im terrified of the impermanence of technology. everything i used to like about technology is now gone, or has completely changed. new things have emerged that i like. but i can't invest myself in anything mainstream any more. what's the point? it'll be gone too!!! thats why, like all the other extremely cool people, ive become obsessed with making everything in a really simple way, and go all weird and my eye starts twitching when people talk about new layers of abstraction

Does Consciousness Create Reality?

youtube.com/watch?v=h75DGO3GrF

been kind of enjoying this dude's ~10min physics videos lately, he's pretty good at packing some real big concepts into a bite-size chunk of time

the fuck is this cat gonna do when I'm gone?? nobody else does that with him.

he clearly likes me best and he's not even my cat, which is its own tiny diplomatic issue, albeit a surmountable one.

(answer: he'll adapt. he's a cat. but still.)

tfw your favorite of the housemates cats hasn't learned how to exist on couches/beds/chairs with human beings, and now you're contractually obligated to carry him around in your arms for at least 15 total minutes per day so he can have the time he so clearly wants to spend laying on top of a human being & rattling while completely relaxed

Brazil’s virus outlook darkens amid vaccine supply snags

Public health experts blame President Jair Bolsonaro for refusing to enact strict measures to halt infections and for clashing with governors and mayors who did.

Failure to control the spread has been compounded by the Health Ministry betting big on a single vaccine. Authorities ignored other producers and squandered opportunities until it was too late to get large quantities of vaccine.

I wonder when I'm gonna be forced to switch to something other than Fedilab given that no development is happening. Probably should learn to use Subway Tooter.

@cjd @jz engaging in disastrous non-communication regarding their shitcoin is 100% on-brand, they have had piss-poor community engagement since it was still called TextSecure

ahh I just looked again and it's a lot harder to see the weird creepy compression effect when not watching it at full 1080p.

remember how the remote video feeds in Aliens were full of smeary analog vidicon tube artifacts, which somehow made them all the more creepy?

if anybody were to remake that film but with early-2020s cyberpunk dystopia tech, they should make the video feeds look like this: youtu.be/DbwZ8eoQrTY?t=240

reality is doing that thing again where the *exact instant* I open a window and begin typing commands to do some work, a human being materializes nearby to break my concentration
