Summer solstice Summer solstice It’s still black, it’s still black Summer solstice
Millions Set to Swelter is my new dark wave band.
How NYC now operates: There will be a store called La Sporquerie that sells sporks but they don’t have any sporks, that’s just the showroom where you can make a reservation to visit the Soho location, but you can’t have a reservation, instead you should kill yourself.
The play has been unleashed in me. twitter.com/azalben/status…
Me after watching Lightyear.
I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that Lightyear is about sandwich ontology.

A Google engineer thinks the company’s chatbot is sentient. That’s a dark indicator of where we’re headed, writes @ibogost: theatlantic.com/technology/arc…

🎂 Exciting news! 13 years ago I wrote the first comprehensive essay on 'Design Fiction' blog.nearfuturelaboratory.com/2009/03/17/des…9). Shortly our book on the topic — 'The Manual of Design Fiction' — will be published! (Paper ordered. Presses inked and warming up!) nearfuturelaboratory.myshopify.com/products/the-m…6).

A Google engineer became convinced that a software program was sentient after asking the program, which was designed to respond credibly to input, whether it was sentient. A recursive just-so story. theatlantic.com/technology/arc…
This ‘sentient’ AI story has gotten unforgivably large amounts of attention, and I guess I’m adding to it, but just to say: A computer guy got bewitched by a creative work, and that would have been sweet had it not been so stupid—or bode such ill. theatlantic.com/technology/arc…
“Is that Freedom Rock, man?” “No, it is not.”
Can’t believe we swapped “hope you get the USB the right way up the first time” for “hope you have the randomly correct amperage power brick that didn’t come with your device.”
Ah I see we’ve entered the “Your love language is your favorite thing with -flation appended” phase.
Starting to get “welcome to the Bear Market” emails from my mortgage broker and dentist, like it’s my birthday.
Good morning, do you see the hamburger?
It’s holding a donette.
Okay fine vitalism is okay.
Gah, remember this?
Nobody wants this.
"the coveted Saarinen Table"
You can't hear it but there's bossa nova piping through my mixer.
Look, this is just how life is now.
We’re graduated to a “just leave the peanut butter out on the counter, lid off, knife stuck in, at all times” family.
I keep telling you
I get how Murphy doors are cool but “Give dad a drunk creeper prison” is maybe not the intended message.
I've been using Pihole for a while but I think I'm going to have to give it up because it just seems too erratic to rely on as a centerpoint of my network. Is there an alternative?
Am I doing this right?
I just don’t understand how we’re supposed to fit these huge new switches with all their wire-nutted wires into normal electrical boxes.
I don't know who might need this, but I didn't know such a device existed and it's quite useful. bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1521…
A designer insisting they do User Experience Design is a bit like a financier winking as they sell you Fraudless Banking or something.
