Update: yeah, that went badly.
Can loudly hear the neighbours telling their party guests that we once asked them to turn their music down at "5:30pm on a Saturday!" (it was later, but whatever) and now deserve to be kept awake whenever they like. Telling them off later is going to be fun 😐 I'm already jittery thinking about the impending conversation.
run a mastodon instance for businesses. Sell accounts month to month and do the legwork to verify them, maybe even patching in a Verified thing to display on the site.. Federate with other ostatus instances under the full knowledge that your role is facilitator and business herder.
this could be p valuable.

The REAL 7 habits of highly successful people:
1) Being born into a rich family
2) Not having to face discrimination
3) Going to a private school with exceptional support
4) Going to an exclusive university where you can build contacts with other rich people and get opportunities most people don't have
5) Having good credit history because you've never struggled to pay bills, making it easy for you to get investments
6) Financial safety nets
7) Politicians bend over backwards for you
Uber (the company) is so foul. They've has shown over and over they'll fuck over whoever they can (the state, their drivers, their own employees, particularly women/minorities) in pursuit of profits. Why do people keep using Uber (the service)? I see female friends talking about how great it is and I genuinely don't understand how they condone it.
A brand just favourited my toot
The brands are here already 😩
If we can get people using an open, decentralised social network instead of a proprietary centralised one, maybe one day we can finally get people to write their blog posts somewhere other than Medium
A thing I've been working on in my spare time is writing a language in Go that compiles to Go.
From my perspective, Go is a modern language with lots of benefits, but it's not a *high level* language. There's a lot of stuff that's clunky to do that you could accomplish easily in, say, Python. So why not build a better syntax on top?
My plan is something very like OCaml with more Go-like syntax (so like FB's Reason). But so far I'm only parsing and generating AST for basic syntax. Early days!
