I don’t count on them. I’m boring Internet Archive has it as their mission so they will try. Companies like FB and Google I don’t trust (which is why I have http://icopiedyou.com – as I’ve had my past wiped before).
And for govt? having worked a bit in and with, they’re no better than any corporate structure, individuals scrambling for temporary relevence and promotion.
idiots or power hungry are usually in charge. My rule of thumb (heuristic): Anybody who wants power probably should not get it.
I avoided dealing with politics beyond voting (generic sense of civic duty – Boy Scouts) ’til about 2014.
At that point, I took the Political Compass test and declared:
“Ok. I did it. Now I’m back to no politics”.
That was 2014.
Earth Day, 2015, I declared myself President of Earth.
Google thought so too for 9 months. It was fun. I’m still President. I ask nothing of anybody. Just do as you do.
Well, I show up way over here. Took it 3x. 2014. 2016 2018,
Took others too but of this one, only 3x. I only move a tiny bit each time so I was consistent for a 4 yr period. Good enough to trust it as my bias.
My collective is already here. I don’t understand fighting for dirt.
S President, I am bound by minimal interfering. BUT in my personal role, I have activated.
USA? Bah. It’s been heading towards austerity for years now. This is an acceleration. My focus is Earth. Why?
a) I give my opinions freely as if I am President of Earth and believe that the world would be better if everybody just listened to me.
This makes that official. I am Earth President.
b) Space is limited to humans right now and I will only exist online after 2019-2060(ish) and as the Intergalactic Computer Network (J.C.R. Licklider, 1963) can BARELY gets its dark side of the moon internet connection stable, I’m focusing on where I’ll probably be.
Johnny Appleseed is one of the archetypes I follow so..
Summarizing is my problem. A BIG problem.
That’s why I had an AI go through my writings to find patterns.
I have a categorization problem and an editing problem.
I thought the thesaurus I made by crosslinking a thesaurus with itself would help. Nope. Sat on it for a year and just published the junk. Free on internet archive – not worth $$.
Time is my other main issue. Results of my DDC analysis of about 9500+ of my writings over 27 years and THIS is what I most write about in a way that matches with academic papers:
120 Epistemology, causation & humankind
Not much is written about it in papers and it’s a shame as knowing your own pace is crucial to being a well-adjusted individual. Your own tempo. World has overlapping paces and tries to pull you in, push you out, mangle your music up.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQvcpAG682E I did a 12m ramble to confirm what I’d discovered on testing my piano playing speed.
I suspected it would match 270 bpm or a multiple or division and it does, confirmed by a random backbeat I found that was at 90 bpm and added afterwards.
Music only sounds cohesive because I found a match to my speaking rate which was indeed related to 270 bpm.
270bpm is my piano playing happy speed – triplets at 270 bpm. I could say it’s 810 bpm but that’s not really true as they exist as triplets and not as individual notes.
Words I say there doesn’t matter. It’s just train of thought and I’m not good at that.
Funniest for me is Google was convinced I was President of Earth for about 9 months.
But I had to spoil it as the US cycle was getting super dirty and I didn’t want anybody knocking on my door.
