In reply to: Tech issues: The myth of inevitable technological progress - Vox

Technologists’ desire to make a parallel to evolution is flawed at its very foundation. Evolution is driven by random mutation — mistakes, not plans. (And while some inventions may indeed be the result of mishaps, the decision of a company to patent, produce, and market those inventions is not.) Evolution doesn’t have meetings about the market, the environment, the customer base. Evolution doesn’t patent things or do focus groups. Evolution doesn’t spend millions of dollars lobbying Congress to ensure that its plans go unfettered.

Additionally, the goal of this project is to be as self-contained as possible. With a copy of this project, a capable and creative person should be able to manage to build and install Collapse OS without external resources (i.e. internet) on a machine of her design, built from scavenged parts with low-tech tools.

Creepy crawlers. Wooly woods.

Noodle is a teeny tiny tool that lets you draw in the browser. Controls aren’t all that discoverable, but once you decipher the invisible UI it is an excellent little toy!

Try clicking and dragging around. Use the numbers 0 - 9 on your keyboard to toggle brush/line types.

I made some gnarly vegan wings out of eggplant this evening. Highly recommend. Gotta write down a recipe, but I winged it…get it. wing

As we make decisions on the futures of our cities—on the future of our transportation systems that will move people across the space but also bring them together to understand one another—we need to re-think what a city should look like, what purpose it should serve.

A very cool little tool to make mind maps in the browser! Wicked calm. Very elegant. Do recommend.
