mad props @c3voc, every year, without fail, practically zero hitches and a massive amount of video getting taken care of.

Been thinking a lot about how to produce physical things without destroying the environment.

But maybe "production" is just plain infeasible? Like, maybe the pattern of "let's make TONS of copies of this object for lots of people" is just not a generally feasible pattern.

Perhaps the small-scale building of things is the only real way to go: analyze your local needs, then design and build a thing that meets your needs for your specific circumstances.

Between the upper boundary set by the carrying capacity of the planet, and a lower boundary set by decent levels of wellbeing for all lies a band of sustainable energy use, situated somewhere between energy poverty and energy decadence. [...] However, there is no guarantee that the maximum levels are in fact higher than the minimum levels.

Just learned that John Coltrane rented a harp to work out a composition he was working on. Alice experimented with it for the first time. He heard the sounds she produced and purchased a harp for her that same day. By the time it arrived he passed having never her heard play it.

What should I read on the concept of "circular economy"? It's a potentially useful framework to reduce material throughput, energy consumption; reuse byproducts as feedstock. OTOH, it's often pure corporate PR, eg "we have found a new market for our toxic waste." Suggestions?

@Shitlord FWIW they might be somewhere, I noticed the graphical layout was reversed for RTL-language ads, banners and such. Keyboard designs probably suffer from being constrained by like, the cost of modifying a keyboard-making machine.

This is really cool, I dig how playing with cursor movements like that actually elicits a sort of a physical reaction

@brianna Elaborate? Genuinely interested, of all the criticisms of 5G, this is one that I haven't heard yet

This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.

extremely disliking the fact that people selling extremely woo bullshit for hundreds or thousands of dollars are making it hard for me to search for glass or crystal orbs for me to buy just to make my place look rad, instead of chasing away negative 5G demons and balancing my vitals or whatever else these motherfuckers are trying to sell

halfway through making this post, it turned from "I'll dunk on this expensive piece of 'energy' nonsense" to an absolute existential crisis about how I will never write a joke as funny as the world itself. I urge you to read the image descriptions fully for this reason. I am fucking done. defeated. obliterated.

@cypnk No way! I'll be following for sure.

I've seriously wanted to hack something like that together too, but mostly I couldn't find a reasonable keyboard to use and designing one from scratch felt a bit too bike-sheddy.
(Maybe it wasn't though?)

A hackable platform sounds really exciting :)
