"As Hayek wrote, "The more men know, the smaller the share of all that knowledge becomes that any one mind can absorb. The more civilized we become, the more relatively ignorant must each individual be of the facts on which the working of civilization depends."


George Will "The Conservative Sensibility" with EconTalk host Russ Roberts

"Fortunately--yes, fortunately--this is getting more true by the day, the hour, the minute. As humanity's stock of knowledge grows, so, too, does the amount that, theoretically, that can be known but that, practically, cannot be known." (2/3)

"Hayek was enthusiastic about markets, but not because of utopian expectations. He was enthusiast because markets comport with what he called the Tragic View of the human condition. Human beings are limited in what they can know about their situation, and governments composed of human beings are limited in their comprehension of society's complexities. The simple, indisputable truth is that everyone knows nothing about almost everything." (1/2)

I'd like to mention that *even though* I'm busy with work tasks and multiple conversations, I *still* found time to make my desktop unbootable.

Some of us are just real good multitaskers.

i don't think i'm a bad person, in the moral wrongdoing sense, but i do think i'm a bad person in the way that, say, a toaster that only toasts one side of your bread and then causes an electrical fire is a bad toaster

I am willing to pay cold, hard, FIAT cash to someone willing and able to port raw.githubusercontent.com/sive

to golang (that compiles/works on mips64 as a single, static binary -- if that matters. which it probably will)

how much? YOU TELL ME (and let me know why you're a great fit for this task). I am willing and able to pay a premium because this is something far more useful to me in two weeks than two months.

boosts very much appreciated.

This video makes me cry every time. Empathy. Awareness.

... simultaneously, I continue to struggle with David's suicide.
