Driving through town today, stopped at a traffic light and a FREAKING HUGE HARRIER HAWK swooped down and landed on top of a building. I was on my way to the nature reserve to meet friends for walking so I had my good camera on me :D

That's great, and I totally support people doing that. It's part of the solution. But what do you do when the Australian government charges you under anti-terrorism laws for refusing to back door the software you're developing with the territory they claim jurisdiction over? Technical solutions will no survive without political organizing to support them.

Many an investigative journalist can put a reader off in the autobiography and justifications of their early pages and this is no exception. Patrick is a former policeman and his style is eccentric in places. Still, Carol Cadwalldr was right to talk up Patrick's work, originally published by Byline byline.com/

Crowd-funded and published through a tiny publishing house, J. J. Patrick's Alternative War explains a great deal that is not being discussed relating to the election of Donald Trump and Brexit. If some of this was better known and being discussed, cancelling Brexit would likely be mainstream. greyharemedia.com/alternative-

Siri how do I uncouple my self worth from my productivity?

Also, writing. I tend to live that. It is probably enough of an answer in itself. I have dumped everything else to do that for a while. It's probably important, but it feels like I'm dumping everything else.

Very stressed right now. Could be Brexit and everything it means. Could be approaching 40 and still feeling marginal and underemployed with no clear way out. Could be that I am working on several things, any of which could be a success in and of their own terms without delivering anything in the way of financial stability. Could be a lot of things. Could be Christmas. I may be debugging a while yet. Whatever, I'm a nightmare to live with right now.

Hey, #Plume now has a dedicated website: joinplu.me!

It is far from perfect, but at least it exists, and can help people discovering the project. If you have any idea to improve it, feel free to tell me, or to report it on Github: github.com/Plume-org/joinplu.m

The documentation has also moved to docs.joinplu.me

And I also adapted @funkwhale's contribution page to Plume to make it easier to contribute for newcomers: contribute.joinplu.me

In summary (so far):

When you're writing code, don't forget that one of the people who might end up using it, one of the people you need to write docs for, is you. Specifically, a version of you 3-5 years from now who has no memory or idea of what you were thinking when you wrote it.
