Something @Mastodon did that I had begun to think was impossible: it got me thinking about open social platforms again.
I'm so burnt out on birdsite and facepage - even though I like many of the people I follow there. Being here and feeling encouraged to re-think some of the patterns that have been ossified on other platforms is so refreshing.
Thank you @Gargron et al.
Wow, Mast is a *good* iOS app for Mastodon. It looks great, has plenty of configurability, and supports all the native features I can think of.
Um, I did a thing
I am SO excited about this work @brentsimmons is doing. I was a Frontier user in the mid-90s when Brent was at Userland.

Anecdote: In college I did a 3-month course in worldview and philosophy. We were always staying up til the early morning working on papers and projects, but breakfast was only served between 6:30 and 7:00am and was the only way to get coffee before lunchtime.
I found out years later that my classmates called me "the dark presence" because I would drag myself down to breakfast in jeans, birks, and a hoodie (with hood up) to drink a couple of coffees and gnaw a bagel, simply *radiating* "GO AWAY"

I got to work on my Mastodon client a bit today, which was nice!
More accurately, I decided to work on my Mastodon client a fair bit today instead of the other stuff I should have been doing.
Sadly it's still way way behind what I've seen of other clients that are in development and I still don't know if this will ever be a real product or not.
I like working on it anyway, though.
