If you want to spend one hour (in a very pleasant in-depth interview) helping a master thesis student working on social media and privacy, @oneironaut is still looking for Fediverse users to interview.

He might be especially interested in cooperative members' perspectives.

Et pour mon nouvel aspirateur, il est hyper efficace. Et surtout je ne suis plus du tout essouflée au bout de 10 minutes à le passer.

Je suis passée à un modèle avec sac pour allergique, où on a aucun contact avec la poussière.

Real-life, schematic writing is already optimal for real-life users, to bring sense and clarity to your personal notes, and ASCII is just a transposition of the English language (syntax) to a sequential, linear way to talk to computers.

We need a public-domain standard to write this first type of notes, and send them to anyone using any way we want.

We'll need to adapt keyboards so that encircling, pointing elements to others and creating relationships, would be as smooth as possible.
