This livestream of the construction site for the SpaceX Starship is amazing for what it is (massive fan interest), and what it isnt (a restricted cleanroom silo).

I find this video encouraging for a open-source clone of the Anki Vector with an esp32.

Storj, while open source, has a top-down enterprise-feel in how it does things. Sia is extraordinary in its free market approach, though rebuilding the blockchain seems possibly unnecessary. siastats.info/storage_pricing

the problem with filtering mastodon public feeds by tag is peole are terrible at tagging content in any kind of standardized way. I expect that will get better as tags become more important, which will come when databases of mastodon content by tag becomes more popular.

In 1969, Apollo 11 was 9 hours into its mission and about 6 hours into its 3 day drift through space to be caught by the moon's gravity at the end of the journey. The ship had a sextant on board with this chart of 30 pre-designated stars to use as a guidance check.

ps. Mastodon's "Delete and Re-Draft" is the best.

Apple AirPods are a VR Headet for the ears.

Its nice to see another location based AR-ish game, even if it is from Niantic and plays like a slot machine. The dream of such games was described in 2010 as Shadow Cities and we're still waiting for it, imho.

Day 1 of the 3 day drift-phase to the moon, Apollo11 astronauts continualy use the "Space Sextant" to double-check the course correctness. A pre-defined set of reference stars were used.
