The Netflix version of _Altered Carbon_ has a lot in common with an older work, _Voice of the Whirlwind_ by Walter Jon Williams.

I think I like it.

@erosdiscordia @selontheweb if you could put pleroma on a tiny computer (RPi, etc) and then hide it somewhere (like in or around a payphone) you could have pop-up fedi instances :0 like geo-caching sorta

Is Archive Team (@archiveteam@twitter.com) on the case? Hell yeah, we're on the case. People have been testing, re-testing, stress-testing, arguing and out the other end we have the ability to aborb Tumblr blogs like a desert floor absorbs the rain. We have been doing it all week.

You have corporate leaders, a bunch of sociopaths like Jack, Zuckerberg and so on, or a bunch of people so well insulated from what they created that they don’t see anything wrong.

Here with Mastodon Eugen quite clearly cares, if a lot of people continue to prod him like they are used to prodding sociopaths you can achieve two things, either he burns the heck out or stops caring.

You don’t appreciate how hard it is to make those design calls. It’s exceptional luck that Eugen gets it ~right.

Hello wonderful people,

I've done something that might prove to be interesting. I started an instance with the express intent of filling it with those ebooks bots @lynnesbian makes, except they wont just follow actual people, they'll also follow each other.

Either my server will melt into a puddle of useless slag, or kick off the singularity (or form a singularity, whoops! sorry!) Regardless of the outcome, I'm rather interested to see what sorts of things these bots come up with.

To that end, I need people who want ebooks bots. Don't know what that is? Check out @lynnesbian_ebooks . I'm happy to host some over at skynet.social/ if I can get some volunteers to have their toots scraped on a regular basis to feed these growing digital minds. Please bear in mind that each of these bots will _also_ be working off the toots of the other bots, who are following other people, so it's not quite the same experience you get with @lynnesbian

Interested? Suggestions? Reply or DM me.

PSA: Together, CH751 and C415A keys open half the indoor locks in America. Buy one of each, put em on your keyring. Definitely do not use them to break into bathrooms in places that require you to buy something. That would be illegal 😊

@cwebber is right in his latest post on his Patreon ( patreon.com/posts/libre-lounge ). Our latest episode of @librelounge captures what we think the show can be, both a celebration and a serious reflection of ourselves and FLOSS. There will be plenty of fun shows coming up on light hearted topics, but shows like we did this week are what really excite me about working on this podcast.

Just had a nebulizer treatment. Hands are shaking so much I think I could drill through glass.

hey, #nextcloud #cloudstorage folks~ looking to move my cloud storage & online shared document editing activities away from dropbox and google docs, but I don't have much spare cognitive capacity & I can't afford $/time/energy to self host. I'm looking though this list nextcloud.com/providers/ at the moment but I was wondering if anyone has specific recs...do you have any leads on good free/v. low cost providers in places with good privacy laws & w/ #collabora type online editing capabilities?

Anyone else find themselves using mastodon's favorite feature as a, "I want to reassure you that you're not just yelling aimlessly into the void, ' button?

I'm unofficially calling it the, 'I hear you' button from now on.

@bob @tursiops

making non-centralized alternatives is a good, but, if they are going to persist, we need to consider how they can *become* centralized systems and find ways to engineer solutions that counter those tendencies.

m.s and pawoo are perfect examples of a weakness in the federated model we have here. same as email or xmpp. unless we are careful we could fall into the same trap.

Today is the 50 anniversary of "the mother of all demos", given by Douglas Engelbart. In 1968, he decided to skip 40 years of technological progress and introduce the internet, markup languages, the mouse, collaborative editors and videoconferences in just one hour and a half. Just amazing. youtube.com/watch?v=yJDv-zdhzM
