<< The rest of the country knows George Floyd from several minutes of cell phone footage captured during his final hours. But in Houston’s Third Ward, they know Floyd for how he lived for decades—a mentor to a generation of young men and a “person of peace” ushering ministries into the area. >>

Time to finally announce the big project I've been working on for the past several weeks - Sector Disk!

Sector Disk is a platform where users can own the individual, physical sectors on a 3.5" 1.44MB disk and write whatever they want to to them for people to see! :p It's like a message board on a floppy disk!

I'm officially accepting public signups starting now and accounts will officially go live starting TOMORROW @ midnight May 30th (UTC)

Please join! :D

This graph is amazing. It shows that measuring #SARSCoV2 levels in municipal sewage almost perfectly predicts forthcoming #COVID19 cases with a full week's notice (R=0.994). It's one of several discoveries in this new study from @Yale: medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/20. C-19 is #InThePoop

Recently the .org domain was almost sold to a private equity firm.

Internet heavyweights, like the head of Wikimedia, fought to have the domain owned as a instead.

The Mediocre Programmer

This book is about helping you along on the journey of being a mediocre programmer. Together we'll uncover some of common misconceptions we have about programming, failure, and growth and come to understand that the act of programming and development is something we undertake each day and improve in small ways. It's these small changes that over time transform us from being mediocre programmers into better programmers.

I've been on the fediverse since 2010 

The Inkscape team kindly agreed to answer a bunch of my questions that you probably also want to know answers to: if the team still markets it as an SVG editor (yes and no), what their outlook for the development of the SVG specification is (seems cautious), whether they have plans for GUI work and future use of GPU (they do), whether they still plan paid development (undecided), and more.

Have any makers out there used a laser cutting service? If so, were you happy with results and cost? I'm shopping around and have looked into #Ponoko and #Sculpteo so far. I have no experience with any of them and would like advice from a veteran laser service user.

Feel free to boost.

The real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months

theguardian.com/books/2020/may

A reader comment worth noting:

"‘Lord of flies’ has direct link w Garret Hardin’s ’Tragedy of Commons’, Ayn Rand individualism. 6 Tongan boys demonstrated Elinor Ostrom‘s ‘Management of the Commons’ in which she debunked Hardin’s malign rhetoric. Too bad Ostrom (Nobel ‘09) is not basis of Economics courses"
