Twitter was not bad because "hashtags this" or "trends that". Twitter was bad because:

1. Centralized.
2. They forced you to ID yourself with a phone number.
3. They hand your data to third party companies.
4. Most governments were using it to ID people saying bad things about them.
5. Ads and corporative campaigns.

I have just this evening found puzzling.stackexchange.com -- I hope this will be another toolbox for my . It's like chocolate-covered strawberries: two of my favourite things I feel like Jeff Atwood is looking out for me. Better late than never!

I loved Froggyme's radio show on Sunday, but I think it'd be funny to air as a one-time track on that show the Stephen Fry as Jeeves alarm clock sleepy-bye night-time relaxation routine. I have such an alarm clock.

Yesterday I earned the respect of a new geek friend when he saw I use the Firefox Focus browser for logging onto geocaching.com. His wife uses Firefox but Focus deletes all the cookies and history upon close.

I am happy my Rainbow-flag hoisting mastopals are active today. I have a question about US slang: what is the origins of the phrase "smells cookies" or "cookie-smelling"'s association with homosexuality? Okay to DM me the answer if you're shy, or if you're a DataLounger keeping anonymous/pseudonymous here on Mastodon.

There might not be a protective, omniscient god but a blind watchman or Master Absolute Neutral Simulation Developer, there may be imps and angels flipping coins to see who gets what, but whatever fates there are, I thank it or them for guiding me home safely as I drove on the freeway after misplacing my prescription glasses.

You can now stream my + / - 50 track compilation album "Retrospective" using #funkwhale here:

If you want to help me through a tight financial transition as I start my new temporary job with no pay for 4 weeks, you can pay me anything from Zero to Infinity for it, on #bandcamp here:

Yeah cats aren't the awesome meditators they're purported to be. My cat hectored me for most of my workout.

oooh morning meditation on anonradio.net:8000/anonradio ! I did the Eight Brocades Qigong last night, after 3 km of geocaching and I slept divinely.

Good evening , and ! Once again I would like to point out that I created a tilde, which will be a constant WIP from here on out. It's an intentional community like tilde.town. It runs on a freedombox. I want to promote free software, open hardware and more within it. Right now I have Mumble, IRC and Matrix servers running!

Boost please!
Anyone know a Spanish speaking singer or a reggae band willing to donate their skills to an album of music meant to motivate people to vote, donate, organizer, and demonstrate? This is intended for wide distribution (although most of it is covers, so licensed but not CC) and not for profit. Melanie Gruben at melanie.gruben@gmail.com would like to talk to them about collaboration. (or to you, if this is you!)

Today I learned:
The International Fortean Organization (INFO) is a network of professional Fortean researchers and writers, created with much of the material of the original Fortean Society which had begun in 1932 in the spirit of Charles Fort. The original society included many of New York's literati including Booth Tarkington, Ben Hecht, Clarence Darrow, Alexander Woollcott and Dorothy Parker. Oliver Wendell Holmes and H.L. Mencken were also early members.

So I guess this is an #introduction .

I'm an old-school blogger, professional #webdev, politically left. I am a poor artist and worse musician (guitar, bass, keys). Very, very few of my friends are here. So hi, new friends.
