if you read stuff on my website and it's more convenient to refer to me as your friend than as a person on the internet with a website you keep up with, I hereby befriend you

😬🧷: microblogging has neither the social immediacy of chat nor the considered aspect of email. while I still accept responsibility for the impact of what I write, until this crap gets an edit button, it may not ever be what I *meant*.

programmers sometimes hold very weird opinions because of cognitive dissonance over the value of their own time

preferring wood stain does not give you the high ground over people who prefer painted woodwork. if you really have woodwork uniform enough it doesn't need stain or paint, I'll agree it's better to not use them... but no one has this in reality

removing paint and removing wood stain both require horrendous chemicals and laborious processes. therefore it is no more legitimate to whinge about someone's painting woodwork than about whatever awful stain was present underneath said paint.

figuring out who i already know on some non-mega-service is a ridiculously hard problem and makes using "the facebook version" way way easier. that is.....bad

i want it to be easier for people to host their own stuff, but i *really* want it to be easier for people not to rely on mega-providers: everything under facebook's umbrella, everything authorizing through facebook in order to operate (and thereby not really being able to threaten facebook)

Show thread

the thing i like about this is that it maps to people's non-technical informal sense of how these days you figure out who owns what, and it's also hard for a social medium to block without blocking everything equivalent to a profile link

I think some of the indieweb "you must have a domain name and a permanent URI structure!" stuff is wayyy heavier-weight than it needs to be. If I know someone on mastodon, then that's sort of their canonical identity for me; if they link to a page from there, then they can change whatever they use to host that page and it's not a big deal if I'm traversing through mastodon to find that page.

doing some fun friend-of-a-friend stuff with e.g. patreons belonging to people followed by people I follow also seems possible with some lovely client-side crunching

it was really cool to use a glitch tool to get rss feeds from profile links of everybody i follow on twitter. i would love to be able to, e.g., iterate through my public follow lists on twitter, instagram, etc., grab the pages linked from profiles, then see all of the e.g. patreons rel-me-linked from those pages

there's got to be some way to allow some adversarial interoperability of social networks (bootstrapping off each other's graphs) using rel=me links from linktree style pages as profile links

elevator pitch: a text adventure game entitled "Monkey Wrench" wherein the player is an aging feature of a large codebase who (features are people too!) finds they've been deprecated and will be removed in the next release.

using only the repo tools available in the environment in which your project gets built, you must find a way to convince the project leads to reverse course and not remove you in the next release.

sabotage other functionality, file spurious bug reports against modules far away from you, whatever it takes - you must stay!

I want a frog to sit contentedly on my hand like a little wet philosopher

i mean everyone's been going over the sociopolitical stuff for months now but really the biggest proof cp2077 isn't cyberpunk is there are no cyberware cat ears

"ahahahahahahahaha?" actually, the singular is: ahahahahahahahahum

Also if you're not familiar with an individual one it's best to just use "european" they get really offended if you mix up a french with an italian for example. It has a lot to do with history

Also, the dirty bits are in Latin, a delightful custom.
