Day 5892:
I still don鈥檛 know what I鈥檓 doing, but no one suspects anything

The chinstroke-nod maneuver has worked very well

I keep a stack of paper napkins under my coffee mug to emphasize a sense of aloofness and mild OCD

The intern has started to grow mushrooms on his hoodie

Occasionally, I grab a manilla folder and run down the corridor to escape [redacted] and her terrible small talk

The cat has become one with the discarded PC case and is now an even higher order life form

See you in a while 鉁岋笍

Remember to be good to each other

Good news: I'm getting a remote gig

Bad news: It's way off in the boonies. No connection at all probably so I'll be offline for a good while

I'll be heading out soon with my backpack and laptop

The Akatsuki spacecraft of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) has been streaming images of the planet Venus

Damia Bouic, space imaging processor, and all around awesome person, created these composites from them

I want and support FOSS solutions.

If we want to grow the user base... IF... then we need to be supportive of standard users.

It's that simple.

Those of us comfortable with the current state of affairs are not the target growth demographic.

Posting some of my January hobonichi spreads. It鈥檚 been helpful putting my thoughts in order and some stress relief to get the circular thoughts on paper. #hobonichi #hobonichitecho #planner

Japanese artist Mio Izawa created an iPhone charger with pulsating umbilical cord

This is a tad disturbing, but I think it's worth sharing

There are similar videos on the artist's YouTube page

30 years ago it would have been a newspaper or magazine, comparatively fewer choices, all with someone else controlling the narrative. Today, people control the narrative on their site but you have so many choices. You can read several accounts of an issue and get a better idea of the real truth.

i'm working on a new theory that most of what we self-mockingly file under yak shaving is in fact more socially useful productive labor than the theoretical core tasks of most technical employment.

@cypnk @nev RE:Hacktor, because it could be also helping re-purposing possibly broken tools without having to shelve off a few thousands?

In the Munich airport, I asked the attendants at the full-body scanner if I could avoid the scanner and do a manual check. They accepted immediately without any hesitation and performed a good old-fashioned body check. The guy asked me why don't I trust the full body scanner, and I said I don't know where will the data end up (thanks to @mk). He nodded while saying that he himself cannot give a definitive answer to this question. Overall, I'm very happy that I tried :)
