So, after one year of read-write time about computers I thought of having a Mastodon première of The User Condition, a looong text on computer agency and behavior. Here's the link, enjoy:
Of course I'm profoundly grateful for the help that I received from all of you people here (check acknowledgements at the bottom).
Needless to say, I welcome feedback, criticism, bug/misspells reports and whatever else comes to mind :)

I wrote up a few options on how to preserve Flash projects here: https://rhizome.org/editorial/2020/dec/21/flash-preservation/
At the bottom of that page you have the option to donate so Rhizome can upsize its emulation infrastructure to keep bringing Flash to the web.
Nextcloud released easy one click migration from Google, Dropbox, OneDrive and others https://nextcloud.com/blog/easy-migration-to-nextcloud-from-insecure-and-privacy-unfriendly-platforms-now-available/
I know Masto has a profile migration thing that apparently works well, but what if you want to keep a local backup of your account in case the instance you use expectedly goes under forever? I don't think you can still migrate if you wake up one day and realise your instance is dead... ?
You seem to be able to export your whole account "in the ActivityPub format" but you can only import CSV lists in a new account.
Am I missing something?
