A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.

I've admired Linux over the years, but have only just moved my main box over.

My distros:
Desktop: Mint 19 Cinnamon
Laptop: Mint 18 MATE
Old Laptop: Bodhi 4

Previously bewitched by OpenSUSE, Peppermint, Porteus, Lubuntu, Linux Lite.

Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable computing all figure into my love for Linux.

Anyone amongst my followers/fediversians into Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, #dcss?

I’m afraid I’ve become… something of a fan, and I just can not be doing with discords.

Interesting part of #smallnet. You can exercise your thoughts on how much is better or worse than #gemini, #gopher:

My proclivity to bottom post quoted & curated plain text to people seems to not only mess with their formatting but also inspire them to come up with novel ways of replying back to me. Using CAPS or colours or strangely interleaving their words around mine using multi-line gaps or symbols!

If we could've knocked top posting chain forwarding HTML mail on the head, keeping mail simple, logical & a considered curated conversational experience for everyone involved.

Watching "La Revolution" on the is like being enthused and drawn between two namely and their upcoming

I'm loving it.

Also back playing Greedfall because of it. Eagerly awaiting Steelrising (French Revolution with clockwork automata).

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

Yesterday, I published “The different kinds of notes”

Which would be the post where I outline my general theory of notetaking, based on the research I’ve been doing, for all to disagree with 🙂

🇬🇧Me and 44 MEPs call on the British gov to stop the extradition of Julian Assange, the US gov to close the charges against him & to release him now! Too long have these proceedings threatened pluralism, freedom of the press, expression and information!

weary giants of flesh and steel

"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."

from A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace.

it is suggested reading.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future
