"The best description of JS I've ever seen."

One thought I always have when writing is "but can I make it shorter?". I think I probably do it too much now. What do you think when writing?

@jforseth210 I just divide my web speech into three buckets:

1) Professional stuff is open and public
2) Personal stuff with people I know is done through direct communication only, ideally Signal or otherwise text or e-mail.
3) Stuff that is personal and open is always pseudonymous, and if I post enough that someone could dox me I'll delete stuff.

We live in weird times and even if you intend to be reasonable when you post, who knows what might set some activist with mental issues off? In any case, I don't understand why our culture is so obsessed with sharing things publicly anyways. Knowledge is power, and the less people other than my very close friends know about me (other than my professional work), the better. For everyone else, all I want them to know is "if you need to do X, hire Columbkille, he's great" and that's about it.

Imagine, for example, if you decided to become a computer programmer and get a job at Google, but they built a big profile on you and it said "this guy's a staunch Catholic and so probably doesn't support our new improved 2030 inclusion policy so nope." If your livelihood isn't "Catholic author," why give them that knowledge?

My family fled the USSR so admittedly I am paranoid, but increasingly this is how Americans are going to need to think.

this feels a little sacreligous, but I'm doing it nonetheless #c

catholicherald.co.uk/ch/on-lyi I'm not sure he really explained the "Bad things happen" part, but I agree that we shouldn't

Just watched the film Max Payne... It was a bit weak SFK at parts, but overall, it was fun (though perhaps I'm in a particularily suspension of disbelief mood). I think I have decided to like film noire now

Shower thoughts 

If a sysadmin mainly deals with managing and tending to various Unix services, does that make them a daemonologist?

If you're in a hurry to finish writing something, because you think you'll no longer want to write it tomorrow - is that a sign that it's not worth sharing?

RT @angryrobotbooks
Count Dracula was 412 when he moved to England in search of new blood.

Sauron was 54,000 years old when he forged The One Ring.

Cthulhu had seen galaxies flare into life and fade to darkness before he put madness in the minds of men.

It's never too late to follow your dreams!
