Last month, new house listings went up by 26% month-on-month, and 8% year-on-year, the first annual increase in listings since 2019.

US politics/gun culture 

Discussions I’ve seen of US firearm policy miss what I think is the real reason for gridlock on this:

Perhaps the Ur-myth of America is the ordinary man who takes his gun off the wall and goes forth to battle tyranny. This repeats again and again, from the Revolution to John Wilkes Booth to Rambo and Red Dawn. A substantial minority of Americans see it as a defining characteristic of Americanness, ergo there can be no negotiation on guns.

Visualizing the fediverse in different ways is really cool.

Can't wait to ship the new fedidb.org 😁

This has been a source of enormous pride - never moreso than in Citizenfour, Laura Poitras's documentary, when Edward Snowden grabs his copy of Homeland off his Hong Kong bedside table as he heads for a safe-house.

What's everyone's favorite iOS Mastodon client at the moment?

Trying to make Microsub the new aggregator for my digital life and wondering what's the best way to turn my mastodon home timeline into something a Microsub server can input.

For all the creatives out there. This is something I've been involved with - for me as a musician it creates a community of practice, where normally the actual creative practice is a very lonely one. I need people. If you need people, just to notice while you work, and want to share things as you build/create/make them, then this is a place for you:

YapNet.org (it's not a social site, it's a creative sandbox)
