I am disinterested in disputing "the best". I am, above all, interested in what *I* like, followed by what family & friends like (eg, present company), and then most broadly but of only practical interest because it dictates availability, what "'people" like.
I must not tweet.
Twitter is the mind-killer.
Twitter is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my tweets.
I will permit them to pass over me and through me.
And when they have gone past I will turn the inner eye to see their path.
Where the tweets have gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
(Apologies to the memory of Frank Herbert.)
The fundamental freedom to fork and the ability to federate are complementary.
Forking establishes a divide, federation is the set of techniques for communication, collaboration, and navigation across divides to create a whole that is distinct from and often greater than the sum of the parts.

i don't pay much attention to the seasons but I do notice how much of the day it's dark out. And as of yesterday, current amount of dark is: Too Much
At best, opening AMP's governance is about corps scratching each other's backs.
At worst, AMP is the proprietary web.
And now they plan to strong arm the rest of us into using it.
Server Financial Issue Show more
Today, I lost my job. In two weeks, the $25/month cost of the server will become a significant part of my expenses.
I don't want this server to die. The reality is we only have one member who posts regularly (VPG) but I am interested in what #Vegan Fedi thinks about this (if anything at all).
Please boost this so I can gauge if there's anyone beyond our local TL that may have help to lend.
Worst case scenario: I pass the torch.
I want this thing to grow!

software stewardship Show more
i’ve been thinking a lot about software stewardship and software cooperatives lately, in the context of taking responsibility for the craft as a class of craftspeople. i’ve got an essay on the subject on its third draft so maybe i’ll publish it soon but since im on the bus maybe i’ll just blither about it for a bit.
it’s one thing for workers to control the conditions of their toil but another for craftspeople to take responsibility for their craft, and we need to do both.

anyone have experience with a decent speech to text note taking app for android that doesn't uhh sell out your privacy? paid options are okay to recommend. (it's not for me)
@nico @freakboy3742 Yup! What technical skills would you say you have? I've helped them a bit by bringing to light that their documentation needed tweaking in some places, and I suspect that as I make apps for myself (as practice with #Python, which I'm still a beginner with) I'll be able to contribute by recording videos of working with the Beeware suite and keeping a public journal ("blog") of my experiences with it.

Hello everyone, I'm in the process of planning a mini conference for the students in my graduate program. I was wondering if anyone had any cool/ fun ideas for different "sessions." We want it to be exciting not just the regular 20-min research presentation schedule. Ex: we were thinking about people talking about their least favorite line of code.... please help!
