"A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence."

(no longer tagging DiCo)

It's not a fundamentally new approach. was debated back inthe 90s when e-mail was the hot shit.

I feel like a lot of people (e. g. @digitalcourage) could have done this better.

It's fairly easy to build.

And DiCo could build it without bullshit lingo like:

Dear I don't care about "being on a roll".
Don't make careers into an endless optimization game.

Optimizing your career results in
- more money
- unfulfilled
- feeling of not being enough
- sadness
- perhaps coworkers you dislike

Ultimative goal is to escape desire, escape shame of capitalism and live the high-status life of having no need for status.

No seriously.
"The status of no status" is this stance of "Yeah I don't need a phone my agent handles that for me" or "Yeah I really don't need this fridge I live in a van by the river and own myself"

And for further context: I want to gift my sister books for her birthday. She reads via .

I always pay full price for gifts because g2a/b-ok seem sort of ill-spirited.
Ofc I would never pay full price for a book I read for myself. Information wants to be free lol

Right now I am reading pirated epub and when I like it then I buy and donate it.

It's... not really the best(?)

My hope (illusion) is that someone else shall find this brand-new book in the community library and will buy more books of the same author / recommend it / talk fondly about it / etc.

Publishers feel like the landlords of publishing. They gatekeep and profit from it. Yikes.

Many authors don't have a donate button

Sometimes I feel like an Fediverse-Nationalist.

Twitter culture is toxic.

Yeah that sounds like my grandma about muslims.

I really enjoy and his well-thought views.

i. e. he says everyone is an artist and capitalism holds us back. Schools make us submissive and other things young-us would have appreciated.
Him having these opinions and being considered a successful publishing icon really is a breath of fresh air.

I think a lot of people think there's a way to consider Inception with logic. That's not how Christopher Nolan makes movies.
It's grand and weird.
You feel... uneasy.
Things one does not understand.
Am I in a dream? Now?
That's the point.
It's illogical by design to leave us touched and slightly confused.

I disliked

Perhaps I didn't get the point?
What was the message of the movie?
Greed destroys morals?
Cocaine prices too cheap?

I liked the "made it without a scratch" scene. The timing was genius.

It feels like a powertrip for what people assume to be wealth.
"When I am wealthy I will constantly do drugs and pay women"?
Plot made no sense.
No likable characters.

Years ago I watched S1E1+S1E2 of .
It has morals.
And uh... less horrible characters.

The pilot characters are godawful.

Still didn't like it and never archived my goal of becoming a brony.

Watched The S1E1

poor Pam.
workplace abuse isn't fun
She deserves a HR talk, financial reimbursement for the harassment done by this pretentious dude (parkour meme dude) and moved to a better team.

Just move Mr. Chill and Mr. OCD away from each other if they hate each other so much.

i don't think i will continue watching
