I dunno.

Nothing much to say about myself.

I read mostly history of . I'm into but just starting to learn.

Sometimes I write fables (read.cicadas.surf/fables/). I have a soft spot for classical languages (where people still inflected nouns).

I've never driven a car.

I got into computers because of a zine I bought at a punk show in the 90s about "hacking" and

Antisocial nerd gets so angry at a printer that he plagiarizes someone's text editor, launching a movement that creates a vibrant ecosystem of Free computer software, and some hardware too.

Printers continue their sinister trajectory unchanged.

The new joinmastodon.org site design looks good, but I'm a bit put off by the list of supporters. Most of them are online casinos, but there is also cryptocurrency service, buying Instagram followers and help for cheating in your studies.

I guess the policy is to take whatever money is sent their way, but that might not be the best policy in the long term.

I have a strong impression that Habermas views politics as a problem (at least in theory) solvable through rational discussion, while both Arendt and Mouffe see politics as necessarily an arena of conflict, which is not possible to solve. I can't find where I would have read this. Is this just my impression? Can you suggest readings on this?

If we ever get superintelligent AI's, let's give them Emacs. They'll be too busy configuring it to bother with taking over the world.

For any serious scholars who might actually read it. The series is more of a brainstorming session that I decided to publish. There are several apparent conflicts in some of the definitional foci, conflicts I mean to dive into further... sometime.

I recently added some writings to my blog in the space of or of and perhaps tangentially related to .

I have bee fascinated, for a while now, with a term I call - a capacity of the world that encourages people to play. It seems to me that most of the thought in ludology focuses on games. But I think this "toy-centric" play is overlooked and quite important.

If anybody is interested: I made a blog series:

CLOS & Metaobject Protocol 

To any who may be interested in some and especially content for the moderately indoctrinated, looking to learn about the MOP, I have been posting to my blog again:

Something that's been bothering me recently is my relationship with tools.

Often, I'll read about someone I admire in some way using a tool, and I'll get into a rabbit hole exploring this tool, as if using the same tool will grant me some of the admirable qualities of that person.

It's nice to learn new tools, and I've ended up with some really good ones this way (Emacs, for one), but I find that in the process I lose sight of the creative goal the tool is meant to facilitate.

Feel free to check out the early alpha version of something pretty exciting! A full fledged aSCIIbENCH complete with Hippoplayer etc! Still early days, keep that in mind, this will evolve massively in the future. workbench.asciiarena.se
Pro tip, in Hippoplayer, press new, then volumes, and then click Modules: for a big archive of Amiga music to play.

i've got a new homepage:

cicadas.surf/~shoshin

it brings me joy because i can share with the world from a space that is more like homes i've enjoyed living in, a community space of friends doing weird things.

my weird thing is getting delight from publishing this page directly from #emacs #orgmode via Tramp and being able to also re-publish my early 4-track / cassette music mostly via Emacs as well :P

please enjoy, i hope you feel inspired to make or learn something!

I've been day dreaming about a that that adds function tagging - where functions are tagged by the in which they operate. I was thinking about what I like best about , and it isn't the full expressiveness of the type system. Its mostly the IO and and related monads. The compiler might then be able to optimize pure functions, and ensure that IO code doesn't appear inside pure code, etc. Of course, without typeclasses people would complain 😋
