ultimately, the thing that makes me feel most disgusted with the whole web3/NFT thing is going from "getting money is a survival thing we kinda just need to do" to "money is inherently good and we just need to maximize greed"

Feeling good about the site updates I made this weekend. My feed is set up and with RSS making a comeback I'm here for it!

If I wanted to make a site (or an internet) where anyone could create a page and every page was editable. What are the main editing models I could use?

- page creator has to approve edits (probably more system than I want to create)
- version control so you can go back through each version of a page (doable but I bet people rarely go back much)
- edits automatically create a new page (fork). maybe my top pick but new forks aren't necessarily discoverable.

Anything else I should be looking at?

Next few days I'm thinking of doing more generative code stuff and shipping to repo, get back into the groove of things

I tend to build things that I enjoy playing with. Here's a new flower I generated with my FlowerMaker game/tool. To make this, I left my comfort zone and learned more about CSS and the amazing twitter.com/css_doodle You can make your own flowers with my Flower Maker artatomic.itch.io/flowermaker

Happy New Year! January 1st is Public Domain day in the United States. All film, books, poetry, photos, and scores originally published in 1926 are now in the Public Domain in the US. Additionally, and significantly, this year marks the first time that any Audio Recordings have entered the public domain. You, and all Americans, now own more than 400,000 of these historic recordings. What does it all mean? And which works are in the public domain now?

a good way to keep painting when you are art blocked is to practice color mixing

Interesting:

* {
box-sizing: border-box;
}

Doesn’t apply it to ::before and ::after pseudoelements. You have to specifically declare it again for those. e.g.,

.someClass::before {
box-sizing: border-box;
}

Oh forgot to attach this meme!

The joke is that CSS has a principle, unlike most other design tools, that ugliness is better than illegibility. So if you make a box too small to fit it's text...
