<<one of the primary reasons computers were *created* was to cross reference data. that is nearly impossible in most software now.>>
Another fine rant. That sentence seems to highlight the core of the problem to me.

Werewolves can go on little a Mushroom hunt, as a treat
Vox has a pretty good piece on a strong new strategy on rejecting the previously-thought-binary choice between a focus on racial justice, and an eschewing of this for pure economic populism. Looks like the liberals - and perhaps even centrists - are starting to get it!
A thread. Boosts appreciated, because I'd love to hear the thoughts on this topic from ppl outside my immediate bubble.
I've been thinking recently about the reasons "hardcore gamers" tend to throw a hissy fit when a game has an easy mode or someone talks about adding one.
And I had a minor epiphany.
I think those reasons go beyond the usual suspects (gatekeeping, not wanting others to have fun, being elitist). Those are there, but I think the main reason is subtly different.
Joking about Jordan Peterson's addiction and treatment
Man goes to a Russian doctor.
"Doctor, I am addicted to benzos"
Doctor looks at him and says: "The treatment is simple, great psychologist Jordan Peterson wrote great book "12 rules for life". Go and read it. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor… I am Jordan Peterson"
color interestingness notes (226 words) re: color poll
brown: As Technology Connections noted recently - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wh4aWZRtTwU - you can't actually have brown light without context. You only see brown when an orange-y color is dimmer than the colors around it. Otherwise, it's orange or red or yellow.
purple: Purple is the exact opposite of a spectral color. Color is often described as "light of a particular frequency", but most purples don't exist except as combinations of frequencies - blues mixing with reds without the greens in between.
green: For odd historical reasons, the predominant photosynthesis molecule is green - which makes being able to distinguish greens from higher and lower frequencies useful for diurnal creatures.
(Funnily enough, those odd reasons associate directly with green being opposite purple - apparently there were purple halobacteria in the ocean absorbing the green light and leaving the other colors, so chlorophyll was handy because it absorbed light the halobacteria weren't.)
white: White is kind of the context for color perception - under normal circumstances, the world is awash with the combinations of spectral frequencies we call white, and so under most circumstances we define mentally what "white" is in a context and use that to understand the colors of everything else.
I'm sure there are a lot more interesting colors out there, but I had four options so I picked these.
