@gme Someone pointed me to#2A yesterday. It starts, "A well regulated militia...". I am now applying all 4 of those words to everything I hear about gun control, and it isn't pretty.

4 1/2 days into a water+coffee+bourbon fast. Going fine. Not even thinking about food really. Ask me about it. Trying to lose about 10 lbs I gained before Thanksgiving. A friend challenged me to do it for 7 days. Shouldn't be a problem. Let's see how it goes. Started at about 16% body fat on my Omron, will try to get down to about 10%.

This wired article ( ) about Mastodon is mostly good. It covers the basic features and talks about a shift from Twitter to Mastodon.

It confuses one key issue though, and that’s the “culture” of Mastodon.

What we’re seeing now across the Fediverse are the first adopters. The fringe. The queer. The hackers. The staunch individualists. The communal care takers.

As Mastodon becomes more mainstream, the “culture” will shift.

If you’re here for the culture, be wary... 1/2

Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!

Here's a picture of me in my new Aira glasses. Aira is an on call service that gives blind people the ability to get visual tasks done. It's like having a co-pilot who gives you directions and visual information. My Aira agent helped me line up the picture and then snapped it for me using my phone's camera.

There's an amazing number of #ActivityPub #alternatives now available or under development:

Google Calendar -> @calendar_social

Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?
