work, society (-)
I was raised to be a kind and understanding person, then I grew up, entered the adult world, and realized most people are not. Capitalism rewards cruelty and exploitation. Kindness and patience is seen as weakness. Intelligence and creativity is not rewarded unless it can be monetized.
I'm really excited in the trends in hobbyist computing recently. The maker community is really starting to gain traction and their focus on keeping hardware accessible I feel is essential to bringing computing back to the masses not as a consumer good but as a public domain. I think it's essential that we focus on lowering all the barriers we can to getting people actively solving their problems in ways that preserve their freedoms and expand our domain of knowledge.
Preserving repairable, accessible hardware is as important as preserving software freedom and I'm really glad we have a subculture that understands that.

I'd like to reword that ridiculous "Get a job doing something you love, and you'll never have to work a day in your life", if I may?
"Get a job doing something you love (If it's even possible, which it probably isn't, if it doesn't generate profit instantly.), and Capitalism will grind you under its heel until the thing you enjoyed is now something you merely endure to get a paycheck that won't be enough to live on."
Take over an abandoned big box store and build homes inside it. They don't need to be protected from the elements thanks to the structure already surrounding them, so you only need to worry about them being structurally sound if you're going to be building multi-level homes inside the building.
Why are mal-warts so fucking tall inside? Let's use that space for something other than making the malton family rich.
Big cat. Oft grumpy cat. Also often greasy/oily/dirty cat.
