An ever-changing list of books I want to read, those I'm currently reading and those I've already read, starting from this year:

Hola! I'm Jere, an engineering student from Argentina. I'm trying to lead a da Vincian life, focusing on art & science. Right now I'm going through a phase focused mostly on learning, so my ready-to-share output is fairly low. That should change as time passes.

Things I'm learning: engineering, programming, physics, jazz piano, martial arts, philosophy, literature.

Thanks for having me!

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

My personal site is at it's absolute peak right now. I can only make it worse.

I need a temporary naming scheme for new projects that helps me remember what they're about until I can come up with a good name.

How do you name new projects?

Jekyll needs to install 39 gems (without counting jekyll itself) to be able to serve a site. Guess what's getting replaced next week?

@lrhodes Large-scale engagement isn't an _exchange_ so much as a set of mutual public performances.

The relationship of audience-to-performer is *parasocial*, as Tom Scott (among others) notes ( The _audience_ feels a close bond, the _pereformer_ has no reciprocal sense.

Topology: point, pair, chain, ring, tree, star, mesh, multi-hub? At large scale, multi-hub seems to emerge, at smaller scales, others can exist. These invoke different behaviours.

two weeks into journaling with a basic text file:

wrote ~3500 words, reformulated goals, mineralized new habits, discovered patterns between sleep / food / work / mind, achieved a more grounded sense of self

In case anyone else wants to try, the bin files can be found here:

I just tried those and they work. I didn't manage to install flasher on arch though, had to do it from elementary

Do you guys know of any community focused on hacking old hardware? Running linux on odd architectures, reverse engineering old phones' OSs and that kind of stuff

If I'm able to flash it, I might be able to achieve a pleasing distraction-free setup

This phone's UI/UX was better eight years ago than Android's is today

Found an old Nokia N9 laying around and it somewhat works. It's got such a nice build and form factor! I'll try to get a proper linux distro running on it and see if I can make into something useful.

Most of the apps and services I use can be replaced by a text editor and some scripts. I think it's time to get a server.

What does the Laplace Transform really tell us? A visual explanation

Wish I had found this video earlier, it's amazingly well explained!

Quick list of energy usage of video-game systems (using manufacturer provided ratings)

- Use as few deps as possible.
- Use the base language and its built in tooling. (If it doesn't ship with solid tooling maybe look for a new language)
- If you use a dep make sure it is heavily used and by the influential people in the language, this will make sure it exists forever.

It's been a fun 4 and a half months using elementaryOS, but today I've managed to fix my archlinux config and i3 is calling me again

My goals for 2020 are:
- intent
- focus
- creation
