I think serialism should be treated like the Ars Subtilior -- especially Webern.

There was no drone delivery future. There was never going to be a drone delivery future.

Just like there was never going to be self-driving Uber taxis. Or Amazon Go supermarkets on every corner. Or hyperloops. Or earth-to-earth space travel on SpaceX rockets. Or level-five full self driving Teslas.

Just like there will not be a general artificial intelligence ChatGPT in the next couple of years.

They were all scams designed to lure dollars from investors and generate good PR.

It was all bullshit. It was always bullshit.

Nothing more.

@botvolution If it's free on Amazon Prime, you know it's shit.

@botvolution Yeah, just sayin'. I've noticed those later series on Prime, but with them charging for everything now, if they're free it's probably not something worth watching.

#Fitbit advice if it won't sync: "Make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices around". Brilliant.

Spoons have enormous potential for humanity, but also pose risks, such as being left out on the table and dripping honey on things that shouldn't have honey dripped on them.

That is why we need to re-engineer our spoons to be aligned with human values like keeping our surfaces clean, saving excess honey, and promoting flourishing.

I'm thrilled to announce I've received $1 billion in series A funding to solve this problem at scale.

@tedchoward This was my first Linux install (1995). There's a hand-written note inside saying "Slackware 2.2".

Still running Slackware, amazing! I switched to SuSE in '98 (currently running Debian).

@neongod@mstdn.social avatar

Why do people continue to talk about the “future of Amiga”? Like <insert random product here> is the future of Amiga. Would they also say something like the “C64OS is the future of C64”? Or ZX Spectrum Next is the future of ZX Spectrum?

I don’t get it. Can someone explain?

Kill it! Kill it with fire BEFORE they make it move faster.

Boston Dynamics is not helping those of us with robot-phobia when they make videos like this.

Don't lay it out like a corpse and then animate it's clanky-ass so it can flagrantly violate all the rules of movement our human brains are comfortable with.
