Site.js and Pi
Yesterday, I released Site.js 12.8.0 which brings initial ARM support for Linux.
What that means is that it’s now easier than ever to get a static or dynamic (Node.js) web server up and running on a Raspberry Pi.
Have a Raspberry Pi lying around? Why not dust it off this weekend and have a play and learn how to create your own basic WebSocket-based chat app! ;)
Someday I hope all of our chips were fabbed by a hardware hacker down the street
Tutorial: Build a simple chat app with Site.js
I want to take you step-by-step through building and running a basic chat app using Site.js. It’s much easier than you think, so fire up a terminal window, grab your code editor, and let’s get started!

"The cloud is the future" my ass.
Money is an abstraction to represent value. It's not a good abstraction, but it persists because the global economy is in a local minimum because the disadvantages of sharing information outweigh the advantages. An economy with sufficient incentives for economic agents to communicate their values directly without the abstraction layer would be more efficient, assuming the existence of an agreeable language for that communication
I could tag someone to provide details about valueflows, which is a grammar for that language, but that's probably more information than you want. The important thing to know is that the benefits of collectives aren't just for adversarial situations where we interface with capitalism. We have a basis for building economic networks that are competitive with capitalist business units comparable in size while being just to labor, community, and the environment
The issue is bringing trust-based networks up to scale with multinational corporations. This can happen, but folks are still working on the software support
My interest is in using games to replace discourse an evidence-based approach to economic, social, and political theory
New blog post!
Surveillance Capitalism and the Climate Crisis
I said to my friend, "I don't want to talk about that, I find the topic to be toxic for my energy". He said "why are our interactions always on your terms?" I said "they're not, they're on both our terms. #Social #interactions are #voluntary in nature. One person can't force another to engage in social interactions that violate their preferences, and if they were to do so, it's understandable that they may be met with refusal."
This is pretty neat. The shared symbols between Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic writing systems
This is, hands down, one of the best articles I have read this week:
"I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)"
Windows 10 is DRM digital RENTAL media. You will NEVER own your PC again.
There are no tasks not to be accomplished with Linux of modern that one did via Microsoft Windows.
Windows 10 setup now prevents local account creation; in practice it forces the user to sign in with a Microsoft account.

Things are going down on Stackoverflow. One mod has been fired, others have stepped down, and now there are calls for mods to strike.
I learned how to block internet access to certain programs on Linux, thanks to a reddit post. All you need is firejail and you type the following command:
firejail --net=none (appname)
So for example, firejail --net=none firefox would launch firefox with internet access blocked. It's a pretty useful command.

Just watched episode 1 of 37 of John Vervaeke's "Awakening from the Meaning Crisis". Looks like it's going to be awesome 😃
