My semi-regular inquiry: Do any of my followers use SSB/Patchwork or Twister?

@privacylab Is there any published information on Quillux?

I do wonder how games like come out with such insane hardware requirements. Like what kind of equipment do the devs have that that game runs smoothly on it? I find it hard to believe that the devs wouldn't be testing their game at the highest quality setting, so wtf?

If you had 45 minutes to talk to a general audience about the surveillance web and what to do about it, what are the points you would be sure to include?

This is my somewhat regular toot inquiring as to whether anyone I know from the mastoverse uses Twister or secure scuttlebutt / patchwork.

Glancing at my mastodon feed while reading Walkaway by @doctorow and pondering the parallels.

"All of these companies have the same weakness: apps are not that hard to build. A determined group of #Uber drivers, once organized, could band together and easily program an app (or hire someone to) that would resemble Uber or #Lyft outwardly, but inwardly send the fruits of their labors back to themselves — no middlemen taking a cut or #BottomlessInvestorMaws to feed."

@ummjackson Except now I trashed the web interface when I tried to do the 1.2 update . The learning curve continues.

@ummjackson It's working for the moment. Afraid I have pulled from master. Not sure how to tell if I pulled from master or tagged. Just ran git pull as the update instructions for the mastodon repo indicated. Seems to be working at the moment.

commit fc122e9d78131efbe882b664b0186df21b179be0 (HEAD -> master, origin/master, origin/HEAD)

Oops.

So is the thing to do checkout the next stable release into a new branch, then merge?

Someone pointed out the awkwardness of entering into a space with an established culture. People often choose to cluster demographically. That tendency is especially pronounced in virtual environments.

I also suspect the public timelines will become less important as people build their own follow lists.

@mikecaulfield @bonstewart
I'm not sure you do. Citizenship happens because we have to share real space with our neighbors. I realized about ten years ago when I hung out in a Second Life community and governance experiment that virtual spaces aren't like that. It's almost trivially easy to take one's toys to another server or another platform/network. Your only incentive to be a good citizen is liking the people in your virtual social circle.
