I have difficulty inferring people's boundaries from context or social cues. I expect to always have problems with this, even if I get better at mitigation.

If this means we can't be friends, no hard feelings.

But if you are forward about your boundaries, I'll appreciate that.

I am still learning when and how to ask about boundaries in a way that isn't presumptuous. I often get it wrong when I'm distracted by interesting conversation.

If anyone has some programming contract work they need done, please let me know. I have experience with Rust, Python, C, Go, Java, and JavaScript, and I primarily do frontend work. I can create designs if needed.

Ghibli? Actually, the singular is: Ghiblus

Made another logo for practice, I like it honestly. This one is a Panda Express ripoff with vegan flavoring.

For those of you who play Blizzard games.

The employees have asked you not play them at all tomorrow as a message to the company.

Digital Strike and all that.

i think that fakeness and realness aren't opposites, but are two dimensions of the same thing that can vary independently. for example, some things can be extremely fake and extremely real at the same time, like money

Something I think a lot about: in aviation, if you're landing through fog (or whatever), the standard practice is to pick ahead of time a hard limit for the altitude at which you'll do a go-around. If you don't see the runway by the time that altitude is reached, you abort the landing attempt -- no questions.

Because otherwise folks tend to keep going "I'll just give it another few seconds..." until they're way too low for safety.

This type of protocol is very, very generalizable to everyday life, and can make decision-making a lot easier.

# Software From Another World

> We undermine not only unions, but every aspect of the worker's life: AirBnB spikes rents, Uber disenfranchises drivers, a thousand streaming services reinvent cable, Amazon fucks everybody, and so on. Despite any niche expertise, these are companies made possible by software, by the lending of software labor to capitalist ends. We can choose to deny them, if we stand together.
