Pinned toot

I live by four simple rules:

1. Don't be a dick.
2. Don't fuck it all up.
3. Don't forget to be kind.
4. Don't delay having fun.

For me, they kind of cover every imaginable situation. And yes, I broke all of them in the past, too. I just try really hard to not let it happen again.

Let's be excellent to eachother, people ❤️

Goodreads is not good anymore.

I want to keep track of my reading, and I want recommendations and maybe get into discussions over books I've read. Do you have any for me?

At the moment I'm trying to use my M.b account @carlo for that … it's a bit unstructured (in comparison to Goodreads et al) but it feels like a throwback to the good ol' blogging times (G-blog represent!), and maybe that's enough.

Finished *The Three-Body Problem* by Cixin Liu. 📚

I didn't like it; I don't get the hype about it at all. It's got a few interesting ideas, sure, but the storytelling was clinical, the characters were 1.5-dimensional at best, and the dialogs were wooden. What am I missing here‽

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Moin moin, @hmans ^5

Ich mag hier, dass ich z.B. micro.blog-Accounts folgen kann. Wobei sich meine Masto-Benutzung derzeit primär aufs Lurken beschränkt.

Verdict HEY.com: not for me.

But it gave me some ideas on how to further tighten my email regime which is a good thing.

Has anyone here successfully married @pixelfed and Micro.blog yet? I guess it'd be possible to have a Pixelfed account somewhere and crosspost new Pixelfed posts in its entirety to a M.b account, no?

Something something …?

„Die nächsten 20 Jahre werden leichter für Menschen, die Unsicherheit aushalten können“

Krautreporterin Esther Göbel hat ein sehr interessantes Gespräch über Unsicherheit, Angst und Zukunftsplanung mit der Philosophin Natalie Knapp geführt. krautreporter.de/3367-die-nach

Has anyone here successfully married M.b and Pixelfed yet? I guess it’d be possible to have a Pixelfed account on some instance and crosspost any of my new Pixelfed posts in its entirety to my M.b account, no?

I just imported ~250 Instagram posts using the macOS M.b client. Now I have to clean them up because some of the markup resulted in headline-heavy posts. 😂

And the multi-picture IG posts were turned into series of single-picture posts here. Gotta fix that, too.

I've two HEY.com invites to hand out, if anyone is interested, just ping me @carlo!

First come, first serve, it's a free 30 days trial, $99/year after that.

One week in and I'm already doing more Mastodonning from my Micro.blog account than from this one.

You can follow my shenanigans there if you're into that sort of thing → @carlo

Sweet, my HEY.com invite arrived! ✉️ I am still unsure whether their approach to email would actually work for me, but their ideas about it I do find appealing. Only one way to find out, I guess...

Haben wir über 3 bis 14 Ecken Kontakt zu jemandem aus der Mobilfunksparte der Telekom?
