Got a new [[asus]] [[zenbook]] My display drivers were wonky when I was running [[kubuntu]] so I installed [[manjaro]] it seems to be working better now

I made a [[zulip]] instance for discussing [[agora]] stuff

I'm mulling over ideas on how to extend [[rational disscusion and decision making]] since that is a stated goal of the [[agora]] on the flancia website

proprietary projects own your mind share! even open source ones do, but proprietary are the worst - the more you invest in a technology and specialize in a particular implementation, the more that tool has mind share over your actions.

alternatively, building universally applicable skills, generalizeable tools or software independent of corporations is incredibly powerful - you can keep that knowledge around regardless of the ecosystem you're investing in because you learned in principle, not in practice. this is the motivation for research, for System F and type theory over specific language implmentations, for understanding the big picture - as this can never be stolen from you. using tools that are so abstract is incredibly dangerous, and that's sort of the truth in everything about computer science - but by abstracting them at a theoretical level and working with generalizeable ideas rather than specific technologies, you'll never really be trapped by an employer.
