It is a pleasure to follow some of my favourite Twitter voices that have made it here:
And my fav bot:
Every year, Nova Scotia provides Boston with its official yuletide tree as a thank you for the city's response to the 1917 #HalifaxExplosion
An estimated 2,000 people died and 9,000 more were injured.
Aid from #Boston was the 1st to arrive, and the response has not been forgotten.
The #TreeForBoston will leave Halifax on Nov. 21st for its 1,100-kilometre journey to Massachusetts. A tree-lighting ceremony will take place at the Boston Common on Dec. 1st.
This is a very good article about US traffic deaths, which are now far above comparable nations. But it doesn't mention huge variation among US states 1/ https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/27/upshot/road-deaths-pedestrians-cyclists.html?action=click&module=Well&pgtype=Homepage§ion=US%20News
I've seen plenty of discussions in recent days over the network structure of Mastodon and whether it can remain decentralized as large commercial players begin taking an interest in the fediverse. I am neither an engineer nor an economist, but I do research the way media and information get distributed and I have some thoughts on this. A thread…
Elon Musk just banned the culture jamming anarchist publication CrimethInc. from Twitter after a request from Andy Ngo, the fascist activist who's beloved by multiple mass shooters.
CrimethInc. has had a Twitter account since 2008, has never violated Twitter policies, and has never been suspended until now.
#BetterBoston folks, be sure to take note of this important announcement:
Planned Service Outage tonight, starting at 11:45 PM on 11/20/2022
Better.Boston will be offline for 15-60 minutes to move our database to a server that can handle long-term growth of our community.
We expect that this will be the only outage we will need for months - all other server upgrades that are planned can happen behind the scenes, with no downtime needed.
Please Boost for visibility, thanks!
Hey, US folks newly running Mastodon instances: do Future You a *huge* favor, mitigate your potential liability, and register with the copyright office and designate an agent to receive DMCA reports *right now*. https://copyright.gov/dmca-directory/
It is profoundly intellectually lazy and offensive to the soul to think that the sum total of human expression could ever be mediated by any single entity.
I built the foundations of Twitter with my bare hands and watched in awe and sadness as it grew into a cynical temple of ego.
I delight in its destruction. We're better off here.
