few things are as genuinely calming as sitting in front of a full-screened, dark terminal containing a personal project, with music in the background

related in spirit to @rostiger's sailing-inspired posts, i'm currently taking my second week of sailing courses! ⛵

during the week we'll be repeating the fundamentals and then moving onto sailing with a spinnaker :~

just contributed 15 bucks to @glyph's peachcloud project! peachcloud is building tools and interfaces for making use of raspberry pis in p2p contexts

"Scientists spent a decade intensively monitoring the impacts of a large government-funded experiment at Hillesden, a 1,000-hectare commercial arable farm in Buckinghamshire. (...) Numbers of some butterfly species including the gatekeeper and green-veined white doubled, and birds that usually feed on insects benefited from the shelter provided by hedges and grass margins, including the great tit, up 88%, and blue tit, up 73%. They also found that overall yields at Hillesden were maintained – and enhanced for some crops – despite the loss of agricultural land for habitat creation."

The science is in: permaculture works, it can feed us all and it helps the planet too.

Going to be in New York for the next month if any New Yorkers want to meet up!

I am speaking Sunday 31-07-20222 online 6:00 pm–6:30 pm (Central European time - I’m in Germany , I think it’s 12 on east coast?) at Narrascope about Fantasy Filing Systems: folder poetry, adventures in the shell, BashCrawl, pseudo-MUDs, games and stories inside dialog boxes and form-builders, etc. It will be streamed and also available as a video afterwards

Full schedule and info on the conference narrascope.org

kinda counter-intuitive but i could definitely see uxn working well in this environment haha

i would’ve never expected it, but coding on my phone via ssh and using vim works surprisingly well? modal editors, having been developed for printout-based viewing, seem to translate really well to mobile’s constrained input options

slow, of course, but engaging and oddly satisfying; Shelly on iOS is a legit, minimal ssh app :~

Two #PHD opportunities at Malmö University in Sweden. One in Media & Communication and one in Interaction Design

Great opportunity to develop your own research project in a interdisciplinary environment with good working conditions!

Merveilles's default theme is so nice.

Installing the WebApp looks & works wonderfully.
