Hi! I'm JC. I'm an opensource programmer in Durham, NC (in the states) working for Canonical (oddly, for them, all my code lately has been closed source 🙁)
About 10 years ago I helped start a hackerspace, but only in the last year or so have I been actually doing things there.
Doing woodworking, programming, hardware hacking (rpi, arduino), and whatever else can help me build stuff that's useful or fun.
Clearly this place has corrupted my view of colors. I blame the town 😆
I think full black background and white font may be too high contrast.
The discussion around reading queues and digesting information is really interesting. It makes me wish there were a queue-based browser: no tabs, one window, if you want to look at something but not lose your current place you can only push it onto the queue for reading later. Ideally it would integrate a way to capture reference material easily, perhaps as a PDF/text snippet/web archive.
It turns out if you spend several hours asking the internet "What Is Kubernetes?" at some point you will stand and walk away from your computer in frustration and then all at once catch the holy ghost and fall to the ground overcome with understanding. You aren't who you were before. You are new. As you pull your body up to standing, your lips spill over with praise and a new question for the spirit,
"Yo, but then what is Kafka?"

We can teach you stuffs. I'd particularly love to bring more black or brown women into the mix. Come throuuuuugh!
@neauoire capitalism will commodify aesthetics until the day it dies, but retrofetishism becomes retrofetishism when it becomes a market object, not when you use an old computer you've got around. in using it (and in narrativising its use), the old computer may even gain market value where there was none, and then you are left holding an elitist object. but you still have not bought a new computer, or even an old new computer. and that is a structural, material thing and that has meaning
This is an awesome idea for AR. I love "magic mirror" as an interface idea instead of cyberpunkish glasses. http://interconnected.org/home/2020/09/02/ar_and_magic_mirrors
Also, the notion that an AR device thus becomes an *actually* social experience is both very cool and invites further thinking about hardware aspects that can encourage genuine social interaction; it's not just about services after all.
This [Google's new web standard] threatens to change the web from a hyperlinked collection of resources to opaque all-or-nothing ‘blobs’ (like PDFs or SWFs).
great resource for ebooks, improving the formatting of many books from project gutenberg
