video game violence in VR, except actually a really good deep dive 

An 8-bit approach to J.S. Bach

“It struck me that, at least in theory, organ pipes should generate quite primitive sound waves. If so, how come a church organ doesn't sound like a chip tune, which is also built up from simple waveforms? Well, actually it will, if you remove the church. And if you connect a Commodore 64 home computer to a loudspeaker in a large hall, it will sound like an organ.”

If you want the Linux-circa-2004 experience back, just try Linux on ARM!

* everything compiles slowly
* distro-hopping to find better hardware support
* oops, you need proprietary drivers for that
* forum posts hold the authoritative documentation *and* code for your distro


so let me see if I’ve got this straight: you’ve got the golden compass to find god, the subtle knife to kill god, and the amber spyglass to see god... and together they are the deathly hallows

anyway I have been thinking about this clearly, combination of, CWs get slapped on stuff for feed control not for well TWs

and, well, thinking about how I decide when to use CWs and why I feel entitled to refuse certain social norms on my own posts

you follow somebody on social media you get the firehose

it’s very personal and you can learn interesting things by having them just plopped in front of you

but it’s not really something that’s conducive to low-touch interaction with a lot of people

(thought: retweets considered harmful)

I kinda feel like we had a golden age of being social online with robust web bulletin boards and then social media clobbered it and maybe on some level we’re trying to rebuild that without sacrificing the dopamine hits and, I dunno

maybe we should have both

what they really work like UX-wise is boards on bulletin board software ala phpbb or vbulletin, but there’s no first-class support for that sort of thing so topic selection is flailing about understanding how other people have summarized their own posts

maybe this works a little better than twitter where there simply is no way to select for which topics you see but I dunno

fedi CWs are interesting in a way no outside analysis could tbh hope to capture

partially they don’t (reliably or always) function as CWs and taking that at face value will mislead - they’re summaries, which is interesting because that’s precisely the activitypub object attribute mastodon decided to use
