Hi! Name’s Stephen. Some of y’all miiiiiiiiiight know me as “Sage Freehaven”. Furry, bi White guy, not sure about much of anything else beyond that. I dabble in pixel art and writing from time to time (read: not often enough). Testing the waters here after the snouts.online situation.
Y’all be good to each other, ’kay? 👋

You never expect to be circled by several robed figures during breakfast... but here I was, cereal halfway between my bowl and mouth.
"Can I help you?" I hesitantly asked.
One gestured to my pile of new books, another gestured at my pile of old unread books, and yet another gestured at the books I was rereading.
"We wish for you to join our Reader Collective."
"I... already have a library card?"
"Oh! Sorry for bothering you then."

You will always be a part of my life

I have a small habit of remaking memes/image macros that have been JPEG’d to holy hell and back.

I would like to reiterate, for the record, that Dusa da best.

Some of the most innovative, outside the box, exciting, trans-disciplinary places to work and do research in the post war period were US weapons labs.
Norbert Wiener's concept of cybernetics comes from this milieu.
1. State bureaucracies can afford high degrees of freedom and creativity when motivated to do so.
2. Public ownership can be both robust and flexible - when so motivated.
3. Internet utopianism, which also stems from this milieu, was always inherently doomed because the power mechanics of the military industrial complex were never made explicit, let alone examined, challenged or removed. This was hidden in plain sight, but it was hidden. (Especially from the Gen Xers who bought into it wholesale.)
Halfway between the black and grey is no place for a life to waste away.
