I feel like I'm old enough to stop writing "Hello World" programs.

Will switch to "Bye World" which seems much more appropriate.

Had an interesting talk this week. Seems that neolithic man was destroying his environment before civilization set in.

Hunting for some books on the topic. Please let me know if you have any .

Just a friendly reminder that in response to criticism about their frequent outages, #github deicded to hide the timeline view on their status page. That's the kind of "transparency" you are supporting when pushing your open code to their closed servers.

So you've heard about these "anarchist jurisdictions", and you know it is a joke, meaningless usage of the word Anarchism as a pejorative much the same way these TV dictators froth at the mouth at the mere mention of Communism.

Many people who assume it to be synonymous with chaos and mindless acts of destruction, or maybe just a general air of anti-authoritarianism will skim past this headline and ones like it in the future, but Anarchism is not these things, it is a different way of looking at the world entirely.

If you're curious about what anarchism actually is, consider reading this FAQ to get started with the general principles and some history: theanarchistlibrary.org/librar

Share this around with your friends in case they are similarly unfamiliar and are also a bit curious what all this fear-mongering fuss is about!

Like so many old songs, it is impossible to know exactly what story the lyrics tell. We know that "the Vengabus is coming", but as to whether people would welcome or dread it's arrival, we can only guess. It's inhabitants "like to party", yet we may never know their true nature.

"No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well...maybe chalk it up to forced consciousness expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten."

So the company that owns the databases I don't use and the language I avoid now owns the social platform I never bothered joining.

That fits.
