📄 Radio Is My Bomb: A DIY Manual For Pirates, 1987 awkmo.co/radio-is-my-bomb-diy-

“… a wonderfully dated guide to pirate broadcasting. Mostly aimed at activists it covers everything from laws (including going to court and getting gear back), existing stations, equipment and basic ethics to name but a few parts in it’s 72 pages.”

i say a limited capacity because the way it works on the typewriter is there's a separate key for the "word extension" glyph. it works but its not terribly interesting. the same is true of Unicode, where there's a code point (U+0640 ARABIC TATWEEL) which plays the same role.

compare that to the jaw dropping beauty of Ottoman maps that use the elasticity of the script to make labels of things cover and follow the thing they label. digital text rendering cant really do this...

This is tragic and hilarious. I stumbled over idlewords.com/talks/website_ob which was written in 2015.

"Here’s an article on GigaOm from 2012 titled "The Growing Epidemic of Page Bloat". It warns that the average web page is over a megabyte in size.

The article itself is 1.8 megabytes long.
[..]
If present trends continue, there is the real chance that articles warning about page bloat could exceed 5 megabytes in size by 2020."

That article on GigaOm is now 10.8MB. I doubt the text has been edited

Learn a physical skill

Oil/water color painting, cooking, farming, carpentry, knitting, it doesn't matter what. Something besides flipping bits in a magic box

After a whole day of that, I feel like a strong gust can send me into the aether without a tangible anchor in reality

"On stage, walls of sound hold back oceans of of philosophical emptiness, leaking into the tides of market demand. To actually hear all of this deafening "nothingness" and "not-ness" is to hear the First World ego - the subtextual social contents ascribed by the music marketplace in the face of personal ambivalence and naiveté among producers communally dreaming commonplace dreams."

@vidak My 9 year old and I go for a walk at lunch time most days, and he talks about things that interest him, mostly video games and apocalypses. He was speculating the other day on whether the coming apocalypse was going to be nuclear war or zombies and I told him the apocalypse was already happening, and that it's a "slowpocalypse."

The Spirit of Laws by Montesquieu was added to the Index of Prohibited Books of the Catholic Church.

Mein Kampf by Hitler wasn't.

Thinking again about Tour Forello, a building in Tanjombato, Madagascar (a couple of miles from my home) that sits right in the middle of the street because it was built over the footprint of a former roundabout.
