Recently I've been thinking a lot about startup culture, and its values. I don't want to be associated with it at all any more — I want to be the founder of an indie software business, not a startup. I care more about users than million-dollar valuations. And I want more people to feel the same way, choosing small-scale, human values over investment and growth. I tried to articulate this and wrote a thing about it: http://joshsharp.com.au/blog/fewer-startups-more-indies.html
I just bought stuff from Newegg earlier this week, they have been infected with CC-stealing malware since a month ago.
I was on an early walk and found a guy staring at the telephone wires. I turned to see what he might be looking at, and he held a finger to his lips to quiet me. He whispered, “there’s a mockingbird up there. If you listen, he’ll ring like a bell.”
So we stood there in silence, and then the little bird opened his mouth and sang chimes to us. He rang like a bell.
The stranger and I looked at each other, then smiled and laughed as we went our separate ways. That was a nice way to start a day.
you: sorry, whats that?
me: uhh, well i mean i can't really explain it, just look it up, google is your friend, jus--- *shakes head vigerously* fuck,!!! Google ain't your friend! duck duck go it. go it. duck the fuck outta it. put that question to the duck my friend. Duck it. or go to a library & ask them. say "can you duck this for me" like that. "can you duck this fact to tell me its true". thats what you say now

I think one good way to be #verified on #Mastodon is to host your own instance on your own domain and manually add users. The TLS certificate generated against your domain would become part of the chain of trust. For example, @ u1 @ d1.com means that u1 is part of the organization owning d1.com, and you can verify d1.com by its cert.
One thing I'm not sure about is if Mastodon verifies the handle against the domain and TLS cert. This needs a fair bit of research, I guess.
@Andylanechapman i saw a job posting the other day for a caretaker at a cat sanctuary on an island off the coast of greece, where you get paid to live in a tiny home and take care of over 40 cats. i literally cannot stop thinking about it and considered putting off all my other life plans and college for it
