Morning run, low hanging clouds over Manhattan.
AI poetry slam time 💫😀
Finally it's hot in NYC. But I'm between air conditioners at the moment so I'm wearing a cold pack that I had in the freezer. Smells like chicken stock but feels great.
Facebook is such garbage. I had closed my account, but wanted to keep up with a couple groups that only communicate via FB, so..
I created an account, which I locked down as tightly as they let you. I friended no one, just joined my two groups. Only viewed it via their onion site with the tor browser. Want to hear a mac mini attempt lift-off? run FB on tor. Wow.
Couple days in the site demands a cell number. Can't even log in to delete the account without giving one. Hell. No.
I highly recommend sw's not to use Whatsapp despite it's marketed encryption. Whatsapp and Insta are owned by and share data with Facebook. You cannot opt out of this atm. An alternative is Signal. Guess who was added to an Arabic group chat on WA and then got these ads on Insta.
I am not very good at drawing. I want to get better. So of course the answer is practice.
But it's just so easy to see the day go by and find there was no time for it!

Portland's cycle hire station wanted me to type in my gender!
I've found that the best way to introduce people to mastodon is to immediately suggest them a server.
Even if it's an invite only server, you can message the admins that you have someone in mind for ther server and would like an invite link to send to them.
It helps a lot. This is how you'll get friends and family on here.
omg omg it's time to watch the NEW episode of 🚀 🛰 THE EXPANSE 🍿 ✨
