Watching Kipchoge run is something else. The rhythm, calm, enjoyment -

@neauoire as someone who forecasts hydrology, the only thing I'm certain of is an increase in uncertainty

@maya part of it must be the hedonic ladder at play. The perceived needs keep shifting; need to support their houses, luxuries, ventures. Faulty justification but built into some of core society (in US at least) ?

mood - 

@grey you're not alone. For me it's linked with my work, creative outlets and exercise on any given day.

Hope it becomes, at the very least in the short term, less isolating.

Watched "Wings of Hope", a Werner Herzog film exploring Juliane Koepcke's sole survival of a plane crash in the Peruvian rainforest.

There is poetry in his documentaries.

I impulse purchased this gorgeous French comic/graphic novel from a Parisian used book store

just finished East of Eden.

It touches many of my interests and passions: hydrology, farming, exploring human relationship with work and purpose.

“The coyotes nuzzled along the slopes and, torn with sorrow-joy, raised their heads and shouted their feeling, half keen, half laughter, at their goddess moon."

@maya I've asked this same question a number of times lately. The discussion in the thread is great.

There were those recent cyber attacks on meat production, a pipeline, etc. I wondered if they were environmentally motivated, but I think it turned out to be pure profit.

why is there so little ecoterrorism now? not to sound plaintive, it just doesn't make sense to me

@rostiger found a great used one. Have been loving it this past week. ty

@rostiger oo I've wanted an X100 for many years but could never find a used one for a good price near me. Maybe I'll resume that search.

I am captivated by your site content. Can't wait to poke through it more.

I added "plugins" to mmx, which are bash files that generate html and can be included via mmxup.

The first one I made does an network request and calculates my solar generation and power consumption.

39% of yesterday's grid generation was natural gas; 25.9% was coal 😞

@rostiger I love this format! I did something similar, but for a much shorter journey {}. Yours looks fantastic. What's the image processing you do to make it looks so dreamy?

@winduptoy I read through the docs and I think it's fantastic. Right now my business is wrapped up in Stripe and horrendous enterprise accounting software straight from hell.

Glad you are using Go Templates - nice and accessible. This will be the first thing I reach for in the future!

@winduptoy cool - I hadn't heard of Ledger before this but just found the GitHub. Thanks for turning me on to it

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

Key points:
* The problem:
- The current emissions from computing are about 2% of the world total but are projected to rise steeply over the next two decades. By 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C. This growth in computing emissions is unsustainable: it would make it virtually impossible to meet the emissions warming limit.
- The emissions from production of computing devices far exceed the emissions from operating them, so even if devices are more energy efficient producing more of them will make the emissions problem worse. Therefore we must extend the useful life of our computing devices.

* The solution:
As a society we need to start treating computational resources as finite and precious, to be utilised only when necessary, and as effectively as possible. We need frugal computing: achieving the same results for less energy.

* The vision:
- Imagine we can extend the useful life of our devices and even increase their capabilities without any increase in energy consumption.
- Meanwhile, we will develop the technologies for the next generation of devices, designed for energy efficiency as well as long life.
- Every subsequent cycle will last longer, until finally the world will have computing resources that last forever and hardly use any energy.
