I really hope this is true! I've always *felt* it to be true, even way back in the 80s era of cassette tapes and modem BBSes. It always felt like we were the pioneers of a new underground and there was this vast potential for radical decentralisation.

but, lol, I spent all my time online downloading games, and most of my programming time making games, and not even great games. And now I don't even do much programming and what little I do seems to be harder

This articulates my frustration with the cognitive dissonance of people who know that Big Tech is bad but continue to embolden it.

"Perhaps, deep down, we are aware of our hypocrisy, which informs our expressions of outrage. The tweets, the hot takes, podcasts, and talking heads on — everything is theater. We are simply distracting ourselves from ourselves, avoiding the feeling that we are ultimately powerless when it comes to meaningfully influencing the outcome. "

A single typo in an Open Street Map entry caused an ordinary 2-story building in Melbourne to become an eerie 212-story pillar.

The Melbourne Monolith is now the most famous landmark in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. A successful completion of the Monolith Challenge is to land neatly on its roof.

@dankwraith yeah i mean you can think about all education this way; the reason education is valuable is because the world is full of infinite fractal beauty and complexity and a lifetime of learning about it is the best way to spend your limited time on earth, but instead we just think of education as a glorified job training program

JIRA, grumpy 

So, email signature policy combined with #JIRA allowing replies by email means that now this JIRA thread is full of one-line responses each padded with 10-line signatures.

I don't know whose fault this is, but someone has to pay for this.

Teotihuacan: City of Gods - an unbelievably well done euro. Great balance, interplay with theme and mechanics all the way around. (I swear I am not saying it because I won ;P)

Listening to Kind of Blue, sad to hear Jimmy Cobb has passed. Another great one is gone.

Please enjoy the sunset from Phu Quoc Island Vietnam. With all the pain and suffering perhaps it’s nice to take just a moment to enjoy a sunset. I took this last year on the island. Wherever you are. Whatever Timezone you call home. Take a moment and see the world. #photography #vietnam
