I’m Jason, and this is my #introduction
I am a hacker, father, husband, filmmaker and kind-of musician. Politically I’m an anarchist and my pronouns are he/him.
I like making things and I love to see and talk to people about the things they make and do. I don’t have much artistic ability and as a result I deeply respect those who do.
I don’t understand competition, favor collaboration (even if I struggle doing it sometimes) and know humans can thrive without authority.
Greetings and salutations! This is your captain speaking.
In the following posts (the locals call them “toots”), I’ll give you a quick tour of the ships features. If you need more information or have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask.
You’ll notice a row of icons containing a house, a bell, three people, a globe and a magnifying glass. I’ll explain each of these in turn next.
After playing with Write Freely more I’m getting more serious about building-out a suite of federated software. Here’s the current list:
There may be more. I seem to remember a federated VR system but maybe I imagined that (or need to build it).
I’m thinking like “what if the second society was an actual society?”
I’ve been playing with a federated writing/blogging tool:
I’m considering adding this to the services provided here or perhaps under 2SOC.net.
I’m also toying with the idea of folding this site under 2SOC as well. I haven’t put too much thought into it yet but personally I’d like to see 2SOC re-expand into other (and more experimental) things, and I could also use fewer things to manage so consolidation might make my life easier.
@Supernova72 you are a saint. Your work with the ignorant on Facebook is commendable and I am in awe of your patience.
“ hope does not come from good news or from hiding emotions – but from community and action.”
This link is a pretty tough read, and it only scratches the surface of the topic, but ultimately the message is hopeful, and for me at least provides a way to reconcile the state of the observable situation with any hope for a better future state.
I’ve been looking at the last conversations I had with Joe and I can’t help but wonder if I had been more positive or at least poured less darkness into our discussions if it could have helped. I still don’t know exactly what happened to him but he was depressed and I don’t think talking to me helped.
Of course it’s too late to change that now, but I want to do better.
I took a stray cat in to the humane society, and called about him today. Turns out he was sick, and is feeling better now thanks to being brought in. If anyone needs a pick me up today. I certainly did. In other news the silly kitty I found outside and helped out that now lives with me has taken indoor catting to a pro level. Not only does he trip me, refuse to move if I'm setting down groceries, demand pets while I sleep, he also snores loudly while snoozing on the couch.
@JasonTiffany hope you are hanging in there brother.
I discovered a huge missing piece in my understanding of why I hate contemporary tech in this (sadly fractional) interview with Alan Kay.
The captain of this here vessel, at your service.
People who like to think about what they talk about.
