๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Ik zie toenemende corona-skepsis en wantrouwen in de wetenschap. Dit baart mij zorgen en ik heb er daarom maar een opiniestukje over geschreven:

Nou, ik ga het er vanavond maar eens lekker van nemen en na 21:00 de container buiten zetten...

SXMO 1.3.0, your favourite minimalistic/suckless desktop environment for smartphones like the pinephone, has been released and is available in postmarketOS:

Google has suspended Element (@matrix) from the Play Store for "Sexual Content and Profanity". Basically same story as with Subway Tooter a while back. Element is to Matrix as Chrome is to the web. Curiously, Chrome is still on the Play Store.

๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Altijd leuk als Maarten van Rossum aan tafel zit bij , ben het ook zeer met 'm eens dat we ons niet zo op Amerika moeten blind staren maar meer om ons heen kijken in Europa, naar bv. Duitsland.

I had to get some things out of my system after this week's storm of the Capitol, all the disinformation that incited the mob, the neglect in the face of a global pandemic (that we also see here), so I wrote a blog post: The Disinformation Age

After a few days of work, my new simplified homepage is launched! I migrated from hugo, which I found too bloated and complex, to zola. I also removed all external assets and scripts so everything is now javascript free and self-hosted:

I'm starting to see why there are so many static site generators out there... none seems to do exactly what I want (and not too much more than that either). Recommendations anyone?

I regret having made my homepage with hugo two years ago :( It's already become needlessly complex and doesn't build anymore with the latest version, I should have settled on a more minimal generator and theme.

I just discovered that the word "ansible", taken as a name by the automation/provisioning software from RedHat, was actually invented by sci-fi writer Ursula Le Guin! I just finished her book "The Dispossessed" (recommended!), in which the term is used for an instantaneous/faster-than-light communication device.

Sxmo 1.2.0 is released! This is a minimalist and 'suckless' UI for Linux phones such as the pinephone. This release introduces some major changes. Make sure to read the upgrade notes and view the demo video!

We've been watching "The Man in the High Castle" these past weeks, a dystopian series where the nazis and japanese won WW2. I first read the book (by Philip K. Dick) and then I discovered there was a whole TV series!

Don't know who the author is, but these are absolutely brilliant. The longer you look the more disturbing it gets.

Ironically, though I do speak four latin languages, I don't really speak latin... I guess it should be "Sum Doctorus" right? stays in the nominative...
