my last thought before going unconscious yesterday was "because we have passed peak software, it is destructive to produce additional application contexts, because they only foster more software -- software that runs software that runs software."
my project `dat-gateway` has been in an infuriating state of flux for many months because it is an application context.
"a gateway? an application context? what?" you say, like a reasonable human being.
i reject that websites should be applications, or that we should be building additional application contexts. software is SO BAD and feeding the monster won't fix it. all we want to do is share files, anyway.
software griping, purpose of radical software
software is capital. software saves labor, and under capitalism all labor saved is labor disenfranchised. software produced for money almost invariably reproduces capital's power. you wanna know what software can do instead? remember aaron schwartz. loot the digitarium and never let them kill you for it.
