I find that I can vaguely amusing 100% of the day and I love standup comedy...

So I thought maybe I can give it a shot with a youtube channel? I already invent a cool personality - think Dirk Gently in computer science setting;)

If that seems cool to you shoot me an email, or reply in this thread ... I need to the count to have a rough estimate of how low the size of my initial audience is..

I would at least check it out :)

Just to give you an example of my raw output...

Are you not getting tired of this hopelessly boring OpenSource scene?
All these 50 shades of JS framework, series. The long and dull re-runs of all of the web server framework shows. A clone of this! A copy of that but in Lua compiled to down to shell script. I hope the guys are giggling to themselves and this is all not serious in any way. Won't like to offend people, right? Wrong. I do not care really if something is fundamentally a copy I call it boring, despite it maybe have some interesting qualities.

With that in mind I'd rather see people flex their brains on hard problems. Challenges! Just because the hardware is so fast you you can actually compile Lua to Shell script that transpiles itself to JavaScript starts the to show rainbows and ponies (with optional web assembly ray-tracing backend, that however is only supported on Chrome or Firefox, whatever).

I'm talking about real work folks. Like how many interesting things can you pack in 32 bit machine word? Are you done making that list of yours? What about it being agnostic to Big / Little Endian issues when read from octet stream?
Oh, gets more interesting doesn't it? How about adding a checksum of sorts, you know count the bits do some bitwise magic to validate the result in order to detect 1 bit of error creeping in during the transfer? How it looks if we print the octets as ASCII? Should keep my terminal settings intact at least when I pipe it in accidentally ... I could go on and on, but I'd prefer people to find the things they like the most obviously.

Okay, it quickly gets out of hand and I need to get back to work I think.

I would check it out.
I also think quite a lot of people could watch it.
Depending on what it looks like when it is finished.
If it should have a teaching aspect, you would need to collect the sources and information into the video description.

I’m going to describe the way I do creative work and try to capture this fleeting moment of me discovering something new.

I have started my own company as of 1 day ago. I have no idea where I will be in one year with that but sure as hell I’m having fun and I have an array of ambitious projects already in the works. I want to explore what a Holistic Computer Scientist at work looks like. The whole idea of doing funny, maybe even silly things that all eventually prove to be completely nessasary. Which is the key part of  Dirk Gently experience - whatever you decide to do - it will have meaning even if it will only be clear long after the fact.

Just in case - if you have lot of cash on your hands and no idea on where to invest (these days it takes a blood while to figure it out)... Glow labs is a new R&D company run by a guy you probably know due to past DConf and stuff.

I’m doing my own ICO with my own coin, and it’s more like strong collectible even in case I’m broke(!) digital obligation thing. I believe that is the future of digital currency, in fact I’m living in that future but it gets kind lonely here...

Contact me if that’s something you can relate to ... Maybe

BTW for those of us who can’t do google search with a single click because of poor browser integration with the ecosystem, it’s this stuff:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirk_Gently_(TV_series)

It’s hilarious. Monthy Python  is classic and all, but this stuff - totally insane and incredibly long chains of jokes, just what I like in humor the most...

And I’m too lame to figure out how do you open a brand channel on youtube. Anyone did that before? Was it that hard? Hope there is blood ritual involved, I expect anything now that I wasted 20 minutes and I’m only getting close to open it.

YT UX is silly. On top of that the whole site is crippled with incredible bugs.
