I've been very annoyed by the fire that brought down the OVH data centre in Strasbourg this morning. As we just migrated our production reverse proxy there last month 😕 I did spend some time to recover the service elsewhere, but now I realize some Engineer and CTO must be in a very dark place tonight:

Our reverence for leadership is a relic from the time we lacked the means to scale non-hierarchical communication and decision-making. Today, with our destructive capabilities, handing the reins to those with the strongest drive for domination is a surefire recipe for extinction.

Reading Low Tech Magazine's Solar Powered Website is very calming.

I could (and have) read this for hours at a stretch. Every time I spend an hour or so reading this site, I come away filled with optimism and inspiration and a way of thinking that's altered for the better, which lasts for days.

Not many websites give me those feelings. In fact right now I'm noticing how many websites do the opposite.

A future where we truly own our content and can leave centralised platforms of any kind. I’d be happy to help should you want to try. The future is decentralised IMHO. 2/2
