Trans PoC asking for help, Boosts OK
Hey, so I figured out that I don't need to feel bad about using the internet for its intended purpose: the sharing of information.
So, here's my asks to Trans PoC Masto:
1: How much did it cost you for facial hair removal, and what sort of procedure worked for you? Laser, electro, chemical, or do you just shave constantly?
2: What're your wig recommendations? This is new territory for me and I need more intel.
3: Does anyone have a good resource on reversing or treating going bald? Wigs are a pain in the ass, and not the most comfortable yet for me.
4. Can you share some starter makeup tutorials?
No, this isn't Photoshop. This is the Arctic right now.
Sea ice levels over great swathes of the Arctic ocean are at historic lows (in the 40-year-long satellite record) for this time of year.

You may not know me but I produce and edit a Free Software podcast called Libre Lounge. I want to take the podcast in some new directions, either LL itself, or a new podcast with a similar aim, but to do that, I'm going to need some help- production and editing especially. If you have those kinds of skills and can help, please send me a direct message or email me at email@example.com!
Did you already see the insanely beautiful Map of the #SolarSystem by Eleanor Lutz? 🌌
She published the #python code and a tutorial on how she made it. ❤️

On the reply/comment pattern that goes (playfully or dismissively): "you did not mention the thing that I think should be mentioned. Therefore, something is wrong." What it's aiming at & what it misses.
This quote from Dan Ellsberg is my favourite argument in favor of openness and against confidentiality: https://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2010/02/daniel-ellsberg-limitations-knowledge/
I missed this Microsoft blog post last month. Their data show that the FCC estimate of the number of Americans without broadband access is very low. FCC says 7.5% of Americans lack broadband, based on polling. Microsoft estimates, based on their usage data, that 49.5% of Americans lack broadband!
They make suggestions for how the FCC can improve their methodology.
For some reason I'm just noticing Wikipedia edit tags for the first time.
They are little labels that automatically get assigned to an edit.
Since January there's one for anonymous edits from Congress. Thanks @legoktm!
Here's an example from @congressedits
