Soft-launching this to followers only - please don’t RT or share at the moment, I’m looking for constructive criticism. I’ll do a full launch after I’ve heard what comes of having your collective eyeballs on it.

Anyway, here it is, my shiny new Patreon.

Late to the party, I know, but I’ve just heard about Israel’s Beresheet lander. Yeah, it was taken out by high-velocity dirt. It’s still an absolutely stunning achievement when you consider they got all the way there for the equivalent of two days of NASA’s budget.

My first reaction was that the Danny Baker furore was probably overblown, that it’s eminently plausible that there wasn’t racist intent. Then I remembered that intent counts for jack shit in terms of the act itself.

Impact matters.

Intent is context for what happens afterward.

‪REMINDER: If you’re planning on ever launching a Patreon, DO IT TODAY BY MIDNIGHT (not sure which time zone). You don’t have to have it in it’s final state, just reviewed by them (~10min for me) and launched (a manual step after review). Do so and you avoid significant new fees.‬

today's addition to my comically large project list: we've got fediverse Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram clones - but you know what we don't have? Something that hasn't had a compelling competitor since everyone stopped using it, but many people miss. Fediverse LiveJournal.

All I’m saying is that most mid-range quadcopters would be perfectly capable of carrying a milkshake and, with minor modifications, dropping it on your fascist of choice shortly before making a getaway at a speed too great to be followed on foot

I can almost taste the tears of awful people which will accompany the next episode of the Twilight Zone remake.

Discovery Season 2 finale 

Aaand we have Keybase support on sigint.sx! Exciting stuff. I particularly like that Keybase are implementing a more generalised attestation flow than just integrating with yet another environment. keybase.io/docs/proof_integrat

There’s an argument that Kate Bouman is undeserving of recognition because she didn’t commit the largest amount of code. Here’s why it’s absurd. The ideologues arguing it are inherently familiar enough with writing code to KNOW this. It’s wilful intellectual dishonesty.

I’ve released the first public version of my ZeroTier quality-of-life utility, `zt`.

Documentation: github.com/daveio/zt
RubyGems: rubygems.org/gems/zt

More export formats, as well as support for writing configuration back to ZeroTier, coming when I get time.
