@vilmibm oh hello there! 👋
Thinking about the CS academia stuff, I realized that most interest/research is toward helping us build bigger systems by either improving:
I feel really weird because neither of those things interest me. Software is eating the world already anyway.
My concern: software is the fastest growing store of "how to" knowledge on earth and is mostly inaccessible, not only to the general population but programmers too. 🤔
It's been a little bit hard to figure out how to explain that my on-and-off hobby project for the last 6 years (with a 4 year break) has been a Nintendo emulator in Common Lisp.
I think that's because the emulator isn't the thing it's the thing that leads to the thing.
The real goal is being able to play a ROM and answer questions to help a constraint solver construct a _model_ of the control/data flow of the game. I don't know if this is possible. To quote Zero Cool, "Fucked if I care, man."
Hi, I'm Brit. 31, cis/het white male, born into more privilege than even that descriptor signifies.
I write code for money but miss teaching.
Too much is important to me and I still don't know how to best honor myself.
I delight in looking at trees, watching dogs run, reading Milosz and Neruda.
I can soak in headphones for hours seeking beautiful sounds.
I instinctively distrust many social structures but I love people madly.
I'm anxious about change and always changing. <3

Debian 10.2 is out.
the pinephone looks cool:
what blobs does it require? in particular, will hardware accelerated graphics work without blobs? that is what usually kills my interest in these things.
programming languages personified; it's old but classic
"a lot of money to change the google results for Github ICE" probably sums this up.
Still, I have thoughts.
