I made my first firefox extension!

It adds a handy button to your toolbar for surfing sites on the webring.

You can install it from here: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

and you can read the source here: github.com/aadilayub/webring-e

Chronicle is another personal tool I created in an effort to better understand and know myself. It creates a timeline UI from text based data using @neauoire's tablatal format and parser.

This is what I use to listen to music every single day, it's light, resistant, repairable, standard, carries 64GB of music and will play music for nearly 100 hours.

I paid 16$ for it.

I've been asking myself why ive been spending all of this time developing and logging on this wiki.

I want nothing more than to be seen.

Yes, by others I guess, but much more importantly by myself.

I can only really guess at who or what I deeply am. My self understanding is a mystery to me that is worth pursuit.

Between the writing and the music, and the therapy, Im trying to arrange the facets of a mirror that can reflect all of me.

The Milky Seas Effect is an ocean phenomenon where huge patches of water glow blue, brightly enough to be seen from orbit. From the surface, the sea would glow from horizon to horizon for days.

It's called "milky" because old accounts describe it as white. It's actually blue, but human eyes aren't very good in low light.

It's probably caused by some kind of bioluminescent bacteria, but no one's sure exactly what kind. No known bacteria match what we see.

"Every aspect of your life is a choice. There are default choices -- you can choose to sleepwalk through your life, and accept the path that's been laid out for you. You can choose to accept the world as it is. But you don't have to. If there's something in the world that feels so wrong, and you have a vision for what a better world could be, you can find your guiding principle, and you can fight for a cause."

I'm taking a course on temporal design & critical time studies this semester and it's really interesting! It's about how social factors affect how we perceive, define & act on time, and how time is political, eg. how colonialism has imposed their time on indigenous cultures.

It's my first discussion-based class, so I'm looking forward to learning a lot!

Here's a sneak peek from the introduction of "Timing Canada: The Shifting Politics of Time in Canadian Literary Culture"

@neauoire I keep seeing this pattern, where solving simple personal problems is infinitely more satisfying than trying to solve big/global problems of many distant people.

Fixing something for myself or -- maybe even better -- helping || teaching something to a friend that helps them out, is the most satisfying thing.

You know how like half the point of hyperlinks was that you put them onto a word and then by clicking you can find out more about that word?

Why can you *still* not do that in so many places? Sure, with markdown and WYSIWYG editors it's usually possible, but it's strange that one of the first ideas of the web¹ is lost on so many popular platforms (here, twitter, fb, youtube descriptions & comments...)
