Hey everyone, specially followers!

I've been playing around Mastodon a bit in order to find out how I wanted to use it. That led me to have 3 different profiles, based on area of interest and language.

Today I've decided to keep only 2 profiles:

- Work/programming @carlesjove

- Personal @carlesjove

By the end of the month I'll stop using this account on .social, which means that I'll automatically follow you from a diff account but you need to manually follow me if still interested.

Thx!

I think the thing I miss the most from living in the city is record stores. I would go to one and pick some random albums form a band I've never heard about just because I like the cover art.

And this one was great too!!! The golden era of Shelter. Too bad I didn't see them recently when they came to Barcelona.

I've been staying up working all week but not today, even though I have a terrible deadline to meet tomorrow. I rather work on Saturday if necessary.

If it has to be delivered on Friday it can very well just be in your inbox on Monday 9am. A new rule I just pulled off my ass.

Imagine if Amazon was run as a cooperative, and the money generated by the workers went to them instead. Amazon could literally hire 10 times as many people, and have each employee work 1/2 a day a week while getting the same salary they get now. The only reason that's not happening is because a guy named Jeff takes the lion share of the profits.

Well, this is a very valid point IMO. Of course, I don't think the problem is paid political advertising, but the armies of trolls and so on, but well, at least the guy is thinking about this stuff.

Me: I'm going to put some money aside for the bills

*Bills come*

Me: 😓

Jack Dorsey followed Mastodon on Twitter a month ago so it's not like he doesn't know Mastodon exists, take from that what you will

Have you seen this????? Has World War III started???

"Twitter is funding a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media. The goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard."

It's very sad to witness what's going on in Spain… VOX, a far-right organization whose leader prouds himself on always wearing a gun, is about to have a seat in the Parliament table, after winning 1/7 of total seats, spreading mostly anti-feminist, anti-ecologist, anti-LGBT and anti-immigration ideas. Not to mention pro nationalist and in favour of demolishing any kind of federalism and cultural/linguistic diversity.

@hyperlink I'd probably still get it on white or cream but tbh the blue kinda hits different

I'm on this dating site and whenever someone likes me or I get a match I'm like "shit, I gotta close this". I'd like to just be there and be ignored, as in real life. Why is my avatar sexier than me?

I had no idea, but in Georgia there have been important demonstrations against the government for quite a few months already, and protesters arrested by the hundreds.

OMG! Matt Elliott has just published a bunch of albums on Spotify.

Oh shit. Folk was selling Randy's last album for less than 2€ on Discogs. Grabbed it in no time. Now I finally have all their albums! To me, one of the greatest punk-rock bands ever.

Also, another folk was selling both Saidiwas first EP and only album. A little more expensive, but hell, they're must-haves and I was a bit too young when they were around. So glad I've been able to get them now!
