OFL — Opportunities For Learning
We're excited to announce our new subscription-based keyboard! You'll only be billed for the buttons you use!
I'm still amazed by the state of that industry. Why paying for an eBook for nearly the same price as a printed book gives you a file you don't own and you can't use, while piracy gives you a file you can use like an actual book?
When buying a book, I can read it where I want, in as many places I want, on as many couches I want, and I can even lend it to a friend. And that's legal.
Wasn't technology supposed to make the future better?

i struggle to conceptualize what i do as "work," as it isn't a "real job" and doesn't fit into the framework of capitalism we've been beaten into. but just as a reminder to myself: i may be lying on my couch in my bathrobe right now, but reading this city council agenda background, going back over notes from previous meetings, and queuing up related news articles on agenda items preparing to spend 6 hours covering the meeting tonight is work.

Even the trending is delightful on here I was just scrolling it and it’s like cat, dog, earnest post, cat, frog, cat...
Hey, can I just say, because capitalist propaganda is so hard to unlearn:
If you have a job, any kind of job at all, I'm so proud of you. This shit is hard. Working, period, is hard.
And if you don't have a job? That doesn't make you lesser than the people who do have one.
We all deserve the same level of respect as human beings. Capitalism fails to uphold what should be a law of human rights.
Just for the record: I love Mastodon.
Is it the end-game of the peer-to-peer, decentralised, end-to-end encrypted personhood-protecting platform(s) we need? No. Is it fucking awesome? Yes.
(Do I love you, @Gargron? Yes, I do) :)
It’s a beautiful brick on the bridge we must build between the centralised and peer-to-peer worlds.
Now let’s use it like the stepping stone that it is, be thankful that it exists, help make it even better, and interoperate with it on the road to greener pastures.
An underrated aspect of Mastodon is that Eugen is a huge sweetheart. Like, FB has mark, twitter has jack, and we have Eugen.
The best part of this own-instance adventure has been that the local and federated timelines are such a joy now 😍 Really loving it here.
if this post gets 20 boosts ill get over my adhd and work on my BA thesis today.
im desperate here my deadline is in 2 weeks and ive been fighting this shit for literal months
Going to give this a go. Hello world... :)
Twitter felt like Warhammer 40k and Mastodon feels like Animal Crossing
