Every day I think about one or more of these three ways to improve life and society:
◦ High level programming that feels like just using a computer (and solves some UX issues hurting everyone),
◦ Artistic and practical applications of artificial life, and
◦ Three dimensional informatics.

I cut out 95% of BaseParadigm to make Zomu, a Kotlin library for compact binary content identifiers.
The name is an acronym for the main bit of metadata on it: Zero One Many or Unknown. Most content IDs just support addressing one chunk. One primary advantage of Zomu is support for sets, literals, and nulls!
I'm hoping this could advance high-level scripting over decentralized linked data sets.

Is there a report or guide or anything looking at where TLD registration money goes? Are there some TLDs that are in any way more ethical than others? (profits go to charity, b-corp, supports FOSS, or anything like that.)

Thanks mastodon for telling me is on. Netherlands is sounding pretty good right now. 😃

Using any program is a slow conversation with the developer, in which the developer talks all the time and can barely hear you.

If you're doing any kind of business that would benefit from these lines of thinking, hire me to do what I cannot stop myself from obsessively pursuing, please. Or co-found something with me. I'm just not a business person because my brain is too full of and .

I want a cell phone that is an orb. Just a sphere. No buttons, no holes. 3D screen so I can look into it.

Our lives revolve around sleep. You spend half your life sleeping, want a nice house for a place to sleep, nice pj's, and literally will go insane if you do not sleep, but people who need more sleep or enjoy sleep are considered lazy.

Anyone working on, or just enjoying, recent artificial life simulations?

Why do I feel like I'm the only person who would say to a recruiter at Facebook that I do not want to work for a company that consistently makes immoral business decisions?
I do get why engineers might be tempted to work there. They've made great contributions to open source, for one. But I just can't understand how they attracted that talent. I have been disgusted with Facebook for a solid 15 years.
Also, how many times do I have to tell them?

Thanks you for your service, my friendly neighborhood arachnid.

Nagging is like elephant repellent. You only think it works because you keep doing it. People never learn to remember without being given the chance.

i am so in awe of everybody who keeps maintaining the FLOSS code I rely on every day. Sometimes I just read their changelogs and marvel

Actually there is. Never know this or used it :)

Anyone here trying Lunchclub? It's for networking... such an awkward practice. Backward, I should say. I feel like I'm the only one who first wants to connect, and second, maybe even not until potentially much later, consider how we can help each other.
