@tool_man Separating binary from the rest of the site sounds like a logical solution, but it would probably mean splitting the site into two repositories and it would be rather problematic in regard to CI setup. Also Hakyll binaries contain hardcoded paths, so this separation of content from generator wouldn’t be very natural.
In the end Hakyll was replaced with Zodiac: https://capitalism.party/@KrzysiekJ/100153765452913361
@Antanicus Well, human labour can be exchanged for computer labour, so I see no problem in that matter except that Marx’s Law of Value seems to artificially limit itself to human labour (at least when reading the abstract at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_value ). Let’s say that we have a transport service. Does the value of that service fundamentally depend on whether it is performed by a human, by a horse or by an autonomous car?
• When using Stack, the ~/.stack directory is about 3.5 GB.
• The build fails when running on CI, (apparently due to an old Stack version): https://gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin.tech/-/jobs/72181366 .
• When fixed, the build times out after one hour of running: https://gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin.tech/-/jobs/72264358 .
• If cabal sandbox is used instead of Stack, another error occurs: https://github.com/bos/aeson/issues/641
Another possible variation:
• provide paid early access to those who need it for some reason;
• provide free access for some time to the main audience;
• provide paid access again to those who still need the article.
• provide HTML version for free;
• provide paid print (PDF) and opton (EPUB, MOBI) versions.
(This is actually what my jekyll-paspagon plugin had been allowing).
@Wolf480pl Giving money doesn’t sound like creating previously non-existent utility; it’s just changing ownership of resources. And clearly some resources (energy) which have utility are destroyed in proof of work. Refer to Bastiat’s parable of the broken window: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_broken_window
@Wolf480pl Well, in that sense if I turn a light bulb on, but close it in a black box, then it is profitable to electricity sellers. However it is neither profitable nor beneficial to me, hence from my point of view there is no utility in turning the bulb on. What utility does proof of work provide to cryptocurrency users (unless it is used to obtain security, as in Bitcoin)?
The problem with such thinking is that the labour theory of value (offen associated with #marxism) has been refuted. The work in general has no value in itself. The fact that work has been performed may provide “psychological value” for some, but there’s no real utility associated with it.

@marsxyz The notion of regulationism doesn’t seem to be widespread and the totalitarian aspect of cookie law seems to fit well into fascism… We could argue that statism is a better notion, but according to Wikipedia statism means support for existence of state in any form, which doesn’t provide much meaning in this context… I’ll ask what people on the Birdsite think, maybe more thoughts will come…
