I just sent Joichi Ito’s dissertation on how we can intervene in complex systems over to my Kindle: joi.ito.com/the-practice-of-ch I am looking forward to getting lost and then feeling my way back out of the dark.

Where are the solid.mit.edu folks? Do these play nicely together?

I rage-quit Twitter at the end of November in 2016. As someone who has worked in online communities for close to 20 years, I couldn’t stand being a member of a community where the people in charge cared so very little for their users. We worked very hard at Flickr to make sure that people were safe. Your company isn’t the government and you can delete any account at any time for any reason. If you create a community, it’s your jobs to ensure that it’s safe for all.

Welcome new people! :blobcheer: 👏 👋

My superpower is waking up and reading or writing when I wake up, instead of tossing and turning and wishing I could go back to sleep.

Been a minute. I’m ready to try this again.

/me looks around.

Doing my 2 Minute Mindsweep™ is like stretching… I know I should do it. I know it makes everything better. I know life is better when I do. Also, it’s so easy to skip.

Today, I didn’t skip, and I’m feeling great.

/me reads medium.com/@Gargron/april-post because Mastodon’s rise has been very interesting to me, and I appreciate everything @Gargron has done, and open source software is important.

switching back over to the slack beta version to see if they are actually improving faster than the stock version

Who has/will build the 1-click OAuth integration to Mastodon instances that automatically backs up my archive?

Been digesting “Alien Knowledge” a.k.a. computers that have decided things are true but we can’t understand why - this morning after stumbling upon backchannel.com/our-machines-n

Oh, wow, remember stumble upon?

Anyway… I like the idea that we want to understand things…. but I’m not convinced we have to understand them for them to be true.

Also, maybe theory of relativity applies to ‘knowledge’ AND time?

Good morning! I’m starting my 2 minute mindsweep. What are you up to?
