Sometimes I think my life is a weird mix of duct-taping software together with deep dives into network programming, bursts of CTFs and uh applied infosec, mixed with educating my friends about outlaw biker gangs.

It's a good life.

Good thoughts from Tumblr (not by me):

"If courage isn’t the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn’t the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real worth despite it"

"By this same token, maybe goodness isn’t the absence of bad thoughts or impulses, but the conscious choice to behave according to your moral ideals in spite of them."

Neural networks harness the power inherent in light to perform recognition on handwritten digit by embedding the framework in glass.

This is astounding.

to build the future we want, we need the innovators, we need the entrepreneurs, we need the visionaries, we need all these boring and despicable people to go to the fuck off place.

Wanna know a secret? I have no idea what Faceapp is. Is it WhatsApp? Is it Facetime? Is it something else? I've no clue, and that delights me. Please don't tell me.

Incoming ramble about my use of Mastodon, will CW.

TL, DR: I'm not going anywhere, just refreshing how I am on here, as I've changed from being on here, and want to reflect that.

oh yeah um hey today's my traniversary. more thoughts on that tomorrow but like, thanks to all of you. 💙❤️

At dinner tonight, I'm like 90% the guy at the table next to me was trying to join a polycule with the other guys at the table, but it was structured VERY much like a job interview. Like I thought it was a job interview from the postures and cadence but I'd hear snippets of answers that revolved around managing jealousy and sexual exploration and I just don't know what kind of job would find those skills relevant.

We are stories we tell ourselves
to feel real. I give myself a name
and walk like a woman, I speak of
the future as if it happens. I eat
food and decompose and dress in costumes
other people make.
I do not wish to be a tragedy, the shape of my
skin spells out a future
lined with moonless nights
and days of fire. I wish to tell a story
of how to drink the ocean
one night at a time.
