Do y'all sometimes feel like you're just out here floating in cyberspace? Because there's only 129,747 accounts on Mastodon. And some of them are duplicates. How is that possible? Should I get start registering a shitload of Laura-related handles and then sell them later? Like people did with domain names in the early days of the web? Will this make me rich in the Capitalist definition of the word? If yes, Should I buy a luxury treehouse?
LOL someone else called me “condescending” and “aggressive” I have to ask myself, would they have written the word “aggressive" if I were a man? 🤔
How come every time I go to find a gif, I find it, pass it on, and STILL fall down the @GIPHY hole?
Question: Do things the EXACT SAME WAY as all the credible orgs do things, or buck convention because who the hell came up with that unwritten Internet rule anyway?
you missed this week's newsletter, maybe, here's a link. But also, just sign up because I am too lazy to share these doodads everytime. http://laurahilliger.com/newsletter
As an open ‘expert’ (or whatever), I know that no one is intentionally ignoring their policies (I trust). The web has old docs, webpages aren’t always updated, process changes but isn’t communicated. So how do these things contribute to the erosion of trust?
I’m trying to cyberstalk people I’ve worked with in the past, and am realizing that no one uses social media anymore. Unless people are on Facebook? Which seems weird since you’re mostly tech activists…the web is lonely on Saturday.
I write my newsletter then pre-schedule a tweet or two asking people to sign up to my newsletter. But I can't pre-schedule a toot...can I? Something else to add to my list of to-dos "Find all the replacements for my workflow". Maybe @dajbelshaw will tell me what to do next week :) http://www.laurahilliger.com/newsletter/
I know but if I leave Twitter for good, I will miss out on people doing things like "Mashing up the tweets & the world of Kim Kardashian with the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard" - which, while not essential, is kind of positive for my emotional well being.
The @WeAreOpenCoop Monday Morning Meeting always makes me feel super jazzed about the week. Creative juice.
