whenever I actually watch lobbyists speak at hearings I am reminded to work even harder on encouraging "oh do I really know enough to speak?" experts I know to call up the legislative staffers and ask for an invitation to give oral testimony at these things. #nysprivacy

Lots of people weren't around for when the fediverse was at its first peak at around 2010-2011. Google Plus swept in and plenty of people quit the fediverse saying "Google will do a better job keeping this running than independent sites can." For this and some other reasons, for some time the fediverse was a ghost town.
Let's not forget that next time.
@PixelOccult Great! Just wanted to confirm identity out-of-band.
I saw your decks featured at a local game and hobby store and had good feelings. Thanks for making beautiful things!
Hey folks (signal boost appreciated): I'm working on a series of urban fantasy novels that will prominently feature solidarity economics (first one due to the publisher in September). Does anyone know of any co-ops open to giving access to their day to day operations for the sake of accurate storytelling? I really want to get the democratic practices and the mundane everyday stuff absolutely right. I think it is very important.
Closing out 2018 with a major new release of Beautiful Soup. (https://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/)
In 4.7.0, CSS selector support goes from 'haphazard' to 'nearly complete' with the inclusion of Isaac Muse's SoupSieve (https://facelessuser.github.io/soupsieve/).
Please use it to make things better!
@rngesus_wept Keen observation. I tend to think of this—in most but not all cases—as a symptom of of toxic masculinity, which is why it seems axiomatic.
People normalize a reflexive aggression as a gendered part of their personal and community identity. After the norm is established and ritually expressed, these markers of identity easily become matters of expression to the holders.
