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.

xkcd standards cartoon, but about meetings

Situation: there is a meeting the technical people have to go to

"There's a lot discussed in this meeting the engineers don't need to be here for. Let's make a second shorter meeting for technical discussion so the engineers don't have to attend this business one to better utilize their time."

"Yeah! But, you know what, let's get them back in this business meeting too in case some technical stuff comes up."

Situation: there are two meetings the technical people have to go to

one benefit I just thought about federation: we don't see a screenshot of a social media post that's a screenshot

we just see the thing itself because it's federated. might not even know it's from something different, see a pixelfed or peertube on mastodon

just thinking, Code 46 is like Lost in Translation, except with some dystopia mixed in

oh hello video streaming service thinking people can't download a stream, you must be wondering why one user has so many streams at once

My self-boosts are a service to the fediverse. There's a lot of new people here, and I have some absolute bangers they haven't seen.

need to start a beef with someone, if only to get into a hack-off, Kate Libby/Dade Murphy style
