"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: http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/~ram/pub/pub_jf47ht81Ht/doc_kay_oop_en
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: https://lobste.rs/s/4s7h7w/dr_alan_kay_on_meaning_object_oriented#c_bsidu4
I agree with that, and am probably guilty of it myself with AP.
Also, interesting E-design-reflections in that thread by Corbin Simpson: https://lobste.rs/s/4s7h7w/dr_alan_kay_on_meaning_object_oriented#c_c6j9yn

'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.'

Something I've been meaning to say about The Tragedy of the Commons. Bear with me for a small thread on why our embrace of Hardin is a stain on environmentalism. tldr: we’ve let a flawed metaphor by a racist ecologist define environmental thinking for a half century. 1/
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. >>
@domenic the thread remains, closed, in all its original glory
