feet on desk insurrectionist's public defender got him a plea deal.

82 months in prison, no parole.

there's no way sitting in that chair was worth blowing your family's meager assets and then spending seven years in a fed prison. dumb fucker.

I am not and have never been a fan of a Cheney in politics but I absolutely respect Liz Cheney going out in a blaze of glory telling her peers off tonight

Not enjoying the part where I get accosted by a crazy homeless guy and I'm losing sleep thinking about what I could have done differently or fought back.

The Schooner Apollonia is soon getting underway on the Hudson with 6 tons of grain destined to become malt. If you life in NYC or elsewhere in the Hudson you can also get various goods shipped to you by river this may through their partner businesses. I'm very excited to see this happening, I've been volunteering with those guys in an off for the last two years. Hopefully I might be sailing with them some in the fall once I'm done with my current gig.

While all other crypto is faster, cheaper, and greener than BTC, the notable ones imo are:

Celo - built for mobile, carbon neutral
Stellar - built for payments and transactions, no coin mining
Cardano - distributed computing
Algorand - distributed computing aimed at traditional finance, carbon negative
Hedera - distributed computing, more efficient than blockchain

Any one of these overtaking BTC would be good for everyone.

Watched a bunch of presentations from Celo.org's Kuneco summit the last two days. It is possibly the most anti-BTC cryptocurrency around.

The very first thing they voted to do after launching was go carbon neutral 🌍️. One of the presentations was from Impact Market impactmarket.com/, which is a UBI charity program that runs on . It was very non-US centric, with speakers and projects from Africa, Brazil, and South Korea.

Illegal to not say "big stretch!" when a pet does a big stretch

Tidal and Qobuz think 2Cellos is "Classical" music. The first song I played was a cover of Eye of the Tiger.

I'm not sure that's an accurate definition of Classical.

Last night I discovered an interesting project where a comic book writer decided to make up a bunch of characters, give them some backstory, powers, flesh them out a bit, and give other writers something to work with.

Then he released all of them under Creative Commons.

I have had at least a half a dozen characters running around my brain for years. DECADES. I'm never going to get a chance to write about all of them.

So I'm totally going to do this. Maybe someone else can play with my toys!
