present is a function that consumes a stream of future and outputs a stream of past

unfortunately most of us are stuck with the imperative implementation

So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.

How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me:

Wish me luck. More updates soon.

privacy is your local scope where you perform your local reasoning

maybe people who don't think privacy is important are okay with programming by only mutating global variables

Hi! You may most likely know me as co-editor of ActivityPub, the decentralized social network message which is more-than-likely how you're actually receiving this message!

Other things you may want to know:

- I'm a user freedom activist (free software, free culture)
- I post a lot of leftie politics stuff
- Expect lots of tech posts around lisp, decentralized network stuff, obscure-ish programming history

Oooooh dang I did good and married a DOCTOR

That is all to say... @mlemweb just passed her dissertation defense and is now DOCTOR Morgan Lemmer-Webber! CONGRATULATIONS MORGAN

That's DOCTOR Lemmer-Webber, thank you!

Just passed my dissertation defense!

Last night Mark Miller was describing the marshalling layer used currently by Agoric's captp implementation.

Me: "So you're laying down the marshall law?"
Mark: "Wow...! I can't believe I never thought of that one. Puns like that are precious."

@mlemweb @cwebber
Totally! I’m working through this kind of stuff with my therapist right now, and increasingly I’m finding the most important part of organizing for me is that I have to have it in front of my face. Apps on phones and computers are not at all useful for daily organizing because they get tucked away behind work.

@dorian @cwebber

I'm glad you're enjoying it! The hipster PDA is honestly the most dynamic and adaptable organizational system I've ever used!

@mlemweb @cwebber
Listening to your episode about organization and I’m loving it so much!!! Hipster PDA is my jam! I used it years ago but haven’t recently and you’ve helped me realize I need to pick it up again.

The pixels don't really match the grid as well as I'd hoped, but all-in-all not too bad for my second quilt ever, especially since I finished it in less than a week!

I made a quilt for our first baby nibling! Their nursery theme is based off of the Kirby video games

@freemo Yes, and in fact that happens on yet another layer below CapTP, the "netlayer" component

More or less, CapTP provides a secure distributed object system, where no more access than which has been intentionally handed out is possible. Sitting on top of a "netlayer" component, the abstractions for a secure networked communication system are given.

All in all, you can think of CapTP as a new abstraction layer win, akin to how TLS and TCP save devs time.
