MSP collecting data towards education ( and working towards solutions at hood canal.

Great time. LLTK & Jacques White

Solutions in plan and flight:
Reintroducing more diversity to hatchery programs, spreading release, etc, to keep harbor seals from having a feast.
Rebuilding forage fish habitats and populations (herring etc)
Redesign lock filling chambers to not be a "salmon blender" at cedar river, rebuild fish passages and ladders. Restoring shore lines. Hood Canal floating bridge is A Problem.
Marine Survival Project with Paul Allen's philanthropy org Vulcan.

- increased seal predation. LLTK partners tagging fish with RFID and tie that to seals with sensor "beanies" to track seal

Harbor seals eating nearly 8x as many chinook in Strait of Georgia as in 1970! Double resident killer whales and 6x fishing rates!
Harbor seals are consuming smaller fish, looking at biomass numbers hides raw counts.

- contaminants from estimating sediments, a big driver is flame retardants.
- fish leaving estuaries earlier, the more developed the rivers the fewer survive from the early batch. Having them stay longer is not better when the river is a super fund site like the Duwamush
- zooplankton diets have changed from largely fish remains to crab larvae amphipods, etc

Salmon used to be diverse, more plentiful and much larger. Salmon runs are important to the ecosystem and the environment and the economy bringing oceanic resources up in to inland and mountain watersheds.

Fishing has declined but numbers have not recovered!

Learning about salmon recovery over lunch at work today. Local group called Long Live the Kings

Things also get wacky and maybe unbearable in the stage where my document and thought hierarchy is in a web tool that may not play well with emacs.
Do I strip Emacs to a bare programming environment and exwm and finishing bending Firefox to my will or switch to qutebrowser and enable chromium dominence? This is why I want embeddable gecko.
Do I build an output connector to sync a directory of org mode files with CAS?
build two parallel UIs, one in clojurescript and one in emacs?

Mozilla needs to give me a trivially embeddable browser engine for this to be optimal though gosh darnit.

The folks who did the Capstone tablet and a bunch of other incredible experiments are a group I would love to share a prototype of this with.

Sorry this essay should have gone in to my fuCKING PROTOTYPE instead of mastodon. But I'm in bed and my laptop isn't.

A decade out and the system is self-programmable, a native, programmable desktop environment which seamlessly connects to a grid of sensors, objects, and APIs around the world and fit to me as if it were skin. Nodes coming and leaving as my laptop and I go offline on the far country and in to foreign countries, syncing what I create and what my server finds me, and giving me the tools to share those with my friends and family.

When I have a skeleton built out, I start modeling task tracking within this system. Query reports run and send me a push notification with my day agenda in it. A graph of tasks is connected to a document I'm working on, a project interface mixing metadata and files. I can publish any snippet of text to a web page and publish that over activity pub and rss feeds. I can bring e-mail and rss in to the system and rebuild adaptive scoring in a client I have hope of being able to use on the bus.

The only part of this that needs sync is the metadata store, and its also the most complex part. If I had something like pouchdb in anything but JavaScript that would be ideal. But I could also do a sync protocol which would be an interesting thing to build in three or five years.
And the local file store but that's what Syncthing is for.

A content addressable store that has cascading storage rules from memory to local disk to backblaze.
A graph of jsonb metadata objects which can link to objects in the CAS and a set of APIs and object models which represent things I want to link and search.
A set of front end servers, largely web, maybe sensors.

And so I have plans back nearly a decade and forward as far to build a piece of software for myself. A truly selfish act. By luck or promise it'll be built in components, most of which will be given freely, under reciprocal terms, in a way that does not necessarily foster collaboration.

rrix but ghost but cybre's choices:


Cybrespace is an instance of Mastodon, a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.
