A few words about me

I am Jack’s wasted life.

I wrote a bunch of articles by an organ in the first person.


That scene from Rocky movie

Arguably the best scene in the classic Rocky (1976) movie, is when Mickey comes with an offer:

..Well, what ya need is a manager. A manager, listen to me. I know, because I’ve been in this racket for fifty years…I’ve seen it all, all of it.

and then

I got all this knowledge, I got it up here now, I wanna give it to you…I wanna take care of ya, I wanna make sure that all this sh*t that happened to me doesn’t happen to you…

Well, now I am that beaten up Mickey, the coach.

My HN footprint

My relationships with https://news.ycombinator.com/ was rather stormy.

I would say that I have graduated from it, starting as a naive idealist on the best (at the very beginning) free English-media technologist site, and ended up as a bitter dissident from the heavily policed and strictly moderated Chud’s safe space.

It must be emphasized that the site lost all the marginals and original thinkers in order to become a wast platform for narcissistic and attention-seeking mediocrity.

I have been banned from it about 10 times, but never for anything outrageously stupid or blatantly wrong (they never ban you for being stupid). Every fight I picked up was about something unorthodox, controversial and it was usually against so-called common sense (what an uneducated majority is currently agreed upon).

Nowadays it has all the attributes of an organized authoritarian religious sect, or a pseudo-scientific sectarian community, which favorably peer-reviews only the fellow sectarians, no matter what kind of conformist nonsense they write and for what reason.

Here is a short list of my accounts on HN:
