their product!"

> Hey maybe working that hard is bad actually.
>> Yeah but at least they owned the company! They weren't forced to do that to enrich their boss!
>> If everybody thought working to exhaustion was bad society would collapse
>> the future employees of those bois should be grateful for all that hard work

Today's special interest is open source housing. I'm aware of products like Lincoln Block and Ubuild, but they're both proprietary. anybody know of similar open source projects?

can't believe the project run by libertarians is pivoting to profiting from the free labour of volunteers :/

This is a quote from Walkaway by Cory Doctorow. So far, an absolutely wonderful book.

The stories you tell come true. If you believe everyone is untrustworthy, you'll build that into your systems so that even the best people have to act like the worst people to get anything done. If you assume people are okay, you live a much happier life.

Mmmmm I feel immensely unavoidably fucked, and also like I'm more competent than ever at the same time. I will resolve this contradiction by laying down

You cannot demand a revolution, more so than you can demand a plant to grow.

You must give the Plant water, sunlight, fertile soil. It has to be carefully cared for, nourished and loved.

Failure to do so, it will wilt and die...

Carefully take care of, and have patience for the Revolution. And it will bloom a beautiful Rose.

You know those toy languages people build to trend on HN?

My contribution: LangLang, a language for quickly prototyping other languages.

I picked up an old kindle my in-laws never use! I'm going to see if I can get calibre working nicely with mastodon rss. I'd love to try a slower social media experience.

the way that sandpaper grits are ranked implies that "1 grit" would just be hitting something with a rock

I still keep a casual watch on the stuff that crypto does because I feel like nobody takes decentralized tech as seriously as that bunch does.

It's because they have a huge pile of inflation bucks they need to spend before the next crash, but still interesting.
