Apparently tweeting just the title of Bruce Willis’s best known Christmas movie, in response to a tweet about pop culture references to Beethoven’s 9th symphony, is enough to get one thrown in “jail” at the bird site.

Right. Been sitting on this for far too long.

I offer for your perusal a critique, of sorts, of a laudable movement, but one which I now believe to be both target blind and exclusionary, and that, as a consequence, I don’t want to devote any more of my time to it.


Hey all, moving off Cloudflare caused some DNS issues for my sites - and for my Protonmail custom domain.

If you email me and get a bounce message, use doug <at> weareopen <dot> coop instead please!

Well it took me most of the day but I’ve now got my live streaming setup with the Atem Mini Pro that arrived today ready for my keynote tomorrow at the @imd Interactive Future Exhibition.

Today’s perplexing challenge: trying to get federated wiki running in a docker engine on jelastic

Status: thoroughly perplexed

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: (it's not a social site, it's a creative sandbox)

Realizing with utter horror that "do not telegraph my wife stop" is no longer around

"Next time work makes you feel less than human, should you gently speak truth to power, or should you use mindfulness to self-regulate & maintain function in an oppressive system? Should you choose to self-regulate, are you tacitly thanking the oppressive system for giving you the tools of self-regulation to begin with? Furthermore, how much of this experience—this process of spelunking into my mind—should be comfortable and brightly colored? How much should feel good?"

Wondering if I could sleep until after the holidays like a light version of Rip van Winkle

@HerraBRE Correction. MUA . My apologies - it was clearly too late at night for me to be writing a technical post :)

@HerraBRE ‪I’m confused about mailpile. Since it’s an MTA, you’re going to have to point it at an IMAP/POP server. Unless you ‬and your correspondents encrypt zealously, whoever controls that server can snoop. It’s best to store your mail on the device running mailpile. If you don’t have a laptop that strategy restricts your access to your mail. I guess I’m having trouble thinking through the use case. I’m not even sure this rambling makes much sense.

Fascism, cry for help 

Sorry for my absence. I'm fighting fascism right now. Things are serious in Brazil. A black man was murdered, stabbed 12 times while the murderer yelled the name of the fascist candidate. A girl with a t-shirt against the candidate was kidnapped by 3 men, who beat her and draw the Nazi symbol on her with a knife.

We are forming a resistance. However, Brazil needs you. We are afraid. This is a cry for help. Search for news about Brazil and share them of you can, please.

I have a new appreciation for Mastodon content warnings.
