Hot take 

Also, if a company with "bank" or "investment" or "realty" or even just "firm" in their name wants you to consult, charge them 2x your normal rate. And if they have more than one of those, add 50% to your rate for each word.

Do y'all have any good e-reader to recommend?

I'm mostly ignorant of the e-reader world, I just know the brand names Kindle and Kobo.
Can you borrow ebooks from your local library? Can all e-reader do that or do you need something special?

Debate shit take 

Debate class does not exists in other countries, and (and least in France) debate is not to be won.
Actually trying to win a debate is seen as an hostile approach to conversation and a technique of the far-right and nazis

Debate shit take 

My shit take about "always trying to make online debate better" is that Americans go to school and have "debate class" that teaches debate as a thing and a competition.
This American tradition guides all the approches to "online debate" because tech is so US heavy and is the core of the problem.

looking for pen 

The pen arrived 😊

It's far lighter than I expected but the click is really satisfying!

For some reason this pen from an Austin based company is shipping from the Netherlands. The package may take a while.

I've been eyeing this one studioneat.com/products/markon but the fact that it's perfectly round seems like a major problem!

Hey Camp,

Do you have very-good-pen to recommend? Ideally a metal body, rechargeable, ball-point.

I'd like to buy myself a nice, pleasing pen as a treat.

Covid19 vaccine availability 

Patent-free vaccine released to the world--interesting how mainstream media didn't cover this.

It'd be fun to just start calling fediverse stuff Web6, implying we're three steps ahead of the losers pumping up Web3 scams.

"And by now, if you run your own servers, if because you say, hey, I want to have some control over what I do, even then people will tell you, you’re crazy, because you should give your service to Amazon or Azure, and they will run them for you."

journaling questions 

@streetwanderer I've started using DayOne over the weekend. It seems ok to do what I want.
I just really wish it had like a graph representation of a mood evolution or something like that.

journaling questions 

I'm looking into journaling to try to have something I can look back to when I have trouble remembering how things I enjoy make me feel. Let's be honest I won't be doing it if it's not on my phone/ipad.

Do you have any recommendations of journaling app, with a powerful tagging feature? Maybe with daily prompt & mood tracker too. Is DayOne still the best app?

Just noticed that Ever Globe, an identical sister ship to Ever Given, is about to head through the same stretch of canal going the other way and I am praying for them to do the funniest thing of all time

Passover joke, birdsite 

"Happy Passover to everyone, and especially to the Ever Given as it waits to be freed from Egypt."

Any single entity that thinks they can protect a huge pile of valuable data forever is as naive as I once was.

We must stop taking the easy road or picking things based only on their UX.
