If the only factor that kept you from kernel dev is the fact that Linus isn't a very agreeable person, and you now believe that once a community becomes "super inclusive" and "non toxic" you will get involved - you won't.

These are all feelgood excuses to make you feel like you're actually doing something and that there's a reason why you're cocooning yourself from potential failures and learning experience, also making others responsible for processing your own emotions.

if a "hostile environment" keeps you out of kernel development, and by "hostile environment" you mean there are people who would just say things the way they are without being polite, but not actually attacking anyone, and you're not used to being wrong or fighting your way through, then the problem is on you as an individual to grow thicker skin and do the things you enjoy regardless, not on the "community" to bring in identity politics

Sometimes I think that we should stop watching Hollywood & Netflix series and all of that because it projects certain (read: US-specific) morals onto us even if we recognize that and feel like we're unaffected.

Similar with other media.

Culture is not an adornment, nor is it meant to be useful. Culture is a way towards a freedom worth having.

Today I went to a castle and criticised the decoration.

femdom: wanting to be dominated by a female

I've had a recording of rain and windchimes playing in the background for a few hours now.

Very cyber.

One should, perhaps, aim at growth that encompasses several domains of competence. The loss of favourable circumstances in one domain should not mean complete disintegration. Competence in one or few domains is resilience, while competence across an extended set of games is antifragility.

For growth to occur, a certain level of stress and adversity is an indispensable requirement. An excessive amount of stress will crush the organism before it marshals the necessary resources to respond to a challenge. But when an organism voluntarily takes on a challenge [eustress, positive stress] that is adequate to its capabilities, it will grow and increase in vitality, as well as in its confidence to respond adequately to his environment [self-efficacy].

This is a temperature map of the Cosmic Microwave Background as measured by the Planck satellite. The temperature difference from the coldest to the warmest part is 1 mK. This minute difference in temperature during the Big Bang eventually allowed galaxies to form.

Ah yes, the four alchemical elements:

Today, I had the chance to share a good drink and a good meal with two friends. I count my blessings, for I am alive, healthy, and loved.

D.T. Suzuki once remarked that enlightenment is like everyday consciousness but two inches above the ground.

For me, it is still half a bottle of wine later. Fair enough.
