@celia the human world in general is broken, yes.
as for tech, it's hard to realize that it's not a giant monolith. when folks talk about it, the immediate thing everyone thinks about is FAANG or the general domain of "social media" and advertising.
there are other domains within the larger tech umbrella. i'm currently working in the energy domain, where there is a lot of interesting tech work happening. and it has renewed my interest in the field.
@garritfra i gave up on apps a while ago. i've been switching between plain text files and using my remarkable2 (e-ink notebook). i really prefer the remarkable, because it's like a physical notebook but i never run out of pages and it's small enough that i can take it everywhere.
there is also todo.txt (http://todotxt.org/), which i've used in the recent past and liked well enough.
@garritfra this suggests you're going into an office. is that true?
my new company is totally remote, and it's such a relief to not have to worry about returning to a physical office. i realize this situation isn't for everyone.
@kev thanks for sharing. not sure the article you site in your blog post supports the idea that dark mode is harmful over the long term. maybe i misread it, but to me it was suggesting that in the long term light mode could potentially be more harmful, in particular that it could be linked to myopia (nearsighteness).
it was interesting that font size has such an impact on short-term performance in light vs dark mode. this seems more important now with all the 4k monitors on the market.
