Will be starting to learn #clojure from today onwards. Have been meaning to pick up a modern LISP for a long time.
Why: Intend to keep picking up new languages as long as I can. This is a way to go on a journey of discovery, learning, and knowledge. Keep the mind sharp.
How: Would be going about this by working through SICP after more than a decade, this time in #clojure.
Follow along here if you are interested, and please help out!

The first thing to do when starting to engage with another business as your customer, is figure out who can say 'yes' and who can say 'no'. A lot of times, it is not clear who can say 'yes' but everyone can say 'no'. #StartupLife
Just finished preparing my presentation for the European Parliament on Tuesday. I’m representing @Mastodon and small technology there on a panel to discuss the future of the Internet and I hope we can get the regulators to at least not fuck things up for our ethical alternatives.
My slides (not hugely meaningful without the narrative but in case you’re curious) are here:
Remind me again why I let you talk me into this, @Gargron? ;P
The romantic image of an über-programmer is someone who fires up Emacs, types like a machine gun, and delivers a flawless final product from scratch. A more accurate image would be someone who stares quietly into space for a few minutes and then says “Hmm. I think I’ve seen something like this before.” - recent post, John D Cook.
