I’m in as a backer at the “unique paperback” level for the crowdfunding campaign to make Subcutanean, a novel by Aaron Reed, where each copy is different, a reality. indiegogo.com/projects/subcuta

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

I needed an uplift after listening to a Toronto band cover Radiohead songs in a church, and trap music where Quavo’s guest spots outshine the rapper who has top billing (except Young Thug tracks) was just what the doctor ordered.

Twitter for iOS now shows which app people posted with. Remember how we blew up because they stopped doing that? Also, likes are florps again.

If I was worried that we were exiting a golden age in rap, Young Thug’s long verse on Rae Sremmurd’s “Offshore” put me at ease that we’re still in that golden age.

I should add that to my list of social media failures at notes.justagwailo.com/notes/wr and replace the Robert Scoble one because it turns out, well…

My greatest failure as someone who posts to social media was having too unique a combination of interests, and thinking I needed to break off into separate accounts for each interest when really my interests haven’t been interesting to other people individually either.
