The hunt continues for tightening up my privacy and my old data leakage. This is what I've been up to for the last week or so.
Oh, and yes, I have seen the "oh, you just log out and reboot and log in again when you are back up!" as that completely messes up the family settings where my phone/account is the one that manages the kids phones.
Wow. I had completely missed Authy and its back-ups and its multi-device functionality. Bye bye Google Authenticator. #facepalm
Just moving out of "old" platforms and reading your post on Mastodon on your blog and considering setting up an instance-of-one.
One thought that struck me though: If I'm new on Mastodon I don't have many connections. If I don't have any connections and run my instance-of-one I will only have me in "local" and absolutely no one in the federated timeline, correct? So I'd literally be alone, no? I would hear/see no one, and no one would hear/see me...?
I think you should start browsing in privacy if you don't already do it.
An interesting perspective from a 14-year old on social media.
"There, for anyone to see on her public Facebook account, were all of the embarrassing moments from my childhood: The letter I wrote to the tooth fairy when I was five years old, pictures of me crying when I was a toddler, and even vacation pictures of me when I was 12 and 13 that I had no knowledge of. It seemed that my entire life was documented on her Facebook account, and for 13 years, I had no idea."
I am quite fed up with my Macbook Pro with the new keyboard, adding extra letters more often than not. I spend more time correcting text these days than I spend typing it originally. #sigh
I don't like mastodon.social being the landing page for mastodon/the fediverse, but I do see gargron's point about people giving up if m.s has closed registration, or having choice paralysis on joinmastodon.org. I'd really like to see joinmastodon make it super easy to sign up for instances once the registration API exists, even if that means picking a few "trusted" instances and randomly distributing signups.
