@EthanDF @annaneat oh yeah ours does noooooooooooooo proper entity management but I can't get to that if I don't have good stuff to work from. :feels:

Also if you wanted to switch to Witches.town it's literally open for just 20 more min so.... get on it!

@cm_harlow Search seems to have a 50% hit/miss window for me. But if I google search a known username and the word mastodon I seem to be good at finding them. ... this is a utility I'd like to see improved.

@pobocks yeah, that is my thing. If I move I want to move early although being on a libtech one would be the ideal.

So for friends who are following me here, if I can swing it it's very likely that I'm moving to witches.town when their sign up window opens. Because reasons.

By the way if you didn't know about whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com it is a great source for finding US things out all in one painful blow. It's much emotionally easier (I've found) than learning about them by tweets, toots, or FB (posting w/o CW since not directly political & maybe helpful for those overwhelmed by the pain/anxiety of it all like I am).

WHAT THEY EXPECTED: a VC backed startup intending to destroy twitter
WHAT THEY GOT: a bunch of cyberpunk kids hanging out behind the mall

The largest harm of the cryptocurrency world, besides people losing money via scams (they're taking crazy bets and I don't have much sympathy), is that they vacuum energy and attention away from "regular" decentralization initiatives that simply want to distribute power away from monolith tech companies into the hands of ordinary developers and people, without also inventing crazy new economies and political systems in the process. You don't need a cryptocurrency to beat Twitter.

Folks worrying about instances just up and shutting down because someone got in over their head don't understand how many BBSes I opened and closed over the years.

It'll happen. It's not the end of the world. It does suck. It doesn't suck forever unless you give up.

If an instance you're on closes shop, you can and will find another if you want one. Go easy on the poor soul who had to end a dream.

@PlanetaryKnight OMG!! Kodi, congrats on that change despite the roughness of this moment. :sparkling_heart: :sparkling_heart: :sparkling_heart: :sparkling_heart:

he who makes a shitposter of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man

@pobocks Totes on board with doing that. And really, I'm a federated, networked, complex hyper-entity. ...like other girls... right?
