I see the Bitcoin bros have rebranded themselves to "Web3"...

I guess it's only appropriate: we've lost Web 2.0's Yahoo! Pipes alikes and the semantic web, and instead got a non-trivial contribution to global warming and techbros reinventing capitalism from first principles.

Mazel tov!

Aren't you tired from writing your Rust programs in English? Would you like to try something different, exotic and funny? Do you like saying "merde" a lot?

Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.

Do read it and let me know what you think!

The Arecibo radio telescope, the largest observatory in the world for 50 years, collapsed today. Here’s a latch-hook rug I made of the message it broadcast in 1974 and the globular cluster that was the target of that message. Rip you big ass telephone

Reading “The Computer Boys Take Over” — currently the part covering HR practices in the 1950s and 1960s — and it’s insane how little has changed in our industry during the past 50+ years.

I guess I should get used to the feeling, I have a hunch that it’ll be a common recurrence throughout the rest of the book.

Snapped a photo of this little thing at the lake a couple of days ago. Turns out, playing around with telephoto lenses is fun!

There are any number of demo sites where you can type LaTeX math and get mathjax to format it for you in your web browser window, but muboard.net/ looks like a good choice for sharing your screen when conferencing, office hours, etc: markdown for the non-math formatting, set up to look like a blackboard, with no unnecessary distractions, free to copy or modify.

…It’s also victim blaming to tell everyday people they’re at fault for using one of the two main tech platforms instead of an (as of yet inaccessible) alternative. (I have two Pinephones and my room overflows open hardware. No, I don’t blame you for using an iPhone or an Android device. You’re the victim here.)

Blame the actual culprits: clueless legislators/policymakers who allow these monopolies to continue and fail to protect our human rights. Blame Big Tech and those who enable it…
