This was my first week trying the keto diet. I'm doing this not to lose weight but to see if helps me with psoriasis. So far it seems to have a positive effect so I will continue for at least 2 more weeks but I find it impressive how fast it made me lose 2kg and reduce my body fat by 0.3%
@qsl0 because I see people thinking of you as an extremist or weird just because you don’t follow “normal” social trends. And in some cases that can really shut you off from a social circle even if they do care about you. It doesn’t mean you cannot interact with society at all but it does mean you get rejected to one degree or another. At the same time also because you’re making a decision to be less of a part of that social norm, you’re by definition departing from it to a certain degree.
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?
@celia I’ve been doing Ruby (not so much Rails) for the past 8 years without any major changes. There are always new things to learn like with every other technology but the core concepts are still the same. During all these time I’ve also been recruiting and I never manage to find enough good candidates so I’d say it’s also a good choice for having a stable job
@markosaric definitely the kind of people I don’t want to use products from ... I don’t like companies that see resources as unlimited as much as I don’t like being the product ... I’m very happy with plausible :)
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.
