New townies, new !

Just a fellow technomancer screaming into the void.

Posting about privacy, the dystopia of big tech and utopian small tech, cyberpunk, embedded/low-level stuff, retro computing, other arcane bits.

Restricting follow, will approve if you got an avi and some toots and don't seem like a total ghoul.

Tend to follow those that interact often enough, or are interesting, and aren't a firehose of toots.

Auto follow approval and follow back for townies.

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

funny how the discovery that Venmo transactions were public by default was this scandal, but the public ledger of cryptocurrencies is seen as this great feature

They called it the Web, or the Net, because it was supposed to connect us all.

But now it's called that because all it does is captures us.

wait you're telling me that the phrase isn't actually "male gays"?

I just now got a different email telling us to scan a QR code.

People have straight up forgot that you can click a link directly when it's in an email or digital file.
