We’re acquainted with the wormhole phenomenon, but this… Is a remarkable piece of bio-electronic engineering by which I see much of the EM spectrum ranging from heat and infrared through radio waves, et cetera, and forgive me if I’ve said and listened to this a thousand times. This planet’s interior heat provides an abundance of geothermal energy. We need to neutralize the homing signal…

So on fediverse at the moment I guess we have multiple identities, multiple services + data stores.

One step could be one consolidated identity using multiple services and data stores.

Personally I like the sound of a generic AP server + data store, e.g. CommonsPub, to which other services authenticate as clients, and all my data is in one place.

You could host your own data store, or still have it live on a shared instance. It would be simple to migrate it elsewhere if instance goes kaput.

Watched Rams by Gary Hustwit from Gary Hustwit

Really nice documentary about Dieter Rams:

He was one of the first electronic product designers and was heavily involved in Braun’s designs in the 60s and 70s, supposedly a big influence on Jonathan Ive.

Nice soundtrack by Brian Eno too.

Liked IndieWebCamp, Berlin 2018
Last weekend I attended my very first IndieWebCamp in Berlin. I planned it very last minute and was lucky that flights were still at an acceptable price. I’ve been wanting to attend one for a while. I found out about the IndieWeb because somehow I stumbled upon a list of blogs that were created in...
Bookmarked How Circular is the Circular Economy? (LOW-TECH MAGAZINE)
The circular economy – the newest magical word in the sustainable development vocabulary – promises economic growth without destruction or waste. However, the concept only focuses on a small part of total resource use and does not take into account the laws of thermodynamics. Illustration: Diego Marmolejo. Introducing the Circular Economy The circular economy has become, for many governments, institutions, companies, and environmental organisations, one of the main components of a plan to lower carbon emissions. In the circular economy, resources would be continually re-used, meaning that there would be no more mining activity or waste production. The stress is on recycling, made possible by designing products so that they can easily be taken apart. Attention is also paid to...
