I kind of don't want to the new Matrix movie to come out. I don't want that chance that it could be bad. A movie that's never released is perfect. Like Jodorowsky's Dune, or something.

I just looked up a musician and for his instruments it says "programming" and "Ableton Live". I mean, sure, those are skills to make music. But calling calling Ableton an _instrument_ is stretching a bit.

There should be no hamburger menus in desktop applications. There's lots of room. Use it.

Checked into Trellis. Trying a CoWorking space to be around people during the day.

In an attempt to get out of my apartment and be around people during the day, I'm going to start working from a coworking spot at times. I know the isn't big on in-person meeting up, but if anybody is in a similar spot to me, and misses being around people, I'm going to try and make Trellis CoWorking in my home a couple days a week. It's $5/hr to camp out here, and it has free coffee. You must be vaccinated, and there's plenty of space.

Did you know that the messages sent to you when you visit the demo server at is really a third party bot that's written by @rarepublic using the built-in APIs?

I still think React Functional Components + Hooks are _way_ less useful, less understandable, and harder to write than the initial class-based way of writing components. Web people seem to love turning their development experience into a mess whenever possible.

I went for a walk to what is now my closest Walgreens. They ran out of bags and were using trash bags, instead.

I miss my old neighborhood Walgreens.

Do you have any need/leads on global remote work, tech, consult, advising, comms, research, managing, etc?

I have been a developer, instructional technologist, lecturer, garlic farmer. Also expert in digital multimedia, broadcasting, show/set/space/installation design.

It's been about three years since I took out my tongue ring, and I still feel like it's there sometimes.
