resquiescat in pace homo sapiens sapiens, floreat 200,000 BCE -- 9th March 2016 CE

In the Name of Humanity | Limn
Fascinating. "nothing in history has been able to destroy the idea of the universal library, open for all [...] For the better part of that history, the idea was simply impossible. Today it is simply illegal [...] the total archive is already here. Distributed among millions of hard drives, it already is a de facto common heritage. We are as gods, and might as well get good at it".

Call Me Captain | "Your generation would probably ‘livetweet’ the apocalypse..."
This is true, and wise, and beautiful, and it resonates strongly with me. If you're reading this far down, whomever and wherever you are, I love you. You are my tribe.
