Good morning Chuck; happy (hoppy?) Friday! #bunny

I will be hosting a session at this November, titled "Cooperating with Computers: our use and development of software for co-ops" πŸ‘πŸ’ΎπŸ˜»

Please boost!! :) goals are networking and resource sharing. Institute is mostly focused on housing coops but not exclusively!

Reddit is mostly garbage but you should be aware of this brave community exploring the notion that Corgi mixes are Corgis in disguise as another breed:

It'd be kind of nice if Mastodon let you bookmark statuses. It'd be handy for situations where someone posts a link, so that you could read it later and respond back to the original status.

[co-op developer hat on] So, I'm looking for a CRM to track potential new co-ops and then print off nifty reports about them. Any advice? I have to share it with people who are bright but not tech experts.

Me during my trip: "California is cool, I should get out of Vermont more!" 😎

Me upon returning home: "Jet-lag is pure hell, and no human should ever travel more than 1 time zone per week." 😴

any cultural linguists: (specifically those who speak Japanese and English)

My prof and I just had an interesting discussion about the English sense of "self".

Specifically he thinks the idea of "I enjoyed myself" doesn't compute in Japanese. Or this idea of "it feels good", when "I feel good" should suffice.

Aside from a grammatical explanation, might this play a factor in how people relate/communicate with each other?

β€œThe society whose modernization has reached the stage of integrated spectacle is characterized by the combined effect of five principal factors:

1. Incessant technological renewal
2. Integration of state and economy
3. Generalized secrecy
4. Unanswerable lies
5. Eternal present"


A quirk I love about modern english (early and current) is that whenever we noun a verb the stress moves from the first to the second syllable to denote "thing-ness"

Hence, you record a record; rebels rebel; a permit permits; an envelop envelopes; and you suspect the suspects.

Connected IRL with the Mighty Mighty @clayton himself at the today...

Hanging out at . Met @mattcropp in the flesh. Took eight pages of notes in two days, with one day left. All in all, an excellent conference.

Show more is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
