Welp, gotta build custom todo app, I don't want to go back to org-mode and task warrior has poor cli ux.

Problems we are having with #Signal:
* It is and will remain centralized (clear strategy of *not* federating servers)
* It requires strong identifiers/selectors (phone#) to use
* Author disallows distribution by anyone but Google, although free/libre
* It keeps pushing away verification of fingerprint in interface
* It relies on Google+Amazon infrastructure
* Its funding is shady (OTF = Radio Free Asia = USG)

= clearly unethical choices, unjustifiable by accessibility or technological reasons.

I ported messy odt document to pandoc markdown. It took about 30 minutes and it looks fantastic.

Wise words on technology creep from a former coworker:

"But again, be forewarned. We were told this same thing with the advent of word processors, and in the end, we didn’t go home early because we got our work done. Instead we output more letters."

I feel urge to write stuff in lisp :D I'll probably do some small project in Racket or start learning Common Lisp

I used to think there is no point in learning modal text editor unless you work with highly structured text (programming, configs).

I changed my mind.

I usually use Kakoune (vim like editor). I have to edit some prose in Libre Office. I can't convert it to plain text, I have to keep formatting. I hate every second of this. Modal or bust!

Just got my diploma. So I'm officially „master of fine arts” yay :)

I enjoyed my time at uni. It was a burden sometimes but overall It was amazing time.

I'v been using Ubunutu 18.04 since release and I'm done with it. Gnome sucks.

Borders are not real.

They're nothing more than lines drawn by people. Arbitrary. Imaginary.

Nationalism and patriotism make no sense. This planet belongs to all of us. And us to it.

3. Ensure you don't limit yourself to a single programming language. Learn a second.

Each language community has different strengths and perspectives. You will learn valuable transferable skills.

I'm going to performance art festival today. I used to dislike performance when I come to uni. I'm still kinda picky and skeptical but I saw many good examples of performance and I learned to appreciate it. I did few myself as well.

"Microsoft is officially giving up on an independent shared platform for the internet. By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google. [..] If you care about what’s happening with online life today, take another look at Firefox. It’s radically better than it was 18 months ago — Firefox once again holds its own when it comes to speed and performance. "
