Hi folks. I've switched instance. I have found a small number of people on here that I am happy to follow, but I found the "local" timeline was filling up with posts that don't interest me. So, to keep things "on point", I have moved to the scholar.social instance. I was able to transfer the data of those I am following on the .cloud instance, but I will lose the followers I had gained. You can re-follow me, if you like, at @thewayne
Just started watching Black Mirror. I am not sure what holds the episodes together (watched first 3, season 1 so far), but I do like the kind of short-story-tv mode, where each episode is it's own story. I thought I wouldn't like that, but a good short story is a lovely work, and a good episode can be that way.
Season 1 episode 1 threw me, though. I watched them in reverse order in season 1 accidentally, and I like that one least.
MY SON AND I JUST VOTED! (all caps moment)
It is very important to us to vote and as a parent I take it as a huge privilege and responsibility to teach my children to be aware of and enact their civic responsibilities.
I dislike when people say there is no hope for [insert something]. There is always hope and a vote is a vote and is worth as much as all the other votes and they all count.
Vote Vote Vote (whenever your elections may be) - because you can. #vote
@theartguy I can't seem to access the scholar.social instance in my browser for some reason. I think I have added it as an instance in Amaroq, but for import/export purposes I need to get to it on a desktop I think. I keep getting a 502 error. Is it down for you too, or am I looking in the wrong place?

Just got my holiday read. Looking forward to getting stuck into it. Anyone here read it?
‘Why I’m not using Twitter next month’
“What we need to do is quickly replace our reliance on the likes of Facebook and Twitter before politicians think that direct digital democracy through these platforms would be a good idea.”
Every Sunday I publish a weekly newsletter called 'Thought Shrapnel'. It's a roundup of the interesting stuff I come across loosely organised around the themes of #education #technology and #productivity
This morning's issue is here: http://mailchi.mp/dougbelshaw/thought-shrapnel-255-just-show-me-the-good-stuff
"Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."
Here's *MY* list of interests!
Just switched over to the Scholar Social instance, so you can find me here @TheWayneGibbons
