For my first post on @jim's Reading Supply, I continue a conversation I had with him and @uonai about Instagram, why I've soured on it, and what I'd like to make to replace it:
Basic cracker recipe, because everyone should know how to make crackers from scratch.
When I think about what ties me to where I am right now, all that comes to mind is family and a stable internet connection. Pretty much all of the people I’m friends with are geographically dispersed, sometimes we meet up IRL for a few days then it’s back to voice chats and text boxes. Some may call that anti-social but I have more meaningful interactions online than with the people who don’t share my interests out here in rural nowhere.

> In 30 years someone's going to be writing a history article like "did you know about this social network that facilitated mass surveillance by authoritarian governments and stoked ethnic hatred, and users knew about it and didn't care?" and are you gonna be like "Yes, it was awful, when I found out I stopped using it and started working on platforms that empowered people" or are you gonna be like "yes but it was so helpful for staying in touch with friends"?

Constantly migrating between different computers, drifting between areas with and without internet makes this a reasonable challenge.
Added a graph of recent days' logs to chronologicon (also, check out how it looks with different terminal schemes)
yesterday I said I wanted to make a wiki of my brain, so I made one:
obviously there's a lot still to write.
— Eat varied foods, biodiversity in the diet means less monoculture in the fields.
— Pay more for foods grown or raised less intensively and with more care, eat less.
— Eat mostly plants, especially leaves. Cook, and if you can, plant a garden.
— Avoid food products with more than five ingredients.
— Don’t eat anything your great-great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
