Hello friends! I'm working on something that's set in a high school so I'm looking for some real life inspiration in two forms:

1. Tell me a story about a time in high school where you got away with something you... probably shouldn't have?

2. If you're a parent with a kid in high school, what has been surprising to you about their experience? Both good and bad stuff -- anything that you were like "oh wow, that's... different from when I was in high school."

Thanks!

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" ๐Ÿ˜„

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)

A couple of people from various instances have mentioned that #Mastodon is confusing at first. So I decided to write a comprehensive guide on how to get started with Mastodon.

Hopefully this helps new users to Mastodon. Please do Boost if you feel it could be useful to others.

What this shows is, as the world warms, the land available to grow crops shrinks. Canada and Siberia look very big on the Mercator projection map, but they're not.
Africa is 30 million km2; Canada, less than 10.

For those of you who are on Twitter as well, me and Ali Spittel are co-hosting a new Twitter chat on technology, art and design. Our introductory 'Hello, World' chat will be this Sunday, 1PM New York time.

Explicitly inviting a woman (to speak at a conf, be interviewed, etc.) to fill your quota is so unbelievably disrespectful.

If you invite me, do it because you are interested in my work, not because I fit the empty "young woman" box you need to fill.

Hereโ€™s a survey about the social network #Mastodon. You are invited to take part regardless of your level of involvement or how often you use it or how long you've been here.

I donโ€™t work for them, Iโ€™m just curious.

What not-white-dude authors write challenging, weird stories? I am talking as out there as possible. My current favorite authors are joyce and pynchon, and to be honest most of the books I read are written by men. I would like to change that.

Can you imagine if the fediverse never had hashtags because that would be copying the twitter user who invented them?

Every social network copies features from each other.

Don't feel guilty for being inspired by existing successful platforms!

What's the decentralized state-of-the-art for organizing and promoting an #event without #facebook?

(Trying to organize some free events in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Venue organizers largely non-responsive through email.)

Great podcast with Nathalie Mezza-Garcia talking about the Blue Frontiers floating island project: Varyon currency, sea level rise impacts, governance innovation, floating infrastructure, environmental sustainability and restoration.

The whole "let me just pay for it, remove ads" argument against online tracking is problematic: Not everyone has the spare cash to pay for a bunch of online services.

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

I'm late to the #introductions, but here it goes. I'm 30, she/her, from #Germany. I work as a environmental scientist at a university, pursuing a PhD degree. I need some #python #programming skills to do that.
I'm fairly into #crafts, especially #fiberarts like #knitting and #sewing.
I enjoy #boardgames a lot, I also started playing #shadowrun about a year ago.
#games like #citiesskylines or #civilization5 have quite a few hours on my steam account.
Plus: Trying to improve my #french ;)
