I was introduced to in-practice #anarchy through Noisebridge. Anyone else appreciate Anarchist ideologies?
anyone looking at the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold? I'm not sure how practical it would be for serious technical work, and I'm dubious on running Fedora on it, but it's the kind of technical step forward that I love to see in hardware. It's basically a folding screen. The one personal device that *should* be fully capable of doing everything a computer should do.
really interesting look at the societal effects of the bubonic plague by Planet Money. they say income #inequality rarely or never saw a more stark improvement! https://www.npr.org/2020/09/16/913735599/after-the-plague
someday historians will tell our children how bad we had it in our time that we had to poison ourselves every day with mild neurotoxins just to stimulate ourselves to push through another 8-12 hours of societal demands. #thecultofproductivity
turns out there's a scheme for spacial subdivision in the alternated cubic honeycomb. tetrahedra subdivide into four tetrahedra and an octahedron; octahedra subdivide into six octahedra and eight tetrahedra. At any level of subdivision, all faces are exactly the same size equilateral triangles. #gamedev
I think this is what matters for a relatively organic voxel system (relative to cube voxels).
I'm listening to "Overwhelmed" https://libro.fm/audiobooks/9781491530559?bookstore=imaginarybookshop
I'd love to hear someone talk about the potentiality of moving beyond apps. No web apps. No phone apps. If the identity and database are managed at the edges: locally, by individuals; it becomes possible. And control over large networks would become much more difficult to acquire. #dweb
"[we have to] learn to behave in ways that are pragmatic. We have to start thinking of humans as being these special, magical entities—we have to mystify ourselves because it’s the only way to look after ourselves given how good we’re getting at technology." –Jaron Lanier on Humanism
Anybody watched and/or discussing The Social Dilemma? (Documentary on Netflix about social media). Seems like prob just a synopsis of what everyone knows, but I'm just 15% in and I feel like I have to watch it because certain people are hosting events specifically for discussing #thesocialdilemma
I have been considering writing an app with the purpose of connecting the fediverse based on dimensional proximity. Similar hashtags, near geo tags, same events mentioned, etc. (I'm working on a list of dimensions.) I want to minimize list management, and develop an experience of physical proximity.
