"Man," said the Ghost, "if man you be in heart, not adamant, forbear that wicked cant until you have discovered What the surplus is, and Where it is. Will you decide what men shall live, what men shall die? It may be, that in the sight of Heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like this poor man's child. Oh God! to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust!"

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Thank you, Earthlings," it said, "we can now reveal that when you played a computer game, it actually controlled our robots."
"Which game?"
"Mine sweeper."

I've been spending a lot of time today seeing on Google Maps how long it would take to walk across tiny countries.

For example, it takes about 2 hours to walk across Liechtenstein if you start in Buchs, Switzerland and end in Feldkirch, Austria. (You want to end in Austria because there's a Chinese restaurant right on the border. Or a place called "Snackman" if you're not feeling up for that.)

I need to set up a process for gathering and evaluating ongoing feedback/change requests from stakeholders. Any ideas about keywords to search or resources to check out? I am in training but I bet that those in UX or others who develop software/solutions would have ideas for me...

@strypey @thegibson “We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”

Why doesn't the PHQ-9 have a question like: "do you go in the basement to move laundry into the dryer and find that you didn't bring a basket for the dry clothes and just cry and then make a single egg for dinner and never go back to the laundry and have to rerun the wash cycle cause it stinks the next day?"

I am vaguely considering a "book club" where people get together with tea and cake and just read whatever damn books are on their reading pile rather than trying to keep up with each other.

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive and Neighbors for More Neighbors. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.

Recurring contributors: @hfrazey, @brennen@mastodon.social, @Jennybellium, @densetsu, @iangreenleaf, @britvulcan, @joeld, @yeahno, @paulference, @billmk, @brandon, @benjotron, and anonymous.
