Searle's Chinese Room as a parable of IT project management

@mike i used to work on lt bourke, it was pretty hectic during the rebel wilson defamation case

there was some downtime there, sorry about that. auspol.cafe is back now, though :toot:

@futzle i'm listening to embassytown at the moment, and it's really good! can't put this one down either 😱

i don't know a lot about smart watches, are there any that let you install a face you developed on them? the biggest apple watch letdown is that they've never let us do this

Congrats to the FastMail folks for helping modernize and secure email comms for the 21st century.

We’re making email more modern with JMAP

The specifications for JMAP Email have been published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), marking a big victory for email tools now and in the future.

i went to the dentist this morning, got a filling in. now half my mouth is numb and doing absolutely anything is weird

had to get a bump removed from my back today. now lying in bed putting pressure on the stitches 😱

hopefully the thing's benign but i'll find out next week

@futzle i haven't seen it yet! been meaning to but just haven't gotten around to it. keen to get into the rest of his stuff

@uxintro @koosli @pelagikat that's why i have an audible subscription, easy to listen to book and toot :toot:

reading (listening? it's an audiobook) a book by china mieville called "perdido street station", it's really really good. i don't usually read weird fiction but i really enjoyed "the city and the city" by china and decided to read the rest of his stuff.

my stomach has never lurched so much from an audiobook before, the visuals are incredible. can't put it down (pause it? it's an audiobook)
