Asynchronous working seems to become less and less popular. Yesterday while on the train I edited a Numbers spreadsheet that was shared via iCloud, and I couldn't make changes while in dead spots. Now I'm trying to clean up my inbox, and while moving is queued, mailbox creation isn't. – I think developers should use their own products on the road more often.

Ich habe offenbar gerade in dem Zeitfenster, in der mein Rechner die Blautöne aus den Farben genommen hat, ein Telephonat geführt. Jetzt komme ich zurück und alles ist gelb.

the one thing i can honestly say i learnt thanks to my university studies that i dont think id have figured out elsewhere 

Ich bin so berühmt, mir schreiben schon wildfremde Leute per Mail, ob ich ihnen eine schicken kann. (Kann ich natürlich nicht.)

I think I'm going to try this Anki thing ( out for my theatre lines for this summer's play.

Anyway, I'd like to run a kernel written in a memory-safe language that I can also read and understand (personally I'd prefer Go because I'm good at it, and I haven't yet found a resource that made it easy for me to learn Rust, and my Haskell is very rusty (haha)). But I have no idea how it is be done and if it is at all practical (or if not, what's missing). Anyone?

I'm pondering finding funding for »let's throw everything over and write everything from scratch«. Starting with chip design, OS kernel, storage, tooling... up to GUIs for stationary and mobile devices.

I still couldn't find out why @tootapp says »detsoob« instead of »boosted« for the boosts of one person I follow. They don't look mirrored to me!

Ich sehe so oft unterwegs Konsumenten von »Bild«, digital oder als Pressezeugnis, und bräuchte wirklich einen hübschen, leicht verständlichen Flyer, der klarmacht, warum man das nicht lesen sollte.

Der Chef hat mir eine US-Tastatur hingelegt, nachdem er ein paar mal mit mir am Rechner war und gemerkt hat, daß ich das US-Layout benutze. :)

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?)

Wondering how much energy we would save if everything related to advertising would be turned off all at once…

Hat schon jemand den Wortwitz mit der Trinkhalle im Weltall gemacht? 

Technisch gesehen fahre ich heute ja nicht Zug, sondern Schub.

capitalism, consumerism, education 

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."
