South Korea is planning Linux migration as Windows 7 support ends.
The interior ministry will begin test-running Linux on its PCs. if no issues arise, Linux systems will be introduced more widely within the government.
They don't mention any specific distro such as Ubuntu, yet in future "hope to avoid building reliance on a single OS" which the case is now with Win7.
Linux ecosystem is flexible / adaptive.

I’m completely horrified at the idea that this thing might just straight-up not work when I start testing it

Imagining myself getting a booth at a trade show, and when people ask me why I’ve put so much effort into making my sequencer user-serviceable, I’ll be able to say “Our company anticipates that there will be a prolonged global economic and ecological collapse in the medium-term”
Very interested in using magic as a way of cementing metaphors, but I always fall into this hole of taking the rules of the magic too seriously until it's no longer just a symbol, it's its own thing, it diverges from the subject.
Not sure if this just means I shouldn't use metaphor (metaphors are usually unnecessary, obfuscatory, or flawed), or if I have to control the story so that it doesn't go to places where the metaphor breaks, or if I'm using the wrong metaphors
here's a playlist with all of the performances from the merveilles meetup in tokyo :~

Exerpt From a removed feature spec:
"They are the identifiers which a person can only plausibly earn about thirty of in the course of their life. They are the qualities that separate us, that must separate us, the chasms that cannot ever be filled, they are the names of the peaks of our cleft species, the tribes, the professions, the rarely endowed gnoses"
Oh shit I just realised the reason the three year old in my tribe calls all media "teak" is probably drawing from the word "teat" and that is slightly disturbing. I thought they'd just attached a random sound to a meaningful conceptual category that hadn't been well named for them, as any well-raised culture-creator would, but it's really about the compulsive pursuit of constant entertainment, the phone and its media has been casted as a kind of teat, a teat that the zoomer might never outgrow.
There was always a period of crushing tedium, during production.
Sometimes it feels like it might all be made meaningful in retrospect, every moment of idle curiosity, consumption, every moment spent being lost, craving, every little thing turning out to be a crucial preparation leading up to a single grand purpose. I'll listen to that feeling, but I can't yet believe it.
Phrase your political ideology in the most ridiculous possible way to first bait the social capital mills into making fun of it and advertising it for you and, second, to provoke the development of a sneer-penetrating intersubjectivity as people look through the veneer and find sense, and are emboldened to look for sense in other ridiculous-sounding things as well, and third, to repel the people who will never develop that intersubjectivity
It's better not to think of it as human.
