Exploring a mix of ideas, and waffling on a bunch. Maybe I'll come back and edit a bit every so often.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
I once learned the idea that if one does nothing to seek out news, the important things will find their way to you.
This was emailed, but is worth posting here.
Exploring some ideas.
Everything is frail to failure. Be it hardware, software, data, business relationships, or people, nothing is immortal and immutable.
Many things are immediately recognized; the hardware and software, but we fail to see people; the wetware. They represent the intellectual backbone of major projects, the "wet infrastructure" upon which our technology relies, and when they cannot contribute, their projects suffer and we suffer. Their influence isn't just notable, but critical.
What should an Install Guide accomplish?
I don't think a Devuan install guide should exist, and any interested people would be more helpful upstream.
Content platforms, funding systems and search engines can go insane with ideological bias, creating an extralegal layer oppressing content creators. Can a completely neutral platform, which stands wholly on legal ground and is detached from moral judgement, even exist?
This is a rambling thought experiment which thinks about a payment processor, crowdfunding or patronage platform..
As a user, I would be willing to have a tab in my browser perform computing such as crypto currency mining. I would be willing to do this in lieu advertising.
This is essentially a donation feature. While it wouldn't displace all forms of advertising, it would certainly be a good option for websites who want a direct conversion between visits and crypto currency.
I have a hypothesis I've been playing with that would say that snowflakes and the semi-autistic are new and not normal human variation.
Intelligence, understood as measured IQ, can be predicted by the IQ of the parents, but there's more to think about.
I prefer to think about "smart" as something like the nexus of IQ, success and even self-reported happiness.
I use a "death" model to organize my content.
Projects and individual items have a life cycle from birth and life, to death and interment. There is also well-defined horror-fantasy terminology for "undeath".
maybe more will be written, but this seems to be good for now.
