There are a LOT of good conference talks this year at . Like, seriously, I can't believe how many are so good.

I'm going to highlight a few in particular in this thread (if I don't highlight yours, it's just due to lack of time, I was seriously impressed by all the talks)

Hey Fediverse: What's good to watch on YouTube? Historically, I just use it for tutorials and podcasts. But I'm told there's music and full shows etc on it (I am trying premium). I just don't know how to cut through the crap interface to discover anything new.

I'll accept 20% "you tube sucks, don't use it, it's google" etc. in answers but I insist on at least 80% constructive answers 😁

fuck man is there anything better than being 10 years old and setting shit on fire? shout-out to the local youths.

I have too many tasks left and no energy to push myself to finish them. guess we'll see how much shit I get for it next monday at the office. wfh is so hard and lonely. I just want to hibernate for half a year or something. I'm so fucking done with all of it.

Playing Among Us has made me realize that I'm really bad at both lying and spotting lies.

The real story is that ‘developing’ nations have done remarkably better at fighting COVID-19 than the rich and white. The real story starts precisely where the western map ends. Here be dragons. We be dragons.

The real story is that places like Vietnam and Mongolia have completely kicked COVID-19’s ass. The real story is that places like Rwanda and Ghana have innovated and survived. There are countless stories like this — from Sri Lanka to Trinidad & Tobago, but you wouldn’t know because we’re not rich or white. But you should know. Because we’re right. This information could save your life.

(But please keep posting about a vaccine, eating like normal, and relying on your institutions to save you. It'll all work out for you I'm sure.)

Here's two pictures from my photography session in the foggy forest from earlier this week :) Didn't need to edit them much. #theWorkshop

“By gender freedom, I do not mean we all get to choose our gender. Rather, we get to make a political claim to live freely and without fear of discrimination and violence against the genders that we are. Many people who were assigned “female” at birth never felt at home with that assignment, and those people (including me) tell all of us something important about the constraints of traditional gender norms for many who fall outside its terms”

its getting colder and darker outside so it's time to bust out the Erwtensoep (thicc Dutch pea soup). It's so good.

It's really cool to find a streamer who enjoys the same little details as much as you do. It's these little details that make Super Mario Galaxy so amazing.

@cadadr Very much this.

Zettlekasten (or any effective notetaking system) is not about structuring your content so much as it is about enabling structure discovery.

As such, the absolute core functionality is enabling structure discovery. If it fails to serve this, it's broken. Frictions impeding this (or its precursors) must be reduced.

Incidentally, most of my criticisms of #Pocket boil down to the fact it hugely impedes structure disccovery.
