The ancient mound lies dark. At the autumn equinox sunrise, a ray of light shoots through a small hole, illuminating a book on a stand in the centre.
Those assembled there read, and as the light fades again they turn the page, ready for next year.
Some stories should be savoured.

Saw the 50 years of stonewall exhibit at the Brooklyn museum; it’s a weird but ticklish feeling to see the work of several peers that I have parasocial relationships/mutual friends/messy gossip on in a big fancy museum & is probably the closest i’ll come to how Frida Kahlo felt about the French surrealists she knew - ‘these cuckoo sons of bitches with their heads in the clouds’

"You know 'Build one to throw away'?"
"Learn by doing, then do properly? Like making prototypes, or writing first drafts, to throw away."
"That, but for parenting!"
"A draft child?"
"Yeah, a robot."
"You can't throw a child away."
"It's a robot."
"Its parents will love it."

Do you support me getting more involved in my community and the IWW, even if you aren't sure about how you're going to get involved yourself?

I'd appreciate any few dollars folk felt able to throw toward emsenn.net/support - in the past I've said "all money this month goes toward X friend in need."

For September: All money will go toward my bus fare to IWW events, printing up literature, and at the end of the month, anything extra I'll donate to the IWW's GDC - pays lawyers for folk fired

I wonder if there's a void server one can just scream into.

I guess the closest thing is piping my microphone to /dev/null.

I'm on my Epstein bullshit again

Sometimes, the moonlight will:
- draw a footpath on the water. If you walk it, it will cut you. Dance.
- forge a sword on the rocks. If you can pick it up, you'll know what to do.
- leave a ribbon for your lover's hair. If you tie it on, they can untie it.
- simply shine. On you.

"The sales figures for the Experiencer are in."
"Great! How are we doing? Lots of 'orgy' and 'winning fight' sold?"
"Some. The runaway hit is 'calm safety hug', the calibration exp."
"Because it's free?"
"Even people who bought other exps return to it."
"Make a premium version."

"No," said the witch, "love potions are unethical. Magic can't make someone love you. Or even love you again."
The young person gave her a resigned nod and turned to leave.
"But," the witch said, "for cases like yours, I can do an acceptance potion."
"For my parents?"
"Yes."

My older brother is a lawyer up in Boston and has spent all day defending the counter-protesters of the Straight Pride Parade. All charges dismissed. I'm super proud of him

Marginal tax rate vs effective tax rate 

Imma make this clear: I'm not building software for developers.

I'm working to building tools for people.

You shouldn't have to know to maintain and secure a server to have your own independent identity online. You shouldn't need to know what libsodium or similar library to be secure online.

That's my objective.

After they had saved world, the heroes looked at each other.
"Well done!" one of them said. "Let's save it again tomorrow."
"But..." said a new hero, "we just saved the world."
"And tomorrow, all of us will do it again."
"Every day," said a third, "as much as we can."
All nodded.
