Finally finished a I've been working on about how humanity is basically a big and we shouldn't let people who has been dead for 300 years convince us that we're the sole reason for our thoughts ๐ŸŒฟ

So if you like and dunking on Descartes it might be up your alley

Attempting to get some of my thoughts on learning out on video as a means of getting into the pace of video essay writing ๐Ÿ“š

This requires so much work to be any good but we're working on it, one step at a time ๐ŸŒฑ

web surfing has become all but impossible. nothing links anymore, it's all narcissistic inside linking if anything. i used to surf links across the network, stumbling from one thing to the next, surprises and missteps. now it's all search hubs and feeds rather than networks.

what we use now via the http protocol isn't really the web anymore. there's no web here. it's all silos, standing alone and trying desperately to keep me from leaving. no longer a digital ocean, now small tide pools with no path between, left in the receding wake of the surf.

@forestjohnson greenhouse-alpha.server.garden seems to be down? Since my server is a bit broken at the moment I can't verify the service integrity but the frontend seems to be failing at the very least

Thought you'd want to know that!

Marcus Mengs posted HTTP dumps from #Instagram mobile app that collects and sends to Meta the following details:

SSID and BSSID of all local WiFi networks, including yours
BLE beacons
Detailed GPS (!) location

So my server decided that Friday afternoon was as good a time as any to stop booting ๐Ÿ˜… from looking around it appears to be an issue of the kernel getting stuck when trying to boot, uefi and grub is seemingly working but it just dies after 'loading ramdisk' stage. Notices first that ssh goes from timeout to refused so somethings alive in there but my this stuff is not my forte so I might just to to the movies instead ๐Ÿ˜‚

"oh wow this could save me 2 minutes every other month!"

@dachary Is there a quick summary of how ForgeFriends work that I'm missing?

I can order a burger for delivery within half an hour but I canโ€™t see a doctor.

Take a fucking bow, capitalism.

This came out the other day: components.one/posts/the-new-p

"This report argues that consumer technology reviewers have failed their basic nominal purpose of critiquing tools. Instead, inspired by values introduced by Apple in the late 1990s, the tech review industry prioritizes aesthetic lust as the primary critical factor for evaluating objects. The reification of these values in their scoring system is transmitted to consumers and manufacturers alike. Like other prurient things, the objects designed within this paradigm are optimized not for usefulness but for photogenic and telegenic properties, a framework that finds its fullest realization in YouTube reviews and unboxing videos. There, even the intimation of critical rigor within tech reviewing vanishes, the smartphone becomes the center of gravity, and manufacturers are even further incentivized to design products for end consumers who are less users than viewers."

capitalism: look, i invented a new thing

people: is it just more CO2 emissions?

capitalism: yea it's just more CO2 emissions

In Sweden we have this thing called "Home and Consumer Knowledge", which I had in middle school. We basically got taught how to do dishes and laundry, which you know, fair.

We also had basic computer knowledge as a class, because most people maybe didn't have the computer experience that was important for future careers, also, fair.

These two classes ought to be the same class. Learning how to setup a router is part of running a household.

I will die on this hill.

Giving kids Chromebooks in schools is like serving them candy for lunch. Itโ€™s something youโ€™d do if you were either clueless or hated their guts.

What Iโ€™m trying to say is stop normalising surveillance in schools, you absolute muppets.

If I want a 10 minute read on the reasons why it might be bad that google is on the inside of every android phone, do you have a go-to resource that you might be willing to share?
