"For unlike someone devoted to the life of contemplation, a total worker takes herself to be primordially an agent standing before the world, which is construed as an endless set of tasks extending into the indeterminate future."

A bunch of you (mostly those with white collar jobs) should read this and consider how close you are to the sort of ideology this article discusses. I think it'll feel uncomfortable, but may help motivate you toward new opinions.

from OP:

The burden character of total work, then, is defined by ceaseless, restless, agitated activity, anxiety about the future, a sense of life being overwhelming, nagging thoughts about missed opportunities, and guilt connected to the possibility of laziness. Hence, the taskification of the world is correlated with the burden character of total work. In short, total work necessarily causes dukkha, a Buddhist term referring to the unsatisfactory nature of a life filled with suffering. PSA, domain blocks 

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

Recent YouTube discovery: a perfect blend of synthwave and metal.


What was the first creative work with a public domain dedication? 

Here's a #question for you fedizens interested in #decentralisation and media distribution: is there a solution to do a #livestream (of audio or video) in a decentralised way, kind of like #Webtorrent but to broadcast, say, a #DJ mix or #radio show? Everyone who is listening is also a relay for the data. I can see that as something really empowering for people who want to #broadcast in a scalable way but are limited by their bandwidth and the gamble of renting a server. (boost appreciated)

My first actual guitar+bass track. I am somewhat satisfied with how it sounds, but I also want to get on better terms with these two instruments.

Inspired by the project, I have a project: Picking a couple sketches from my vast backlog of rough demos and developing them towards more fully produced songs.

I am still at the "picking songs" stage.

The toughest part right now is facing my resistance. But I started to look at some parts of my backlog.

Hello, world.
