Welcome to the future with 50y old technology. There is an obscure emacs extension, swank js, that runs a nodejs daemon that speaks slime to emacs.

It allows you to work with js the same way you'd work with lisp, evaling lines or buffers into a live nodejs instance.

I use it (in combination with org-babel) to talk to live instances of remote services, to inspect data, experiment, but also as kind of an on-the-fly UI

It allows you to inject js into a browser as well, handy for js dev or even on the fly data scraping/web manipulation. Super useful yet not very well known.

here is a quick elisp code to make it run with livescript

Are you having trouble falling asleep during conversations?

Are you in a disco, finding in hard to focus on computer programming?

I have a solution for you, just pop one of these babies in. http://lesh.sysphere.org/dump/weirdforest.mp3

Its a sound that I made that I play when I need to focus and zone out. It has some rain, weird thunder, owls, someone shuffling sticks around and whale noises of course.

I guess it will sound a bit ominous at first but it grows on you

I feel like people aren't freaking out enough about how awesome it is that big universities are publishing their lectures online, some of my favorite ones are

Justice, Michael Sandel (Harward)

Human Behavioral Biology, Sapolsky (Stanford)

I turned these into podcasts that you can download here

about behavioral biology letures, in order to fall in love with Sapolsky, check his short talk on toxoplasmosis parasite

Also, I think his lecture on biological underpinnings of religiosity that is a part of this course is not in the playlist, I think because its pretty controversial, you can find it as an old recording here

will add more stuff to this folder with time.

I've been hoping to write this for a while, its not a very exciting project so I've been working on this when I'm tired.

its a bit unusual, nodejs-blosxom, ~400 lines of coffescript. this is very much a work in progress, I'd advise you to use it as inspiration more then as a code you run. templates related to my own homepage are included in the repo. might move them laters.

features

  • each post is a markdown file (maybe I should check out ORG mode files?)
  • posts are in a git repo, so they can be written offline and synced with the web later
  • I wanted something like google plus circles, with restricted tags for particular people
  • implicit tagging by placement .md posts in folders
  • explicit tagging/metadata for a particular post by adding a JSON line as a first line in a file
  • tag filtering
  • no javascript on the clientside
  • rss for arbitrary tag combination

immediate todo

  • full set operations on tags
  • think about collapsing large posts when they are initially displayed..
  • also, don't render ALL matching posts, do the next/prev button thing.
  • saving of blog post metadata JSON back to files
  • color private tags differently
  • wiki (some way to link to other posts or tags (just extend the markdown?))

things to figure out

  • something super light for image galleries, I want to rsync images.. might implement this myself. flickr doesn't suck anymore, might hook into flickr?
  • I want to extend the markdown renderer in order to be able to include things like youtube videos or my own images/galleries
  • social network publishing - ifttt.com - I'll just use the rss.

at some point

  • implement tag equalities and implications, for example music is always audio but audio is not always music, audio is always sound though.
  • posts that are related to geographical location + geo search/map display.. I'd use this to mark interesting places, track trip progress and such
