Finally done with the conference and boy am I beat. Walking around New Orleans has really drained me down this week.

@msh airlines were fine in Denver, here's hoping the way home isn't bad 🀞🏻

bound for ! I'm really running the gamut on travel this year, guess I'm making up for lost years πŸ˜…

Finally named the boat. All credit goes to the 14 year old.

Oof, did some rote maintenance on open source projects tonight and I do miss programming just for fun. Maybe I can find a project in CHICKEN scheme that I'll have time to keep up on

Cops fight crime like how I maintain the terrible old proprietary software we run at work: barely any effort, only really acting when there's a major public disaster and even then still very slowly and begrudgingly, and whining about it the whole time

The fun at is over! Got some tourism in lined up, then I'm back home later tonight.

Glad to have met so many companies doing and autonomy! Also a lot of folks who've read the stuff I've posted on my employers blog... πŸ˜¬πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

bound today! Excited to go to ! I'm hoping that there'll be lots of cool papers and research there

@keturn So chat logs generally speaking aren't going to be as easy to view / lookup, but I mean, logs on any other service are kind of the same way? IRC usually can be logged pretty easily in most clients or by a bot.

As for reactji / other features, perhaps Matrix on its own is acceptable? Unlike Discord the protocol is federated and folks can sync their own histories as they need to? Sure, there's a "discoverability" problem but any chat system is going to have that - the difference with IRC at least is that there's no official "account making" process standing in the way.

But yeah, there's really no chat system that's going to slot in here. I'm not really sure what the closest replacement for BBS is in 2022, but maybe there's something like that out there? Discourse perhaps?

@keturn I personally prefer libera.chat & Matrix. I still love IRC, but connecting via the official Matrix integration is pretty much equivalent to discord in terms of experience.

@rin I will never apologize for the pile of books. They're my friends and I cannot abandon them 🀐

Libera is a year old. Thanks for supporting us, because it's been a pleasure supporting you.

Since we've been talking in this space about the Twitter/Musk deal today, I wanted to flag an interesting development on that front for you.

First, credit where it's due: I wouldn't have heard about this if it wasn't for the very good Opening Arguments podcast. If you're a layperson with any interest in the law at all, you should be listening to Opening Arguments. https://openargs.com/

So... (πŸ§΅β€‹)

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

we already invented an invisibinty cloak

it looks like this

Last day of ! Gotta say, I'm pretty tired from all the standing already, maybe join me in the weird hoop swings?
