A muffin-topped tree-fondling hermit of ambiguous origin.
A sassmouthed dรฉclassรฉ cutie pie who wonโ€™t just get with the programme.
The lobster-clawed lunch lady baking cookies for the protest.
The creepy-silent older kid you confess your secrets to at recess
(but were forced to invite to your birthday party).
A wild-eyed lumpenintellektueller mindspiv yelling doggerel in the dark.
Iโ€™m the briny basketcase your mommy says to get off the phone with.

Decided not to follow the Doctorow account because it's basically just his tweets being autoโ€“cross-posted to Masto. No actual Cory-in-Masto reality. It's just projection from the Twitter throne.

No disrespect meant, but I'm not here to follow accounts of people who can't be bothered to walk among us wooly paysans. I don't care what one's background is.

We will never know freedom until we get a Gopher compatible Mastodon instance.

I know Signal's got a lot of good things going for it too but can we please just have XMPP back? OMEMO is good

hi friends, here's a reminder to read my very good webcomic, Obelisk! it's currently on hiatus while I work on a buffer and outline stuff, that just means it's a great time for you to catch up on it!

If you like queer female leads, historical settings and a moody, gothic mix of horror and romance, Obelisk is probably for you! obeliskcomic.com

Almost everything is going to happen for you automatically - you don't have to spend any time working or worrying. Here's something that's fun. Absolutely no pressure. You are just a whisper floating across a mountain. Each highlight must have it's own private shadow.

@h To paraphrase Melvin Kranzberg, technology is neither good, nor bad, nor is it neutral.

Key criteria: who owns and controls it?

Itโ€™s โ€œsmartโ€ tech so whoโ€™s getter smarter about whom? If itโ€™s decentralised โ€“ the Ai, data gathering, etc., is happening on our devices and is accessible only to us โ€“ then we (individuals) are getting smarter about ourselves. Thatโ€™s great. Compatible with democracy.

In surveillance capitalism, corporations get smarter about us. Thatโ€™s feudal.

saw some queer kids on the train today

they were young and their faces were fresh

but i could see the hurt, guarded look in their eyes

they did not pout, nor did they smile

there's a lot to do

Hivemind! Easy, sea/naval-themed solo organ pieces for a memorial service, please?

Just found this via a post by @lindner: "Algorithmic glass ceiling in social networks: the effects of social recommendations on network diversity" blog.acolyer.org/2018/05/24/al
"Our mathematical analysis demonstrates the existence of an algorithmic glass ceiling that exhibits all the properties of the metaphorical social barrier that hinders groups like women or people of colour from attaining equal representation."
Must read more...

James Bridle gives this TED talk on childrenโ€™s media, the algorithmic exploitation of attention, deficits of AI mediation, the obfuscation of human agency, and cultural alienation. Excellent talk, ironically (suitably perhaps) on YouTube.
