Problem: I can open browser #tabs much faster than I can close them. I feel bad about closing tabs I haven't read yet, but no compunctions when opening a dozen tabs from the interesting-looking links on a website.
This usually ends with me getting overwhelmed by the browser tabs+windows I have open and just declaring browser tab bankruptcy, almost daily.
There must be a better way...
Oh wow. So that really famous centralized vs decentralized vs distributed diagram that I quote above? Well, in one of the companion papers, Baran provides this iteration on it, which in my opinion is far superior and I'm going to start using in my presentations.
Anxious about climate change? You're not alone. We're compiling a list of climate change disaster-relief funds, and other climate crisis activism work that you can support. https://storyseedvault.com/2019/06/11/the-climate-emergency/
Not sure how I talked Philadelphia's Morris Animal Rescue into letting me name some of their kittens with a neural net. They did reject some names.
I worry sometimes that I am an ineffective activist, that the various causes I wish to advance would be better off with someone less socially awkward, more charming, competent, productive, reliable. I worry that doing my best may be worse than doing nothing. I worry that I might be repellent and drive people away.
But doing nothing is unconscionable.
All I can do is try to improve, practice communicating with people, practice completing tasks, and remember that nobody else is perfect either.
I'm a little concerned about them offering #charcoal toothpaste though, which seems like it might be #pseudoscience: https://www.prevention.com/beauty/a23470865/charcoal-toothpaste/
I didn't order the charcoal toothpaste, I went for the mint, but I'm worried that if they are pseudoscientific in one area they might employ pseudoscience elsewhere :/
Quick reminder that everyone with a stake in free and open source software should understand the four freedoms:
"Difficulty" as a person with ADD:
- Learning about obscure programming concepts by reading old papers: "This is fun!"
- Unearthing old peer-to-peer architecture stuff and documenting it: "It's tough but I like it!"
- Working on decentralized system and programming language design: "I could do it for days!"
- Submitting an invoice so I can get paid: "Oh my god this is the hardest task ever how could anyone ever do something so difficult"
