my brain is now forcing me to port a basic program to javascript to prove some kind of point about continuation passing style and trampolines.

Made a page with my shorter writings on , most of which you might have read here on mastodon:

The point of magazines, broadly, was to identify a demographic that advertisers wanted to reach and hire writers who'd produce material to entice those people to become readers.

By contrast, the point of blogging was to produce the idiosyncratic, personal mix of topics, formats and styles that the *writer* enjoyed, in hopes of attracting readers whose preferences overlapped with the writer's. Blogging wasn't just about becoming widely read - it was about finding your people.

I suspect much of that which we call evil is done in an effort to evade the consequences for lesser evils committed earlier.

Apologies, the formula is (x) AND (x XOR y) (with exclusive or)

f(x,y) = (~((~(y | y)) / ((11 ^ y) ^ (~x)))) % 7

Extent: 256x256 (scaled x2)

Finally got around to playing with visualizations ala the ones that @bitartbot generates and I stumbled upon this function generates a Sierpiński triangle:

(x) AND (x OR y)

Or in JS:

(x, y) =>(((x) & (x^y) === 0)

Here is the output.

Soo, anyone know what's up with that?

From Ursula K. Le Guin:

“For we each of us deserve everything, every luxury that was ever piled in the tombs of the dead kings, and we each of us deserve nothing, not a mouthful of bread in hunger. Have we not eaten while another starved? Will you punish us for that? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate? No man earns punishment, no man earns reward. Free your mind of the idea of deserving, the idea of earning, and you will begin to be able to think.”

Actually, it is not so much that leads to an epidemic of mental illness, it is more that there are many conditions, many people that are so incompatible with capitalism that making them comply will cause the system to lose any human face. We are categorized as sick, because else the system would have to be categorized as such.
