Hot take: was a ploy all along to get people using as a datastore. CRDs are the new database and all the other features of kubernetes were actually a trick to get people using etcd.

We desperately need alternatives to big tech and vc funding.

Co-ops need to be easier to build and fund. We need to get more info out there about how they work. They're really not as inaccessible as you might think.

Yesterday's thing is more a concept piece than a song I think. Tim Burton-ish? It needs a LOT more work.

Missed another yesterday, and today's is rushed (scuffed might be a better term). Slow and raw. Prompt: Dawn

So my song today developed a Paul Simon kinda vibe, which, well, I was listening to Edie Brickell this morning!

This track started out with the chord progression from "Autumn Leaves", and got gradually more "sting"y, I think... The prompt was "Leaves"

I actually streamed the process of making my song today (prompt was "Phone call"), so if you're interested in how I do it, there's a 3 hour VOD at twitch.tv/videos/1178319381 (I'll move it somewhere more accessible soon)
