The difficulty of getting a local development environment set up on an existing project (coming in as a new employee/contractor or as a contributor to something open source) is so extreme in most cases I see. This just can't be how things are done anymore.
Somebody needs to make an open source `stadia for software dev` before microsoft does and everybody inexplicably treats the closed source iteration of it as an open-source-friendly standard.
5 years in San Francisco and I never felt remotely like that. With Seoul it took less than 6 months over ~2 years
Just front-to-backed Wave Runner for the first time in a while and wow, absolutely nothing about the experience of listening to that album is the same as it was for me when it came out 5 years ago. What a bold, unique, avant garde, inventive, cheesy, fun, dense, crazy as all hell album. So many masterpiece moments that just didn't even register with me for years. Another one of those Nakata albums that's completely different from any of his others and completely unlike any other album ever.
Note - they send out a lot of these here. Bad air quality days are the most common reason for them. First time I got one a long time ago I freaked out, now I know better that they're quite common
Still, unsettling to get one and already know before you translate it that it's about something so serious.
I went out and stocked up on some food & water just in case. 50% of people had a mask on walking around, but restaurants were full of people eating out together despite the warnings & holiday

Fediverse in 2019 - Fediverse
The previous year for the Fedi reviewed.
#fediverse#federation#2019 #reviewAlso, welcome fediverse.party to #Feneas!🤗 https://friendica.feneas.org/display/76158462-145e-112e-0e2c-509586061147
Our tribal tendencies are so crazy... I don't follow or really care about Call of Duty esports in any way, this entire brand just recently came into existence, I'm sitting in Seoul halfway around the world, I won't watch this event, but found myself mindlessly watching this video and starting to swell with support like... TAKE IT TO EM RØKKR SHOW EM WHAT WE GOT https://twitter.com/ROKKR/status/1220452897038708742
Awesome though that Minneapolis is playing host to this event!
Now releasing: FediverseCast episode 4!
In this episode I talk about the time before I really got into the fediverse when I built a federated app architecture of my own & everything I learned doing so

This being the year of no-code hype that's basically all I see. Airtable is closed source sql. Webflow is closed source frontend + git. It's like we're going to completely transcend the need for something git-like before something built for humans ever replaces git
Tools as foundational as SQL and git are completely unusable to all but an insane few. Even those that use them use only a sliver of their functionality. The fact that these tools are so unquestioned as the defactos only underscores the unimaginable amount of money sitting there waiting to be made by replacing them with closed source software made unavoidable by network effects. Big tech is gonna do it or buy the ones that do so fast our heads will spin
Google is breaking sheets-as-a-db and an entire scene of indie makers is learning the golden rule:
*never build on someone else's platform*
Now releasing: FediverseCast episode 3!
In this episode I talk about how the Fediverse doesn't actually solve any of social media's problems... but how it might!
https://youtu.be/-E0RrVXy9Uw how did I never even pay attention to the themes of this album... Love that the perspective assumes the best about the listener, like he's saying if you care to listen to what I'm saying it's implied you believe in a positive sum world and that diversity = strength. That is assuming the "you" is the listener?
The album art alone should have clued me in what this album was getting at 😂
Lyrics aside I never realized what a fun arrangement this is either
(sadly, the commissioned song he produced for this video game tie-in is probably his blandest in a decade)
I love technology and music. Mostly splitting my time between Minnesota and Seoul at the moment. Professionally, I'm a web developer and I work remote.
