when you treat a single lifetime as encompassing the horizon, you cannot form the ambition necessary to perceive the contours of eternity

@alexandria social capital is fake. straight up if a queer group is ostracizing you for being a bit of an outcast, then they're doing a terrible fucking job at being a queer group. clique-y queer groups are not worth the fuss. been there

do you know what mellowed my fucking opinions on the world? being able to curate which other opinions I am exposed to

In the same way "carbon footprint" is a concept with some merit that has been weaponised beyond the point of return by gas companies, "echo chamber" places the blame on consumers of social media when the real problem isn't that they're completely surrounded only by opinions they've selected to hear, it's that the social media companies are bombarding them with things they'll find anger provoking or distressing

Whenever I see somebody saying something was "sold as an NFT", I right click on it and save it. And then I have it too. It works 100% of the time. Anyone can do this.

moody, work 

there's just no fucking way i can meet every single requirement without putting myself in a corner where i am handling every single dumb fuck edge case possible, which puts us right back where the problem started!

moody, work 

every single step i take reveals two more things that i need to change. it feels like i'm not making progress at all.

so tomorrow i've got my 1-1 with my boss, and i'm just so fucking tempted to just tell him that i'm starting to believe that this project will never see the light of day.

so today is a zero spoons kind of day. too much to do. looking at my plan and it feels impossible. having my confidence shattered hurts.

I'm starting to doubt the work I've put in. More edge cases keep coming up and I can only adjust both my data model and my mental model before they're brought to a breaking point (and one of those already came dangerously close). I've one idea I'll try today but the odds aren't looking too hot.

@minervissa I really wish capitalism didn't force the computer-illiterate to use computers.

I feel like a lot of human effort is wasted on making computers easier to use for people who have no interest in actually using the computer. Ease-of-use is exactly how we get into a situation where people can unwittingly end up in situations where they're victimized. Unfortunately, most people are rewarded for not having expertise.

@minervissa I think a lot about how easy it can be to engage in some forms of cybercrime.

...I don't know on whom it reflects worse.
