I'm so old I remember when the entire tech industry FREAKED THE HECK OUT at the idea of 'Total Information Awareness' and now it's just 'yeah, that's literally our business plan, what's wrong with it'

Nothing worth understanding is worth live debating. Knowledge production progresses by stretching out debates in time. Debate dilation. Even a few seconds of deliberative delay between debate moves increases the intelligence. This is why Twitter at its best is much wittier than live conversation.

It’s probably worth it for someone to scrape and archive his writing there against the day that Quora tanks.

Something I’m excited about with ActivityPub is how we collectively figure out what to do about portable data on the web. No one has ever really needed to solve for the general problem of, like, presenting YouTube comments inside Facebook.

"Block’hood is a neighborhood-building simulator that celebrates the diversity and experimentation of cities and the unique ecosystems within them. Budding city planners will have access to 90+ building blocks to arrange and combine and to create unique neighborhoods and discover the implications of their designs. The game will embark on a story of ecology and understanding as additional resources are always needed to unlock new blocks, configurations, and combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks by making sure each unit doesn’t run out of resources and become a strain on the complimentary units around them."

"For [film scholar Steven Shaviro], this visceral contact resonates with contagion, a term that aptly accommodates both the “dance fever” that overcomes DDR’s players and its implicit threat of homosexual infection."

"Since they first appeared, ‘Smart Home’ devices have been marketed as faithful servants, ready to aid and assist their owners. The truth is that they have been designed to serve only the interests of capital as houses become assets. We need to start imagining digital technologies that could serve emancipatory projects aimed at ensuring homes for all that are not just ‘smarter’ but happier, safer and more secure" autonomy.work/portfolio/beware

They're so allergic to their GPL violations but hounded hundreds of companies for millions each over "their" patent violations since Linux somehow violates over 200 of them. I'm really disliking this company more and more by the moment.
