Who painted pictures like this on rock walls in Norway 5000-8000 years ago?
Researchers are uncovering the mysteries of rock paintings millennia after they were created. More and more paintings are being discovered.
@signal9 hah! Been there before professionally, but come to think of it, it suits rather nicely indeed.
@judy absolutely, will do! I thought of one more question, something I really struggle with: how do you host a personal website?
I've seen so many stategies, and docker isn't really working out for me, so I'm wondering if I should struggle on, or try some kind of nginx/apache capistrano setup on a droplet. For one site at first, but I'd like to have the option to extend it to a few more.
@judy it helps a lot, thank you so much!
Eloquent Ruby is already in my list, but Design Patterns in Ruby looks awesome. Same for Growing Rails actually, so much appreciated!!
@judy ohno I won't treat you as I do StackOverflow 🤣
I've been thrown into the deep end at work with GraphQL and ElasticSearch, but I really like it. But it does mean SO is working overtime 🙂
Maybe one thing I would ask: as I've been downloading and buying a lot of ruby books, do you have any book you'd really recommend? Possibly one on pure ruby or a deep look at rails' inner workings?
Anyway, switched back to a Murakami book of short stories, always makes me feel right at home.
@jasmine (a belated) Welcome to Mastodon!! I'm also interested in philosophy and politics, also a programmer, so I'd enjoy following you! Sending you a request now 🤞 😃
@judy Welcome to mastodon! I've recently gotten into ruby professionally so I'm eager to follow you and learn something! :)
James Cameron on why T-1000 was a cop
From a 2010 book “The Futurist: The Life and Films of James Cameron” by Rebecca Keegan:
'"The Terminator films are not really about the human race getting killed of by future machines. They’re about us losing touch with our own humanity and becoming machines, which allows us to kill and brutalize each other,” he says. “Cops think all non-cops as less than they are, stupid, weak, and evil. They dehumanize the people they are sworn to protect and desensitize themselves in order to do that job.”'
@vindarel it really is. I had some notion of early history from Debt: The First 5000 Years but Dawn of Everything really turns all my notions upside down. I love when that happens :D
The name of the archaic "Neanderthal" human subspecies, which died out about 40000 years ago comes from the "new-human valley",
as the name of the valley Neandertal simply means "Neander Valley" and Neander was renamed hundreds of years ago after a priest that liked the place, whose ancestor had changed the family name from native German "Neumann" which means "new man" in English, according to the trend of their times to a Greek-Latinized "Neander" ("neo"=Latin "new", "anthropos"=Greek "human").
That the subspecies happened to be found in a valley that had that name is of course purely by coincidence,
but the very old humans are by thus commonly called "new-human valley archaic humans".
#Anarchism stands for the abolition of oppressive and exploitative social relations. It means the organiztion of an egaliterian, self-managed, and co-operative society.
