- Quiet but also nice :) Catching up with messages.
- flancia meet
- Yesterday we watched Demons in Paradise with AG -- about the civil war in Sri Lanka. Harrowing stuff.
- What is the name of that nice Python CLI library again?

- Saturday, 09/23/23 ** 09:03 All these review websites - anonymous notes - etc. I don't think it's really possible for writing to be unidentifiable, unless it's been tumbled through editors and AI, or at least I think so; most people tend to have a strong voice. At work, I can generally identify who on the (9 person team) has written a passage based on their writing style, formatting, and other little hints throughout - a quirk of poor punctuation, a common misspelling, a certain phrase of words tehy use often. ** 10:13 The morning is for getting ahead - the evening is for cleaning up.
I think I will shift my workout schedule to the morning. It feels 'active' - not like 'maintenance' - and the last two hours of my day should be spent cleaning and organizing. In a way, everything I do feels like organizing; the code, for example, already exists; I just need to arrange and compose it in a way that solved my problem.
Maybe my plants need watering. Maybe I can do that now.
I think I have to accept that creating mess during the day is okay, too - as long as it's taken care of by the end of the day (or the next morning). I deserve a fresh start.
Talk at work yesterday - "You have to have a plan for when you'll end, or you could just work forever". That's my problem - I don't define time or space for me to do particular things, so I don't do much of anything and none of my time is reserved for me to accomplish anything in particular.
This is part of my effort to aggressively calendar retroactively - to visualize time spent is to take control of it. ** 10:51
Coney Island -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xw68q0jipg -- maybe New York City is the center of the world -- or, at least, one of them. ** 12:30 I write more words at work than I code - if you count comments. I think this is the correct approach ** 12:48 Forgot how good the Framework feels. The Macbook is robust - engineered- a beautiful artifact, a design machine, complete for people to use.
My Framework - with two years of NixOS, a light metal frame, and a few dents under its belt - is charming by comparison. It's a machine built for hacking, that begs to be remade and recrafted and redone over and over again, for debugging and hacking all sorts of beautiful system utiliteis and projects. The machine encourages you to remake it, transform it. It can do anything - you just have to make it happen and write the code to do it. ** 16:05 How do I format these notes as 500 word essays?
Wondering how I can make a system to help myself do the same ** 17:06 Loving the way the ilcaffe lights shake and move a bit when someone leaves their seat in the back - a trace of them is left in their place, swaying, lingering, for fifteen or so minutes afterwards. ** 21:04 I missed two really awesome photos today. One - woman in party gear looking down at Slussen. Two - woman immaculately dressed, looking very professional, flipping beer can above her head 180 degrees and pouring into her mouth alone - through the subway system window in Odenplan.
First one I was too scared to take - I was worried about being confrontational. I would not have been.
Second one - just didn't have the camera ready. I was too overwhelmed by the process of getting off the train to make myself alert.
Now Im writing from Doom Emacs installed in termux on Android! Not got org-roam set up yet though, so cant create links properly. Bit of a downside of org-mode/org-roam to be honest, for digital gardens, that you cant just use straight wikilinks.
What is ecosocialism? The combination of socialist politics and environmental politics. It advocates for policies and programmes that promote planetary stability, social equity and agency and democracy.
- Ads says something in it along the lines of To be a 21st century socialist is to be an eco-socialist
The Nature of Technology. Mentioned in the podcast with W. Brian Arthur on complexity economics. Its a book of his. The combination of elements thing sounds not dissimilar to what Gordon Brander talks about in recent posts. (Concept design, Fragments: vertebrate technology)
- Ha, OK, I was reading it again and he quotes Arthur in that post. Fun when these links happen.
