2 strange dreams.
One with a poltergeist. So lifelike that I was convinced ghosts actually existed when I woke up. Secretly asking the ghost to make a sound if it really existed. Almost shat my pants when a sound came back.
Next dream was me endlessly wandering around a co-working space looking for my cubicle.
Hahahahahaha.... https://php.net/robots.txt has Asimov's laws of robots in it. What a fun day this is turning into.

A fun (art?) project that is building a network of solar-powered servers that work together to host a web site. Wherever currently has the most sun takes over the hosting.
Dunno how much of these things translate from art/fun to practical use, but good for raising questions and awareness about how we power our sites.
Would be interesting to combine Solar Protocol with distributed content on something like Hyperdrive or IPFS.
At their very simplest, anarchist beliefs turn on to two elementary assumptions.
