Hello!

I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!

"woo the internet is dying, now we gotta make a new one just for techies and nerds just like it was in the 90s" is a bad take.

the internet and whatever comes after it needs to be accessible.

"normal" people aren't killing the open web, capitalism is.

fediverse, recommend me a game engine suitable for a beginner to make a simple 2D game in

boosts appreciated :boost_ok:

Living your life is a task so difficult, it has never been attempted before.

If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed

But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees

I'm out of spoons but the world keeps asking for more.
