This image is actually a stack of 10 images, that's what it took to get to this level zoom from the 135mm lens on crop sensor raws.

It won't be cheap and it won't be easy, but people who seize the means of computation will succeed. Information doesn't have volition and it can't reflect about itself, but it does disperse in ways similar to a fluid. Information that humans store outside their brains is the cultural backup of our minds. I'm tempted to say it's a law of nature that we'll eventually see a million futures exploding in a million different directions. We're approaching critical mass at an accelerated rate.

phones, 2011: "How can we make phones comfortable and ergonomic to hold?

Maybe the reason everyone is monogamous is because polyamory sounds like a fucking spreadsheet

“'Power to the people' can only
be put into practice when the power exercised by social elites is
dissolved into the people. Each individual can then take control of
his daily life. If 'Power to the people' means nothing more than
power to the 'leaders' of the people, then the people remain an
undifferentiated, manipulatable mass, as powerless after the revolution as they were before. In the last analysis, the people can never have power until they disappear as a 'people.”
― Murray Bookchin
