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.
Writing > Computers, Internet >
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.
For the internet, esr calls them Load-Bearing Internet People.
A small trail from a resource reference in Dao De Jing which I followed for the fun of it.
Roleplaying, gamers (roleplayers) > Issues in GMing >
I came upon a note I wrote in 2006-03-05 or earlier.
I avoid roleplaying with women for concerns over chastity, atmosphere influences, favouritism and pathetic newbie girl roleplayers.
I thought a bit about it and I figured I'd write on it.. since I've changed, and circumstances have changed.
Though I only know him through Last Week Tonight, I love his personality and material.
Last Week Tonight is a political commentary Television show which posts some videos on YouTube. Some of its research and news material is quite impressive, and its comedic presentation makes it particularly entertaining.
He went completely fucking insane some time ago, and became part of the fake news / social justice propaganda network.
With a strong talent for ad-lib, inflammatory rhetoric and confrontation, Patrice O'Neal is (was) a hilariously wrong comedian. He is deceased.
Patrice is astoundingly hilarious, though all too often it's because he's so offensive. I'd like to say he's speaking his mind, but it's impossible to tell, because a comedian crafts a fictional personality to present comedic material, and his is fantastic. He comes off as refreshingly authentic.
He's been a guest for a bunch of radio shows, and he is worth listening to if you can stomach the awful hosts.
With a tenancy to dive into relationship territory, Patrice neither ejects nor leaves a skid mark trying to land. Instead, he explodes like a meteor, throwing up debris and setting everything on fire. He does not hold back.
All about working with people.
