Conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting... the truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless.

I just launched a new art project in the form of a Mastodon bot that will slowly tell a story over the course of three weeks by posting a drawing every day. You can follow it at @dailystory

The bot post the first image on Monday April 12 and post a new image everyday at 6 pm UTC (as long as nothing breaks).

I hope you all enjoy it.

I've been on the Fediverse for over 4 years now and we still can't filter boosts from our list timelines. Will this ever change?

If you are into text-based interfaces, such as Linux terminals or text-based web browser, you would love the look of gemini:// pages. Wow.

I love it. We need more pages on Gemini

There was a dramatised version of "Thousand Cranes" by Yasunari Kawabata on BBC radio 3 tonight, a story of loss and love, framed by the tea ceremony.

I have previously read his "The Master of Go". He was truly a great writer.

But just now I read his Nobel Lecture, and it is one of the most profound pieces on Japan that I have ever read. I am really moved by it.

Denying that connection fixes it, because OCSP is a soft failure.

(Disconnect internet also fixes.)
