Heute zum ersten Mal XMPP ausprobiert. Ich hatte bisher nur die zentral verwalteten Chatsysteme ausprobiert (Signal, Wire, ...) aber nicht die dezentralen... 😅

Falls wer mich sucht:

Habe die letzten beiden Abende eine deutsche Version meiner BrickCamp Webseite erstellt - nicht perfekt, aber ein Anfang 😊 Nun ist sie zweisprachig.

The best description I've seen of what it feels like to make art 

So if it's artists being referred to as pretentious, then... yeah. Artists do regularly attempt to impress by affecting greater importance, talent and culture than is actually possessed.

In fact, it's the leap you pretty much have to take to create anything. It's your foolish hope that you might go from not knowing how to do something to doing something, and then eventually doing it well enough that you might want to share it with other people.

The creative process as I've witnessed it is generally plagued by frustration, insecurity, and doubt, alternated by brief moments of pleasure in having made something you think is halfway decent, followed by having to summon ludicrous amounts of confidence in order to have to share that thing with other people, and concluding with night sweats as you wonder immediately after -- and then forever after -- whether you are a fraud and your work is terrible no matter how many people say they like it.

Hearing this is so validating I don't even know how to express it.

Ich hatte gestern dieses Seminar, in dem ich mit den Studies ein wenig auf unserer eigenen #Mastodon-Instanz herumgedaddelt habe. Hier mal ein erstes Fazit:

Phrases I have no desire to see when setting up a computer for the first time include, but are not limited to "sit back and relax while we work our magic" and "we're still working" and "still setting things up"

(I'm (temporally) setting up Windows 10 before installing my linux distro of choice, in case that wasn't obvious)

"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves.
