Here’s one big take away for me about moving from Github to

Github treats source control like a social network. Getting stars on your projects, following users, news feeds, showing off your usage stats for... some reason.

It’s not until you get away from that you realise how fucking awful and pointless it is.

A load of other stuff too, but that.

I put together a gemini chess app, but I haven't had a chance to deploy it. Throwing this out into the void in case anyone is interested:

Sometimes I wish software engineers saw struggles against intellectual property / licensing as part of a broader political struggle, ie one that requires organization, activism, and legislative change, not increasingly esoteric software licenses

Hacker news posters should be banned from discussing things they know nothing about: politics, science, business, and technology

Gemini is really really good the biggest problem is that only like a few dozen people are active on it in the whole world. Idk how anyone finds out about it and doesn’t drop everything for a few months building software for it lol

People love to rewrite coreutils in rust but with terminal colors

"But I’m serious when I tell people the odds of me running for higher office and the odds of me just going off trying to start a homestead somewhere — they’re probably the same." - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
