I'm interested in and will sometimes post about:

love it when companies leave the barn door open and then claim they were hacked when someone just walks into their systems

get it together, y'all

I think Malcolm Gladwell might've been the art model for Stan Kelly's sicko.

humans get lost in my never ending crypts all the time and they'd get out if they'd stop running away or killing my undead minions that are just trying to guide them

We're harvesting around 10-15 lbs of produce every other day at the moment. Growing enough to feed ourselves, store for winter, and share with others. We're doing it all organically on about 1772 ft² (0.04 acre) in an urban area. We're not just feeding humans, but also a large population of insects and wildlife that have moved in as well. I share all of this because I want others to know how very possible it is to cultivate abundance for yourself and everything around you. 💚 🌿

There are a lot of "programming is like..." metaphors that focus on industry. Programming is like a construction project. Programming is like a manufacturing floor.

Those work, as far as they go, when you're trying to have a mental model for how programming produces products in organizations. But it doesn't really capture, in my mind, what programming is like for the individual. And it also kind of excludes a huge number of hobbyist and amateur1 programmers.

Programming is an art and a craft. It's honestly a lot like sewing. Yes, it's often cheaper in the modern world to buy pre-made things -- but it's a valuable skill for everyone to have at some level, even if that level is "I can replace a button". People learn to sew because they want to repair something they love, or made modifications (bam now my skirt has pockets!), or because they find joy in making things, or because they want to make things that don't exist "off the shelf", or...

A Norwegian friend on Facebook found this dated May 27 this year.

"Three Large American Multinationals Bought 17 Million Hectares of Ukrainian Agricultural Land"

That's almost 1/3 of Ukraine's territory.

Believe it ir not, google search DOES NOT turn up the article, just bloggings about it.🤣

"For comparison, there are 16.7 million hectares of agricultural land in the whole of Italy. So it turns out that three American companies have bought more useful agricultural land in Ukraine than there is in all of Italy."

"The entire area of Ukraine is 600,000 square kilometers, 170,000 square kilometers have been bought up."

"What are these companies? Cargill, Dupont and Monsanto, the latter is last officially German-Australian, but with American capital.

Their main shareholders are American Vanguard, BlackRock and Blackstone.

BlackRock is a fund that manages $10 trillion in assets, Vanguard manages $6 trillion, and Blackstone manages $881 billion."

Would it be okay if you trained the github copilot model on leaked windows sourcecode and then start contributing to wine?

more experiments with colours from 2021, it is still digital at this point and i just couldn't go away from monochrome, otherwise it just didn't go together, i couldn't pick colours anymore 😭

I'm quite happy with this one though!

Idea: A Cradle of Filth covers band but in a 90s boyband style. I just want to hear *NSYNC singing pervy pseudo-Victorian macabre poetry with a happy lil dance routine and peppy backing track ok!!
