the problem with Linux UI design is that most of the time, it's just a bunch of developers who don't know shit about design talking in a mailing list (ugh) about how a button should have a gradient because "it looks better" or whatever

Years ago, my father-in-law asked how I make my green tea. “I drop my Zoujirushi water heater temperature to 175 F, preheat my ceramic cup, measure two tablespoons, steep for 1:25 minutes.”

He nodded, then said “I dump a handful of tea into boiling water and come back when I remember it.”

Since then I see this dichotomy everywhere. Like. There’s coders who craft their code like jewelers polishing a ruby. And others who throw some wooden planks together and move on with their lives. Both ok.

@Are0h @Shotagonist for real, you said it. my jokes are often intertwined with reality. the very serious point is that the wrong people are "listening" to people with mental issues, feigning concern, and steering them the wrong way.

Personally, I think Masto is a brilliant idea. It pushed me to consider some things that I had not previously. And managing my instance is immensly satisfying. I just enjoy the work.

However, as we get deeper into understanding the nature of social media, we are seeing the main problem with it is more so culture than technology.

There need to be some considerations made that take the culture bit as seriously, if not more so, than the coding piece.

That’s where progress will happen.
