"allvm-meta" is now public, containing little meta but two items that are worth sharing couldn't be more different:

* The ALLVM Logo source files and renderings
* Most (?) of the bsd kernel module I wrote for close-to-bare hosting of enough of an LLVM JIT to codegen the bitcode for FreeBSD kernel. From 2013! \o/
The latter isn't documented and is missing some minor bits (patches for uclibc, LLVM, etc.) that once I get a spare weekend I'll search old backups for.

Here's an interesting thread where Alan Kay explains what he thinks he meant by object oriented: userpage.fu-berlin.de/~ram/pub

But here's an interesting thread which comments that what we think we know we meant with our intentions might actually be covered by the clarity of our retrospection: lobste.rs/s/4s7h7w/dr_alan_kay

I agree with that, and am probably guilty of it myself with AP.

Also, interesting E-design-reflections in that thread by Corbin Simpson: lobste.rs/s/4s7h7w/dr_alan_kay

It's fucked up that "maybe some things should just exist to beneft society and not make money" is such a controversial idea.

'It is always a little sad to see what the people rich enough to have everything actually want. They do not want to participate in the world at all; they want to build their own simulacrum of it and float away forever, secure in the knowledge that none of the lesser people or things that populate the earth will ever be allowed to intrude.'

Fascinating Twitter thread on how Garrett Hardin, the 'Tragedy of the Commons' guy not only got the historical commons wrong, but was also a full-on racist and white nationalist who promoted the idea of 'white genocide'

<<In my mind, it’s not that Hardin WOULD HAVE been a Trumper. It's that he WAS a Trumper before Trump was a Trumper. He helped build the entire intellectual movement Trump has since exploited. >>

TIL: The RFC6350 (vCard) defines relationship types such as 'crush', 'sweetheart', and 'muse'.

I need a muse

the fediverse reminds me a lot of how things used to be in the '90s a.k.a. the golden age of computing

back when we all had our own dorky fuckin websites on tripod or angelfire or geocities, all unique, all human

back before the internet was taken over by soulless monolithic corporations bent on forcing spy cameras into their users' every orifice

back before advertisers had built themselves a surveillance empire to dwarf the NSA's

back when we were all genuine and sincere and *ourselves.* even if we were total fuckin dorks

all of a sudden these little grassroots social spaces are popping up, with unique and quirky domains, full of people who aren't such cowards that they spend their lives hiding behind a curtain of ironic detachment. it's like the experimental chaos of the '90s but tempered by experience and improved by new technology

there's a reason IRC and pleroma are the only ways i actually *like* interacting with ppl online
