I'm looking for employment where, every day as I go into work, I know my kids, when they are adults, will be aware of the benefit to them of my work. I am looking for a company working toward enduring impact that should still be clear 10 and 20 years from now.

How do I tell the old ladies and gay men in NYC that their fashion concepts don't match my life at all?

From confusion comes self. With perfect knowledge, one could live entirely in objectivity. But since perception requires interpretation, and interpretation requires a model, and because the model is always imperfect, we know we must exist. We are so different than the environment.

All the stuff around you was once money. That money was once time (maybe yours). Is it worth it? It's mostly junk, right? Time comes first. Watch how you spend it or it might turn into junk.

Saw the first episode of the new Cowboy Bebop. Wow what a throwback. The noir. The jazz. The cyberpunk. The cowboy antics and martial arts action. The character chemistry. And it's still an over-the-top comedic comic, even as live action (in a good way). I love it, but still, the original has pretty big shoes to fill doesn't it.

WRT Tesla server outage:
“I'm stuck an hour away from home because I normally use my phone to start [my] car,” one [Tesla] owner tweeted.
… I feel a little vicarious shame for my software engineer peers, that we didn't make it clear to you that phones, and especially apps on phones, are fundamentally unreliable by design, and that making them reliable has been a long-fought losing battle, only pursued for reasons that, frankly, conflict with your need for security and control over your life.

: Local Creative: connect with local artists, makers, and crafters to commission work or buy unique works.
Like Etsy but with ▫️general avoidance of shipping (walk over and get it, if possible) ▫️focus on commission conversation ▫️expectation of surprise & unique artist style ▫️primarily things fabricated upon request and personal connection.

Any Wampanoag tribe members active in the fediverse? What's your voice this month?

Are there low tech electric vehicles on the market? Wouldn't it be possible to make one without any computer chips?

Grasshopper visited my porch. I think I may never have seen one before. Weren't these once common? Why did they write all the childrens' stories about them?

TFW you get a day away from the insanity and realize the degree of insanity and try to change it and oh shit.

When I "google" something, I often have to dig a bit for the answer. My partner gets her answer as a top result. She says I think too much like a librarian. Just remember us librarians were making search engines before it was big tech.
