I should start a band named Copyright Claim and start making copyright claims against people making copyright claims

Uuuugh!

When it comes to videoconferencing name recognition seems to be worth a lot. Jitsi Meet has such a gorgeous experience, just click the link and you're on the call. No account required at all! But others will say "let's just use Google Meet" or "let's just use Zoom".

What do we need to do?????

More kaleidoscope shader experiments. Still not finished, but fun nevertheless! (NOTE: EPILEPSY WARNING!)

Of course, I think I fall prey to normalcy bias myself sometimes. How nice would it be to hold a genuine belief that things will be all right? I feel myself seduced into that way of thinking more often than I'd like to admit.

Anyway, it occurred to me that the people around me who hate Trump as much as I do still seem to be falling prey to a normalcy bias. They keep assuming that things will continue as they have for the last few decades. I believe that's utterly false. Trump, climate change, COVID-19, and a host of other global disasters are going to change the world for a long, long time, if not forever. I wish more people were responding in the style of Extinction Rebellion.

I re-learned about the normalcy bias today. It's a bias in which people tend to assume that things will continue to be normal, even in disastrous circumstances. This bias causes many preventable deaths during disasters because people fail to come to grips with the fact that shit's going down and don't respond to dangers accordingly. (1/2)

As thankful as I am for my child's teachers, it's painful to hear them talk about computer concepts. ("If you click on the 'x' at the top of your window, it'll 'x' you out.")
