Meta about social sites
In my experience, new sites work best if you treat them as their own thing and not as a one-for-one replacement for another thing; like moving to a new town, you can't expect things to exist in the same configuration that you had before, and it's worth thinking about settling in vs. demanding everything be the same as before
And it's called, I'm not kidding, Ice-X
The current tech trend
I finally figured out something it reminds me of— in the 80s and 90s sometimes someone's parents would suddenly go really hard into Amway or direct-sale jewelry or some other kind of multilevel marketing scheme. And the kids would sense it was a bad idea somehow but weren't able to articulate it well and the parents wouldn't listen to them anyway, and then after a while there'd be some excuse for why it didn't work out, and then everyone would act like it never happened.
Writing / advanced punctation
I used to be fine with the semicolon, I'd use it pretty frequently and would call bullshit on writers like Cormac McCarthy who said they hated it, but lately I'm taking it out and liking what removing it does, not because I don't think it has a purpose or shouldn't exist, but because it has a bad habit of calling attention to itself, and if you want that rolling unstoppable feeling that some stories have, semicolons (and em dashes too) have a way of interrupting flow
