Currently playing around with a tomato sauce that I want to let sit the rest of the night.

I've been cooking more these days and I'm particularly happy. I love to enter in this trance in which I'm just making a dish happen.

I have been following many of the larger web decentralization projects and I wanted to write down what Web 3.0 might look like.

Putting together my thoughts here without referring to specific underlying technologies. All the tech exists for what I write here, or it is coming online very shortly:

Wallets are going to be coming after the entire internet. They are the new browsers. The wallet wars will soon commence.

I made a new experimental app called Automadraw: draw and evolve your drawing using cellular automata on a pixel grid with two keyboard-controlled cursors.

I've begun transcribing the ship's logs of our passage from Japan to Canada, we'll release more daily. Be warned, some of this might be distressing to some people.

Found this really neat terminal dashboard visualizer thing. It has different graphs and charts and stuff that you can configure to show different things. Its as simple as specifying a few parameters and giving it a shell command in the yaml config file. This is just the kind of terminal dashboard I've been looking for.

Nearly every platform and service we use is a stack of hacks on top of hacks on top of hacks, and wearing a trenchcoat.

"Renunciation is realizing that our nostalgia for wanting to stay in a protected, limited, petty world is insane. Once you begin to get the feeling of how big the world is and how vast our potential for experiencing life is, then you really begin to understand renunciation."

Spanish has a lot more variation. Allow me to refer back to this old favourite of mine:

youtube.com/watch?v=eyGFz-zIjH

The reasons for the Spanish variation are political and cultural too. There isn't quite a culturally dominant medium to disseminate the Spanish language like Hollywood has been in English. The closest is perhaps something like Mexico's Televisa exporting some shows to the rest of Latin America, that to this day are still oft-quoted.

repeated emoticons like ":DDD" are comparable to 理義字 rigiji like 日 sun 昌 clear 晶 crystal, 弓 bow 弜 strong, 車 car 轟 noise/clamour etc.

in that the shapes that were originally pictographic drawings are abandoning the pictographic principle to allow an emphatic reduplication based on meaning (":))" is not a face with two mouths, like 昌 is no two suns).

written language is just an assortment of symbols that represent arbitrary mouth noises that individual cultures have collectively agreed upon the meanings of over the course of generations of use.

and that's pretty awesome, innt?

My Itch page makes me so happy, I’m so proud of this two games :)

Felt like a fraud for so long because I wasn’t doing “real games” and now it feels like I can call myself a game developer without feeling weird about it
