libra offering the "we will do whatever it takes, cooperate with whoever you want to get the yoke of control we want" is the most sinister vicious cold blooded hardline possible stance one can take.
it should be conservatives appalled by this servile capitulation & knavery to the State but i think liberals have evolved a far far more reasonable operating view of reality, a far more nuanced & realistic view of power, & who far far better get how twisted this is.
i am so mad that #discord & #slack both culture jam & rip off from my religion. they should be banned as religiously offensive. #dischordianists will not quietly sit by while you turn our good names, while you turn the tenements of our religion, into a sick proprietary corporately owned joke. we will bring your pathetic lowly ordered ways under the all encompassing might of our sacred #chao.
lord knows what year of setting up kubernetes at home i'm in. last i left off, i was setting up cfssl, which honestly, after that goes, is 80% of the getting it up & going war.
this is super procrastinaty- in a creative procrastination way- because i have other things to wrap up & this is a known timesink hazard, but still i want to! last progress.. oh gracious. january 2018! it's been a while.
i started this december 2014. ~6 months pre 1.0! at least, that's the earliest trace i can find.
i'm glad someone is putting a flag down, trying to make a rallying point for Generative Art & #ProcGen... yet i don't think this article speaks enough to the work itself.
this is moral work, virtuous work, creating space from nothing. it's anti-colonial anti-imperial because it can expand & expand, & it's easy to set it free so others might expand their mind-lands too.
come enrich the virtual! be a person who expands the universe, all without having to claim atoms & shuffle them.
tesla trying to patent hub & spoke computer network architecture in this thread, US20190217794:
"In this new wiring architecture, subsystems are packaged and defined in one or multiple assemblies in certain embodiments. For example, a door assembly might contain one controller (or hub) that controls multiple devices, such as locking components, lighting components, audio components, etc."
some potentially innovative other claims but 👿 as usual so much basic work headed for lock down
.mil which is scary but i can't help but love & be excited for the full-scale xv-24a "Lightning Strike" vtol drone.
only other aircraft design i've seen about that calls to me is NASA's similar-ish vtol gl-10 greased lightning, also in scaled demonstrator stages 2-3 years back:
seems like a really good OS model & security aparatus. just needs to move from the old world of single systems, out, into the world wide web.
maybe just me, but i think a huge amount of these abstractions are implementable as is, with a little creativity & elbow grease,
I am a huge chromecast user. What makes me really really sad is that I used to audioscrobble all.my listening, & I still do. But chromecast devices frequently async from the phone I cast to them with. So for the last couple years I think no more than 50% of what Iisten to gets recorded.
Detestable. Closed sad systems. Secure & impotent. Incapable. Such a sad serious step backwards. I dont get why it has to be so.
i don't think the 10x programmer is necessarily the flame out, anti-team lone-wolf danger zone many ascribe to them. i think it can be real.
but almost never except in the most craven sad cases is it about working to your ends, to doing the task at hand.
there are manifolds of usefulness that can be opened, unlocked, by those that see, further wider than the rest. that know what to shoot for in ways few else can comprehend.
and almost all companies are too limited to chase the rainbow.
a 10x programmer isn't your 10x programmer.
they are their own whirlwind of motivation & drive.
even the rare few companies that have ends ambitious enough to soak this vastness,
rarely have means to adapt themselves, to constantly let the business be remolded,
by the creativity & spirit of their blessed talent.
i'm not inherently opposed to the idea of a 10x programmer.
but i think very very very few are out there with the just righteous & open ended ambition necessary to set a programmer loose on a 10x plan.
i think very very few companies have the means to handle giving employees so much autonomy mastery & purpose.
in large part because i think their ambitions are small & sad.
I want us to try post virtual memory computing. It's easy & convenient making compilers that build programs that assume they have their own address space but I question whether that hardware really helps or hurts & I'm not sure we can't do a solid job using merely memory protection & relocateable code program architectures & I think it could aid some great & especially multi tenant workloads.
Early cybernetic lifeform, going beyond re-inventing to make virtualforms we can endlessly settle into.
