My favorite use case rn is “you were a guest speaker in my class.”
LinkedIn is a website for connecting younger devs to my network.
If you use Keynote.app with lots of videos you gotta budget an extra 30min of prep time for the spinny beachball of death.
So I realize I've been thinking of social networks as graph-based and set-based.
Graph-based means you follow other users and get a feed of their posts. (E.g. Facebook, Goople, birdsite, here).
Set-based means you are either in or out and if you're in, your feed is the same as everyone else who's in. (E.g. subreddits, mailing lists, USENET groups, web fora.)
I'm finding this to be a useful distinction.

Fascism, cry for help Show more
Sorry for my absence. I'm fighting fascism right now. Things are serious in Brazil. A black man was murdered, stabbed 12 times while the murderer yelled the name of the fascist candidate.

We are forming a resistance. However, Brazil needs you. We are afraid. This is a cry for help. Search for news about Brazil and share them of you can, please.

pol — do a vote Show more
electoral politics is a miserable front with generally poor leverage, but if you can i highly recommend voting.
it’s said “if voting changed anything, it’d be illegal” and, well, it is increasingly illegal. voter disenfranchisement, intimidation, etc.
while i recognize that concessions and compromise in a den of bluebloods and fascists is not my idea of justice or progress, it remains a front. only through a diversity thereof are we strong.
this is not a shitpost.
The bouncer squints skeptically at the ID. "This really you?" he asks, half-jokingly.
