I know nothing about chess, but I am loving Joey Comeau's oft-shirtless cyberpunk speed chess videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCytr76fNot64sT50tndgy6w
I might still be going to church if holy communion was managed this way.

I wrote a blog post about doing some fun things in Racket and how lenses made the trade-off between structured and free-form data much less troublesome:

Joel Spolsky talks about why he's stopped reading Facebook and Twitter, and digs deeper into how algorithms and addiction are shaping a terrible future:
Plz welcome my coworker @SimonTraction to Mastodon!
Yay, won my first game of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup! Minotaur Berserkers are pretty great. Thanks for the recommendation @Jephjacques -- especially for recommending the Ultraviolent4 videos, they realllllyyyy helped out
I would personally like to apologize for the antispam movement of the late 90s and early 00s. We did more harm than good. Nothing we did reduced the amount of spam significantly, and we created the centralization of email, where not only does your personal email belong to a monopolist, but to have an email newsletter, you must hire another monopolist to send it.
Writing a little thing in Racket (bot for interacting with Braid (new chat project I've been working on (https://github.com/braidchat/braid))), I've been very pleasantly surprised by how unsurprising & easy everything has been.
Happy New Year Mastodon! I wrote about the books I read this year: http://occasionallycogent.com/2018/01/01/books_of_2017.html

Our twins are four months old today, and holidays are approaching, and I thought it would be a good idea to give a little something to someone who could use it. This coming Sunday, I'll buy the "Be a Coder" bundle (https://www.humblebundle.com/books/be-a-coder-books) to someone who needs, and wants it.
If you'd like to have it, or know someone who would, and you (or them) can't buy it, contact me. Either via DM, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Boosting this toot for better coverage is most appreciated!

So looking forward to see these in the wild. More #Kaleidoscope powered keyboards <3!
I make computer things in Toronto, mostly in Clojure. I powerlifting, strongman, and Highland Games How are you?
