Capitalism doesn't innovate. People do. Capital simply appropriates human innovation, and organizes it as much as possible around servicing the interests of capital accumulation.

really good piece from @mckenziewark about how we organize/think about thought & why. wish most of our conversations were about this, as unknowingly they almost invariably are. Freaky Realism: Michael Taussig's <em>Palma Africana</em>

Rather than assume evolutionary missteps like overload, why not assume optimization of coordination in a tight space. Isn’t this Leroi-Gourhan’s argument in Gesture and Speech?

The face is an overloaded structure that handles respiration, sensation, communication, and signaling via things like expressions, all while bearing the burden of resembling some expressions and beauty standards when at rest. Carry on, then

Another inefficient contraption! Adapting a quadruped robot from @instructables: it’s now a scribbling machine powered by a #microbit + bit:buddy. Thanks @TinkeringStudio, @lectrifyit, & @ken_hawthorn for the inspiration! #MakerEd #STEM #tinkering @MSMakeCode @microbit_edu

The fact that vampires are parasitic aristocrats who can live off inherited wealth (and interest rates) for centuries without doing any work is literally the most realistic part of supernatural lore. I mean, look at the House of Lords or Harvard legacy admissions.

I’ve been thinking lately about the phrase “playing with fire” and how it’s not always so clear where the edges of play are. This article, while oddly referencing Carse’s idea of “infinite games,” lays out the challenge nicely.

Are we stuck in a broken game? @maxhaiven, @DrAKomporozos, and @atkingsmith consider how video games might possess an antidote to modern conspiracy fantasies.

Last week, I wrote about why regulating Facebook’s algo or breaking the company up doesn’t solve the problem of megascale: And about why the “metaverse,” Facebook’s apparent rebrand, is just a different fantasy of power:

While it is clear that the threat of quicksand was vastly exaggerated, against all expectations I have not outgrown the threat of library fines.

The problem isn't that 10 million jobs are open, it's that 40% of homeless people are employed.

Woke people want you fighting a culture war instead of a class war. That's why it's important to fight against wokeness until it is defeated

As someone who sidestepped education’s career tracks by hiding in philosophy, then escaped philosophy’s by studying education, then resisted education’s by doing art, and then spoiled art’s by doing philosophy, I can tell you it’s all in good fun. God speed.

something that bad tweet made me realize is that when rich people say 'you could afford a house if you stopped going out to eat' they are thinking about how much they spend going out to eat: almost 5k a month.
