Today’s feel good message: a mastodon post “RIP Bob of Bob’s Red Mill who gave his company to his employees when he retired …”
Back from extended power outage. Can't wait for solar to be installed. Quite ridiculous!
Seems it is hard wired in us to not want to exercise. So you need to hack yourself to make it happen. That’s what my quest to build this blog platform has been all about! Just on a larger scale. 😀
So I was in the middle of scheduling our site survey for a solar and battery backup installation and the power went out. Fun times!! It was out for 3 hrs.
“You know all the random unforced tech layoffs are just labor disorganizing, right?
“That's it. That's all they are. They're making us play musical chairs with our jobs to keep us from ever building enough trust to organize. Their ideal outcome is a labor pool that's too traumatized and reactive to act collectively.
“Just pushing everyone into a scarcity mindset on purpose. It's the whole US economy writ small.

🤯 I have nothing to add. This sentiment is perfect.
No, it isn’t possible to have too much psychological safety. I’m very glad to have the reminder that this is the foundation of any work with teams. Especially ones that are right at the beginning of adopting XP.
Very inspiring post about how we can fix the internet.
Happy New Year! May we all find the circumstances and energy to live happier, healthier lives.
It looks like users of micro.blog won't be receiving replies from my site. That's because in order for my replies to show up on their timeline I have to have an account there. Makes me sad!
This article about how private equity-owned hospitals are more dangerous than others is a strong reminder that the profit motive is more likely to be at odds with the motive to benefit others.
Profound: “I think the word ‘should’ may stop us living full lives.”

I need to figure out how I feel about keeping animals in captivity. For wild animals, it seems like it creates great suffering so that some humans can get a little enjoyment. No brainer that this is generating negative karma.
But then what about domesticated ones? So long as their life with their human is better than it would have been in the wild are we doing the right thing? Is this karmically neutral? Hard to tell!
Huge fan of this vision! https://tech.lgbt/@some/111602180542613484
“Imagine a world without corporations, or rather, where corporations have gone extinct. Every family and community has their own servers, federating with others in a ritual process, defending their own against other groups with enmity.”
Feels like the language and stack I picked make it want to be a multi tenant thing instead of many small things running independently.
That is if I want to minimize electricity waste! Will need to see how much memory it takes to run this thing and do some thinking.
Starting to wonder — what will it take to make it super easy for folks to interact with my blog? While retaining control of all their content?
Wondering if “My Life” as a service could become a thing?
Why do I now feel so sad?
There are so many out there who dream of what I was somehow able to achieve who can’t seem to get there due to some inequity in our system.more inside...
