web surfing has become all but impossible. nothing links anymore, it's all narcissistic inside linking if anything. i used to surf links across the network, stumbling from one thing to the next, surprises and missteps. now it's all search hubs and feeds rather than networks.

what we use now via the http protocol isn't really the web anymore. there's no web here. it's all silos, standing alone and trying desperately to keep me from leaving. no longer a digital ocean, now small tide pools with no path between, left in the receding wake of the surf.

Mark your calendars #emacsconf

Everything from typesetting Gregorian chants to Perso-arabic input methods to GNUs-not-the-unix-philosophy to, you know, to the joys of org mode to invoicing to editing text (yes, #emacs does that too !). It's an amazing community.

Hello friends, I thought I'd share how my first year of proper vegetable gardening went - so much better than I even expected!

It was a lot less work than I thought it would be, thanks to the no-dig method, and literally ever veggie I ate was so much prettier and tastier than any store bought one.

If you have the space and a bit of money to get started (mostly just buying compost) you can definitely do this! Its not as hard as one might think. Here to answer any questions!

What's your primary OS?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

Dear Fedizens, a naive question: if I rarely look at my local feed, am I on the wrong instance?

"At the beginning of the age of the automobile...a very intense discussion about whether a car should be allowed on the road and who should be at fault when a car drives over a 4-year-old in the street.

In the 1930s, we ended up as a society deciding that 4-year-olds should be the one to blame. We began to train people even before they began to speak about how to cross the street and how to avoid it in the street. We redesigned our world to be safe for automobiles and dangerous for children."

software freedom beyond RMS 

seeing a great thread about how to talk about this without talking about him.

I sympathize with the impulse. It echoes an earlier struggle to talk about and teach without continuing to elevate another three-lettered self-inserted software sage, whose contributions have been more modest. I'm not going to name him (yeah, of course it's "him"). So, I've been thinking about how to balance an honest accounting & appraisal of the history without undue, even harmful, valorization.
