Personally I'm pretty ambivalent toward AMP. On paper, it is just "the web," and based on statements from its fiercest advocates at Google, they're really trying to save the web from itself. But I dunno – if the web "wins" by becoming something that it's not, is that really a victory? Something to puzzle over.
Reading the details of the election lawsuits filed so far reminds me of the sovereign citizen conspiracy theory and the “paper terrorism” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_terrorism) tactic some have used to harass courts. The fringe is the party now. I hope there are consequences for these bad faith actions.
I wrote a little love letter to GarageBand. Playing with that has been a fun anxiety-reducing activity: https://www.onfocus.com/2020/11/7945/coping-with-garageband

Realizing that the new Google icons are so terrible because the color patterns act like dazzle camouflage making it hard to see the shapes: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazzle_camouflage
Overheard my kids' take on some classic rock today: - Freebird is too long (“This song is ten minutes?”), too slow (“We’re one minute in and no singing yet?”) - Sweet Child O’ Mine was a fav. (“Ooh, I like this one.” at guitar intro.) - Too many guitar solos overall. Tracked forward at solo a few times. - Laughed at The Police’s repetitive outro in Walking On The Moon. (Not into the groove I guess.) Kids!
