P. S. I always boost a lot of stuff. If you don't want to see the stuff I boost, this version of Mastodon (2.1) on mastodon.social allows you to opt out of that on my profile
If you have a mastodon.social account but have moved over to a different server, you can login to your old account and, under edit profile, setup a profile redirect note.
While I'm inventing conspiracy theory origins for recent technologies, here's another one:
Bitcoin was invented by an unknown person pseudonamed "Satoshi Nakamoto". Before people used their spare computing time to mine bitcoins, one of the big things they did with spare compute was to run the SETI@Home client, helping to search for extraterrestrials. Who might have a vested interest in redirecting resources away from the search for extraterrestrials? Is "Satoshi Nakamoto" really a /person/?
its interesting that pinterests entire business model is to download every single image on the internet, and put them all on a web page, and when you click on them it tells you to join pinterest

Say that again ?
I turned off my Nextcloud some time ago. I plan my work in a paper notebook, and use an old fashioned paper calendar. My address book is just locally on my devices (of course backed up). I don't use email on my phone so that works out surprisingly well.
I use Syncthing for syncing a few files between my phone and laptop, which doesn't require a server. The only thing still running on my server is a pump.io instance. I'm afraid when my server dies (it's a pretty old computer) I won't be replacing it.
I guess I'm getting old and going Luddite :-)
Any takers for implementing the Web Share Target API in Mastodon?
It just landed in Chrome Canary on Android and it would take integration with the operating system to the next level, allowing users to easily share text from other applications in Mastodon.
