Why many people don't and won't use open source federated sites 

People will continue to use big centralized sites like Discord until the alternatives drop the literal paragraphs of technobabble to explain what they are.

Most users do not know tech well. If they see pages of words they don't understand it's clear the software 'isn't for people like me'
so they go back to centralized sites.

If people don't understand what any of those acronyms and words mean it won't matter that the site is easier or better to use.

There's nothing wrong with technical explanations.
But they can be deeply alienating as a first impression and explanation to someone with no tech or coding skills who's after 'a site I can talk to my friends on'.

Folks know the sites they use are bad. But the alternative isn't accessible to the vast majority of people.

Non tech users need to be included and respected as potential users if open source is to appeal to all the communities it could benefit.

shameless self promotion

Breaking news in the US: Mitch McConnell is forcing a Senate vote on his amendment to give Bill Barr warrantless access to Americans’ browsing history. I’ve heard a lot of bad ideas in my lifetime, but this is one of the worst.

Job (+++) 

I had some senior employees (in both senses of the word) tell me that I need to relax, not worry so much about my IPM quota, and I'll get better naturally.

So not only was my old GC manager a shitty person to be around, he was teaching me shitty work habits. I feel vindicated. It wasn't just me, he ACTUALLY sucked.

I never had anyone tell me "slow down and don't worry about the numbers" at GC. It's almost as though Kroger is treating me like a Human Ass Being. Paying me like one too tbh
