artist: i draw inspiration from the hole in my soul
scientist: haha souls are not real
artist: ok how do i put this
artist: picture, at the center of my being, a supermassive singularity held in stasis by a counteracting gravitational field. because my imagination is not constrained by the laws of thermodynamics, the power differential produces gravitational friction that fuels the urge to communicate.
scientist: you draw inspiration from the hole in your soul, got it

I gistified my tweet thread about CHASM (Content/Hash Addressable Storage Map) https://gist.github.com/paniq/bf5b291949be14771344b19a38f042c0
most of us aren't really *anywhere* on the internet, we're in a google-amazon-twitter-facebook joint venture amusement park. if the outside of that park died down, who would notice?
corporations keep buying each other, so the number of players is shrinking all the time.
what to do?
Everyone! Welcome to 📯 #TootClub.
2nd rule of #TootClub is -- oh who am I kidding!
3rd rule of #TootClub, someone yells unsubscribe, falls silent, blocks you, the fight is over.
4th rule: only two persons to a fight.
5th rule: one fight at a time, friends.
6th rule: no shirts no pants.
7th rule: fights will go on as long as they have to.
And the 8th and final rule: If this is your first month at #TootClub, you HAVE to fight.
also required: underlining in red every instance of "tweet" so I can change it to "toot".
If Mastodon allowed to edit Toots, I'd probably switch for good. This is how it would work: Every toot that has subsequently been edited is labeled "edited"; Each toot is a new tweet, but marked as *a new revision* of the original toot; Clicking on "edited" in the UI reveals the history and allows users to read old versions. Toots older than, for example, 24 hours could be frozen permanently.
