The final writeup of my build of the Griz Sextant Raspberry Pi cyberdeck.

Thanks again to the original designer creating and releasing the files for this.

The whims of the rich aren't progress.

A billionaire buying himself a space plane is not a triumph but proof of how billionaires are toxic policy failures.

It's no different than them buying another super yacht. #tw

when a billionaire goes to space you can legally just take anything they own on Earth

It's the Griz!

The build of the Raspberry Pi cyberdeck/laptop is complete (for the most part, with plenty of hacks).

Writeup forthcoming.

I think I've never been more forcibly struck than today with the realisation that today's Web developers have never used 1980s BASIC systems and just have no awareness that computers used to be things you could both use and program interactively, in the same session.

We've deprived an entire couple generations of children of a basic formative mind-expanding experience of cognitive freedom, and now they're making tools that restrict other people's thought lives and see nothing wrong with that.

Well, it's happening. Looks like Twitter is getting rid of their chronological timeline feature. I'm seeing it disappear only to reappear on a refresh.

Back to the engagement slot machine.

"Cleveland is trying to create a less car-centered city — against tough odds.

But public transit and walkable neighborhoods could help solve two problems at once: climate change and fairness."

Update on my Griz Sextant Raspberry Pi cyberdeck/laptop build

I print a tall part and get the keyboard together

instead of actually trying to solve social problems in Cleveland, elites are pushing it to others saying all you need to do to solve violence, poverty, and racism is to be kind to others
