The content here is mirrored from social media and sites, I’m in a quest to catalog my thoughts and ideas in a single place. I’m not sure if this is the right place, but I’m trying it out.

Managed to tweak a nice Fuji profile that works fantastically for both night and day photos. The first one surprised me the most specially because it has at least 5 different light regions and I can easily pick when needed. Image

AI and automation gives the illusion that it will soon outperform human efforts in many qualified areas, making many feel replaceable or undervalued. In essence, it might be a combination of all these factors, creating a maelstrom of disillusionment and disenchantment in the tech sector.

Several factors could be contributing to this sentiment. It’s possible the ongoing effects of the pandemic have taken a toll on their mental well-being. Equally significant might be the realization that their hard work often lines the pockets of billionaires while simultaneously contributing to job losses and shattered dreams for many others. There’s also a growing sentiment that the unique qualities and creativity of individual tech professionals are being overshadowed.

The more conversations I have with peers, the stronger my observation becomes: many technology professionals seem to be experiencing their own version of “Mal du siècle.” This term, once used to describe the disillusionment and melancholy of the 19th century, seems apt for the pervasive feelings of despondency that many in the tech world now express. There is a palpable sense of apathy, discouragement, and even a growing distaste for what was once pursued with passion and eagerness.

I believe in shapeshifters, kind of…

It surprises me how some people invest so much effort in maintaining a facade that doesn’t align with their true selves. The moment they break character, they revert to their original form, which usually is unbearable specially for longer periods.

I’ve always had mixed feelings about Electron and web apps,

I’ve used Notion primarily for its database features, which reminds me of the days I maintained my own clipper + dbf for random notes. Even dabbled with Microsoft Access for that purpose.

Considering a switch to a simple UI over SQLite now, does anyone know if such a tool exists before I venture on my own?

My grandma planted, harvested, roasted, ground, and then poured her own coffee in a cloth filter.

She was the ultimate hipster by today standards.

It’s finally done.

Giuseppe Reichmuth - Dinosaurier auf der Autobahn

In all it’s glory, “Uber high res” and color accurate according to the original painting and not the lithography.

Thanks to the Schweizerisches Sozialarchiv from Zurich to kindly provide enough scanned material that allowed the restoration.

Unfortunately I can’t share the files since I don’t have licensed it. But I’m working towards it. Image

I’d suggest not one, but two books to tame down their naivety. Image

I don’t understand how the tech TMZ convinced Kent Beck to be on this article but I’d anticipated more acumen from both.

Arguing with McKinsey is akin to playing Tyrant’s Chess, where not only does the opponent disregard all the game conventions and rules but commands the entire board, making your every move an exercise in futility.

McKinsey is deeply invested in this venture to be convinced otherwise. Image

Using John Williams as a vector of discord.

When discussing John Williams with a classically trained musician, you might casually remark that he’s even more iconic than Gustav Mahler. Brace yourself for the reaction.

However, when talking to die-hard Star Wars fans or however they identify nowadays, argue that Williams lacks originality, having merely repurposed old classical compositions. Boldly suggest that Kanye West executed this approach more effectively.

Berlin is considering pumping water from a desalinization plant in the Baltic as an alternative water source.

That plot in the middle of nowhere in Brazil with a water source will come in handy in the future.
