I remember the day when I learned that the central controller for the Hubble Space Telescope was an i80286 processor. (Separate instruments have their own processors, IIRC.)

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because your judgement and intentions are.

“When we interviewed a sample of them, they all told us the same thing: They assumed Microsoft had delivered it turned off for a reason, therefore who were they to set it otherwise. ‘Microsoft must know what they are doing,’ several of the participants told us.”

If you haven't heard, SDF's 35th birthday is coming up. To celebrate, there will be a 35 hour marathon stream on aNONradio.net starting on the 15th at 1400 UTC.

I'm excited to stream an hour set on the 16th at 0400 UTC. I'll be playing a studio mix I create 10 years ago that was a compilation of my favorite mash-ups at the time.

✨ The curse of strong typing

It's been decided. "Only Rust from here on out!"

I'm livid. I haven't seen that many type errors since I texted my 7yo niece. How in the world am I going to get anything done?

Even the wildest guesses fell short of Apple's jaw-dropping, industry-leading fuckery. This month, The Verge's Sean Hollister ordered an Apple home repair kit, and found himself in possession of *79 pounds* of Apple gear:

It is so amazing what #Mozilla has achieved:

Back in 2013 asm.js, which has now evolved into #WebAssembly #WASM - one of the most relevant technologies for computing in the future.

2015, what has started as a research project by Graydon Hoare, the #Rust programming language, which will define how we will develop software in the future.

I think people don't appreciate this enough.

Maybe they should think instead of doing what numbers are telling...

I'm sick of being around cars, having to hear cars, see cars, breathe their fumes, worry about getting hit by them, walk around parked cars when I wanna cross the street, hear people talk about cars, live in a city that's built around cars cars cars cars cars...

#RightToRepair will become an absolute necessity in the near future. Having all the supply chain completely fucked up and prices all over increasing like never before, people will need to learn how to do stuff themselves instead of pulling a credit card.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
