If you're about to respond to someone on Mastodon with advice or information or critique or disagreement, PLEASE read their post again to make sure that they have invited that.

If they haven't asked for input they probably don't want or need it, but if you still think they'll be interested in what you want to say, ASK before replying.

"Hey, are you asking for advice, or just venting?"

That's ALL you need to say.

I'm tagging it #netiquette (what a great word, haha) but it's universal.

Every time I use Apache Spark, I am delighted at the extensive API that lets me do what I want while handling most of the hard parts of dealing with terabytes of data.

Today in the United States, Monday April 16th is National Eggs Benedict day.

That wondrous feeling of future-utopia having now arrived when you read in the news that classic Sega titles are making their way to a Nintendo device.

my thoughts on the fediverse in a nutshell:

1. mastodon and pleroma aren't at war with each other. that is largely a war of the fringe, and is best ignored. if you stay out of only one discourse this year, make it this one.

2. more fediverse software is better than less. if you want to develop an AP server, now is a great time to do it!

3. i owe you all some simplified docs, because i keep promising them. but i hate writing things. so, eventually they will arrive. sorry it is taking so long!

@Sir_Boops Whoa whoa whoa wait, is this federation over tor .onion addresses?

If so heck yeah

I'm always amazed when I come back to a piece of software I wrote a while ago and see that people are still happily using it.

I really like the idea that eventually folks will join the fediverse not only because it aligns with their values/principles, but also because it just makes good sense in terms of reaching their audience.
