Pinned toot

The name is a combination of (knowledge) and (a measure for information), which are the two main concepts behind it's conception at aiming to condense knowledge.

I've had the rough idea for this project ever since I got into philosophy some 15 years ago. During my time studying physics at university the ideas manifested more and more, mainly because of frustration with rehashing the same concepts over and over in every textbook. Actual designing only started 2018

Interesting Fact of the Day:

Current climate change is happening at a pace 6.2 times faster than the climate change that resulted from the asteroid impact that killed the dinosaurs.

We have had 1.06 C change in about 150 years. The dinosaurs experienced a 4.5 degree change over 4,000 years. So for the dinosaurs it changed at a pace of 0.001125 C per year for us it has been about .007 degrees per year. So current climate change is happening 6.2x faster than it did during the extinction of the dinosaurs.

@ScottMortimer @rysiek The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus is my long standing example of how we failed to teach critical thinking. It emulates all the things that convince people these days: it has references, reports, activities, links, big names, and on and on. But you still have to know that there are no cephalopods in trees… zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/

another awesome video by , this time covering the functionality of bringing yet another explanation why 5G towers aren't dangerous. Not that any of the consipracy guys will be convinced by this. The core of the video is the technical background anyways.

The 5g conspiracy craziness are but the latest example showing that a civilization's technological progress is hard-limited at any given time by the quality of education a median member of the society has received.

The second Crust of Rust video is up! We went over how to implement the vec! macro, including how to get it to efficiently pre-allocate memory for the provided elements. Get it while it's hot! πŸ₯§ #rustlang youtu.be/q6paRBbLgNw

I'm going to call it "Crust of Rust", hoping that a name will make me do more of these (assuming y'all find this one useful). It fits well, since I'm covering the scarier "edges" that come up for more intermediate Rust users in bite-sized chunks πŸ₯§ If you have ideas for other Rust crusts, send them my way! Try to think of topics that could be covered in ~90m. I'll start curating a list of session topics, and hopefully I'll find the time to do another in not too long. In the meantime, stay safe!

The recording of my first #rustlang mini session is now up! We covered lifetime annotations through a real code example, and people seemed to follow along and understand why the lifetimes were needed and how they worked πŸŽ‰ Watch it at youtube.com/watch?v=rAl-9HwD85.

My #youtube channel is now now linked in my profile information for anyone who's interested in some (#metal / #blackmetal / #science / #technology / #engineering / #programming (#rustlang focused) / #absurd / #math ) playlists and channel recommendations

if I'll ever make original content it will most likely be on different channels if at all.

So the motivation purposes of this hashtag based blog haven't worked out that well in the last two months. The situation has a great deal to with it, as my current working environment isn't ideal due to various reasons. Hoping to move soon and get some proper equipment (eyeing for a notebook).

Until then I'll prioritize working on songs rather than code to keep my sanity. But it doesn't mean the development will halt completely.

Ya know how some of the less intelligent people on social media keep griping about how the death toll of COVID-19 is no worse than a normal flu... well next time show them this graph.

there is archive.org and no encryption in mastodon. how much do you want to know that mastodon is still a public utility rather than a safe place to exchange secret messages?

another one of my favorite channels shows that designing a for the current situation is not as straightforward as one might think

one of the most important things in the design is the prevention of barotrauma. If you're doing it only half right, the patient might still have a lot of additional pain when being treated with the do it yourself ventilators to the point where sedation is necessary
