dismantle the idea that programming is for smart people™️ and that they deserve more money than others. tear down their haughty towers until silicon valley is a wasteland of shattered ivory

something I think about often is the time I saw an artist on twitter learning programming and they were like “considering how much more programmers are paid, this is a lot simpler than I thought it would be” and I was like “yuuuup”

there should be a site where you can order arbitrary pigtails. like an online design tool where you can select a connector for each end, a cable type and length, and even adjust pin connection arrangements (e.g. for crossovers or horrible cursed nonsense)

Q: How the heck are YOU a 'monster'?

A: I have blue fur and I like to sing. Haven't you ever seen Sesame Street?
A': I'm an omen sent to announce the fall of Rome. Yes, I got delayed. When you abruptly change religion providers, you get interruptions in service, CONSTANTINE.
A'': Dictionary says a monster is an animal of unnatural size, shape, or quality. And I'm always a fox of unusual size, whether unusually big or small.
A'''': Monster is a creature combining human and animal features. So all anthros are monsters!

watching a documentary on the idea of "degenerate art" and all that from nazi germany in class. sure feels familiar! probably just deja vu, there's no way we could have that happen here. oh now they're marching by night with torches. interesting!

Ok, is there like a chrome extension or something that makes it when I click on a fedi link it wires up buttons accordingly?

A brief history of the web:

1994: like .plan files, but with pictures

1999: an emerging marketplace

2004: socialization! Commerce! Industry! Collaboration!

2009: democratization of content production and distribution!

2014: everything is now about immediacy of updates and a firehose of information

2019: like .plan files, but with pictures

Wow, this is moving quick.

Decided to do some bizdev for this wheels-as-a-service thing, and it feels like things are moving fast? Of course, I have no idea how close I am to cash-in-hand.
