late #introduction 

I still owe a proper .
I'm married, have children and live in rural Germany. I work in academia somewhere between programming, engineering and mathematics, but don't feel like an academic because I like to get my hands dirty.
Stuff I love to talk about:
โ€ข privacy and cryptography
โ€ข typography
โ€ข functional design
โ€ข the relation between technology and society
โ€ข mechanical linkages
โ€ข ecology and sustainability
โ€ข retro technology
โ€ข electronics design
โ€ข systems theory

You always wanted to know how the complex exponential function actually works?
Did you know that there is a relation between the exponential function and the trigonometric functions?

The palaces of today are built upon the ruins of tomorrow.

Today is Earth Overshoot Day.

Today, we used up all the resources which Earth can produce this year. The resources of Earth, used after this day, are unsustainable.

Today is only 64% of the way through the year.

We need to fix this.

This is the best playground graffiti I have ever seen

Chickenshit Minimalism: the illusion of simplicity backed by megabytes of cruft

Such a perfect term, adding to personal lexicon.

"A federated, decentralized system of free associations ... seems to be the appropriate form of social organization for an advanced technological society in which humans do not have to be forced into the position of tools, of cogs in the machine."

CHANGE MY MIND

Earth has blue skies and red sunsets. Mars has red skies and blue sunsets.

The sky on Earth is blue because gas molecules reflect blue light. Earth sunsets look red because all the blue light has already been filtered out.

The sky on Mars is red because dust particles reflect red light. Martian sunsets look blue because all the red light has already been filtered out.

Two planets. Opposite skies.

Hi! I'm new here. I was hoping to write something worthwhile for #introduction but there's too much other stuff on my mind and I'm not used to microblogging. This gemlog post from yesterday should tell something about me, though. gemini://hannuhartikainen.fi/twinlog/2020-07-29_towards-generalism.gemini

We're happy to finally announce EDeA, a hub to share and integrate your Open Hardware sub-circuits for KiCad: blog.edea.dev/introduction/

Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks!

@marsue @mattskala @Shufei @xj9 @rysiek @tomasino Hey, friends! This wonderful long chain finally culminated in an even longer gemlog/phlog post from me on sustainable computing. It is only the first of more to come! I invite you all to join in on the conversation. See:

There is a kind of irony in a hacker conference site being MiTM'd and not accessible via Tor browser.

I guess that in 2020, among numerous other disasters, this is what things have come to.

Inside this sick foundation
We've had the realization
Inside this sick foundation
We've had the revelation

Fuck all borders
And fuck all boundaries
Fuck all flags
And fuck nationalities

You've gotta give us a chance before we reach a
System meltdown, meltdown, meltdown
