I DID A THING! IT"S HAPPENINGGG!!!!!
I think buildah is my favorite container tool
With docker/podman, if you want to do anything more interesting than "run a command in a container", your options are limited. (Yeah, you can run a secondary command in a container, but only if the first command is still going.)
Buildah lets you create a container and do many things with it: Manipulate the filesystem, run any number of commands, set process environment options, and more.
This is super powerful if you're doing anything besides using a container to run a service.
Bad sci-fi idea of the day: So there's a superintelligent AI, and then robots start taking over the world. Everyone blames the AI, but the robots were actually just controlled by human opportunists. Later, the AI offers to save the world by hacking the robots – which it does by ignoring the robots and using phishing to find the human controllers and steal their credentials, because the humans were the least secure part of the system.
So we can't get wealthier, we can only control distribution of the limited wealth.
Of course, this doesn't include imaginary goods (data), which... I'm not sure how to process in a macroeconomic sense. I'm not even certain they have real value??
Is economic mobility actually a capitalist myth?
So, if we discuss wealth as the conceptual value of money (like, how much stuff can you buy with a pile of money).
We live on a finite planet with finite resources and therefore finite concrete goods. Therefore, the total wealth of the entire planet is kinda constant.
Which makes wealth a zero-sum game.
Which means that a society cannot have net upward mobility. Everyone who goes up, someone else must come down.
Tech transfemme. Code sorceress and ops witch. Also, shameless selfies.
