A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

Unbearable apartment temperature requires radical actions.

Hammock and Borjomi to rescue. Could live here the rest of the summer.

Refreshing news in the morning:

MIT Predicted in 1972 That Society Will Collapse This Century. New Research Shows We’re on Schedule.

You're welcome.

I came home from the vacation trip and having some alone time since ages.

LinkedIn is actually, along with Mastodon, one of the best social networks out there. Sure, sometimes my feed is puffing of vain celebrations, recruitment ads and people patting each other on the back, but that is easily fixed by being strict about who you follow. The rest of the content is golden.

I've also yet to see any negativity-filled bullshit or hate speech on that platform – which doesn't mean there wouldn't be any of that, but at least it's not pushed to my feed constantly.

A convenient reminder that my technical musings in a semi-long format are also in LinkedIn, should you use that. Please, consider just following me there, but if you suspect we *know* each other through some strange occurrence I'm happy to connect too.
