Hey GNU/Linux #distro maintainers, it would be awesome if your homepages all had a standard page - something like www.distroX.org/partitions - describing the default partition scheme your latest release sets up and why. There are so many options; partition table types, numbers and types of partitions, file systems, encryption or not, LVM or not. So much contradictory information on the web about them all. Being able to read and compare what distro mainainers say about it would be really helpful.
'On the General Architecture of the Peer Web' is an excellent essay by #AralBalkan of Ind.ie, laying out a brief history of the social impacts of computers and networks with a minimum of geek jargon, and some ideas for what the future of digital network technology could hold for us:
In meditation, and life really, the feeling that you can't bear a moment of sensation whether it's itching or pain or some other unpleasant feeling is never quite true, because in that moment you've already bourne it. What's really happening is that you're afraid of the next moment, and it is possible to find true equanimity in the midst of even very unpleasant sensations. -Sam Harris #meditation #contemplation #theliturgists
@jadeddaisy it is "kinda" fun.
@jasper ... I won't pretend to be a constant reader of Greenwald or The Intercept. What I have read has raised concerns that his reporting is biased and reveals an extreme anti-western mind-set. I might be wrong.
You responded, originally, to my post that alluded, however inexpertly, to the value of self-examination preceding outward criticism.
In that light, here's an exchange you might be interested in:
@jasper ... looking forward to learning from this information.
@jasper ... those are all horrible aspects of the world we all participate in. It takes all of us as individuals working together to fight that shit. But focusing on the clowns in the clown car, complaining and berating them for having the same kinds of petty weaknesses we all have sucks up too much energy.
I'm speaking generally, of course. Details matter.
No religious solution here. We save ourselves by gathering information and assessing it without regard to our own prejudices and hate.
@codythedragonrude access to quick and dirty edits using vim or nano? I dunno. I've never used this feature.
@jasper ... same punishment the sub-prime mortgage dudes got, right?
Toots galore: not so much.
How about this?

I don't know how to express how much I love this article. I'm glad someone is documenting the history of the internet from more than just the perspective of those who did or didn't make a billion dollars.
