I've been meaning to make an update to the last collection of my thoughts online in a while. I was gonna write about something philosophical like the human gameplay loop or the loss of autonomy but I found something more interesting.
It's called Geek Code. Looks like a PGP signature block but don't be confused, this encodes information about geeks and not about the text above it.
While it is a bit of fun (see a? and h++ on my geek code above) but they can actually be used to send information about interests even if it is a bit convoluted
I'll list a couple cool resources you can use to get a code block as you will or decode them too!
