The personal blog of Sven Seebeck

Just learned about Riot.im, Matrix and it’s decentralized platform. This looks very interesting. Will have have to set up an account soon as it looks like the answer to my messaging problems. I’m mildly optimistic, but then again thought that before.

I had to force myself to put the book away at 3 o’clock a.m. last night and instead finished reading Cory Doctorow’s Homeland in the morning. It’s just like Little Brother a very captivating and educating book. Looking forward to the third installment (Attack Surface) in the series.

Over the weekend I made myself a bootable Ubuntu thumbdrive via the terminal and revived an otherwise unsuable 12 year old MacBook installing Ubuntu on it. Now I’m tempted to run Linux on my main laptop as well, something that I haven’t done in about 15 years.

One of our daughters’ birthday wishes had been a Frozen-cake and my wife had made an awesome one!

I know I’m late to the game, but I finished reading Cory Doctorows Information doesn’t want to be free yesterday and it had been a very interesting and eye-opening read and I learned many new things in the process. Highly recommended.

Happy to notice that the new novel in the Murderbot Diaries” series, Mass Effect, by Martha Wells had been released. This is going to be a fun read.
