Thoughts #10

“Thoughts” is (will be) a weekly roll-up of my mastodon feed with some notable thoughts collected into a long-form blog post. “Long form” is relative here, as I will only expand a little on some selected subjects, not write screens and screens of text on each of these subjects.

If you think I toot too much to follow, this is an alternative to follow some of my thoughts.

This week (2021-07-03– 2021-07-09) I released a long-prepared blog article, deleted github repositories and thought a lot about minimalism.


This week, I released the article on butido, the packaging tool written in Rust that I wrote for/at my company and was allowed to release as open source.

I got very positive feedback on the article – thank you all for reading and your comments!

Deleting GitHub repos

I also deleted all my repositories (source) on GitHub. After GitHub was acquired by Microsoft, things went downhill. Now is the time to move away.

I already wrote an blog port exclusively on that topic which I will release next week.


Lately I am getting more and more into the topic of minimalism (german).

While writing this section of the weekly roll-up, I decided that my thoughts here are worth a dedicated article, that's why I won't lose too much words here. Just so much: I really like the philosophical idea of minimalism, although I have some issues in the practical execution of the/se ideas.
