I guess I should do an #introductions, given the influx of new people.
I'm Eric, I live in Ohio (it's approximately as bad as it sounds), I throw computers at people for a living, and I have a varied set of interests:
* #retrocomputing is a big one for me, I post about it over on @bhtooefr
* #transportation, including #cars, #bicycles, #trains, and #planes
* #sustainability, #solar, #renewables
* I have opinions on politics. Not very left by Masto standards, off-the-scale left by US standards.

@Elizafox the funniest thing about the permanent record is that you still have to send in a copy of your paperwork every time you want something done bureaucratically
for being a system of permanent recording, it's pretty sucky at keeping records

The problem with every political system, proposed or otherwise, is actual really simple.
The problem is people are absolutely fucking shitty.
I've yet to see any system that works with this assumption in mind.
Computing, transportation, energy... really anything interesting.
