My honorific titles + scout promise 

I'm proud to be my family's unmarried not-mother woman-child; the first of my name to post-grad; the eldest daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter of divorced/widow women-clan.

*scout sign*
On my honor, I promise to live my last year as a 20-something like is the end of the world (because it is...), nonetheless will continue to be child(husband)less because I'm the only child I can handle right now (and most likely 4ever).

So how did we get from the gleaming promise of the digital age as imagined in the 70s to the harsh cyberpunk reality of the 20s?

Centralization, rent seeking, planned obsolescence, surveillance, advertising, and copyright.

How do we move forward?

Re-decentralization, a rejection of the profit motive, building for the future/to be repaired, building for privacy, rejecting advertising, and embracing Free software.

I think growing up third world gives you some sensibilities that are hard to convey to people who grew up first world.

Like you can discuss it in the abstract, and they'll nod and understand; but the emotional weight of it doesn't carry.

tired: "good timezone" (can't talk about your own time of day so make it milquetoast; sounds vaguely dystopian)

wired: "good morning" (now you know i am having a morning, or i want to wish you a morning. also time is fake anyway, so you're never wrong)

inspired: "good time zone" (the zone where the good times happen, now we are partying, put on this fun hat)

Ableism and intelligence 

@Irina I could go on and on, but I suppose my point is that 'intelligence' isn't exactly bad—a society definitely benefits from having people who are good at math, or science, or engineering, or medicine, or whatever else you'd classify as 'intelligence based fields'—but it isn't the only attribute a good society needs, and is no more important than things like kindness, or emotional empathy, or artistic creativity.

Ableism and intelligence 

@Irina A lot of people say things like, “there are different types of intelligence,” and that's a good starting point I guess, but I'd go a step farther and say that intelligence is a vague and useless concept. What's considered 'intelligent' varies from culture to culture, environment to environment.
