So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.

How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: patreon.com/cwebber

Wish me luck. More updates soon.

"I can tell you upfront, [blockchain]’s a bizarre journey to nowhere. I’ve never seen so much incomprehensible jargon to describe so little. I’ve never seen so much bloated bombast fall so flat on closer inspection. And I’ve never seen so many people searching so hard for a problem to go with their solution."

SWI-Prolog has a nice thread over on birdsite listing larger Prolog applications: twitter.com/PrologSwi/status/1

Oh wow, this SRFI draft changed a lot since the last time I checked. It's much more Schemey (Schematic?) and flexible now. I'm glad they decided not to directly incorporate Clojure's arrows and went for the more traditional (albeit slightly unwieldy) cut/cute syntax with multiple values instead.
