@noracodes Hackers should have a naming day ceremony at age 25 or so where they take on a new handle and the community gathers together to help them scrub everything they've posted previously off of the internet

Enthusiasm. A wonderful feeling.

Children can be enthusiastic about anything pretty much throughout the day. It’s a beautiful thing to witness. They literally can pick up a cool looking leaf and imagine a whole new world within it.

Most adults have lost that function. Or in fact, we were robbed off of it. Through discipline, education, lectures, punishments, restrains, conditional love.

Children aren’t adults with missing parts. Adults are broken children.

Social networks are just an effortless and transparent blending of two things:

1) Casual conversations with friends.
2) The ability for any of those conversations to be seen by four billion people.

Perfectly healthy. Very little room for things to go catastrophic.

If someone generally and genuinely thinks they’re awesome, that’s not based on an objective standard but it’s also inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. It’s confidence for the self. It’s motivating for the self. It might annoy you hearing someone hype themselves or back themselves… but why?

This goes back to what I said a while ago: you cannot love yourself too much in a world that insists you make yourself as small as possible.

Idea for a live stream: linux office hours. Get a panel of folks who know linux pretty well; and let people call in with their problems. Maybe time-box each call to 15 mins max in case the issue is something that takes a longer time to diagnose; but in those cases advice on next steps could be given.

Kind of want to teach a class in downscaling a web site. 99% of web sites don't need 99% of today's common infrastructure. (And 100% of things that are Facebook pages should be their own web sites.)

I'm very happy to present the first chapter of our new story set in Canonicity's open content (CC-BY-SA-NC) Known Universes!

Chapter 1 of The Maiden-Heretic of Laclathan is live: canonicity.org/works/TMHOL

Loads of very famous books enter public domain in 2024 including Lady Chatterley's Lover, Orlando and Call of Cthulhu.

We can presumably expect lots of interesting adaptations.
