In reply to: Smoke Has Blotted Out the Sun in São Paulo as the Amazon Burns
What began as a “day of fire” a week and a half ago has now turned daytime skies in São Paulo an inky black. The Amazon has been in deep, deep trouble ever since far-right president Jair Bolsnaro took over running Brazil. Advocates feared his regime would commit ecological “genocide” in the Amazon and with each passing month, those fears are becoming reality.
Snoozing with the limbless monkey.
Today was relatively laid back at work so, I thought it would be interesting to spend the day in Acme, Plan9’s text editor.
While I absolutely love emacs, I’m absolutely blown away by Acme. The interface is unlike anything else that I’ve ever used, but, at the same time, wicked quick to pick-up. There are a few niceties that other text editors offer that Acme doesn’t…but it is so easily extensible that I bet I could bake in what I want with an afternoon of fiddling.
I am excited to continue exploring Plan9 and Acme, and think I’m going to spend another day in it tomorrow!

The key insight was to stop trying to build a mechanical carriage, and instead build something more like a mechanical horse.
