What measures a career
Dreamt I had to sell the usefulness of handfuls of mostly finished projects not far removed from actual unfinished projects I worked on over the years. Most of which the usefulness was only to a situation at the time. Most of which are obsolete now or likely never finished.
On the flip side I ethically regret some of the code I wrote that I'm sure is probably still in use.
I've had a weird software graveyard of a career so far.
@aparrish The related idea that a modern corporation must always seek growth at all costs.
So do cancer cells.
I'm calling a social media strike for July 4-5: https://larrysanger.org/2019/06/social-media-strike/
I know many here have already abandoned the likes of Facebook and Twitter. But if you're still there...announce that you're on strike (repeatedly?) on those days, in protest of these companies' abusive policies, and if you like, share this Declaration of Digital Independence: https://larrysanger.org/2019/06/declaration-of-digital-independence/

Get your friends off centralised social media and inform them about the alternatives like Mastodon, Matrix and other federated or distributed networks
A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.
Game/software developer with a special interest in functional programming, science, non-contemporary fiction and the ethics of technology.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either! We adhere to an adapted version of the TootCat Code of Conduct and have documented a list of blocked instances. Ash is the admin and is supported by Fuzzface, Brian!, and Daniel Glus as moderators. Hosting costs are largely covered by our generous supporters on Patreon – thanks for all the help!
