Moxie Marlinspike wrote an interesting piece on web3. I very much disagree with his take on centralization. He restates it again here. He claims no one ever wants to run a server. ... my home server disagrees with you, Moxie.
He does a good job here exploring web3 tech without any buzz words, and he has a gooddepth of knowledge in cryptography. If you want more of a skeptical technical overview of web3 I think it's a good read.

I made a lil N-gram-based phrase generator in ! You can check it out here: lambein.xyz/phrase-generator/

A few samples, based on a LOTR dataset:

- Isles Of Bow-Helm's Doom
- Mount Door
- Gondon
- Durin's Tower Of Durin's House Of The East Farth

If you try it out, share with me your favourite samples :>

Also, if you think of a good corpus to add to it, let me know!

A big thing that's been stopping me from going vegan is that I was trying to imitate the taste of animal products, instead of accepting that it wasn't always possible.

Once I realised that, I could let go of cow milk in tea and actually enjoy oat milk tea for what it is: a different drink.

I had no problem doing that with meat, but for some reason it's been much harder with milk in tea, and with eggs.

my weird lil DAW is coming along nicely, i'm hoping to start making some music now :>

Did the first AOC in as a learning exercise. Only took me six hours 🙃

tried to make a cute oscilloscope for a project I'm working on

Today I built a smol CLI time-tracking tool: github.com/xlambein/temps

Was fun to make something with a very small scope like this, as opposed to the massive, never-ending projects I usually work on 🙃
