obvious hot take, meta 

btw, if i didn't make this clear enough: if you do not think otherkin or furries or queer people are valid, if you don't think that people have a right to self-authorship and insist that all we can ever be is one kind of thing, then you are not my comrade.

it's your self, play with it and hack on it as much as you want. dress it up in high ceremony or ritual, or turn it off from time to time. you don't owe it to anyone else to be or not be a certain way.

hmm

i think i'm going to end up playing the rest of Control off of livestream

otherwise i'll never pick it up again just from the activation energy

in a very real sense, we think rf engineering is easier to understand than software.

there are far fewer degrees of abstraction stacked together, and the hard bits are in principle possible to fully model and design around.

maybe this is an opinion from ignorance and we don't even know the half of it

a thought to all those cool yet unknown people with a surprising amount of skill and talent

how many of them are people who are starting over from who they were, and doing it right this time? not making the same mistakes this time?

i've been there.

whoa wait holy shit

mother 3 came out on 4/20???

i did not know that

in what ways are computers bad because the system they are made in is bad, and what ways are computer bad because they're a reflection of a complex domain we have trouble handling?

there are aspects of the suck that we recognize in other really complex things

trans plural furry people have, on some level, an intuitive grasp on chaos magic or the potential to really Know it.

taking agency over one's reality and narrative, and changing it for the better, is what it is about!

“How Permissive Parenting Can Be a Tool of Oppression”; cw abuse, antiBlackness/white fragility 

“[Permissive parenting] can be devastating—and even deadly—when we view it from a social justice standpoint. Overlooking harmful behavior can create individuals who dominate and violate boundaries. Indulging and making allowances for our child’s every whim ignores how those freedoms may infringe upon others. Authoritarianism is not the only way we teach children to become oppressors. Permissiveness can be just as effective because it allows bad behavior to go unchecked.

[...]

Focusing on the freedom of the individual without regard to the social implications is myopic and irresponsible. It ignores the inequalities embedded into our systems where certain individuals (usually the rich, white, heterosexual male ones) are afforded opportunities and compassion while others are not. Laissez-faire parenting leads to laissez-faire politics where protecting personal rights is deemed more important than considering what’s best for the whole community and our shared life together.”

Examples are given, including that of white people who want endless emotional labor and forgiveness for themselves from Black people but resort to white tears when asked to reciprocate.

If anyone is wondering what I've been up to, I've spent the last 3 weeks staring at this extract from a 1982 interview of Michel Foucault and steadily losing my fucking mind

no company actually has the resources that it valuation reflects because stock price isn't a measure of assets, its a measure of how many rich people think it's going to be worth more later

if a company with a billion dollar valuation decides its going to solve homelessness it's very quickly going to have fuck-all in terms of capital and it won't be able to do much at all

hence, we can't expect companies even with the best possible intentions to be able to solve any real human problems in a market economy

at that point now where i'm grasping for some way to really get across what i mean.

how do i share what i see? how i see the world? that synthesis of so many articles, papers, books, experiments, feelings, results???

this is too big to explain and it feels so Important

definitely wanna figure out what new haircut to get, colors, new and better glasses...
