Think of all of the folks that think that Slack/ IM are a great way to communicate.

At some point they'll realize they've created an inbox with expectations. They'll start trying to figure out how to make themselves less available. The beauty of email is once you realize that you can delete messages and not have to see them again email becomes a game you can win.

Problem is for a lot of folks their inbox is their todo list because they don't have a good system for managing it outside of email.

The most ecological technology is one you use for a long time. This is especially true of computing technology, where the embodied energy is several magnitudes higher than the energy cost of using it.


That's great! If your new instance is nice, maybe I'll create a back-up identity there.

Is your new instance a good one? I have a few back-up accounts too for cases when a particular instance goes down.

Hey everyone. I have been over at @tomasino for the last fe years. I'm migrating here. If the migration asks you for a follow again, that's why.

That is always the risk with quick-and-dirty programming hacks, no matter what language you use. You deploy something and it works after a fashion but it's a mess when you look at the code and you can't easily maintain it.

"Not exemplary code, but does the trick."

That's the beauty of Python. You can hack together something relatively quickly to get a computational job done.

I may borrow your code for personal use, if I have your permission.
