If you won't come to the Mikvah

Title: relates to a sketch I've been working on - person standing in rain - 「If you won't come to the mikvah, the mikvah will come to you」.

SCS network has again been having problems, preventing me from getting work done. Very frustrating, especially as every time another network hiccup happens I need to give TLC to a few systems. Upside: I now am pretty sure I've figured out what I had conceptually wrong with the 802.1Q project, and hopefully with just a bit more coding I can finish that project and start on the other one.

Personal life remains interesting.

I've been thinking about what blog software would look like were it to take folding (like lj-cut or what code editors do) very seriously, and add types to folds. Issue: are we less likely to write content when we suspect people will have to dig way down to read them? Would transclusions be a reasonable source of content? Is this just an uninteresting variant of a WikiLink then?

Strange: Looking back at old textfiles with summaries of dreams typed in, using familiarity to help remind self of which dreams are part of long-term identity and which are from the events of the day. Wondering: how does this relate to blogs? Journals?

Here's a wonderful Dar Williams cover of 「Midnight Radio」, a song that's recently been competing with Vienna Tengの「The Tower」 for main earworm in my head.

I sometimes wonder how often people talk about the narratives the use to give meaning to their lives - I suspect that this is a nearly universal tendency, but maybe it's too personal/emotionally dangerous to lay that kind of thing on the table. Or maybe I'm wrong about how common it is.

With abated breath

This may be yet another revision/restatement of theory I've been working on for a time, and it could probably be sharpened a bit further than I have here. Enjoy.Žižek - socialism as the true enemy of communism. Criticism:Collapse )
