Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.
Two hours in, my workday has returned to normal. Had to deal with an unreasonable customer and got pissed off but, thankfully, the boss had my back again.
I really, really am honored to announce what I'm about to announce.
So when I started thinking about what hackers.town:2600 would be, I had a dream for some spoken word shows to be in the mix as well.
We are going to be doing our own podcast soon that will be broadcast as well... but I reached out to some old heroes of mine and asked permission.
Sometimes all you have to do is ask.
@HackerRadioShow has granted permission for us to rebroadcast their show. These guy are awesome and have a weekly show about hackers/hacking/making on WBAI in NYC... and we will be rebroadcasting their shows in our mix soon...
Go follow @HackerRadioShow for the love of god, show them numbers to get them excited about the fediverse, because they have a bullhorn.
@Rob_T_Firefly rob is one of their co-hosts, and plugs mastodon regularly on the air.
Let's return the favor.
I love you fediverse.
Now let's get out there and restore the future.

Engaging, positive, but cynical. Prefer discourse to arguing. If I boost, I agree.
