New blog post: "Tech veganism" https://nolanlawson.com/2019/05/31/tech-veganism/

Notre Dame fire,possibly + framing?,I guess this is a take but not like a TAKE take
I've seen a few things like "this is the end" or "this was 600 years old and now it's gone" or stuff,
like. Notre Dame was built 600 years ago, yes, but it was and has been redone and changed and reworked almost constantly since then.
Most of the statues are from the 1800s. The spire which just burned down -- although there had been A spire at its construction -- was from the 1900s. Many of the iconic windows have been reconstructed twice over now -- at least once because of fire, even.
Notre Dame is a LIVING BUILDING, and it will be rebuilt and restored -- and redone, slightly, because things change.
This isn't the end of it's 600 year history. It's just another page.
