Heute dachte ich mir einmal, diese eine kleine Aufgabe brauche ich ja nicht zu automatisieren. Jetzt bin ich auf dem Heimweg, vier Stunden später als geplant.

Lukewarm take: Tracking on websites is just another form of stalking. (Which is usually considered a bad thing. How did all those trackers convince people otherwise?)

ÖBB-Zug nach Hause. Recht leckeres Abendessen im Bordrestaurant, kontaktlos bezahlt, kurz nach der Darmstadt schon satt und zufrieden.

I have been completely removed from Facebook for a full year. It has been the best year in recent memory. OBSERVATIONS:

1) I'm still "connected" to current events. I'm just not bombarded with a thousand "rage-bait" rants about it.

2) I'm still connected with everyone that matters. We've shared the responsibility of staying in touch. Sometimes it's on me to reach out, sometimes it's on them. The people who haven't kept up with me, were just a relationship of ceremony and convenience.

3) I'm substantially less depressed. Surprising no one, I guess. It didn't cure depression, but it alleviated that which it brought: A lot.

4) I'm still super social online. I have community here and a few other places. We do things together, and don't just try to whip ourselves into a fury.

5) I've gained a meaningful perspective: *MY* perspective. Getting away from the manipulative pieces of those social media sites has given me enough clarity to be, well... "me."


Ich freue mich, daß es einige Shared-Tische gibt. Nur Strom wär dort noch toll. :)

Erstmal frühstücken. Dann komme ich!

Aus irgendeinem Grund war ich der Meinung, die Unterkunft für den schon ab gestern gebucht zu haben. Als ich festgestellt habe, daß dem nicht so ist, entschieden wir spontan, erst heute früh zu fahren. Mithin sind wir nun unterwegs.

Ich bin mittlerweile – von Frankfurt aus zweimal umgestiegen und einen unbegründet abgesagten Regio später – im tiefsten Edgeland unterwegs. Hach, Weihnachten!

When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

gender is a scam invented by bathroom companies in the 1960's in order to sell more bathrooms

So, Office 365 adds 15 KB headers to e-mails? I care more about 15 MB websites.

Mitreisender Mensch liest ein Kamera-Magazin. Große Werbeanzeige auf der Rückseite: »SPIEGELLOS NEU DEFINIERT«. Frage mich jetzt, welche unterschiedlichen Definitionen von »spiegellos« es geben könnte.

So I just added a rel="me" link to my profile. And pronouns, while I was at it. (Am I doing this right? Should I add »cis«?)

Anything else worth adding there?

Underworld's »Always Loved A Film« gets slightly slower at around four minutes in, and it makes me cringe every time.
