-A misanthrope who's probably not even in a good mental space to be romantically involved with anybody anyways!
And the beaus:
-Maybe It's A Bad Idea To Try To Change Yourself To Be What You Think The Girl You Had A Crush On Back In Freshman Year Wants Guy!

First the queers and furries build a space where they can be themselves.
Then the infosec folks find that it fits well with their values.
Then the communists flock to the first real alternative to capitalist monopoly on shortform burst communication.
Then the artists come to find new walls to paint and nobody to tell them no.
The intellectuals, the chroniclers, the priests and the prophets, singly and in droves.
Slowly, it builds. It's neat to build an oral history from inception. #mastodon
masto meta - federation
Things Mastodon and other OStatus & ActivityPub protocols will have to deal with eventually, as learned from email:
- How do you deal with spammers, especially those rapidly churning through domains/instances? Do your solutions make it harder for small/new legit instances to federate?
- What happens as instances diverge in formatting support? What are the graceful fallback points?
- How do you avoid phishing based on similar domain names? (Address books?)
"We know that if engineers, scientists, or doctors are paid ten or a hundred times more than a labourer, and that a weaver earns three times more than an agricultural labourer, and ten times more than a girl in a match factory, it is not by reason of their 'cost of production,' but by reason of a monopoly of education, or a monopoly of industry."

Hey! Small reminder: do NOT use unetbootin in 2017!
It was made at a time when ISOs images of Linux distros weren't compatible with USB, and changed their bootloaders to make them able to be booted from an USB stick.
This is NOT necessary nowadays as all modern distro images CAN boot from an USB stick. Changing their bootloader with unetbootin's hacks break some installers because they will think they booted from a CD-ROM, and will look for a CD-ROM, won't find it and you won't be able (cont.)
