@o_guest@twitter.com "No end in sight" he put on that slide, obscuring, with the confidence of a Vegas magician, supply chain, mineral extraction, labor and the very real possibility that a civilization battered by climate change will have no resources for sustained research projects.

@o_guest@twitter.com I love this kind of stuff. In 1958, the New York Times reported on the work of Rosenblatt on perceptrons as "the embryo of an electronic computer that [the Navy] expects will be able to walk, talk, see, write, reproduce itself and be conscious of its existence.”

in the neutral fiction world, a crisis is a crisis, interrupting the norm. in our world, crisis is an inherent, and necessary, result of capitalism. we're always building to the next bust. "crisis coming" reads "business as usual" to the ones causing the crisis

TBH not just media... nobody wants to talk about what we'll do and they seem to say unhinged things like "but we'll be fine". I don't see how. 😶‍🌫️

I think the one thing that apocalyptic fiction has left me unprepared for is just how uninterested the news media would be in an actual apocalypse. bylinetimes.com/2022/05/26/un-

I'm in the position to help a first draft of what an RSE career path in Norway might look like at the university level. Aiming at describing a career path "akin" to the lecturer/assoc. prof/prof path, but for 's.

Any resources I should look at?

there are two "revenge" fics about amber heard on @ao3org@twitter.com. one of them has amber being explicitly tortured & mauled to death by johnny, and the other is about her getting "punished" by a movie producer slapping her & calling her names during rough sex. i'm actually sick.
