I feel like I got PTSD from my last start-up and don’t quite know how to get back to normal.
Definitely feel like my Twitter now is effectively my political stuff and that anything else I write about confuses and annoys half the people following me. Try not to care - I mean it’s your stuff, you can say what you want - but I do think people have slightly forgotten that I work in tech and so product strategy and design work. The politics stuff may be damaging my career, is what I’m saying, as well as my ability to just talk about crap.

I’m trying a bit to express something very frustrating that happened today. I think a short pithy version would be by analogy that someone offered to help with a project, if I was prepared to change the project and it’s deliverables in such a way that I didn’t believe the project itself has a chance of success. So the options were (a) no support (b) a failed product.
Question for the crowd - a lot of people I know are over at mastodon.social - I'm at mastodon.cloud - is there any reason to transfer? Would it be easier to talk to people? Would discovery be easier? I don't really know the governance of either place, so I can't really make a judgement based on that. Any thoughts? Opinions? Comments?
Literally all I can think of since I've got here is this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PX_HljAELcA
@Andrew I don't like it. You could be any Andrew. Or all Andrews. It's weirding me out.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
