So far, my relationship to Mastodon is to drop in and say something random every couple of days. Birbsite is doubling down on elevating the worst. Fackbook is still fine with fomenting genocide, apparently. I miss the early days of just about anything when we found our people rather than our mobs.

Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads. And if not enough people looked at the ads for Target or a legal firm specializing in slip-and-falls, then their bus route stopped existing. How stupid would that be. That's basically what we're doing right now, but with online.

I am visiting the city I spent my formative years in and moved away from over 17 years ago. Everyone I love has new best friends and doesn't like what I like. It's been obvious but never so clear as this weekend. I still love them all, but I secretly feel like the world is being aggressively destabilizing right now from the top down.
