> Meanwhile, a tiny handful of Americans have grown obscenely, surreally, bizarrely rich. Bezos, Gates, and Buffett are worth more than the entire US education budget — each. Wait — a person that’s worth more than how much a society invests in all its kids?
This is How a Civilization Collapses (https://eand.co/this-is-how-a-civilization-collapses-c3d9f113b4cd)
I just learned about gemini:// and it looks super interesting! I've used Gopher in the past and I miss it, and last year I was thinking we could implement a new protocol just for Markdown text files — Gemini is very similar to that, from what I understand.
I'm going to add Gemini support for my custom blog engine (https://github.com/betodealmeida/nefelibata) using https://github.com/makeworld-the-better-one/md2gemini and https://github.com/michael-lazar/jetforce.
I use https://hoppy.network/ so that the Raspi can have a real IP address, for a total cost of $8/month.
The external HD is used for remote backups for my laptop (my main computer) using Duplicity. This replaced and old HP microserver that I used as a NAS.
For home automation I've developed Señor Octopus (https://github.com/betodealmeida/senor-octopus). I use it to control my lights, collect data from sensors, monitor air quality and much more.
I use Apache Superset (https://github.com/apache/superset/) to visualize the data.
🎤 I am planning to make some videos testing various audio interfaces with Linux, focusing on "bedroom producers". 🎵
However - I need YOU to answer a few questions before I can begin my work.
Your input will help me choose devices to buy. Please take some time to research the options - there's a lot that you may have not heard about, that could present great value.
PS: Feel free to boost this toot :)
I work on Apache Superset (https://github.com/apache/superset/) for a living, building an open source web application for business intelligence and data exploration/visualization. Lately I've been putting a lot of love on Shillelagh (https://github.com/betodealmeida/shillelagh), a Python library for accessing APIs via SQL.
