@dominic but would it make enough revenue to pay for the satellite data?

I have one of these waterproof rugged USB satellite modems, which would be great for offshore platforms (I actually got it for a unmanned boat project that it's now shelved ) and it's not cheap to send even an SMS worth of data.

Re: %pLBkGmeVt

If you're gonna mine with solar power, you might as well choose a proof-of-stake coin and use a Raspberry Pi for it.

Like these guys are planning to do! :)

Re: %u26WShaFb

I read these on a nightly basis:

  • The Three Little Pigs
  • The Ugly Duckling

aloud to my 3-year-old daughter.
I also read Little Red Riding Hood, but stopped because I found it bit gruesome in the middle (a person gets eaten alive!)

For my own bedtime I started reading The Dispossessed after seeing it suggested by several people here (@mix, @substack, @dinosaur). Very good so far.

Next in my queue is "Crypto Anarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias" edited by Peter Ludlow. Anyone here read that?

The spot where we emptied the composting toilet before we left has 3 very large tomato plants growing there now. They are far larger than any of our other plants and we didn't plant anything there so the seeds must have survived digestion.

I had no idea that some seeds can survive digestion. Fascinating stuff.

Hard to single out threads, given lots of good stuff, especially the great discussions in #seasteading, #boats, #anarchitecture, #transhumanism, etc.

But if I had to pick one then it was the one about twitter's forgotten story, although most of the back story is really in external links.

Also really enjoyed @substack's photolog of his DIY dwelling construction.

Re: %NGpIxJaPl

Just took the time to read that Kon Tiki passage on plankton. Wonderful, the whole thing, but especially the bits about blowing water through one's mustaches and the experience of the breathing whale!

So that's one book that I'd like to add to my collection, but as expected not easy to find on ebook format. I might have to settle for a PDF version or even a dead-tree one.

@dominic I read a review that the english translation mistakenly translated 'wave' as 'sea' throughout the book. Is that the case?

Re: %HB+deK+K+

I sometimes find it a good experience to be exposed to views so opposed to my own.

Having said that, I do agree that some work could be done in filtering based on channels, so if I really want to avoid seeing particular kinds of content I could blacklist those channels.

But that would require that people can properly categorize their posts. Failing that, others could curate content by overlaying extra channels/tags that their friends could see, and filter upon.

For example, I'd have added #authoritarianism to your post.
