Memory Dump #5
Weekly Digest for May 7th, Year 7531
Hello friends, I once again welcome you to this weekly rundown I call the memory dump. First, I want to thank every single one of you for subscribing to this newsletter. I am very humbled that after just 4 months, 1000 people have invited my content to be delivered to their inbox, which I consider a sacred space in the online world. Its one thing to follow someone on social media, but to include my content in your inbox alongside some of your most essential personal communications is something I do not take for granted. So thank you to all who have continued to support my work. I strive to provide more value the more I write.
There are a couple other content updates I wanted to cover before we jump into the memory dump. The first being that The Reversion Podcast is now available on Spotify. Some listeners kept telling me they were having trouble with the Substack app or listening in their browser, so I figured its time to branch out. I’ve been trying to upload to Youtube but since I don’t have any visuals, I have to convert all the audio files to video and find visuals for each one. I simply don’t have the time to do it right now. So to keep up outside of Substack, you can now follow The Reversion Podcast on Spotify.
There is something else that I am excited to share with you all. I built a Twitter bot that I’m running from my Raspberry Pi. It posts a high res image of a random classical painting along with the artist name, year and title of the painting. It will post a different image every 2 hours for the next 440 days, then repeat. As far as I know, there’s nothing quite like it. I hope that it can restore some much needed traditional beauty to people’s timeline and introduce them to timeless classics never seen before. Go check it out of it sounds interesting, you really have to take the time to zoom in and explore these paintings, they are masterful works of art that demand thoughtful reflection. The bot is tentatively titled Based Classics, subject to change.
Now that some general housekeeping is out of the way, this week’s memory dump includes an OS built for a doomsday scenario, an somewhat relevant commission report on the race riots of the 60s, a book about the counter-culture movement being a CIA psyop and some personal reflections on writing.
