2nd week on . This one was a bit harder to follow. Between cravings and a box of chocolates that we received as a gift, I had a few slips

I gained 0.5kg but reduced my body fat by 0.7%. Last time I had this body fat % was 6 years ago! 🙀

With regards to , it's hard to tell how much it helps because there are so many factors that can trigger it but overall I feel healthier and I think that's what matters in the long run.

Going for week 3 💪

The idea of the commons and the future of capitalism by Yochai Benkler


Personal sites are like digital gardens with their own flora and fauna, tended with love and care, ever-growing and lush. These places usually have bridges to other gardens that have their own diverse ecosystems.

I used to love following links and ending up in beautiful, unique gardens.

“This means that the industry is designing systems and services for ordinary people. The focus is on applications and devices, not on infrastructure and architecture, the domain of systems research.
The cause is largely marketing, the result a proliferation of incompatible devices. You can't make money on software, only hardware, so design a niche gimmick, not a Big New Idea.
Programmability -- once the Big Idea in computing -- has fallen by the wayside.”
Rob Pike (2000)

Today I figured out that my growing interest for minimalism could be a coping mechanism for the material culture we live in. The hard part is that we’re constantly bombarded to keep buying, so it’s also common to find myself wanting something else that I don’t need or thinking that some of this consumerism is “needed” for progress. I wonder if we actually become minimalists in such a society without becoming hermits or pariahs?

There should be some rule that every day with good weather is automatically a holiday

When asked about fears of automation in 1969, Arthur C. Clarke famously said that we shouldn't worry about automation: "the goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play." I have never seen his answer quoted in full.

Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.

Google has suspended Element (@matrix) from the Play Store for "Sexual Content and Profanity". Basically same story as with Subway Tooter a while back. Element is to Matrix as Chrome is to the web. Curiously, Chrome is still on the Play Store.
