Journals for the last 10 days
Going to go along to commons.hour tonight.
- sometimes seen as forerunners of modern anarchism
- Tried tab groups in vscode to handle my tab sprawl in foam and it nuked my tabs. Hit a weird bug in which it kept cycling through tabs uselessly too. Another day, another bug.
- Yesterday I spent a lot of time in developing the exec pattern in Agora server. With the light of another day, I wonder if I should have gone for a full client-side implementation instead for the simple things I had in mind: automatic wp subnodes pointing to the most relevant Wikipedia page for each node (when one is found through the Wikipedia API). But I still think the server-side exec pattern might come in handy, so I'll probably finish piping it through and enable a simple example.
- Today I'd like to:
- I also need to pack for the offsite.
- python in the browser
- send it to the ceo, a game
- vos y yo, juntos, venceremos a moloch
- karl marx
- scott aaronson

Twitter knows it's spreading right-wing lies.
Twitter released internal research showing it “amplifies more tweets from rightwing politicians and news outlets than content from leftwing sources.” That’s something anyone paying attention has known for a while, but I guess it’s good to see the platform at least admit it
So yes, it’s good to have proof of something we’ve known for a while, but don’t give Twitter too much credit when it’s still amplifying right-wing content and its CEO is not only complicit, but pushing right-wing trash of his own
Labour under Keir Starmer sucks.
Big tech relies on the victims of economic collapse.

"when public spaces are eliminated, so ultimately is the public; the individual has ceased to be a citizen capable of experiencing and acting in common with fellow citizens"
- For various reasons I only finally just got my brother's Christmas 2020 gift to me - it was Celebrate People's History: The Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution and it is fantastic. Over a hundred inspiring posters celebrating moments of resistance and revolution.
- the stoa is auto pulled again by default -- in view mode, so it doesn't interfere with loading (steal focus) and also presents nicely in nodes like node club.

I wonder if I should use ntlk a bit in the Agora -- currently it's all regexes, all the way down, but some lever of text understanding would go a long way w.r.t. surfacing actually related content.
I'm also wondering if I should do the Wikipedia integration client-side-first or with some support from agora server. Nice thing of keeping it wholly in the client is that it would keep the server-side rendering path lean (no network calls, only filesystem).
Listened: Face off: the government versus GPs
- The government is playing chicken with GPs. Ultimately to undermine the NHS. Part of a narrative that it is to blame for any shortcomings. A narrative aided and abetted by papers like the Daily Mail.
- Like Bill Seitz describes here - http://webseitz.fluxent.com/wiki/TendingYourInnerAndOuterDigitalGardens - I have a completely private 'inner garden' that is for personal stuff. It never gets published to my public digital garden.
I've got a problem with my org-publish. The export of tracks.org seems to be super slow and in fact causes the gitlab runner to kill the process. tracks.org is a huge unordered list. For now I've just excluded it from the publish in the :export option. I guess I'll try and recreate with a minimal setup and then get help from the org list if it persists.
- Of Bernard Moitessier: "he only remains of the ocean and hates school."
- When we we deal with buildings, we deal with dead people and lose. They make our world more solid. They are attempts at permanence, at an unchanging immortality.
- "A building is always building and rebuilding."
- A good way to look at something more more as a whole is to ask 'what happens to and in X over time'?
- In the port of Long Beach during the supply chain slow down of 2021, it was said (by Flexport) that maintenance was a bottleneck. There was a shortage of skilled laborers to conduct that maintenance, and many appointments were no-shows. Why were trucks missing their appointments? Possibly a lack of pricing that would encourage trucks to show up?
- You cannot fully anticipate function.
- What is necessary? What may become necessary?

finished cleaning my firefox tabs using tabfs
- it's annoying tabfs is a temporary extension so I need to re-set-up every time, but the coolness makes it be worth it
- honestly I don't get why unsigned extensions can't persist in Firefox
- yeah, that was a great idea as usual
- la roche posay
- versarial interop
- applying mindfulness
- Follow the rhythm of the environment.
- What do you need to make do and mend? If you specialize in something, you will over prepare for that thing and underprepare in everything else. If you have something new, ask: how will it break? how will you maintain it? who knows how to maintain it when it breaks?
- Prepare for the worst.
- In Disneyland, horses wear horseshoes with a polyurethane coating that help them clop louder. Is there something that makes footsteps quieter?
- Disney counted the number of steps that a person would walk before throwing trash on the ground- that was about thirty steps, so they make trash cans thirty steps apart.
- Nerdwallet optimized everyday finance calculators and generators to match Google searches, so that when you search for a 'mortgage calculator', etc, you find Nerdwallet. Similarly, Shopify comes up when you search for a business name generator.
- Figure out how people find what they're looking for. 2. Make what you have easy to find wherever they're looking for it.
Reading: A People's Guide to Capitalism. Enjoying it muchly thus far. Making clear a bunch of concepts I've sort of half-grasped before, but never really fully. Not saying I fully do yet either, but it's helping for sure.
Robot dogs with guns. What could possibly go wrong.
