rant about well-meaning "I don't see race" types 

literally some of the most insufferable people I've known have been the types to say they don't see race or class differences or disability whatever. I want you to look! I want you to look *hard* at it, at yourself, and the system you live in that gives you the privilege to say something like that.

I want you to look at the way you act around me versus the way you act around your straight or white friends, and challenge your belief that you don't treat me any different. I want you to look, reflect, and change for the better instead of be blind to the world

Is there a good foss map and navigation app for android? I'm so tired of constantly telling google where I am. Of course, with an android phone I guess there's no way of not telling google where I am.

mutuals, in that we have a mutual hatred of capitalism

I'll write an article about this someday, but yeah. Accepting and embracing incompleteness and imperfection, finding beauty in ageing, celebrating repairs, etc... It contrasts a lot with how our late stage capitalist world asks us to think and act. (2/2)

My mind keeps going back to how the japanese concept of wabi-sabi can be a great base to articulate a healthier, more reasonable and sustainable relationship to our world and ourselves. (1/2)

Fun fact: legendary microbiologist Carl Woese possessed a custom-labelled "Primordial Soup" can. The label was made in the late '80's/early 90's by another microbiologist, Jim Brown, then a postdoc at the University of Illinois. https://storied.illinois.edu/curiosities-series-2/

Brown later made an updated, high-res version: http://web.archive.org/web/20051117001714/http://www.mbio.ncsu.edu/jwb/PrimordialSoup.jpeg

"Just burn some more energy and you can live with global warming just fine" will be a super weird take until energy generation has been decarbonized

funny how mac os looks as bad as linux these days. what a mess. i think the only thing they really have over linux these days in terms of appearance is the preinstalled expensive fonts with names like 'Monotype Artisan Deluxe Demibold' instead of names like 'GNU Freedom RobotHuman Misc ProgrammerSans'
