Hard SF Author. Readers call my stories 'Cory Doctorow meets James S A Corey.' I like making scifi concepts easy to understand. If you like Linda Nagata, Kim Stanley Robinson, and John Scalzi - I'd love to get to know you.

My dream is to take care of myself and be nice to people - I'm doing that by practicing to be a self-sufficient science fiction author.

Filmmaker @alexwinter joins EFF’s Cindy Cohn and @jgkelley on “How to Fix the Internet” to discuss decentralizing and democratizing the internet so more, diverse people can push tech, online communities, and our world forward. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2024/05/podcast-episode-chronicling-online-communities

@eff @alexwinter @jgkelley

Alex Winter is absolutely right: “They convince the public that this is all beyond them, and they should … leave it to the experts.” The good news is that people inherently despise being boxed in. Every historical attempt to create a technological 'walled garden' has failed.

All of this is why I think Alex Winter and the EFF would love Mesh.

A decade-long effort to build a machine to unlock the promise of nuclear fusion fell victim to budget constraints and competing science, and was shut down the day it was dedicated. It was never turned on.

FYI, someone just asked me, "Could you please put a CW on those US politics posts?"

I said no sorry,, just mute me.

I don't understand CWing political posts. And that doesn't mean you need to @ me explaining why. I know THEIR reasons, I just disagree with them and won't do it.

I respect CWs for other things, but not politics. Politics is news and people need to be aware of what's happening. It's not gory or violent, it's politics.

Kthxbye.

@GottaLaff You can go all Miss Manners on them: "Instead of asking the world to regulate what it might allow you to see, you might try regulating yourself so that when you see something 'distasteful,' you can approach it with calm and maturity."

Indie publications are finding success with an old-school recipe: high-quality print, a tight-knit community, and less advertising.

I did my first heavy leg day in a month, but not as heavy as the last one that I felt fo ra week. I was pretty tight yesterday morning so did an easy run but followed by lots of walking throughout the day. I'm feeling it a lot more today. Time to work out the beef jerky!

No one has seen the data behind Tyson’s “climate friendly beef” claim

Millions of taxpayer dollars flow to livestock companies raising "low carbon" beef.
