I was troubleshooting a synchronization problem between an app on my Mac and the network. I found the log for the SyncServer. I was amused to see the comment in the attached log.
For those of you under the age of 90 who don't get the reference, read this:
As we move into a #NewYear, please remember:
✨ The things you create bring joy to others; art makes life worth living
✨ At the same time, the things you create and how much you create don't define your worth. You are worthwhile simply for being you
✨ Take help when you need it, and give where you can. We're all in this together, so let's take care of each other.
You've made it through every year so far, and I'm so proud of you for it. I can't wait to see what you do!
2018 was the year I concluded that any system whose purpose is to measure, capture, and monetize human attention is immoral and inevitably leads to the erosion of the commons and society itself. In 2019 I'm committed to helping dismantle these systems by all possible means.
Concretely this means supporting nonprofit alternatives like mastodon, blocking all ad tracking (sorry, people whose livelihoods have been captured by that industry), and doing whatever most damages the attention industry.

I bought six quarts of eggnog last month (go big or go home!). I then took a photo of my haul to taunt a friend who didn't have any. 😈
I recently thought that maybe I should do some sort of Andy Warhol-esque thing with that photo. After much experimentation, I came up with this.
I also took a few shots with the cell phone. Here are three. The first is a straight shot of the lights winding around a few trees. I then livened things up by intentionally moving the camera, as you can see by the other two shots. I like these two a lot more.
