Stilgherrian, 5at5 and the Historia Discordia

One item. A link; a piece of writing; an idea. A photo if I’m short on time. Every day this blog gains something new and thought-provoking.

Today, head on over to 5at5, the newest project of Stilgherrian, Aussie tech writer and thoughtful rabble-rouser. Yesterday’s inaugural newsletter looks particularly interesting for the mention of the Historia Discordia, documentation related to the religion/philosophy of discordianism, which Wikipedia says:

is centered on the idea that both order and disorder are illusions imposed on the universe by the human nervous system, and that neither of these illusions of apparent order and disorder is any more accurate or objectively true than the other.

Outside of the tech field, Stilgherrian’s straightforward writing on depression and having a mononym is also worth the time.
