For me, it kinds of sums up the disconnect that can exist between the very well-intentioned people who a) develop software, b) deploy software to support community-building goals, and c) use that software in their communities. I'm convinced that hosting more conversations that include all three kinds of people could lead to improvements in the #UX of ethical tech, to the point where it's much better than any of the #DataFarms. That's my vision for the CTA and/or #OAE:

Don't live each day as if it were your last - live each day as curious and excited as if it were your first.

I'm happy that @Gargron is always quick to recommend @pinafore to folks who prefer single-column layouts. I see Pinafore less as a competitor and more as a statement about how it's *possible* to build alternative Mastodon UIs (thanks to Eugen's good API design). #Halcyon and #Brutaldon are also great examples of this.

The Mastodon frontend doesn't have to be all things to all people. We have a wide choice of mobile apps; it should be the same for the web.

I really wish there was an easy way to connect Emacs to an Etherpad Lite instance or page. org-mode on an Etherpad would be amazingly useful for me!

Ironies of Pinafore: the things I did for privacy reasons – only storing data locally, directly contacting instance APIs from the browser – actually make it *more* likely to get blocked by private browsing mode or Privacy Badger. 😞

I want to take the day off and do Advent of Code in #RustLang :blobthinkingcool:

'We are last generation that can stop climate change' – UN summit - […]Poland generates 80% of its electricity from coal + UN summit will take place in a coal mining town, Katowice. PL's gov has also allowed 2 coal companies to sponsor the summit.[…]

I'll forever remember a fake trailer my little brother made, speaking in as deep and dramatic voice as his 10-year-old body would allow.

"A movie about doors. Owls. And lots of love. A movie called...Duplex!"

The only motivational #quote you'll ever need:

Every day there comes a moment when a person lays his hands in his lap and all his busyness collapses like ashes.
The work accomplished is, from the soul's point of view, entirely imaginary.

- The always poignant Robert Musil


If someone tells you that an online filter can eliminate "bad" speech but keep everything else intact, don't believe them.

has anyone made a list of decent routers that openwrt supports? but not like openwrt's giant unsorted list of routers across generations, technologies, and quality - a list of decent routers for today
