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.

At a certain point of tech dorkdom, you realise all standards are lies and that no one actually knows how any consumer electronics work.

FOSS zealots: Please stop telling people this is the year of Linux on the desktop and that Linux is better than Windows/Mac for every use case.

It's not, and it isn't. It took me years of being a system engineer to be able to just use it as a daily driver without significant pain every day.

For very narrow and specific cases, a very user-friendly distro may be better, but that's a call one can only make if they're intimately familiar with the needs of the user.

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.

Hah, going through my writings folder and oh boy, so much stuff I started then lost interest in.

Some of it dates back to 2010, according to the file last-modified dates.

...so much of this is going in the (digital) burn pile, fuck.
