Two books, thousand+ years apart. One perception of reality.
“For that reason an infinite game cannot be abstracted, for it is not a part of the whole presenting itself as the whole, but the whole that knows it is the whole.”
~ Finite and Infinite Games
“Though both appear as one, we focus on the wave, not the ocean, the image, not the mirror, the dream, not the dreamer, the object, not the mind.”

I just authored an introduction to #solid in a runnable Nextjournal notebook. If you're curious about how this next-gen internet technology works, it doesn't get much easier than running a server in a notebook. #SolidProject https://nextjournal.com/schmudde/node-solid-server
Engineering alone can’t fix what’s wrong with the internet - my short reflection on the lessons we learn by caring for the software we create. #digitalart #medienkunstwerk https://schmud.de/posts/2021-09-07-fix-my-code.html
Lovely retrospective by Brewster Kale and 25 years of the irreplaceable #internetarchive. Even better, this photo of him at Thinking Machines. https://blog.archive.org/2021/07/21/reflections-as-the-internet-archive-turns-25/
@sean I’ve definitely been down that rabbit hole. I’m very happy that so many cyclists feel compelled to make videos on how to fix your bike. And praise the phone geeks who want to detail every pro and con of countless black glass pocket slabs.
@sean the shortcut, of course, is asking a few knowledgeable, passionate people. It seems like the internet - or even Mastodon - should help make this easier. But somehow finding the right person to ask doesn’t feel so much easier.
Things I will be doing if Apple goes ahead with its plans to violate the sanctity of your devices:
- Remove Better Blocker from the iOS and Mac app stores.
- Stop recommending Apple as a privacy-protecting alternative outside of China (already wasn’t in China)
- Stop using an iPhone and not buy another Apple phone/computer (had already moved my daily driver dev machine to Linux three years ago).
- Not write another line of code for their platforms.
