All these brutalist web designs with scrolling marquees and wacky flashing upside down smiley faces are equally as overstimulating and triggering as the websites they are trying so desperately not to be like.

One of the most fascinating human mind limits to me is our inability to focus on two separate things at the same time. Interestingly, this limit is also present in computing where CPUs process a single piece of information at a time.

Even if you add more CPUs, they each can only process a single piece of information at a time, and synchronization between each other becomes its own separate task.

This tells me by analogy that human cooperation may be hard, but it's essential to progress on multiple fronts at the same time, even with the necessary synchronization overhead.

To survive, build networks, not bunkers.

Streaming television has taught me the hard way that "more" is not the answer.

Nobody outside the fields of mathematics, physics or engineering would ever hotly debate mathematics, physics or engineering at the dinner table.
But when it comes to psychology, sociology or linguistics, everyone is an expert all of a sudden. Even if they haven't taken a single class on the subject

I made a new little website / gemini capsule:

https://quaint.space
gemini://quaint.space

It's kind of like a non-interactive text adventure set in a small town. Every day it randomly generates changes to the town, so check back every once in a while to find new things. It's isn't super big right now, but I hope to add more places/things/people over time.

(feel free to boost)

job hunting (boosts welcome) 

idk if it's allowed here, but i'm currently on the hunt for a flexible part time job (ideally no more than 16 hours/week, and should be at least £10/hour, or around that much, no less than £9/hour) that can be done remotely/from home, within the UK timezone (if applicable).

i'm mainly looking for jobs that are either:
- tech support
- technical writing
- frontend web development
- editorial writing (i.e. writing for articles)

so if anyone can help me out with this, that'd be great

from an interesting article #amreading about The Potterization of Science Fiction: https://hugoclub.blogspot.com/2021/10/the-potterization-of-science-fiction.html

"One of the fundamentally troubling assumptions behind the born-great protagonist is the anti-democratic idea that the lives of some people simply matter more than the lives of other people. If we accept that Harry Potter is destined to be the only one who can do the thing that’s important, then why should we care about the life of Ritchie Coote? Likewise, if Aragorn is destined for the throne then we have to accept that all other Men of Gondor would be incapable of managing the kingdom (let alone Women of Gonder). There is a direct link between the idea that one person can be born great, with the ideas that underpin racism, classism, and sexism. See also: the equally flawed “great man” theory.

Just as troubling an assumption is the idea that greatness is unearned; those who are great have not thought about it, have not put in effort to attain greatness, have not practiced whatever inherent part of their nature makes for greatness. It wouldn’t matter if Húrin the Tall graduated at the top of his class in urban planning at the University of Dúnedain, he’d still be incapable of managing Minas Tirith, and would be doomed to repeat Denethor’s mistakes. This is an idea that breeds complacency as we are taught by the stories we consume that greatness is achievable only through parentage. That is, one’s efforts to improve their lot in life are largely irrelevant, as is the society that supports the achievement of greatness at all."

Figuring out how to plug into via Jack took me a few weeks but it really cleans up a few thing. I know can abandon a few finicky hacks. Take the time to dig into it if you need to, it is worth it. (Don’t worry. You will probably be faster than me.)
