Well, they are bringing back Willow, so that's the final sign of the apocalypse.

...checks trailer...

Actually this looks pretty good.

I have no interest in seeing Top Gun or anything else that glorifies the military.

Cycled 🚲 in to King's Cross today. My bike is used to being stored in a dry shed. Now it's raining and the bike is locked up outside. I can tell it's like "what the fuck, Dan?"

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain


The TAG has published First Public Draft Notes of Privacy Principles and Ethical Web Principles:

Bird site is getting less and less interesting and Mastodon is getting more interesting. Let’s keep this trend going.

Hi! I'm looking to hire someone to do privacy standards work for Apple at W3C, 3GPP, ISO, etc. I'm particularly interested in talking to folk who are underrepresented in tech. The position is remote, so you don't have to relocate! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.


I just willed a bee out of my room by staring at it and thinking "left... right... left..." until it flew out the window. I am the bee master now. 🐝
