@neauoire this is perhaps the single greatest thing I’ve read all week

@RL_Dane stick around for the mandatory symbolics, genera and oberon screenshots.

@neauoire The way your stuff is layed out kind of feels like a movie screenshot.

@lanodan I don't clear the framebuffer on slide-change, it gives it a kind of scrapbooking feel.

@neauoire Yeah, that's a pretty neat effect, not sure if I would like to actually have that here though

@lanodan it only fits because the topic of my talk is garbage computing.

@neauoire @lanodan oh shit a cardiac! i have one of those (wait did i already tell people that?)
anyway it would be cool to have this slideshow

@shitpostalotl @lanodan I don't remember you saying you had one! Those are awesome, I've made myself a copy from one of the PDF files out there.

@neauoire @lanodan Love that final slide. Echoes what the Swedish Minister for Communications said in 1996.

The reporter and headliner summarized it as "The Internet is a mayfly", but what she really said was "just sitting around and surfing on the net takes a lot of time [ . . . ] maybe it'll pass and then over time people's use will be more specialized".

Today's doomscrolling means even her expanded original quote was wrong, people really do waste a lot of time reading nothing special and just clicking around.

@neauoire o I saw this ad recently while looking back at PowerPC history, 90s Apple really had a 90s marketing department :blobcatderpy:

@neauoire alright, how many goddamn slides does this talk have? you've posted too many :P

@detondev @neauoire I was going to say I assumed merveilles.town/@neauoire/1092… would be all of them, but I don't see Absolute Power in there, so I guess my assumption was wrong.

@neauoire can't wait for your talk, will it be streamed right away or made available elsewhere?

@brin @bd I'm not sure, but you can watch the whole conf in real time. It's 40$ I think for the virtual pass, and it goes to helping this event to remain sponsorfree.
