A few years ago, I built four eight-foot-long handwriting robots.

quote [ Our first year we wrote the same note on every letter, because generating handwriting is tough.
On and off over the next year (2018), I played with handwriting generation.
We started writing labels.
12 labels to a sheet, 7 sheets per robot side, 8 robot sides... A *lot* of unattended runtime! ]

I have no words about this maker's rabbit hole.

Against Little Free Libraries

quote [ Maybe the solution is to fight for library services in underserved neighborhoods and expect less from Amazon-inclined households in the first place. Radical librarians have other complaints about Little Free Library: the colonialism implied in sending cast-off books around the world, the eyebrow-raising suggestion in Little Free Library?s literature that ?stewards? not seed their exchanges with political or religious texts. ]

Radical Canadian librarian arguments from 2017. Thumb is university degree distribution in Canada.

A Brief History & Ethos of the Digital Garden

quote [ Gardening is about claiming a small patch of the web for yourself, one you fully own and control.
This patch should not live on the servers of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram (aka. also Facebook), or Medium. None of these platforms are designed to help you slowly build and weave personal knowledge. Most of them actively fight against it. ]

Many good examples ?I would have preferred a shorter argument, but ?this writeup is already kind of its own garden.
