#Systemd is 0-3 on actually being able to shut down any of my systems. BLAH.

TJ peaces out and bit-chomping Node.JS would-be-leaders immediately flip the bozo bit and start trying to make their mark. Collections is a fine lib, but keep Node.js reasonable! Good to see Kris's initial weigh in,

Limitations of flow-based programming:
1. Node-RED can only do synchronous flows.
2. NoFlo coordinates only a single runtime.

Flow-based programming serves as a high-level coordinator, as a component architecture system. But to limit this architecture to a single set of components executing on a single box is faulty. We need to be blowing up the runtimes, we need web components, not in the DOM sense but in the web of resources sense, in the systems signalling systems sense. Processing nodes need to have accessible APIs where they hear about and wire into the other APIs about the world.

Languages have the same mono- focus, the same focus within, while ignoring the challenge the internet has emerged for us- that the real work is to become a pervading system, is to develop a macroscopic, multisystem level of control and orchestration and coordination.

And enjoy enlightenment!

The Verge covers the "alternative ending" to the Matrix trilogy which featured in the 2005 video game, featuring a sit down with two 2d 1-bit Wachowski brother's jointly monologuing the matrix ending that is, and the one that's about to happen. So here's your Matrix condensed reader, and a brief comment on media-forms,

You see at this point Neo stands on the verge of satori,
ready to resolve the paradox of choice and choice-lessness, of free will versus fate,
but that can only be achieved through an act of surrender.
Which occurs after he has abandoned the perspectival nature of truth.
Accepting the totality of present consciousness which ultimately allows an evolutionary transition,
transcending the Cartesian dilemma through the emergence of de-limited spirit,
which then provides the world with the choice of a third path, the path of Neo, the path of peace.

I think what my brother is trying to say is, at this point, it's martyr time.
Now maybe that works in a movie, but in a video game, the Jesus-thing is, well,
Lame
Really lame.

It's a self-perpetuating humor machine, and it is horribly efficient. There is no joke, at least not anymore; whatever joke there was has become an adaptive, joke-like arrangement of circumstances.
http://www.theawl.com/2014/07/the-potato-salad-kickstarter-is-the-science-fiction-villain-we-deserve

The Awl's masterful senseworking with Potatoe Salad is a thing of grandeur. Calling out the forms of humor: Superiority, Relief, and Incongruity Theories of humor, is a great & necessary framing for imagining where humor dwells.

I do think The Awl misses the two relief systems this presents: it's both a relieving mockery of Kickstarter itself, and secondarily it's rewards give us membership in the joke, giving the cause money, heightening the absurdity of the joke.

As of writing, a Kickstarter campaign for "just making potato salad" has raised $37,115. Every few seconds that number climbs higher, and each uptick is greeted

The state of Chile drafted a bill to defend the dignity of authorities and the state: they tried outlawing political memes! It's creator, Jorge Sabag, has withdrawn the bill and apologized for the stupid ass idea.
http://globalvoicesonline.org/2014/07/12/chile-controversial-draft-law-anti-memes-lasted-less-than-24-hours/
A very short life had the controversial anti-meme draft law, announced on Thursday July 10 by Chilean congressman of Christian Democratic Party, Jorge Sabag, as informed on Chilean media. The goal of the prohect was to preserve “authorities’ dignity” on social networks. The project imposed fines for individuals who used...

Slow-going getting the new laptop up-
1. Debian-live build service won't build anything modern, Irc channel dead.
2. Manual for Debian-Live tools wasn't helping.
3. Ran out of hard-drive space using my own pdebuild-cross tools, eventually found/wiped some old VMs
4. Grub is a pita w/r/t installing as were it installing for this system, not a portable install
5. Dell's Venue 11 Pro only has one usb slot, and the docked keyboard doesn't work in Grub. Doesn't boot from a USB storage behind a hub: so I can either usb-boot or have a working keyboard
6. Kernel deb-pkg builds are including 600MB of object files they shouldn't, making a build/install take ~50 minutes
7. Modules I've forgotten to bake in: usb-storage, ext4.

Build #9 is going to be the magic one, I know it!

Really displeased with the relative usability of Debian live. The web-builder has a super nice configuration options that it outputs, and would that there be procedures for ingesting/using that to repeat the procedure, but all in all the docs regarding how/where stuff gets configured I found... difficult to read. There's also a lot of references to a lb_config(1) page which doesn't exist anywhere.

There usually isn't much to say about mediocre tie-in video games, but the ending to 2005's The Matrix: Path of Neo is so spectacularly odd that it's worthy of discussion nearly a decade after its...

Conde Naste posted a semi-gleeful youtube video of them dismantling their data center (AWS ho! it goes), an interesting reversal of what we're used to seeing and celebrating (setting up big data-centers),
