I’m reading Cynical Theories, about Postmodernism. I keep wondering, how did Postmodernism not deconstruct Postmodernism? Postmodernism could easily be dismantled via a simple Postmodern analysis of who has power. Further, why were “other ways of knowing” ever pushed in academia? Universities represented specific “ways of knowing.” Damn right there are “other ways of knowing,” which people outside academia know; I myself dropped out of college in order to learn better. Pushing “other ways of knowing” within academia only maintains the power of academia, which was already bloated and oppressive 40 year ago.

Loaded and ready to go. Tools and box coming home. Won't need them for the new job. From here on out wrenching for recreational purposes only.

It has been an age since I last walked the path of the Avatar.

Tonight I start the process of braising the beef short ribs. If one wants to eat short ribs tomorrow then one must start cooking them today.

No doubt I have way too many short ribs.

What is the best way for me to learn how to use #blind #accessibility options? I thought that I could get a better understanding of people's needs by experiencing how they use their computer.

@djsumdog Yes! many sets of solutions for many sets of users.

An agreed-upon list of the 1,000 most commonly used words in a language, mapped to a standardized character set.

Easy to encode, easy to decode, reduces bandwidth in transmission, difficult to read at a glance (although nothing at all like encryption).

Not one system, many systems, for non-overlapping circles of users.


I don’t have a single word to say about better or worse, real or fake, original or copy. I can say that I’m looking at toki pona (2001) for the first time and thinking about bolo’bolo (1983) and Blissymbolics (1949) again. I like them all.

Funny you should mention Distributism. I was recently discussing Belloc & Chesterton, & their economic ideas, on my show (07-03 & 07-10).
