A customer at work just gave me these cuz I said I liked their pins ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

My father-in-law just gifted me an ivory #chess set that he picked up in Hokaido, Japan, in 1950.

It's gorgeous. The attention to detail is incredible. I'm very moved that he would gift it to me.

It feels a little weird to own an ivory set. I'll be donating to a non-profit that fights against ivory poaching.

Hey #mastodon wouldn't it be nice if opensource.com showed solidarity by featuring a mastodon social button on each article?

Well, that's what I suggested and as of this morning- that's exactly what they're doing!

In a post-Twitter world, I honestly have no idea whether one of my blog posts will take off or become a dud. Someone posts it to the right subreddit, or to the right tech news aggregator, and suddenly it gets a ton of hits. Or it languishes in obscurity and I feel embarrassed to even see it in the "Recent Posts" sidebar.

Twitter has probably warped my relationship with my "audience" to an unhealthy degree. I should just publish stuff when it feels right.

Self-care means something different for everyone. Do the things that will help you feel better.

I think a critical part of being in any memory or heritage line of work is accepting and respecting at face value peoples stated desire that you not collect, save, and preserve the things that THEY made, said, etc.

Accepting and respecting without making people prove to you theyโ€™re being โ€œrationalโ€ per your criteria. Understanding you may not get it.

Exceptions I do seeโ€”if theyโ€™re holding power over others, in public official positions, actively harming someone.

Tired: If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear.
Wired: If you've got something to hide, you shouldn't be in public.
Inspired: You may trust the current systems to have your back, but at some future point your public information that was otherwise considered harmless may end up becoming an indictment against you, maybe by mistake. What you are really saying is you support current power structures that are working to oppress those you don't like. You just don't realize it yet.

@OCRbot youโ€™re super cool! Is there a way to support your efforts?

actually learning about the history of christianity is the most dangerous thing possible to evangelicalism, which is a reactionary ideology that seeks to erase history so it can make the ridiculous claim that its very particular brand of morality and theology is the true form of christianity that has always existed
