#mindmap #mindmapping

and most of all it means working on ourselves, making our personalities mirror our politics

Everyone is making a coronazine. Me too.

I can’t draw, my penmanship is awful.

I forgot I ordered this print a while back, it came in the mail yesterday and when I opened it this afternoon I started ugly laughing. I can't get a frame for it right now, so it's attached to the sleeve it came in and propped on the shelf near my record player. "Everything Is Fine", indeed.

The past is a fiction. Your mind constructs it like a tool, a shifting structure where the contours of time are refracted and skewed. The mind is always entering the eternal present, equipping and amending the circumstances granted by past selves. The past is a fiction. The future is a myth. There is only now. Do you understand?

Construct the circumstances you will inherit. Stand together with all your selves.

Damn folks, it seems like we're heading into a time of deep social isolation and fear. If only we had a robust network of friends across the globe with whom we can distract ourselves and enjoy sparkling conversation and offer support in a trying time. It would be even better if it were functionally resilient by virtue of not relying on any centralized infrastructure, and were free from fearmongering advertisements.
A guy can dream, I guess!

IPv6 is just climate change for networking nerds

Almost two years ago I sat at the same bar in Hanoi drinking cold Hanoi beers. Amazing times. If you have a choice, take a path and then go left or right. Maybe like what Edward abbey said,

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

Don’t look back. We’re not going that way.

Welcome to 2020; where the facial-recognition dystopia fails because everyone wears masks to ward off a proto-apocalyptic virus.
