In-reply-to > @eaplmx your new avatar reminds me of the Chihuahua dog from the early 1990's Taco Bell advertisements, "Yo quiero Taco Bell". Warning, a very low rendering quality YouTube video. Yet, funny and still worth seeing. 😂

So 90s! Nice memory…
If you like Marketing, look for the book ‘The end of publicity as we know it’ (2000, I think), it talks about that campaign.

Starting my day over here… Meetings with old acquaintances, classes, working on Image processing and going with my wife to the supermarket if you wonder.
Seems like a fun day #letsSee

In-reply-to > "Fun" day at work today. It seems a recent critical update to Microsoft Windows servers (physical and virtual) is causing a few of our AD controllers to be on a boot loop. That, of course, is affecting many other services. Yup, one of those Mondays. Oh, wait, it is Tuesday already!

@fastidious good luck!… Usually Mondays for me are the rollercoaster of everything not done by the weekend and pushing people to work again, so…

In-reply-to > one of the difficulties of digital goods is the perceived value. Why is so simple to spend 2 USD (or equivalent) on a coffee and so hard to do it on a book/game/app? Our minds play tricks when we can't touch something. (For instance, in the current debate with the NFT nobody understands anything).

and what I’m explaining is that giving you a product protecting the interests of the consumer ‘might’ go against the interests of the producer (that usually is money)

@fastidious I know, they (author/publisher) are not interested in giving a “non-privacy eroding garbage” in exchange for @prologic ’s money

In some other regions, money is an issue. I don’t see it here.

In-reply-to > About Scaling Up - Verne Harnish's Best-selling Book

When someone says is good for business, usually I ask for proof of that. As a concept sounds good. I’m getting more people aware of my content. How many of those will be actually buying the product? How many will use the free alternative instead of that money going to the author/publisher?

I really understand the DRM, I get DRM-free products first, or I use any tool to unlock the content. That said, currently, indie producers rely more on customers’ good faith, that they are not releasing the content to the public.

In-reply-to > These days the 'microscandal' for Jodorowsky's "Dune" bible happened. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/amansethi/spicedao-dunedao-soby

All that is about ownership. Of our life, our time, our resources, our destiny. ‘Our’ as in you and me, and as a collective society/community/organization.

These days the ‘microscandal’ for Jodorowsky’s “Dune” bible happened. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/amansethi/spicedao-dunedao-soby

It’s really interesting to me how technology like crypto (whatever that means), Non-Fungible Tokens, public/private keys, etc. etc. will redefine what we define as ownership. Mainly when the ownership of digital goods and working in an online world will be greater than the physical alternatives.

I wrote a few ideas about the ‘isms’ we require for our lives https://text.eapl.mx/quick-ideas-about-isms-and-ownership

In-reply-to > I finally managed to successfully solve one side of a Rubiks cube without any training or reading up on the instructions and patterns of movements used to solve a Rubiks cube in the first place! One side down dude more to go! 😂

@prologic Wooow, congrats!
I have never solved the 3x3 cube alone (only using apps and such, you dirty cheater).
I was able to memorize the steps for the 2x2, but that’s my final achievement, it seems…

In-reply-to > I released the issue for AntenaZINE - Week 2 HTTP / AntennaZINE 2022 Week 2

@prologic For format, do you mean using PDF files or such? I’ve seen blog posts, mailing lists, PDF files, and I haven’t seen EPUB files that much.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrack <- A famous ezine from the 80s

For culture, yes, I’ve seen is a pattern of sharing knowledge selflessly. But also it’s very unpredictable how long is going to last, or how often the issues are released.

In-reply-to > I released the issue for AntenaZINE - Week 2 HTTP / AntennaZINE 2022 Week 2

@prologic No worries! Usually an e-zine is a fanmade or indie magazine distributed over electronic media. Zines were originally distributed by physical mail, and then by e-mail. Nowadays for the nostalgic feeling of Gemini, you can find a few Zines/Ezines there.

In-reply-to > I overheard a wonderful piece of wisdom I think anyone in a position of leadership should really be mindful of:

For me, now, the team is extremely important, mainly for industries based on talents, like design or programming. There, trust is extremely important, because how do you measure creativity? How do you trust that the programmer is doing their best work to create a stable system?

Yes, work is transactional. I work 8 hours a day, I receive X dollars a month, but also we are together because we believe and trust in the same values.

In-reply-to > I overheard a wonderful piece of wisdom I think anyone in a position of leadership should really be mindful of:

Running a company myself (a micro-company of fewer than 10 employees), I thought the Why, what for? Is the entire point, and the trust is ‘for granted’ to pursue that meaning and purpose.
But I get your point. The trust that we are going in the same direction, makes everything work as we expect.

I think there are (at least) two ways:
The employee as a mean, or the employe as an end. Usually, the purpose of a company is to make money, and the employee is the tool (disclaimer: I don’t agree completely).

@lyse Advanced engineering!

In-reply-to > Lowest temperature in the year, 0° C. 🥶

@fastidious I’m in CUU, it could easily go to -5 and some years it goes to -15. With snow every 3 or 5 years (we had some in Dec 2020 and was an event!).

We had the lowest temp of 2022, but has not been THAT bad as previous years…

In-reply-to > Well... It depends on many many things. For me it always has been a secondary desktop 🖥 (behind MacOS and Win), buuuut I use Linux (and BSD for Hobbie projects) in VPS, WSL, mobile and embedded devices, so... 🤔

@fastidious I know, I know…
Alternative Desktops (from Win, to the always second Mac) has been a long discussion for years. That’s why I’m asking for the current data.

Is perhaps taking 0.1% a year? No idea!

In-reply-to > When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or buy lemons and make lemonade. The point is to make lemonade.

@movq hey! Love lemonade!
First time I tried the Zitronen Saft (Lemon juice 🍋, sorry for my German) it was too bitter for me!

In my zone we use the Green Limes for the Limonada, and weirdly they are called Lemons/Limones!


#tdvyega

Lowest temperature in the year, 0° C. 🥶

How is your day going over there?
Here we are lazily in bed until an earthquake arrives or something…

Disclaimer: we don’t do earthquakes in this town 😛

In-reply-to > Are We Getting Closer to the Year of the Linux Desktop? Earlier this year TechRepublic argued that while 2021 wasn't the year of the Linux desktop, "there was no denying the continued dominance of Linux in the enterprise space and the very slow (and subtle) growth of Linux on the desktop. And in just about every space (minus the smartphone arena), Linux made some serious gains."

Well… It depends on many many things. For me it always has been a secondary desktop 🖥 (behind MacOS and Win), buuuut I use Linux (and BSD for Hobbie projects) in VPS, WSL, mobile and embedded devices, so… 🤔

Does anyone have more recent info? (this one is from more than 20 years ago)

@movq there are different kinds of Holy Water! 😅

@fastidious it reminds me that the first (automated) vending machine was for Holy water!
