Hey mastodon! #introductions! I'm just a lie. Wearing a tie. I don't have much to say about myself. I'm interested in changing the world, but not in letting people know who I am. So #privacy and #activism. I'm an experienced #linux user, and a fan of #vim and #terminals. That's about it.

@kat I think that's pretty hard to answer. I would like a world where people put more thought into their choices. Where everyone could be anything. I'd like to be part of making that happen. When the internet first started getting big, you could go online and be any and everyone, and it was anonymous and beautiful. Things have changed, as we've all gotten used to just being ad revenue. I don't know how to fix that, but I'd like to have a chance to try...



I just thought it might be useful to unpack that, as it seemed a pretty big thing.

Isn't it part of the human condition that we can never know what's going on inside people's heads and motivating their choices ?

It is good to be able to avoid corporate tracking whilst sharing things though!

I have started trying to avoid "grand narratives" of changing the world. There is so much to do in my backyard first!

@kat I dunno. You have to aim big, and start small. I'd like to change the whole world, but I'm starting by using invidio.us instead of youtube... Hah.
