Tonight, I explained #mastodon to a few people at the #hardwareHackLab. Surprisingly, there was not much questions about it. All seemed pretty clear to them. The weird thing though, is I also showed Tweetdeck in order to explain a little bit where the interface found its inspiration. At the end, some thanked me for showing #Tweetdeck. 🤔
Ah yes, people on birbsite freaking out about Netflix knowing their viewing habits. Quite hilarious.
But Google reading all your email and correlating it with all the ad data they have is okay.
Or Facebook drawing a neat social graph across all your friends, family and interests, while retaining the messages you never submitted.
Brave new world.

It's funny to me when people ask me if I hate white people. As if my awareness of history and speaking plainly about the affects of it constitutes me hating an entire group of people because they lack melanin.
When white people ask me if I hate them, I view it as another attempt to distract from the obviousness of the results of their history.
It's not personal when I say white people are the primary American problem. It's just historical fact.

small efforts add up 👌
