I return to this id, after some shenanigans. Lesson: have backup hardware. I'm now using a Thinkpad X100e with Debian that I got on sale at a thrift shop a few weeks ago. I have an EOMA68 computer card pre-ordered so I expect to return to modular computing at some point in the future.

Re: %bpyUVAsIt

@Soggypretzels I carry around two extra micro SD cards in SD adapters and a SD USB card reader, so that I can mount them on my existing system or boot from them. One is an older system install similar to my current one, and the other is plain Raspbian. These come in handy when the boot cycle breaks on my main system, so that I can boot into one of the other systems and chroot into my main system to fix it.

I don't carry a backup Pi - I haven't had problems with this one.

Sometimes I carry a mouse which can serve as a backup for the trackpad - although mainly because I prefer using the mouse.

I also carry a small USB wifi device but haven't used that in a while.

Re: %bpyUVAsIt

i got a usb keyboard at a local flea market / farmers market.
the setup is now a little more cumbersome, but more flexible. i can now jettison the pi-top top-case (keyboard enclosure area). although i might keep using the trackpad assembly, because it uses less power than the mouse.

Speculative Bitcoin Adoption/Price Theory

https://medium.com/@mcasey0827/speculative-bitcoin-adoption-price-theory-2eed48ecf7da &quafX8Y...
via https://reddit.com/r/ethtrader/comments/6lvo6z/if_you_dont_understand_whats_going_on_right_now/

The growth of adoption of Bitcoin and therefore bitcoin price is following an S-Curve of Technological Adoption, which is itself characterized by fractally repeating, exponentially increasing Gartner Hype Cycles.

#economics #bitcoin #ethereum


...

bitcoin-bubble.png

When looking at the structure of the bubble phenomenon, it is difficult not to be reminded of another commonly accepted concept in technology: the Gartner Hype Cycle, which illustrates Amara’s Law:

“We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run.”

Gartner Hype Cycle:

gartner-hype-cycle.png

Basically, for anything new there is a mad flurry of excitement over potential applications, followed by the realization that most of them don’t work, followed by a slow learning of what does work, followed by sustained progress.
After much careful examination; it becomes apparent that a roughly analogous pattern of excitement, disappointment, and cautious optimism occurs in both a Gartner Hype Cycle and bitcoin bubble.

hype-bubble.png

Unlike a typical Gartner Hype Cycle, a bitcoin bubble does not reach a steady state of gradual increase. As mentioned before, it must continue to follow the exponentially increasing path of the S-curve. Why then does it follow the hype cycle at all? This is because the nature of bitcoin investment is almost entirely speculative. Speculation is driven, in large measure, by hype.

nycmesh-bushwick.jpg

We identified the most success in neighborhoods where a volunteer (or two) championed the idea for their area. In East Williamsburg/Bushwick - a fast changing Brooklyn neighborhood - a local team set up a supernode on an old fire house. This node which is only established in May now connects three rooftops and also a community center. The East Village neighborhood network is headed by a core member and is the longest established neighborhood network. The network was connected to Supernode 1 in January letting members cancel their commercial ISP connections. Our oldest public access point is in the neighborhood bar “DBA”, which was also the location of many of the early meetups. Six rooftops in the area are connected to the supernode and provide a robust and stable mesh for the neighborhood, many nodes having continuous reliable service since February.

Currently available on nycmesh.net/leaflet [&emOM1ov...] are: one page flyers, simple brochures, a site survey template, and a landlord/building management template. The idea behind these materials are to have simple leaflets for neighbors and brochures for institutions and and building management companies.

Our website has been updated over the last six months to include information on how to start a community network in your own city- nycmesh.net/how [&ho4yd6d...] This is currently a four page document that will be expanded over the year adding specific details. NYC Mesh has been getting emails from all over the world asking how to do build a network, so we hope this helps.

The Cyberpaleo Ethic

http://mailchi.mp/ribbonfarm/the-cyberpaleo-ethic-and-the-spirit-of-postcapitalism &2aY65L8...

Whether work leads to burnout or self-actualization is related to our ability to answer two questions about what we are doing: is it necessary, and is it meaningful?

...

8/ Necessity relates to the capacity for staying alive. Meaning relates to the interestingness of doing so. Burnout happens when one outruns the other.

...

Internal burnout is when you accumulate an interestingness debt. You do what's necessary to live, and it slowly drains your will to live at all.

16/ External burnout is when you accumulate a survivability debt. You do what's necessary to stay interested in living, but it slowly drains your ability to stay alive at all.

...

