Quarantine Fatigue • Excellent article about promoting risk reduction rather than an unrealistic goal of risk elimination. Explicit parallel to AIDS education https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/05/quarantine-fatigue-real-and-shaming-people-wont-help/611482/ #linkblog #aidshivcovid19coronavirusdiseasetootme
I feel like I am quoting Maciej Cegłowski's "The Website Obesity Crisis" every other week at this point, but it's such a super-condensed source of white-hot truth and insight that I don't feel bad:
"Let’s commit to the idea that as computers get faster, and as networks get faster, the web should also get faster."
This is the most obvious and natural idea in the world, but somehow it's a genuinely radical position. I think the battle is lost on the web, but if you start again and only put in what you need you just arrive by default at a situation of what feels like breakneck speed.
Android has netcat, can pipe files like other unix-like systems: toybox nc -lp 8080 </sdcard/file.txt
Laptop on same network reads it with: nc $yourphoneip 8080
Same for reverse transfers.
gender shit ~
had another impostor syndrome spasm of "what the fuck am I doing calling myself genderqueer I'm obviously just a cis woman faking it and I'm gonna regret this life phase in 10 years" instantly followed by "wow it felt viscerally wrong and uncomfortable to think 'I am a woman' uugghhhhhh"
Copyright must be abolished. The fact that anything created today will never enter the public domain within any of our livetimes proves that the system has failed. We have an obligation to exercise civil disobedience to protest the broken system. I will shed no tears for billionares caught up in the flack. They never shed a tear for the tens of thousands of people they screwed with expensive lawsuits, nor the billions they screwed out of their rightful inheritance of the collective works of humanity.
It's your obligation as a good citizen to pirate shit.
