Mastodon users, new and old:
You can add a caption, or alt-text, to images you toot!
These captions make your toots more accessible, by giving people who can't see the image a description of what's in the image.
Just hover over the image over you attach it and type a description in the spot that says "Describe for the visually impaired" before you hit the TOOT! button.
Please also encourage Mastodon app authors to add caption functionality. And please boost. Thanks!
This is the worst take. I've complained before about the faux outrage over pumpkin spice being basically because it's gendered in pop culture as feminine. All of these articles basically exist to say "girls can't like things" and "boys can't like girly things because they're icky".

It's amazing how much work these days goes into re-inventing RPC.
HTTP API's, whether using JSON as the data encoding or not, is basically RPC. Celery is decentralized RPC. AMQP is decentralized, unreliable RPC.
It's even a buzzword: microservices are basically "let's use RPC as much as possible".
Anything highly-distributed evolves towards explicit message passing, which is basically... yep, RPC.
You would think we'd have come up with a semi-reasonable general solution by now.
