Debating which note-taking app to use is a tragedy when it’s still trapped inside a tiny glass box that doesn’t take embodied cognition seriously.
I want a physical, tactile computer integrated into the room, not a 1% improvement on text screens
It's quite striking to read what people were saying about the internet in the early 90s.
Esther Dyson: "The fundamental thing (the Net does) is to overcome the advantages of economies of scale…so the big guys don't rule."
I wrote about how software can expand (but often forecloses) one's imagination of what's possible to create with media!
"i don't use Chrome because i have the ideological belief that there should be more than one browser engine, so i'm going to keep using Firefox until it switches to Chromium, and then i guess i'll use Chrome"
This is incredible
"The conversation with Marshall McLuhan got me thinking [that] the successful philosophers were also advertisers who could sell their new models to large numbers of others, thus converting thought to action, mind to matter."

“Social media wasn’t web 2.0, it’s what killed Web 2.0!”
I enjoyed this article on what web 2.0 actually was, and I’m tickled that I only saw it because @BenCollver posted it to comp.misc.
still, tho! i am trying to figure out how to ontologically describe this something that isn't "blogging".
Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!
There aren't many published copies of annotated books out there, but you can get a limited edition replica of Francis Ford Coppola's prompt book The Godfather Notebook for the movie's 50th anniversary. It includes Coppola's handwritten annotations on Mario Puzo's novel.
Open Infrastructure Map is absolutely fascinating. Check out all the power stations, turbines, electricity lines, gas, oil, water pipelines, etc near you.
Built on top of Open Street Map data (what an amazing project OSM is).
In case you didn't know: prompting is just one step away from the devil's work. But I do find the "bringing to light" angle very charming. Lucinate? Lucination?
In the depth of depression, at the age of 32, Buckminster Fuller had an epiphany:
"From now on you need never await temporal attestation to your thought. You think the truth. You do not have the right to eliminate yourself. You do not belong to you. You belong to the Universe."
I have to try to divine:
* Which devices are well supported by LineageOS
* Which devices will continue to be well supported by LineageOS
* Which devices have strong enough specs that they will perform well as software inevitably gets more bloated over the years I will own the phone
* Which devices are actually attainable locally at reasonable cost
I'm in hell.
