'How do you build a culture
which sees the world as
a living sacred community
of which you are a part?'

β€” Paul Kingsnorth

Just discovered LessWrong and I think I'm going to be reading this site a lot in the near future. ...

Editing mini cookbook today, topped up all the cultures in the pantry, might try a fancy rustic bread recipe later, brush out some wool and listen to flash forward podcast.

This has been one of those weeks where I did way too much and ended up paying for it. -_-

- diy feta
- diy lactic acid pickles
- helped family shop (did all the heavy lifting)
- Foraging class from 6am to 3pm + mini hike
- Camping 101 class
- 3 separate mini hikes + foraging
- picnic
- started collecting wild yeast
- made dog food
- 2 livestreams
- Archived some book scans on foraging
- tended to the greenhouse and moved plants

That was Saturday through Today.

i recommend monthly reading list from Uneven Earth if you're interested in environmental issues, it always sources diversely and neatly categorizes the issues

Super excited to share Launchlet, my first open source project!

It's a javascript/css launcher that you can use as a bookmarklet, browser extension, or as a module in your own project.

The compose interface makes it easy to create your own. I used Svelte for the front-end programming and the almighty @remotestorage to save data in the browser and sync between devices – no database and works offline.

Not sure how people will react, hoping for the best πŸ™‚

In response to the President Trump (USA)'s executive order blocking all commercial and non-commercial property transactions with Venezuela, Adobe has begun cancelling accounts belonging to Venezuelans.

Regardless of this being a continued embargo, this is a lesson to be learned to never trust software which makes it obligatory to register an account in order to use the features of that software.

"Learning is hard work β€” but everything you learn is yours and will make subsequent learning easier."

Evil is not the attempt to eliminate the play of another according to published and accepted rules, but to eliminate the play of another regardless of the rules

β€” Finite and Infinite Games

Having the ability to choose one path over another. To say "this isn't right for me" and walk away.

It's either an act of strength (because you're willing to go back to nothing)

Or an act of privilege (because you have other options)

Immutability: The true constant is change. Mutation hides change. Hidden change manifests chaos. Therefore, the wise embrace history.

Separation: Logic is thought. Effects are action. Therefore the wise think before acting, and act only when the thinking is done.

Composition: All things in nature work in harmony. A tree cannot grow without water. A bird cannot fly without air. Therefore the wise mix ingredients together to make their soup taste better.
