A mostly-open laptop project I hadn't heard of: https://mntre.com/media/news_md/2019-05-20-reintroducing-reform.html
I'm pruning my follow list because though you're all great I've been too unfocused. Going to visit NYC next month -- hit me up if you can.
Burglarized today. Burglars were caught and it looks like I only lost a stack of change.
@kragen I'm setting up bubbleos on Debian to try out uncorp, and the INSTALL instructions fell a little short:
2. needed libjpeg
3. didn't mention needing node
(This is where I am now, node not yet installed just because of a little ugh field around node)
I just posted some ideas for implementation on https://gist.github.com/kragen/6bee5b4529cbde133050e9dc2e0b4b7e, including thoughts on programmable self-reproducing robots, quasimodal multitouch interfaces, cheap cooling vests, the Magic Kazoo, the Egg of the Phoenix, Loyal Objects, graded-index optical systems, Speedy Delivery, autism-assistive hearing aids, Leconscrip, a non-Turing-complete scriptable Wercam GUI, PEG-based DOMification, and a planispheric conformal map app for your phone.
I just set up https://www.scuttlebutt.nz/ to try another decentralized social networking thingy. Right now you can find me as abecedarius on "qypea1.dyndns.info, run by DavidW" listed at https://github.com/ssbc/scuttlebot/wiki/Pub-Servers -- longer term, we'll see.
@kragen btw did you know Feynman gave a followup talk to "Plenty of room at the bottom" also in the 80s? I sure didn't. https://people.eecs.berkeley.edu/~pister/290G/Papers/Feynman83.pdf
This is a test of a new toot not mentioning anyone -- let's see if it's visible to him.
just reminded of my old abecedarius with the line "J is for Java left under the Sun."
funny how a changing world recontextualizes your art
otoh a spring morning here in pasadena can offer one of the simulators' more obvious japes:
the sky a saturated blue grading down to mountains just out of reach but flat, faded in haze
behind you, a campus of simulated scientists studying nature
mostly the sky looks flat
tonight a crescent moon rode near enough to venus and the ghost of the sunset to evoke the 3-d arrangement, their plane at a slant to my own vector
you feel just a little like falling off this ball and joining those
bedbug therapy fosters zealous housekeeping habits
ask your doctor if it's right for you
complex analysis was a straussian misdirection from the simple truth: every real function is analytic
actually political parties should not be suppressed
their presence is a sensitive signal of a dysfunctional culture of governance
ok so what if i use this account for my edgy thought of the day
we're doing subtraction backwards
this'll help me stay off twitter, for sure?
