Doing live streams can feel the worst, you give so much energy and then at the end there's silence and you're on your own and have no idea what really just happened.
If you want to make someone happy send them a message to say you liked their live stream

The computer as symbolic sewer :www_server:

‘Study an information system and neglect its standards, wires, and settings, and you
miss equally essential aspects of aesthetics, justice and change. Perhaps if we stopped
thinking of computers as information highways and began to think of them more
modestly as symbolic sewers, this realm would open up a bit.’

From: Susan Leigh Star, The Ethnography of Infrastructure, 1999.

for a show and tell kind of thing today I undusted publishorperish.pro/ which surprisingly still works! (had zero time for maintenance) and found some cool/weird zines being made in the last year :unwanted_dolphin:

I just found a pretty interesting looking PDF library for :
borbpdf.com/

It has both read and write capabilities. Might be a good one for some of you 'zine makers and computational publishers out there.

I hate when I'm too tired to do anything else, and I start to dreamscrolling

thinking of releasing this very report as an NFT and get :hacker_r: :hacker_i: :hacker_c: :hacker_h:

@neauoire you're right but let's give them the benefit of the beta :)

last bit of the report: Jon Gold made more of 300$ with this post about his renewed optimism for tech gold.mirror.xyz/6ZUtkEg7kR2IM5

I must admit that it is more than I've generally been paid for my writing 😥

so, there is an option that allows you to turn a piece of writing into an NFT. Now, I don't think that there is anything bad in monetizing the writing and I don't know enough about the environmental impact of it. At a gut feeling level, what would stop me from doing it is adding to the self-promotional NFT noise that is currently all over birdsite…

btw, this is the first non-crypto related writing I could find published via Mirror

Show thread

is the main reason to publish there to directly monetize the writing or am i missing the big picture?

"Mirror is the next big change in the long history of symbolic communication. Through a decentralized, user-owned, crypto-based network, Mirror’s publishing platform revolutionizes the way we express, share and monetize our thoughts."

quite an ambitious pitch

Anyone got any opinion on mirror.xyz ? Slick editor and site, crypto stuff, decentralization. What do I make of it?
