Some you might have wondered where I was going with my questions yesterday about the web browsers on e-readers.

I was trying to work out how many people either currently use them, or would be open to using them.

It's for this new side project: https://eink.link

"scarcity" right here

My fav Bowie clip ever is him talking about how the Art establishment co-opts particular voices out of a fertile art movement to kill off that movement by creating singular voices to perpetuate the idea of Art as rare commodity by geniuses rather than something within all people

It’s very funny to me that over the past ~15 years, internet libertarianism has moved from “copyright is obsolete, information wants to be free” to recreating copyright from first principles, except the copyright registry sets the planet on fire.

Most of us have been trained from birth to expect concepts to be framed in the form of a "product". So when things like objects, software or hobbies fail to fit into tidy marketing-defined categories, they are often met with derision or even hostility.

How long have you been using your current daily use smartphone? What model is it? How did you manage to keep it going? What repairs did it need? Boosts appreciated!

Vous vous souvenez peut-être du documentaire , rapidement culte il y a quatre ans et réalisé comme chacun des films du réalisateur uniquement par des footages très divers et une voix off. On peut discuter les thèses avancées, mais c'est au moins intéressant dans les rapports entre images, réel, mythe et fiction.
Un nouveau documentaire de est sorti il y a une dizaine de jours (et c’est au moins aussi bien qu’une série de la BBC). "'Can't Get You Out of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World' is a six-part BBC documentary television series [...] It attempts to explain how " has arrived at where it is today by tracing various topics such as, 'the strange roots of modern , the history of , and , [and] the history of '."
Je n'ai pas encore tout vu mais c'est déjà super.

It seems to me that we aren't hearing about the "Computing within Limits" discourse as much as we should. Even I wasn't aware of this until recently, even though much of their research strongly resonates with my own ideas about the ecology of computing ("permacomputing", "digital degrowth" etc). Sadly, many of their past papers barely scratch the surface of their respective topics. Nevertheless, I've been planning to participate in their next virtual workshop. https://computingwithinlimits.org/ #permacomputing #computingwithinlimits *LIMITS 2021 -- Workshop on Computing within Limits* computingwithinlimits.org https://computingwithinlimits.org/2021/

If you stick a stock of liquor in your locker,
it is slick to stick a lock upon your stock.
Or some joker who is slicker,
will trick you of your liquor,
if you fail to lock your liquor with a lock.

@alcinnz @loke i would argue though, more broadly, that the entire concept of an “app” is an unfortunate evolutionary dead end. in the sense that as long as we think the business of writing software is the business of writing “apps” it stops us from doing much much more interesting things.
