how is there still not an app that shows me, "anything that is open right now, the hour 3am, which is totally a reasonable hour to be up."

I'm serious about the Austria thing. It's been on my mind for the last two years. Not just when I'm drinking.

I got 99 bottles but a beer on the wall ain't one

Today was the last day of my dream job that slowly turned into a nightmare. I'm just so... empty.

On the plus side of not having come up for air from work for the last two months, I didn't miss any episodes of Rick & Morty Season 3.

From the Semver 2.0 FAQ:

>> Incompatible changes should not be introduced lightly to software that has a lot of dependent code.

Incorrect. It is better to release incompatible changes as soon as possible, to give people the most time to upgrade. Smaller releases mean smaller upgrade efforts.

Otherwise, this is why we have a Python 2.7.13.

I'm thinking of sticking a vestigial "1." on the front of my Semver version numbers just to avoid complaints about version number churn. Moving from v1.10.0 to v2.0.0 just because you removed a never-used, broken function freaks people out, but moving from v1.1.10.0 to v1.2.0.0 is exactly the same thing, but doesn't freak people out.

I guess we could call it:


I'm disappointed in Mozilla for dumping and running on Shumway, because now Homestar Runner can't be preserved in its full glory. YouTube videos don't do it justice.

I will probably say more in both 140 -char and 500-char format after we finish this two-week engagement. I still believe in Colossians 3:23, even if I don't necessarily believe in the Bible that much anymore. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart..." There's no point in committing to doing a half-assed job. Either do your best or quit immediately.

He convinced me to join on the premise that it would be a mutually beneficial arrangement. They'd get VR in their portfolio and I'd get a marketing and sales team.

After a while, it was just a slog of whatever-strikes-the-CEOs-fancy-this-week. Never any time to make anything good. But he also wanted to blame us for not finishing anything.

I don't think it was malicious. He just doesn't know how to manage or compartmentalize his emotions.

But that doesn't mean I have to stay.

I feel like I can talk here without fear of reprisal.

I'm leaving my startup. It was dead 3 months ago, if I'm completely honest with myself. But, I said I'd give it a year. And now, things are nowhere near what I envisioned. No money. No work-life balance. No passion project. What's the point?

What's particular frustrating is the CEO admitted he hadn't really tried. I think he thought he was turning a phrase at the time, but it was telling. I put in everything and he just didn't back it up.

- It'll never work. What's the business model?

- Why isn't it written in Haskell/Node/Clojure/Scala?

- SemWeb urgh

- W3C is an obsolete organisation.

- Facebook and Twitter will never switch to this, it's dead in the water.

- It's not P2P.

- It's not E2E.

- It's not green.

- The font is stupid.


- Stallman eats feet.

- Blockchain

- Steem

- So, nobody has figured out a business model still?

- Doug Engelbart did this in the 70s.

Anyone have any documentation on federated messaging infrastructures? I like Mastadon, but I hate Ruby on Rails.

I really hate this thing where "not knowing stuff" is kind of the worst thing that someone can admit in tech-world. This is why so many people struggle to learn things, are afraid to ask questions,...

All these "everyone knows this!"-guys and their not very funny "jokes" are just so not useful or helpful. Especially in spaces that are MEANT for learning things!

I've started to have loud discussions about politics and race in public places.

For far too long, we've had this notion that polite conversation does not involve politics. But this has the effect that the voice of prejudice is the loudest, thereby over-representing itself in the crowd. It becomes tacit approval.

It's long past time for being polite about civil rights. People need daily reminders from within their communities. That Racist Drunk can't be the most visible person in the crowd.

Just scrape in a few indications of sticks and twigs and other little things in there. People will think you spend hours doing this.
