My contribution to :

Working on getting the snap updated for the upcoming @inkscape release. If you've got a moment to test it I'd appreciate it. You can switch using this command:

Rethink the procedural scripts you go through in your own head, every time you interact with Discourse-heavy Social Media.

Drawing theme idea: FFZ daily abstracts.

[Not saying I'm gonna start, but just throwing it out there.]

Destroy everything.

Destroy everything.

Destroy everything.

Nevermind merely tarring feathering & quartering everyone and everything involved with Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle and Twitter.

Outer Range (2022) was fun. I wouldn't be too upset if there won't be a 2nd season I guess, but it does end in a bit too dangly of a cliffhanger for me to be completely comfortable with it.

"My existence needs no justification."
"True."

This is a really good piece on "Web3" and I'm not saying that because Gilad Edelman let me rant at him for hours as part of his research. It also feels like the first *WiReD* article I've read in Wired for years: wired.com/story/web3-paradise-
