As if I needed another reason to despise Slack. Using a user-agent whitelist is lazy, user-hostile, and toxic to the open web. https://social.literati.org/media/feJHk1aqzNxDgn-ODKk
Interessant und traurig: Why I don't use my real photo when messaging with customers on my website. https://www.kapwing.com/blog/why-i-dont-use-my-real-photo/
Me: Goddamn, why does my software suck? Why can't it just read and delete mail like a normal app? Why do I have to debug and fix basics still? Am I a terrible programmer?
Also me: OMG I can search half a million messages, find an important, personal message from 2002, and the latency on getting results back is mostly the network. I must be an awesome programmer!
Turns out, you can be both awesome and terrible at the same time.
Packaging all the dependencies in one environment is the first step and I think I'm nearly there.
Next step would be a service abstraction.
Goal is, that everyone can run it's own instance with a 10 lines config expression.

Today can be the day you grep through your favourite documentation for mentions of "simple" and "easy", and replace them.
They are useless and can be harmful. If you mean "uncomplicated" or "few steps" or "like most projects", say so. Reading that something is supposed to be "easy" doesn't help the people who know how to do it, and people who run into issues will be frustrated, and more hesitant to report their problem with a supposedly "easy" step.

What I'm thinking about in connection to this is the curriculum, where we're shifting from "how to get a job" to "how to start a start up". We're educating for precarity, not solidarity or social sustainability.
I'd love to know about examples of "how to start a coop" in mainstream curriculum. Do you know of anything like this?
(I do know about coop unis in the uk but I'm thinking about public higher ed.)
Thinking about social institutions that do and don't support coops, universities are missing.
At the moment we are obsessively developing entrepreneurship as a curriculum focus, and chanting "start ups, start ups, start ups", despite all that we know about what's broken in this model.
What if universities gave equal attention to how and why to form coops? What if that was a thing students learned?

when i look at a repeating pattern that fills my view completely, like wallpaper or something, my eyes frequently 'sync up' wrong, i.e. one ends up using a feature 1 or 2 repetitions to the left/right as a registration mark. so i kinda end up what amounts to a really shitty 3d magic-eye type effect
Luckily it turned out to be a feature instead of a bug, so I don't have to have to change the configuration of my mail client.
