It’s very funny to me that over the past ~15 years, internet libertarianism has moved from “copyright is obsolete, information wants to be free” to recreating copyright from first principles, except the copyright registry sets the planet on fire.

A podcast my kids like just sent an email with this link teaching them about... SMART goals:

first world problems, glasses 

My nose REALLY hurts all day because the pads on my glasses have gone missing.

I went to the glasses place/eye doctor and they had to order new ones (didn't have any in stock, they aren't a standard design).

"Joplin is a free, open source note taking and to-do application, which can handle a large number of notes organised into notebooks. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified either from the applications directly or from your own text editor. The notes are in Markdown format."

subtooting, race in media 

This podcast was mentioned in a management communication channel at work today, specifically about one episode as helpful on a thing (being vague b/c details don't matter).

Looking at the homepage with the default "show recent" filter I notice EVERY SINGLE ONE of the interviews is with a white dude.

Not a good look.

Rob Zombie's Food Blog 

More Cumin Than Cumin

I find it telling that so many of the images that come up when searching "zoom background" are idealize vacation places (beaches, mountains, etc).

(Yes, sadly searching for "zoom background" will get you the most/best hits vs "big blue button" or "google meet" or "jitsi".)
