I’m not even that old yet, and think I’ve seen people owned by every scam in the book, it’s brutal. “The” Yellow Kid would be proud of this money/fame/status “scarcity games” obsessed generation.

Text (book or screen) has an allure that allows otherwise intelligent people to throw away their deductive and dialectical skills. Faulty information online drives decision making for many influencers/politicians. And so the question remains; who influences the influencers?

FTX, a cryptocurrency company headquartered in my country (The Bahamas) has fallen. This was the obvious outcome… but convincing people beforehand was an impossibility. Authority and influence always beat reason and sanity.

Sometimes the source code is the ultimate documentation. If you’re creating color schemes based on chroma, nothing beats types.go for finding out what each token means.

and are a cozy combination. Out of annoyance with my flaky Internet connection I’ve paginated the rss and json feeds. Know what? After exploring various feed formats, the underlying problem seems to be incentives in feed generation tooling correctness across language ecosystems and not formats? Invalid atom, rss, and feeds are all over the net.

I feel sorta conflicted about my posted notes on nixops because shortly after that I discovered nixos-rebuild had remote deploys. Now nixos-rebuild itself is just a bash script and taking a peek inside is well, you know.. enlightening. There’s even a NixOS deployment tool written in just nix. I use nixos-rebuild…

shell
nixos-rebuild switch \
  --target-host "nix@remote.host" \
  --build-host "localhost" \
  --no-build-nix
Build locally, deploy remotely
#nixos

, most of the fastest web I’ve seen were using nuxt.js. Performant react web applications are rare… But honestly, the usability of the web overall is in the gutter. I’ve spent these last few days watching people frustrate themselves over broken web application forms (for banks especially).

The nix packages collection has a neat library repository. A small nudge can make it completely standalone. Basically it allows experimenting quickly with configuration patterns for custom stuff without an expensive evaluation.

Linux phones with minimum software feature parity can’t come fast enough. I’d get rid of all my Android devices instantly. My only saving grace is that I have some technical knowledge on updating/compiling Android , but it’s a pain because the Android ecosystem is messy. postmarketOS looks promising.

It’s mesmerizing how an appeal to human nature can also be an appeal to contradiction itself. Humans operate in perpetual extremes and contradictions — if everyone wants decentralization today, they’ll eventually want centralization tomorrow, and vice versa. Philosophically, it’s an airtight appeal because the contradiction can be anything time/history allows.
