Thought I've been mulling: Designate a day of the month to data liberation.
Get YOUR data archived off SOMEONE ELSE'S system.
This isn't /removing/ it (unless you choose), but it is /getting a copy of what you created or want to control/.
So, that's the basic concept.
I'm thinking my way through the idea and am posting this to brainstorm.
My basic thought is to 1) organise the document as a FAQ, and 2) address process.
So let's dive in ....
I think it’s important to quit framing Mastodon as a Twitter replacement. They both have different uses!
Mastodon’s where you go to build/find community in a decentralized space, while Twitter’s where you go to emulate the feeling of sticking your head into a boiling vat of cooking oil.
I'm working on a draft proposal for converting our UK based online farm management collective into a not-for-profit open online co-operative society to promoting co-operative farm governance & more sustainable farming.

"On Jan. 13, 1920... an editorial-page feature of the [Times] dismissed the notion that a rocket could function in a vacuum and commented on the ideas of Robert H. Goddard...
Further investigation and experimentation have confirmed the findings of Isaac Newton in the 17th century, and it is now definitely established that a rocket can function in a vacuum as well as in an atmosphere.
The Times regrets the error."
The New York Times, 1920:
"That Professor Goddard, with his ‘chair’ in Clark College and the countenancing of the Smithsonian Institution, does not know the relation of action to reaction, and of the need to have something better than a vacuum against which to react — to say that would be absurd. Of course he only seems to lack the knowledge ladled out daily in high schools."
So Decent is pretty fucking amazing!

Discovering a lot of open source electronics CADs out there. The situation seems to me considerably better than the last time I looked at it.
I miss drawing electronic circuits 😌