It seems that an element of necessity is necessary for things to be interesting; mere variability in environmental responses to actions is not enough.

...

21/ Necessity is what turns distinctions into differences, and allows us to care enough about variation to make it interesting enough to survive for.

...

We are barely scratching the surface yet of what life looks like when the play-work distinction dissolves into play-that-works.

39/ We are reinventing work to reflect the deeper cognitive structure of paleolithic environments of evolutionary adaptatedness (EEA). This is deeper than "gamification."

40/ But we are also re-imagining work to have the post-capitalist macroeconomic structure made possible by software eating the world and creating various kinds of abundance.

the cyberpaleo human condition [...] integrates the postscarcity economic logic of computation with the psychological structure of human play-that-works.

...

45/ Because necessity is necessary for meaning, humans never cash out material surpluses to make necessity 100% unnecessary. We always find a way to stake our life on things.

...

the cyberpaleo ethic: all the conveniences of the cyber age, with all the life-and-death meaningfulness of the paleolithic age -- engineered by choice into the environment.

ex: me walking for miles today even though i have could have driven a car or biked

50/ Pure cyberutopia would be deadly to our paleo brains. If necessity becomes unnecessary, we lose the will to live. We'll find ways to turn universal basic income into life/death gambles.

51/ Equally, those who yearn for a "natural" condition where raw survival of the strongest in some stylized non-Darwinian sense is everything, are doomed to disappointment.

[...]

54/ If meaning and necessity are truly integrated, then your mind and body can heal from all non-fatal stresses. What doesn't kill you does indeed make you stronger.

...

66/ The idea of the cyberpaleo ethic is to create a new environment of evolutionary adaptation, for our technologically extended selves.

67/ An environment where not only do bodies evolve in response to the pressures of biological survival, but minds evolve in response to the pressures of meaning-making.

68/ Stewart Brand once famously remarked, "we are as gods, we might as well get good at it." In the cyberpaleo environment, what doesn't kill us will make us god-like.

in other news, the Universal Robot Band says, "we are going to Space".

Semicolon-Shaped People

...

33/ To do deep work in the world of Javascript, you can't afford to be a T-shaped person. You have to be what I call a semi-colon shaped person.

34/ The dot of the semi-colon represents the anchor community for your deep work. In Gatsby's case, the world of Javascript sprawling messily across industry and open-source worlds.

35/ The curvy tail is the rhizomatic structure you explore to do something deep. It will sprawl untidily across a map built out of T's. It will offend sensibilities and violate sacred beliefs about what goes where.

36/ The gap between the dot and the tail is what I call the Explorer's Chasm. To do deep work in a rhizomatic zone, you must have a "secret" separating you from your community.

37/ The chasm is crucial. It represents a sort of epistemic estrangement from the nearest socialized zone of knowledge. This is necessary for work that is not just deep, but has truly original elements.

38/ The chasm also symbolizes the possibility that a work of deep knowing and doing does not have a necessary, pre-determined and fixed connection to a locus of socialization that "owns" the work.

39/ This means the knowledge could be subversive and challenge institutional authority. Squint a little and the tail of the semicolon might appear attached to a different dot.

40/ And finally, a semicolon is both smaller and lower in a line of text than a T. I like to think this symbolizes its capacity for a) going deeper b) being efficient at a smaller scale.

41/ Paradoxically, because being semicolon-shaped means being less attached to a default social home locus, it requires you to be more agile, nomadic, alive, and active in relating to social context.

42/ Tenured professors with status in a discipline can tune out the world and do "deep work" peers recognize as "important" before it is done (with accompanying ivory-tower/angels-on-pinhead risks).

43/ But a free agent, with no institutional safety net, no underwriting of exploratory expeditions by disciplinary consensus, and no research grants, cannot afford this luxury.

44/ To do deep work in semicolon mode, you must be plugged in, despite being fundamentally alone on your path, continuously renegotiating the meaning of what you're doing with the social context.

Re: %JkiJXa5MM

looks like cli-md builds on marked-terminal. also, marked-terminal can't be used as-is with ssb-marked - it will need some additional functions added (mention and hashtag at least) - and since it is just going to the terminal there is not much useful to do except make them look like links, so using ssb-marked instead of marked might not offer much in this use case

Re: %JkiJXa5MM

@kas are you trying to render ssb markdown, or markdown in general?

if ssb integration is a goal, i would recommend trying https://github.com/mikaelbr/marked-terminal, because it plugs into marked, of which ssb-marked is a fork (adding support for linkifying ssb refs and other things)
