Yesterday I ranted on the birdsite about how shitty product choices it makes end up harming users and causing unnecessary conflict. Examples were given about how Masdoton is so much better in terms of community management and content preferences. I ended it with a note that we make a conscious choice each day about what platform we choose to use. I just might have to follow my own advice, and post here more often.

Things Covid has proven:

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.
