I started Mastodon because I believe in decentralization. The more servers there are, and the more people are spread throughout them, the stronger the network is.
I encourage people to join other servers, or start their own.
However! mastodon.social is the gateway for those who are undecided, or who don't yet know about decentralization. It is also my baby just like the software itself. I do not appreciate hostility towards it when promoting the benefits of other servers. Thanks
a rough translation of Cigarette by Ben Folds Five:
mije Peta Jonsu li wile lape tan ni: ona li awen e meli ona lon tenpo suno. tenpo mute la meli ona li kalama wawa pi pilin ike.
taso ona li ken ala lape lon tenpo pimeja tan pilin ike ni: nasa pi pilin ala la meli ona li lape ala li seli suli e tomo kepeken palisa lili kasi.
@socks yeah, she's not much for defining things in thorough detail, which is probably one reason tp has such a colorful community history. It opens things up for people to contribute, but also to kibbitz and argue and maybe even overthink. If we take her at her word, tp was made by Sonja for Sonja and so it already fulfill its purpose whether or not the rest of us "get it" or agree on it. But it's such a fascinating and fun creation that we want to join in anyway.
I have a long way to go, but I need some sample sentences to figure out what words are needed—all I know is that I have plenty of words for taste distinction. >.>
I'd like it to be as simple as toki pona but with some extra vocabulary for improved clarity/the ability to also talk about bad things.
sina suno. jan pi ma ale li lukin e sina. sina ma tomo lon sewi nena.
jan li pana ala e suno lon anpa poki. ona li pana e ona lon palisa suli. ona li suno e tomo.
To all my dear friends (and the cheap ones too!) who’ve wondered where I’ve been this week...
Very busy with coursework (writing) which is rewarding and fun. I’m finding it absorbing but a lot of work.
I suspect I’ll do little if anything for Inktober (reasons).
I’ll probably spend October learning #TokiPona instead because why not! Happy and excited about that 😄
Exasperated having to deal with a couple of health issues. At my age you wonder if you’re stuck with them 😕
I miss you all! ❤️
